Chennai: Jeje Lalpekhlua scored a second-half double to help Chennaiyin FC go top of the table by edging past ATK 3-2 in a topsy-turvy Indian Super League (ISL) encounter at the Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium here on Thursday.

After a sedate first half with no goals, five goals were scored in the space of 25 minutes as ATK failed to log a win even after four matches. It was Jeje (65th, 90th minutes) who opened the floodgates but Zequinha (77th) equalised for Inigo Calderon (84th) to reclaim the lead once again. 

ATK's Finnish striker Njazi Kuqi (89th) made it 2-2 with the tie in its last legs but there was still time for Jeje -- who opened his account for the season with this brace -- to net a winner.
