Jermain Defoe and Daniel Sturridge both in the goals on Sunday
England hitman Jermain Defoe scored a stunning goal to help Tottenham Hotspur come from behind and beat Manchester City 3-1.
Defoe's strike was sandwiched by Clint Dempsey and Gareth Bale efforts during a seven-minute spell in the second half and helps keep his side in the hunt for a top-four finish.
Samir Nasri had put City ahead early on as they tried to close the gap on Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table.
"Before the game we knew it would be difficult against a great team, but we showed great character at the end. Everyone dug in," said Defoe.
"As a forward, you want to score goals. The most important thing is to get the three points, and if you can score a goal as well, as a striker that is fantastic."
Spurs also fielded England's Michael Dawson, Scott Parker and Kyle Walker, with Tom Huddlestone and Defoe coming off the bench to inspire a late revival.
Manchester City had England keeper Joe Hart in goal, but there was nothing he could not about the late goals that handed Spurs three points. Gareth Barry played the whole game for City but James Milner was replaced at half-time.
At Anfield, Liverpool - led by England captain Steven Gerrard - drew 2-2 with Chelsea thanks to a late goal from Luis Suarez.
But it was Three Lions forward Daniel Sturridge who played a big part in the game with a goal and an assist.
He came on as a second half substitute and made an immediate impact. He hit the post with his first effort on goal and scored a superb equaliser with his second - finishing off a chipped pass from team mate Suarez.
Chelsea, who had gone ahead through Oscar, then made it 2-1 through an Eden Hazard penalty. But Sturridge's cross set up Suarez to score in the 96th minute and make it 2-2.
Liverpool also had Under-21 skipper Jordan Henderson in their side while the visitors introduced Frank Lampard late in the second half.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers raved about Sturridge's impact: "It was a terrific game, and once again the team showed their personality to keep on going until the end.
"In the first half we had no intensity to our game, with too many loose passes. Daniel Sturridge changed it when he came on at the start of the second half, the minute he came on he was incredible.
"His passing, movement, goal and pressing were phenomenal."
