Antonio Rüdiger – 7/10
HCity’s attackers found it incredibly hard to deal with the German’s aggressiveness. He denied any joy to Ferran Torres on the left side of defence and was a wall at the back for the Blues.
Chelsea came from behind against a much-changed Manchester City to snatch a late 2-1 win courtesy of goals from Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner.
Sergio Agüero squandered a penalty late in the closing stages of the first half for the hosts, while the Blues improved drastically in the second half and reaped the rewards for their efforts as they make the journey back to west London with three priceless points amid the race for Champions League qualification.
The snatch-and-grab victory makes it two out of two for Thomas Tuchel against Pep Guardiola since the German boss’ arrival to Stamford Bridge and the result hands his side a major confidence boost ahead of the Champions League final in three weeks’ time.
