Manchester:

Robin van Persie scored in the fourth and final minute of injury time to earn Manchester United a 1-1 draw with leader Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday.

The Netherlands striker rammed home a loose ball from 10 meters to make amends for his error that helped Chelsea take the lead in the 53rd minute through veteran striker Didier Drogba.

Drogba met a corner from Cesc Fabregas with a towering header that should have been kept out by Van Persie, who was supposed to be guarding the near post. (Also read: Newcastle stun Tottenham 2-1)
