Kevin De Bruyne scored a brilliant winner as Premier League leaders Manchester City moved 13 points clear with a 1-0 victory over second-placed Chelsea.
The Belgian playmaker beat N’Golo Kante and then curled beyond Kepa Arrizabalaga from distance to settle a tight contest at the Etihad Stadium with 20 minutes remaining.

It was a moment of magic worthy of winning any game but was the least City deserved having dominated against the side that beat them in last season’s Champions League final.
The win ensured a double for Pep Guardiola’s side, who have now won 12 Premier League matches in a row, over Chelsea this season and possibly ended the Londoners’ title chances.
