Updated: November 13, 2012

Sunday’s English Premier League fixtures proved crucial for top-of-the-table racers Manchester City and Chelsea as both avoided losses that could have hampered their rise. West Ham continued their rise in the league’s top 10 after coming out with a win.


Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool


Chelsea failed to gain home victory at Stamford Bridge against Liverpool, as their match ended in a draw. Captain John Terry, returning from his four-match ban, scored the header for the Blues. He was later stretchered out of the pitch due to a knee injury.

Luis Suarez continued him superb goal-scoring form as he scored for Liverpool on the 73rd minute. The visitors endured compelling chances from Oscar and Juan Mata, as they were visibly lacklustre apart from their Uruguayan hitman.


Manchester City 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur


Manchester City has come closer to knocking on Manchester United’s first-place position in the league table after gaining three points from a home win against Tottenham Hotspur. The Spurs initially led the match after Steven Caulker headed towards goal on the first half.

The second half saw a turnaround for City, as Sergio Aguero scored an equalizer on the 65th minute. Edin Dzeko’s entry as a substitute proved an important move for the league titleholders, as the Bosnian hitman sealed victory for them through a heroic 88th-minute goal.


Newcastle United 0-1 West Ham


West Ham’s stay in the top 10 continued with another rise after gaining victory against hosts Newcastle United. The Magpies failed to score goals following a lacklustre showing and an invalidated Demba Ba header effort.

The Hammers took opportunity of Newcastle’s poor performance as Kevin Nolan rushed to score the lone goal of the match. They endured blunt attempts from Shola Ameobi and Papiss Cisse, with both having failed to inspire their side’s attack.
