Liverpool on top of the EPL thanks to Chelsea knocking off Man City. A long way still to go but this is there best chance to finally break their 30-year league title drought.

The Scousers had a chance to put one hand on the trophy last night and knock out Man City but blew it. Wonder if that loss will come back to bite them.

bit harsh to say they blew it, hit the post & then had a goal disallowed by goal line tech , literally millimeters in it

Moreso defensively. By Liverpool standards this season, they were two soft goals conceded.

City cough cough. Newcastle had something like only 23% possession of the ball yet still won :o.

I'm not his biggest fan but credit where it's due to Craig Foster for leading the charge to free Hakeem al-Araibi.

Lucky to get a point. West Ham should have won that game if not for a dodgy offside call.

Liverpool's test will be more up against Man U. Games like this, against an archrival & when they need to respond to Man City's challenge, are hard fought and won by those teams that go onto to win a title.

What a bizarre game between Leeds and Aston Villa.

A Villa player went down injured. Most of the players stopped expecting Leeds to kick the ball out. However, one Leeds player decides otherwise and runs the ball up and kicks a goal from outside the box. Next thing there's an all-in and a Villa player is red carded. Leeds' captain feels guilty and after consulting with his manager decides to make the team play dead and let Villa kick a goal to even up the score again.

Spurs can thank the Gunners and ManU both choking overnight for securing their CL spot. Very lucky after their two red card implosion loss to Bournemouth.

At the other end of the table, Cardiff relegated along with Fulham and Huddersfield. So Mat Ryan's Brighton survived the drop. Not sure what Aaron Mooy will do with Huddersfield going down.

Norwich and Sheffield Utd will play EPL next season. The remaining promotion spot is down to Leeds, WBA, Villa or Derby.

What a goal.

One game left. Looks like Liverpool might have to keep walking for another year unless city drop to Burnley
