Didier Drogba struck twice as Chelsea came from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 at Stamford Bridge and keep alive their hopes of catching Barclays Premier League leaders Manchester United.

Bacary Sagna, who later went off injured, headed the Gunners in front from a near-post corner on the hour.

However, Drogba netted twice in eight minutes to turn the game around and move the Blues above Arsenal into second place, but still five points behind United - who have yet to come to Stamford Bridge.
