Cole Palmer scored in the 100th and 101st minute as Chelsea secured an epic and extraordinary 4-3 win against Manchester United.

Man Utd were leading in this game at 99 minutes and 17 seconds – the latest a side has ever led in a Premier League match they have gone on to lose. It is also the second time in less than a week that Man Utd have lost a lead in added time.

Despite having given up a two-goal lead, the Blues fought back and a late drama which saw Palmer score twice after the 100 minute mark, handed them the win.

Conor Gallagher had opened the scoring in the fourth minute when Palmer scored his first for the night to double their lead.

In a loud Stamford Bridge stadium, United fought back, with Alejandro Garnacho and Bruno Fernandes ensuring that both sides were level at halftime.

Garnacho soon put the Red Devils in the lead in mid second half before the late drama ensued and the hosts secured all three points.
