Former Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor opened the scoring for the home side in the 8th minuite to put pressure on Chelsea from the get-go. Striker Daniel Sturridge scored his 2nd goal in 2 matches in the 23rd minute to level for Chelsea. This is how it finished in the end despite both teams having lots of chances (36 shots between them).

EPL News and Transfer Rumours:

Chelsea striker Fernando Torres says Liverpool fans don't know "the truth about why I signed for Chelsea".
He claims that Liverpool lied to him about his future at the club and the fans hate him, which he does not understand why.

Stoke City manager Tony Pulis has hailed 2011 as one of the best years in Stoke's entire history.
If not the best year in their history..... FA Cup finalists, Europa League competition (for the first time), World class players (developing), Top 7 finish and much more!
Stoke are very lucky to have someone like Mr. Pulis as their manager.

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is injured and will miss the Boxing Day match against Wigan due to a foot injury.

Aston Villa striker Darren Bent claims that he is happy at Villa and wants to stay there.

Tottenham midfielder Andros Townsend has signed a new contract with Spurs until 2016.
Young, new talent.... Spurs need players like him in their ranks....

Arsenal have re-scheduled their match against Wolves to the 27th of December (was originally Boxing Day) because of Tube strikes.
The Gunners boss Arsene Wenger believes that a Top 4 finish this season is more realistic than a title challenge.
I think so to.... I was saying this from the start and Arsenal are too far behind to catch up with City and United now.... They could get Champions League but Europa League may not be a bad thing (apart from the matchday fixtures piling up).

Manchester City officials have met up with AC Milan over the transfer of forward Carlos Tevez.
About 80% of the deal is done.... a good deal for Milan.... Tevez obviously does not want to play in England any longer.....

Liverpool have officially completed the signing of teenage prospect (a midfielder) Jordan Ibe from Wycombe.
FACT: He became the youngest ever scorer in Wycombe's history.

Chelsea are launching a bid to sign Juventus winger Milos Krasic.

Wigan are hoping to take striker Federico Macheda on loan from Manchester United.

And the last story:

Stoke are ready to offer £8million for Blackburn's Junior Hoilett.
A very good deal if it goes through.... young prospect with a lot of pace who has shined through at Blackburn so far....

 Interested in this new talent: Stoke
