Chelsea and Manchester United both held their nerve to ensure the English Premier League football race goes to the last day of the season.
United beat Sunderland 1-0 just hours after leaders Chelsea beat Liverpool 2-0, leaving Sir Alex Ferguson's defending champions still a point behind Carlo Ancelotti's side.
Chelsea can win the title for the first time since 2006 if they beat Wigan at home this time next week.
But United will claim a record 19th English championship if Chelsea drop points and they beat Stoke at Old Trafford.
Chelsea were given a kickstart in Monday morning's match at Anfield by Liverpool's captain Steven Gerrard, whose poor back-pass presented Didier Drogba with the first scoring opportunity.
Fulham also best West Ham 3-2 at Craven Cottage.
