6:39 am on 21 February 2010

Chelsea's taken advantage of Manchester United's slip-up at Everton to go four points clear of the champions at the top of English football's Premier League table with a 2-0 win at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Earlier Everton beat Manchester United 3-1 at Goodison Park with two goals in the final 14 minutes after winning only one of their previous 29 league games against them and losing 13 of the last 17 at Goodison.

Third-placed Arsenal closed the gap on United to two points with their 2-0 win over Sunderland in London where West Ham United pulled away from the relegation zone and left Hull City perilously close to it with a 3-0 win at Upton Park.
