Big wins for Chelsea and Arsenal

04 April 2010 08:48
Chelsea won the game of the day against Manchester United to take top spot whilst Arsenal moved closer to second place with a late winner against Wolves. Chelsea's lead at the top is two points over United with Arsenal one point further away. Manchester City are now in pole position for the fourth Champions League game after their narrow (????) win against the Clarets. They are above Spurs by one point in what is getting close to a two horse race.There weren't many points picked up by the bottom clubs, just West Ham and Portsmouth getting draws in the bottom seven. It still looks likely (more than likely) that we will go down with Portsmouth and one of West Ham or Hull, although it would be nice to see Bolton lose all their remaining games and find their way back down.The results and stats from this week are below along with a list of leading goalscorers, each club's disciplinary record and the next fixtures.The Week's ResultsSaturday 3rd AprilArsenal 1 Wolves 0Portsmouth 0 Blackburn 0Bolton 0 Aston Villa 1Stoke 2 Hull 0Burnley 1 Manchester City 6Sunderland 3 Tottenham 1Manchester United 1 Chelsea 2.Sunday 4th AprilBirmingham 1 Liverpool 1Fulham 2 Wigan 1Everton 2 West Ham 2.The Week's StatsBiggest winManchester City 6-1 v Burnley (away)Total goals scored27 (13 home - 14 away)Player scoring most goals2Emmanuel Adebayor (Manchester City)Darren Bent (Sunderland)Highest Attendance75,217 - Manchester United v ChelseaLowest Attendance16,207 - Portsmouth v BlackburnTotal Yellow Cards30Total Red Cards2Most cards in a gameEverton v West Ham (5Y) - Howard WebbManchester United v Chelsea (5Y) - Mike DeanStoke v Hull (5Y) - Lee ProbertThe leading scorers (league only)26Wayne Rooney (Manchester United)25Didier Drogba (Chelsea)22Darren Bent (Sunderland)20Carlos Tevez (Manchester City)18Fernando Torres (Liverpool)17Jermain Defoe (Tottenham)Frank Lampard (Chelsea)15Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal)13Louis Saha (Everton)12Dimitar Berbatov (Manchester United)11Emmanuel Adebayor (Manchester City)Gabriel Agbonlahor (Aston Villa)Florent Malouda (Chelsea)9Andrey Arshavin (Arsenal)Craig Bellamy (Manchester City)Carlton Cole (West Ham)Cameron Jerome (Birmingham)Dirk Kuyt (Liverpool)Hugo Rodallega (Wigan)Hat Tricks (league only)19th Aug3 - Jermain Defoe - Hull v TOTTENHAM12th Sep3 - Yossi Benayoun - LIVERPOOL v Burnley26th Sep4 - Robbie Keane - TOTTENHAM v Burnley26th Sep3 - Fernando Torres - LIVERPOOL v Hull31st Oct3 - Aruna Dindane - PORTSMOUTH v Wigan21st Nov5 - Jermain Defoe - TOTTENHAM v Wigan28th Nov3 - Wayne Rooney - Portsmouth v MANCHESTER UNITED11th Jan3 - Carlos Tevez - MANCHESTER CITY v Blackburn23rd Jan4 - Wayne Rooney - MANCHESTER UNITED v Hull9th Mar3 - Darren Bent - SUNDERLAND v Bolton27th Mar4 - Frank Lampard - CHELSEA v Aston Villa29th Mar3 - Carlos Tevez - MANCHESTER CITY v WiganDisciplinary Record (all domestic games)ClubYRClubYRArsenal611Liverpool555Aston Villa662Manchester City623Birmingham661Manchester United596Blackburn624Portsmouth805Bolton655Stoke715Burnley603Sunderland776Chelsea564Tottenham551Everton612West Ham663Fulham431Wigan552Hull645Wolves644The Next FixturesSaturday 10th AprilHull v BurnleyWest Ham v SunderlandSunday 11th AprilBlackburn v Manchester United (13:30)Manchester City v Birmingham (16:00)Liverpool v FulhamWolves v Stoke (12:00)Tuesday 13th AprilChelsea v Bolton (20:00).Wednesday 14th AprilAston Villa v EvertonTottenham v Stoke (20:00)Fulham v Stoke (20:00)Wigan v Portsmouth
