Premier League Update

A day that featured 7 matches saw little change at the top of the Premier league table. Chelsea, Arsenal, Man City are still one, two, three respectively, and Liverpool sits at 4th, 6 points behind Chelsea and 3 points ahead of Tottenham.

Although tied with Everton at 45 points, Man United moved up one place to 6th, by virtue of goal differential, after defeating a motivated Crystal Palace.

Arsenal took it to a hapless Sunderland side --- which now sits at 24 points in the relegation zone --- and cruised to a 4-1 victory. That put them one point behind Chelsea and two ahead of Man City. It was a good win, but if the Gunners truly want to take the league title, they have to show a similar form against the big teams.

Chelsea tops the table, but looks less impressive with each passing week. The Blues could only manage a 1-0 win against Everton --- and it took them 93 minutes to do so.

Man City has also slowed its roll ever so slightly. It could only pull off a 70th-minute, 1-0 win over relegation teasers Stoke City. Perhaps the Citizens are missing Sergio Aguero?

Tomorrow's matches could see some interesting movement in the table. Liverpool faces Swansea City at Anfield --- a win would pull the Reds within a point of Man City; Tottenham looks to make a move on Liverpool as it squares off against Norwich at Carrow Road; and Aston Villa will try to create more distance between itself and the relegation zone with a match against Newcastle United at St. James' Park.

I hope you'll be watching the matches. I have to work during the day. So, I'll take in the highlights on BBC's Match of the Day 2.
