Johnny On The Spot: Ultimately, this disappointing contest has to go down as the one that got away for unbeaten Manchester City, regardless of the fact that it represents a point up on last season's haul...The game was played out in the most surreal of atmosphere's, dominated by out and out hostility towards new Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez which was countered by open vocality for the sacked Roberto Di Matteo and a strong City away support. Amongst all this mayhem respects were duly paid to the sadly departed Dave Sexton and City adopted what looked to be a solid professional focus...Chelsea looked to be playing in a confused state for the majority of the game and in truth, it wasn't until their first shot in anger on 53 minutes that they began to consider taking the game to a City side who for yet more mountainous passing stats (520 to Chelsea's 382 this time around) reverted to striving to stroll the ball in once again with midfield under control. Were Mancio's team to adopt a readiness to shoot on sight for this one, then Chelsea who looked decidedly leaderless were there for the taking, but City couldn't capitalise on the situation. However, win at Wigan on Wednesday and this will represent a valuable point towards the champions title defence. Stats Courtesy Sky Sports/ Sporting Life

We owned Chelsea today - and how that wasn't a foul on Balotelli right at the end, Only Chris Foy knows. Sincerely hope the FSW sorts out the inner ear problem that most of Chelsea's players seem to have developed.

P.S. Somebody tell Foy that when Torres kicks the3 ball away, it is a definite booking - no discretion, it's the ruels.

We should have won this game in the first half, Chelsea were there for the taking. Still a point away at Chelsea is not to be sniffed at and our unbeaten run continues.

1 shot on target from Chelsea? The Rafa effect.

Average performance all told. Still, a point away and remain unbeaten so it's not too bad. Actually, pretty boring game in truth. 2pts dropped imo

Has to be said, Foy's booking of Balotelli was stonewall shocking.

I am happy with a point at the Bridge, maybe next time we take our shooting boots.

It was JB, a ridiculous decision. Mario's name counting against him again.

we don't have cutting edge when chance after chance wasted. Possession alone without scoring is like buying a ferrari but unused.
