What happened in the previous meeting between the two teams

The two teams played out a pulsating 4-all draw at Stamford Bridge earlier this season. It was the perfect advertisement for the Premier League in what was an enthralling encounter.

It was a game that saw momentum swing between the two teams and both sides had their opportunities to take all three points.

The European champions would take the lead against the run of play through Erling Haaland from the penalty spot in the 25th minute. Chelsea would respond four minutes later through a Thiago Silva header to equalise. They’d take the lead in the 37th minute through former City winger Raheem Sterling. Pep Guardiola’s side would level the scores on the stroke of half-time through Manuel Akanji. The game was set for an exciting second half.

Erling Haaland would give City a 3-2 lead just after halftime with his second of the night. He bundled home a Julian Alvarez cross in the 47th minute to restore City’s lead.

The game would settle down momentarily until Chelsea equalised in the 67th minute through Nicolas Jackson. It set the stage for a grandstand finish which would arrive in the final minutes of a classic contest.

First, it seemed that City’s midfield general Rodri had won the game in the 86th minute for the champions. His late strike rifles into the back of the net to give City a 4-3 lead.

But in fitting with the game Chelsea would get a deserved leveller in the 5th minute of extra time. Former City Academy star Cole Palmer would score from the penalty spot after a Ruben Dias could to end a classic encounter between the two sides.
