The EPL Wrap

Sunday 21/12/14

Overnight, Round 17 of the EPL commenced with 2nd place Manchester City, 3rd place Manchester United, 4th place West Ham United and 5th place Southampton involved. Sunday saw comfortable wins for Manchester City over Crystal Palace (3-0), West Ham over Leicester City (2-0) and Southampton over Everton (3-0), while Manchester United could only manage a 1-1 draw at Aston Villa, with a Falcao header cancelling out Christian Benteke’s wonderstrike.

In other EPL news, Swansea City defeated Hull City 1-0, QPR defeated West Bromwich Albion 3-2 and Tottenham returned to winning ways with a 2-1 win over Burnley.

In the Big Bash League, the veterans of Jacques Kallis and Michael Hussey (both scoring 96) helped the Sydney Thunder reach an imposing total of 1/208 after 20 overs. The Brisbane Heat could only manage 152 in their chase, handing victory to the Thunder, who have won the Wooden Spoon in all 3 previous Big Bash Leagues.
