Victor Anichebe made his first goal for West Bromwich Albion a memorable one, coming on as a substitute in the second half and promptly scoring the goal that would level the match with Liverpool in an exciting 1-1 contest.

With Nicolas Anelka out injured and Shane Long off to Hull City, the seldom used Anichebe got a rare crack at some pitch time and made the most of it. WIth Liverpool in possession deep in their own territory, Kolo Toure made a wayward pass that Anichebe was able to intercept easily and finished strong in the bottom left corner of the net. The defense played admirably, especially given a first half injury to Jonas Olsson that saw him forced into an early exit. Zoltan Gera was also solid in attack, seemingly at the center of every chance for the Baggies with the exception of the Anichebe goal.

Sadio Mane scored a hat trick after Shane Long opened the scoring and Southampton beat Manchester City 4-2.

Manchester City rested Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and Vincent Kompany and were without the injured David Silva. The Saints took advantage and scored four against the Champions League semi-finalists. The win doesn't mean much for the Saints but it strengthens Arsenal's position in third and makes the race for fourth an exclusively Manchester affair.

Kelechi Iheanacho scored on either side of halftime but it wasn't nearly enough as City fell 4-2 at St. Mary's.

City rested a number of starters ahead of the second leg of their Champions League semi-final in Madrid in mid-week. Academy product Iheanacho tried his best to keep City moving forward in the race for a Champions League place for next season but he was outdone by Sadio Mane and his hat trick.

The decision to leave Ryan Bennett out of the team sheet may have boggled fans and fantasy managers alike, but Alex Neil confirmed there was ample reason.

The Norwich City manager said Bennett had been sick in the week leading up to Saturday's 1-0 loss to Arsenal, and, despite training on Friday, wasn't available to face the Gunners: "We were hoping he was going to be involved. He did a bit of training on Friday, the first he'd done in a week, but he took a bad reaction when we were trying to get him ready, and he wasn't ready." Without Bennett, the Canaries defense held up fairly well with Sebastien Bassong paired up with Russell Martin while Ivo Pinto started at right back in the absence of Andre Wisdom and Timm Klose.

Danny Drinkwater can consider himself a little fortunate despite his sending off at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Drinkwater picked up his second booking of the game on 86 minutes as he hauled Memphis Depay back to give away a free-kick on the edge of the Leicester penalty area. However, it could’ve been a lot more if referee Michael Oliver had deemed that the foul had taken place inside the 18-yard area. The Foxes survived the resultant Rooney free-kick and with it earned themselves a 1-1 draw to edge closer to their first Premier League title. Andy King is expected to face Everton at the King Power next weekend while Jamie Vardy will return to the squad following his suspension.

Anthony Martial scored in the 8th minute from an Antonio Valencia cross and Manchester United held the Foxes from securing the title at Old Trafford with a 1-1 draw.

United were in search of points of their own as they look to chase down Arsenal and/or Manchester City for fourth and a spot in next season's Champions League. Martial, United's best attacker all season did the business and United limited Leicester City to a single Wes Morgan goal for the final 1-1 score.

Wes Morgan scored a Danny Drinkwater free kick to equalize at Old Trafford in the 17th minute of the 1-1 draw.

Morgan is not particularly known for his goal-scoring but he is earning his captaincy with goals down the stretch as Leicester drive for the title. Provider Drinkwater was sent off late for a second yellow card so the Foxes will play Week 37 with Jamie Vardy back but Danny Drinkwater absent.

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.

Andre Ayew collected his first Premier League brace as a well-oiled Swansea attack saw them topple Liverpool, 3-1.

It was all Swansea all day in a rainy afternoon at the Liberty Stadium. After steady pressure from the opening whistle, they broke through in the 20th minute when Ayew headed home from a Gylfi Sigurdsson corner. In the 33rd minute, Jack Cork carried the ball to the edge of the area and curled a beauty into the corner of the net. The Reds would pull one back in the second half but it only took two minutes for Swansea to cancel it out when Liverpool failed to clear a Jefferson Montero cross and Ayew pounced on the ball, squeezing it inside the post. Swansea were probably safe from relegation already, but today's win seals their fate and they were long overdue for a convincing performance like they had today.

Jurgen Klopp rang in the changes once again for Liverpool following their Europa League match on Thursday, but today's recipe fell flat in a 3-1 loss to Swansea City.

While the Reds were able to find success a couple of weeks ago with a similar team sheet against AFC Bournemouth, the rotation plan was not prepared for a energized Swansea side. Teenager Pedro Chirivella was handed his first league start and partnered Kevin Stewart as the deep lying midfielders to protect the back line. The Swans cut through them like a knife through hot butter. Chirivella was replaced to begin the second half, but by then it was too late. Christian Benteke scored a much-needed goal to bring the Reds back to within one, heading home a Seyi Ojo corner, but Liverpool would conceded again just two minutes later. A second yellow card and sending off of Brad Smith ended any hope of a comeback. Europa League is certainly top of mind for Liverpool and hopefully a result like today's will not dampen their spirits.

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.
