Six Barclays Premier League matches took place on Saturday, 4th December 2010.
Chelsea’s form blip looks in danger of becoming more than just a wobble, as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Everton. Across London, Arsenal were getting the better of local rivals, Fulham, 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium, courtesy of two Nasri goals, to keep up the pressure on Ancelotti’s men.
Arsenal took the lead in the Premier League with their win. They sit one point ahead of Manchester United who have a game in hand, and two ahead of Chelsea, who don’t.
Man City kept up their challenge for a Champions League place with a good 1-0 win at home to Bolton, who started the day only three points behind them. Carlos Tevez was on target for the hosts, who pulled two points away from Spurs, who could only manage a point away at Birmingham, where they drew 1-1.
Stoke are seventh in the league and Wigan are still in the relegation ejector seat of 17th, on 15 points, after they shared a point with each other in an entertaining 2-2 draw at Wigan’s DW Stadium.
Blackburn got over their humiliation at the hands of Man Utd by picking up a good three points with the same number of goals at home to Wolves – they won 3-0 through goals from Dunn, Emerton and Nelsen. Wolves remain at the foot of the table, still just three points from the ‘safe’ positions.
