BIRMINGHAM 1 (Zigic 93)

Birmingham left it very late to see off Stoke and ease their relegation worries. There seemed little danger as a shot from David Bentley should have been gathered by keeper Asmir Begovic but he failed to hold it and allowed Cameron Jerome to clip the ball across goal for Nikola Zigic to head in from close range.

ASTON VILLA 1 (Agbonlahor 10)

Blackpool ended their losing run as they came from behind to draw at home to Aston Villa. The visitors led when Gabriel Agbonlahor was sent clear by Darren Bent and after rounding the keeper, rolling the ball in despite two players covering the line. It should be noted that the assistant ref who correctly ruled the Villa man to be onside was Sian Massey. Blackpool levelled inside four minutes as Elliott Grandin headed in Charlie Adam's corner. Villa ended with ten men when Jean Makoun launched into a two footed challenge on DJ Campbell.

MANCHESTER UNITED 2 (Nani 41, Rooney 78)

Man United maintain their four point lead at the top after a sensational Wayne Rooney goal won the Manchester derby. They led just before half time when Nani collected a pass from Ryan Giggs and rolled the ball past the keeper, however City levelled after the break when a shot from Edin Dzeko deflected in via David Silva's back. Cue the winner as Nani's cross was drifting behind Rooney but he launched into an overhead kick which rocketed into the net. Commentator Martin Tyler stated that it "defies description". Goal of the Season would sum it up at the moment. Fantastic goal whichever team you support.

WEST HAM 3 (Demba Ba 50, Cole 58, Demba Ba 83)

The battle at the bottom turned into a cracker as West Ham came from three down to draw at West Brom. The Baggies were coasting at the break as Peter Odemwingie found Graham Dorrans to wallop in the opener and just five minutes later, Jerome Thomas curled in a beauty after being found by Marc-Antoine Fortune. Just after the half hour, Winston Reid deflected a free kick from Dorrans into his own net. Two goals in thirteen minutes after half time gave the Hammers some hope as new signing Demba Ba collected a pass from Mark Noble before controlling and firing in and then Carlton Cole nodded in a header from Frederic Piquionne. They grabbed a deserved late equaliser when Ba again found the net with a volley after Noble's cross was deflected on.
