Ledley King's Talking Points

Spurs' defeat to Liverpool has capped off a rough spell, but a mini league for a top-four place in the Premier League has formed and it's currently in our hands. How we perform in the final seven games will have a huge impact on the success of this season. Moving into the new stadium could be the boost needed.

Sergio Aguero helped Man City keep their advantage in the Premier League title race with his 228th goal in the league. That tally matches Thierry Henry's hoard for Arsenal, and it took the Argentinian 46 fewer games.

Solskjaer capped off his first game as permanent manager of Man United with a win at Old Trafford. Watford were the better team for much of the game and dominated possession for long periods, but Rashford's 10th goal of the campaign and a second-half goal from Martial helped United move up to 4th in the table. 

Chelsea took all the points from Cardiff in hugely controversial style. Neil Warnock stared down the match officials at full-time after they allowed an offiside goal to stand and failed to award the Bluebirds a penalty. The result leaves Cardiff five points from safety, while Sarri just about holds onto his position as Chelsea manager.

Sheff United slipped to third in the Championship after a 3-2 defeat to Bristol City courtesy of an Andreas Weimann hat-trick. It all looked to be going to plan when the Blades took an early lead, but the Robins thought back and took all the points to move within a point of the playoffs. 

Derby demolished Rotherham 6-1 to enhance their grip on the Championship playoff places. Meanwhile Rotherham are a point from safety at the other end of the table while Millwall in the position above them have a game in hand.

Macclesfield held league leaders Lincoln to a draw at Sincil Bank, but Sol Campbell’s side find themselves at the bottom of League Two after Notts County beat Stevenage. They will climb out of the relegation zone if they win their extra game in hand.
