Bulgaria star Dimitar Berbatov failed to impress as Manchester United lost 1-2 to Chelsea.

Chelsea regained control of the title race as victory at Old Trafford saw them leapfrog Manchester United at the Premier League summit.

Didier Drogba's contentious strike - scored from a clearly offside position with 11 minutes remaining - was the decisive moment as Chelsea established a two-point lead at the top of the table, the BBC reported.

Drogba only emerged as a late substitute after being left on the bench in favor of Nicolas Anelka, but his priceless strike was a moment of triumph for Coach Carlo Ancelotti and perfect reward for his bold tactical move.

Joe Cole's clever flick gave Chelsea a well-merited lead after 20 minutes as Sir Alex Ferguson's champions struggled for creativity with injured inspiration Wayne Rooney watching in frustration from the sidelines.

Drogba's goal looked to have sealed Chelsea's win, but Federico Macheda's scrambled effort - which also had a hint of handball - set up a grandstand finish in which Rooney's replacement Dimitar Berbatov wasted a glorious chance to equalise.
