Chelsea put a dent in Manchester United's Barclays Premier League title bid and reignited their own hopes of a top-four finish with a hugely controversial 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge.

The champions came from behind to claim all three points thanks to a first goal for the club for £25million David Luiz and a highly contentious Frank Lampard penalty.

The winner also came after David Luiz avoided a second yellow card for a cynical foul on Wayne Rooney, who had given United a half-time lead, while United's night got worse when Nemanja Vidic was sent off in stoppage-time.
