Jermain Defoe converted a penalty against FC Sheriff to claim his 23rd European goal for the club, one more than club legend Martin Chivers managed during his time at White Hart Lane.

Defoe may have broken the club's European scoring record - and that is a fantastic achievement - but penalty aside he had a very quiet game. Expect to see him back on the bench against Newcastle on Sunday as Roberto Soldado is restored to the starting line-up.

Per Mertesacker may have kicked his last ball for Arsenal after the defender limped off during Saturdays’ game against Norwich.

Mertesacker slipped under pressure from a Norwich player during the opening exchanges of the second half and immediately grabbed his hamstring before signalling to the bench. The big German was making only his third Premier League start since early March having fallen out of favour, but this latest setback could bring an early end to his campaign. Gabriel looks set to partner Laurent Koscielny in the heart of the Arsenal defence for their two remaining league games. Mertesacker has been linked with a move away from the Emirates and could end his five-year association with the club this summer.

Arsenal were by no means impressive today, but Arsene Wenger pushed the right button by calling on Danny Welbeck in the second half and the forward scored the lone goal of a day as the Gunners squeak past Norwich City, 1-0.

There has been a strain on the relationship between Wenger and Arsenal supporters because of comments the manager made in the press this week and the Emirates contained a significant number of protesters. While the Gunners did not dispatch of Norwich in convincing fashion, credit is due to the manager for making the right move at the right time. After a first half in which Arsenal failed to register a shot on target, Wenger brought Welbeck on shortly before the hour mark and three minutes later, the substitute scored after Olivier Giroud headed a ball into his path. The defense picked up the slack of an otherwise lackluster attacking display and the win moves Arsenal ahead of Manchester City for now, with the latter playing tomorrow.

Norwich City's survival hopes are now in serious danger after both Newcastle and Sunderland picked up points today while the Canaries lost to Arsenal, 1-0.

While Newcastle and Sunderland are playing their best football of the season using a very settled XI, Alex Neil continues to make several changes from match to match and none of the combinations are working. The Canaries had an opportunity to get a result in a tough fixture as Arsenal were not playing their best and the points look to be up for grabs after a goalless first half. Nathan Redmond carried their biggest threat throughout the day, but his finishing touch was not accurate. In general, it has been the lack of quality in the final third all season, whether it be service or finishing, that has been lacking for Norwich and may well doom them back to the Championship after a one year visit to the top flight.

Crystal Palace continued to limp their way to the finish line with a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United.

The Eagles, who had designs on a Europa League spot during the first half of the season, have won just once since a week before Christmas in league play. They looked the better bet to score in the first half today, with Yannick Bolasie causing problems for the Magpies, but could not take advantage of their possession. Yohan Cabaye had a shot from short range but it was from a narrow angle and was saved by Karl Darlow. The two would lock horns again in the second half when it looked as though Palace were set to equalize with a penalty. They had converted every penalty they were given this season, but Cabaye's effort was poor and Darlow made the stop. At this point, the Eagles should feel fortunate the season is not a couple of games longer, or they would be staring at one of the most disastrous collapses in league history. Certainly, changes are in order this summer.

Everton ended its horrendous seven-match winless streak in league play with a 2-1 win against Bournemouth on Saturday afternoon.

Roberto Martinez has been under extreme scrutiny during the winless run, which dates back to a 3-1 win against Aston Villa on March 1, but the win is unlikely to do much to change his future at the club. It was Tom Cleverley who starred for the Toffees, scoring the first goal in just the seventh minute after taking a pass from Ross Barkley at the edge of the penalty box. But Everton conceded an equalizer just two minutes later to Bournemouth's Marc Pugh, who beat Tim Howard in his penultimate game at Goodison Park. But Cleverley responded just after the hour mark by setting up Leighton Baines for what ended up being the match-winner to secure the three points and move into 11th.

Sunderland waiting until the last possible moment to earn a critical point in the relegation race with a stoppage-time equalizer.

Jermain Defoe proved to be the Black Cats' hero once again after baiting Geoff Cameron into a tackle at the edge of the 18-yard box that was signaled for a penalty. The Premier League veteran stepped to the spot and delivered with a blast into the bottom right corner of the net away from a diving Jakob Haugaard in the fourth and final minute of stoppage time. The goal sealed the 1-1 draw and a point that pulls them one point past Norwich City, who has two games in hand, and into 18th place, just a point behind Newcastle.

Andre Wisdom and Timm Klose will not play any part in the Canaries relegation run-in after suffering serious knee injuries.

Wisdom has ended his loan spell at the club after the defender suffered a knee ligament injury during the dying moments of the game against Sunderland. "Andre is out for the remainder of the season," the Canaries boss told Norwich's YouTube channel. "He is away back to Liverpool now. He was a loan player, so there is no point in him hanging about here, he needs to go start his rehab there." Alex Neil also confirmed Swiss defender Timm Klose won't play again in 2015/16: "He isn't going to be right between now and the end of the season. We need to come to terms with that and move on. It's going to be a slow process for him."

Andros Townsend delivered a cracking free kick goal and Karl Darlow stopped a Crystal Palace penalty chance as Newcastle United move out of the relegation zone with a 1-0 win over the Eagles.

Palace looked the likelier side to score in the opening 45 minutes, as the Magpies had a couple of opportunities come up empty. Jack Colback sent a dangerous ball into the area but Moussa Sissoko could not get a clean foot on it. Colback then missed a curling effort inside the area. It was Townsend who finally broke through in the 58th minute, drawing a foul a few yards outside the box then sent a sizzling free kick that popped the far corner of the net. Newcastle tried to park the bus but Sissoko was adjudged to have committed handball and former Magpie Yohan Cabaye had a chance to equalize from the spot. His kick was not wide enough and Darlow made the huge save that could mean the difference in the club's season. Sunderland still have a game in hand and a better goal difference record but their crosstown rivals have the benefit of facing lowly Aston Villa next weekend.

Mark Noble led West Ham to a huge win over West Brom by a score of 3-0.

Noble scored twice to give West Ham a very comfortable lead. He remains a solid midfielder but fantasy managers shouldn't expect to see this type of performance more than once a season. The other goal came from Cheikhou Kouyate, who is worth playing in very deep leagues only.

Troy Deeney scored two goals in added time to give Watford a 3-2 win over Aston Villa.

The striker saved Watford from embarrassment as they almost lost to a horrible Aston Villa side. THey played the last 20 minutes a man up after Aly Cissokho was sent off for a silly challenge. Watford have finished the season on a horrible note overall, and this win gives them hope as they will be looking forward to next season.

Guus Hiddink confirms Gary Cahill and John Terry will return to Mondays' match day squad when the Blues take on London rivals Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

The Dutchman revealed Terry has recovered from the Achilles problem which kept him side-lined for the last month while Cahill missed the win at Bournemouth due to illness. In their absence, Hiddink opted for John Obi Mikel to partner Branislav Ivanovic in the heart of the Chelsea defence leaving youngster Matt Miazga on the bench, however, it’s a combination we’ll not be seeing again any time soon. With the skipper not ready to play 90 minutes just yet, Cahill should return to the line-up. Eden Hazard is also expected to be named in the starting XI following his brace in the 4-1 victory at the Vitality.
