Premier League Results

The Premier League Title see-saw begins

It was a day of some surprises in English Premier League results as the see-saw battle for the title swung back Arsenal's way.

Biggest surprise of the day was Manchester United's 2-1 loss away to West Ham, with Christiano Ronaldo missing a penalty.

Another surprise result was Arsenal's 4-1 win at Everton. A great result given Evertons recent form. By all accounts the scoreline didnt reflect the game, but some great finishing by Eduardo da Silva saw off a spirited Everton.

Chelsea heaped more misery on Sam Allardyce's Newcastle, winning 2-1 at Stamford Bridge. Newcastle's performance was vastly improved but they couldn't hold out, and Kalou netted a late winner.

In other Premier League results Sunderland had a great 3-1 win at home to Bolton, while Aston Villa continued their good form, winning 2-1 at Wigan. Tottenham and Reading had a go at taking back the mantle for Premier League's best game from Chelsea and Aston Villa, sharing an amazing ten goals in a game Tottenham won 6-4!

At the top of the Premier League table, Arsenal are leading by two points from Manchester United with Chelsea and Liverpool six and eleven points behind respectively, though Liverpool have two games in hand.

At the bottom in the Premier League drop zone, Sunderland are now out of the bottom three, with Wigan and Fulham joining Derby in the dreaded bottom three spots. Wigan in particular look in freefall and with a trip to Liverpool to come, its not looking good.
