With Chelsea heading for an embarrassing defeat against third-bottom Cardiff on Sunday, their captain Azpilicueta dragged them back into the match with a goal that appeared to be offside.

The visitors then completed the fightback when substitute Loftus-Cheek stormed in at the back post to plant a header in the bottom corner.

Chelsea stayed sixth in the table with 60 points, level with fifth-placed Arsenal, who have played a game fewer, and a point behind Manchester United in fourth.
