Premier League Saturday Wrap: Liverpool Win Easy; Manchester City Win Ugly

It's Week 23 of the Premier League, and we have one of the most important footballing weekends of the season.

With Tottenham Hotspur taking on Manchester United in a clash of the Premier League's two form teams and Spurs' Champions League rivals Chelsea and Arsenal facing each other at Stamford Bridge, the focus on Saturday was firmly on Manchester City's chase of United and the ever-interesting relegation battle.

The Citizens would have the very real chance to reduce their deficit to the Red Devils by four points, but only if they beat Fulham at Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool, Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge took on a Norwich City side who have conceded eight goals in their last two games against the Reds. Could Liverpool hammer them again?

Loic Remy, in one of the Premier League's more prominent debuts, would travel to West Ham United with his new team, Queens Park Rangers, firmly intent on bridging their four-point gap with Wigan Athletic at the bottom of the table.

For their part, the Latics welcomed a rapidly improving Sunderland side, and their 5,000 travelling support without the injured and influential Ivan Ramis. Would the loss of the Spaniard combined with the Rangers' capture of Remy leave Wigan in trouble?

Elsewhere, Newcastle, smarting from Remy choosing Rangers and London over the North East, saw Reading, hot off the back of last week's amazing comeback against West Brom, come to town.

Swansea City, with one eye on their midweek League Cup semifinal clash with Chelsea, went into battle against Stoke City, who were coming off the back of their worst result of the season—a 4-0 home loss to Chelsea.

The return of the late kickoff then saw struggling Aston Villa make the short journey to the Hawthornes, where the equally struggling West Bromwich Albion lay in wait.

Put everything together and it promised to be another amazing Premier League weekend.
