Chelsea 4-4 Man City final score, result and highlights

STAMFORD BRIDGE, LONDON — Cole Palmer held his nerve to dispatch a stoppage-time penalty, joining Raheem Sterling in scoring against his former employers Manchester City in an astonishing 4-4 draw.

Chelsea had lost the past six editions of this fixture without scoring a goal but came from behind three times to earn a point against Pep Guardiola’s side, who edge back in front of Arsenal and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table.

Erling Haaland opened the scoring from the penalty spot and scrambled home his 17th of the season early in the second half, but goals from Thiago Silva and Moises Caicedo levelled the score at 1-1 and 3-3 respectively.

Sterling applied the finish to a low 37th-minute cross from the excellent Reece James, giving Chelsea the lead for the only time in an undulating affair, with Manuel Akanji left unmarked to head home Bernardo Silva’s cross and send City in 2-2 at the break.

Thiago Silva looked like suffering a bitterly unfair enduring to his afternoon when he diverted Rodri’s speculative left-footed effort beyond Robert Sanchez four minutes from time.

But there was a further twist as Ruben Dias blundered into substitute Armando Broja to concede the late spot kick. The 21-year-old Palmer, who left City to join Chelsea in a £42.5 million deal in August, held his nerve as Ederson guessed correctly to make it four out of four from 12 yards for his new club.
