Another fantastic week of football in the Premiership. Chelsea failed to make it a four point lead at the top of the division after a resurgent Hull City earned a draw against the league leaders, but the Tigers still remained in the drop zone despite all their efforts midweek.
Manchester Untied thumped Portsmouth 5-0 to leapfrog the Blues at the top, and Liverpool beat their local rivals in another heated Merseyside derby. The chasing pack of Aston Villa fought out a goalless draw that helped neither team in their pursuit of the elusive Champions League spot.
Manchester City failed to tame the Tigers at the KC Stadium and fell away in their quest for a Champions League spot, but with West Ham United, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Bolton Wanderers not winning, the Tigers' fine week saw them climb to 14th in the League.
