Premiership results 9-10 December 2006

Manchester United 3-1 Manchester City ( Wayne Rooney, Louis Saha, Cristiano Ronaldo/ Hatem Trabelsi)

This one was the big Manchester derby and the red half prevailed yesterday. City have only themselves to blame, with defensive errors responsible for all three goals. Trabelsi, Thomas Cook player of the month in November, pulled one back for City. Stuart Pearce’s boys need to work on their defence on their travels.

Liverpool 4-0 Fulham ( Steven Gerrard, Luis Garcia, Mark Gonzalez, Jamie Carragher)

Liverpool continued their excellent home form when they thrashed Fulham 4-0. Chris Coleman’s side lost the plot in about 20 after the second half started after keeping the hosts goalless in the first half. Rare one for Jamie too :D. The Reds now move to fourth in the table.

Portsmouth 2-0 Everton ( Matthew Taylor, Kanu)

Two goals which deserved to be on the winning side at the final whistle and so they were. Taylor sent in an audacious volley from 45 yards out to leave Tim Howard stunned. Kanu’s clinical left foot finish guaranteed them three points.

Tottenham 5-1 Charlton ( Dimitar Berbatov*2, Teemu Tainio, Jermaine Defoe, Steed Malbranque, Michael Dawson OG)

Charlton started off things well, but were two goals behind when Spurs struck a double blow just minutes after the half an hour mark. Dawson conceded an own goal to revive Charlton hopes, but Spurs put in a classy performance on the other side of the lemon break to equal United’s 5-1 battering of Fulham. Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, who has an excellent record against Spurs, was on the bench, and even when he came on, he had too much to do. Defoe’s goal was an absolute cracker, and Malbranque’s volley turned the game in the favour of Jol’s boys.

Bolton 4-0 West Ham ( Kevin Davies, Nicolas Anelka, Diouf)

More troubles for West Ham and Pardew.

Blackburn 1-3 Newcastle ( Morten Gamst Pedersen/ Martins*2, Steven Taylor)

Blackburn who lost to Charlton before coming into this one, were subdued by two Martins goals and one from Steven Taylor. Although Pedersen struck a fine goal, it was little more than false hope after Newcastle had gone 2-0 up in the first half.

Middlesbrough 1-1 Wigan ( Camara, Yakubu)

Some great saves from Schwarzer and a draw is a result Boro will certainly settle for.

Watford 0-0 Reading

Battle between two promoted teams, one in the top half currently and the other in relegation troubles- the game however goalless.

Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea ( Mathieu Flamini/ Michael Essien) 

Another derby and Essien’s late goal saved Mourinho’s side the Blues. Chelsea are now 8 behind Manchester United with a game in hand.  And Cashley Cole got booked 😀
