    Big wins for palace & West Ham.....

    WBA are now with Southampton now looking like the sides most likely to join Swansea....

    Will all change again come the next round of fixtures....

    Chelsea could put a big nail in Arsenals top 4 chances tomorrow

    Swansea a bit unlucky tonight. Spurs’ first miles offside then a lucky deflection off Dele Ali at the death for the winner. Utterly filthy conditions in the first half and Spurs should have had it wrapped up by half time but Swansea much better in the second half.

    Looks like them, WBA and probably Stoke if they stick with the clueless Hughes at this rate to go down. Not sure Van Dijk’s enough to save Liverpool’s defence but if Arsenal keep Sanchez and Ozil through this window I think it’s them and Liverpool for fourth spot.

    If Arsenal lose tomorrow v Chelsea they will be 6 points off 4th....with a far worse goal difference than the top 5....

    Could be a long way back from that....

    Still early days....Liverpool will take 4th im sure but I think there a better side than United and think they can still finish above them....Man City at Anfield in a couple weeks will be a big test....

    Wasn’t it just? Arsenal robbed again with yet another dodgy penalty, two great goals from full backs late on, Jack Wilshere getting back to his best and Morata couldn’t hit a cow’s arse with a banjo! Superb entertainment.

    Wilshire looks a must for England's midfield...the lad when fit is class.....

    Arsenal are all over the place defensively - even worse than Liverpool.

    I thought it was a penalty to be honest - sloppy from Bellerin

    The penalty: both players stretching for the ball, Hazard reaches it a millisecond before Bellarin, Bellarin’s foot brushes the underside of Hazard, Hazard falls to the ground with his face screwed up in pain as though he’d been kicked full whack in the balls.

    If you were having a knockabout with your mates in the Park you’d shrug it off and continue tussling with your opponent for the ball, you wouldn’t be on the grass crying like a baby. I think Dermot Gallagher got it wrong in his summary: so what if there’s contact? Football’s a contact sport, contact doesn’t equal foul, especially the merest brush which isn’t enough to send your opponent to the ground. Hazard wasn’t knocked to the ground, rather like Wilshere at the other end where the ref’s view was blocked, he dived. Pure and simple.

    Never a penalty in a million years and I’m getting tired of these soft penalties being given for nothing challenges with pundits claiming the ‘fouled’ player is entitled to go down and emphasise the foul because they’ve felt contact.

    So that’s Arsenal’s run for CL spot next season done then. Looks like three from Chelsea, MU, Liverpool and Spurs for the CL now. Very tight between those four, wouldn’t like to call who’s going to join Arsenal in missing out.
