Liverpool Destroy Newcastle in a Meaningless 6-0, Hart's gaffe mars City win,Tottenham scrape draw at Wigan

Newcastle 0 6 Liverpool

Liverpool put a controversial week behind them as a Luis Suarez-less XI turned on the style to destroy Newcastle 6-0 at St James' Park. Suarez's 10-game ban for biting Branislav Ivanovic had cast a cloud over Liverpool's preparations but they exploited what has a horrendous performance from the struggling hosts to suggest that all may not be lost without their star striker.

Daniel Agger headed Liverpool into a third-minute lead before former Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson claimed the first of his two goals when completing a sweeping team move that was characteristic of the visiting side's swagger on Tyneside.

Daniel Sturridge then profited from a stunning assist from Philippe Coutinho to make it 3-0 after 54 minutes, and the England international soon added another following another lapse of concentration in the home defence.

Fabio Borini netted a fifth less than a minute after making his return from injury and, after Mathieu Debuchy had been dismissed for a second bookable offence, Henderson scored directly from the resulting free-kick.

While Liverpool sit five points behind local rivals Everton in seventh, the damaging defeat leaves Newcastle just five clear of relegation - and both Wigan and Aston Villa have four games remaining to teir five.

Manchester City 2 1 Westham United


Two high-quality goals from Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure gave Manchester City a 2-1 home win over West Ham in the Premier League, but a disastrous piece of goalkeeping from Joe Hart denied them a clean sheet in injury time.

City's title was snatched away from them on Monday but Roberto Mancini's side are still aiming to approach the FA Cup final in top form and produced a stylish performance at the Etihad Stadium.

Aguero put City in front after 28 minutes when converting following a flowing team move that included contributions from Toure, David Silva and Samir Nasri, who pulled the ball back for the striker to score his 11th Premier League goal of the season.

Nasri also supplied the second assist after 83 minutes as he knocked a pass square for Toure, who lashed a brilliant effort into the top corner.

However, after sustaining a back injury, Hart was guilty of a shocking lapse deep into added time as a shot from Andy Carroll trundled straight through the legs of the England number one.

Wigan Athletic 2 2 Totenham Hotspurs

Tottenham Hotspur salvaged a 2-2 draw at Wigan in the Premier League as Emmerson Boyce scored at both ends. Gareth Bale gave Spurs a freakish early lead when he charged down a Joel Robles clearance as Wigan pressed the self-destruct button.

Almost immediately, Boyce headed Wigan level and they went in front early in the second half thanks to a superb Callum McManaman strike. Wigan deserved all three points but were denied when Tom Huddlestone drilled a low free-kick into the six-yard box and the ball ricocheted in off Boyce.

Bale and Huddlestone both went close in a frantic finale, but Tottenham had to settle for a draw that does little for either side. Wigan remain in the bottom three on 32 points, while Tottenham missed the chance to go provisionally third - they stay fifth instead.
