Liverpool snatch draw against Brum
Liverpool got its first draw of the season after drawing Birmingham City 2-2 at Anfield in the last match of round 12 of the English Premiership.
Liverpool had gone into half-time trailing the visitors 1-2 but a second half penalty ensured the sided shared the spoils.
The draw means that the Anfield outfit stays in seventh position on the ladder whilst Birmingham is just three places above the relegation places.
Also in round 12, league leaders Chelsea extended their lead at the top to five points after beating Manchester United by 1-nil.
That loss for Manchester United coupled by Arsenal's win over Wolverhampton Wanderers means that the Gunners leapfrogged them into second position with the defending champions in third place on goal difference.
Burnley drew with Manchester City and following Liverpool's draw, Chelsea is the only team in the league not to have drawn at this stage of the season.
This week I will take a look at the home ladder and in the next post on the English premiership I will take a look at the away ladder.
So not surprising Chelsea top the home ladder with a perfect record and only one goal conceded.
Portsmouth anchor the ladder after their poor start to the season.
Lucky Liverpool got a draw, it would have been two losses in a row at home because I reckon Man City will beat them.
I think matches after international breaks are a bit tricky Nigel but yes the Liverpool/Man City with both teams needing a win. Man City wouldn't want a draw after drawing their last five matches and Liverpool will have to win this one especially against a rival for the champions league placings.
Everyone seems to be pre-occupied with Chelsea, Man U and Liverpool insofar as the title goes and forgetting the Gunners who are now second. The table does not lie. The Gunners also have a game in hand and assuming they win it they are just two points behind Chelsea. The Gunners will just surprise everybody by taking the title this season. Go Gunners!
Tommy, I think the reason why the spotlight has been on Liverpool so much is because they were expected to go for the title this season after finishing a close second last season.
Yes, the Gunners are going on well doing their business and are in second spot. The game in hand is a home match against Bolton and so you would think they would win that one and so they would look like they are two points behind Chelsea and three above Man U.
I think we will see how good they are when they play Chelsea at the end of the month.
