De Bruyne has now scored five goals against Chelsea in the Premier League; the most by any former Blues player, who has represented them in the competition.

Manchester City dominated the first half and Chelsea were grateful to goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, who denied John Stones and De Bruyne before making the pick of his saves to deflect wide Jack Grealish’s shot before half-time.

Chelsea improved in the second half, with Romelu Lukaku forcing a fine save from Ederson before both Hakim Ziyech and Marcos Alonso blazed over.
