Chelsea 2 - 1 Tottenham
01 : 24 PM - 01/05/2011

London, May 1 (BNA) -- Controversial goals from Frank Lampard and Salomon Kalou, who struck in the last minute, kept alive Chelsea's hopes of catching leaders Manchester United, BBC reported.

Sandro gave Tottenham the lead when he fired an unstoppable half-volley past Petr Cech from 25 yards on 19 minutes.

When Heurelho Gomes spilled Lampard's 45th-minute shot he scrambled back and appeared to stop it from crossing the line, but the goal was given.

And Kalou looked offside as he bundled home Didier Drogba's shot late on.

Carlo Ancelotti's men will not care one bit about the manner of their goals as the win means they cut United's Premier League lead to three points, with the leaders playing at Arsenal on Sunday.

Chelsea and United then come face to face at Old Trafford next weekend in a game that will go a long way to deciding the outcome of the title.
