A last minute winner from Fernando Torres secured a 2-1 victory for Chelsea against Manchester City at Stamford Bridge yesterday afternoon.
Andre Schurrle opened the scoring on thirty-three minutes with his first goal for the club, only for Sergio Aguero to pull the visitors level four minutes into the second half.
The game looked to heading for a draw before Fernando Torres capitalised on a defensive mix up to steal in and grab the winner on ninety minutes to hand all three points to Jose Mourinho’s men, and keep the pressure on leaders Arsenal who beat lowly Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The Blues will reclaim top spot if they beat Newcastle United on Saturday lunchtime, with Arsenal hosting Liverpool in the day’s late kick off.
However, they will first turn their attention to the League Cup fourth round tie with the Gunners at the Emirates tomorrow evening.
Meanwhile, the Blues will reignite their interest in Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney when the transfer window reopens in January, according to the Mirror.
Mourinho failed in his attempts to take the England international, who’s current deal at United expires at the end of next season, to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
