Chelsea vs Manchester City Premier League cracker lived up to its billing as both sides kept fans on the edge of their seats through its entirety.

Both teams went into the match off a fine run of form, with the Blues ending Tottenham Hotspur's unbeaten run in the Premier League with a 4-1 win last Monday in the London derby.

On their part, City demolished Bournemouth in their 6-1 in their last EPL outing before demolishing Young Boys 3-0 in the Champions League in mid-week.

The two English giants were, therefore, keen to build on the momentum when they squared off on Sunday night at Stamford Bridge.

However, even with eight goals scored, nothing could separate the two teams as they shared the spoils in an eight-goal thriller.

How Chelsea vs Man City played out

The Evening Standard reports that Erling Haaland opened the scoring for City from the penalty spot in the 25th minute before Thiago Silva drew Chelsea level four minutes later.

Raheem Sterling went on to make it 2-1 for the hosts in the 37th minute, but the lead was shortlived as City equalised on the stroke of half-time via Akanji.

Haaland handed the visitors the lead two minutes after the break before Nicolas Jackson made it 3-3 in the 67th minute.

Rodri thought he had won it for City with four minutes left on the clock, only for Chelsea to win a penalty in added time.

Palmer, who swapped City for Chelsea in the summer, stepped up to convert the spot-kick to force the tie into a 4-4 draw.

Poch confronts ref

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino had some words for referee Anthony Taylor after Chelsea’s 4-4 draw against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, November 12.

In what was easily the game of the season, both teams produced an attacking masterclass, with neither side able to get the better of the other at full time.
