Manchester City will have to wait a little longer to be crowned Premier League champions after they were beaten 2-1 at home by Chelsea on Saturday.

City, who made nine changes for the game, could still secure the title this weekend if second-placed Manchester United lose at Aston Villa on Sunday.

Raheem Sterling put City ahead in the 44th minute and within two minutes they had a chance to double the lead from the penalty spot, but Sergio Aguero’s soft chip down the middle was easily saved by Edouard Mendy.

Chelsea drew level through a low drive from Hakim Ziyech in the 63rd minute and went on to grab a late winner through Marcos Alonso.

City felt they should have had another penalty when Sterling went down in the box with Kurt Zouma behind him.
But Tuchel’s team went on to grab a late winner through with Marcos Alonso’s scuffed shot floating past Ederson.
Chelsea beat City in the semi-final of the FA Cup on April 17 and will face them again in May 29th’s Champions League final.
