Lineups for Chelsea vs Manchester City announced

Manchester City returned to the top of the Premier League table after defeating champions Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.

Kevin De Bruyne's second half thunderbolt gave City a victory that keeps them top of the table, above Manchester United on goal difference, heading into the global break.

'I think you have to consider that in seven games we played with Arsenal, Manchester City, Tottenham and also Everton. They have scored five goals or more in their last three Premier League games, so Chelsea's first task will be to stop them.

How Conte must have envied Pep Guardiola, who could call on Gabriel Jesus after Sergio Aguero had been ruled out after suffering broken ribs in a auto crash. Against City, he was easily Chelsea's best attacker in the first half, going close with a header early on.

Chelsea Lineups: 31 Ederson, 2 Walker, 5 Stones, 30 Otamendi, 18 Delph, 17 De Bruyne, 25 Fernandinho, 21 Silva, 19 Sané, 33 Jesus, 7 Sterling.

Despite the absence of Sergio Aguero after the Argentine striker broke a rib in a vehicle crash on Thursday, City dominated and nearly took a first half lead when Thibaut Courtois pushed out Fernandinho's header.

"But, for sure, I like to repeat to him that in every game he must be decisive".

Another map based on the second vote share for the AfD shows that most of the party's support was in the east of Germany. The AfD won 12.6% of the vote and 94 seats - and with those seats will come financial resources and greater visibility.

Zorya were surprise winners by the same scoreline at Athletic Bilbao courtesy of Ihor Kharatin's first-half header. There were routine wins in Group K for Lazio and Nice , who both have six points from their opening two matches.

Antonio Conte: "Manchester City have started very well, they are in a great moment and they have a lot of confidence". I think it was after a game in pre-season that Pep said we need to get the mentality to hate to lose.

City may not score a more crucial goal in the whole campaign.

That was how the game ended as City moved top on the log due to goal difference but level on points with Manchester United with 19 points.

"Chelsea could not play and had to do long balls", Guardiola said. "If you are exhausted it is not simple to go box to box".

Alvaro Morata left plenty of Chelsea fans anxious when he walked off during the first half in the Blues' home fixture against Manchester City on Saturday.

The emergence of Brazil's Gabriel Jesus last season posed an immediate threat to Aguero's place in the starting team, and Guardiola was not afraid to leave the Argentine, who is on the verge of becoming City's all-time top goalscorer, on the bench on occasion.
