EXPRESS SPORTS SAYS Chelsea fought back from a losing position three times against champions Manchester City to salvage a 4-4 draw after a sensational end to a thrilling encounter at Stamford Bridge. Erling Haaland scored twice for the visitors along with Manuel Akanji, but goals from Thiago Silva, Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Jackson underlined Mauricio Pochettino’s side’s fighting spirit. Rodri’s deflected effort looked to have snatched all three points, before Cole Palmer came back to stun his former club with a stoppage-time penalty.

Chelsea then took advantage of an error from Josko Gvardiol with Sterling scoring against his former club, before Manuel Akanji levelled the game at 2-2 in first-half stoppage time to bring an end to a pulsating opening 45 minutes.
