Can Chelsea Overhaul

Manchester United

With United playing at lunch time they again extended their lead over Chelsea to nine points  smashed four past Bolton for the second time this season to triumph 4-1 at Old Trafford. Both Park Ji-Sung and Wayne Rooney scored twice as Sir Alex Ferguson's men surged to a victory which leaves them requiring only18 points from their last eight games to bring the title back home, and end a four-year title drought.

But the victory, was earned by the brilliant winger, Cristiano Ronaldo who was the star of the show. Bolton got their goal from the spot in the dying minutes.

Chelsea kept the heat on the leaders Manchester United at the top of the Barclays Premiership with a comfortable blitz 3-0 on struggling Sheffield United at Stamford Bridge with goals from Andriy Shevchenko, Salomon Kalou and substitute Michael Ballack. Sheff Utd were also hit by the loss of striker Rob Hulse, who was whipped to hospital with a suspected broken leg as well as the three goals.

Now we are down to the last 8 games which Chelsea cannot afford to drop any points, still trailing those important six points with only 24 left to earn.

Now both teams have important replays on Monday evening in the F.A. Cup, keeping alive triples for both teams.
