Chelsea can't beat Reading and tie 2-2

Share |

Chelsea had a bad performance and helped Manchester United extend their lead at the top of the English Premiership to four points. Ferguson's team cruised to a 3-1 win over Wigan Athletic at Old Trafford while Chelsea were held 2-2 by Reading at Stamford Bridge.

The "Blues" lost ground on the leaders after a real struggle against Reading. African striker Didier Drogba twice put Chelsea ahead but Leroy Lita and an own goal from Michael Essien gave Reading a share of the spoils and left Chelsea four points off the pace.

Michael Ballack had a regular performance, which was not enough to lift his team over the rival.

Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho admitted that the draw was probably a fair result.

“We did enough to get the triumph because we scored two goals and could have scored more — I can’t complain about my footballers.

“For instance, the match at Wigan was easy but we made it hard for ourselves. Yes, I had reason to be unhappy with them then. But today, no, because Reading made it really hard for us.”
