Premier League, Chelsea overcome Manchester City 2-1: Records broken
Manchester City will have to wait for the Premier League title after Chelsea came from behind and sealed a 2-1 victory at the Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola's side can be crowned champions on Sunday if Aston Villa beat second-placed Manchester United at Villa Park. City led at half-time before the Blues found their way back and moved to third in the standings. Here's more.
Chelsea get a crucial win against City
The hosts took the lead just before half-time through Raheem Sterling's close-range strike. Sergio Aguero had a chance to make it 2-0 after Billy Gilmour fouled Gabriel Jesus, but the legendary striker made a mess of his Panenka penalty. Chelsea improved after in the second half and equalized with Hakim Ziyech finding the net. Marcos Alonso won it for Chelsea in injury time.
Chelsea unbeaten in all eight away league games under Tuchel
Chelsea are unbeaten in all eight away Premier League games under Thomas Tuchel. The former PSG boss is yet to lose away from home in all competitions since taking over as Chelsea's manager in January. Chelsea are unbeaten in 15 of their last 16 Premier League games (W10 D5 L1). The Blues have toppled Leicester City (63 points) to go third (64).
Penalty woes for Manchester City

Unwanted records for City

At 91 minutes and 54 seconds, Alonso's winner was the latest winning goal scored in an away Premier League game against Manchester City since Paul Scholes for Man United in April 2010 (92:41).
