Welcome to the 90mins live broadcast of all the action in the Premier League on Saturday.

The plot starts with a real bang, with Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea traveling to the Etihad Stadium to meet the rampant leaders Manchester City in what is already considered a potential title decision.

Follow all the important events from the games below.

33 min – CLEAR!

City’s free kick turns into a corner, but Chelsea handles it well again. This time it is Rudiger who rises the highest to cope.

31 min – YELLOW CARD!

Next in the book is Kovacic, whose late challenge on advancing Silva is rightly punished with a yellow card.

29 min – TUCHEL UNLUCKY

Tuchel shouts at his defense to get further ahead as they clear the ball away. At the moment, they only offer pressure.

28 min – WASTE!

Pulisic finds some space down to the right and drives towards the village line, but he takes too many touches and lets City retreat. He plays one-two with Azpilicueta but is offside on the return.

25 minutes – BLOCK!

Rodris’ post is not handled by Azpilcueta and the ball ends up on the left of Cancelo, who shoots a low cross in the feet of Rudiger to clear.

22 min – CHELSEA HOT

Now it’s Chelsea’s turn to move forward. Ziyech gets some space down the left and whizzes in a low cross against Lukaku, but City’s defenders handle it well.

The first 20 minutes of Manchester City vs Chelsea have only seen two shots.

Alonso has struggled with Sterling, but Sarr makes no mistake. He knocks the City winger in the box with a perfect challenge and gives away a corner that City wastes.

14 min – SAVE!

City get a corner to the left and it is the Stones who rise to the top to meet it, but he can only send his effort straight towards Kepa, who gratefully grabs the ball.

14 min – CLEANED!

Cancelo finds De Bruyne with an excellent pass along City’s left side, but the Belgian’s cut-back finds only the retiring Alonso, who knocks the ball away.

12 min – CHANCE!

Chelsea come in behind City’s defense through Lukaku, but he makes a pass too much against offside Hakim Ziyech and stops the move.

9 min – A DECISION!

De Bruyne’s free kick enters the penalty area but Sarr handles it well.

8 min – YELLOW CARD!

Alonso gets the game’s first warning after pulling Sterling down on the wing.

5 min – THE CITY’S PRESSURE!

Chelsea manage the corner with ease, but City will come right back against them.

4 minutes – NERVIG KEPA!

A nervous moment for Kepa. Laporte’s long ball over the top falls just behind Chelsea’s defense, and the attacking Kepa pings his clearance directly outside Azpilicueta and behind for a corner.

1 min – ON THE WAY!

Go and run at the Etihad – victory for City will surely put an end to Chelsea’s faint hopes of winning the title.
