Chelsea completed a remarkable comeback to beat Manchester City 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday and kept their Premier League winning run intact.

The Blues had fell behind in the clash when Gary Cahill turned the ball into the back of his own net on the stroke of half time before the visitors took advantage of a host of missed chances from City to turn the game on its head.

Diego Costa equalised on the hour mark before substitute Willian and Eden Hazard secured the three points with their goals later in the second half to keep Chelsea – who have now won eight games in a row – top of the standings by a point.

The game finished with unsavory scenes as Sergio Aguero was given a straight red card following a reckless challenge on David Luiz.

Tension over-boiled further as Fernandinho pursued Fabregas before pushing the Spaniard into the crowd as City went down to nine men.

“Eight in a row doesn’t happen too often… we showed great character against Tottenham, and again today,” he said.

“I didn’t see [the red cards], I was on the bench. I don’t want to talk about that, I want to talk about football.”
