Chelsea needed to win to keep the title race alive, but Gilberto Silva scored from a penalty kick in the 43rd minute after midfielder Julio Baptista was brought down by Khalid Boulahrouz. The Chelsea defender was then sent off.

Michael Essien leveled in the 70th minute for Chelsea, beating Arsenal defender William Gallas with a glancing header that got past goalkeeper Jens Lehmann.

Chelsea outplayed Arsenal in the second half, and had several chances to win the match.

Chelsea had been trying to win its third straight Premier League title. The last club to do that was Manchester United from 1999-2001.
