Chelsea FC were given a hard time by Portsmouth at Fratton Park on Tuesday afternoon, but the team of coach José Mourinho eventually grabbed all three points, courtesy to, among other players, Arjen Robben.20, 210 home fans saw Portsmouth have 70% possession of the ball in their fight against the Premiership leaders. But their hopes of pulling off a surprise result were shattered ten minutes from final time by Arjen Robben. Lampard picked out the former PSV player and his shot from the right side of the box took a slight deflection; 0-1. Robben was ecstatic after he had broken the deadlock and took off his shirt, for which he was booked. He was immediately taken off by his coach José Mourinho and Joe Cole took his place. The substitution paid off well, for Cole wrapped up things in injury time; 0-2 Manchester United kept up the pressure by beating Aston Villa 0-1. Ryan Giggs struck the only goal of the night for the Mancunians who have now collected twenty-two points from their last eight matches. Third place Everton suffered their first defeat in eight league games. When the Toffees were reduced to ten men, Charlton Athletics scored two late goals; 2-0. Former PSV winger Dennis Rommedahl was given a place in the Charlton starting line-up, but the Dane could not find the net.Runners-up Arsenal will play Newcastle on Wednesday afternoon.
