A stoppage-time strike from Robin Van Persie was all Manchester United needed to salvage a point in a breath-taking encounter with League leaders and title favourites, Chelsea at old trafford.
The table leaders dropped points for just the second time this term when the Dutchman rammed in after Marouane Fellaini’s header was saved by Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois. Chelsea?s other draw came against defending champions Manchester City in Manchester.
Didier Drogba’s near post header had given Jose Mourinho’s men the lead but Branislav Ivanovic was sent off late on and Manchester United capitalized from the ensuing free kick.
Chelsea are now four points clear of second-placed Southampton.
