Match Commentary

94' FULL TIME - An entertaining game and a deserved win for City. The game changed on Ivanovic's sending off, which was harsh to say the least. Tevez and Toure looked very good indeed, while Mata and Hazard failed to fire for the Blues. City will beat the team to beat in the Premier League on this evidence. As curtain raisers for the season go, this was a good 'un.
93' Chelsea's corner is claimed by Pantilimon and then he releases Silva with City men breaking forward. Ramires blocks off Silva and should really be carded, but he's already on a yellow so the ref decides a ticking off will do.
92' Chelsea win a corner as Kolarov conceded possession needlessly.
