United on top of Premier League, Chelsea fade

Latest update : 2009-04-23

Manchester United tightened the screws in the Premier League title race with a 2-0 win over Portsmouth as Chelsea were held to a 0-0 home draw by Everton.

AFP - Manchester United regained top spot in the English Premier League with a 2-0 win over Portsmouth at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

 

Wayne Rooney's ninth minute goal was all that separated the sides until fellow England international Michael Carrick scored eight minutes from time.

 

Victory saw reigning champions United go three points clear of Liverpool, held to a dramatic 4-4 draw by Arsenal on Tuesday, with a game in hand.

 

Wednesday's other Premier League match saw third-placed Chelsea's slim hopes of winning the title all but evaporate after they were held to a goalless draw at home to Everton.

 

That result left the Blues six points behind United, having played one game more than Sir Alex Ferguson's side.
