Chelsea led at halftime through an own-goal, but 2 goals from Robin van Persie gave the visitors victory.

Chelsea have 33 points and lead Liverpool on goal difference.... Manchester United are now just five points behind after a 1-nil victory at Manchester City, despite having Cristiano Ronaldo sent off.
