Chelsea Still Kicking?

Chelsea's 1-0 win at Goodison Park today over Everton kept their slim Premier League title hopes alive. Michael Essien's goal four minutes from halftime accounted for the game's only tally. On the flip side, it moves Liverpool one step closer to locking up the fourth and final Champions League slot over Everton. Everton will now look to hold onto fifth and the guaranteed UEFA Cup slot hat comes with it.

If Chelsea are to claim the title, they still need to win out, which would include a victory over Manchester United on April 23rd, and have ManU lose of of their three other games. If that's to happen, Saturday's match away to Blackburn seems like the most likely candidate, albeit still a long shot.
