Chelsea warmed up for next week’s Champions League semi-final second leg against Barcelona with a derby tonic.

Nicolas Anelka put the Blues ahead with less than a minute gone from Ashley Cole’s cross, but Erik Nevland levelled with a fierce angled drive (4).

A frantic opening saw Florent Malouda lash Chelsea back ahead after a cross from Didier Drogba (10), who later turned in Anelka’s pass (53).  Chelsea v Fulham – Hiddink

Portsmouth 0 Arsenal 3

Striker Nicklas Bendtner scored twice as Arsenal clinched a Champions League place against 10-man Portsmouth.

The Gunners were gifted the lead by keeper David James who allowed Bendtner’s header to squirm in (13).

Bendtner converted a penalty after Sean Davis tripped Andrey Arshavin (41), and Carlos Vela hit a third (56) before Noe Pamarot was shown a straight red card for a professional foul on Arshavin.

Abdoulaye Faye’s header was cleared off the line for Stoke, while Junior Stanislas blazed over for the Hammers.
