A Premier League weekend lacking surprises – Chelsea are still 10 points clear of Spurs, who have tightened their grip on second place after their win over Southampton and the Etihad draw between Manchester City and Liverpool on Sunday.

Arsenal have work to do, though: their 3-1 defeat to West Brom at The Hawthorns leaves them six points off a top-four spot they're unaccustomed to finishing outside of, albeit with two games in hand. Leapfrogging them into fifth (finally!) are Manchester United; joining them are Everton after a comfortable romp over Hull.

West Brom exist in their own atmosphere, as the Long Table shows – the Baggies are seven points behind Arsenal and Everton, but five ahead of nearest foes Stoke after the Potters' late defeat at home to Chelsea.

Things are getting a little congested in the relatively safe haven of lower-to-mid-table, what with both Leicester and Crystal Palace poking their way towards a bigger crowd of clubs who've barely moved all season. Just three points separate six teams from 10th to 15th, though Southampton have a couple of games in hand.

But that only makes things more perilous at the bottom. Sunderland are now seven points adrift of safety, taking small comfort from Swansea losing at Bournemouth after their goalless draw against Burnley earlier on Saturday. But this is becoming a more exclusive fight than looked to be the case a fortnight ago.
