This afternoon Chelsea beat Manchester City 2-0 with goals from David Luiz and a superb solo effort from Ramires. It was an important three points for Chelsea as we move up to third above City with a game in hand. City looked to be solid enough at the back and made life difficult for Chelsea but a determined Chelsea struck ten minutes before the end and put a massive dent in City's chances of Champions League football.

For me, and I know I am biased, there was only one team that looked like winning today. One side that looked as if they would go all out to get that all important break through and it was Chelsea. City had the opening chance to take the lead as Yaya Toure forced Cech into a save low down to his right early on, but without Tevez looked toothless. Toure's shot was the closest they came to scoring.

Chelsea played well. Didier Drogba and Nico Anelka started on the bench as Salomon Kalou played up front next to Fernando Torres. Both worked hard with and without the ball and fair play to them. Torres had nothing much to shout about in this one as every time Chelsea got in and around the City box, their defence and midfield closed ranks and made any kind of through balls difficult.

Branislav Ivanovic had a good chance for Chelsea with a close range header from 6 years that deflected off the defenders back and away for a corner. Florent Malouda had the best chance after a flowing Chelsea move ended up with the ball played square to him 12 yards out but his effort was straight at Joe Hart.

To be honest the longer the game went on, we looked for something or someone to create something as City were looking comfortable as Hart didn't have a lot to do.

Chelsea's defence led by John Terry and inspired by the impressive David Luiz looked comfortable. Our midfield looked comfortable as Chelsea began to dominate the game. City were more than happy to rely on their counter attacking football as they looked to David Silva to cause us problems. Once or twice he broke free but other than that, he couldn't influence the game.

With around 25 minutes to go Carlo made a change. Torres and Kalou came off and Drogba and Anelka came on with fresh legs to try something different but once again City looked more than comfortable. That was until our two Samba boys took this one by the scruff of the neck and settled it.

First of all David Luiz, pushed up for a corner with some fancy footwork tempted Micah Richards into a silly tackle out wide. Didier Drogba floated in the best free kick of the game and Luiz holding off his marker, guided his header into the corner as Joe Hart made contact with the ball but couldn't stop it. 1-0 Chelsea and our new cult hero scores again.

Florent Malouda came off for Yuri Zhirkov as Chelsea looked to keep their shape with additional fresh legs and we began clock watching. City made their changes but none of them could affect the game in a positive way as our defence and midfield dealt with any threat they had easily.

We moved into four minutes of added time and surely we wouldn't blow it. We didn't have to worry as Ramires, a close second for man of the match after Luiz, took control of the ball, danced around three defenders and calmly slotted the ball past Hart into the far corner in front of the Matthew Harding to seal the win and the three points for Chelsea.

It was a great win, a determined win after looking like struggling to open City up. This is a very different Chelsea to that of three/four months ago. There is a determination to never give in about us with added quality and in the two samba boys of Luiz and Ramires, an exciting future ahead of us.

You will more than likely hear of another blank for Fernando Torres, but as he says, as long as the team is winning, that's the most important thing. Torres time will come, but today he put in a hard working shift which was good enough.

For now, we have moved up to third with a game in hand on City and you never know, our final fifteen minutes of this game could prove to be all important come the end of the season.

In the space of 90 minutes this afternoon, the title race has changed from a two horse race to three with Chelsea right back in it!.
