Leicester City 2 – 2 Middlesbrough
Funny how one season could change the fortunes! This time last year, the Foxes were almost unbeatable at home. But the Champions have been in such poor form that Middlesbrough felt very sad at dropping points in this encounter. It needed a late penalty by Islam to rescue a draw for Leicester. For Boro, this could be a hard pill to swallow but they would be buoyed by this performance.
Swansea 5 – 4 Crystal Palace
This was a pulsating match which swung both ways more than once. There were times when Palace would have thought they had the match in their bag but the Swans played their heart out and celebrated wild. The first ever win under new coach Bob Bradley helped them come out of the bottom.
Hull City 1 – 1 West Brom
The Baggies looked on course to claim a vital victory but Michael Dawson helped the hosts clinch a crucial point. Gareth McAuley scored in the 34th minute and it looked like it will stay that way but Dawson prodded the ball into the net with 18 minutes to go. The score remained that way and Tony Pulis’ men would be a tad disappointed at dropping points.
Liverpool 2 – 0 Sunderland
It’s a win that tasted sour for Jurgen Klopp who saw his talisman Philippe Countinho lost to injury. Sunderland and David Moyes came looking to frustrate the hosts and for most part of the evening, they did. Substitute Divock Origi opened the scoring after 75 minutes and David Milner added a late second. Klopp will still be counting the loss of Countinho than gain of three points.
