Chelsea and Manchester City played out a thrilling 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge as Cole Palmer’s stoppage-time penalty against his former team denied the champions victory in a breathless contest.

Erling Haaland opened the scoring from the penalty spot after Marc Cucurella was ruled to have fouled him in the box, in a controverial decision that could have easily gone the other way.

Chelsea had made a bright start and hit back with quickfire goals, first from Thiago Silva and then Raheem Sterling as he finished off a fine move against his former club.

But the champions responded as Manuel Akanji was left unmarked to equalise before half-time, before Haaland bundled in Phil Foden’s cross 90 seconds after the restart.

City were pegged back again, however, as Nicolas Jackson slammed home a rebound and it was Chelsea who wasted the next big chance when Malo Gusto curled over.

City retook the lead when Rodri’s shot deflected off Silva’s outstretched leg and into the net, but there would be one final twist as Ruben Dias gave away a penalty in stoppage time for a foul on Armando Broja.

Up stepped former City player Palmer, who kept his nerve to equalise again and level the scores at a scarcely believable 4-4. Follow all the Premier League reaction below after a Premier League classic

He shoots, sending his effort across goal but Sanchez leaps low to his left and palms the ball away!

40 mins: There’s a game on at Stamford Bridge now. Manchester City are growing a bit frustrated as they’re not having things go their way since the penalty.

Chelsea need to keep the same mindset. They started this match being aggressive and are seeing a lot of joy on the counter-attack.

Chelsea 1-1 Man City

35 mins: Close! City have upped the tempo. Rodri drives the ball through midfield before slipping the ball over to Phil Foden on the right side of the pitch.

He cuts inside of Marc Cucurella before curling a shot mrer inches wide of the far post. That would have been a lovely goal.

GOAL! Chelsea 1-1 Man City (Thiago Silva, 29’)⚽️

29 mins: Equaliser! From the corner, Conor Gallagher whips the ball over to the near post where Thiago Silva makes a run into space.

He meets the ball and nods it into the deck. Ederson doesn’t have the best view of the cross and is late to react meaning he cant get across as it sneaks in at the near post.

Chelsea 0-1 Man City

28 mins: Chance! Chelsea win a free kick just outside the penalty area and Reece James decides he’s going to take it. He whips the ball up and over the wall before getting it to dip under the bar.

Ederson leaps to his right and pushes the ball over the top for a corner! Great save.

Chelsea 0-1 Man City

27 mins: To make matters worse for Chelsea, Marc Cucurella was booked for giving away the penalty so he’ll need to be careful taking on the likes of Phil Foden for the rest of the game.

In response, Chelsea come down the left side and feed the ball up to Sterling. He sends it inside to Gallagher who lays the ball off to Moises Caicedo.

Caicedo shoots from range but clatters his effort right into Rodri who boots the ball clear.

GOAL! Chelsea 0-1 Man City (Haaland, 25’)⚽️

25 mins: Erling Haaland wins the penalty for Manchester City and converts it too! He slides the ball to the goalkeeper’s right as Robert Sanchez dives the opposite way.

City take to lead thanks to a controversial decision from the officials. That’s going to be another talking point at the end of this game.
