Man City holds Chelsea to draw

London:

David James made a stunning, one-handed save in injury time as Manchester City - the only team to beat Chelsea in the league - held out for a 0-0 draw with the Blues at Stamford Bridge last night. The result meant that Jose Mourinho's men, expected to stay 11 points clear in the title race, now only leads Manchester United by nine. In yesterday's other game, Marcus Bent scored an equalizer in the second minute of injury time to break Southampton hearts as fourth-place Everton captured a 2-2 draw at St. Mary's. James, who has lost his place on the England starting lineup to Tottenham's Paul Robinson, had already kept Chelsea at bay by blocking a powerful Frank Lampard free kick with his leg. When the ball fell to Lampard in injury time, it seemed only one result was likely but James acrobatically dived to his right to make a one-handed stop and Chelsea unexpectedly dropped two points. Chelsea now has 65 points, followed by Manchester United with 56 and defending champion Arsenal with 54. (AP)
