Perhaps the most coveted spots in all of English soccer, a top four finish in the Premier League ensures a berth into the richest club competition in Europe: the UEFA Champions League. Each year, teams spend millions in the hopes of keeping a place in the top four, or breaking into the fraternity at the top of the Premier League, in order to see some of the revenues that come with playing on those mid-week European nights.

The Premier League title race is just one of the main talking points this week as battles at either end of the table offer plenty of drama. Manchester City sliced the Premier League title gap to two points with a 3-1 home victory over Arsenal on Sunday. Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick as the Gunners lost ground to Manchester United and Chelsea in the race for a top-four finish - and lucrative Champions League qualification.

Another week, another Premier League round done and (almost dusted). While West Ham versus Liverpool is still to come, here’s what I made of the weekend’s action. Cardiff vs Bournemouth Neil Warnock called on his players to regroup and did they ever. Bobby Reid proved the star scoring twice on his birthday as Cardiff set out in a more adventurous 4-4-2.

Eddie Howe undoubtedly left incandescent with Steve Cook’s brain-fade. The defender absurdly swatted the ball away with his hand high above his hand leaving the referee no choice. Despite their lethargy, Bournemouth almost had a leveller on 26 minutes. Andrew Surman’s searing left footed strike was only denied by a wondrous Neil Etheridge save onto the crossbar. This was merely a flash in the pan, as Oumar Niasse caused all sorts of problems in behind … [Read more...] about Premier League Saturday review
