Chelsea 1-0 Reading

Jan 31, 2008

Michael Ballack’s first-half header helped Chelsea keep in touch with the leaders as Reading suffered their fifth successive Premier League defeat.

Ballack headed in Paulo Ferreira’s right-wing cross in the 32nd minute as the Blues dominated the first half.

They were unable to score again in a nervy second half while Reading failed to make the most of several set-pieces.

The result meant Chelsea equalled a club record of nine successive wins in all competitions set in 2005.
