Blackburm and Aston Villa played out a dull 1-1 draw leaving both clubs still fighting for the Premier League status, right at the edge of the drop zone.
Manchester City were hugely wasteful at home to a hapless Bolton team that really had no chance from the opening whistle. Gael Clichy scored his first goal for the club and just the second Premier League goal of his career. Their 2-0 win sees them move 5 points clear at the top with Tottenham hosting Manchester United tomorrow.
Loanee Drenthe scored again for Everton but new signing Bobby Zamora equalised shortly after the opener, with both sides earning a point. QPR’s goal difference is all that is keeping them out of the relegation zone whereas Everton continue their surge up the ladder.
Stoke’s quest for a second consecutive EUROPA berth added momentum with a 1-0 win at home to Norwich. Stoke sit level with Fulham in 8th, just three points behind Liverpool.
West Bromwich Albion condemned Chelsea to near rock bottom as they fall further behind Arsenal in the race for Champions League positions. McAuley’s late goal the only of the match.
Swansea knocked off Championship bound Wigan 2-0 at the DW. Wigan have spent the majority of the last decade in the top flight but have finally ran out of steam.
