Chelsea upsets Man City 1-0

MANCHESTER, England (AP) - Branislav Ivanovic scored in the 31st minute, and Chelsea neutralized the England's most potent attack with a 1-0 win at Manchester City on Monday night in a key Premier League showdown.

Ivanovic scored on a 25-yard, left-footed shot when the ball rebounded to him after City captain Vincent Kompany slid to block Ramires' shot, and the Blues ended Manchester City's streak of 61 home league matches since November 2010 in which it had scored. Samuel Eto'o, Nemanja Matic and Gary Cahill all struck the goal frame for Chelsea.

Arsenal (17-3-4) regained the Premier League lead on Sunday and is two points in front of City (17-5-2), which is ahead of Chelsea (16-3-5) on goal difference.

City has 115 goals in all competitions and had been 15-0 at Etihad Stadium this season in domestic matches, including 11-0 in the league.

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is renowned as a master defensive strategist, but the Blues counterattacked with pace and purpose, and hounded City into sloppy mistakes.

City badly missed a pair of injured players, forward Sergio Aguero and holding midfielder Fernandinho, who was ruled out just before kickoff with a muscle problem. Martin Demichelis - a center back - filled in in central midfield and couldn't stop Chelsea's midfielders.
