Arsenal 1 Manchester United 1, Chelsea 2 Swansea 0, QPR 0 Reading 0: match reports

Robin van Persie returned to The Emirates for the first time on Sunday since his controversial £24million move to Manchester United last summer, hoping that he would recieve a warm, welcoming reception to a ground and a club that he had shared many good and bad times throughout his 8-year tenure at the club. 

He was proved wrong. Much speculation whether Arsenal would in-fact give newly-crowned champions Manchester United a guard of honour was in-fact observed at 4pm on Sunday afternoon, and the match in general was a spectacle for neutrals. 

Observed: Arsenal give Manchester United a guard of honour before their 1-1 draw at The Emirates.

Arsenal will feel hard done by as they dominated the match and should have scored two or three more goals than they did, while they conceded a goal thanks to a silly mistake by French right-back Bacary Sagna, who many Gunners fans believe his time has come to leave the club after no ambition or passion for the game everytime he plays.

Cool finish: Walcott slots the ball past a helpless De Gea in just the 2nd minute against Manchester United.

Quick out of the blocks: Walcott celebrates his early finish with the home fans, unaware of what is to come next

Guess who: van Persie smashes the ball past Szczesny from the penalty spot to make it 1-1 against his old club

van Persie tries to show respect to his former club by not celebrating his finish, but it did not stop the abuse

Manchester United however will feel happy that they got a point out of a rivalry match they should have lost, especially by a penalty goal which was gifted to them away from home.

They now know that they cannot beat Chelsea's all-time points record of 95 but they can take heart from the fact that this campaign has been a rather comfortable one for them, with the whole team not having to get past "gear 4" in the most part of the season. 

On the other side of London, Chelsea knew that a home win against Welsh club Swansea would move them back up to 3rd place.

Goals from Oscar and Frank Lampard (penalty) gave The Blues a comfortable 2-0 home win against a side that won the Capital One Cup back in February (thus qualifying for next season's Europa League), yet have never played the same since then.

Class: Chelsea's Brazillian playmaker Oscar makes it 2 goals in 2 matches after his header against Liverpool.

Piledriver: Frank Lampard makes no mistake from the penalty spot to double Chelsea's lead.

Almost: Lampard is one goal away from reaching the all-time club record of 202 goals, made by Bobby Tambling.

Encouraging: Mark Clattenburg returned to his official duties on Sunday for the first time in 6 months.

In the early afternoon kick-off, QPR hosted Reading at Loftus Road in an emotional day in this season's EPL. 
Both teams knew that if they did not win, they would both be relegated with 25 points each.

This clearly had an effect on both sides, who were playing tentatively trying to avoid making a mistake which would allow the other to go and score a goal, which then meant neither team was able to score or concede, and the match remained goal-less throughout the 90 minutes, despite a few chances for both sides. 

We are not sure of the last club joining them to the Npower Championship next season, but we now know that QPR and Reading are RELEGATED.

It's quite a shock as far as QPR are concerned, despite a poor start to the season they seemed to have picked themselves up due to the appointment of former Portsmouth and Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp.

They made some big signings in January including Samba and Remy to partner their summer signings of Julio Cesar, Granero and Junior Holiett but this just clogged up the team's wage bill as half the players were more concerned about their wages instead of improving their team performances.

Reading on the other hand were always going to be on the back foot having just been promoted to the "big league", plus the fact they started the season slowly and a poor run of results ended up in their manager (Brian McDermott) being sacked.
It was a culture shock for a boss that had been so influential in taking the side up to the EPL to be knocked over when he was down, and the team never really recovered.

EPL 6-Match Round-up + Analysis:

Hello and welcome to my latest blog post, where I have 6-match round-up + analysis from the matches that were played in the EPL today including Newcastle vs Liverpool and Wigan vs Tottenham.

Manchester City 2 West Ham United 1
This was the early afternoon kick-off, as 2nd placed City hosted mid-table side West Ham at The Ethiad Stadium.

Argentinan striker Sergio Aguero broke the deadlock in the 28th minute with his 11th EPL goal of the season after a nice one-two pass between Nasri and Silva found him inside the box, with an easy tap-in finish.

3: Charlie Adam celebrates his goal after scoring his first goal since his father died on the 17th of December.
 Wigan Athletic 2 Tottenham Hotspur 2
This was a crunch match at the DW Stadium, as both sides needed points in their respective places in the table.
Spurs knew that a win would move them above 3rd placed Arsenal who play tomorrow against Manchester United at 4pm, while Wigan needed a win to move above Aston Villa, out of the relegation zone.

Tottenham started off well, with Welsh winger Gareth Bale breaking the deadlock in the 9th minute with his 19th EPL goal of the season.

Stroke of luck: Boyce scores an own goal in the 89th minute to equalise for Spurs and make it 2-2 at FT.
Newcastle United 0 Liverpool 6
This match was played at the Sports Direct Arena, as relegation-fighters Newcastle hosted a motivated Liverpool side who wanted to try and move on after the Suarez controversy of last Sunday, when he bit Ivanovic during the match against Chelsea at Anfield.

UEFA Champions League Semi-Final 1st Leg Review + Analysis:

Hello and welcome to my latest blog post, where I have my review of the two UEFA Champions League Semi-Finals.

German leaders Bayern Munich hosted Spainish leaders Barcelona, while the competition's underdogs Borussia Dortmund hosted Real Madrid at the Signal Iduna Park. 

Bayern Munich 4 Barcelona 0

This match was played at the Allianz Arena, as German giants Bayern hosted Barca at home in the first-leg of their mouthwatering tie.
The hosts dominated throughout the match, clearly doing their homework on their Spainsh opponents.

You could tell as best in the world forward Lionel Messi was isolated by himself, being marked well and challenged by defensive midfielders Bastian Schweinsteiger and Javi Martinez through the whole game.  

 Smart: Bayern did their homework on magic Messi and he was not able to make a significant impact of the game
The hosts broke the deadlock in the 25th minute after Holland winger Arjen Robben's ball into the box was headed by Brazil defender Dante towards the near post for Thomas Muller who nodded the ball past Victor Valdes into the net.

Ahead: Muller converts a header at the near post past Valdes into the net to give Bayern a 1-0 lead.

Important: Muller celebrates his first of the night to give Bayern a 1-0 lead at home.

Mario Gomez doubled the lead for Bayern in the 49th minute with a half-volley strike inside the box despite offside claims after Muller's header bounced to him, with Valdes helpless to stop tthe shot from going in.

Hint of offside: Mario Gomez hits a sweet volley into the net past a helpless Valdes to double the Bayern lead.

2-0: Gomez celebrates his finish with his team-mates.
Arjen Robben put the icing on the Bayern cake in the 73rd minute with a lovely curled finish into the bottom corner of the net.

Superb finish: Arjen Robben makes it 3-0 to kill off any Barca hopes of getting back into the match.

Icing on the cake: Robben celebrates his goal despite claims of a foul by Muller on Alba during the build-up.

Barcelona were furious that the goal was allowed to count, as Muller was seen to bodycheck Alba inside the box on purpose, blocking him from being able to tackle Robben.

The match was beyond Barca after this, but Bayern were not finished there. A long low ball by left-back David Alaba into the box found Muller who sild in to tap the ball past Valdes into the net to make it 4-0.

Sliding in at the far post: Muller scores his 2nd of the night to make it 4-0 against Barca.

Effective: Thomas Muller was outstanding for Bayern on Tuesday, scoring 2 goals and helping the team.

This was how the match finished, and Barca are almost certainly out of this tie after a comfortable, confident performance by Bayern Munich.  

Borussia Dortmund 4 Real Madrid 1  

German efficiency: Part 2 was shown at the Signal Iduna Park, as Dortmund thrashed Real Madrid 4-1 at home thanks to four great goals by Polish red-hot striker Robert Lewandowski. 

It was a great team effort from the hosts despite the major story that Gotze was leaving Dortmund for Bayern in the summer transfer window, with Reus, Gundogan, Gotze and Lewandowski all playing very well as Real Madrid were put under the knife.

Controversy: Dortmund have confirmed that Bayern signed Gotze for £33million, and he will join the club in July

Not taken well: Many Dortmund fans have not taken well to the news calling him "Judas"

They only made one mistake in the game, with Hummels failing to pass the ball firmly enough for Weidenfeller, as Higuain sneakily intercepted the ball and crossed it into the box for Ronaldo to slot home an away goal for Real.  
"Lethal Lewandowski" scored four for Dortmund as they cruised to a comfortable 4-1 victory at home. They will know that the tie is not over yet as Real Madrid are resillent and will want to get to the Wembley final.
However, having said that there is a good chance that it will be an all German final as both sides played outstanding football and proved that it is not just all about the Spainsh teams anymore...

Barca need another miracle just to get to the final, while Real do nto have a good chance but are still in the tie.

The second leg matches will be played on Tuesday (Real vs Dortmund) and Wednesday (Barca vs Bayern).

Tottenham vs City, Liverpool vs Chelsea - LIVE Coverage:

Hello and welcome to my latest blog post, which is a LIVE Coverage of two EPL matches being played today. 
First, Tottenham host 2nd placed Manchester City at White Hart Lane at 1.30pm, before Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield at 4pm.

Arsenal, Manchester United and Everton will all be watching today's action with interest, as United only need 6 points to win the league (if City win today) while Arsenal are in 3rd after a win away at Fulham yesterday. Chelsea are behind by 2 points, and a draw or loss thanks to Liverpool will give them more chance of qualifying for next season's Champions League. 

Tottenham host City, but they know a win at home will put them level on points with Chelsea provided they lose to Liverpool later on. 
Everton will be hoping both Tottenham and Chelsea do not win today, while local rivals Liverpool can move within 3 points of them with a win at home against Chelsea.

Slightly confusing, but that will not be the case for much longer in this fascinating season.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City:

14:10: 40 minutes played at White Hart Lane, with the hosts trailing thanks to a 5th minute goal from French midfielder Samir Nasri.

The table as it stands:

1st: Manchester United with 81 points
2nd: Manchester City with 71 points
3rd: Arsenal with 63 points
4th: Chelsea with 61 points
5th: Tottenham with 58 points

Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko just had a well-struck shot saved well by Hugo Lloris after a counter attacking move. Carlos Tevez fed him a great through ball, and he got past the last defender before having his strike saved

45: The fourth official has signalled for 2 minutes of stoppage time to be added on at the end of the first half at White Hart Lane, with Spurs behind.

45+1: Tottenham seem as if they are rushing to get the equaliser, wasteful of possession and City are strong in defence. 

45+2: The referee blows his whistle to end the first half with City taking a slender 1-0 lead at the break in a cagey match.   

Liverpool host Chelsea at Anfield at 4pm, with interim Chelsea manager Rafael Benitez returning to face his former club Liverpool, a club that he is rumoured to return to at the end of the season after his spell with The Blues. 

Chelsea will move into 3rd place, 1 point above rivals Arsenal with an away win today while Liverpool can close the gap on local rivals Everton with a good win at home today.

Meanwhile, Welsh club Cardiff became the first club to seal their place in next season's EPL after winning the Championship with matches to spare.

Npower champions! Cardiff celebrate their championship win to seal their place in the EPL next season.

We are going up! Cardiff fans celebrate sealing promotion to the EPL for next season.

55: Still 1-0 to City, with Tottenham slacking behind and looking tired.
They have not looked the same over the past few weeks, since the defeat against Inter Milan and Basel in the Europa League. 

60: Tottenham SUB:
Gylfi Sigurdsson OFF
Scott Parker OFF
Lewis Holtby ON
Tom Huddlestone ON

70: Tottenham SUB:
Emmanuel Adebayor OFF
Jermain Defoe ON

All out for AVB.... 

90+3: Full-time, and the hosts Tottenham had a late charge with 3 goals within 8 minutes to win at home. 

American forward Clint Dempsey equalised in the 75th minute with a tap-in strike into the bottom corner of the net, while England striker Jermain Defoe and Welsh winger Gareth Bale both had good strikes which beat Joe Hart into the net. 

Tap-in: Dempsey slots the ball at the near post past Joe Hart to equalise for Spurs at home.

There we go: Clint Dempsey celebrates his equaliser for Spurs in the 75th minute from a tap-in.
Great strike: Jermain Defoe hits a bullet strike to make it 2-1 to the hosts within minutes of Dempsey's equaliser.

Back with a bang: Welsh winger Gareth Bale celebrates his first goal after returning from injury
15:35: Spurs move level on points with 4th placed Chelsea who play against Liverpool at 4pm.... I'll be back for that one! :)

Liverpool vs Chelsea: 

Team Line-ups from Anfield:
Liverpool: Reina, Johnson, Carragher, Agger, Jose Enrique, Gerrard, Lucas, Downing, Henderson, Coutinho, Suarez. 

Subs: Jones, Assaidi, Sturridge, Coates, Shelvey, Coady, Skrtel.

Chelsea: Cech, Azpilicueta, Ivanovic, Luiz, Bertrand, Ramires, Mikel, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Torres.
Subs: Turnbull, Lampard, Moses, Ferreira, Terry, Ba, Benayoun.

Referee: Kevin Friend

Warm welcome for one: Rumours are speculating that Benitez is heading back to Liverpool for a second spell.

Comeback on the cards: One Liverpool fan shows what he thinks about Benitez at Chelsea
The Kop have fell silent now... 1-0 to Chelsea. A soft goal to concede from the hosts' point of view, with Brazil playmaker Oscar nodding home from a corner. Arsenal and Tottenham are worried now.

Sloppy: Bad man-marking from Agger gives Oscar a free header inside the box, who nods past Reina to score.

Rare header: Oscar celebrates his 2nd EPL goal of the season to give Chelsea a 1-0 lead.

3rd: Chelsea with 64 points
4th: Arsenal with 63 points
5th: Tottenham with 61 points 

29: CLOSE! Brazil defender David Luiz had an ambitious effort on-goal from a free-kick 25 yards out, and his teasing effort bobbled before Pepe Reina parried it behind him, and almost conceded again. Liverpool are in trouble... 

35: The likes of Downing and Coutinho will be under pressure to perform even better now that the hosts are behind, as Liverpool need some creativity to find Suarez inside the box.  

37: Free-kick given to Liverpool, after Torres catches defender Jamie Carragher with his elbow. Yellow card given to the former Liverpool forward.  

Bad reception: Fernando Torres made 102 appearances for Liverpool between 2007 and 2011, scoring 65 goals.
43: Cagey last five minutes, with Chelsea having to defend from Coutinho and Suarez's advances. Lively play by Liverpool, they need to continue it.

45: The fourth official signals for just one minute of stoppage time to be added on at the end of the first half, as Henderson's through ball to Suarez is parried and held by Cech at the near post.

45+1: Referee Kevin Friend blows his whistle to end the first-half at Anfield. Liverpool will feel disappointed that they go into the break behind since they conceded a soft goal from a corner, and started to play much better after that goal went in.

Meanwhile, Chelsea will be hoping that they can add to their slender lead after half-time to ensure they get the 3 points away from home.  

17:02: The second half has begun at Anfield.

47: I am not sure what Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said to his players at half-time, but it has affected them a LOT.
They have started the second half very well, with Sturridge (half-time sub on for Coutinho) and Suarez both working well to create two chances within seconds.   
It could be 2-1 to Liverpool... interesting 40 minutes or so to go now.

50: Liverpool corner, hoping they can equalise with the same set-piece that Chelsea used to break the deadlock. 

Danish defender Daniel Agger heads the ball goalwards.... GREAT SAVE!! by Petr Cech. He stretched for that ball there, still 1-0 to Chelsea though. 

52: GOAL! Liverpool have equalised! It's only fair given the way they have started the second half, with Henderson and Sturridge mixing together to finish after some nice team-work and build-up play. 1-1, with Sturridge scoring his 6th EPL goal of the season and against his former club aswell!

This match has exploded into life..  

54: HANDBALL! Liverpool have given away a silly penalty inside the box, after Torres' header is blocked by Suarez as it flies in the air. Kevin Friend sees it perfectly, and points to the spot with no hesistation before brandishing a yellow card for the Uruguayan. 

Stupid decision from the forward, he has gifted Chelsea a perfect chance to restore their lead.  

Stupid: Luis Suarez handles the ball inside the box, giving away a penalty which gave Chelsea the lead again

56: Belgian winger Eden Hazard steps up to take it... he slots the ball cooly into the left hand corner of the net, sending Reina the wrong way. 2-1 to Chelsea, all thanks to Suarez. 

Cool and collected: Eden Hazard scores from the penalty spot to give Chelsea the lead again.

Back in the lead: Hazard is mobbed by his Chelsea team-mates after his penalty goal.
63: A bit of revenge for Torres, as he gets Carragher yellow carded after an off-the-ball challenge is simulated by the Spainarad and referee Kevin Friend gives him a yellow. Both players have been yellow carded now.

66: Liverpool have a free-kick in a very dangerous position after Jamie Carragher is sandwiched in mid-air just outside the box.  

67: Suarez stands over the ball, with Gerrard behind him... Suarez shoots... WIDE!!! He had better options than to shoot, chance wasted there. 

69: Controversy again, for Suarez AGAIN. Camera angles show that he seemed to BITE Chelsea full-back Branislav Ivanovic when he was tackled a couple of moments ago... more news when I get it.  

Disgraceful: Cameras showed that Suarez bit Ivanovic's shoulder after he lost the ball inside the box.

Horrid: Suarez and Ivanovic look at each other after the incident, and Suarez will certainly be in the headlines.
75: Liverpool have 15 minutes to salvage something out of this match now, with the hosts trying to keep possession and move forward into a goal-scoring position.

77: Chelsea are looking to make a substutition as they look to close out the match, with Benayoun warming up and stripping down his training kit, while Brendan Rodgers looking at Jonjo Shelvey to replace someone (either Downing or Henderson)

78: Chelsea SUB:
Eden Hazard OFF
Yossi Benayoun ON

Liverpool supporters will be happy to see the end of Hazard who has posed a threat all match, and he scored the penalty to make it 2-1. However they will not be happy to see the man who is replacing him, Benayoun who is a former Liverpool player.

80 - Liverpool SUB:
Stewart Downing OFF
Jonjo Shelvey ON

Warm applause for Shelvey who has played well throughout this season despite having a limited amount of match-time, who replaces Downing who has had energy all day but not be able to test Cech himself.

81: Yellow card given to Shelvey who has not been on the pitch two minutes after a late tackle on Oscar. He needs to learn to stay on his feet, and the Brazillian looks uncomfortable on the floor clutching his ankle.

82: Chelsea SUB:
Oscar OFF
Victor Moses ON 

Oscar was going to be replaced anyway, the injury just completed the deal. Hopefully it is not too serious after a late challenge by Shelvey, and he is okay.

85: GREAT CHANCE!!! Liverpool almost equalise again after a great pass-and-move. 
Right-back Glen Johnson whips a lofted ball up to Sturridge, who backheels towards Gerrard. He plays it to the path of Shelvey who shapes to shoot but his effort hits the side netting.

89: Chelsea are looking to send on legendary midfielder Frank Lampard for the remaining few minutes of the match, while Liverpool continue to press for the equaliser but Chelsea stay strong at the back.  

90: The fourth official signals for 6 minutes of stoppage time to be added on at the end of the second half, while Lampard replaces Juan Mata.
Liverpool still have a lot of time to score an equaliser, while Chelsea can score the decider and kill off any remaining Liverpool hopes...  

90+1: Liverpool get their players inside the box for a corner, but it is played short to Jonjo Shelvey who hits a stinging drive towards goal, but it flies past the post not worried Cech. 
Wasted chance, there were 7 players waiting in the box and there were better options than to try to score.

90+3: Chelsea goal-kick, with Petr Cech blasting the ball as far up the pitch as he can. 3 minutes for Liverpool to salvage a point at home... 

90+5: Liverpool dominating possession, passing the ball and putting Chelsea under pressure inside their area. Suarez has an effort... saved and held by Cech.

90+6: GOAL! Daniel Sturridge whips a cross into the box for Suarez, who heads the ball past Cech into the net! Late drama, and Liverpool equalise in the last seconds of the match. 

Late drama: Suarez heads Liverpool's equaliser in the 96th minute of play at Anfield to make it 2-2.

90+7: Full-time at Anfield. Chelsea fail to finish off the match, and fail to take all 3 points home to London.

Lots of controversy throughout this match, but both sides take away just the one point. Chelsea stay in 4th place, one point behind Arsenal, and one in-front of Tottenham. 

There will be a lot of stories in the press tomorrow from Suarez's bite which was disgraceful, but The Reds take a deserved point at home in the dying seconds of the match.
