Manchester City moved into second place in the Premiership following a win over Spurs, while John Terry scored on his return in a draw with Liverpool.

At Stamford Bridge, Terry glanced home Juan Mata’s corner to break the deadlock and claim his 50th goal in Chelsea’s colours, but the former England defender did not make it to halftime, as he was stretched off following a collision with Suarez, which saw him damage his knee. Liverpool left it late for the equalizer as Suarez nodded the ball in giving them a share of the points.

It was Liverpool’s third consecutive draw and left Brendan Rodgers’ side in 13th place, while Chelsea dropped to third.

Dzeko’s late strike gave City victory over Spurs at the Etihad Stadium, as Roberto Mancini’s side emulated United’s 3-2 win at Aston Villa on Saturday by coming from behind to win. City trailed to Steven Caulker’s 21st-minute opener but drew level through Sergio Aguero in the second half before Dzeko struck late on to close the gap on United to two points alone in second place.

In the day’s other game, Kevin Nolan returned to haunt former club Newcastle United by scoring the only goal of the game as West Ham United won 1-0 at St James’ Park to climb into the top six.
