QPR defender, Nelsen beats Chelsea’s Fernando Torres to the header


QPR snatched a stunning win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge through a late Shaun Wright-Phillips strike, even as reports out of the Blues late Wednesday indicated that a deal has been down with Newcastle striker, Demba Ba.

The Premier League's bottom side broke the deadlock when Wright-Phillips fired home from the edge of the area after a corner was only half cleared.

Chelsea, chasing a fifth straight win, dominated throughout but could not break down QPR's packed defence.

Frank Lampard had a goal ruled out for offside and the Blues' best effort saw Julio Cesar deny Fernando Torres.

And at Anfield, Luis Suarez took his Premier League tally to 15 goals for the season by scoring twice to help Liverpool ease to victory against Sunderland.

Watched on by new signing Daniel Sturridge, Raheem Sterling's lobbed goal gave Liverpool an early lead.

Suarez doubled Liverpool's advantage soon after, racing into the area before stabbing the ball home.

The Uruguayan then made it 3-0 early in the second half with a close range strike from Steven Gerrard's pass.

The win means Liverpool recorded back-to-back victories for the first time this season, while for Sunderland it was their second successive defeat following the 2-1 loss to Tottenham at the weekend.

And in the final game of the evening, Newcastle woes continued after they lost their ninth game in their last 11 fixtures going down 2-1 to Everton, even though they had scored first.
