London:

Fernando Torres capped off an impressive attacking display for Chelsea by seizing on Manchester City's defensive blunder in the 90th minute to clinch a 2-1 victory in the Premier League on Sunday.

After Chelsea substitute Willian launched the ball forward, City goalkeeper Joe Hart found himself exposed on the edge of the penalty area and defender Matija Nastasic managed to head the ball over his own goalkeeper.

In a run that encapsulated his energetic performance at Stamford Bridge, Torres raced onto the loose ball and sent it into the unguarded net.

The second half had begun badly for Chelsea when Sergio Aguero canceled out Andre Schurrle's opener, which had been set up by Torres.

But Torres' late winner ensured Chelsea ended the weekend still two points behind leader Arsenal.

City dropped to seventh.
