Premier League results. Everton beat hapless Arsenal in a bid to finish fourth.

Everton moved one step closer to Champions League qualification after outclassing poor Arsenal at Goodison Park.

Roberto Martinez tuned his side for a billiant performance against direct rivals for Champions League qualification. Sharp and relentless Toffees hit three past Wojciech Szczęsny and never allowed The Gunners to come close to their own goal. Steven Naismith and Romelu Lukaku scored in the first half and Arteta fired home under the pressure from Kevin Mirallas in the second half to complete a 3-0 win for the hosts. The Liverpool side are now just one point behind Arsenal with one game in hand.

Liverpool continued their winning form with a narrow 2-1 win at Boleyn Ground. Steven Gerrard netted two goals from the spot to give The Reds their ninth consecutive victory in Premier League and retain the leadership in the League with just five matches to go.

Chelsea cruised against mid-table Stoke City as Mohamed Salah scored his first goal at Stamford Bridge. He also set up Willian’s goal, while Frank Lampard completed a 3-0 win. Jose Mourinho is now getting ready to host PSG in the Champions League quarter-final return leg.

Manchester City left few chances to Southampton despite the fact that their second goal was scored after an offside in the build-up. Yaya Toure, Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic netted for the hosts, while Rickie Lambert pulled one back from penalty spot. The Citizens will travel to Anfield for a crucial battle against Liverpool next Sunday.

Manchester United went riot at St. James Park after fielding a creative forward line in Javier Hernandez, Sinji Kagawa and Juan Mata. There was no stopping The Red Devils after Adnan Januzaj replaced Ashley Young early in the match to join the inspired attack. Mata scored twice and set up Januzaj’s goal, Chicharito added another one to complete a 4-0 thrashing. David Moyes now takes his side to Munich to face Bayern Munich.

Crystal Palace have all but secured another Premier League season after a convincing 3-0 victory in Cardiff. Chris Hughton was sacked after Norwich had lost at home to rivals West Bromwich and now lie just one place above relegation zone having to face Premier League giants in four of the last five fixtures. Hull City may feel save after taking three points against Swansea City, Fulham revived their hopes for avoiding relegation after an away victory at Villa Park.
