Rampant Blues boost title hopes

Published Add your comment

Chelsea cut Manchester United's lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League to one point with an impressive 5-0 hammering of crisis club Portsmouth at Fratton Park.

A David James howler allowed Didier Drogba to tap into an empty net for Chelsea's opener before Florent Malouda grabbed two second-half goals in 10 minutes to make it 3-0.

Drogba's neat finish and Lampard's stoppage-time goal sealed the win against a Portsmouth side now one step closer to almost certain relegation.
