Premier League Results – Tevez helps City to victory

Carlos Tevez marked his Manchester City return by setting up the winner in their 2-1 success against Chelsea.

City fell behind on the hour mark when Gary Cahill’s effort struck Yaya Toure to give Joe Hart no chance, but Sergio Aguero equalised from the penalty spot on 78 minutes after Michael Essien handled a shot from Pablo Zabaleta.

And Tevez, on as a second-half substitute, then made a big impact in his first game since last September, when he allegedly refused to come off the bench during a Champions League game against Bayern Munich. The Argentinian international’s clever pass created an opening for Samir Nasri five minutes from time, and the Frenchman made no mistake with a superb chipped finish.

Following the game, William Hill cut Manchester City from 13/8 to 6/4 to win the Premier League title, for which Manchester United are 1/2 favourites.

Elsewhere, Queens Park Rangers netted three times in the final 13 minutes as they snatched a 3-2 win over stunned Liverpool.

The Reds looked to have wrapped up the points when Sebastian Coates volleyed in their opener and Dirk Kuyt added a second, but Shaun Derry sparked a sensational Rangers comeback when he headed in 13 minutes from time.

Former Reds striker Djibril Cisse then levelled matters with a header of his own, and Scotland international Jamie Mackie wrapped up the winner by pouncing on a Jose Enrique mistake in added time.

And finally, Thomas Vermaelen netted the only goal of the game as Arsenal moved into third place with a 1-0 win at Everton, while Tottenham, who are now down to fourth, rescued a 1-1 draw against Stoke City. Cameron Jerome gave the Potters the lead 15 minutes from time, but Rafael van der Vaart snatched a point for Spurs.

Arsenal are now 8/13 favourites to be the top London club at the end of the season, with Tottenham 6/4 and Chelsea 8/1.
