London, Dec 24:  Premier League leader Manchester United dropped points in the title race with a 1-1 draw at Swansea on Sunday, while Chelsea routed Aston Villa 8-0 with a devastating attacking master class.



United's run of five consecutive league wins was brought to a halt in south Wales when Michu canceled out Patrice Evra's opener for the visitors.

The game ended in acrimony, with United manager Alex Ferguson saying Swansea captain Ashley Williams “could have killed” striker Robin van Persie with a clearance.
