Comments:

League position: 1st Manchester City had won their last eight Premier League home games, keeping seven clean sheets. Sergio Aguero had now scored ten goals in his last nine Premier League appearances.

Comments:

League position: 16th This was Chelsea's first defeat in 29 Premier League games played in the month of August since a 2-1 defeat at Middlesbrough in 2006 (won 23 and drawn five). This was the first time they had failed to win either of their opening two Premier League games since 1998. Chelsea had now won just one of their last eight visits to the Etihad Stadium in all competitions (drawn one and lost six).
