Newcastle 3, West Ham 1

The Magpies’ convincing victory over West Ham ended a four-match losing streak, but more importantly, it keeps them in the conversation for the European race.

Yohan Cabaye netted a brace, while Loic Remy added to his season tally, and Newcastle gained a little separation from Southampton, who sit directly below them in the table.

 

Arsenal 2, Fulham 0

With their 2-0 victory, the Gunners ensure that they will remain atop the table for another week. With the way Manchester City are playing, Arsenal may not hold onto first place for much longer, but they hold pole position for at least one more week.

Arsene Wenger’s side struggled to generate many scoring chances in the first half, but Santiago Cazorla broke the deadlock midway through the second half.

Cazorla then finished the job just five minutes later to give the Gunners a victory that was closer than the final score suggests.

 

Crystal Palace 1, Stoke City 0

Crystal Palace’s 1-0 win over Stoke City may not have huge repercussions at the top of the table, but it was of enormous importance to Palace.

Jason Puncheon's goal lifted his team out of last place and out of the relegation zone completely. There is still plenty of time to fall back into the bottom three, but Palace are all smiles this week.

 

Manchester City 4, Cardiff City 2

Manchester City are still in second place, but their performance against Cardiff City was dominant, and they look poised to take the top spot any week now.

The Citizens are the hottest team in the EPL, winning their last six matches behind an offensive juggernaut.

Four players found the back of the net for Man City, and the attack is firing on all cylinders at the moment.

City still needs to wait for the Gunners to stumble to ascend to first place, but the win keeps them right on Arsenal’s tail.
