ARSENAL kept tabs on the Premier League's leading pack when they came from a goal down at Stamford Bridge to beat top-of-the-table Chelsea on Sunday.

But in the second half Robin van Persie raised hopes for Arsenal when he blasted the ball into the net for 1-1 and then rocked the Blues three minutes later when he scored with a left footed drive for an unlikely 2-1 lead.
