What a weekend we had in English Premier League – tight games, touch matches, late goals, dropped points…there was so much action everywhere. We look back at what transpired on Matchday 14.

Manchester City 1 – 3 Chelsea

In a clash of the top, Chelsea underlined its growing ascendancy by condemning Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to a 3-1 loss at home. It was a feisty encounter which ended with City receiving two red cards – Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho. The Blues now look huge favorites to win the title while City have a lot to look at.


Sunderland 2 – 1 Leicester City

David Moyes’ team moved off the bottom of the table by beating Champions Leicester. Their third win in four matches now moves them to just two points off Leicester. Importantly for Sunderland, there is a growing belief that they can now move steer off relegation. For the Foxes – the alarm bells are about to ring.

Tottenham 5 – 0 Swansea

Spurs consolidated their grip on the top five by romping to a comfortable victory at home over the struggling Swansea. It was just their second win in the last 11 matches across competitions – one that they badly needed.

Crystal Palace 3 – 0 Southampton

If Alan Pardew remains as the Eagles boss at the end of the season, he would look back at this match as the turning point. A brace from Christian Benteke gave Palace a much-needed three points and breathing space for his boss. With so tight in the bottom half, Palace would do well to build up from this result.

Stoke City 2 – 0 Burnley

Not long ago, the Potters were in relegation battle and Mark Hughes was being touted as the next manager to leave. But five wins in seven games meant that Stoke are now in the top half of the table. For Burnley, it’s not yet a cause of concern but this is a third successive defeat.

West Brom 3 – 1 Watford

Tony Pulis’ troubles off the pitch had little effect on his team as the Baggies secured a third win in four matches and rise up to seventh in the standings. It was a tight encounter nevertheless which saw the visitors end up with ten men.

West Ham 1 – 5 Arsenal

With so much talk around his retirement, the serene Arsene Wenger saw his side notch up another nonchalant win. Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil looked in great form and the Gunners look good to mount a title challenge.

Bournemouth 4 – 3 Liverpool

Easily the game of the weekend! Trailing 3-1 against a confident Liverpool side, it looked downhill for the Cherries but the end result stunned the Reds. Eddie Howe will hope to build from here on.

Everton 1 – 1 Manchester United

Maraoune Fellaini won a point for Everton in the dying minutes – sadly for United, it was a dreadful penalty conceded by their former Everton midfielder. Jose Mourinho is fast running out of excuses and United continue to remain in the wilderness.
