Harry Redknapp has continued to go against type as he brought in another young player who has never played for him before - things are getting interesting at Loftus Road.

The R's manager has been derided in the media for his recent tendency to buy big veteran names that might not be particularly interested in playing for the club but rather a few final big paychecks. That trend looked like it would continue with the addition of Rio Ferdinand but since then he has signed Steven Caulker, Jordon Mutch and now versatile defender/midfielder Mauricio Isla. It isn't clear how he will be listed in various fantasy games or how he will be deployed since he can play right midfield, right back and center back.

It was a story of non-penalties as David Ospina, Santi Cazorla and Gary Cahill all avoided having penalties called against them as Arsenal and Chelsea drew nil-nil at the Emirates.

Of the three penalty decisions perhaps the most controversial was David Ospina taking out Oscar at the top of the box. Hector Bellerin cleared Oscar's shot off the line. The Chelsea number ten had to be removed at halftime with concussion fears. The match ended nil-nil with very few chances from open play.

Gary Cahill was f I rtunate to avoid being penalized as he blocked an Arsenal shot with an extended arm in the nil-nil draw at the Emirates.

There were three potential first half penalties, two for the Blues and one for Arsenal, but none were called. There were some OK chances both ways but mostly it was a cagey affair as Chelsea again conceded possession and defended stoutly against a top challenger. The draw brings the Blues a step closer to the title.

With less than a month of the season remaining Manchester City will be sweating on the fitness of Yaya Toure after the midfielder failed to emerge for the second half against Aston Villa on Saturday after tweaking his hamstring.

Toure was seen stretching his leg following a heavy challenge by Fabian Delph just minutes before half-time and the Ivorian was substituted at the break. However it was his replacement - Fernandinho - who grabbed the winner to earn all 3-points as the game seemed destined for a draw. Post-match Manuel Pellegrini confirmed his withdrawal was injury related "Toure had a hamstring problem so he couldn't play the second half. It is difficult to know today what happened, but it was not a precaution. It was a muscle injury and we will see tomorrow [Sunday] or Monday how bad it is." Typically a minor grade one tear would mean around 2/3 weeks on the sidelines and anything worse would end his campaign.

Garry Monk remains hopeful that Jefferson Montero will be available for the visit of Stoke in GW35 after the Ecuadorian was replaced during the second half at St James’ Park as a precaution.

The speedy winger was enjoying a fruitful afternoon on Tyneside but Montero indicated to the bench midway through the second half that he was feeling a little tightness in his hamstring. Montero has suffered a number of soft tissue problems this season and rather than risk a recurrence Monk took no chances and introduced Matt Grimes for only his second appearance. Swansea supporters were rocked earlier in the day with the news that Wayne Routledge had been ruled out for the season after undergoing ankle surgery, a move which prompted a recall for Modou Barrow who was on loan at Nottingham Forest. Bafetimbi Gomis is aiming for a return at the Emirates in early May.

Everton put on a dynamic display against Manchester United, beating them at Goodison Park for the third consecutive season in a 3-0 win.

The Toffees jumped ahead early when James McCarthy cleaned up a cross meant for Romelu Lukaku and scored inside of five minutes. Manchester United didn't seem to have a response and as the first half wore on, you felt another Everton goal was coming. It did in the 35th minute when John Stones headed home a Leighton Baines corner, giving the young center back his first top flight goal and a monster fantasy day. The Toffees did well to never take their foot off the gas and Kevin Mirallas put the game to bed by scoring from the bench. It has been a rocky season at Goodison but Everton look to end the season on a strong note.

Manchester United played to their second consecutive loss as they looked flat in their 3-0 defeat at the hands of Everton.

A return to Goodison for Marouane Fellaini was the main storyline for the Red Devils as they looked to rebound from their loss to Chelsea last weekend but they instead played worse. Their defense was unorganized from the jump which led to the early deficit and their attack was dormant. Fellaini picked up a yellow card and was summarily subbed off to begin the second half for Radamel Falcao. Falcao breathed a bit of life into the attack but neither he nor Angel Di Maria who came on later could match the intensity of the opposition. The loss opens the door for Liverpool to edge closer to them for the final Champions League spot.

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.
