Fernando Torres 59

Fernando Torres 62

Fernando Torres' second half double handed Liverpool a 2-0 win in the 208th Merseyside derby at Everton.

The Spanish hotshot grabbed his first goal after 59 minutes as he volleyed home a pinpoint cross from Robbie Keane.

Torres doubled the lead just three minutes later when he smashed the ball past Tim Howard from close range.

El Niño then thought he had bagged a hat-trick but his effort was denied by referee Mike Riley.

And it went from bad to worst for the Toffees when Tim Cahill was sent off ten minutes from time, following a rough challenge on Xabi Alonso.

Wayne Rooney 77

Defending champions Manchester United got back to winning ways with a 2-0 home win over Bolton, but the talking point was the penalty referee Rob Styles awarded for the opening goal.

On 60 minutes, Jlloyd Samuel made a superbly-timed tackle to cut the ball off Cristiano Ronaldo in the area but Styles saw it differently and pointed to the spot.

Ronaldo himself took the controversial spot-kick and registered his first league goal of the season.

Wayne Rooney came off the bench for Carlos Tévez on 71 minutes to notch his first goal for United since April six minutes later.

Chelsea back on top of Premier League table after a 2-0 win at Stoke.

The Blues took the lead on 36 minutes when a superb Chelsea move concluded with fullback José Bosingwa firing home his first goal for the club from an acute angle.

With just 13 minutes left, the former Porto right-back set up the second for Nicolas Anelka to reclaim pole position in the Premier League's title battle.
