Atletico Madrid 3-2 Eibar: Late winner for Simeone's side who fight back from two-goal deficit

Thomas Partey scores Atletico Madrid's winning goal
Atletico had not won a game they had trailed in by two goals since 2009

Atletico Madrid scored a late winner as they fought back from two goals down against Eibar to maintain their 100% start to the La Liga season.

Thomas Partey's 90th minute goal sealed a fine comeback for Atletico who are two points clear at the top of the table.

With Barcelona and Real Madrid both drawing, it ensured Diego Simeone's side made ground on both their rivals.

Real are four points back in fifth with Barcelona five points behind in eighth.

A header from Brazilian forward Charles and a deflected Anaitz Arbilla strike put the visitors two goals up inside 20 minutes.

However, Diego Costa's rampaging run down the right provided Joao Felix with a tap in for his first goal in Spain since his £113m summer move from Benfica.

Substitute Vitolo then steered an equaliser into the bottom right corner after being put clear by left-back Renan Lodi

Former Chelsea forward Costa then lifted the ball over the top of the Eibar defence for Ghana midfielder Partey to bundle in during a dramatic finale.
