Wednesday night rounded-off the weeks Premier League football action until next weekend now as the FA Cup will take over this weekend with the round of 16 being played. Tuesday and Wednesday night both held some wonderful Premier League action whilst some games on Wednesday night were forced to be postponed due to the appalling weather conditions; Everton v Crystal Palace and Manchester City v Sunderland were the postponed games. With these matches being postponed, it means these teams have a game in hand, and they could prove to be crucial later in the season.
Chelsea almost managed to take a three point lead at the top of the Premier League as they were 1-0 up against West Brom on Tuesday night with only 3 minutes remaining. However, that possible three point lead was reduced to only one point when The Baggies’ striker Victor Anichebe scored an equaliser for his team in the 87th minute, denying Chelsea the three points. Manchester City now have a glorious chance to take advantage with this game in hand against Sunderland as they could take first place when they play the postponed match; Man City play Chelsea in the FA Cup this weekend.
The most exciting Premier League game on Wednesday night saw an extremely late goal go in for Liverpool as they have kept their place in the top four positions and kept their title hopes alive. The final score was 3-2 to the Reds against Fulham and the latter even managed to take the lead twice. However, all of Fulham’s hard work defending was undone when Sascha Riether put in a late tackle on Daniel Sturridge, who had scored Liverpool’s first goal of the night, and conceded a penalty. Steven Gerrard buried the penalty as he usually does to give his team all three points.
Tottenham have kept themselves in contention for a possible Champions League or Europa League place with a dominant 4-0 Premier League triumph over Newcastle, who have found themselves falling down the league table. Elsewhere, West Ham triumphed over Norwich 2-0 to climb up the table to 11th, one place above Aston Villa who drew in a 0-0 result to Cardiff City. Arsenal were held at home to Manchester United on Wednesday evening in a frustrating 0-0 draw. The top of the table is extremely tight now, as is the bottom, with the race for the Premier League title being completely unpredictable.
