  • Manchester City battle back for crucial win over Chelsea
Sharjah24- Reuters: Manchester City returned to winning ways with a 2-1 success over Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, ending the Londoners' run of six straight victories and keeping Pep Guardiola's side nine points behind leaders Liverpool.
City's loss at Anfield before the international break made this a key game but they had to work for their three points, coming from behind against Frank Lampard's enterprising side.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante had given the visitors the lead but a deflected strike from Kevin De Bruyne and a fine Riyad Mahrez effort put City in front before halftime.
