The heroes and the villains from a close encounter at Stamford Bridge.
In arguably the most highly anticipated match of the Premier League this weekend, a late Fernando Torres strike earned all three points for Chelsea against Manchester City.
It was a cruel blow for Manuel Pellegrini’s side, who had played well throughout the match, but the Blues are now beginning to show their title credentials.
Here are the best and worst players from this thrilling tie.
The Argentine is back to the forward’s best this season and did brilliantly to get City back into the match with superb equaliser after Andre Schurrle’s opener.
That was Aguero’s fifth goal of the week and takes the 25-year-old’s league tally to seven, as the Manchester club continue to rely on the South American.
While both Frank Lampard and Jon Obi Mikel struggle to find form in defensive midfield, the Brazilian continues to impress in the middle of the park.
Ramires is also crucial to the west London club when in attack and provided two superb balls for Torres – although the 29-year-old failed to capitalise.
It may be a little premature to say the striker is back to the Spaniard’s best but this display certainly shows Torres is brimming with confidence.
After missing an early chance, instead of the forward’s head going down the No.9 carried on battling; setting up Schurrle’s goal and then netting the winner.
