Sports Saturday Thread #1 For 9/11/10: Chelsea's 4th Straight Win Gives Them A Commanding Lead Already
Photo from Premierleague.comWest Ham showed a lot of spirit and skill, but they concede 3 goals once more to Chelsea, as it is four straight wins for the Blues.
And their win was cemented by all of their title rivals except Arsenal dropping points today.
Despite injuries, the Gunners overcame a tough Bolton side with a fine 4-1 victory . Their cross town bitter foes Tottenham though did not get the 3 points, as their own injury woes lead to them finishing 1-1 with diligent West Brom.
Manchester City continued to look like title pretenders, as Joe Hart's shaky day contributed in Blackburn finishing 1-1 with them. But City's result wasn't as hard to swallow as the collapse their neighbors United had, conceding two goals in two minutes late to Everton to end their match at Goodson Park 3-3.
Despite a horrendous broken ankle injury for Bobby Zamora, Fulham got a late winner from Dembele's 2nd goal to overcome Wolves 2-1. Antolin Alcaraz saved Wigan from another home defeat after cancelling out Asamoah Gyan's debut effort to draw with Sunderland 1-1.
And Blackpool recorded another win by beating their promotion brethren Newcastle 2-0 on the road.
Two more matches are left remaining in this weekend, as Birmingham-Liverpool will play tomorrow, and Stoke City will look to finally get points against Aston Villa on Monday.
