Kevin De Bruyne scores victor as Manchester City outclass Chelsea 1-0

Frank Lampard says Jose Mourinho was right to let Kevin De Bruyne leave Chelsea

Man City applied their trademark style, despite the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge, with De Bruyne's magical strike sealing a win. Hazard himself will be tasked with sustaining Alvaro Morata's movement.

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte suggested his team's midweek workload at Atletico Madrid was a mitigating factor in the 1-0 Premier League loss to Manchester City.

Not only did they get beaten by title rivals Manchester City, but it was their former player, Kevin de Bruyne, that scored the decisive goal with an absolute screamer from 20 yards.

Sometimes you have to accept a bad result, but I think the most important thing is to see the fantastic attitude and commitment of my players because they gave everything'. We are so sad for Benjamin; he's a guy who gives us a different spirit in the locker room.

"Juventus won the title against a really strong team like AC Milan [in 2011-12] but then the next summer they sold Thiago Silva and [Zlatan] Ibrahimovic [to Paris Saint-Germain]".

15' - JESUS CHANCE - City go close. We didn't take it. City created a chance and were very good to take the chances to score. "It is important to win and especially with the way we played", he said.

Fabian Delph described Manchester City's win at Chelsea as "massive", but warned the season is only just beginning.

Antonio Conte usually bounces back in style...

It meant Eden Hazard led the line as Chelsea played without a recognised striker until Michy Batshuayi came on in the second half.

"It's a muscular problem", he said. "I don't think he's available for the national team".

When pressed on the issue of fatigue following Chelsea's exertions in the Spanish capital, Conte said: "About this issue I have already spoken".

De Bruyne has 2 goals and 4 assists in 9 games this season, and his overall influence on games has grown since Guardiola began playing him in a deeper role than in the past. "It's a simple tactical decision".

Conte admitted that it will be hugely hard to defend the title - something that hasn't been done in the Premier League since 2009, even though he himself retained the Italian league the two times he tried to with Juventus.
