Manchester United will move to within a point of the top four of the Premier League if they can beat Everton on Sunday after Chelsea dropped two points at Bournemouth .
Frank Lampard's side led at the break at the Vitality Stadium through a Marcos Alonso strike, only to then succumb to quickfire efforts from Jefferson Lerma and Josh King.
However Alonso then struck again five minutes from time to earn Chelsea a point from a 2-2 draw.
The draw means that the Blues will stay fourth in the table whatever happens to United at Goodison Park on Sunday.
However, a win for the Red Devils would see Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side move to within six points of third-place Leicester City, who lost 1-0 at basement club Norwich City on Friday.
With neither Sheffield United or Arsenal in Premier League action this weekend, either Tottenham or Wolves could strike a huge blow for their top four chances when they meet in north London on Sunday afternoon.
