Chelsea dent Manchester City’s hope for a quadruple

Chelsea emerged victorious on Saturday thanks to a 1-0 win against Manchester City to dent their chase for a quadruple for the season.

Manchester City were further damaged when Kelvin De Bruyne picked an ankle injury ahead of the semi final tie against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League and cup final against Tottenham.

The win was another success under coach Thomas Tuchel with the Blue set to play the winner between Southampton and Leicester next moth May 15th.

Pep Guardiola introduced eight changes from the side that faced Borrusia Dortmund in the Champions League among them was Riyard Mahrez and Foden. Chelsea on the other hand made only three changes.

The Blues started off on a positive note that saw Timo Werner’s goal ruled for an outside earlier in the match.

Guardiola will have something to correct given the danger imposed by their rivals who attacked with ease through counters ahead of the Champions League clash given the form of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar on the flanks.

Moroccan forward Ziyech was on target thanks to Timo Werner who beat the City defense and set it for the former Ajax man to roll the ball past an empty net for the club’s only goal of the match.
