The Premier League rarely fails to deliver these days and the weekend just gone was yet another filled with drama, controversy, goals and fine football.
Chelsea and Arsenal kicked off proceedings with a vital clash that saw the Blues eliminate yet another one of their competitors for the title in a 3-1 affair at Stamford Bridge, although without extending their nine-point lead at the Premier League’s summit.
Then game a batch of goal-grabbing 3pms, not least including Hull City claiming a shock 2-0 win over Liverpool, Everton beating Bournemouth in a nine-goal thriller and Sunderland absolutely annihilating Crystal Palace 4-0 at Selhurst Park to leave the Eagles stuck in the relegation zone.
Sunday didn’t disappoint either as Manchester City left it late against Swansea and Manchester United steamrolled reigning champions Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
