    Chelsea look to tighten stranglehold on Premier League title race

    Having claimed the season's first major trophy, Chelsea will attempt to tighten their stranglehold on the Premier League title race when they visit West Ham United in mid-week. Chelsea beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Wembley on Sunday to lift the League Cup and they were given double cause for celebration by Manchester City's 2-1 defeat at Liverpool earlier in the day. Chelsea now lead second-place City by five points with a game in hand, leaving manager Jose Mourinho well placed to repeat the feat from his first season at the club, 10 years ago, when his side followed up success in the League Cup by romping to the title by a 12-point margin.

The leading British quartet will help select the venue each season for the next four years and Poulter has kicked things off by opting to play the three million pounds ($4.58 million) competition at his local course at Woburn from Oct. 8-11. "I am proud and delighted to be bringing the tournament to Woburn which is obviously a place that means a great deal to me," the Englishman said in statement on Wednesday. "We have all been keen to get more tournaments on British soil and in England in particular." It will be the 17th time that Woburn has hosted the tournament and the first since 2002 when Poulter was narrowly beaten to the title by his close friend Rose.
