London: Stiliyan Petrov and Darren Bent struck the late goals that secured a 3-1 victory for Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge and ensured Chelsea were unable to force their way back into the title race on Saturday.

Manchester United's home defeat to Blackburn Rovers immediately before kick-off meant Andre Villas-Boas' side had the chance to move within eight points of the top of the table.

But they were unable to make the most of the opportunity despite Didier Drogba putting the home side ahead with a first half penalty, his 150th goal for the club.
