Cole Palmer’s goal deep into added time earned Chelsea a quite sensational victory at Stamford Bridge, as they came from behind to beat Manchester United 4-3 in the most dramatic of circumstances.

The hosts drew first blood within the opening four minutes, with Conor Gallagher converting Malo Gusto’s deflected shot, before Palmer doubled the lead when slotting home from the penalty spot after a foul on Marc Cucurella.

The two-goal cushion did not last long though. The Red Devils levelled before the break, as Garnacho pulled one back following a Moises Caicedo error, before Bruno Fernandes equalised with a guided header.

Gallagher hit the post in added time as Chelsea tried to retake the lead, but they found themselves behind after half-time when Garnacho nodded home his second.

From there, the game looked to be fizzling out, but Palmer had other ideas, making it 3-3 with another penalty after Diogo Dalot had fouled Noni Madueke, before the former Manchester City man completed his hat-trick by smashing a deflected shot past Andre Onana.
