It was another stonking day of Premier League action, with shenanagins at both ends of the table.
It was more Pardiola than Guardiola as Crystal Palace managed to arrest their awful run and Mr Conte came out on top in the mouth-watering early fixture.
At the other end, David Moyes’s Sunderland moved off the bottom of the table with a win over Leicester, with Swansea taking last place after their thrashing by Spurs.
Here’s how the action all turned out and some very important stuff you may have missed.
Sunderland 2 – 1 Leicester
Tottenham 5 – 0 Swansea
Stoke 2 – 0 Burnley
Crystal Palace 3 – 0 Southampton
West Brom 3 – 1 Watford
Thank you De Bruyne for missing the opening net. It was Jose that sold you not Chelsea..— TeamChelsea (@IconicLampard) December 3, 2016
It would have put City 2-0 up and in control of the match. But Conte’s clinical counter-attackers buried three chances through Costa, Willian and Hazard, extending their winning run in the league to eight.
Got to hurt more than stepping on a rake.
It led to an ugly injury-time mass brawl which saw Fernandinho and Aguero receive red cards.
Going to clear the ball with his left foot, it hit off his right then rolled through his legs, sitting invitingly for Mr Benteke to stroke it into the empty net.
He’s got a bad touch for a big man.
Fraser Forster turns into an Oliver Kahn-Lev Yashin hybrid every time he plays us then nutmegs himself on his own goalline in the next game.— Paddy (@VieiraPaddy) December 3, 2016
8 - Christian Eriksen has had a hand in eight goals in six appearances vs Swansea in the Premier League (four goals, four assists). Clipped.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) December 3, 2016
There was also a delicious Michelin-star meal of a half-volley goal by Son Heung-Min.

Still, it wasn’t all bad as Okazaki became the all-time leading Japanese scorer in the league.
