me that with others losing points this was a must-win game." Chelsea

BERLIN -- Borussia Moenchengladbach completed its best first half of a season in 35 years by beating Mainz 1-0 Sunday in the Bundesligas last game before a four-week winter break. Marco Reus wore a special boot after breaking the little toe on his left foot last month and set up the only goal in the fifth minute with an incisive ball for Patrick Herrmann to score through Christian Wetklos legs. "Well go on and fight for every point," said Moenchengladbach coach Lucien Favre, whose side remains unbeaten at home. "Were taking every game as it comes." Moenchengladbach stays fourth and in touch with the league leaders, one point behind Borussia Dortmund and Schalke, and four behind Bayern Munich which tops the standings with 37 points. The season resumes Jan. 20. "Mainz was better," Favre said, and his coaching counterpart agreed. "It was a draw that we lost," said Thomas Tuchel, who was sent to the stands early in the second half for a disagreement with referee Peter Gagelmann. Gagelmann waved away Moenchengladbachs penalty appeals before the interval, when former Borussia player Eugen Polanski appeared to bring down Roman Neustaedter. Juan Arango should have made it 2-0 in the 67th when Wetklo denied the Venezuelan, before Tony Jantschke went close from the resulting corner. Reus limped off with an injury in the 83rd, holding his knee after a collision with Niko Bungert "It hurt a lot at the time, but it seems more or less OK now," Reus said. An examination Monday will reveal the full extent of any damage. Mainz defender Zdenek Pospech appeared to be briefly knocked unconscious after clashing heads with Arango in the 88th, but the Czech was able to see out the game. Earlier Sunday, Kaiserslautern and Hannover drew 1-1 as each side prolonged its winless streak to seven games in the league. "At least we got our effectiveness back," Hannover coach Mirko Slomka said. "We had one big chance and we took it." Mohammed Abdellaoue scored his ninth goal of the season for Hannover in the 13th when he capitalized on a mistake from Kaiserslautern defender Mathias Abel. Abel misjudged a hopeful ball forward from Sofian Chahed, allowing the grateful Abdellaoue to collect the loose ball and sweep it through the legs of Kevin Trapp. For all of Kaiserslauterns endeavour, Ron-Robert Zieler didnt have a save to make until Alexander Bugeras strong shot in the 65th. But Adam Nemec finally equalized three minutes later, when Christian Tiffert played the ball left to Olcay Sahan, who crossed for the Slovenians first goal of the season. Kaiserslautern striker Itay Shechter was sent off with three minutes remaining for kicking out at Manuel Schmiedebach. Kaiserslauterns last success in the Bundesliga was a 1-0 victory over Freiburg on Oct. 22, while Hannover hasnt won since beating Bayern Munich 2-1 on Oct. 23. "We played brilliantly, but the goals were missing," said Kaiserslautern coach Marco Kurz, whose side drops to the relegation playoff place. Hertha Berlin said Sunday that it had fired coach Markus Babbel after the 39-year-old fell out with the clubs sporting director. Bruce Irvin Super Bowl Jersey .

After a sloppy start that saw Jose Mourinhos team concede a goal just after kickoff, Chelsea recovered in the second half to close the gap to league leader Arsenal to four points. Michael Essiens poor back pass allowed Jay Rodriguez to open the scoring at Stamford Bridge after 13 seconds. Southampton held on until Garry Cahill levelled with a header from close range in the 56th. Terry then put Chelsea in front with a glancing header in the 62nd minute for his 34th Premier League goal before substitute Demba Ba put the game beyond reach. "It was important not to panic and keep the emotional balance," Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said. "We waited for halftime to change the game. The players were fantastic and it was difficult for Southampton. We spoke before the game that with others losing points this was a must-win game." Chelsea built its sixth home win from seven games on an an excellent second-half performance capped with goals from its centre-backs Cahill and Terry, and Bas first Premier League goal of the season.dddddddddddd Ba, who hit the post from the corner which led to Cahills equalizer, had replaced Essien at halftime. Chelsea found themselves behind almost immediately after Essien sent the ball over Cahill for Rodriguez to calmly slot home. Southampton keeper Artur Boruc then saved Oscars shot before James Ward-Prowse curled a free kick wide for the Saints as Essien was clearly outpaced and Southampton dominated in midfield. Things changed after halftime as Chelsea gradually took the upper hand and was rewarded when Juan Matas set-piece found Branislav Ivanovic, whose header was redirected by Ba onto the post before Cahill headed the ball in from the rebound. Terry then rose above defenders following a half-cleared corner to send Stamford Bridge into rapture and Ba finally added the third after converting a Ramires cross. "After we got the first goal it was fairly even sided," said Southampton manager Mauricio Pochettino. "We are unhappy but there were a number of decisions that did not go our way. The ones you dont see are perhaps more important. There was no doubt that the players will react positively. But lest we forget we were playing Chelsea." ' ' '
