Friday 23 April

Arsenal 0-1 Everton

An error from Bernd Leno saw Arsenal slip to defeat to Everton on an evening where home fans marched on the Emirates Stadium to protest against the club’s owners.

The action on the pitch did not rival the pre-match protests, which included fireworks that were missing for large parts of the match itself.

But Everton would leave north London with all three points after goalkeeper Leno turned a Richarlison cross into his own goal to give the Toffees a 1-0 win, their first victory in seven games across all competitions.

Liverpool 1-1 Newcastle

Newcastle midfielder Joe Willock snatched a 1-1 draw against Liverpool at Anfield with a goal in injury time.

An extra minute was added for a VAR decision which had ruled out a Callum Wilson goal in stoppage time and on-loan Arsenal man Willock took full advantage.

The unconvincing performance did little for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp’s hopes of restoring the club’s battered reputation in the wake of the Super League controversy and even less for their top-four aspirations.

West Ham 0-1 Chelsea

Chelsea edged ahead in the race for the top four with a 1-0 victory over fellow Champions League hopefuls West Ham.

A rare goal from Timo Werner, only his second in the league since November, saw the Blues move three points clear of their fifth-placed hosts.

It was hardly Super League stuff from Thomas Tuchel’s side, but they got the job done ahead of a genuine European showdown against Real Madrid on Tuesday night.

Sheffield United 1-0 Brighton

Relegated Sheffield United won only their fifth Premier League game of the season to ensure Brighton continue to sweat over their top-flight future.

The Blades’ fate was sealed with defeat at Wolves a week ago but they responded with a 1-0 victory at Bramall Lane on Saturday night, courtesy of David McGoldrick’s first-half strike.

It was Paul Heckingbottom’s first points as interim manager since replacing Chris Wilder last month and, after calling for an upturn in results in order to take some sort of momentum into next season, he will have been pleased with much of what he saw from his side.

Wolves 0-4 Burnley

Chris Wood scored his first Premier League hat-trick as Burnley blew Wolves away with a dominant first-half performance at Molineux to take a giant step towards survival.

All of Wood’s goals in a 4-0 win came before half time during an opening 45 minutes where it was abundantly clear one team was driven by the hunger and desire of something to play for, and the other was not.

Wolves, who have known for much of the season that their fate would probably be mid-table obscurity, improved marginally in the second half in the sense that they only conceded one more goal when Ashley Westwood struck five minutes from time.

Leeds 0-0 Manchester United

Aston Villa 2-2 West Brom

Keinan Davis pushed West Brom closer to the drop after his late leveller denied the Baggies a derby win at Aston Villa.

The striker’s injury-time goal – after Kyle Bartley’s mistake – earned Villa a 2-2 draw to stop Albion claiming another priceless victory.

Time is running out and the second-bottom Baggies are nine points from Premier League safety with five games left.

Tyrone Mings’ own goal looked like earning Sam Allardyce’s side a third win in four games after Matheus Pereira’s penalty had cancelled out Anwar El Ghazi’s spot-kick.

Despite the point, Villa’s season – which once threatened European qualification – is now fading into mid-table obscurity without injured skipper Jack Grealish and they have won just two of the 10 games he has missed.

Leicester v Crystal Palace, 8pm on NOW via BT TV

Matchday 33 ends at the King Power where Crystal Palace visit Leicester on Monday night as speculation around Brendan Rodgers' future continues.

The Northern Irishman has been touted as a potential replacement for Jose Mourinho after the Portuguese boss was dismissed this week.

Yet Rodgers, who worked under Mourinho at Chelsea, insisted he remains "very happy" at Leicester after leading The Foxes to a first FA Cup final since 1969 by seeing off Southampton in Sunday's semi-final.

Leicester must turn their attentions back to the Premier League though where they are in a battle to secure a place in the Champions League qualification places.

The Foxes can edge closer to sealing the top-four spot with a win over a Palace side who don't have a great deal to play for in what remains of the campaign.

And with Kelechi Iheanacho on a run of 10 goals in seven games, Rodgers will hope the Nigerian can fire his men to victory and down the Eagles.
