Chelsea back on top (EPL roundup)

After a slip last week against Wigan, it didn't take long for the Blues to regain the Premiership lead. Didier Drogba turned from goalscorer to playmaker and Chelsea handed Liverpool a 2-0 defeat, the Reds third loss of the season.

The reason Carlo Ancelotti's team isn't in a tie for first is because Manchester United laid a stinker at home against Sunderland, but managed a 2-2 draw thanks to Anton Ferdinand's (right) last-gasp own goal.

In other news: Portsmouth finally got some points with a 1-0 road win at Wolves, Hull didn't play Jozy but beat Wigan 2-1 and Arsenal put on a proud scoring display with a 6-2 win against Blackburn.

Watch for City v. Villa later today on ESPN.
