Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne netted an excellent goal as the club snatched three points from Chelsea at Stamford Bridge to move back to the top of the English Premier League (EPL) table.

City rattled the Blues winning 1-0 in an almost a one sided match when De Bruyne netted in the second half to catapult the Pep Guardiola tutored side to top of the league on goal difference ahead of Manchester United.

Chelsea had an early chance after three minutes with N’Golo Kante picking out Alvaro Morata in the middle, only for the striker to head just wide of the target.

City could have had a goal shortly after when Gabriel Jesus charged down a poor Thibaut Courtois clearance, but luckily for Chelsea the ball flew over the bar.

The visitors started to control proceedings and were denied by Courtois on the half-hour mark when the Chelsea keeper got down low to thwart David Silva at his near post.

And the Chelsea No. 1 was called into action again on the stroke of half-time, this time saving Fernandinho’s header from close range.

Guardiola’s side continued to dominate the game right into the second half with Raheem Sterling missing a lot of scoring chances.

Chelsea managed to create an opening on the hour-mark when a quick free kick found Eden Hazard unmarked in the box, but Ederson was on hand to tip away his effort at goal.

The deadlock was finally broken in the 67th minute when De Bruyne received the ball on the edge of the area before firing a fine strike past Courtois to net the only goal of the game.

In other games, Tottenham Hotspurs whitewashed Huddersfield Town 4-0, Bournemouth played goalless with Leicester, while Manchester United battered Crystl Palace 4-0.

Elsewhere, Stoke City overpowered Southampton 2-1, West Bromwich Albion ended their encounter with Watford 2-2, while Wet Ham United ran away with a lone goal against Swansea City. (NAN)
