Chelsea and United draw

5:43 am on 22 September 2008

A late goal by substitute Salomon Kalou earned Chelsea a 1-all draw with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, as the English Premier League's big two cancelled each other out.

Kalou, who came on in the 74th minute, headed home six minutes later after Park Ji-sung's 18th-minute opener.

The draw takes Chelsea level with Liverpool on 11 points, one behind leaders Arsenal who beat Bolton Wanderers 3-1 away yesterday, while United have 5 points, but have played a game less than the others.

Aston Villa won 2-1 at West Bromwich Albion to move to fourth on 10 points..... Manchester City moved to 5th with a 6-nil victory over Portsmouth... Hull and Everton drew 2-all... and Tottenham stay bottom after a nil-all draw with Wigan.
