Frank Lampard buried the equalizer five minutes from time against his former team.
Manchester, England (SportsNetwork.com) -
Frank Lampard came off the bench to score an 85th-minute equalizer against his former team on Sunday for Manchester City as the defending champions claimed a 1-1 draw with Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium.
Lampard is one of the most beloved figures at Chelsea in recent times, but after leaving the club over the summer, he joined City on loan and buried the equalizer five minutes from time after Andre Schurrle had given the Blues the lead in the 71st.
Following a feisty opening half that saw more tough tackles than scoring chances, City was reduced to 10 men in the 65th minute when Pablo Zabaleta was sent off for picking up a second yellow card in a challenge on Diego Costa.
