Chelsea: Offical Blues website meets Pravda in biased Man City match report

Chelsea pravda


Tonked 3-0 at Manchester City, Chelsea were clearly the inferior side. Well, so you’d think. But it turns out that football according to the offical Chelsea FC website is a little less monocular; a little less concerned with the obvious, seeking, as it does, to enlighten and broaden knowledge of those fans for whom the scoreline is all.


Chelsea pravda 1


Highlights for Roman Abramovich’s in-house Pravda are as follows:


A Ramires goal incorrectly ruled out for offside with Man City a goal ahead changed the complexion of this early-season Premier League fixture.

Sergio Aguero had put the hosts ahead having already been thwarted by the excellent Asmir Begovic on three occasions, while Diego Costa had a strong shout for a first-half penalty.


Chelsea pravda 2


Within 25 seconds of his first Chelsea start Begovic was called upon to make a telling contribution… It set the tone for an assured performance by the Bosnian. 

Kompany cynically scythed Diego Costa down to earn the game’s first booking...


Chelsea pravda 4


Before the break, Diego Costa was on the receiving end of a brutish aerial challenged from Fernandinho…

Mangala resorted to WWE-style tactics to stop the ever-dangerous Diego Costa getting free down the right…

 …a game of very fine margins.

For thsoe of you still watching in black and white, the game finished Manchester City 3, Chelsea 0.
