Man City vs Chelsea player ratings: Julian Alvarez proves once again he's more than just an Erling Haaland backup as much-changed champions cruise to victory
Manchester City enjoyed a Premier League coronation against Chelsea a day after being crowned champions for a third year in a row.
Pep Guardiola heavily rotated his squad for the occasion and Julian Alvarez again made the most of his opportunity to lead the attack, scoring the only goal after a lovely assist from Cole Palmer, who was making his first start of the season in the league.
Kalvin Phillips also impressed in his first league start, playing his part in the goal. The match at times felt like a pre-season game but even a makeshift City team with little to play for had too much for Frank Lampard's side.
When the full-time whistle went to complete a 12th successive win for City, thousands of fans got on the pitch, delaying the trophy lift.
