Today In The Premiership...

Aston Villa 0-3 Manchester United. The win means that Manchester United will hold on to the top spot in the league, no matter what Chelsea does against Wigan this afternoon. Had United lost, Chelsea would've been able to grab the lead in the standings, which would have been sort of depressing and not at all appropriate for the holiday season. Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice.

Arsenal 6-2 Blackburn. Both Blackburn goals came from Shabani Nonda, while the Arsenal goals came from... just about everyone in the damn building who showed up in a red shirt.


Manchester City 0-2 Bolton. City's Joey Barton was sent off with a red card late in the game after a vicious two-footed tackle attempt. Credit him for making it off the field without showing anyone his "real nice tight one." City now find themselves just two points out of the relegation zone.

Wigan 1-2 Chelsea. It's not quite over, but Chelsea has a one-goal lead in the second half. They typically don't let go of those things. Lampard and Kalou are your goalscorers for Chelsea, while Emile Heskey is on the board for Wigan.
