Premiership round-up (26-27/12/06)

Pompey won again, beating West Ham on the road thanks to a double from Linvoy in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others.

Tuesday, 26/12/06
Blackburn 1-0 Liverpool
The LIVE SKY Sports Prem Plus game on Boxing Day saw Benni McCarthy (48) score the only goal to give Blackburn victory over an inform Liverpool.

Bolton 2-1 Newcastle
Kieran Dyer (8) gave Newcastle an early lead before a controversial Peter Ramage (32) own goal levelled things. Goal machine Nicolas Anelka scored the winner for a very much inform Bolton, Pompey`s next opponent.

Chelsea 2-2 Reading
Chelsea twice surrendered a lead in the early LIVE SKY Sports offering. Didier Drogba (38) gave the Champions the lead before Reading equalised for the first time through Leroy Lita (67). Drogba (72) put Chelsea a head again and on course for three points but again defensive frailties cost them as Ashley Cole's attempted clearance hit Michael Essien (85) to go in for an own goal.

Everton 0-0 Middlesbrough
Two teams battling it out at opposite ends of the table had to settle for a point a piece. Still plenty of time to play in the season but a point did little to help either really.

Man Utd 3-1 Wigan
United responded to Chelsea's draw with another three point haul thanks to a second half double from substitute Cristiano Ronaldo (47 & 51) and a third from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (57). Wigan responded with a late penalty through Leighton Baines (90).

Sheff Utd 0-1 Man City
Two teams battled it out before Stephen Ireland (78) popped up to strike the winner for City towards the end.

Tottenham 2-1 Aston Villa
One radio reporter called the Jermaine Defoe verses Gareth Barry at the end, Defoe came out on top. Defoe's (58 & 77) double gave Spurs breathing room before Barry (81) gave Villa hope.

Watford 1-2 Arsenal
Watford put in another spirited performance but as is happening so often this season they were undone by a late winner. A red hot Gilberto Silva (19) gave Arsenal the lead before Tommy Smith (23) quickly equalised. Watford matched Arsenal in an entertaining evening LIVE SKY Sports match but were defeated by Robin Van Persie (83) late on.

Wednesday, 27/12/06
Charlton 2-2 Fulham
The LIVE SKY Sports game saw Fulham take an early lead through Brian McBride (13) before Charlton responded through Darren Ambrose (19) and Darren Bent (45) to go ahead. Franck Queudrue's injury time equaliser denied Alan Pardew a winning start to his Charlton reign.
