2009: Arsenal 0-3 Chelsea

Premier League pacesetters Chelsea increased their lead over rivals Arsenal to 11 points with a Didier Drogba-inspired victory.

The Ivorian striker guided an Ashley Cole cross into the top corner to put the visitors ahead. 

Another Cole delivery was then diverted into his own net by Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen. 

Drogba powered in a 25-yard free-kick with four minutes to play, sealing the win in emphatic style.

The result maintained Chelsea's top spot on 36 points, while Arsenal, with 25 points, were in fourth.

2014: QPR 3-2 Leicester City

Charlie Austin scored the winner to move QPR off the foot of the table, leap-frogging fellow strugglers Leicester City. 

Esteban Cambiasso netted after four minutes to open the scoring for the visitors, and in doing so ended Leicester's 504-minute goal drought. 

Wes Morgan turned the ball into his own net to make it 1-1 before Leroy Fer restored QPR's lead before half-time. 

Jeffrey Schlupp’s low finish brought Leicester back on level terms, but in an end-to-end match, Austin’s header won it for QPR.

Despite the win, QPR remained in the bottom three with 11 points. The defeat sent Leicester to the foot of the table on 10 points, just one point away from safety.
