Premier League Results: Wednesday Matches

 Premier League Results: Wednesday Matches

18 goals were scored in another action packed English Premier League Matchday with the best viewing to be found at the White Hart Lane where a crowd of 36162‎ witnessed Tottenham’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool.

Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 Liverpool

Key clash of the Matchday 14 between Tottenham and Liverpool was joy to watch with Gareth Bale’s remarkable performance undoubtedly being the highlight of the game. Welshman’s energetic runs and dribbles were constantly creating havoc in the opposition’s defense. After running down the left wing and beating three Liverpool players Bale set up the first goal of the game for Aaron Lennon in the 7th minute. In the 16th minute the in-form winger scored himself with an excellent free-kick. Bale has got his name on the scoresheet again in the 72th minute after putting through his own goal. Tottenham could have scored more but Pepe Reina made a string of excellent saves to deny their attempts on goal. Unfortunately this time Luis Suarez’s efforts were not enough for Liverpool to level the game.

This is the second win in a row for André Villas-Boas’ side after three defeats. The result saw The Spurs lift to the fifth spot with 23 points and Liverpool drop to the 12th place with 16 points.

Chelsea 0 – 0 Fulham

Benitez’s side did not deliver the much-anticipated victory in the west London derby being held to a scoreless draw for the second time in a row. They made just three attempts on goal including two from goal-drought sufferer Torres. Although Chelsea were the better side in terms of possession they could not turn their advantage into goals without their main creative force Juan Mata. Petr Čech has demonstrated an excellent performance, hardly putting a foot wrong.

The fans continued booing the Spanish coach. For sure there is no chance of the trust building between the coach and the fans in such a hostile atmosphere. That is why Benitez enters probably the toughest seven months of his coaching career, despite his proverbial ‘thick-skin’. WBA defeat allowed Chelsea climbing to the third spot, but they continue falling behind the Manchester clubs in title race.

Manchester United 1 – 0 West Ham United

Manchester United made a flying start at the Old Trafford after Robin Van Persie’s shot deflected off West Ham’s defender and looped over Jaaskelainen in the 31st second of the game. Unfortunately after the bright start both teams played cautiously until the final whistle with West Ham almost scoring an equalizer at the death.

Wigan Athletic 0 – 2 Manchester City

Man City coach Roberto Mancini has made several curious changes to his squad for the match against Wigan, including controversial forward Balotelli who has not scored since March. Mancini has also substituted his second forward Agüero for the defender Aleksandar Kolarov in the 68th minute. And yet title holders half-heartedly secured the 2-0 victory at the DW Stadium thanks to goals from Balotelli and Millner. Man City have not lost in their 14 Premier League games of the season and have not conceded a goal in their last six games. The Citizens lie at the second spot, one point behind leading Man Utd and six points ahead of their closest rivals Chelsea.

Everton 1 – 1 Arsenal

The clash between two Premier League table neighbors turned out to be not as entertaining as it has been expected with just two goals scored. Arsenal’s Theo Walcott opened the scoring in the first minute of the game, while Fellaini drew level in the 25th minute. At the moment Arsenal occupy seventh spot in the table, one point behind the hosts.

Wayne Routledge netted double and Michu scored another one in the Swansea City’s 3-1 win over West Bromwich Albion. As has been anticipated WBA have not been able to extend their excellent run of form.
