Blues fight back to win

Published Add your comment

Branislav Ivanovic headed a dramatic 82nd-minute winner for Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea as Blackburn were punished for their missed chances in a 2-1 defeat.

The home side had only Benjani Mwaruwari's opener to show for their first-half dominance and Nicolas Anelka's 39th minute header dragged the visitors level.

Rovers should still have won it when Jason Roberts missed a glorious chance in the 81st minute and less than a minute later Ivanovic nodded home a Yury Zhirkov cross at the other end.
