Premier League Results – April 11-12

13 Apr

Fernando Torres struck twice in a 4-0 Liverpool win over Blackburn.

Liverpool 4 (Torres 5, 33, Agger 83, N’Gog 90)
Blackburn 0

Fernando Torres tallied a first half brace and Daniel Agger and David N’Gog added late second half tallies as the Reds kept their push for the league title alive.  The win also gives them momentum going into Tuesday’s Champions League game at Chelsea.

Chelsea 4 (Ballack 40, Drogba 48, 63, Lampard 60 – pen)
Bolton 3 (O’Brien 70, Basham 74, Taylor 79)

Chelsea went up 4-0, but Bolton did not go quietly though, as they scored three goals in nine minutes and then had a chance to tie the game in the dying moments.

Middlesbrough 3 (Tuncay 4, Bates 29, King 88)
Hull City 1 (Manucho 10)

Boro is still in the bottom three, but this win could go a long way in boosting the squad’s confidence down the stretch as they try to avoid relegation.

Portsmouth 2 (Kaboul 32, Kranjar 63)
West Brom 2 (Greening 47, Brunt 61)

A draw didn’t do either team any favors as West Brom is still at the bottom of the table and Portsmouth is only four points from the bottom three.

Sunderland 1 (Jones 55)
Manchester United 2 (Scholes 19, Macheda 76)

Federico Macheda scored his second straight Premier League game-winner for the current league leaders. Without his strikes, the Red Devils would be four points back from Liverpool.

Tottenham 1 (Pavlyuchenko 64)
West Ham 0

With the win, Spurs move into the top half of the table. West Ham remains in seventh.

Wigan 1 (Mido 19)
Arsenal 4 (Walcott 60, Silvestre 71, Arshavin 90, Song 90)

Arsenal used a late second half surge to shock Wigan with four goals. The win puts the Gunners nine points clear of fifth-place Aston Villa and in good position for Champions League next season.

Stoke 1 (Faye 33)
Newcastle 1 (Carroll 81)

Sub Andy Carroll scored a late equalizer for Newcastle, giving new boss Alan Shearer his first point at the helm. Despite the draw, Newcastle still sits in the bottom three.

Aston Villa 3 (Carew 33, Milner 55, Barry 67 – pen)
Everton 3 (Felliani 19, Cahill 23, Pienaar 53)

Aston Villa came from both 2-0 down and 3-1 down to secure a valuable point. The draw keeps Villa one point ahead of Everton in the table.

Manchester City 1 (Ireland 28)
Fulham 3 (Dempsey 50, 83, Etuhu 59)

Man City put on a lackluster performance and couldn’t take advantage of being a goal up at the break. American Clint Dempsey led the charge for Fulham with a two-goal performance.
