On Sunday, Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City team inflicted Chelsea’s heaviest-ever Premier League defeat by scoring six without reply at the Etihad.

The access that City manipulated ultimately led to the first four goals being scored inside the first 25 minutes, which effectively ended the match before half-time.



Interestingly, despite scoring an incredible six goals, there was one consistent tactical theme throughout the entirety of the match that allowed the home side to assert their dominance.



This utilisation of the half-spaces allowed Guardiola’s champions to ultimately win the match by scoring four goals in the first 25 minutes.

The opposing team wanted to press and continued to do so for the large majority of the match, but as a result, allowed City to consistently enter the final third of the pitch.

The narrative surrounding the build-up to the contest suggested a competitive match between two attractive footballing sides, but once play got underway, one team significantly exposed the other.

Overall, Guardiola’s exploitation of the half-spaces provided Sarri’s Chelsea with the ultimate tactical problem.
