Bellamy thwarts Liverpool
Liverpool 1 - Manchester City 1
Sunday 22 February 2009
Former Liverpool striker Craig Bellamy scored to deny his old club the chance to cut the gap on leaders Manchester United to five points as Manchester City claimed a 1-1 draw at Anfield in the Barclays Premier League today.
Bellamy pounced to score after 49 minutes following good work by Robinho and Vincent Kompany.
Liverpool equalised through Dirk Kuyt when he scored after Fernando Torres had failed to convert Yossi Benayoun's cross.
But a point meant United's lead stands at seven points following their 2-1 win over Blackburn yesterday.
Bobby Zamora finally ended his long barren streak as Fulham condemned bottom side West Brom to a hopelessly one-sided 2-0 defeat.
Zamora had played more than 29 hours of Premier League football since his last goal but tapped home the opener from point-blank range before strike partner Andy Johnson added his ninth of the season in all competitions to seal a well-earned victory.
The home side struck the woodwork on four separate occasions as they ran riot with Clint Dempsey, Brede Hangeland and, on two occasions, Danny Murphy the men to miss out, while Roman Bednar missed an injury-time penalty for the visitors.
Ten-man Newcastle held out for a 0-0 draw at home to Everton after having Kevin Nolan sent off for a bad tackle on Victor Anichebe a minute before half-time.
