Cole Palmer’s stoppage-time goal gave Chelsea a stunning victory at Stamford Bridge, as they beat Manchester United 4-3 in dramatic fashion.

The home side drew first blood in the opening four minutes when Conor Gallagher turned in Malo Gust’s shot before Palmer doubled their lead with a header from the penalty spot after a foul on Marco Cucurello.

However, the double goal advantage did not last long. The Red Devils equalized on the stroke of half-time when Garnacho took the lead after a mistake by Moises Caicedo, before Bruno Fernandes equalized with a header.

Gallagher hit the post in stoppage time as Chelsea tried to take the lead again, but found themselves behind after the break when Garnacho nodded home a second.

The game seemed to lose momentum from there, but Palmer had other ideas, making it 3-3 with another penalty after Diogo Dalot fouled Noni Madueka, the former Manchester City man, before completing his hat-trick, smashing a deflected shot. after André Onan.
