Video: John Stones misses last gasp sitter as Blues hold on for vital win over Man City


Chelsea’s grip on the Premier League crown only intensified last night, following the side’s 2-1 Stamford Bridge win over Guardiola’s Manchester City.

Eden Hazard was undeniably the star of the show on the night, with the Belgians double bookending Sergio Aguero’s first half equaliser after Courtois fumbled carelessly.

With Spurs keeping pace with Antonio Conte’s side following a dramatic snatch and grab win against Swansea, things could have been far worse for the Blue’s after John Stones missed a glorious last gasp chance to grab a point for the visitors.

With City pushing for the equaliser, the England international gets on the end of an incoming corner, only to lift the ball over the net from all of 5 yards.

The result leaves Chelsea 7 points clear of second placed Tottenham with just 8 Premier League matches remaining.

Surely Mauricio Pochettino’s side will be asking for a miracle to overturn their London rivals at this stage.
