West Ham biegt Derby, ManU und Spurs geben Punkte ab!

Erst der Ausgleich durch Carlos Tévez rettete dem Premier League-Führenden einen Punkt bei West Hams Lieblingsgegner Blackburn:
Last-gasp Man Utd salvage point

Chelsea, das schon am Donnerstag 1:0 gegen Everton gewonnen hatte, konnte damit wieder auf drei Punkte an den Titelverteidiger herankommen.

West Ham profitierte im Kampf ums "top 10 finish" von T*tenhams 1:1 gegen Wigan. Wigan liegt nun schon fünf Punkte über der Relegationszone und West Ham wieder fünf Punkte vor den Spurs. Die Hammers, deren Team gegenüber dem letzten Spiel an sieben Punkten verändert wurde, siegten gegen Fixabsteiger Derby County knapp mit 2:1 (1:0):
West Ham luckily found victory at Upton Park
A weak Dean Leacock challenge allowed Hammers striker Bobby Zamora to nod home on 25 minutes
[assist: McCartney, free kick] but Derby, showing rare creative intent, hit back.
Tyrone Mears powered a fine equaliser over Robert Green on 65 minutes and the Rams were looking likely winners.
But substitute Carlton Cole cushioned in a close-range volley
10 minutes later to leave the visitors desolate [assist: Ljungberg - Ljungberg passed the ball to Noble and Noble slipped the ball inside a Derby defender, Ljungberg ran onto the ball and crossed the ball into the box for a simple tap in for Cole]. Derby now need five points from their remaining three matches to ensure their season is not the most unsuccessful Premier League campaign ever. (BBC)

West Ham manager Alan Curbishley:
"After losing our last three games it was important that we bounced back. There is a great lack of appreciation of what we have done this season.
"We have managed to keep away from the danger area. On Friday morning we were scratching our heads to see how we would put a team together.
"The players have done really well and looking back this has been a successful season."
