MANCHESTER, England (AP) Frank Lampard made Chelsea pay for releasing him this summer after 13 years, scoring a trademark equalizer against his former club for Manchester City in a 1-1 draw between the two biggest contenders for the Premier League title on Sunday.

Chelsea's four-match winning run to open the season was ended by its all-time record scorer, with Lampard arriving late in the box - as he did so often at Stamford Bridge - to sidefoot home in the 85th minute.

Applauded on and off the pitch by Chelsea's traveling support, Lampard - keeping his head down - held his arm out in an attempt to hold off the advances of his joyous teammates and didn't celebrate his first goal for City.
