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 from James Milner’s ball late on.
His celebrations were muted against the side he spent 13 years with.

Chelsea had lead through Andre Schurrle’s close-range finish shortly after City had Pablo Zabaleta sent off after clashing with Diego Costa.
