Chelsea and Everton draw 0-0

Chelsea may have blown their title hopes after drawing 0-0 with Everton at Stamford Bridge last night. With Manchester United winning 2-0 the Blues knew they needed to pick up the three points to keep up the pressure.

But Everton were not in an obliging mood and again underlined why they are one of most solid and hard-working teams in the division. In contrast, Chelsea looked jaded and struggled to create chances with Michael Essien and Frank Lampard coming closest with long-range efforts.

The Toffees even went close to stealing the three points but Brazilian striker Jo wasted a number of guilt edged chances in front of goal and Tim Cahill put a shot into the side netting late on. When a Didier Drogba shot hit the woodwork at the death the lights went on Chelsea's title chances.
