Carlos Tevez scored twice today giving battling 10-man City a point.

Ivan Klasnic fired in from close range , but Tevez levelled with a deflected effort, only for Gary Cahill to curl in a 20-yard shot.

Hull 0 Blackburn 0

Emmerson Boyce bravely headed Wigan in front before Tuncay Sanli latched on to a flick-on to equalise.

Sunderland 1 Portsmouth 1

Younes Kaboul’s last-gasp strike snatched a point for Portsmouth.

Sunderland dominated and Kenwyne Jones brought a fine save out of David James before Andy Reid pulled the ball back for Bent, who fired home.

Jordan Henderson and Lorik Cana should have seen off Pompey before Kaboul rifled in , but his joy was short-lived as he received a silly second yellow card for taking off his shirt.

Video Portsmouth manager Avram Grant was thought his team dominated the second half and more than deserved their point

Tottenham 0 Wolves 1

Wolves hung on to an early Kevin Doyle goal to stun high-flying Tottenham.

Doyle handed Wolves a dream start when Nenad Milijas swung the ball in and the Irish striker got the faintest of touches to beat Heurelho Gomes.

Robbie Keane just missed the target, Sebastien Bassong headed over and Peter Crouch nodded wide. Marcus Hahnemann twice denied Tom Huddlestone as Spurs somehow failed to find an equaliser.

Spurs manager Harry Redknapp gave full credit to Wolves’ defending as they shut out Tottenham for most of the game.
