So this edition of the Oil Firm Derby goes to City...

I only saw the second half of this match so I didn't know Chelsea were down to 10 men. It wasn't bad, but it was not the most exciting 3-2 game I've ever seen. Should be expected though, form and momentum hasn't quite been built up yet.

"it was not the most exciting 3-2 game I've ever seen" there is never and exciting game when Chelsea are involved.

oh shut it, the last season alone was a hell of a ride :)

The game was even until that red card, Torres was excellent in the first half, great finish, movement, threatening the City defence everytime he touched the ball. We only woke up when Ryan scored that tap in, good late fight.

EVEN? Biased to the hilt mate. Chelsea were constantly in there own half unless on the break. City dominated most of the game and bossed them around and when they were down there subs showed there lack of depth.

We scored, we attacked, we defended. City had most of the ball, they weren't dominating us, we were tactically great..until Iva got sent off.

City struggled until Chelsea went down to 10 men. Then they started to play well even though Chelsea still was able to break from time to time.

And City just kept passing backwards and sidewards and wasting time in a charity shield game.

Yea, talk about bein biased mate..

Ivanovic was so stupid to double slide, completely ruined Chelsea as they were left with a make shift right back.

I rarely dislike teams in the premiership, but i cannot stand Mancini or that arrogant dingleberry Nasri.

I wish Di Matteo good luck, cos he'll have one impatient Russian blowin smoke up his A hole in no time..

Chelsea looked weak even with Torres, If your he's your answer to drogba's exit I feel for you lol. City had the advantage in the 1st, chelsea played a good pass to Torres in the box, and he came thru(He usually doesn't lol). After they went down to 10, I knew it was over.

Ivanovic getting sent off was key for this man city win.

Entertaining none the less. Love seeing torres score!

Not really City dominated the match and Chelsea only scored on teh break. They played just like they did in the CL the played ultra defensive and hit on the break. It was poor to watch and city were looking strong in time for the start of the season.

City started with only half there first team and Pantillamon should have done better for the first goal and the second... well.. That's speaks for itself. If Joe Hart was playing the game would have been a shut out sending off or not.


Oh just admit it, the sending off helped.

Chelsea were able to start a stronger starting 11 especially in defense. Lescott, Richards, and Hart didn't play. Clichy and Silva came in near the end. I would've been nice to see a full strength match without that red card. I'm sure we'll see a good one this year between these two clubs.

only watched the highlights, but Terry looked at fault for two goals, poor clearance and then tevez got around him way too easily
