Premier League — 28 April 2013

Daniel Sturridge scored twice as Liverpool hammered Newcastle 6-0Yesterday’s Premier League games produced some absolute cracking games. One of the highlights of the day came at the DW Stadium, where Wigan drew 2-2 with Tottenham.

Tottenham took the lead after just nine minutes, Wigan producing a defensive catastrophe.

Maynor Figueroa and keeper Joel decided to mess around with the ball at the back.

Gareth Bale charged the keepers’ clearance down and the ball rebounded off the Welshman into the net. Spurs were ahead for just two minutes though, defender Emmerson Boyce rising superbly to head home.

Spurs were on top for much of the first period, but it was the home side who struck in the second half. James McCarthy found winger Callum McManaman and the youngster produced a powerful effort from just outside the penalty area.

The Latics looked set to move out of the relegation zone until the 90th minute. Boyce then went from hero to villain as a low Spurs free-kick hit defender and beat Joel in the Wigan goal.

The draw left the Latics two points from safety, while Tottenham are just outside the top four on goal difference.

Newcastle are still in the fight for survival after the Magpies were hammered 6-0 at home to Liverpool. The visitors took the lead after just three minutes, centre-back Daniel Agger beating the offside trap to head a looping effort over Rob Elliot from a Stewart Downing cross.

The Reds doubled their lead on 17 minutes, Jordan Henderson tapping-home after a lightning counter-attack involving Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho. Liverpool made it three in the second half Coutinho again involved finding Sturridge in the penalty area and the England international firing home.

Sturridge scored the fourth with a tap-in from Henderson’s cross. Substitute Fabio Borini toe-poked the fifth just seconds after entering the pitch. The Magpies misery was complete in the 76th minute, as a Jordan Henderson whipped free-kick missed everybody and found the corner of the net.
