Frank Lampard goal v former side Chelsea
Impressive Andre Schurrle goal for the opener.

It took a while for things to spring into life, but when Pablo Zabaleta was sent off in the second half the visitors leapt into action and took the lead through Andre Schurrle.

Things looked to be heading to another victory for Jose Mourinho’s men before of all people, club legend Frank Lampard scored the equaliser for his new side.

Here is how the Blues rated:

13. Thibaut Courtois – 7

Another decent display from the 22-year-old who continues to prove he is the right choice ahead of Petr Cech and could do nothing about Lampard’s strike.

2. Branislav Ivanovic – 6

Continues to look good going forward, but was uncharacteristically a bit lapse at the back to allow James Milner it to setup the equaliser.

24. Gary Cahill – 7

Looked good once again and an impressive City attack was made to look average by the England international and his defensive partner.

26. John Terry – 7

The captain was just as solid as Cahill and between them Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko were kept extremely quiet.

28. Cesar Azpilicueta – 6

Another strong performance from the Spaniard, who is less a makeshift and more of an established left-back now.
