Chelsea second loss

premier league live betsChelsea lost 0-1 derby with Queens Park Rangers 'Loftus Road', thereby players of Andre Villa-Boash missed the opportunity to shift from Manchester United in second place.

Extremely exaggerated penalty incurred by Heydari Helguson in the 10th minute brought the three points of QPR and Chelsea stayed nine more people in the 40th minute after a controversial red card Drogba and Bosingwa.

Heidar Helguson's penalty was the difference between the sides as referee Chris Foy did nothing to endear himself to the travelling Blues fans, with Chelsea suffering their second defeat of the season at the hands of their West London rivals.

Rangers took a surprise early lead when Helguson dusted himself of to score from the spot after he was awarded a penalty after a tussle with David Luiz. With the Blues on the wrong side of the scoreline, their chances of taking three points back to Stamford Bridge were made even more difficult when Bosingwa was given his marching orders for pulling back Shaun Wright-Phillips on the edge of the penalty area.

And Chelsea were reduced to nine shortly before half-time when Didier Drogba was shown a straight red card for a two-footed lunge on Adel Taarabt. Striker Daniel Sturridge made way for Branislas Ivanovic as Andre Villas-Boas attempted to shore up the Chelsea defence, but the nine men made a fight of it as they desperately searched for an equaliser.

With the clock ticking down, Ivanovic's cross found Nicolas Anelka, but the Frenchman's header was straight at Paddy Kenny, who gratefully got his hands on the ball. Then, moments later, David Luiz's spectacular overhead scissor-kick met Anelka's chipped cross but it hit Frank Lampard and flew over the bar.
