Top of the Premier upset on New Year's weekend

Both Manchester City and Manchester United lost over the weekend, Manchester City in the 92nd minute when they could have gone three points ahead.  Chelsea, still eight back of the leaders, almost tied but got a late goal from Frank Lampard on an Ashley Cole cross.  But Chelsea had previously lost 3-1 to Aston Villa.  It's almost unheard of for the top teams in the Premier League to all lose in the same weekend.

Also, Peter Crouch (married to the wondrous Abbey) scored two for Stoke City.

Match summaries:

Aston Villa 3, Chelsea 1

Wolverhampton 1, Chelsea 2

Last-gasp Ji stuns Man City
