Liverpool rallies, Arsenal disappoints

[ENGLAND] On an evening when severe weather conditions with heavy winds and rain in northern England led to the postponement of games involving Americans Jozy Altidore (Manchester City-Sunderland) and Tim Howard (Everton-Crystal Palace), two matches in London had a huge impact on the English Premier League title race.

Liverpool came back from two one-goal deficits to win, 3-2, at Fulham on Steven Gerrard's penalty kick in stoppage time, and move to within four points of leader Chelsea, which had tied West Bromwich, 1-1, on Tuesday.

Arsenal could have taken the lead with a win over Manchester United at the Emirates, but the Gunners left the field to boos as they had to settle for a 0-0 tie that leaves them still a point behind Chelsea.



The only American to play on Tuesday in England was Geoff Cameron for Stoke City. Clint Dempsey did not dress for Fulham.

    Am I the only one who remembers that it was Aaron Ramsey who drove the bus for the Gunners during their glory days last year, and since he went out, they have struggled, and yet they are still only two points off the top. Their schedule is not so tough for the next month. If they get Ramsey back in form before the critical mid-March games against the top teams, they might still win the EPL.

    Still, could use someone to spell Giroud,& this match, unlike the draw with Chelsea, was boring.......
