Michael Essien grabbed the player of the match as Chelsea defeated Birmingham to set an English record for unbeaten league matches at home for 64. Jose Mourinho's men were given a scare when Mikael Forsell score the first goal to put Birmingham in front however, Claudio Pizzaro found the net to get a draw and that was the first goal on his debut as well as Florent Malouda.
Mourinho's record is even more impressive. He has gone 99 home league games without a defeat, his last being a 3-2 reverse while at Porto at the hands of Beira Mar in 2002. The win over Portsmouth for the next match will record his personal record and hopefully stated that Portsmouth won't dissapoint him.
Chelsea currently get 3 points from the match and stand in 3rd position of the league and Manchester United dissapointed their fan after draw with Reading at Old Traford.
