Chelsea trailed eight points adrift of leaders Manchester United in the English Premiership league after Michael Essien's superb shot rescued the Blues for a 1-1 draw with visiting Arsenal on Sunday.

Ashley Cole, facing old club Arsenal for the first time, picked up a booking in the first half, while a Frank Lampard shot hit the post for Chelsea.

It was Arsenal who took a 78th-minute lead against the run of play, Mathieu Flamini shooting past Henrique Hilario.

Six minutes later Essien's shot made it 1-1, with the Ghanian and Frank Lampard hitting the woodwork in stoppage time.

The draw leaves Chelsea eight points trailing United, who have played a game more than the Premiership title-holders.

As well as deciding whether Chelsea could close the gap on leaders United, this game's sub-plot was Cole becoming reacquainted with his old club after his acrimonious departure earlier in the season.
