Football Rounup: Monday Night

Carlos Tevez
Tevez took his tally to 19 for the season in the Premier League

Carlos Tevez scored a 12-minute hat-trick as Manchester City beat Wigan at Eastlands to keep their chances of a Champions League spot alive. City had been poor before the break and the second-half sending off of Wigan’s Gary Caldwell was the turning point. First Tevez took advantage of a calamitous goalkeeping error from Vladimir Stojkovic to tap home. Two minutes later he slid in at the far post to double the lead before sealing the victory with a superb solo effort. The win leaves City two points behind fourth-placed Tottenham having played the same amount of games, while Wigan remain just four points above the relegation zone.

Football Roundup: Champions League: Bendtner hattrick puts Gunners through; Bayern lose but dramatically go through; Sunderland net first win of 2010 thanks to Bent hattrick; Rangers extend lead at top of SPL to 13 points

Nicklas Bendtner and Samir Nasri

Nicklas Bendtner struck a hat-trick as Arsenal outclassed Porto to overturn a first-leg deficit with ease and clinch a place in the last eight of the Champions League. Bendtner – heavily criticised after a succession of misses in Saturday’s win against Burnley – was a relieved man after a clinical display after Arsene Wenger decided to stick with the Dane for the crucial encounter.

Arjen Robben celebrates scoring in Florence
Robben scored a 30-yard scorcher to put Bayern into the quarter-finals

Football Roundup:Everton thrash Hull; Terry ends tough week by sending Chelsea into FA semis; Superb Aston Villa comeback too good for Reading; Mourinho furios as Inter held

Frank Lampard and John Terry
Lampard hugs Terry after the latter ended a tough week with a goal and an assist

Everton thrashed Hull in the only Premier League game on Sunday. A brace from Arteta, a Garcia own goal and a couple of late strikes from Donovan and Rodwell did the trick for them.

Chelsea stormed into the Semis of the FA Cup with a comfortable win over Stoke. Terry first set up Lampard and then scored himself to give Chelsea the win and end a tough week on a high.

Aston Villa looked certain to be embarrased by Reading as the home side went 2-0 up at the break thanks to a brace from Shane Long. But a spirited second half performance, which saw them score 3 goals in 10 minutes from Ashley Young and Carew, ended up easily beating the hosts with Carew finishing with a hat-trick.

Mourinho was left fuming after his side, who played with 3 up front, failed to score a goal and could manage only a 0-0 draw. Their lead, however, is still 4 points.
