English Premier League Standings

LONDON, Sporting Alert – Round-up, results and English Premier League standings, following the matches that took place this weekend on April 2-3.

Leaders Leicester City took full advantage of Tottenham’s slip-up after the Foxes registered a narrow 1-0 win over Southampton on Sunday.

Jamaican international Wes Morgan netted the only goal of the match when he leaped above his marker to head into the back of the net in the 38th minute.

On Saturday, Tottenham finished 1-1 at Liverpool, which means the London title chasers failed to trim the gap between them and the leaders.

In fact, Leicester City, after Sunday’s win, moved seven points clear at the top of the Premier League standings on 69 points and will win the club’s first-ever league title with four more wins from their remaining six games.

Tottenham sit second on 62 points.

Also on Sunday, Manchester United kept their chance of finishing in the top four alive with a 1-0 win over Everton at Old Trafford.

Louis van Gaal’s side is now one-point behind city rivals Manchester City.

On the day the club celebrated Sir Bobby Charlton, French striker Anthony Martial scored the 1,000th English Premier League goal for Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, on Saturday third-place Arsenal hammered Watford 4-0, Bournemouth went down to Manchester City by the same scoreline, so too did Aston Villa against Chelsea. Norwich City picked up an exciting last-minute 3-2 win over Newcastle United.
