Manchester rises to third
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 01 - 02 - 2015

MANCHESTER — Radamel Falcao scored only his fourth goal for Manchester United in a 3-1 victory over Leicester in the English Premier League Saturday.
The striker, who is on loan until the end of the season from Monaco, scored between Robin van Persie's first goal since last month and Wes Morgan's own goal.
Marcin Wasilewski scored in the second half, but the Foxes were unable to pull off another great comeback like they did in the reverse fixture last September, which they won 5-3.
While Leicester remained bottom, United provisionally rose to third in the league above Southampton, which host Swansea Sunday.
Daniel Sturridge put nearly five months of injury frustration behind him by coming off the bench to score in Liverpool's 2-0 win at home to West Ham.
Tottenham Hotspur completed a fine week with a 3-0 win away to West Bromwich Albion where Harry Kane scored twice to take his tally for the season to an impressive 20 goals.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace saw a run of four successive wins in all competitions since manager Alan Pardew arrived from Newcastle ended with a 1-0 loss to Everton at Selhurst Park.
Second-bottom Queens Park Rangers' dreadful away record continued as it suffered an 11th straight league defeat on the road with a 3-1 loss to former manager Mark Hughes' Stoke City side as Potters forward Jonathan Walters scored his first top-flight hat-trick.
QPR's run of 10 successive away defeats was already a Premier League record and it fell behind at the Britannia Stadium when Walters capitalized on poor defending in the 21st minute.
Jermain Defoe scored his first goal since returning to English football from Toronto as he netted Sunderland's second in a 2-0 win at home to Burnley after Connor Wickham put the Black Cats ahead.
Saturday's early kick-off saw John Carver enjoy his first win as Newcastle boss after a 3-0 success away to Hull ended a run of four games without a victory since Pardew's exit.
Wolfsburg routs Bayern
Wolfsburg routed Bayern Munich 4-1 Friday to hand the Bundesliga leader its first defeat of the league season in the first game after the winter break.
Dutch forward Bas Dost scored twice in the first half and Belgian midfielder Kevin de Bruyne scored twice in the second as Wolfsburg racked up as many goals as Bayern had conceded in the entire first half of the season.
Juan Bernat scored Bayern's sole response in the 55th minute, two minutes after De Bruyne claimed his first.
PSG beats Rennes
Paris Saint-Germain striker Ezequiel Lavezzi scored one of the best goals of the season so far in a 1-0 win over Rennes that lifted the defending champion within one point of French league leader Lyon Friday. — Agencies
