Riyad Mahrez hit a sensational free-kick for Manchester City to open the scoring against Chelsea.
The Algerian winger is deadly from outside the box, so conceding a free-kick just outside the box is a big mistake from Chelsea.
Mahrez stepped up and whipped the ball into the top corner, giving the goalkeeper absolutely no chance.
