Chelsea have moved to the top of the table after beating Liverpool 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

After a goal-less first half, Nikolas Anelka scored for the blues 15 minutes into the second half.

The second goal was scored by Florent Malouda one minute into extra time, with some help from Didier Droba.

Liverpool wasted some good chances, but now the blues are two points clear of Manchester United at the top of the table.
