Premier League title race is on!

Chelsea's Didier Drogba and Liverpool's David Ngog

Chelsea and Liverpool are still in the race to take the Premier League title thanks to victories against Portsmouth and Sunderland on Tuesday night.

Didier Drogba scored late on, despite the driving wind and rain, to give Chelsea a 1-0 away win at Fratton Park.

And Liverpool beat Sunderland 2-0 at Anfield, with David Ngog scoring his first league goal for the club and Yossi Benayoun netting a second.

The wins put the Reds and Blues just four points behind Manchester United.

But United have still got the upper hand as they've played two fewer games than their nearest rivals.


Meanwhile, it was also a good night for Arsenal who ended their goalless run with a 3-1 win at West Bromwich Albion.

Kolo Toure headed Arsenal back into the lead when it was tied at 1-1 before Nicklas Bendtner secured the victory by scoring his second of the match just a minute before the half-time whistle.
