Manchester lost the title

Chelsea FC retained the Premier League title when they defeated second-placed Manchester United 3-0 at Stamford Bridge yesterday.

Goals from William Gallas, Joe Cole and Ricardo Carvalho sealed a second successive title for Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, and United's bad luck was complete when England striker Wayne Rooney was carried off on a stretcher with a foot injury.

It's important to say that Manchester United and Liverpool have 79 points to Chelsea's 91, although United is still favourite to finish second as it has an extra game.

Wayne Rooney's foot injury, which will be scanned today, cast a shadow over England's World Cup hopes.
