A review of Sunday's action in the Barclays Premier League.

  • Suarez heads home Liverpool's late equaliser
  • Gareth Bale celebrates after netting Spurs' third goal 

Luis Suarez capped a controversial afternoon by scoring a dramatic late equaliser as Liverpool ruined Rafa Benitez's return to Anfield with a 2-2 draw against Chelsea.

Eden Hazard's penalty on 57 minutes appeared set to lift Chelsea back into third spot after Liverpool's half-time substitute Daniel Sturridge had cancelled out Oscar's first-half header.

Tottenham 3 - 1 Man City

However, midway through the second half, Suarez appeared to bite Branislav Ivanovic before the Uruguayan striker headed home an equaliser in the seventh minute of added time.

There was bad news for Chelsea earlier in the day as Tottenham's Champions League hopes received a huge shot in the arm as they staged a stunning comeback to defeat Manchester City 3-1 and leave the champions on the brink of relinquishing their Premier League crown.

Former Arsenal man Samir Nasri looked as if he was going to inflict another damaging defeat on Andre Villas-Boas' men when he put City ahead in the first half.

Despite the return of Gareth Bale, Spurs struggled to get into the game. They lacked cohesion for the most part, but Villas-Boas' substitutions changed the game and led to a spell of three goals in seven minutes to claim a famous victory which means Manchester United will win the title on Monday night if they beat strugglers Aston Villa at home.

Clint Dempsey equalised for Spurs from Bale's cross before Jermain Defoe marked his return with a powerful finish after being found by substitute Lewis Holtby and Bale rounded off the win with his 23rd goal of the season in the 82nd minute after being played in by another replacement Tom Huddlestone.
