Sunday Premier League scores: Manchester United slip up against Toffees
The Premier League title race is officially wide open after Manchester United conceded two late goals against Everton to draw 4-4 at Old Trafford.
April 22nd, 2012
It was an incredible contest between the two north-west clubs, with Nikica Jelavic opening the scoring for the Toffees before Wayne Rooney restored parity just before half-time.
The Red Devils started to move through the gears in the second half, with goals from Danny Welbeck and Nani putting them 3-1 ahead and their two-goal advantage was restored through Rooney after Marouane Fellaini had pulled a goal back for the visitors.
With the home supporters in a celebratory mood, Everton rallied once again and Jelavic grabbed his second of the afternoon to set up a grandstand finish, with Steven Pienaar scoring an equaliser moments later.
It meant that Manchester City could reduce the gap to three points and Roberto Mancini’s side managed a 2-0 victory at Molineux, with Sergio Aguero opening the scoring for the visitors before Samir Nasri made sure of the points with ten minutes left.
Wolves are relegated from the Premier League as a result of that defeat, although they threatened to come back into the match at 1-0 down and City were made to defend well.
The third Premier League match of the afternoon saw Roy Hodgson enjoy a happy return to Anfield as West Brom claimed a 1-0 victory thanks to Peter Odemwingie. It means that Liverpool have won just 5 of their 17 games at Anfield this term.
