By Jonathan Stevenson

2217: Thanks for your time, and thanks for your patience tonight, I know I'm pushing it a bit with my phenomenal lack of goals. I'm like a modern day Robert Rosario. Anyway, tune in to BBC Radio 5 Live for 606, if you fancy it. See you soon.

2214: I can't leave you Chelsea fans without a Barcelona update - they are playing a very, very fine Sevilla side and are making them look like schoolboys. With 57 minutes gone, it's 4-0. Scintillating stuff.

From Kev the Blue, via text on 81111: "I thought Leighton Baines was terrific tonight. Take note Mr Capello."

2210: Does the title race depend on Tottenham going to Manchester United on Saturday and beating the champions? It just might do. But here's a thought: if Wilson Palacios had played for Spurs all season, based on results since he joined the club they would be third. And if Harry Redknapp had been there all season, they'd be fifth. Thanks go to Spurs' Sammy, for that chat.

From samfiske on 606: "Another unconvincing performance from United. We haven't taken our chances but are lucky it was only against Portsmouth, with respect. With finishing like that against Arsenal, we have little hope of progressing to the final. Still, the three points is what matters and thankfully we're back a the top. And I take my hat off to Paul Scholes, a true legend; a great servant to the club and a model professional."

2203: Manchester United may have been knocked out of the FA Cup on Sunday, but they remain on course for a truly astonishing season. They have already won the Carling Cup and Club World Cup, they have a hand on the Premier League and know how to win the Champions League, too. Not bad, eh?

From BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Old Trafford: "Manchester United were workmanlike as opposed to spectacular - but spectacular only earned Liverpool a point last night whereas Old Trafford is celebrating a crucial victory.

"There is still that lingering feeling that United are not quite at their best, but they will not complain as they sit three points clear at the Premier League summit with a game in hand."

2156: So, are Chelsea officially out of the title race? After tonight, you could be forgiven for thinking it's back to being a one-horse race. That was a consummately professional performance by Manchester United.

Full-time

2155: Full-time Chelsea 0-0 Everton

2154: Seconds remaining at Chelsea - Petr Cech has a bloodied nose after that clash with Jo, but he'll be OK.

BBC Radio 5 Live

From BBC Radio 5 Live's Chris Waddle: "In spells they looked laboured, Manchester United, and they didn't play that well at any stage, but they deserved to win, you can't really argue with that. As for Pompey, I think they'll stay up this season."

Full-time

2153: Full-time Manchester United 2-0 Portsmouth

2152: With 93 minutes on the clock at Chelsea, Didier Drogba hits the crossbar with a sharp turn and shot from six yards after a goalmouth scramble.

2151: Rafael has two chances to make it 3-0 but he's denied by a mass of Pompey bodies at the near post. Soon after, Cristiano Ronaldo volleys over. They're just playing out time now.

2149: Petr Cech speeds out of his goal as Jo tries to latch on to a long ball forward and the Czech keeper gets there first, heading the ball into the Brazilian just before they collide. They both need some treatment, so we're not done yet.

2148: Everton bring on young Jack Rodwell for Leon Osman. Almost into injury time at Stamford Bridge.

From BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Old Trafford: "Ferguson's decision to replace Anderson with Michael Carrick has the desired effect - but the majority of Manchester United's players race to Paul Scholes, whose gorgeous pass created the opening. Relief all round at Old Trafford and a mood of celebration has replaced the air of tension that was starting to swirl around the Theatre of Dreams."

From John in Torquay, via text on 81111: "I hope the FA Cup final is better than this."

2144: Steven Pienaar drives a shot narrowly wide after a Tim Cahill flick-on as Everton go close again themselves at Chelsea. Could still go either way - but massive credit to the visitors for this gutsy performance. They just won't lie down ever, will they?

Goooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal

2142: GOAL Manchester United 2-0 Portsmouth
Game over. Paul Scholes shows a flash of absolute genius to thread a pass inbetween two Pompey defenders and Michael Carrick runs on to it and drills low into the far corner. Lovely goal.

2141: Cristiano Ronaldo places the ball down with real intent 40 yards out. But Richard Hughes sees the referee pointing a bit further back, walks up to Ronaldo, picks the ball up, and places it five yards further back. Ronaldo looks like someone has nicked his ball.

2139: "It's kitchen sink time for Chelsea," says my colleague Sam. About time, too. Get us a goal, someone. Anyone.

From BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Old Trafford: "Growing anxiety inside Old Trafford now as United waste their opportunities and Portsmouth show signs of life as an attacking force. Manchester United should have the game wrapped up and the fact that they haven't is turning the pressure up just a little. Sir Alex Ferguson has now made an appearance in the technical area just to remind his players what needs to be done."

2138: Salomon Kalou's effort is deflected wide by the man in the right place, Joleon Lescott. Can Chelsea find a late winner?

Get involved on 606

From Pizzorno8 on 606: "Stevo, I think the recent glut of high scoring games has somewhat undermined your appreciation of a 0-0. There may not be an Arshavin masterpiece in this game, but this is a good end to end game of football."
Join the debate on 606

2136: Michael Carrick comes on for Anderson, who has got through a fair bit of work tonight. Well done to the goal-shy Brazilian.

2135: Salomon Kalou powers a header over from 10 yards from a Florent Malouda cross.

2135: Boy does Andrey Arshavin's solo masterpiece feel like a lifetime ago. Just under 15 left at Chelsea, just over 15 left at United.

2134: Joleon Lescott blocks Frank Lampard's goalbound shot from 16 yards as Chelsea go on the attack.

2133: There's a half-chance at Chelsea, with a turn and shot from 20 yards from Jo ending with a left-foot shot a bit high, a bit wide, and a bit symptomatic of what we've seen all night.

2130: Chances at either end at United, with Peter Crouch heading at Edwin van der Sar at one end and then Wayne Rooney shooting at David James at t'other.

From Russ, Derby, via text on 81111: "See 2102 might have something to do with your choice of club, Stevo."

Peesh. Since when did anyone ever actually get to choose their club? Pipe down, kid.

From BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Old Trafford: "Dimitar Berbatov is moving at typically leisurely pace down the touchline as he starts a warm-up. United are seeking an extra spark at the moment and it could be time for the introduction of the Bulgarian. The Old Trafford crowd are now trying to lift United as they bid to close this game out."

2126: Sean Davis plays the ball over Patrice Evra and into the path of Jermaine Pennant, but his ball is at an awkward height for Peter Crouch and his volley dribbles off target. Real chance for Pompey.

2126: I hope Chelsea are going to watch a video of Barcelona when they arrive at training tomorrow. Their next opponents in the Champions League are 2-0 at home against Sevilla with 26 minutes on the clock. They're all over them.

Get involved on 606

From Eagleeeee on 606: "Capello would probably make a note of Baines. His tackling and defensive work has been top class. He's also got a good cross on him and loves getting forward. Perfect for England."
Join the debate on 606

2122: Great run down the right at OT from Glen Johnson, who tricks his way past Wayne Rooney and sends over a devilish low cross, but Edwin van der Sar is expertly alert and he gets the ball away from danger. Good, if rare, moment from Pompey.

2121: I'm not quite sure I'm really about to type this, but here goes: John Terry moves forward from defence and hits a LEFT-FOOT piledriver from 35 yards that Tim Howard has to tip around his left-hand post. Remarkable.

2119: Jon Mikel Obi, on his 22nd birthday, and Salomon Kalou come on for Nicolas Anelka and Michael Essien.

2116: Nicolas Anelka latches on to a flick-on from Didier Drogba down the right, but with no options in the penalty area he shoots from out on the right, and it misses the far post by miles. Chelsea have been hugely disappointing thus far.

2116: Wayne Rooney is on the left-hand side of the Pompey area and he finds Ryan Giggs with a delicious pass, but David James comes out very quickly again to deny the Welshman a goal.

2115: Fabio Capello is at Stamford Bridge. Now it would be a touch harsh to say he looks bored, but he does have his arms folded and he's almost certainly seen better games this season.

From BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Old Trafford: "Cristiano Ronaldo delivers two poor crosses in quick succession from dangerous positions and then simply stands with his hands on his hips - as body language goes it's poor. United are in total control, but as long as the lead remains a single goal nerves will be jangling, if only slightly."

2112: John O'Shea's problem doesn't resolve itself and he has to limp off, with Rafael coming on in his place. Right-back number three of the evening.

2111: United's John O'Shea has got a problem.

2110: Ryan Giggs plays a brilliant first-time pass to Cristiano Ronaldo down the right and the Portuguese's first touch is magnificent, giving him acres of space to run into as he tears into the box, but his cross is off-target and Wayne Rooney at the back post is left holding his head in his hands as Pompey clear.

2107: Paul Scholes tries to send Cristiano Ronaldo through down the right, but David James comes off his line quickly to head clear five yards outside his area.

2106: Everton start the second half as they played in the first and Lars Jacobsen clips a cross in for Tim Cahill, but the Australian's diving header is saved by Petr Cech.

2106: Jermaine Pennant comes on for David Nugent at half-time for Portsmouth and they're back under way at OT.

2104: Ho hum. We're back in the mix at Chelsea.

2102: So, Cheesy gets eight goals in one game, including four goals from the same brilliant Russian, and I get one goal in two games so far. I'm starting to think football might have something against me...

From Sean in Portsmouth, via text on 81111: "A lot of people were predicting 3-0 down by half-time. Pompey are still in this game."

From singhsta2006 on 606: "Everton should be at least 1-0 up, if Saha had started instead of Jo they would be leading. Hiddink needs an inspirational second half as the first half was dire."
Join the debate on 606

2054: "Anybody who thinks the 37 points we've got makes us safe already is a fool," said Pompey boss Paul Hart prior to tonight's game. Well, his players are playing like they are already safe - Portsmouth need to at least turn up to try and make a game of it.

BBC Radio 5 Live

From BBC Radio 5 Live's Chris Waddle: "United are 1-0 up and they should have had more, they've wasted plenty of chances even though they're not playing at their best. Portsmouth need to get on of their midfielders off, get Jermaine Pennant on and get David Nugent up front."

Half-time

2048: Half-time Manchester United 1-0 Portsmouth

From Simon in Surrey, via text on 81111: "Ryan Giggs, justifying his PFA nomination with his lowest amount of appearances in a season. Well done to the PFA - no Alonso, no Lampard, no Everton centre-backs!"

Half-time

2047: Half-time Chelsea 0-0 Everton

2046: Cristiano Ronaldo back-heels the ball to Wayne Rooney down the right, he clips it in for Darren Fletcher on the edge of the penalty area and the Scottish midfielder rolls it plenty wide. United should be out of sight.

2043: Everton hit back immediately and Steven Pienaar finds Jo, but the Brazilian falls over while attempting to hit the trigger from 20 yards and the chance goes a-begging.

2043: Nicolas Anelka gets into space down the Chelsea right and he's only got to pick Florent Malouda out in the middle and it's probably 1-0 - but Anelka's cross is claimed by Tim Howard.

From mitzy_boy on 606: "All these misses by Man Utd could come to haunt them."
Join the debate on 606

2040: How has he missed? On his 799th appearance for Manchester United, Ryan Giggs won't get a better chance. Cristiano Ronaldo turn on the turbo down the right and cross to the edge of the six-yard box, but Giggs tries to be a bit too clever and clip it over David James, the ball falling a couple of yards the other side of the post.

2038: Edwin van der Sar plays a fabulous long ball into the Pompey half and nearly sets Anderson through, but Sol Campbell gets across quickly to avert the danger.

From BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Old Trafford: "Manchester United are dominating possession and it looks like only a matter of time before they add to their lead. Portsmouth's ex-Liverpool striker Peter Crouch is receiving some predictable abuse from the Old Trafford crowd - remember he was once booed on here when appearing as an England substitute - but he is acquitting himself well with little or no support."

2034: Good penalty shout for Everton, with Leighton Baines going over Alex's leg inside the Chelsea penalty area, but referee Mark Halsey waves them away. Moments later Tim Cahill's turn and shot forces a low save from Petr Cech.

2032: Woeful defending from Portsmouth as they gift the ball to Wayne Rooney - he plays in Ryan Giggs and it looks for all the world as though it's going to be 2-0, but the Welshman rifles his shot into the chest of David James.

2030: Ryan Giggs swings over a corner from the right and John O'Shea glances it goalwards, with Nadir Belhadj clearing it off the line.

2030: Michael Ballack curls a free-kick up and over the bar from 30 yards. Chelsea are dominating possession, but they are lacking that creative spark right now, as are Everton, who are presumably shattered still.

From Zippy, George and Bungle on 606: "Ever since Anderson has come back into the United side, beginning at Porto, they've looked superb in midfield. What a great young player United have got on their hands."
Join the debate on 606

2027: After some treatment, David Nugent comes back on, but he's hobbling a bit, the former Preston and England man.

2026: Let's clear this one up - there's some conjecture over whether Ryan Giggs was onside when Anderson played him down the left for Wayne Rooney's goal. He was onside, by a yard at least. There, all cleared up.

Yellow card

2025: Nemanja Vidic is booked for a poor challenge through the back of Pompey's David Nugent, who is in some pain.

2023: Steven Pienaar fancies a right-foot curler from 25 yards after being teed up by Leon Osman, but his radar is a couple of yards wide of Petr Cech's left-hand post.

2022: Nadir Belhadj has had a shocking start and he smashes a corner from the right miles beyond everyone and out for a United throw. Pompey need to step this up.

2021: Manchester United are knocking it around with ease - Portsmouth keep giving the ball away cheaply and they are in for a long night if this continues. Cristiano Ronaldo is given offside - remember, it was this fixture last season when he hit his outrageous free-kick from 30 yards.

2019: Cristiano Ronaldo gets his head on to a Ryan Giggs cross from the right, but it lacks any real power and David James collects.

Text in your views on 81111

From Anon, via text on 81111: "Kudos to Paul Scholes. He is the epitome of the perfect professional and a family man to boot. So refreshing to see a player in the papers purely on footballing terms."

2016: Michael Ballack has a free header from a Frank Lampard free-kick, but nods well off target.

From BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Old Trafford: "Wayne Rooney's name echoes around Old Trafford as he sweeps away some early Manchester United lethargy in the best manner possible - with that crucial opening goal. Portsmouth looked towards the linesman for an offside flag when Ryan Giggs received Anderson's pass, but no joy.

"Other factors are at work here tonight. United need the win, but racking up some goals in an emphatic victory will aid that all-important goal difference, with Liverpool currently holding that particular advantage."

Yellow card

2014: Everton captain Phil Neville is booked for a lunging foul on Didier Drogba, who certainly made the most of that chance to go down.

2013: John O'Shea has come on for the injured Gary Neville for Manchester United.

2013: Anderson finds Wayne Rooney and his shot is straight at David James from 25 yards. James bowls it out to Hayden Mullins but he miscontrols and Anderson slams in a left-foot shot a few yards wide from 30 yards. Another goal and this one's over.

2011: Gary Neville is receiving treatment on the touchline, he looks to be in quite a bad way.

Goooooooooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal

2009: GOAL Manchester United 1-0 Portsmouth
Don't look, Liverpool fans. Anderson slips the evergreen Ryan Giggs in down the left and he gets into the box and sends the ball across the six-yard area for Wayne Rooney to tap in at the far post. Easy, frankly.

2008: Fabulous save from Petr Cech, though Jo - and a whole heap of Evertonians - will feel the Brazilian should have scored after being played through down the inside left channel.

From Ashy07 on 606: "All Pompey so far."

2006: Chelsea make their first foray into the Everton box, but Joleon Lescott eventually gets the ball clear after Joseph Yobo had tackled the ever-dangerous Didier Drogba.

2004: Pompey have made a bright start and Nadir Belhadj lashes a left-foot miles over from 30 yards.

2003: First chance at Chelsea falls to the visitors, with Steven Pienaar sending over a cross from the left and Jo heading goalwards, Petr Cech dealing with it easily.

2003: Paul Scholes gives the ball away with his first touch, but moments later Cristiano Ronaldo is inches away from setting Wayne Rooney through down the middle.

2001: We are under way. In both games.

1958: Great ovation for Paul Scholes on his 600th appearance for Manchester United tonight, what a fabulous achievement from the ginger genius.

1956: The four sets of teams are out and we're not far off getting under way at Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford.

1955: There are some nervous faces in the crowd at Old Trafford. Surely there cannot be another ludicrous twist in the title race tonight? If United are struggling, they won't be able to turn to Federico Macheda, the 17-year-old who has scored the winner in their last two league matches.

From BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Old Trafford: "England backroom boy Stuart Pearce clearly didn't get enough excitement for one week at Anfield last night. He is here at Old Trafford and, as at Anfield, is locked in animated conversation with Stoke manager Tony Pulis. At least there are some English players for Pearce to watch here because they were in short supply last night."

1950: It's a safe bet that Everton manager David Moyes has been more nervous before a game, even though being the man he is, he will expect his team to get something from Chelsea in their FA Cup final dress rehearsal tonight. But the Toffees have not won in 21 league and cup matches against Chelsea, since a 2-1 victory on 25 November, 2000, when Danny Cadamarteri and Kevin Campbell reaped.

From Hanna, 15, Bath, via text on 81111: "See 1926 - Saloman Kalou certainly floats my boat..."

Hanna, you sexist.

1944: Manchester United have a 100% home Premier League record against today's visitors, with an aggregate score of 13-1. United have also won 13 of their last 15 top-flight matches - though Pompey did win on their last trip to the Theatre of Dreams, 1-0 in the FA Cup last season, thanks to a Sulley Muntari penalty.

1938: There is news of a different sort emanating from Old Trafford tonight, and it involves bench-warming Argentine forward Carlos Tevez. He's told Argie radio he doesn't think he'll be staying at the club next season. Real Madrid and Inter Milan - time to get involved.

From Ben in Marlborough, via text on 81111: "Who would you bet on scoring 4 tonight?"

Easy. Cristiano Ronaldo.

From BBC Sport's Phil McNulty at Old Trafford: "Lots of pre-match debate about Manchester United's Dimitar Berbatov and how he would react to the heavy criticism that came his way after that languid - OK, horrendously lazy - penalty miss in the FA Cup semi-final against Everton at Wembley. We must await that reaction as he starts on the bench.

"Big night for Sir Alex Ferguson and Manchester United - Liverpool's dramatic draw against Arsenal at Anfield has presented them with the chance to re-assert their authority in the pursuit of the Premier League title. Old Trafford is subdued at present but surely we can expect a lively atmosphere tonight."

1930:Stevo's Predos:
Chelsea 3-0 Everton
Man Utd 3-1 Portsmouth

1928: Chelsea manager Guus Hiddink keeps faith the starting XI that beat Arsenal in Saturday's FA Cup semi-final, but future final opponents Everton make four changes, Lars Jacobsen, Joseph Yobo, Segundo Castillo and Jo replacing Tony Hibbert, Phil Jagielka, Marouane Fellaini and Louis Saha.

Kalou puts Chelsea form down to Hiddink

1926: But don't rule Chelsea out of the equation just yet - that's the message from their master manager Guus Hiddink right now. "The league is very serious for us. As long as it's possible for us, then we go on," said the Dutchman. Striker Salomon Kalou has praised Hiddink for the impact he's had on the club since arriving in February and we've even got video of a chat with Chelsea's Ivorian striker, so if that floats your boat, then fill yer boots.

Get involved on 606

From ChelseasPrivateOwner on 606: "This time last month I would have been furious with Malouda starting, but when I saw our starting line-up for tonight's game, Malouda's name brought a smile to my face! Don't let me down tonight son. There's always Kalou to take your place!"

1921: Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson makes nine changes to the side that lost their FA Cup semi-final to Everton on Sunday, with Nemanja Vidic and Anderson the only players keeping their place. Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Paul Scholes - on his 600th appearance for the club - are among those to return. Portsmouth make two changes, with Nadir Belhadj and Richard Hughes coming in for Younes Kaboul and the injured Niko Kranjcar.

1920: Chelsea v Everton line-ups
Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Alex, Terry, Ashley Cole, Ballack, Essien, Lampard, Drogba, Anelka, Malouda.
Subs: Hilario, Di Santo, Mikel, Kalou, Belletti, Mancienne, Mellis.
Everton: Howard, Jacobsen, Lescott, Yobo, Baines, Osman, Castillo, Neville, Pienaar, Jo, Cahill.
Subs: Nash, Hibbert, Jagielka, Saha, Vaughan, Rodwell, Gosling.
Referee: Mark Halsey (Lancashire)

1919: Manchester United v Portsmouth line-ups
Man Utd: Van der Sar, Neville, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Fletcher, Scholes, Anderson, Giggs, Ronaldo, Rooney.
Subs: Kuszczak, Berbatov, Carrick, Nani, Rafael Da Silva, O'Shea, Tevez.
Portsmouth: James, Johnson, Campbell, Distin, Hreidarsson, Davis, Mullins, Hughes, Belhadj, Nugent, Crouch.
Subs: Begovic, Pennant, Pamarot, Utaka, Cranie, Kanu, Basinas.
Referee: Peter Walton (Northamptonshire)

1918: Plenty to cheer you up, especially if you're a Manchester United fan. Level on points with Liverpool, they have two games in hand on the Reds - starting with lowly Portsmouth tonight. Five wins and a draw from their seven matches and the title will be staying at Old Trafford.

From Amrit in London, via text on 81111: "Isn't it astonishing that Arshavin scored four goals and still didn't win the game? Only in this league and this crazy season."

1913: I know what you're thinking. "Damn it, it's Stevo. Where's Caroline "Goals Galore" Cheese on a night like tonight?" I feel for you, really I do. I mean, last night I enjoyed the festivities with family members in a down-to-earth, homely Nottingham boozer, casually supping on a pint of the local brew. And tonight, I'm going to ruin any chance of there being a goal spree just by my very presence. It's tough being me. And it's tough being you. I'm sorry.

1910: I won't stop you from eulogising about Andrey today, but feel free to talk about United, Pompey, Chelsea and Everton, too. In fact, feel free to talk about whatever the blazes you want. Texts to 81111, and the debate is under way on 606. Standard.

1905: United team to play Pompey: Van der Sar, Neville, Evra, Vidic, Evans, Anderson, Giggs, Scholes, Fletcher, Ronaldo, Rooney.

1903: Welcome to Wednesday, the evening after the most astonishing night before. I hope you've caught your breath and stopped shaking. Tonight, Manchester United host Portsmouth and Chelsea entertain Everton. It's 0-0, we go again.

1900: Sometimes, sport gives you something so remarkable that in the deepest depths of your soul, you start to wonder whether it's actually happening, or whether you're merely involved in a dream so fantastical that every part of you is merely trying to believe it's real.

Last night, Andrey Arshavin gave football such a moment.
Liverpool 4-4 Arsenal

When I woke up this morning, I had to check that the Russian really had scored four goals against title-chasing Liverpool at Anfield, that I hadn't been tricked by my own sub-conscious.

Of course, lightning never strikes twice in such quick succession...
