Premiership round-up (28-30/04/07)

Pompey won 2-1 in our latest Barclays Premiership match with Liverpool at Fratton on Saturday, what about the other results.

Saturday, 28/04/07
Blackburn 4-1 Charlton
Blackburn put another nail in Charlton's coffin with a comprehensive victory. Jason Roberts (60) put Blackburn ahead before Charlton had Ben Thatcher (64) sent off. Darren Bent (71) levelled for the ten men before a Herman Hreidarsson (77) own goal was added to by another Jason Roberts (80) strike with Matt Derbyshire (83) completed the scoring

Chelsea 2-2 Bolton
Chelsea's title hopes all but ended in the lunchtime SKY Sports match after they could only draw. Slovakian international Lubomir Michalik (19) gave Bolton the lead on his premiership debut. Salomon Kalou (22) soon equalised then a fortuitous own goal from Jussi Jaaskelainen (34) put Chelsea ahead. Kevin Davies (54) earned Bolton a point early in the second half.

Everton 2-4 Man Utd
As Chelsea's title hopes died on one SKY Sports channel on another United's came back from the death to practically wrap it up. Alan Stubbs (12) and former Pompey loanee Manuel Fernandes (50) had Everton 2-0 up before United stormed back through John O'Shea (61), a Phil Neville (68) own goal, Wayne Rooney (79) and Chris Eagles (90) in injury time.

Man City 0-2 Aston Villa
Villa's good run continued as City again failed to score at home. John Carew (24) put Villa ahead, Shaun Maloney (75) secured victory.

Middlesbrough 2-3 Tottenham
Spurs remained on our coattails after victory. Robbie Keane (12) and Dimitar Berbatov (47) had Spurs in control before Mark Viduka (66) reduced the deficit. Robbie Keane (83) restored the two goal lead before a late Emanuel Pogatetz (89) goal gave Boro hope.

Sheff Utd 1-0 Watford
Watford may have already been relegated but they still want to end the season on a high, but this did not begin at the weekend. Chris Powell's (44) own goal saw Sheff United gain a vital three points.

Wigan 0-3 West Ham
West Ham dragged Wigan further into the relegation battled whist clawing themselves ever closer to safety after thumping Wigan at the JJB. Luis Boa Morte (30), Yossi Benayoun (57) and Marlon Harewood (82) with the goals.

Sunday, 29/04/07
Arsenal 3-1 Fulham
Sunday's LIVE SKY Sports match saw Julio Baptista (4) give Arsenal an early lead. Simon Davies (78) thought he had rescued a priceless point for Fulham near the end but late goals from Emmanuel Adebayor (84) and a penalty from Gilberto Silva (87) secured an Arsenal victory.

Monday, 30/04/07
Reading 1-0 Newcastle
Reading won the LIVE SKY Sports Monday night football game thanks to Dave Kitson's (51) goal. They moved back up to the 7th as a result.

Very difficult for a European place now, would need to win both Everton and Arsenal games to be in with a chance. Top 10 looks good and would be very happy with that.

Everton is the one, I think we will turn over arsenal at home, it's if we attack at Everton

Well the win over Liverpool made it more realistic, but it will be tough... I have this feeling we could still get in with just the one win, but this would have to be over Everton and I have this other feeling we'll snatch it 1-0... I do hope 'arry has a go at Everton but judging by most of our away showing this season it is unlikely... It would be great going into the final weekend with our destiny in our own hands...

Whatever happens it has been a great season though and we can finish it knowing that we will win more matches than we lose, something we've never achieved in the premiership before... Other than our championship year how often in recent times have we been able to say we've won more games than we've lost? Not too many...

Everton have got injury problems as well as us though, so we still have a chance of getting something from Goodison - though it has to be remembered that we were holding out well a couple of seasons ago until the referee played something like six minutes of added on time when only four was given. Just enough time for Everton to score and take the points away.
