Among those are Fulham vs Arsenal, Sunderland vs Everton and West Ham vs Wigan.
Most of the matches today are mid-table or relegation battle matches, as the 2012-13 season draws to a close.
Arsenal and Everton are the two sides representing the top 6 teams in the league, both playing away from home hoping they can get 3 points to move further up the table and pressure their CL rivals.
This was a hotly-contested match, between two sides who both wanted to qualify for next season's UEFA Champions League at The Emirates.
The hosts had many chances to break the deadlock, with Cazorla and Oxlade-Chamberlain both playing well to find Giroud with through balls inside the box, but the Frenchman could not finish his chances and the match ended goal-less despite many chances for both sides.

Everton were desperate to get back into the match, and had many chances with Mirallas, Baines and Fellaini all going close but were all denied by in-form goalkeeper Mignolet who did well to keep a clean sheet.
Peter Crouch broke the deadlock just before half-time after cooly slotting home a tap-in past Green into the net to cap off a good Stoke counter attack.
Taarabt and Townsend both had to be replaced due to injury for QPR, and the hosts never looked the same again.
