Arsenal have reportedly offered relegated Cardiff City £6m for goalkeeper David Marshall which the club have rejected.

Arsenal are in need of a reserve goalkeeper who can push Wojciech Szczesny and play significant minutes in the Premier League should Szczesny be injured, suspended, or fail to continue his maturation. It is hard to judge goalkeepers who play for bad teams because they face so many great scoring opportunities but Marshall kept Cardiff City in matches they had no business being close in. This is likely to give a club a strong reason to believe that Marshall would be a strong number two playing behind the likes of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny.

A number of mistakes ended up costing Aston Villa points at the Etihad as they lost 3-2 to Manchester City.

Aston Villa started the match extremely poorly after Brad Guzan gifted Sergio Aguero an open net when trying to connect a pass across the back. It was possibly Aguero's easiest goal of his career and it was the start Manchester City needed. Villa were able to fight back and eventually tie the match 2-2, but a late Fernandinho goal gave City a much needed three points. Aston Villa will surely be disappointed as they must feel they deserve more than zero points from this match. They are now just two points above the relegation zone and are still strongly involved in the relegation race.

Boaz Myhill and West Brom surprised Liverpool at the Hawthorns as the keeper made five saves and kept a clean sheet in the nil-nil draw.

Apparently Tony Pulis got his message across. After three miserable weeks in a row, the Baggies have responded with two consecutive clean sheets over teams ahead of them in the table. Last weekend it was a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace. This week Boaz Myhill recorded five saves and kept a clean sheet as neither team was able to find the back of the net at Anfield. Neither side were particularly impressive but there were a lot of clean sheet points to go around.

QPR's hopes of avoiding relegation from the Premier League were hit as Charlie Austin missed a penalty as they could only draw at home against West Ham.

Austin's first-half penalty, awarded after a handball from James Collins, was saved by West Ham goalkeeper Adrian to keep the score at 0-0. At the other end the Hammers' left-back Aaron Cresswell had a 25-yard free-kick tipped over by QPR goalkeeper Robert Green, but that was the only real chance for the away side. The hosts pushed for the win and thought they had won it when Richard Dunne headed in, but the goal was ruled out by referee Mike Jones. The draw keeps QPR in the relegation zone while West Ham remain in 10th.

It wasn't a scintillating match but Simon Mignolet made a key save on James Morrison when it counted to keep Liverpool even in the nil-nil draw at the Hawthorns.

The draw effectively dropped Liverpool out of the Champions League running with Manchester City six points ahead with a match yet to play against Aston Villa this week. Even if Liverpool win their make-up match in mid-week they will be hard pressed to make up the gap to fourth. Mario Balotelli got a rare start and didn't contribute much while Jordan Henderson and Philipe Coutinho at least had decent chances. Overall, the loss showed all of the same issues as the Reds FA Cup semi-final loss to Aston Villa last weekend. Not a good way to be closing out the season.

Swansea City received a huge performance from Nelson Oliveira as they became the latest club to beat up on Newcastle United with a 2-3 win at St. James' Park.

Oliveira seems to have answered the question as to who is the clear striker behind Bafetimbi Gomis with his play today. He had a hand in all three goals. He scored the first one on a header by way of a Gylfi Sigurdsson corner. He then played a decoy when Sigurdsson scored his second, drawing defenders away to allow Siggy room to operate. He then grabbed an assist as Jack Cork played a 1-2 and Oliveira found Cork in front of net for what turned out to be the game-winner.

Charlie Adam scored another great goal to equalize an early Sunderland goal and seal the final score between Stoke City and Sunderland at 1-1.

In a match that saw an Asmir Begovic error gift Connor Wickham a first minute goal, Charlie Adam led the charge as Stoke City equalized and eventually drew the match. The early error not withstanding, the Potters were the better team for nearly the entire match dominating possession and shots on target on their home turf. Despite some strong opportunities they couldn't find a winner and had to settle for a 1-1 draw with the Black Cats. Adam's goal was his third in four matches in the month of April.

Connor Wickham scored in the first minute but Sunderland were dominated for the rest of the match and dropped into the relegation zone after having to settle for a 1-1 draw.

Their lone goal was more luck than it was skill or even endeavor and it showed for the final 89 minutes as Sunderland fell into the relegation zone with a 1-1 draw at the Britannia. Wickham's goal was the direct result of an Asmir Begovic error and after that there weren't many chances for Dick Advocaat's men. Jermain Defoe had a credible chance but within two minutes of him missing out, Charlie Adam scored another stunner for the final 1-1 scoreline. Stoke City had most of the chances to find a winner but neither side could manage it in a match that was tense because of the implications for Sunderland.

Jamie Vardy scrambled a winner to lift Leicester out of the Premier League relegation zone just seconds after bottom club Burnley missed a penalty.

A match to define the fine margins in the Premier League. With the game at 0-0 Burnley were awarded a penalty after Paul Konchesky fouled Matty Taylor. Taylor stepped up but hit the post and Leicester raced to the other end, with Vardy bundling the ball over the line after Tom Heaton had prevented a Michael Duff own goal. Leicester move out of the relegation zone after a run of four wins in a row, while Burnley are without a goal in five games and look doomed, five points from safety

Newcastle United dropped their seventh straight, losing at home to Swansea City 2-3.

More heartbreak for the Magpies though they may have a reason for optimism in their final four matches. Siem De Jong, sidelined since last August, made his first appearance since his return and promptly scored in the 88th minute to pull Newcastle back to within a goal though it turned out to be too little, too late. More encouragement from Ayone Perez, who ended a goal drought that lasted well over 1,000 minutes as he scored the opener. Darryl Janmaat picked up a knock that wasn't serious enough to take him off immediately, but he did eventually get replaced, leaving an element of doubt as to his availability next week. The Magpies have a nice schedule for their final four games. De Jong may prove a nice play before it is all said and done.

Chelsea may have to rely on veteran striker Didier Drogba for the upcoming Premier League matches against Arsenal at the Emirates on Sunday plus the midweek trip to the King Power if the latest reports are to be believed.

The Daily Mail understands that Diego Costa has not responded as hoped to treatment and won’t be risked at the Emirates while the Spanish international is also said to be struggling for Wednesday despite the managers’ optimism during Fridays’ press-conference. With Loic Remy "out for sure" tomorrow the Frenchman may not recover in time which means Dominic Solanke will deputise. The young striker has played just 17 minutes for the first team but was withdrawn from the under-21 squad on Thursday in an effort to keep him fresh for this weekend.

Graziano Pelle was sharp for Southampton today, scoring twice, but the Saints would allow Tottenham to erase two leads as the battle for fifth place ended in a 2-2 draw.

Coming into today, Pelle had scored just one league goal in 2015, but he broke out of his slump in convincing fashion. His first goal was pure determination. Sadio Mane raced into the final third of Spurs but was dispossessed. Ryan Mason took the ball to turn up the pitch but he slipped for a moment and Pelle pounced, slotting a low shot past Hugo Lloris. After Spurs had leveled, he scored from a header thanks to a lovely cross from Shane Long. Spurs would equalize once more shortly thereafter though and the two sides traded blows down the stretch but ultimately a draw was the result, and deservedly so.
