Updated: February 23, 2014


Chelsea, Arsenal, and City all registered wins on Saturday leaving only 3 points separating the clubs at the top of the league table.

A first half brace by Oliver Giroud helped the Gunners bounce back from their midweek hiding at the hands of Bayern Munich. In a superb display Arsenal ran away with a comfortable 4-1 win over Sunderland.

Chelsea left it late on Saturday as a John Terry goal in the third minute of stoppage time propelled the Blues to a 1-0 victory over Everton at Stamford Bridge.

With the ink still drying on his new contract, Wayne Rooney scored a spectacular second-half goal  as Manchester United earned a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

Nikica Jelavic scored on either side of the break as Hull City rolled to a 4-0 thrashing of Cardiff City at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Yaya Toure’s strike 20 minutes from time was enough to lift Manchester City to a 1-0 victory over Stoke City at the Etihad Stadium.

Matej Vydra’s goal four minutes from time rescued an important point for West Bromwich Albion in a 1-1 draw with Fulham at The Hawthorns and  West Ham United earned a fourth consecutive victory in Premier League play after a 3-1 result over Southampton at Upton Park.
