Nevertheless, in the Stamford Bridge the things were very different and the ones of Pep Guardiola dominated to a group 'blue' strangely passive and conservative.
The party was very contested and Gabriel Jesús was the attendant to put the differences in the marker. Before the hour of party, the 'citizen' hunted a rebound, to turn and put the balloon between the legs dcon included rebound in a defender 'blue'. It was, curiously, the first finish to door of the City, that allowed to open the tin and open the way so that they arrived opportunity after opportunity in the area of Eduard Mendy.
Jesús almost increased the difference when Thiago Silva cleared his shot in the line of goal, whereas Aymeric Laporte could also have marked, after a lateral fault that fell him to the Spanish defence but his finish did not go between the sticks. Mendy, that even when it suffers stands out , saved the clearest occasion in a one against one with Jack Grealish, but the guardameta local won the duel.
It was an ideal beginning for a crucial week for the City, that already have to happen the page and prepare the party in front of the Paris Saint-Germain (Tuesday, 21:00 hours) in the Park of the Princes, by the phase groups of the Champions League, to close the 'week of the death' with a crash in front of the Liverpool in Anfield, next Sunday.
