Chelsea 2-1 Porstmouth Match Goals and Highlights: 12/16/2009

Chelsea regained their three-point lead in the Premier League standings - but only after an unconvincing victory over Portsmouth. Nicolas Anelka side-footed Chelsea in the 23rd minute after good work from Alex as the home side dominated the first half. But Pompey, managed by former Blues boss Avram Grant, equalized through Frederic Piquionne's fierce finish and even had chances to go ahead. Frank Lampard saved the hosts' blushes with a 79th-minute penalty after Marc Wilson's lunge on Branislav Ivanovic. Pictures of the goal scorers below.

1-0 Nicolas Anelka 23"

1-1 Frederic Piquionne 51"

2-1 Frank Lampard 79" (penalty kick)
