It was the most highly anticipated game of the weekend in the Premier League, and it got decided by a Kevin De Bruyne goal in the 67th minute. It was a former Blue who gave Manchester City the win at Stamford Bridge.
I think it was a very tactical game, very disciplined from both sides. We had more chances than Chelsea – not too many but a little bit. Everyone fought until the end and it’s a very nice win because it’s difficult to win here
the Belgium international told BT Sport after City’s 1-0 in London. As for his own goal, he couldn’t have been more laconic;
It’s a nice goal
was all the Manchester City midfielder said, keeping a very low profile. That’s what he did when he was asked about ‘taking revenge’ over the team that once had him, but let him go.
That’s the past. What happened, happened. I’ve no regrets over coming here. It made me stronger in a lot of ways. I made a decision at the time, Chelsea made a profit and I did what was best for me
De Bruyne said, remembering the short time and his only three Premier League appearances with Chelsea, before moving back to Germany, and way before City were happy to give him a second chance in England.
