United mount stunning comeback at Chelsea

Manchester United FC came back from 3-0 down to claim a sensational point at Chelsea FC, on a day when Newcastle United FC beat Aston Villa FC to cement fifth spot in the Premier League.

Manchester United FC failed to keep pace with rivals Manchester City FC at the Premier League summit despite coming back from three goals down to earn a thrilling point against Chelsea FC at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea seemed to have wrapped up maximum points after just 50 minutes, as David Luiz's header, added to Jonny Evans' 36th-minute own goal and Juan Mata's sumptuous back-post volley (46), put the Blues into a 3-0 lead. United battled back, though, Wayne Rooney coolly converting penalties in the 58th and 69th minutes before Javier Hernández scored a dramatic equaliser. United stay second, two points adrift of City and six ahead of Tottenham Hotspur FC, who travel to Liverpool FC on Monday night.

In the day's early kick-off, Newcastle United FC continued their fine form with a 2-1 home win against Aston Villa FC, courtesy of a stunning 71st-minute debut winner from January signing Papiss Demba Cissé.
