LONDON Salomon Kalou scored late and Chelsea salvaged a 1-1 draw against Manchester United on Sunday, stretching the Blues' home unbeaten streak in the league to 85 games.
Defending champion United seemed set to end that four-year streak when Korean winger Park Ji-sung put the Red Devils ahead in the 18th minute at Stamford Bridge.
But Chelsea fought back in the second half, and Kalou headed home a free kick by John Obi Mikel in the 80th minute during a game in which seven United players were shown the yellow card to one for the Blues.
Despite the point, Chelsea failed to catch Arsenal at the top of the Premier League standings. The Gunners have 12 from five games after winning 3-1 at Bolton on Saturday. Chelsea and Liverpool both have 11 points, with Chelsea ahead on goal difference. Liverpool was held to a scoreless draw at home by Stoke on Saturday.
Manchester City put six goals past England goalkeeper David James in a shutout victory over Portsmouth, with Jo, Richard Dunne, Robinho, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Ched Evans and Gelson Fernandes scoring.
Tottenham remained last with only two points after a 0-0 draw at home to Wigan. In Sunday's other games, Hull and Everton drew 2-2 and Aston Villa won 2-1 at neighbor West Bromwich Albion.
ROME Inter Milan stayed atop the Italian league with a 3-1 victory at Torino and Juventus remained second but even on points after a 1-0 victory over Cagliari.
Champion for the past three seasons, Inter was helped by an own-goal by Amantino Mancini and scores from Maicon and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Amauri got his second goal in two games for Juventus, but goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon went off at halftime with an apparent thigh problem.
FRANKFURT, Germany Hamburger SV squandered a chance to regain the Bundesliga lead by losing 3-0 at Wolfsburg.
Martin Jol's team came into the round topping the standings for the first time in nine years. But Wolfsburg got three goals within 13 minutes when Ashkan Dejagah (15th), Alexander Madlung (23rd) and Grafite (28th) scored.
The defeat leaves Hamburg in fourth place with 10 points, one behind leader Schalke.
