With the final English Premier League games of 2012 all completed, here are some of the big winners and losers from the final round of games.
Rafa Benitez (Chelsea)
Chelsea’s interim manager took his in-form team to the always difficult Goodison Park to face an Everton side who are breathing down their neck in the race for a top 4 slot, and who were previously unbeaten at home for 9 months. After a tough grilling by David Moyes’ men in the first half, Benitez changed tactics and with two goals from captain Frank Lampard, was able to secure a vital 3 points in their quest to remain in the race for the title.
Theo Walcott (Arsenal)
