Blues go back to summit of Division 1 with a hard-fought point against third-placed Rams

Chelsea came from two goals down to return to the summit of Premier League 2 Division 1 with a 3-3 draw against Derby County

Arsenal had gone top of the league on Friday night but both Chelsea and third-placed Derby had the chance to leapfrog the Gunners.

It looked like the Rams would do so as they were 3-1 up after 55 minutes thanks to goals from Josh Shonibare, Louie Sibley and Jahmal Hector-Ingram. 

Jonathan Russell scored Chelsea's first goal and they fought back to earn a point and remain unbeaten this season with strikes by Clinton Mola and Charlie Brown.
