Man City 1 - 3 Chelsea
Man City- Robihno
Chelsea - 1) Carvalho
Cech - Looked solid. Was defended well by the defender except on few occasions.
A. Cole - Decent game. Looked solid going forward. Decent crosses in. Had a shot from outside the box just went over the goal (a screamer)
Terry - Had a decent till the time he got a Red card, yes a Red card. Refree got it all wrong. A bad day for Terry.
Carvalho - Had a Brilliant game. Scored the equaliser, made some crucial tackle without which scorecard could have been lot different. Great day for him though.
Bosingwa - Looked good going forward and also in defense. His crosses were amazing.
Mikel - Had a tough game, unlike what he had against Pompey. At times he held on to the ball longer than he had to only increasing pressure on him. He went forward for an attack once had a nice run there when he went past 3 of Man City defenders only to give away the ball to the fourth one but still was a nice try. All an all had decent game. Expect a better performance from him next time.
Lampard - At his very best. Scoring a second goal giving Chelsea the Lead. The Finish was excellent. Way to go Lampard!
Deco - Good to see Deco the way he has adapted to the conditions and the Physical nature of the Premier league. To see Deco tackling for the ball upfront and to win it like the few times he did, something he is not known to do.
Malouda - Well disappointing nothing else. Crosses were as poor as always, in fact I cant recollect whether did he even successfully cross one in (Did he guys?). And missed a simple free header from a 6 yard box only to hit the cross bar, should have done better on that occasion and scored the goal.
Joe Cole - Decent game with one assist (Anelka Goal)
