EPL Week 21

Man Utd vs Leicester: remember the last time both teams met?  the Foxes thrashed the Red Devils 5-3 after being 2-0 down. Since then, the Foxes could not lift themselves from the bottom of the table.
In this match, Utd brought out all the big guns. They led comfortably by 3-0 at half time and then switched off for the rest to allow the Foxes a consolation goal. The team failed to show the dominance and swagger of the past teams though this was a game against the bottom dwellers.

Chelsea vs Man City: both teams suffered embarrassing defeat against lower ranked opponents in the FA cup last week. Chelsea recovered somewhat when they narrowly beat Liverpool 1-0 in the Capital Cup semifinal during midweek.
Jose Mourinho's plan worked to perfection ie avoid defeat against the immediate challenger to maintain the 5 points cushion. Though playing at home, the Blues played with little adventure as caution was the name. Ended 1-1. Pellegrini took a swipe at Mourinho by implying that his side could win the title 'in style'

Liverpool vs West Ham: Liverpool must get over the disappointment of losing in the Capital Cup semifinal.
Daniel Sturridge came back from a 5 month injury to score a goal for in-form Reds. Sterling scored the other.

Arsenal vs Villa: 5-0 A thrashing for Lambert's woeful Villians. The Gunners are starting to talk about the title after this big win.

WBA vs Spurs    Spurs is on a high after reaching the final of the Capital Cup competition. They won easily at the Hawthorns, 2-0

Southampton lost unexpectedly to Swansea, 1-0
