Substitute scores in stoppage time to seal a 2-2 draw against Man Utd

Ross Barkley scored a last-gasp equaliser against Manchester United to maintain Chelsea's unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Chelsea took the lead when Antonio Rudiger powerfully headed Willian's corner past David De Gea on 21 minutes.

Anthony Martial pulled United level 10 minutes into the second half, firing into the bottom corner from close range, before finishing off a counter-attack with 17 minutes to go.

But just as United were set to claim a rare league win at Stamford Bridge, Barkley pounced on a loose ball in the area in the sixth minute of stoppage time to seal a dramatic point.

The draw briefly moved Chelsea to the top of the table with 21 points, although they were overtaken later in the day by Manchester City and Liverpool.

United stay eighth on 14 points.
