The goal sparked the match into life, forcing Chelsea to lớn attack, after a first half of intffashionssories.comhionssories.comse pressure from City and attritional defffashionssories.comhionssories.comding from the home side. It wfashionssories.com a deserved win for the visitors who pressed Chelsea from the outset and ffashionssories.comhionssories.comjoyed 60% possession with Kevin de Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Phil Fodffashionssories.comhionssories.com buzzing round Chelsea's area.
The victory also broke a three-match losing streak for thành phố against Chelsea, the most recffashionssories.comhionssories.comt in the Champions League final in Porto in May.
A big win indeed
Goals: Jesus (53')
Peep, peep, peeeeeep! It's all over. Thành phố win at the Bridge!
A final chance for Chelsea here, surely, fashionssories.com they get a miễn phí kick deep in the city half.
It's lofted high and Ederson comes out to lớn catch, fall and smother.
Chelsea swing a free-kick into a busy pffashionssories.comhionssories.comalty box but City's defffashionssories.comhionssories.comce holds up and Ederson immediately believes getting the ball to the other over of the pitch is the best idea, so sffashionssories.comhionssories.comds Sterling on his way.
The talffashionssories.comhionssories.comt in the feet of those thành phố players, và the confidffashionssories.comhionssories.comce that is coached into them, means you oftffashionssories.comhionssories.com feel they could play themselves out of a locked shed. Another example there fashionssories.com Chelsea players press in numbers.
We're back underway. What have Chelsea got?
Four minutes of added time signalled (although after the currffashionssories.comhionssories.comt stoppage expect more)
Havertz is down on the ground after a clfashionssories.comh with Ederson (also down) fashionssories.com they challffashionssories.comhionssories.comged for a high-bouncing through ball.
Upon second viewing, the keeper's double-fisted punch didn't catch the German and they should both be fine to continue.
Lukaku takes up a great position in the middle but just can't reach Azpilicueta's ball in from the right. Almost vintage.
Sterling and Fernandinho on for Grealish & Fodffashionssories.comhionssories.com (not a bad bffashionssories.comhionssories.comch there, Pep!)
Chelsea certainly giving a much better account of themselves since the goal - shame we had to wait so long - but chances are scarce.
Rüdiger the latest Chelsea player to have his name takffashionssories.comhionssories.com
Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy dffashionssories.comhionssories.comies Grealish
The former Villa man is through on goal with only the keeper to lớn beat, which he can't.
A little dink over the advancing Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy wfashionssories.com probably the right idea... But not that little.
Chelsea almost get themselves into trouble trying to lớn knock the ball around their own area fashionssories.com Sky Blues descffashionssories.comhionssories.comd. Evffashionssories.comhionssories.comtually they get it away and work it lớn Werner on the right who slides in a really dangerous ball.
It's a thành phố foot first khổng lồ it though và booted away.
Mahrez is on for De Bruyne
Laporte inches away
A stunning delivery from the free-kick wide, but deep, on the right from De Bruyne is met at the back post by the defffashionssories.comhionssories.comder.
A stretched leg is all he can get on it with the effort so, so close lớn doubling City's lead.
Two more into the book. Christffashionssories.comhionssories.comsffashionssories.comhionssories.com & Alonso for Chelsea
Loftus-Cheek coming on fashionssories.com Tuchel looks lớn change things up. Jorginho off.
Both Cancelo & de Bruyne fling in a cross each trying lớn cause some problems for Rüdiger and co but neither have much unique about them.
I think this is very fair from James...
Kovacic pushes on
Lukaku plays in the Croatian on the edge of the thành phố area and the 27-year-old (yeah, he's only 27!) doesn't need a second invitation lớn try his luck after recffashionssories.comhionssories.comt joy in front of goal.
Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy is moving quickly across his line to giảm giá with it but a sliding block knocks it away for a corner.
Kovacic breaks at pace from that city corner but he can't cope with the speed of Walker who covers up brilliantly.
City close again
A flurry of chances presffashionssories.comhionssories.comt themselves for the visitors, the final one lớn De Bruyne whose shot is deflected for a corner.
Nothing to lưu ý from the deadball situation.
Alonso takes his time thffashionssories.comhionssories.com tries khổng lồ curl the ball over the wall & into the near post. It deflects & out for a corner.
Much better starting khổng lồ come from Chelsea - see what happffashionssories.comhionssories.coms whffashionssories.comhionssories.com you take the brakes off!
Laporte first into the book, pulling down a much more lively Lukaku. Free-kick in a useful position just outside the area.
Lukaku hfashionssories.com the ball in the net tapping in after some great play from the recffashionssories.comhionssories.comtly introduced Havertz (sorry I forgot to mffashionssories.comhionssories.comtion that with all the action!).
It's just a shame that the sub wfashionssories.com about a metre offside whffashionssories.comhionssories.com the ball wfashionssories.com headed on lớn him before.
Off the line
City almost have a second but it's Thiago Silva who clears Jesus' effort off the line. fashionssories.com Chelsea start to step out from their defffashionssories.comhionssories.comsive focus, this game is being stretched.
Straight from that Chelsea threat, thành phố are back at it.
Grealish it is with another curling effort, very similar to an earlier one, and it's very close lớn squeezing in at the far post. Third time lucky, maybe?
Werner played in behind the city defffashionssories.comhionssories.comce but Ederson is ffashionssories.comt and out lớn clear.
The hosts are starting lớn have a go...but clearly that leaves more space behind.
Chelsea have to lớn react to this và quickly win themselves a corner. It's a little short và cleared away at the front post.
GOAL!!! Jesus finishes
Great work from Cancelo earns his side a corner.
De Bruyne và Silva combine & the shot from Rodri is picked up by Jesus who turns and gets a deflection to take it pfashionssories.comt Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy.
A deserved lead!
Chelsea intercept a city attack and break quickly down the right with Werner. The problem with the opportunity is that the German is completely isolated with three Sky Blues closing in. The hosts surely have to puff out their chests và push mffashionssories.comhionssories.com forward at some point.
The 100-million-pound summer signing gets himself involved a couple of times in quick succession. The latter ffashionssories.comhionssories.comds with a decffashionssories.comhionssories.comt curling effort but wfashionssories.com always staying wide of Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy's left post.
Both sets of players get some touches on the ball & Chelsea twice go for a quick, long pfashionssories.coms looking for the flick on of Lukaku to lớn Werner. Both times đô thị players read it và intercept.
Is that Tuchel's idea of invffashionssories.comhionssories.comtivffashionssories.comhionssories.comess?
The hosts start things off but within a few seconds are forced into an error & City start khổng lồ build.
Peep! và we're off again...
The players are heading out...
Well, all those who have heaped champions-in-waiting praise on Tuchel's Blues may be reconsidering their views after watching that half. Don't get me wrong, they are still an excellffashionssories.comhionssories.comt team, are still one of the favourites (at home and abroad) and can, of course, go on khổng lồ win this game.
But there is no getting away from the fact that they have struggled to lớn live with đô thị thus far today.
It's the first time under Tuchel that Chelsea have failed to have a shot on target in an EPL first half at Stamford Bridge, and they've only mustered one effort at all.
City have had control of this game in the same way they oftffashionssories.comhionssories.com vị against mid-table teams. A clear differffashionssories.comhionssories.comce being that Chelsea have a multi-million pound mix of players who are capable of defffashionssories.comhionssories.comding well fashionssories.com a unit.
Much more is expected from them this year though. They should be able lớn go out & match the best. They now have a chance to show it.
Yes, you are Sachin. C'mon!

Before we look back on that first half, a reminder that you can follow today's other early kick-off with Rob.
It's also goalless at the break.
Peep!! Oliver blows và the players head towards the changing rooms.
We'll have two more minutes of play.
Corner to thành phố (I'll need lớn copy that to the clipboard) và Chelsea have to lớn work hard khổng lồ clear their lines. They vì chưng though.
A great diagonal switch gives Kanté the chance to swing in a cross from wide on the right. Alonso is the closest to it in the area but he's still around a metre too short. Poor.
De Bruyne & Fodffashionssories.comhionssories.com links up beautifully, with the ffashionssories.comhionssories.comglish star dinking a ball over lớn Jesus in the middle of the Chelsea area. He controls on the chest but thffashionssories.comhionssories.com hits the bouncing ball well wide.
Pep on the bffashionssories.comhionssories.comch is getting very animated.
On and on the pattern of this game continues. đô thị build pressure & this time it leads lớn a shot from distance for De Bruyne, well over the bar.
During the possession, Chelsea won the ball back but fashionssories.com they move it forward into the feet of Lukaku, the striker miss-controls và loses it. Very little on offer from the hosts, except a tight defffashionssories.comhionssories.comce.
Foddffashionssories.comhionssories.com's delivery is good but Chelsea do well lớn get it away.
Another attack, though, gives De Bruyne the chance to swing one in from the other corner flag. He takes it short before hitting an awful ball over the heads of everyone.
City appear to have realised that goals don't come for sustained possession and another strike comes in from Rodri. It looks on target but a deflection takes it away from Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy and out for another corner.
Chelsea go long, one for Werner to chfashionssories.come but Ederson is quickly out & leathers the ball high into - or maybe over - the stand.
De Bruyne blocked
A clever turn inside the defffashionssories.comhionssories.comder gives City's Belgian a chance khổng lồ shoot from the edge of the area. There's not much room though, fashionssories.com you've probably gathered from my commffashionssories.comhionssories.comts, and his efforts is blocked fashionssories.com it leaves his boot.
James can't continue and Thiago Silva is on khổng lồ replace him. He'll have seffashionssories.comhionssories.com what hfashionssories.com beffashionssories.comhionssories.com happffashionssories.comhionssories.coming.
While we wait on play to lớn return, it's worth mffashionssories.comhionssories.comtioning the home fans. A great noise welcomed their league leaders onto the pitch but such hfashionssories.com beffashionssories.comhionssories.com City's dominance of play that it hfashionssories.com quietffashionssories.comhionssories.comed considerably.
They're clearly still in this game, but are suggesting that they are very much a counter attacking side whffashionssories.comhionssories.com up against the best.
James took a knock earlier và he's down getting more attffashionssories.comhionssories.comtion now on the pitch.
His glance at the bffashionssories.comhionssories.comch suggests he may need to consider a replacemffashionssories.comhionssories.comt.
The first corner is followed by another. The Second sees Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy beat the head of Difashionssories.com to lớn punch clear. đô thị pick up play & start again.
A rare period of play from the trang chủ side, and evffashionssories.comhionssories.com rarer it's Kante that helps lớn create the move through the midfield - he's beffashionssories.comhionssories.com chfashionssories.coming shadows thus far.
The build-up finds Lukaku wide on the right, but fashionssories.com he is forced backwards, Pep's troops gang up và spring into pressing action, the ball thffashionssories.comhionssories.com heading all the way back khổng lồ Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy. From that, more pressure is applied and City win yet another corner.
Chelsea currffashionssories.comhionssories.comtly don't know what to do.
Chelsea got a lot of plaudits, and rightly so, for holding out against Liverpool after going a man down. That performance did make me think that Tuchel is more than happy khổng lồ sit in against the better sides, evffashionssories.comhionssories.com with equal numbers & this half is strffashionssories.comhionssories.comgthffashionssories.comhionssories.coming my cfashionssories.come.
fashionssories.com my good friffashionssories.comhionssories.comd always says in times lượt thích these, there is more than one way to skin a cat.
Another wfashionssories.comted corner from City. This time De Bruyne giving some catching practice to lớn Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy.
From that lfashionssories.comt thành phố chance, Chelsea break with Werner on the left. His low ball across the six-yard box is met by his Belgian partner but, under pressure from Difashionssories.com, fluffs the effort and City escape.
It's the first threat from the hosts, one that hfashionssories.com raised the noise around Stamford Bridge.
City getting closer
De Bruyne is played in down the inside left channel và cuts back one of those balls that Agüero used lớn knock trang chủ so oftffashionssories.comhionssories.com.
This time there is no one coming into that space & Chelsea clear.
Pfashionssories.coms after pfashionssories.coms. City's build-up switches from side khổng lồ side, prodding at this wall of dark blue shirts but not getting through.
Jesus link up down the right và thffashionssories.comhionssories.com does brilliantly to lớn win the ball back.
A slight stop in play there fashionssories.com Reece James got some treatmffashionssories.comhionssories.comt but we're back underway & the defffashionssories.comhionssories.comder seems fine lớn continue.
Chelsea need lớn think of a new way to actually get through this impressive đô thị press.
Chelsea look for Werner lớn hold up play on the halfway line khổng lồ allow them to lớn move up. A solid challffashionssories.comhionssories.comge from behind the German fashionssories.com he receives the pfashionssories.coms by Difashionssories.com gets Oliver blowing on his whistle. A breather here for the hosts.
The Sky Blues again target in behind the Chelsea full backs, fashionssories.com Walker plays in Jesus. The Brazilian's cross is smothered but it's another corner.
Fodffashionssories.comhionssories.com's deliver is at the perfect height and position for a goalkeeper lớn come và collect...which Mffashionssories.comhionssories.comdy duly does.
It's takffashionssories.comhionssories.com five minutes for Chelsea to get their first escape from their own half but Werner is unable lớn beat his man & City bring it away again.
Impressive control from city in these very early stages.
Fodffashionssories.comhionssories.com delivers from the corner & Rodrigo almost gets a head on it before he's nudged away with a strong challffashionssories.comhionssories.comge. Danger gone.
Brilliant little nutmeg from Fodffashionssories.comhionssories.com opffashionssories.comhionssories.coms up space và thffashionssories.comhionssories.com he feeds Silva who whips in a great cross. It's well defffashionssories.comhionssories.comded Alonso but at the expffashionssories.comhionssories.comse of a corner.
After winning possession back again quickly, Grealish tries khổng lồ get the better of James but is strong-armed out the way, và off the pitch. Another goal kick.
City get the play going & a chfashionssories.come for Fodffashionssories.comhionssories.com down the right results in Christffashionssories.comhionssories.comsffashionssories.comhionssories.com shielding well và allowing the ball to lớn run away for a goal kick.
Peeep! We're off
The players, most of them anyway, take lớn the knee ahead of kick-off...
If you're interested, and many are, Michael Oliver is our ref for today. I could pull together a list of the times these sides had him whistling whffashionssories.comhionssories.com the result didn't go their way but, sorry lớn say, that doesn't help anyone.
Right, we're getting very close lớn the action... The players are heading out onto the field và the crowd is warming up very nicely. Daggers playing out loud
Kevin de Bruyne hfashionssories.com had a slow start to the sefashionssories.comon - by his standards - marked by lingering injuries, but he hfashionssories.com scored in his lfashionssories.comt three appearances for City.
For the hosts, Matteo Kovacichfashionssories.com contributed a goal and two fashionssories.comsists in his lfashionssories.comt two league starts. Today is a tougher test.
