Man City scored two-second half goals to put away a stubborn Chelsea squad 2-0 at the Citizens house. It was nil-nil at half. The match changer happened in the 50th minute. Demba Ba broke free in the box and this caused City keeper Joe Hart to force the action. A PK was awarded. This was a good call. Up stepped Frank Lampard. Shot left. Hart dived and stopped it stone cold.
After that the Citizens took control of the match. In the 62nd minute the Blues Ramires had a clear shot on goal. City’s Yaya Toure strips him of the ball. Buda bing buda boom we are off to the races. Yaya Toure dinks right moves left. Shot! Score inside the right post 62nd minute. That was it. The Citizens are out front 1-0. These two sequences of events lifted Man City to the win.
Carlos Tevez added a long range bomb from the top of the circle in the 85th minute for a 2-0 lead. It was all over but the shouting.
City doesn’t lose ground on Man U. Sir Alex and the boys are twelve points ahead of the Citizens.
This is good news for my guys Arsenal. We now trail the second place Blues by two points.
Tottenham sits in fourth place with 48 points. Spurs and West Ham play later today. Let’s hope lightening can strike again for us.
