Great performance, great result. Well done City and a hearty fuck you to the refereeing department again. What a disgrace to the human race they are.

Great win.  Chelsea will drop more points as they're not as good as the meedja would have us believe.  Kuns yellow card was possibly the worst decision I've ever seen.  It looked as though he was about to blow for a penalty but changed his mind.

Best performance by us this year. Well done City seized the opportunity Chelsea give them with both hands.

Let's hope Black Cats are not as organised on Weds!!
You know how hard games like that are mid week v teams like Sunderland!
So assume Demi as Mangala (nightmare ) will be out.
Loved the singing re how many men left playing  8)

In the end, just enough City players came to the party to make a difference and get a good win, but it took Lampard and Milner's introduction to make it happen. Thank goodness for them - and Aguero.

For me, Yaya was next to useless. Even his goal needed a deflection.

Yet another lazy performance from the big man - too slow in both thought and deed putting himself and his team-mates under unnecessary pressure. There was a moment early in the second half when he received a ball just inside his own half when he had what must have been 20 yards of open grass in front of him that he could have run on into - but he dithering and eventually opted for a short lateral pass (which he fluffed) just as a Saints player got to him - and he lost the ball. That just about summed up his performances this season, and losing the ball in the lead up to Mangala's sending off topped off a really shit effort.

Hart's kicking and distribution are still woeful as well.

At least Clichy's finish managed to put a big fat smile on my face :D

Every time the ball is passed back to Joe Hart (the guy with the ulgy looking rat on his lip) I start to panic.

Yaya cannot even be bothered to warm up properly. I would not lose sleep if he went on his merry way.

Navas is such a disappointment, he could and should be so good but just isn't.

A good result, starting to get a bit of momentum. We all know it should have been at least four, the referee (Mr Magoo) might find his next game is a conference game, though that might be too much for him.

Well considering Chelsea have supposedly been rampant this season and we dont seem to have got going 6 point gap isnt so bad?!

We looked a lot better today, hope we are working up a head of steam now!

The strange facial hair sprouting is part of Movember to raise awareness of mens' health so check yer bits lads! 8)
Thought the team played better yesterday Lampard is a great settler of madness when he comes on.
Yaya is improving but the more occasional rather than constant dawdling did get Mangala in hot water, mind
he needs to stop diving in too!!
Think Demi will be more reliable Weds (imagine saying that last season) not sure who'll step in for Kompany?
Still winning PL has never been a given so games like Weds all part of the test.
Good thing is getting wins and no Silva so gotta get better when he's back eh?

Navas is such a disappointment....

Apparently not  ;)  -

Played a vital role in helping to suppress Saint's attacking full backs - according to Jermaine Jenas.

Joking aside, I thought this article was an interesting read. As well as Navas, even Nasri gets some positive analysis. Yaya on the other hand barely gets a mention, which (you will have all ascertained from my previous comments) does not surprise me one jot!

I'm wondering if Yaya will be at CB for the next match, we know he can play there as he did for Barce in the Champs league...

Bloody hell you don't half change your mind during a game. From the ridiculous to the sublime in about 4 posts

My advice is wait until the game has finished.  ;)

My observation at half time was we were not incisive enough, a bit tawdy and slow at times, that does not detract from my previous comments that it was still the best I have seen City start a game this season. But we were not clinical enough in and around the area that matters. Second half we put that right attacking the bye line and their box with real pace and purpose.

Overall far and away our best performance this season, and signs we are st6arting to get it together.
