England Premier League — 31 January 2013

Adam Le Fondre was again the hero as he scored a double in Reading's 2-2 draw with ChelseaLast night’s games in the Premier League produced two amazing comebacks.

Reading completed the most amazing comeback of the night by scoring two goals in the dying minutes to draw 2-2 with Chelsea at the Madejski Stadium.

The Blues took the lead in first half stoppage-time, Juan Mata firing home from a superb through ball from Fernando Torres.

The visitors looked to have sealed all three points in the 66th minute, when Frank Lampard headed home Juan Mata’s corner kick.

Royals super-sub Adam Le Fondre was at it again in the 87th minute, firing home from Hope Akpan’s pass. With one of the last kicks of the game Le Fondre slotted home the equaliser to give the Royals and unlikely point that took them out of the relegation zone.

Arsenal also came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium. Liverpool raced out of the blocks and were ahead after just six minutes. Gunners keeper Wojciech Szczesny denied Daniel Sturridge, only for Luis Suarez to score with the rebound via a deflection off Bacary Sagna.

Liverpool doubled their lead on the hour mark. Jordan Henderson ran at the Arsenal defence, got a few luck breaks before scoring with the simplest of efforts. Arsenal got back into the game in the 64th minute, Oliver Giroud heading the Gunners back into the game.

The momentum was then with the home side. Giroud took part in the equaliser in the 67th minute, laying the ball the ball back to Theo Walcott, who fired a powerful effort past Pepe Reina. Arsenal had chances to win the game late-on, but couldn’t find a winner.
