This Saturday in the Premier League has been business as usual for just about everyone. The Cardiff-Hull result would be slightly surprising if Cardiff weren't a dumpster fire. And hey, good on Fulham for getting an away point!
This game was excruciatingly boring for all but a few fleeting moments until stoppage time. Then Tim Howard turned in an own goal off a Frank Lampard free kick.
Arsenal 4-1 Sunderland
Mesut Özil was benched for this one, but it didn't matter. Tomas Rosicky was excellent in his place, scoring one of Arsenal's best goals of the season. Also, Olivier Giroud was great in his return, notching two goals and an assist.
Cardiff 0-4 Hull
Good god, Cardiff suck.
A pretty typical City-Stoke game. Stoke tried to play for a draw, they did a decent job, City eventually scored. Yaya Toure was the man who got it done for the Citizens, hitting the back of the net in the 70th minute.
West Bromwich Albion 1-1 Fulham
Fulham stunned the Baggies in the 28th minute when Ashkan Dejagah hit the back of the net, but they couldn't hold on for the win. Matej Vydra equalized in the 86th minute, poking in a square ball from Victor Anichebe after a well-executed indirect free kick. West Brom had a couple of chances to win the game, but Maarten Stekelenburg turned in a rare good performance.
At some point, Southampton realized that relegation and Europa League were both impossible, so they started to mail it in a bit. Maya Yoshida scored the opener, but things went downhill fast for the Saints. Matthew Jarvis equalized in the 20th minute and Carlton Cole put the Hammers in front three minutes later. Kevin Nolan capped off the scoring, sealing the win for his team in the 71st minute.
