Fulham 3 – Burnley 0 (Premier League, February 9, 2010) Danny Murphy opened the scoring for the home side, David Elm doubled their advantage on just his second start for Roy Hodgson, and Bobby Zamora put the icing on the cake for Roy Hodgson’s side wit a third in the second.

Wigan 1 – Stoke 1 (Premier League, February 9, 2010) Wigan went ahead through Paul Scharner after quarter of an hour, but Tuncay’s header pulled Stoke level.
Portsmouth 1 – Sunderland 1 (Premier League, February 9, 2010) Portsmouth went behind to a Darren Bent penalty after nine minutes, and were down to ten men in bizarre circumstances – referee Kevin Friend initially showed a red card to Hassan Yebda, before realising it was Ricardo Rocha who had tripped Bent. The numbers were even after 53 minutes when Lee Cattermole was shown a second yellow for a crunching tackle on Basinas and David Meyler, who had only been on the pitch for two minutes, was shown a straight red with three minutes remaining. Aruna Dindane scored a last gasp equaliser for Pompey.
