Thomas Lemar grabs dramatic winner for Atletico

Thomas Lemar scored a dramatic injury-time winner for Atletico Madrid.

La Liga champions Atletico Madrid came from behind to beat newly promoted Espanyol.

Thomas Lemar scored in the 99th minute to give Diego Simeone’s side a third victory from their opening four games.

The hosts led from the 40th minute through a Raul de Tomas looping header.

Yannick Carrasco levelled for Atletico 11 minutes from time with a brilliant solo goal before Lemar’s late winner.

The 25-year-old latched onto Carrasco’s flick.

He then unleashed a shot that the weak hand of Diego Lopez was unable to keep out.

It was an underwhelming Atletico return for striker Antoine Griezmann.

He was replaced by Joao Felix in the 58th minute.

Espanyol are still searching for their first victory since returning to Spain’s top flight.

Meanwhile unbeaten Atletico went top with 10 points from a possible 12.
