Man City 1-1 Chelsea Highlights
Frank Lampard scored a dramatic equaliser against former side Chelsea to earn 10-man Manchester City a draw at Etihad Stadium.
The midfielder, who left the Blues in the summer, came off the bench to sweep home late on.
His celebrations were muted against the side he spent 13 years with.
Chelsea had taken the lead through Andre Schurrle’s close-range finish shortly after City had Pablo Zabaleta sent off.

Jose Mourinho Post Match Interview
Chelsea condemned Manchester City to a first home Premier League defeat of the season last February, when Branislav Ivanovic scored the only goal. That result completed the league double over City.
However, City beat Chelsea 2-0 in the FA Cup 12 days later – their fifth victory in the last six meetings at the Etihad Stadium.
Chelsea have won 11 Premier League matches away at Manchester City, more than any other team.
The defending champions are seeking their first league win in three matches; failure to beat Chelsea would represent their worst run for 19 months, when they only earned two points out of a possible nine.
City only dropped five points at home last season, winning 17 of their 19 fixtures and registering a league-high 52 points. They have already lost to Stoke this campaign.
It is more than four years since City went two matches without a home win in the Premier League; they were held to successive goalless draws in November 2010 by Manchester United and Birmingham City.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side have not conceded a league goal before the 63rd minute so far this season. Only Aston Villa had a comparable record going into this weekend’s fixtures.
Summer signing Frank Lampard scored a club record 211 goals in 648 appearances for Chelsea.
Joe Hart is expected to make his 200th Premier League appearance for Manchester City on Sunday.
Chelsea are vying to start a Premier League season with five straight wins for the fourth time. They did so most recently in 2010 before losing away to Manchester City in the sixth game.
They have won five consecutive away games in the league dating back to April.
The Blues took 16 points out of a possible 18 against the other teams in the top four last season, including two wins over Manchester City.
Diego Costa has scored a record seven goals in his first four Premier League games. Wayne Rooney has scored the most goals by any player after the first five games of a Premier League season, registering nine in 2011-12.
Cesc Fabregas is the first player in Premier League history to provide a goal assist in six consecutive games. Only Eden Hazard got more for Chelsea last season with seven.
