And that’s it! A good night for the top clubs: Chelsea, Liverpool, manchester City, Tottenham and Man United won everything, and the achievements of Arsenal’s loss to Everton all the more significant.

Sunderland, Hull and Swansea remain in the bottom three, but West Ham got a much-needed win over Burnley.

Phew. Lots going on, and we apologize again for the error on the Mata goal that never was.

I need a choc ice. Thank you for reading. Goodbye!

Matthew Arnatt asks himself a question: “Hi Tim, in all the pictures of the players heads look grafted on, and about 15% larger than they should do. Watch ‘Fabregas opens up for the Chelsea and ‘Willan fight Jones’. What do you think? It is only Chelsea?”

Hm. Good question. I don’t really know how to respond.
