Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini was full of praise for his players after the 3-0 win over Chelsea.
The Citizens were as impressive as they were last week away at West Bromwich Albion as they eased past the reigning champions.
It is the second 3-0 win in a row after last week's victory at the Hawthorns.
"It is very satisfying because it's not easy to beat the champions," Pellegrini said after the game.
"Chelsea are the best team - they won the title last season - and in the first 45 minutes, we really deserved at least three goals.
"We played very well without conceding chances for Chelsea to score and it was only a great performance from Asmir Begovic that meant we couldn't score more goals.
"In the second half, we were restricted by the yellow cards we received so our intensity was not the same but even in our worst moment, Chelsea didn't have chances and finally we scored the goals we deserved.
"We deserved at least three or four goals. The second half was more equal - Chelsea played better but I only remember one chance which Joe [Hart] saved.
"We played better and 3-0 is the minimum we deserved."
