LONDON (AP) Shorn of the dynamism of injured midfielder Cesc Fabregas and the attacking potency provided by Diego Costa, Chelsea seemed content with drawing Manchester City 1-1 on Saturday.

Although the perfect home record in the English Premier League ended, the leaders kept City five points adrift and ensured the champions went a third consecutive league game without a win.

After the opener from Chelsea striker Loic Remy was canceled out before halftime by David Silva, the hosts produced an unadventurous, ultra-defensive second-half performance.
