Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League while Manchester City closed within a point in a second-place deadlock as both teams won on Saturday. Whether or not they stay in those spots will depend on what happens tomorrow between Arsenal and Chelsea. For now, here's a quick look at all the EPL action from Saturday.
Liverpool 3-1 Cardiff | Full match report
Newcastle extended their unbeaten run to three games with a tidy victory over relegation-battling Crystal Palace. Two goals in the first half proved the difference as Yohan Cabaye fired the Magpies in front in the 25th minute and a Daniel Gabbidon own-goal doubled the lead before halftime. A penalty from Hatem Ben Arfa late sealed the win.
The Potters went ahead in the 50th minute thanks to to Charlie Adam but Libor Kozák pulled Villa back at the 66th minute. Five minutes after that, the Potters found a winner when Peter Crouch scored in the 70th minute.
Both teams had a ton of shots and produced plenty of chances, but a goal just wasn't in the cards as the Black Cats and the Canaries finished scoreless. Sunderland remain firmly planted on the bottom of the table with the result. Just to make things a little worse for the Black Cats, defender Wes Brown picked up a red card three minutes into second-half stoppage time.
Jake Livermore's 28th minute goal looked like it would be enough to carry Hull City to three points, but their hard work was undone late. Zoltán Gera's through ball found Matej Vydra in space in the middle of the Hull box and the striker did not waste his chance, notching an 86th-minute tally to equalize and earn a point for the Baggies.
