ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE WRAP-UP

It was a nice weekend for the Nigerian trio of Osaze Odemwingie, Victor Anichebe, and Odion Ighalo as the players enjoyed away wins with their respective clubs in the English Premier League games played on Saturday.
While the duo of Anichebe and Ighalo played varying part in their team’s result, Odemwingie watched from the bench as his team Stoke City whipped AFC Bournemouth 1-3.
Anichebe came in as second half substitute as West Brom beat his former club, Everton, by a lone goal.
Ighalo on his part played all 90 minutes as Watford piped Crystal Palace 1-2. Former African footballer of the year, Emmanuel Adebayor, scored the only goal for Palace, but his effort was not enough to save the day.
In other games, Victor Moses and Emmanuel Emenike, came in as second half substitutes to help West Ham to a 2-2 draw away to Norwich City.
Elsewhere, Sunderland defeated Manchester United 2-1 to pile more pressure on manager Louis van Gaal amid rumors of the imminent arrival of Jose Mourinho.
Full results

PREMIER LEAGUE
Sunderland 2 – 1 Manchester United
Chelsea 5 – 1 Newcastle United
Norwich 2 – 2 West Ham
Swansea City 0 – 1 Southampton
AFC Bournemouth 1 – 3 Stoke City
Crystal Palace 1 – 2 Watford
Everton 0 – 1 West Bromwich Albion
Arsenal 2 – 1 Leicester City
Aston Villa 0 – 6 Liverpool
Manchester City 1 – 2 Tottenham

The title race, of now, appears to be among three clubs: Leicester, Arsenal and Tottenham. Each club holds some advantages in that regard. Leicester is only playing in one competition. Tottenham looks as deep and cohesive as they've been in years. The Gunners have the most experience at the top level of football, the most talent on paper of the three teams and are finally starting to get healthy.
It will be a fascinating finale for both the top and bottom of the table, as Aston Villa look all but certain to go down, while five clubs are within five points of one another in the fight to avoid the other two relegation places.
