Premier League Weekender – Manchester United out in front by 9 Points
In yesterday’s Premier League
games Tottenham won 1-0 at the Hawthorns against West Brom
and Manchester City were held to a 2-2 draw with Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium
The game between Spurs and the Baggies was a close encounter until the game swung in the visitors favour in the 48th minute. On-loan Baggies defender Goran Popov
was dismissed for apparently spitting at Spurs full-back Kyle Walker
The only goal of the game came in the 67th minute. Gareth Bale
struck a fantastic swerving effort from just outside the edge of the penalty area that thundered past Ben Foster in the West Brom goal.
The three points put Spurs just a point behind third place Chelsea
and three points clear of the chasing pact.
Elsewhere, Manchester City
took the lead on 23 minutes against Liverpool, through an Edin Dzeko
strike. The Reds were back on level terms six minutes later through a superb strike from former-City ace Daniel Sturridge
took the lead in the 73rd minute through a superb volley from Steven Gerrard
from 25 yards out. City equalised in the 78th minute. Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina had a rush of blood and ran out of his goal, only for City striker Sergio Aguero
to nip in and score brilliantly from an acute angle.
The draw leaves Manchester City
nine points behind arch-rivals Manchester United
at the top of the Premier League table.
