Chelsea back on top of EPL

7:46 am on 10 November 2008

Chelsea have returned to the top of the English Premier football League with a 2-nil victory over Blackburn Rovers at a rain-drenched Ewood Park.

A torrential downpour made conditions almost unplayable in the first half but Chelsea adapted far better and took the points with a double from Nicolas Anelka to continue their 100 percent away record in the league.

Chelsea move above Liverpool on goal difference.... both clubs have 29 points from 12 games... Arsenal are third with 23 points.

Tottenham's golden runs continues after beating Manchester City 2-1.... Middlesbrough beat Aston Villa 2-1 and Fulham beat Newcastle 2-1.
