Chelsea win over Bolton 2-0
The goals were scored by England internationals John Terry and Frank Lampard, and now Chelsea is nine points clear of Manchester United, who were surprisingly held to a goalless home draw by Sunderland on Friday.
In fact, the Blues could secure the title at Stamford Bridge on Monday by beating Everton if United fail to win at Tottenham Hotspur earlier in the day.
According to the Premier League classification, Chelsea have 85 points, United 76 and Liverpool, who visit Blackburn Rovers on Sunday, are third on 70. Tottenham have 61 with Arsenal on 57 after their 3-1 win at home against West Bromwich Albion. Blackburn have 54.
About the match, Chelsea went ahead in the 44th minute when Lampard swung in a free kick and Didier Drogba and John Terry rose unmarked together to meet it, the English defender claiming the final touch.
Is fair to say that Lampard doubled the lead on the hour from close range to set a Premier League record of 15 goals from midfield and the champions cruised home.
