Jose Mourinho’s men faced Stoke City at the Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Charlie Adam’s brilliant strike from his own half, is being hailed as the best goal of the season yet, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Blues from picking up all three points. Chelsea won 2 – 1 and are spearheading the title race to clinch it in May after five years.

Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal are in scintillating form. The Gunners defeated Brenedan Rodgers’ Liverpool 4 – 1 at the weekend. Not many would argue with Arsenal’s chances of finishing in top four. With regards to the Champions League spot, the North Londoners have had a great track record. The result at the Emirates on Saturday was a huge blow to Liverpool’s chances of retaining the Champions League spot. The Merseyside giants looked really impressive before losing back-to-back matches. They have now slumped seven points behind the fourth place and now their top four finish seems very unlikely.

Liverpool weren’t the only top side to drop points in this game week. The reigning English champions struggled to beat Crystal Palace over the ninety minutes. The Eagles dealt a severe blow to City’s title contention as the game at Selhurst Park ended 2 – 1 in favor of the hosts. The Citizens have lost five of their last seven competitive matches and the game at Old Trafford on Sunday would be a very crucial one for them. Manchester United climbed up above their neighbors on the EPL table after defeating Aston Villa at home. Van Gaal’s men scored 3 goals in the 3 – 1 win over the Villans. Wayne Rooney showed his class yet again and scored an outstanding goal for the Red Devils.

The teams at the wrong end of the Barclays Premier League table are fighting hard to get out of the relegation zone. Leicester City, who are at the foot of the table, amassed three more points with a win over Sam Allardyce’s West Ham United. With a game in hand, Leicester still have a genuine chance of climbing out of the relegation pit.

QPR also got a massive result at the weekend as they beat West Brom 4 – 1 away from home. There are 21 more potential points to be earned and QPR can certainly ditch the inevitable and stay in the English top division. Burnley earned a point against Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs and they aren’t much far behind Aston Villa. The Villa Park based club should consider it a high time to grab results as they are just two points above the relegation zone.
