Chelsea briefly closed the gap on leaders Arsenal with a barely deserved 2-0 victory at Bolton in the day's early kick-off but the Gunners restored their advantage less than three hours later with a 2-0 win of their own at Blackburn.
 


Bolton dominated the first half but failed to score and they were made to pay with 19 minutes to go when John Terry volleyed home at the far post, with Damien Duff making the game safe for Chelsea.

After a goalless first half at Ewood Park Arsenal should have been feeling the pressure but with Thierry Henry in their side they are always supremely confident and it was the Frenchman who came up with the goods in the 57th minute.Henry, the Premiership's leading scorer this season, curled home a 25-yard free-kick.
The striker had already seen a first-half 'goal' disallowed when goalkeeper Brad Friedel rolled the ball out in front of him and Henry nipped in to slide it into an empty net only for referee Alan Wiley to rule it out.Gilberto's shot was half-saved by Freidel onto a post but when it rebounded Robert Pires was on hand to turn it home with three minutes remaining.

Birmingham missed the chance to go fourth after losing 1-0 to under-fire Leicester, who in turn rose out of the bottom three.The Foxes have endured a torrid couple of weeks in the wake of the La Manga sex-assault case but Les Ferdinand gave the club something to smile about when he leapt onto Muzzy Izzet's knock-back to score in the 53rd minute.

That meant Charlton overtook Blues and Newcastle to move into the last Champions League place after a 1-0 victory over Carling Cup winners Middlesbrough thanks to Matt Holland's long-range strike in the 25th-minute.Boro had earlier hit the post through Bolo Zenden, the culmination of a flowing moved involving Juninho and Joseph Desire-Job in the 14th minute.

Leeds' woes at the bottom of the table worsened as they went down 2-0 at Fulham after goals from Sean Davis (71) and Luis Boa Morte (83).Davis linked with Steed Malbranque and when the ball was returned to him he shot past goalkeeper Paul Robinson, who had earlier made a good double save to deny Mark Pembridge and Davis.Boa Morte then headed in Zat Knight's drilled cross to clinch victory.

Wayne Rooney scored the only goal of the game as Everton increased the pressure on Portsmouth, who slipped back into the bottom three after a 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park.Pompey defender Linvoy Primus lost the ball to Tomasz Radzinski and he passed to Rooney who drilled past Shaka Hislop 12 minutes from the end.
