dictacted the proccedings for the first 30 minutes before Ogbeche turned it around for the visitors. 

The match was a goal-fest and it started like one. It took Chennai just three minutes to take the lead after United defender Rowllin Borges put the ball into his own net from an Anirudh Thapa corner. 

Twelve minutes later, Thoi Singh made it 2-0. Ogbeche pulled one back for his team in the 29th minute but Thoi Singh scored his second two minutes later to restore the two-goal deficit.

Ogbeche then put on his scoring boot to score twice in three minutes to make in 3-3. The second came in the 36th minute when Rowllin Borges spotted the run of the former PSG striker and put in a great lob for him. Borges chested down the ball and put it past Karanjit Singh to make it 3-2. A couple minutes later, Ogbeche received another ball over the top, this time by Gallego, and calmly rolled the ball beyond the onrushing goalkeeper and passed it into the empty net to make it 3-3.

Buyoed by the come-back, the visitors started the second half strongly, pushing men forward. They got their just reward in the 53rd minute when Reagan Singh floated a ball from the right wing into the box but a poor clearance allowed Rowllin Borges to calmly slot it past the diving Chennai goalkeeper for United's fourth goal.

Chennai's all-time top-scorer entered the pitch only in the 79th minute and couldn't change his team's fortune in the little time he got. Although he did have a difficult chance to draw his team level, he was a toe too short.

The win sends NorthEast United to the top of the table with two wins and a draw from three matches while the reigning champions Chennaiyin FC slip to the bottom of the table with three losses.

More bad news await Chennaiyin FC who now travel to the national capital to face Delhi Dynamos FC and then to Kolkata to face ATK. For now, it's time to get back to the drawing board.
