Gameweek 32 Summary
No ceasing to Cisse’s goals
Newcastle United converted their outside Champions League challenge spot into a reality with an impressive win at the Liberty Stadium. Cisse scored his sixth league goal in three matches as the Magpies humbled the Swans into submission.
Black Cats deflect blunt Spurs
Sunderland extended their unbeaten run to three matches after a goalless draw at home to Spurs. Conversely Tottenham have now only won one in their last four and risk losing out on a Champions League spot.
Captain America saves the day (again) for Fulham!
Two goals from Dempsey was enough for the Lilywhites to secure victory against Bolton. It was Fulham’s second consecutive league win and ended Bolton’s three match winning run.
Juan goal difference enough for Chelsea
A resilient Wigan felt hard done by against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Following Ivanovic’s controversial opening goal (that appeared to be offside), Diame scored an equaliser. But this wasn’t enough as Mata’s last minute strike denied Wigan a much needed point.
Liverpool “Herded” into stalemate at Anfield
Liverpool ended their three match losing streak with a damp squib draw against Aston Villa. Herd put Villa in front before Suarez grabbed a much needed equaliser for Liverpool. Despite the draw, Liverpool have only won one match in their last nine, whereas Villa too have only won one in their last nine.
Jelavic brace secures draw for tough Toffees
Everton extended their unbeaten run to three matches, courtesy of a brace of goals from Jelavic. Holt’s thirteenth league strike of the season contributed to Norwich’s tally and surely puts him in line for a shock England call up?
Fortune favours the brave at The Hawthorns
Three goals from West Brom ended their four match winless run in the Premier League. The defeat to Blackburn was their third in a row and re-plunges them back into the relegation mire.
“Crouch”-ing Tigers defeat weak Wolves
Crouch scored his second goal in three matches as Stoke added to Wolves’ misery, despite Kightly’s lone strike. They have now lost six matches in a row and face almost certain relegation.
Scholes in with the goals as United extend lead
Man United showed their true class by increasing lead at the top of the league to 9 points. However, QPR will feel hard done by with their early red card that consigned them to 10 men and inevitable defeat.
“One-Nil to the Arsenal” enough to extinguish City’s title hopes
City spectacularly failed in their quest of adding pressure to United following a late defeat to Arsenal. To add to their woes and buffoonery, Balotelli got himself sent off at the end for reckless behaviour. The 0-1 loss all but ends their title hopes (only one win in five) and means that United could wrap up the title well before the Manchester derby later this month.
