Chelsea made it 8th consecutive wins in the Premier League, as they came from behind to extend their lead at the top of the table with a 3-1 victory over Manchester City at the Etihad.

An own goal from Gary Cahill in the first half had put City in the lead and on course to go top, but Chelsea fought back after the break with strikes from Diego Costa, Willian and Eden Hazard to send them four points clear at the summit.

City were reduced to nine men deep into second-half injury time after Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho were both sent off.

The defeat for City means Pep Guardiola’s side have still not won at home in the league since September 17th.
