See who else impressed – and who didn't – for the Blues, with our full player ratings below…

Chelsea player ratings: Luiz dominates and Kante looks like Lampard – but Alonso will have nightmares about Sterling2 David Luiz was a rock for Chelsea and added the crucial second goal
Kepa Arrizabalaga

Stood up well to Leroy Sane in the first half but his distribution was poor, putting the Blues under all kinds of pressure in their own third.

When the ole's came out in injury-time Kepa nearly cost himself a goal – after giving the ball away he made up for it with a smart save from Gabriel Jesus.

Cesar Azpilicueta

A match-saving block on Sane in the first-half when it looked like all that City pressure and possession would finally lead to a goal.

His crossing was poor but it was a brilliant defensive performance by the skipper.

David Luiz

The polar opposite to his disastrous performance at Spurs two weeks ago, Luiz played with controlled aggression and marshalled a solid Blues defence – before scoring that vital second goal.

If he he played like this every week everything would rate Luiz as highly as he rates himself.

Antonio Rudiger

Chelsea's best defender this season had another standout match.

Seemed to be his head on the end of every City cross and has won the love of the Chelsea fans with his battling performances.

Marcos Alonso

Chelsea's worst player, Alonso was terrified of facing Raheem Sterling one-on-one and will be glad he doesn't have to see the winger until February.

Kept giving the ball away in dangerous areas.
