Match Summary Pompey are the only one in the top five to win and return to the top of the table. However, Chelsea, with Walker playing his last game, have the better of the first half. Jones’ rising drive trumps Butler, but once Harris levels Pompey take charge. Harris nets Barlow’s centre to seal it.
