Frank Lampard

5:54: And that's it! The referee has blown for full time at the Etihad Stadium where Frank Lampard has rescued a point for Manchester City. The Chelsea legend came off the bench and scored the equaliser after Andre Schurrle had given Jose Mourinho's side the lead. In the grand scheme of things, a point seems fair. Chelsea did not do enough to justify taking all three points despite playing for most of the second half with a man advantage after Pablo Zabaleta was sent off.

At Goodison Park, Crystal Palace have repeated their feat from last season, securing a hugely impressive 3-2 win over Everton. Roberto Martinez's side have now conceded 13 goals in their five league games, the worst tally in the league.

5:51: Hazard wins a free kick about 25 yards out from goal. Didier Drogba assumes responsibility for this one but proceeds to wildly lift it over the bar.

5:47: Six minutes of injury time added at Goodison Park. Just the four added on at the Etihad Stadium.

5:45: Well, it had to happen, didn't it? James Milner breaks into space down the left after Andre Schurrle lost interest in defending and cuts a cross back into the box. Lampard, who has wandered into the box unmarked, has the task of slotting the ball past Hart, prompting predictably muted celebrations from the Chelsea legend.

Goal! Manchester City 1-1 Chelsea (Frank Lampard, 85)

5:42: Scott Dann fouls James McCarthy and the referee points to the spot. Baines steps up to take and steers it past Julian Speroni to pull one back. Just over five minutes of normal time remaining, can they find another one?

Goal! Everton 2-3 Crystal Palace (Leighton Baines, 83)

5:40: Costa smashes the post! Hazard drives through the middle before sliding a reverse pass into Costa's path. The Spaniard's first touch is a good one, allowing him to swivel and take the shot on, but he is denied by the woodwork. City in danger of being over run.

5:38: Frank Lampard has come on in the sky Blue of City, replacing Kolarov. He's going to score, isn't he?

5:36: Schurrle bends in a terrific free kick that Costa meets with a thumping header, but he sends it straight into Hart's gloves.

5:33: Schurrle caps a brilliant flowing move from Chelsea! Costa brings the ball upfield before steeromg it wide for Hazard. The Belgian bends a beautiful cross across the face of goal towards the backpost where the German international is placed to tap past Joe Hart.

Goal! Manchester City 0-1 Chelsea (Andre Schurrle, 71)

5:29: Everton have shot themselves in the foot again. Leon Osman loses possession allowing Jason Puncheon to race into space before looking for Bolasie on the edge of the box. Without taking a touch the winger brilliantly steers a first time effort home to give his side a two goal cushion.

Goal! Everton 1-3 Crystal Palace (Yannick Bolasie, 69)

5:27: Zabaleta is shown a second yellow card for his mistimed challenge on Costa.

RED CARD - Pablo Zabaleta (Manchester City)

5:24: Diego Costa is losing his rag a bit after a couple of challenges from Zabaleta. The Argentine has already been booked and could be in trouble here.

5:22: Couple of changes for Chelsea, Andre Schurrle has come on for Ramires with John Obi Mikel replacing Willian. Jose Mourinho might contemplate replacing Diego Costa at some point too, the striker looks a bit off the pace this afternoon.

5:17: Brilliant defending from Ramires! Zabaleta is found in space down the right and pings a ball into the six yard area. Aguero pokes an effort on goal that Courtois manages to get down to and block but can only parry it out to Dzeko. Just as the Bosnian is about to tap home the rebound however the Brazilian slides across to clear.

5:16: City's best chance of the game. Milner's cross from the right breaks to Fernandinho just inside the box but he lashes the ball just wide of the post.

5:15: Palace have the lead at Goodison Park! And it is a gift from Tim Howard. The United States international comes out to claim a corner but totally misses the ball, allowing Campbell to nod the ball over the line despite Jagielka's efforts to clear.

5:12: Yaya Toure wanted a penalty a few moments ago after surging past Ivanovic down the inside left channel but the referee is not interested.

Goal! Everton 1-2 Crystal Palace (Fraizer Campbell, 51)

5:10: City have started the half brightly again. This time it's Dzeko who bursts into space down the inside right channel before looking inside to Fernandinho. The Brazilian has Aguero free to his left but his threaded pass is a particularly poor one.

5:07: Aguero tries to test Courtois with a curling effort but he gets it all wrong, and scuffs his effort well wide of goal.

5:04: And we are back underway at the Etihad and at Goodison Park. Lets hope things liven up a tad.

4:55: No goals after the first 45 minutes at the Etihad Stadium. City began the contest in intense fashion but Chelsea have defended well, keeping the home side at bay.


Manchester City 0-0 Chelsea

Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace

4:45: Chelsea close to scoring! From the resulting corner Ivanovic heads the ball down to Costa who tries to divert the ball into the back of the net, but Fernandinho gets a toe to it and steers it wide.

4:44: Ramires threatens to get on the end of a loose ball but Mangala shows terrific strength and pace to get across and clear for a corner. The Frenchman has enjoyed a very stellar first half in English football so far.

4:40: Now Willian is shown a yellow card after taking down David Silva and ending a City counter attack. The quality in this contest has evaporated somewhat with half time looming.

4:36: Segio Aguero dances past Ramires and promptly receives a kick to the calf for his trouble. The Brazilian joins Zabaleta in the referee's book.

4:33: Hazard drives into space down the left and wins a free kick after luring Zabaleta into a challenge. The Argentine is somewhat harshly booked.

4:30: Palace are level! A mix up between Tim Howard, John Stones and Sylvan Distan allows James McArthur to skip through only to be tripped inside the box. Jedinak steps up and hammers the resulting penalty into the back of the net.

Goal! Everton 1-1 Crystal Palace (Mark Jedinak, 30)

PENALTY - Crystal Palace

4:30: City stretch the Chelsea defence, shifting the ball out to the left at pace. Kolarov drives a ball across goal that falls to Fernandinho on the edge of the box but he horribly slices his effort. The ball is retrieved by Zabeleta but his cross back into the box is collected by Courtois.

4:27: The pace in this game has noticably dropped off in the past 10 minutes or so. Chelsea won't mind that at all.

4:22: Chelsea are now beginning to settle in this game after an intense opening 15 minutes from City. Diego Costa has been dilligently fulfilling his defensive duties so far with a tasty battle between him and Vincent Kompany developing.

4:11: No chances of note to mention from the Etihad but City have started the far better of the two sides, moving the ball around crisply with Chelsea struggling to get close to them in midfield. There was a moment of concern for Sergio Aguero who was left in a heap following a challenge with John Terry but after a few minutes he is back on his feet.

4:09: Everton have started brilliantly at Goodison Park and have been justly rewarded with an early goal. Leon Osman is at the centre of a free-flowing move that frees Christian Atsu but the winger's effort is blocked. Moments later Osman opens up at Palace, again, sliding through Lukaku to calmly slide an effort home from 15 yards out.

Goal! Everton 1-0 Manchester City (Romelu Lukaku, 8)

4:00: And we are underway at the Etihad Stadium and at Goodison Park, where Everton are hosting Neil Warnock's Crystal Palace.


Man City: Hart, Zabaleta, Kompany, Mangala, Kolarov, Milner, Fernandinho, Toure, Silva, Aguero, Dzeko.

Chelsea: Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry (c), Azpilicueta; Ramires, Matic; Willian, Fabregas, Hazard; Costa.

3:45: Tottenham sit ninth in the league after their defeat to West Brom this afternoon. Mauricio Pochettino was left frustrated after another flat performance from his side.

"I'm disappointed and angry. I think we had a very bad day.

"We played very, very slow. We need to be more alive and play quick. We didn't create too much. We made a big mistake on the set-piece." [via BBC Sport]

TEAM NEWS: Ramires and Willian come into Jose Mourinho's starting XI for Oscar and Andre Schurrle. Manuel Pellegrini has made five changes to the side that lost to Bayern Munich mid-week with Eliaquim Mangala making his Premier League debut. Diego Costa returns.

3:25: Manchester United will be rightly aggrieved with Mark Clattenburg's decision to award Leicester's second penalty, but it will nowhere near justify the capitulation they suffered in the second half at the King Power Stadium. From 3-1 up, Louis van Gaal's side have suffered a humilation defeat that has erased the memories of last week's victory over Queens Park Rangers. An error-strewn defensive performance was worsened by their inability to create once Leicester fought their way back into the contest; United created nothing in the final half hour.

Tottenham 0-1 West Brom

3:18: The ball sits up nicely for Herrera 25 yards out from goal but his dipping half volley is comfortably saved by Schmeichel. His effort may have been going wide, anyway.

3:16: Six minutes of time added on.

3:13: Schlupp fires wide! Just on from the bench, he rolls his man on the edge of the edge of the box and fires for the bottom left corner, but it flies wide.

3:10: Blackett is shoved off the ball far too easily, losing the aerial battle with Ulloa, and clumsily catches the legs of the striker just as he is about to shoot. He was the last man, and has to go. Ulloa calmly slams the ball home to score his side's second penalty of the day and their fifth of the game.

Goal! Leicester City 5-3 Manchester United (Ulloa, 83)

RED CARD - Tyler Blackett (Manchester United)

PENALTY - Leicester City

3:05: From 3-1 down, Leicester have the lead! Juan Mata loses the ball inside his own half, allowing De Laet to race into space down the right. He lifts an excellent ball over to Vardey who has broken through one on one before slotting a calm finish past de Gea.

Goal! Leicester City 4-3 Manchester United (Vardey, 78)

3:02: Tottenham are behind at home! Erik Lamela falls asleep defending a corner, allowing Morrison to drift in at the far post and head home to give his side the lead.

Goal! Tottenham 0-1 West Brom (James Morrison, 71)

2:59: Radamel Falcao comes off and is replaced by Adnan Januzaj.

2:57: Regarding the penalty decision for Leicester's second; you will not see a softer decision this weekend. That call from Clattenburg changed the face of this game, the home side are now very much in the ascendancy

2:55: Leicester have dominated possession since pulling level. On the occasions where United have won the ball back they've failed to get a counter attack moving, with Falcao losing his footing in their latest effort to get the ball away. United forced to hoof the ball away on every occasion.

2:52: Leicester are level! United fail to clear and the ball falls to Cambiasso just inside the area, who drills a low effort into the bottom right corner.

Goal! Leicester City 3-3 Manchester United (Estaban Cambiasso, 64)

2:48: Leicester have pulled one back. Luke Varney barges Rafael off the ball to win it at the byline and advance into the box. The Brazilian chases his man into the box and under thew slightest of contact Varney goes down. Mark Clattenburg points to the spot and Nugent slams it past De Gea.

Goal! Leicester 2-3 Manchester United (David Nugent, 62)

PENALTY - Leicester City

2:44: Herrera has two in two! The ball is worked back to the edge of the area for Di Maria to hit a low effort on goal, but the Spaniard meets it with a neat flick to divert it past Schmeichel and into the of the net.

Goal! Leicester City 1-3 Manchester United (Ander Herrera, 56)

2:38: Falcao was desperately unlucky with that earlier effort.

2:35: Richie de Laet brings down Di Maria and having already been booked, is perhaps lucky to stay on the pitch.

2:32: Falcao rattles the cross bar with an outrageous effort! Herrera finds the Colombian just inside the left of the box with a lifed through ball, but the striker's improvised effort with the outside of his boot loops of Schmeichel and comes off the woodwork.

2:25: The new United in a nut shell? Two sublime moments going forward saw them take the lead but a lapse in concentration saw Leicester City claw a goal back. Angel di Maria is enjoying another sublime afternoon, scoring his side's second with an audacious chip, while his compatriot Estaban Cambiasso has taken to life in the Premier League at ease.


Leicester City 1-2 Manchester United

Tottenham 0-0 West Brom

2:13: Leicester again move the ball well on the counter, working it from left to right to find Varney but Blackett does brilliantly to get across and make the block.

2:10: Great chance for Rojo! Di Maria slices a half volley wide of goal, but much to the frustration of Leicester gets the corner. It's whipped into the box and the Argentine edges ahead of his man but his header is thumped over the bar.

2:06: Saido Berahino places the ball in the back of the net but the linesman has his flag up for offside.


2:02: West Brom feel they should have a penalty. They are probably right, too. Craig Dawson heads on a corner that appears to be blocked by the hand of Emmanuel Adebayor, but the referee waves play on.

1:59: Evans has come off for United. It's not quite clear where the Northern Irishman picked up the knock but he is unable to continue and Chris Smalling comes on for his first appearance of the season.

1:55: Konchesky greets Falcao with a crunching tackle that momentarily leaves the Colombian wincing. United win the corner that falls to Blind on the edge of the box but the Dutchman can only guide his volley into the hands of the goalkeeper.

1:51: Excellent reaction from the Foxes. United fell asleep at the back after going two ahead and paid the price. Meanwhile at White Hart Lane Spurs have assumed control of the contest but have yet to provide a cutting edge.

1:49: Leicester hit back immediately! Vardey chases a long ball down and whips in an excellent cross from the right that Ulloa meets and brilliantly guides past de Gea, leaving the Spaniard rooted.

1:45: Brilliant finish from di Maria! Thre Argentine again drives at the Leicester back line, playing a neat one two with Rooney on the edge of the box before lifting an audacious chipped effort over Schmeichel and into the back of the net. £59.7 well spent.

Goal! Leicester City 0-2 Manchester United (Angel di Maria, 16)

1:43: Against the run of play, United have the lead! Falcao, out on the left flank, brilliantly slips past his man and drives towards goal. He lifts a sublime cross over to the back post where his strike partner van Persie whose downwards header deflects off Moore en route to hitting the back of the net.

Goal! Leicester City 0-1 Manchester United (Robin van Persie, 12)

1:40: van Persie denied! Angel di Maria, with the ball at his feet, suddenly picks up pace and drives at the heart of the Leicester defence and slides an excellent ball through for the Dutchman down the inside left channel but Schmeichel is out quickly to block.

1:36: Great chance for Leicester! Di Maria loses the ball allowing the home side to counter, working the ball neatly from right to left. Nugent is fed on the edge of the box and slips an inviting ball out to Ulloa on his right but his first touch is a poor one and Evans comes into clear.

1:34: Leicester win a free kick on the half way line. Cambiasso plays it quickly and finds Nugent's clever run down the inside right channel but his cross towards Ulloa in the box is cleared.

1:32: Leicester win a free kick after Tyler Blackett comes in late on Moore. Cambiasso lifts a ball in towards the far post but it bypasses his teammates and United are awarded the goal kick.

1:30: And Leicester get us off and running.

1:25: And we are minutes away from kick off at the King Power Stadium and White Hart Lane.
