The Cityzens entered this contest on the back of five wins across competitions after their last defeat against Arsenal on October 8. Their last game was a straightforward 3-0 win over 10-man Young Boys in the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola knew they had to put together a winning run if they were to pull away from the contending pack as he fielded a full-strength lineup for this game.

Manchester City made a good start to the game and edged the first-half possession stats 59-41 over Chelsea. However, both teams managed five shots on target in an end-to-end affair for the most part.

Erling Haaland gave City the lead from the spot after Marc Cucurella conceded a penalty in the 25th minute. The Blues, however, roared back into the game as the equalized just four minutes later from a pinpoint Thiago Silva header.

Raheem Sterling then put the hosts ahead with a finish from close-range, before Manuel Akanji leveled the game once again on the cusp of half-time.

Manchester City and Chelsea were deadlocked at 2-2 at the break.
