Premier League weekend scores and review
It was a fantastic weekend of Premier League football, with lots of goals being scored and the highlight match took place at Eastlands where Manchester City’s 100% home record ended at the hands of Sunderland.
April 1st, 2012
City were 3-1 down against the Black Cats before Mario Balotelli and David Pizarro helped rescue a point for Roberto Mancini’s team, with the former having equalised from the penalty spot earlier in the game.
Meanwhile, Arsenal’s grip on a Champions League spot loosened a little after the Gunners lost 2-1 at QPR, with Tottenham’s 3-1 win over Swansea drawing them level with their north London rivals.
Both teams have a five point cushion on Chelsea despite the Blues’ impressive 4-2 win at Villa Park which saw Branislav Ivanovic score twice and Fernando Torres hit the back of the net for his team.
Villa are now anxiously looking over their shoulders considering that Bolton, QPR and Wigan all won on Saturday and it’s getting tight at the bottom of the Premier League.
Owen Coyle’s team continued their recent good form by winning 3-2 at Molineux and the writing now looks to be on the wall for Wolves.
Wigan won only their second home match of the season when defeating Stoke City 2-0 and only goal difference is now keeping them in the bottom three.
Newcastle United were a surprisingly big price to beat Liverpool on Sunday and ninety minutes later the Tyneside club were celebrating a 15th Premier League win of the season which takes them back level on points with Chelsea.
Clint Dempsey helped Fulham to a 2-1 win against Norwich City, while Everton were too strong for West Bromwich Albion, winning by a 2-0 scoreline.
