Chelsea ended Manchester City's unbeaten start to the Barclays Premier League season and hauled themselves right back into the title race after coming from behind to win 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard scored the winner from the penalty spot with eight minutes left after coming off the bench, with the match hinging on Gael Clichy's second-half dismissal.

Mario Balotelli gave City a dream start by putting them ahead in the second minute and they had a penalty shout of their own turned down before Raul Meireles equalised.
