Premiership round-up (23/12/06)

Pompey came from behind to beat Sheffield United 3-1 in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others.

Saturday, 23/12/06
Arsenal 6-2 Blackburn
Arsenal ran riot this weekend as they hit six! Blackburn took an early lead through a penalty from Shabani Nonda (3) only for Arsenal to storm back in a blaze of glory thanks to goals from Gilberto Silva (10), Alexander Hleb (23) and an Emmanuel Adebayor (27) penalty. Noda (69) again reduced the deficit only for three further late Gunners goals from Robin Van Persie (85 & 88) and Mathieu Flamini (90) to secure a resounding victory.

Aston Villa 0-3 Man Utd
Manchester United took a while to open the scoring but after they did through Cristiano Ronaldo (58) they went on to a comfortably victory thanks to Paul Scholes (64), said to be another rival to Matty Taylor for Goal of the Month and a second from Ronaldo (85).

Fulham 0-0 West Ham
The lunchtime LIVE SKY Sports match saw honours ending even, Paul Konchesky (85) saw red late on though.

Liverpool 2-0 Watford
Now that he is starting to find his feet at Liverpool Craig Bellamy (47) can't stop scoring, Xabi Alonso (88) secured Liverpool victory against a hard working Watford side, but a side destined from relegation.

Man City 0-2 Bolton
Returning to City for the first time since his departure Nicolas Anelka had a field day scoring twice (8 & 23) as Bolton won again. Joey Barton (87) saw red late on.

Middlesbrough 2-0 Charlton
The relegation battle saw yet another nail put into Charlton and Les Reed's coffins. Yakubu (29) put Boro ahead before victory was confirmed by Julio Arca's (52) first goal for the club.

Newcastle 3-1 Tottenham
A first half goal fest at St James' Park settled matters. Kieran Dyer (3) and Obafemi Martins (7) had Newcastle two up before Danny Murphy (15) pulled one back. Scott Parker (34) added Newcastle`s third.

Reading 0-2 Everton
Reading suffered a second successive home defeat as Andy Johnson (14) found the net for the first time in 13 games. James McFadden (47) added a second in the second half.

Wigan 2-3 Chelsea
Wigan fought back from two goals down against Champions Chelsea but still lost due to an injury time winner in the evening LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus match. Frank Lampard (13) Salomon Kalou (31) had Chelsea cruising before a late first half goal from Emile Heskey (45) and a fantastic second half performance including a second from Heskey (75) looked to have earned Wigan a deserved point. It wasn't to be Arjan Robben (90) popped up with an injury time winner to deny them.
