Chelsea beats Man U, Arsenal back in title race

Chelsea replaced Manchester United at the top of the Premier League with a 2-1 victory at Old Trafford on Saturday while an injury time winner by Nicklas Bendtner put Arsenal back in title contention with a 1-0 triumph over Wolves.
Joe Cole gave Chelsea the lead and substitute Didier Drogba made it 2-0 although the Ivory Coast striker looked well offside.
Federico Macheda replied two minutes later but Chelsea hung on for a league double over United this season and moved two points ahead at the top of the standings.
The result gave Chelsea 74 points from 33 games, United has 72 and third-place Arsenal has 71.
