  • Sterling scored once as the Blues claimed a deserved one point from the defending champions

Raheem Sterling once again showed Chelsea fans what kind of a player he can be for them with another scintillating display against Manchester City on November 12.

Sterling, alongside Cole Palmer, were Mauricio Pochettino's liveliest players as the Blues battled out to a four-all draw against the defending champions at home.

The duo then appeared for a post-match conference together to share insights on the thriller and how it was to face their former club.

Sterling joined Chelsea last summer, while Palmer followed suit this year just before the transfer window closed.

Sterling's awkward TV moment

The former was involved in an awkward moment with Sky Sports journalist, Patrick Davidson during the interview.

Sterling was uncomfortable with something in his eye as the reporter offered to help remove it. The Chelsea star rejected those attempts, swatting Davidson's hands away before saying:

"You're gonna put some more dirt in my eye!"

Chelsea vs Manchester City: match report

The 28-year-old was among the goals, scoring the Blues' second of the night after a Thiago Silva header had cancelled out Erling Haaland's opener.

Manuel Akanji stored parity for Pep Guardiola's side before the Norwegian ace fired the Citizens in front just after the half-time break.

Pochettino's charges had to dig deep twice to come from behind to get a memorable point. Nicolas Jackson's rebound finish and Cole Palmer's stoppage-time penalty were enough to ensure that the spoils were shared.

The draw took Man City back to the top of the Premier League table while Chelsea remain in 10th place.

Palmer tried to steal City's tactics

Sports Brief also reported on Palmer peeping inside City's huddle when his ex-teammates were discussing a free kick in a dangerous area in the additional minutes.

Dias sniffed him out before Erling Haaland pushed him away, with both players laughing and Jack Grealish uttered something inaudible at the audacity of the attacker.
