Update: All scores have been updated for games played to 14/02/2016.
With the top four teams playing on the Sunday, Saturday’s games were never going to produce high fantasy league scores.
A few points to note; Chelsea, unbeaten in all 12 games since Guus Hiddink took charge, seem to be really turning things around. Their 5-1 over lowly Newcastle is a result you would expect of Chelsea of old. Earlier this season Newcastle would have fancied their chances…
Southampton kept a 6th consecutive clean sheet with Frazer Forster and their 1-0 away win at Swansea moves them in to 6th place.
Manchester United’s revival in fortunes took a knock as they lost 2-1 away to Sunderland and Everton’s mini revival halted as they lost 1-0 at home to struggling West Brom.
Emmanuel Adebayor and Andros Townshend are both off the mark for their new clubs Crystal Palace and Newcastle.
In the Sunday games, Arsenal left it late to beat Leicester 2-1 – comeback kid Danny Wellbeck with the winner in injury time. Another comeback kid, Daniel Sturridge, also scored in Liverpool’s 6-0 demolition of Aston Villa and Spurs moved to 2nd in the league with a 2-1 win at Manchester City.
