[ENGLAND] Chelsea moved closer toward regaining the Premier League title but the 1-0 win over Bolton Wanderers wasn't the "easy" game Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson insisted it would be. The Blues escaped two possible penalty kick calls against them to extend their lead over Man. United to four points with four games to play.

Didier Drogba stopped Matt Taylor’s free kick with his fist, and John Terry blocked Chung Yong Lee’s cross with what appeared to his left arm, but neither was called a penalty.

“There were two stonewall penalties out there," said Bolton manager Owen Coyle. "I know Drogba is a world-class player, but Drogba could play world-class volleyball for anybody on that evidence."

(Terry insisted after the game he blocked the ball with his chest.)

The lone goal was scored by Frenchman Nicolas Anelka, who has played in the shadow of Drogba all season and was reported to be unhappy with his diminished role.
