Table-toppers Chelsea made it eight league wins in a row on Saturday, with the Blues deservedly beating fellow title-rivals Manchester City 3-1 at the Etihad.
To make matters worse for Pep Guardiola and co, both Sergio Aguero and Fernandino saw red in a mighty fracas at the end of the game.
Chelsea went behind at the end of the first-half, courtesy of a Gary Cahill own-goal.
However, after the break, the visitors were much the better side, catching the Citizens out on the break time and time again.
Not long after Kevin De Bruyne saw an effort crash off the crossbar, Chelsea found themselves level after Diego Costa outmuscled Nicolas Otamendi to fire home.
On 70 minutes, sub Willian put Antonio Conte’s men into the lead, before Eden Hazard sealed the deal with another goal from a break.
Things would go from bad to worse for the home side just before the end, with Aguero initially sent off for a wild lunge on David Luiz, which will see the Argentine striker serve a long ban.

That incident sparked a classic fracas, with players and coaching staff all involved. Ultimately, Fernandinho would also receive his marching orders for attacking Cesc Fabregas, who stayed impressively cool.
