City ended Chelsea perfect start, Man City-Chelsea 1-0

MANCHESTER - Both Man City and AC Milan winning 1-0 today in difficult matches (and Inter Milan losing 1-0 ehehe).
Carlos Tevez fired City back into the title race - and ended Chelsea's 100 per cent start.
The prolific frontman's low drive past Petr Cech just before the hour sealed the points in a close-fought encounter at Eastlands.
And having completed the double over them last season, Roberto Mancini's side are fast turning into the Blues' bogey team.
Despite crashing to Newcastle in the Carling Cup, a very different Chelsea starting eleven turned up in confident mood, with five league wins out of five, having plundered 21 goals.
However, Carlo Ancelotti was clearly wary of his first big test of the season and set his side out to stifle their hosts from the start.
Tevez was City's lone front man and fired wide trying to catch Cech unawares with an early effort.
It was the unlikely source of Branislav Ivanovic that came closest to scoring in the first half.
A well-worked corner, between Didier Drogba and Florent Malouda ended with the frenchman picking out Alex at the far post.
The Brazil centre-half nodded it back to the Serb, who found the upright with his first header and saw the recovering Joe Hart clutch his second effort.
Pablo Zabaleta was booked for cutting down Ivanovic with a crude sliding tackle and Michael Essien wasted a good opportunity by blazing high and wide from the edge of the box.
Chelsea made a flying start to the second-half, with Nicolas Anelka bringing a fine save out of Hart with a curling 20-yard shot.
Then City got their marking wrong at the corner but Essien sent his header sailing over.
Nigel de Jong responded by slipping another pass through to David Silva, who let fly with a fierce effort only for Cech to turn it round the post.
Just before the hour mark, Yaya Toure picked out Tevez who drove forward from the halfway line and with Ashley Cole backtracking, struck a low finish through the fullback's legs and in off Cech's far post.
It was the first time Chelsea had fallen behind this season but they failed to mount the required response.
John Obi Mikel was booked for going through Tevez, then Yaya Toure almost weaved his way through the entire Chelsea defence before taking a tumble.
Yuri Zhirkov replaced Mikel in the game's first substitution and Daniel Sturridge came on for the ineffective Didier Drogba.
Sturridge came close in a frantic finish but City held on to move within four points of Chelsea at the top and blow the title race wide open.
