Carlos Tévez (pictured) scored just before half-time to equalize for Manchester City who then scored three unanswered goals in the second half to blast Chelsea 4-2 at Stamford Bridge. Tévez scored a second while Craig Bellamy recorded a brace of his own in the second half to best a double from Frank Lampard. The game was going to be contentious anyway, both because of the rocky relationship now between John Terry and Wayne Bridge, and because both sides badly needed points in their quests for top finishes in the Premier League. The loss keeps the Blues just a single point ahead of Manchester United who do not play in the league this weekend due to their spot in the Carling Cup final tomorrow. City jumped clear of the mess among European qualifiers and into fourth place. The Citizens are now just six points shy of Arsenal for third.
