Sunday Premier League review: Suarez rescues point for Liverpool at Stamford Bridge
Chelsea were riding high at the top of the Premier League a few weeks ago, although the Blues are now three points behind Manchester United after Liverpool came from behind to claim an unlikely point on Sunday afternoon.
November 11th, 2012
Roberto Di Matteo’s team should have been home and dry by half-time, with John Terry heading Chelsea into the lead before Juan Mata was given a clear shot on goal although the Spaniard was unable to fire on target.
Liverpool were anonymous in the first half, although the Reds grew in confidence after the interval and a corner was flicked on by Jamie Carragher for Luis Suarez to head home.
Meanwhile, Manchester City came from behind to beat Tottenham Hotspur and keep pace with United, with Sergio Aguero cancelling out Steven Caulker’s header before Edin Dzeko reinforced his super sub status by firing home from close range.
Kevin Nolan enjoyed his return to St James’ Park by scoring the only goal of the game, with Sam Allardyce getting one over his former employers who dispensed with his services after just a few months.
