Left with one Kompany to be beat in defense Nikica Jelavic was taken down to leave Manchester City ten men and a hard task to win.
Four minutes later City was ahead after a superb David Silva solo effort curving the ball with his left foot into the far corner of the net. Dzeko later confirmed his technical striking ability by netting a late goal to make it 2 – 0 on the day.
Manchester City has now cut down Chelsea’s lead by three points after that win with three games at hand.
Chelsea on the other hand had a rough day against a resilient Aston Villa having their manager Mourinho, Willian and Ramires sent off for misconduct and bad play respectively.
Fabian Delph Aston Villa’s striker played a cheeky back heel to beat Peter Czech on goal for Chelsea in the 82nd minute of the game.
This was Chelsea’s fourth defeat of the season and Pellegrini will be on the lookout, referring to the three games at hand they have.
Mourinho was left ruing his early week statement saying that City were more of contenders than they were, a statement that will bite on his nerve given their lead on the top has been cut down from nine to six.
On the other hand Victor Wanyama’s Southampton beat Norwich City 4 – 2 while Nigerian star Odemwingi scored twice for Stoke to beat West Ham United 3 – 1 at the Britannia Stadium.
