Carlos Tevez scored the only goal at Eastlands on Saturday as Chelsea's barnstorming start to the Premier League season was halted by a 1-0 defeat against Manchester City.

The Argentine maintained his remarkable scoring record against Chelsea, firing the winner after 59 minutes of a match that slowly warmed up after a cagey first half.

Tevez’s strike, his fourth in three games against Carlo Ancelotti’s side, inflicted a first defeat on champions Chelsea who had begun the season with five consecutive league victories and an avalanche of goals.
