| Lampard earns City draw with Chelsea, Man Utd lose 5-3
Reuters: Chelsea icon Frank Lampard scored for Manchester City to end his old club’s perfect start to the Premier League season while Leicester City came from 3-1 down to beat Manchester United 5-3, on a remarkable day in the Premier League on Sunday.
Lampard, Chelsea’s record scorer with 211 goals in his 13 years at Stamford Bridge came on as a late substitute and scored to earn the 10-man champions a 1-1 draw against the league leaders but did not celebrate the goal and was later applauded off the pitch by both sets of fans.
Earlier United led 2-0 then 3-1 with 33 minutes to play, but ended up beaten 5-3 in a game that will live on as one of promoted Leicester’s most unlikely victories.
But the shocks did not stop there with West Bromwich Albion winning 1-0 at Tottenham Hotspur for their first league win of the season while Crystal Palace, also without a league win, came from behind to beat Everton 3-2 at Goodison Park as both losers suffered Europa League hangovers.
After the dust settled, Chelsea remained on top with 13 points from their five matches, followed by Southampton and Aston Villa on 10 points.
Manchester City were 1-0 down to Andre Schurrle’s 71st minute far post tap-in following a swift break and down to 10 men after the 66th-minute dismissal of Pablo Zabaleta.
Lampard then joined the fray and converted a James Milner cross in typical style.
United also ended with 10 men but no points despite racing 2-0 ahead with a header from Robin van Persie and a brilliant chip from Angel di Maria.
Leonardo Ulloa pulled one back but United looked safe when Ander Herrera back-heeled their third after 57 minutes.
