Premier League leaders Chelsea took a step closer to the title on a weekend which saw Sunderland’s ten-year stay in the top-flight come to an end.
Antonio Conte’s Blues eased past Ronald Koeman’s Everton 3-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday to temporarily move seven points clear of Tottenham, yet Mauricio Pochettino’s men responded in perfect fashion with a routine 2-0 win over North London rivals Arsenal at White Hart Lane.
And it means that, with just four games of the season remaining, the gap between the top two is just four points, yet Spurs will have the chance to cut that gap again with victory over West Ham on Friday night.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool consolidated their place in the top four with a 1-0 success over Watford on Monday night, Emre Can netting a goal of the season contender at Vicarage Road, while fourth place Manchester City dropped points away at struggling Middlesbrough, drawing 2-2 at the Riverside Stadium.
Neighbours Manchester United also failed to grab all three points on Sunday after drawing at home to Swansea, their tenth draw of the campaign at Old Trafford this term, while the aforementioned defeats for Arsenal and Everton has all but ended their top four challenges.
At the bottom, Sunderland were officially relegated from the top-flight after their defeat at home to Bournemouth, coupled with Hull’s 0-0 draw at Southampton, saw them fall 13 points adrift with just four games of the campaign remaining.
However, there were huge victories for Leicester and Burnley in their quest to avoid the drop, beating West Brom and Crystal Palace respectively on Saturday, while the other clash of the weekend saw Stoke and West Ham play out a bore draw at the bet365 Stadium.
