Football fans were treated to a rare midweek slate of Premier League matches, with this upcoming weekend scheduled for the FA Cup quarterfinals. In yesterday’s matches, the action was quite tense in the games featuring the six highest teams.
For starters, Chelsea required a rare headed goal from attacking midfields Eden Hazard to narrowly make it past West Ham in a 1-0 away victory. Just behind leaders Chelsea, Man City led 1-0 for much of the game Leicester, but finding a second goal was hard to come by. James Milner finally delivered one in the 88th minute for a 2-0 home win.
Arsenal continued the winning trend by beating QPR 2-1 in an away game to hold third place. Man Utd then held on to fourth place after a late Ashley Young goal. Meanwhile, Liverpool held fourth with a 2-0 win against Burnley, while Spurs won 3-2 hosting Swansea.
