Chelsea 2-1 Man Utd

Here is the good news for all the Chelsea fans !!... Yes.. Chelsea kept their faint Premier League title hopes alive and damaged Manchester United's own ambitions as they came from behind to beat the leaders at Stamford Bridge.
United looked well set to extend their four-point lead over second-placed Arsenal after
Wayne Rooney, who Sir Alex Ferguson admitted was fortunate to be playing after escaping further punishment for elbowing Wigan's James McCarthy on Saturday, gave them a deserved interval advantage.
But Chelsea, who left Didier Drogba on the bench as coach Carlo Ancelotti favoured Fernando Torres, staged a stirring fightback to move up to fourth and keep United in their sights on a night when nothing other than victory would have kept the Blues in contention.
David Luiz slammed in the equaliser early in the second half and Frank Lampard's disputed penalty secured three priceless points 10 minutes from time after Chelsea substitute Yuri Zhirkov clashed with Chris Smalling.
