Man City move clear at the top after pulsating 4-4 draw at Chelsea

Manchester City took the lead in the Premier League after a thrilling 4-4 draw against Chelsea. Erling Haaland scored twice for City, but former City player Cole Palmer equalized from the penalty spot in added time.

City opened the scoring with a penalty converted by Haaland after Marc Cucurella fouled him. Thiago Silva then equalized for Chelsea with a header from a corner, marking the first time Chelsea had scored against City since the 2021 Champions League final.

Despite Chelsea’s recent struggles against City, Raheem Sterling tapped in a goal to give Chelsea the lead. However, Manuel Akanji quickly equalized for City before Haaland scored his second goal of the game to put City ahead.

In a back-and-forth contest, Nicolas Jackson equalized for Chelsea in the 67th minute. Rodri’s deflected strike in the 86th minute gave City the lead again, but a late penalty allowed Palmer to score against his former club and secure a draw for Chelsea.

Palmer expressed his respect for City after the match, while Rodri admitted that City’s performance was not their best. The result moved City to the top of the league with 28 points, while Chelsea climbed to 10th place.

Overall, it was an exciting match that showcased the attacking prowess of both teams.
