LONDON -- After a difficult introduction to English Premier League management, Bob Bradleys wait for a win is over. Vapormax Mens White Sale Uk .Swanseas players couldnt achieve it the easy way for their trail-blazing American coach.In the sixth game of his reign on Saturday, Swansea tossed away a 3-1 lead against Crystal Palace to head into stoppage time trailing 4-3.Displaying the fighting spirit Swansea has lacked this season, Fernando Llorente found time to score twice and complete a wild 5-4 victory that lifted the south Wales club off the bottom of the standings.Its a crazy match, and its very important for us, Llorente said. We need confidence and this match will help us a lot.It shouldnt have been so tough. After Wilfried Zaha gave Palace an early lead, Gylfi Sigurdssons free kick and Leroy Fers double gave Swansea a 3-1 advantage. But the game unexpectedly swung back in Palaces favor when James Tomkins and Christian Benteke scored either side of Jack Corks own goal in a nine-minute spell.But Llorente, dropped from the squad for last weekends draw at Everton, presented his case for a starting role in the most dramatic fashion.The character of the players came through, Bradley said. Its been a difficult season so far, there have been a lot of things that just didnt bounce the right way.On Saturday they did, but not for Alan Pardew whose Palace side slumped to a sixth successive league and is only out of the relegation zone on goal difference. Swansea climbed off the bottom and is two points from safety.The top of the table is changed after the top three of Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City all won.CHELSEA 1, TOTTENHAM 2Victor Moses had been struggling to settle at Chelsea after joining in 2012, going out on loan to Liverpool, Stoke, and West Ham in search of game time and confidence. Moses has been revitalized with the arrival this season of Antonio Conte, who has deployed him as a wing-back.And Moses made his biggest contribution of the campaign against Tottenham by scoring the winner six minutes into the second half after arriving unmarked into the penalty area to meet Diego Costas cutback.Pedro Rodriguez began Chelseas comeback before halftime, canceling out Christian Eriksens 11th minute strike to end Tottenhams unbeaten start and leave its London rival without a win at Stamford Bridge since 1990.LIVERPOOL 2, SUNDERLAND 0The joy at winning will be tempered by a spell without Philippe Coutinho. The playmaker was carried off on a stretcher in the first half with his right leg in a brace after a challenge with Sunderland midfielder Didier Ndong.It was Coutinhos replacement, Divock Origi, who put Liverpool in front in the 75th minute with a curling shot. James Milner netted Liverpools second from the penalty spot after Ndong tripped Sadio Mane.Sunderland slipped to bottom place.BURNLEY 1, MAN CITY 2Two scrappy goals from Sergio Aguero took the forwards league tally to 10 goals this season. Both were netted inside the six-yard box at Turf Moor, the first canceling out Dean Marneys volley.City remains behind Liverpool on goal difference and a point adrift of leader Chelsea.LEICESTER 2, MIDDLESBROUGH 2Leicester is so confident and lively in the Champions League, where it has progressed to the round of 16, but failing to look like the Premier League champion when back on domestic duty.It took Islam Slimanis stoppage-time penalty to avoid a third successive league loss but it still left Leicester only two points above the relegation zone with one win in eight.Riyad Mahrez also scored from the penalty spot either side of Alvaro Negredos double for Middlesbrough that ended a goal drought stretching back to the first weekend of the season.HULL 1, WEST BROM 1West Bromwich Albion was denied a third straight league win after Hull captain Michael Dawson canceled out Gareth McAuleys header.
