QPR stun Chelsea at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea lost at home to their London rivals.

Queens Park Rangers got their second victory of the season and their first in 34 years at the Stamford Bridge as they surprised Chelsea with a 1-0 win.

It was former Chelsea man, Shawn Wright-Philips, who came in as a substitute that got the winning strike that has lightened QPR’s New Year and brightened any chances they have of a possible relegation survival.

Chelsea were out of sorts, failing to replicate the spark that has seen them win their last four games.

Nigeria’s Victor Moses was handed a starter’s shirt but could not help the Blues, who created few chances on the night.

The result did not change the position of both teams on the log as Chelsea remain fourth and QPR 20th with 13 points.

In other matches played on Wednesday night, Luis Suarez scored a brace as Liverpool beat Sunderland 3-0. Newcastle also lost 1-2 at home to Everton.
