Sevilla moves into first place in La Liga

LONDON -- Manchester United's lead in the Premier League was cut to two points Sunday after it lost to West Ham 1-0 and Chelsea rallied past Everton 3-2. Nigel Reo-Coker scored in the 75th minute, giving Alan Curbishley a winning start as West Ham manager. Chelsea needed an 87th-minute goal from Didier Drogba to win. United leads the league with 44 points, two more than Chelsea. Liverpool is third with 31 points and Arsenal is fourth with 30. "We have got to show our mettle ourselves," Man United manager Alex Ferguson said. "That's the hallmark of champions and we've proved that many times it in the past. This team is young enough to be able to do that." Reo-Coker scored from close range after Marlon Harewood had played the ball back to him from the edge of the field. On Wednesday, Curbishley signed a 3{½-year contract at the club where he started his playing career, two days after Alan Pardew was fired. This was the first time Curbishley has beaten Manchester United as a manager. In the 15 years he managed Charlton, he tied twice and lost 12 times. Drogba scored with a bending ball that went over the head of U.S. goalkeeper Tim Howard and came just moments after he had hit the post. The goal came only six minutes after Frank Lampard had tied the score for the two-time defending champions. "When we were losing 1-0 and 2-1 it was difficult, but we did it," Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said. "The players had incredible character and they believed it until the last moment." Mikel Arteta gave Everton the lead with a 38th-minute penalty kick -- sending goalkeeper Hilario the wrong way -- after Chelsea defender Khalid Boulahrouz had brought down Victor Anichebe. Michael Ballack scored in the 49th with a curling free kick that bounced in off the post. Joseph Yobo again put Everton in the lead in the 64th, heading in a corner from Arteta that got a slight deflection off Ballack's head. Tom Huddlestone and Calum Davenport scored a goal each to give Tottenham a 2-1 win over Manchester City.

Italy
MILAN, Italy -- Inter Milan won its club-record ninth straight game in the Italian league, beating Messina 2-0. Marco Materazzi and Zlatan Ibrahimovic both scored for Inter, which leads the league with 42 points. Materazzi scored with a bicycle kick in the 49th minute and Ibrahimovic added the second 10 minutes later with a diagonal shot from just inside the penalty area. The Swede also hit the crossbar with a header in the 27th. Messina had two good chances, but Sergio Floccari missed the target from close range in the 33rd and Luigi Lavecchia hit the post in the 65th. Inter coach Roberto Mancini surpassed the record for successive victories held by former coaches Tony Cargnelli (1939-40), Helenio Herrera (1964-65) and Giovanni Trapattoni (1988-89).

Spain
MADRID, Spain -- Sevilla moved ahead of idle Barcelona and into first place in the Spanish league after beating Recreativo Huelva 3-1. Frederic Kanoute scored his 12th goal of the season after teammate Luis Fabiano had given Sevilla the lead and Jesus Vazquez had tied the score. Jesus Navas added the insurance goal for Sevilla, which won the UEFA Cup last season. Sevilla has 34 points and leads Barcelona by one. The defending champions lost to Internacional 1-0 earlier Sunday at the Club World Cup final in Japan.

France
PARIS -- Paris Saint-Germain was booed off the field and fans called for coach Guy Lacombe to resign after a 0-0 tie against visiting Nice in the French league. PSG has won only four games this season. It is without a league win at home since Oct. 28 and is in 15th place with 18 points -- two points clear of the relegation zone. About 2,000 officers patrolled the stadium, more than three weeks after a PSG fan was shot and killed by a plainclothes police officer following disturbances.

Netherlands
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands -- Ajax got three goals from Klaas Jan Huntelaar in its 3-1 win over Excelsior Rotterdam in the Dutch league. Huntelaar first scored with a solo effort in the 24th minute before heading in Tom de Mul's corner in the 48th. He completed the hat trick in the 74th by converting George Ogararu's cross. PSV Eindhoven, which beat Heracles Almelo 3-0 Friday, leads the league with 46 points, seven more than AZ Alkmaar. Ajax is third with 38 points. AZ beat FC Groningen 2-0. Gijs Luirink scored in the 26th and Danny Koevermans added the second from the penalty spot in the 40th.

Scotland
GLASGOW, Scotland -- Rangers scored a late goal to hold rival Celtic to a 1-1 tie in the Scottish Premier League. Brahim Hemdani scored the tying goal in the 88th minute for host Rangers, and Thomas Gravesen scored for Celtic with a volley in the 38th. Celtic leads the league with 48 points, followed by Aberdeen with 34 points and Rangers with 32.

Germany
BERLIN -- Werder Bremen is the Bundesliga's winter champion. Naldo scored with an 86th-minute free kick to give Bremen a 2-1 win over VfL Wolfsburg at the halfway point of the season -- and ahead of the league's five-week winter break. Bremen will remain in first place ahead of Schalke on goal difference until the league resumes on Jan. 26. Both teams have 36 points, followed by Bayern Munich with 33 and Stuttgart with 32. Bremen took the lead in the 17th minute on an acrobatic bicycle kick goal by Daniel Jensen, but Isaac Boakye tied the score in the 41st with a putback off a corner. Bayer Leverkusen beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 on Stefan Kiessling's 74th-minute winner.
