Barclays Premier League Round-Up – Gameweek 35

Title Race

There were more twists and turns in the Premiership this weekend as we saw the title race being blown wide open once again. Manchester United and Everton contested in an eight goal thriller at Old Trafford.  Despite United being 4-2 up with less than 10 minutes of play left, Everton pushed on and got an 85th minute equaliser through Pienaar.

Elsewhere, Man City made it three wins on the trot against now relegated Wolves. Goals from Aguero and Nasri moves them to within three points of their rivals Man United. The top two will meet each other in the Manchester derby next Monday at the Etihad Stadium in a fixture which will have a huge say on where the title will be lifted come the end of the season.

Relegation Battle

Wolves become the first side to go down this season following a 2-0 loss at the hands of Man City. It doesn’t come as a surprise to most people that they have been relegated although some wonder where they would be if McCarthy was left in charge.

Q.P.R boosted their chances of survival with a vital 1-0 win over London rivals Spurs. They now sit three points ahead of the relegation zone.

Before kick-off Blackburn Rovers fans staged a protest march and displayed ‘Kean Out’ banners throughout the game, despite this Blackburn went on to beat Norwich 2-0. Will the Premiership winners of the 1994/95 season be playing Championship football next season?

A battling Wigan were narrowly beaten 2-1 by Fulham at Craven Cottage.  Aston Villa played out a 0-0 draw with Sunderland and Bolton also picked up a point at home to Swansea.  Aston Villa and Bolton play each other Tuesday night in a six-pointer at Villa Park.

Karl Henry and Stephen Ward applaud their fans.

European Spots

Newcastle keep their run of form going as they pick up yet another win and move into fourth place. A brace by Yohan Cabaye contributed to Newcastle’s 3-0 win over Stoke. The Magpies seem to be many people’s favourites to take the last Champions League spot.

Tottenham’s poor run of form continues as they slipped up to Q.P.R. With only two wins in their last ten Premier League games, Spurs season has gone from what looked like a third place finish and Champions League football to a quite disappointing one.

Arsenal and Chelsea faced each other in a pretty uneventful clash, it finished 0-0. Arsenal find themselves in third place, they will be confident that they can remain there come the last day of the season. However, Chelsea will the happier of the two after coming back from the Emirates with a point. They are four points off Newcastle as it stands. Can Roberto Di Matteo’s Chelsea make the push for a Champions League spot?
