    • There were two big Barclays Premier League matches played last night.

      Manchester United 0-3 Liverpool (Gerrard 34'pen, 46'pen, Suarez 84')

      This is Liverpool's first win at Old Trafford since March 2009. There were three penalties awarded to Liverpool in the game and a red card to Vidic for two bookable offences. Steven Gerrard took all three penalties and scored two of them, while Luis Suarez added in a third for the visitors. This is Man Utd's heaviest home defeat under David Moyes this season, and this will decrease their chances of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League next season.

      Tottenham 0-1 Arsenal (Rosicky 2')

      This is Arsenal's first win at White Hart Lane since 2007. Arsenal went ahead after only 72 seconds through Tomas Rosicky. Tottenham had more attempts (17) compared to Arsenal (7). They also had more possession (59%) and completed more passes (471) than Arsenal (330). However, these stats proved nothing for Tottenham as they crashed to a second consecutive defeat in the league and failing to score in both matches.

      In conclusion, both matches had a total of four goals scored, and all four of them were scored by away teams.

    • I think that Liverpool can win their first league title since 1990. Manchester United committed three fouls in the penalty box, therefore they conceded three penalties, their most at home since 2011. Arsenal were good as well, going into the lead after just 72 seconds, their fastest North London Derby goal in the Premier League.
