James Milner and Fernandinho solid for Manchester City at Chelsea

James Milner was at his combative best as Manchester City drew 1-1 at Chelsea.

Tell Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart he'd be a spectator for most of the game at Chelsea before kickoff and he'd probably have laughed.

Going into the fixture, most City fans would have been happy with a point, but having watched how the pattern of play unfolded it'll be hard for them not to feel disappointed with a 1-1 stalemate. It was crucial not to lose, but in the end there was little danger of that actually happening.

The champions needed a big performance to lift them from the doldrums...

Chelsea, Man City play for a draw that keeps both teams happy in title race

Saturday's draw wasn't fun for the fans but does help both teams stay in lockstep atop the Prem.

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Manchester City in the Premier League.

1. Title rivals share points

There were a reported 650 million people looking on from across the globe but planet Earth may not have been too impressed by an often-turgid encounter between English football's two best teams. Five points remains the gap between leaders Chelsea and Manchester City.

As expected, neither team was ready to bet the farm on the whole affair. Given that their need for victory...

Under-siege Chelsea retained a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League after repelling Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

Vincent Kompany believes Manchester City can overhaul a five-point deficit to leaders Chelsea and keep hold of the Premier League title.

Jose Mourinho's team maintained the gap between themselves and second-placed City in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

But rather than view it as a missed opportunity, captain Kompany took heart from City's response after going a goal down.

"We did well to come back," he told Sky Sports. "Five points is not too much, it gives us enough confidence to carry...

Fenerbahce tracking Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko

A combination of form and fitness means that Edin Dzeko has made just six Premier League appearances for Man City this term.

Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko is a target for Turkish club Fenerbahce, sources have told ESPN FC.

Dzeko, who came off the bench late on of Saturday's draw at Chelsea, could face an uncertain future at City following the arrival of Wilfried Bony from Swanses earlier this month.

Bosnian international Dzeko has struggled for form and fitness this season, making just six Premier League appearances this term.

Jose Mourinho was tactically astute in Chelsea's draw vs. Man City

Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

Premier League football has a surprisingly complex attitude toward the simple concept of solidly collecting points.

Arsenal have constantly been criticised in recent years for being tactically naïve, Liverpool were mocked when sloppy defensive work cost them last season's title, and Manchester City's apparent lack of professionalism is often cited as the reason for their occasional struggles.

Yet when Chelsea show tactical intelligence, defend well and conduct themselves professionally throughout...
