Liverpul nastavlja da prati Mančester junajted. Ubedljivim trijumfom na gostovanju Vest Hemu, tim Rafe Beniteza se izjednačio na vrhu tabele Premijer lige sa aktuelnim šampionom.
Obe ekipe imaju po 80 bodova, ali Mančester junajted ima dve utakmice manje.
Na "Apton parku" nije bilo dileme. Već u drugom minutu kapiten gostiju Stiven Džerard je nagovestio epilog. Isti igrač je odagnao sve sumnje u uspeh Liverpula drugim golom već u 34. minutu.
Pobedu je samo potvrdio Rajan Babel u finišu meča.
"Crveni đavoli" u nedelju imaju priliku da se posle derbija Mančestera ponovo odlepe na tabeli. Ništa manje zanimljiv neće biti ni londonski derbi, između Arsenala i Čelsija.
Fudbaleri Vest Bromvič Albiona još nisu odustali od opstanka u Premijer ligi, a odluka o tome ko će ispasti u Čempionšip odložena je do narednog vikenda.
Poslednjeplasirani tim na tabeli je u meču 36. kola na svom terenu savladao Vigan 3:1 i tako zadržao nadu u opstanak, a situaciju na dnu dodatno je zakomplikovao poraz Hala od Stouka (1:2) na domaćem terenu.
U poslednja dva kola za opstanak će se boriti VBA, Sanderlend, Hal, Njukasl i Midlsbro, ali i Portsmut, ukoliko duel "svraka" i Midlzbroa u ponedeljak ne završi podelom bodova.
Vest Bromvič je već u subotu mogao da se oprosti od Premijer lige, da je izgubio od Vigana, a Hal osvojio najmanje bod protiv Stouka, ali umesto toga "fenjeraš" je uhvatio slamku spasa koju mu je pružio upravo Hal.
Dvostruki strelac Francuz Mark-Antoan Fortun i Kris Brant doneli su trijumf nekadašnjem šampionu Engleske i petostrukom osvajaču FA kupa.
U "dobitnike kola" spada i Blekburn, koji je golovima Pedersena i Mekartija, savladao direktnog konkurenta u borbi za opstanak, Sanderlend.
