Chelsea regains Premier League title
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 10 - 05 - 2010

Chelsea regained the Premier League title from Manchester United with a 8-0 victory over Wigan Sunday with Didier Drogba scoring three times.
Even though United finished the campaign with a 4-0 victory over Stoke at Old Trafford, the big celebrations were at Stamford Bridge where goals by Drogba, two by Nicolas Anelka and one each by Frank Lampard, Salomon Kalou and Ashley Cole left Chelsea champions by one point in manager Carlo Ancelotti's first season in English football.
It is Chelsea's third league title in six years – the others being under Jose Mourinho in 2005 and ‘06 – and the result means it prevented United becoming the first team to win the English title four years in a row.
Now Ancelotti hopes to complete Chelsea's first league and FA Cup double by beating Portsmouth in Saturday's final at Wembley.
Drogba finished the campaign as leading scorer with 29 goals, three more than longtime leader Wayne Rooney, who failed to hit the target for Man United against Stoke and limped off the field with an injury.
Arsenal finished third ahead of Tottenham with a 4-0 victory over a weakened Fulham side. Tottenham lost 4-2 at relegated Burnley and has to be satisfied with fourth place, its highest finish since placing third in 1990.
Another relegated side, Hull held Liverpool to a 0-0 draw.
Portsmouth lost 1-0 at Everton.
In Sunday's other games, Manchester City was held 1-1 at West Ham, Blackburn won 1-0 at Aston Villa, Bolton beat Birmingham 2-1 and Wolves edged Sunderland 2-1.
In the playoffs to decide the third team to gain promotion to the top flight, Peter Whittingham's 78th-minute free kick gave Cardiff a 1-0 victory at Leicester in the first leg.
In the other semifinal, Blackpool leads Nottingham Forest 2-1.
Inter forced to wait
Inter Milan will have to wait until the final weekend of the Serie A season to wrap up its fifth consecutive title, despite beating Chievo Verona 4-3 Sunday.
Francesco Totti kept AS Roma's hopes alive of overtaking Inter by scoring twice to help his team rally for a 2-1 win over Cagliari. That leaves Roma still two points behind Inter ahead of the final round.
Inter travels to play Siena, while Roma is away to Chievo next weekend.
AC Milan remains in the third Champions League place despite a 1-0 loss to Genoa, while Sampdoria drew 1-1 away to Palermo to stay fourth.
At the foot of the table, Atalanta lost 2-0 to Napoli and is relegated along with Siena and Livorno.
Also Sunday, it was; Bologna 1, Catania 1; Fiorentina 1, Siena 1; Juventus 2, Parma 3; Livorno 1, Lazio 2; Udinese 3, Bari 3.
