Messi, Neymar lead Barca
past Celta, Valdes hurt
Lionel Messi and Neymar helped Barcelona pro-
visionally take the lead of the Spanish league yes-
terday, but the 3-0 win over Celta Vigo came at
the cost of goalkeeper Victor Valdes being taken
off with a leg injury.
Valdes' right knee buckled after a routine save
in the 22nd minute, and he had to be shuttled off
the Camp Nou pitch with his gloved hands cover-
ing his face. The club says Valdes was taken to
hospital for tests to determine the severity of the
Neymar scored twice from passes by Alexis
Sanchez. The Brazil striker opened the scoring in
the sixth minute and struck again in the 67th after
Messi recorded his 22nd league goal of the season
on the half-hour mark.
The win came four days after Barcelona's
thrilling 4-3 win at Madrid and lifted it two points
ahead of its fierce rivals and Atletico Madrid, who
both play later.
Also, Rayo Vallecano beat Osasuna 1-0 thanks
to Joaquin Lavirrey's 90th-minute penalty for its
fourth win in five rounds to edge away from the
relegation zone. (AP)
Liverpool earns nervy
2-1 win over Sunderland
Liverpool moved to within a point of Premier
League leader Chelsea with a nervy 2-1 win over
Sunderland that was sealed by goals from Steven
Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge yesterday.
Ki Sung-yeung's 76th-minute header for relega-
tion-threatened Sunderland ensured a tense finish
at Anfield, with Liverpool forced to hang on to
stay in strong contention for a first league title
Gerrard's 25-meter free kick in the 39th gave
the hosts a 1-0 lead at the break and it looked like
they would saunter to victory after Sturridge's de-
flected goal in the 48th. It did not turn out that
Liverpool's seventh straight league win lifted
the team two points above Manchester City,
which has two games in hand.
Meanwhile, West Ham ended a three-game los-
ing streak as an own-goal by James Chester se-
cured a 2-1 win over 10-man Hull that lifts the
hosts firmly into mid-table in the Premier League.
Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor was shown a
straight red card after charging into Mo Diame
midway through the first half and Mark Noble dis-
patched the resulting penalty to give West Ham
Hull equalised through Nikica Jelavic in the 48th
before Chester's own goal gifted the Hammers a
much-needed three points. (AP)
