Chelsea top league but still unsettled



Berekum Chelsea have snuck to the top of the Ghana Premier League table after winning in the Brong Ahafo Region. They beat Tema Youth 2-1.

Their title rivals - Asante Kotoko and Medeama - both dropped points as goals from mainstays Owusu Jackson and Obed Owusu weer scored either side of Moses Odjer's goal to seal the deal for the Blues.

With twenty-seven goals, Berekum Chelsea have also scored the second-lowest number of goals of the top five teams on the log - only Medeama.

Chelsea have thus suddenly opened a three-point lead at the top with Kotoko second and Medeama third.

Favorable results in the five more matches left could see Chelsea win a second title in their history after being just shy of the top of the table for most parts of this season.

This is also the first time this season the Blues are on top of the table and the next three games will be decisive. The Blues play a resurgent Hearts of Oak in Accra this coming weekend before playing crunching tie against Medeama.
