LONDON — Three goals down after 50 minutes at Chelsea, Manchester United produced a trademark comeback to draw 3-3 on Sunday and stay within reach of Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.

But even though a point had appeared an unlikely prospect early in the second half, manager Alex Ferguson was still aggrieved.

Ferguson says: "It's two dropped points."

Jonny Evans' first-half own goal put Chelsea in front, goals then followed from Juan Mata and David Luiz at the start of the second half.

But fourth-place Chelsea collapsed, conceding two penalties that Wayne Rooney converted and Javier Hernandez leveled in the 84th minute.

United is two points behind leader City.

Newcastle is fifth after beating Aston Villa 2-1.
