Chelsea inflicted Manchester City's first defeat of the season in a compelling contest at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea had lost to Tottenham and Wolves in their prior three league games, with many anticipating a heavy defeat to City.

Infrequent goalscorer N'Golo Kante gave Chelsea the lead on the stroke of half-time, completing a devastating counter-attack by scoring with the Blues' first shot of the game, and David Luiz headed in a second 12 minutes from time.

City had been unbeaten in 21 games, since April's defeat in the Manchester derby, and now sit a point behind Liverpool.

Barkley headed wide for Chelsea and Fernandinho fired off target for City before Jesus was denied by Kepa in stoppage time.

Strikers were conspicuous by their absence, with Chelsea's Eden Hazard and City's Raheem Sterling deployed in the 'false nine' position, and the hosts absorbed repeated pressure from Pep Guardiola's men before earning a 2-0 win.

Ederson parried Willian's free-kick after Fernandinho's mis-timed challenge on the Chelsea forward.
