Yesterday’s match results started in shocking fashion with Arsenal delivering a 4-1 demolition of Liverpool in a 12:45 encounter. Only a 76th minute penalty from Jordan Henderson prevented Liverpool from going out without a whimper. This is likely a fatal blow for Liverpool’s hopes of Champions League qualification.
Liverpool’s loss guaranteed that Man Utd would maintain at least a five-point lead ahead of their 15:00 clash with Aston Villa. Man Utd were not quite as effective as in their recent victories over Tottenham and Liverpool, but they still came through with a 3-1 win. The Reds are now in third and hold an eight-point lead ahead of Liverpool.
In other results, Chelsea are in first place and eight points ahead of Arsenal after beating Stoke 2-1. QPR managed a rare 4-1 away victory versus West Brom, while Everton surprised many by overcoming Southampton to win 1-0.
