Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice to put Tottenham ahead in the race for fourth place in the Premier League with a 4-1 win at Bolton.

Luka Modric put Spurs ahead in the first half with a spectacular half volley and, although Nigel Reo-Coker equalized in the 51st, Tottenham retaliated with three goals in 10 minutes.

Rafael van der Vaart restored the lead in the 60th and Adebayor made it 3-1 two minutes later before completing the scoring with a far-post finish from Aaron Lennon's cross.

It was Tottenham's second Premier League win at Bolton and its first since 1996.

Bolton midfielder Fabrice Muamba greeted fans and watched the game from the stands, less than seven weeks after his on-field cardiac arrest against Spurs.

146  Forum / Sports / Newcastle Sinks Chelsea at The Bridge on: 2-05-2012 10:33 PM
Papiss Cisse scored a breathtaking double to crush Chelsea's Premier League top-four hopes with a 2-0 win and leave them almost certainly needing to win the Champions League to qualify for next season's competition.

Cisse produced one of the best goals ever seen at Stamford Bridge, leaving Alan Pardew's men in what looks a straight shootout between themselves, Tottenham and Arsenal for third and fourth place.

The 26-year-old had already netted a stunning opener when he unleashed an outrageous 30-yard banana shot with the outside of his right foot late on.

The goal was his 13th in 12 league appearances for Newcastle.

That came in 10 minutes of second-half stoppage-time added for a sickening head injury to Cheik Tiote, the only sour note on a night that left Newcastle four points clear of sixth-placed Chelsea with two games left to play.

The defeat was the first major setback for caretaker Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo in his bid to land the job full-time, with owner Roman Abramovich in attendance.

There is still plenty for Di Matteo to play for, starting with Saturday's FA Cup final, but the Italian's number one priority was qualifying for the Champions League and the Blues now look like they will need to beat Bayern Munich in next month's final to do so.

Despite insisting he would pick his strongest possible team tonight, Di Matteo rested both Juan Mata and Frank Lampard.

They certainly did not seem to miss them in an opening 10 minutes that threatened to be a re-run of Sunday's wet and muddy thrashing of QPR.

Fernando Torres looked in the mood to add to his first Blues hat-trick, although this time he failed to round the goalkeeper after being found by Raul Meireles' long ball.

The striker then bamboozled Tiote into an early booking before the Newcastle midfielder then left Ramires in some pain after accidentally kicking him in the hand.

Torres soon switched to assist mode, with Daniel Sturridge failing to connect with his low cross but that was as close as they went before the visitors got a grip.

And after Demba Ba hooked over under pressure, they struck in stunning fashion in the 19th minute.

Davide Santon and Cisse were both given too much space but the latter still needed just one touch to control the full-back's pass before volleying left-footed into the top corner.

A disjointed Chelsea took almost 20 minutes to muster a response as the absence of Lampard and Mata began to show.

When they finally did, they should have equalised, Florent Malouda heading Torres' brilliant cross wide and Branislav Ivanovic nodding Meireles' corner over under pressure.

But they were lucky not to go into the break two down when Demba Ba forced a scrambling save from Petr Cech and then drilled against the crossbar after Chelsea failed to deal with a corner.

Di Matteo wasted no time sending on Mata at the restart, with Sturridge withdrawn, something that almost had an instant impact when Tiote blocked Meireles' drive after more good work from Torres.

But the lack of precision in Chelsea's passing continued and they quickly resorted to trying their luck from set-pieces when Ramires went down very easily under Yohan Cabaye's challenge, earning the latter a booking.

Both teams were given the benefit of the doubt on the hour mark when Tiote's flailing arm caught the face of John Obi Mikel, who then led with his elbow in an aerial challenge with his fellow midfielder.

Tiote stayed down and it took around seven minutes to treat him and carry him off on a stretcher and in an oxygen mask with what looked a serious head injury.

Ryan Taylor came on, with Chelsea having already introduced Didier Drogba for Malouda, and tempers began to flare when Ba took exception an Ivanovic challenge from behind.

Newcastle were in danger of losing their composure and Ba was quickly withdrawn for Shola Ameobi, before Di Matteo threw on Lampard for Meireles in the 78th minute.

Chelsea's attacks became increasingly desperate and Lampard flashed wide from distance, while Fabricio Coloccini went close to glancing Drogba's cross into his own net.

Newcastle withdrew Hatem Ben Arfa for Gabriel Obertan and they had Santon to thank for preserving their lead when he cleared John Terry's 88th-minute header off the line.

Krul was booked for time-wasting but he need not have worried as Cisse sealed the win in the most outrageous fashion.

Fabrice Muamba waved to supporters as he returned to the Reebok Stadium for the first time since his cardiac arrest.

The Bolton midfielder entered the field to a standing ovation as he was introduced ahead of Wanderers' Barclays Premier League game against Tottenham.

The 24-year-old has made a remarkable recovery since collapsing during the FA Cup tie between the same two teams at White Hart Lane on March 17.

The former England Under-21 international was followed by a TV camera as he acknowledged the applause of fans while his fiancee Shauna Magunda took photographs. Muamba arrived at the ground about an hour before kick-off and stopped to speak to TV reporters.

He told Sky Sports: "I wish I was playing, obviously my circumstances are not helping at the moment but I'm sure the boys will go out and give their best."

Muamba then went to take a seat to watch what was a vital match for Bolton in their battle against relegation.

Muamba's heart stopped beating for 78 minutes following his collapse and he spent a month at the London Chest Hospital before being discharged on April 16. The speed of his recovery has amazed medical professionals.

He started talking two days after his collapse and began walking just over a fortnight later, although it is not yet known if he will play professional football again.

Muamba added on Sky Sports: "This is a special place, the support has been overwhelming and I am just grateful for that.

"I am okay, I am getting stronger every day. I am happy to be back I am just happy to be able to speak to people again and walk freely."

Congratulations Fabrice.. 78 Minutes? Kinda Getting Emotional Right Now.. Have Your Say pals..
148  Forum / Sports / Tom Cleverley: ‘The title race isn’t over’ (Video) on: 2-05-2012 10:35 AM
Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley has warned Manchester City that the title race isn’t over yet.

The 22-year-old pointed to United’s track record of comebacks as he insisted that Sir Alex Ferguson’s men have not given up yet.

Cleverley, who was helping to launch Adidas’ new Predator Lethal Zones boot, said: “The title race isn’t over. United have comeback in the past and I just want to have some input from now to the end of the season.”

He added: “It’s always been the Manchester United way to go on until the end, so that’s exactly what we’ll do.”

<a href="" target="_blank" class="aeva_link bbc_link new_win" rel="nofollow"></a>

After having his own season ravaged by an ankle injury, Cleveley is hoping to be playing international football of some sort this summer.

He said: “I want to play games all the time, so whether it be representing England at the Euros or Great Britain at the Olympics I’m happy to play the games.”

Hmm. Not Over? Well at least that's what He thinks.. Have your say guys....
149  Forum / Sports / Luiz and Cahill Set For Champions League final on: 2-05-2012 10:33 AM
David Luiz and Gary Cahill should both be fit and ready to play in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich after recovering from hamstring injuries, the Daily Telegraph has reported. The news will come as a relief to interim Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo, who has suggested the pair could feature in Saturday’s FA Cup final with Liverpool, the newspaper adds.

Luiz was injured during Chelsea’s 5-1 FA Cup semi-final victory over Tottenham Hotspur, while Cahill lasted only 11 minutes of the Blues’ triumph over Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final at the Nou Camp. With both John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic suspended for the match on May 19, to be held in Bayern’s own Allianz Arena, Luiz and Cahill are looking like being Di Matteo’s default central defensive partnership.

Chelsea play Newcastle United on Wednesday evening and while Di Matteo will not be able to call on either Cahill or Luiz for the match against Alan Pardew’s high-flying Magpies, the interim manager has not yet ruled either player out of making the FA Cup final squad. He said: “ We need to check their progress on a daily basis. For the Newcastle game, it’s too early. We will see on Thursday and Friday…hopefully they’ll be ready before the Champions League final.”

Hmm. Good News For Blues Supporters Indeed..
150  Forum / Sports / Chelsea Interested In Everton Midfielder Marouane Fellaini on: 2-05-2012 10:30 AM
Chelsea are considering an offer for Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini as owner Roman Abramovich continues to reshape the Blues squad in advance of appointing a permanent manager, the Daily Mirror has reported.

Germany international Marko Marin is already confirmed as making the switch to Stamford Bridge this summer and the newspaper reports the Chelsea hierarchy see Fellaini as a valuable addition to the club’s midfield.

At only 24 Fellaini fits the brief believed to be guiding Chelsea’s transfer policy - younger plays to compliment the ageing legs of the likes of Frank Lampard and John Terry. The Mirror suggests a fee of around £20m will be offered to Everton for the Belgium international.

Fellaini signed a new five-year contract at Everton in November 2011 and has become an integral part of David Moyes’ side since moving to Goodison Park from Standard Liege in 2008 for an Everton record fee of around £15m.

153  Forum / Sports / Dalglish Unhappy With Players Atitude on: 2-05-2012 10:23 AM
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish insists last night's poor 1-0 defeat to Fulham will have no bearing on Saturday's FA Cup final against Chelsea.

The Scot had hoped a number of fringe players would stake their claims to be involved at Wembley after making nine changes, leaving out the likes of Luis Suarez, Steven Gerrard and Craig Bellamy.

But Fulham, who had never won at Anfield in 30 previous attempts, took a fifth-minute lead through Martin Skrtel's own goal and were barely troubled after that.

"It will not affect Saturday but that doesn't mean it (the performance) is right and it is not something you want to dismiss easily," said Dalglish, who was critical of his players' attitude.

"It is not correct to go about your work in that way.

"But if we had come in and won 4-0 it wouldn't have made any difference to Saturday.

"There are one or two who did well but apart from that there wasn't anything for us, myself included. A lot of people have to take responsibility for it.

"There were some positives. It was nice to see the big lad (Carroll) back.

"He had a niggle at the weekend but he is fit and back and played 90 minutes so that is good for us."

Prior to the match Dalglish had challenged his squad to play for cup final places but admitted after the tally of dropped points at home reached an incredible 30 that he may have made a mistake.

"Their attitude was not right and if you get a bad attitude you going to get a bad performance and that is what we got," he added.

"I am culpable as well as I changed a lot of players to try to give everyone an opportunity to get in the frame for Saturday.

"I suppose by doing that it was a contributory factor to what happened.

"I tried to be fair and give everyone an opportunity - maybe I was wrong."
