Premiership round-up (18-19/11/06)

Premiership round-up (18-19/11/06)

Pompey secured a last gasp win over Watford in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others…

Saturday 18/11/06
Arsenal 1-1 Newcastle
Kieron Dyer (30) gave Newcastle the lead before an Arsenal onslaught finally saw Thierry Henry (70) equalise.

Chelsea 1-0 West Ham
A rare start and even rarer goal from Geremi (22) gave Chelsea a narrow victory over their London neighbours.

Everton 1-0 Bolton
Mikel Arteta's (60) thunderbolt gave Everton victory over a Bolton side struggling for points in recent weeks.

Man City 3-1 Fulham
City did what Pompey so frustratingly couldn't do a week earlier, broke down a Fulham side and added further goals in Saturday's lunchtime LIVE SKY Sports game! Bernardo Corradi's double (12 &32) was added to by Joey Barton (45) before a Fulham consolation through Collins John (62)

Middlesbrough 0-0 Liverpool
The LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus game ended in stalemate.

Reading 2-0 Charlton
Seol Ki-Hyeon (18) put reading ahead before Kevin Doyle (72) wrapped up the win to see Les Reed get off to a losing start in his Charlton managerial career.

Sheff Utd 1-2 Man Utd
Keith Gillespie (13) netted against his former side to give Sheff United an early lead before a brace from Wayne Rooney (30 & 75) retained United's lead at the top of the Premiership.

Sunday 19/11/06
Blackburn 1-1 Tottenham
The afternoon LIVE SKY Sports match saw Blackburn take the lead through a stunning Tugay (23) strike before the man was sent off (60) as Spurs were awarded a penalty. Jermain Defoe (62) despatched the spot kick to level. Hossam Ghaly (90) also saw red for Spurs.

Wigan 0-0 Aston Villa
Neither side could make the breakthrough in the early LIVE SKY Sports encounter.

We're top of a very tight bunch & long may we stay there. Be interesting to see us after New years day. If we're still in the top 8 we'll being bl00dy well.

After one third of the season is over and we are holding down 3rd spot. That in itself is remarkable. I know we will all take a top 10 finish come May, and that where we currently sit is probably the last time we sit there. We probably are as good as any behind us bar Arsenal and Liverpool, so who knows - 5th or 6th is a real possibility.

It's fair to say that results generally went our way this weekend. Newcy's are so inconsistent we might be back to 3rd come Sunday afternoon, we wont get anything at Liverpool so i think we should rest some of the injured players to make them available for the following home game against Villa that i think will be our crunch match

We have been to Anfield with weaker sides against better opposition and come away witha draw (FA Cup) but we probably won't get anything this time it is true to say.

Pompey at Crawley called off

Pompey WILL NOT climb into the top 3 this weekend - whatever Carlisle do - as the game at Crawley has been called off.

Lalkovic heads to Ross County

In a somewhat odd move - admittedly he's not been involved that much - Pompey's former Chelsea & Walsall winger Milan Lalkovic has joined Ross County on loan.

On this day in history...21st January

A look back at this day in history, and what was happening with Pompey courtesy of our sister site PompeyRama, 21st January.

Crawley in doubt

Pompey have the chance to move into the automatic promotion places - if we beat Crawley and Carlisle fail to win - but the elements might rob us of this possibility?
