Comments:

League position: 1st Chelsea had won all ten of their previous Premier League home games in 2014-15. They won the first 11 from the start of the 2005-06 season. David Silva's goal was the first that Chelsea had conceded in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge since Charlie Austin netted for Queens Park Rangers on 1 November 2014. They had kept a clean sheet in 15 of their 18 previous home games in the Premier League. This was Loic Remy’s fifth goal for Chelsea, all have been scored at Stamford Bridge. John Terry, Branislav Ivanovic and Eden Hazard have started every Premier League game this season so far. Ruben Loftus-Cheek replaced Oscar in the second minute of added time in the second half.

Comments:

League position: 2nd This was the first time that Frank Lampard had played for the visiting team at Stamford Bridge since he appeared in West Ham United's 4-2 defeat in the Premier League on 19 August 2000. City completed a year of scoring in every Premier League away game since their visit to Norwich City on 8 February 2014. They had now failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six Premier League games - their worst such run since a sequence of seven games from May to September in 2012. They have not kept a clean sheet in their last seven games in all competitions. They have only won two Premier League games at Stamford Bridge, both with the 4-2 scoreline. The last was on 27 February 2010 with Carlos Tevez and Craig Bellamy scoring two each for the Citizens and two for Frank Lampard for Chelsea.
