Chelsea 2 Manchester United 1: Late penalty leaves title in the balance
Saturday 26 April 2008
Chelsea beat Manchester United 2-1 to pull level at the top of the Premier League on Saturday and keep alive their hopes of snatching the title from United's grasp.
Michael Ballack won a hugely entertaining and dramatic match for Chelsea with an 86th minute penalty after heading the home side ahead at the end of the first half.
Wayne Rooney equalised for the visitors when his 56th minute shot went in off the post after a careless backpass from Ricardo Carvalho.
With two matches to play both teams have 81 points, although United remain top because of a better goal difference.
