Kljestan's Anderlecht remains alive

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Sacha Kljestan started and set up a goal in Anderlecht's 4-1 win over Gent on Wednesday night that kept it in contention for Belgium's Jupiler League title.

Kljestan fed teenager Romelu Lukaku for one of the Belgian star's two goals.

Lukaku is rumored to be headed to Chelsea on a $25 million transfer.

Anderlecht, the defending champion, won the regular-season title but has struggled since the start of the 10-game playoff series. The win over Gent was just its third in eight games.

With two games to go Anderlecht is three points behind Genk and Standard Liege.

Anderlecht travels to Standard -- which has seven wins and a tie in the playoffs -- on Saturday.
