After six months in disgrace and self-imposed exile, Carlos Tevez returned a hero as he helped inspire a triumphant City comeback against Chelsea.

Fernando Torres settled a thrilling encounter with a gift of a stoppage-time Chelsea winner after a rush of blood from City goalkeeper Joe Hart and a mix-up with defender Matija Nastasic.

The odd sight of Chelsea’s all-time record goalscorer Lampard playing against them became even more uncomfortable for the Londoners as the veteran midfielder netted a late equalizer for 10-man City after coming off the bench. Lampard, released by Chelsea four months earlier, had joined City on a short-term deal before moving to New York. He refused to celebrate and later admitted he felt mixed emotions after canceling out Schurrle’s opener. City earlier had Pablo Zabaleta sent off.
