LON­DON

Manch­ester United scaled the Premier League sum­mit for the first time this sea­son af­ter Robin van Per­sie scored against his old club Ar­se­nal in a vic­tory more com­fort­able than the 2-1 score­line sug­gested.

Van Per­sie's early ef­fort and a sec­ond-half header from Pa­trice Evra saw United leapfrog Chelsea af­ter the Lon­don side con­ceded a late equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Swansea City.

Vic­tor Moses put Chelsea ahead just past the hour in south Wales but Pablo Her­nan­dez grabbed a point in the 88th minute.

United are a point clear of the Euro­pean cham­pi­ons with 24 from 10 games while Manch­ester City missed the chance to move level on points at the top af­ter draw­ing 0-0 at West Ham United.
