What a crazy weekend in the EPL

All I can say is wow. It seems all the top teams ran out of steam at the end of the year.

Manchester United going down 2 – 3 to Blackburn, who live at the opposite end of the table. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, ManU does this every season at least once.

Aston Villa getting past Chelsea 3 – 1, a bit of a shock, but Villa has always been able to shake up the top teams when needed.

Swansea tying up Tottenham with a 1 – 1 draw, just slowing down the pace the Spurs are going at, which is aiming for that top spot in the table.

And the match that I predicted the outcome for on Bookface, Sunderland shocked City (Manchester City that is) with a 1 – 0 win at home. This helped keep United level with City in points, and leaving it all to goal differential, where City holds a lead of 5.

Now with Arsenal’s 2 – 1 lose to Fulham today, Chelsea have slipped back into the top 4, and a guaranteed spot in the Champions League next season, with Arsenal sliping down to 5th spot in the table.
