Premiership round-up (30/12/06)

Pompey lost 3-2 to Bolton in our latest Barclays Premiership match, what about the others in the last games of 2006.

Saturday, 30/12/06
Blackburn 2-1 Middlesbrough
Blackburn took an early lead through Shabani Nonda (9) before Yakubu (61) equalised with a penalty, given for what people don't seem to know! Benni McCarthy (74) proved the match winner.

Charlton 2-1 Aston Villa
The early LIVE SKY Sports game saw Charlton pick up a vital three points. Gareth Barry (40) opened the scoring for Villa with penalty. Darren Bent (57) brought Charlton level before Barry (61) was shown a red card. Deep in injury time Bryan Hughes scored the winner.

Chelsea 2-2 Fulham
Moritz Volz (17) put Fulham a head with the Premiership's 15,000 strike before Frank Lampard's effort resulted in a Liam Rosenior (35) own goal. Didier Drogba (62) gave Chelsea the lead but their defensive worries continued as they conceded a late equaliser to Carlos Bocanegra (84).

Everton 3-0 Newcastle
Everton youngster Victor Anichebe (9) put Everton a head before Newcastle were given a chance to draw level but Obafemi Martins (42) missed a penalty, shooting high into the stand. Anichebe (58) got his and Everton's second before a rare Phil Neville (62) effort wrapped up a comfortable victory.

Man Utd 3-2 Reading
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (33) gave United the lead but reading were soon level through Ibrahima Sonko (38). Goal scoring machine Cristiano Ronaldo (59) put United ahead again before the Reading task was made even harder as Sam Sodje (69) saw red for a second yellow. Ronaldo's (77) second looked to have secured a comfortably win but Leroy Lita's (90) injury time goal made United sweat.

Sheff Utd 1-0 Arsenal
Despite playing the final half an hour with an outfield playing goal following an injury to Paddy Kenny Sheff United beat Arsenal thanks to Christian Nade's (41) goal in the evening LIVE SKY Sports match.

Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool
A goal on the strike of half time from Luis Garcia (45) gave Liverpool victory over our next opponents.

Watford 1-1 Wigan: Match abandoned after 55 minutes
Svetoslav Todorov's last official game on loan at Wigan before he is due to return to Pompey saw him start and get booked before the game was abandoned due to heavy rain after 55 minutes. Emile Heskey (23) had put Wigan ahead before Tamas Priskin (44) brought Watford level.

West Ham 0-1 Man City
What looked like being a West Ham revival following their win over Man United in Alan Curbishley's first game in charge has since proved a false dawn. A late DeMarcus Beasley (83) goal gave City the win.
