OSG Prem: Mourinho Concedes Title, Man City-Arsenal Rules The Afternoon

((HT: BPL/Sky Sports/NBCSN))

The early morning started with protests above Old Trafford, but a big win inside as Manchester United went down a goal early. They came back to win 4-1 over Aston Villa thanks to two Wayne Rooney goals.


Southampton continued their claim to the top half by blowing out an outgunned Newcastle side 4-0.
Peter Odemwingie scored to give Stoke a 1-0 over Hull City
Two goals from de Guizman gave Swansea a big three points in a 3-0 over Norwich

Now, to the wild stuff...

The last time Chelsea's John Terry gave up an own goal was, like, in 1934 or something. But his OG in the 52nd minute gave Crystal Palace their first win over the Blues since 1990. The Eagles got a HUGE three points taking them 5 points clear of the drop. Afterwards, Jose Mourinho all but conceded the title...

West Brom and Cardiff had all the appearance of a six-pointer with the Bluebirds in the drop zone and the opponents hovering just above it. The game had its huge swings of momentum, and the Baggies' Morgan Amalfitano gave Paul Merson fits...

And then, there was all the late drama of stoppage time...

Cardiff manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer seemed to get a good laugh out of the last two minutes along with counterpart Pepe Mel. He still seemed a little shocked about getting a point out of the deal...

So, that put everything into the courts of Man City and Arsenal- who were the nightcap at the Emirates.
David Silva had the Citizens up at the break, but his squad gave up their first goal since February 3rd to Flamini. The game ends in a 1-1 draw and keeps Chelsea one up on Liverpool with City another point back- with two games in hand.

Arsenal are three back of third with the Reds playing tomorrow.
