Man City stun Division 1 leaders with 1-0 victory, while Chelsea fight back to beat West Ham

Ian Poveda struck the only goal as Manchester City stunned Division One leaders Derby County, handing them their first defeat after a six-match winning run.

Poveda, pictured above, struck on 63 minutes at Derby's training ground, converting Rabbi Matondo’s cross.

Despite more than eight minutes of stoppage time, Derby were unable to convert their late pressure into an equaliser.

Derby remain top on 23 points but are now only a point ahead of Everton, and three ahead of City, who climb to fourth.

Everton also fought back from being 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Tottenham Hotspur.
