Liverpool Steal Win Away At Everton Whilst Chelsea Skip 5 Clear

Last nights EPL action saw three famous derby matches play out; the Merseyside derby between Everton v Liverpool, Arsenal v Chelsea in the battle of London and Wolverhampton v Birmingham. Liverpool scrapped an ever important win against their nearest rivals whilst Chelsea convincingly won the battle of London as Birmingham edged out rivals Wolves in the Midlands derby.

Everton v Liverpool (0-2)

The scoreline somewhat flattered the Reds who were second best for much of the game, indebted to Jose Reina for an excellent double save to preserve a clean sheet whilst the score was at 1-0. Nevertheless, Rafa Benitez’s side move into fifth place in the league, with victory helping to ease the pressure on the beleaguered manager’s shoulders.
The opener came after 12 minutes, Javier Mascherano’s effort taking a hefty deflection off Yobo’s outstretched boot, before Kuyt pounced from close range with 10 minutes remaining to seal all three points for Liverpool. Despite an encouraging Everton performance, the result capped eight days to forget for the Toffees, during which they suffered three defeats and their plans for a new stadium were forced to be shelved.

Arsenal v Chelsea (0-3)

Didier Drogba scored a brace as Chelsea went five points clear at the top of the table, with a 3-0 win over London rivals Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. Defeat for Arsenal served as a major blow to their title hopes with Arsene Wenger’s side now 11 points adrift of the leaders, although they do have a game in hand.

Drogba bagged the first with a sublime finish before Thomas Vermaelen put past his own keeper to put the visitors in a commanding position going into the interval. The Ivorian striker added a third, a superbly-taken free-kick, with four minutes remaining, as Chelsea affirmed their superiority over their London rivals. Arsenal enjoyed large spells of possession but failed to capitalise and ultimately had no answer to Chelsea’s lethal touch in front of goals.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Birmingham (0-1)

Lee Bowyer’s early strike was enough for Birmingham to clinch a slender 1-0 victory over Wolves in the battle of the Midlands played out at the Molineux. The Blues win means that they now remain unbeaten in their previous eight league encounters against Wanderers, whilst Wolves have yet to attain a clean sheet at home following their return to Premier League action.

Bowyer put the visitors in the lead in just the third minute with an exquisite chipped finish to find the top corner of Marcus Hahnemann’s far post from the edge of the penalty area. Sebastian Larsson was at his creative best down the right flank for Birmingham and an incisive run from Christian Benitez enabled the midfielder to clip the ball over to Bowyer, whose deft finish belied his otherwise combative play.
