Different Strokes For Milan And Man Utd

Liverpool moved up to fifth place in the Premier League on Sunday with an untroubled 3-0 win over Newcastle. Maxi Rodriguez put the home side ahead in the 10th minute before Dirk Kuyt's 59th-minute penalty and Luis Suarez's 65th-minute close-range finish made the game safe. The win moved Liverpool ahead of Tottenham on goal difference. Although Spurs have played one game fewer, their chances of reaching the top four to make the Champions League for a second straight season appear to be over after a 2-1 defeat at Chelsea on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Arsenal revived their faint title hopes with a 1-0 win over league leaders Manchester United at the Emirates, but perhaps more importantly ensured that their London rivals Chelsea are well and truly in the race for the Premier League crown. Aaron Ramsey netted the decisive goal after 56 minutes, slotting home through Michael Carrick's legs and past an unsighted Edwin van der Sar. The Gunners dominated for most of the match against an underwhelming United side, who displayed none of the vim and vigour they showed at Schalke in midweek.

In Serie A, AC Milan edged closer to their first Scudetto in seven years after Mathieu Flamini’s early goal gave them a 1-0 win at home to Bologna. Flamini’s eighth-minute strike gave the Rossoneri a deserved half-time lead but they slumped after the break and Bologna were unlucky not to level, although Milan spurned some late chances to add a second. The result means Massmiliano Allegri’s side are eight points clear of second-placed Inter Milan with three games left: holding a vastly-superior goal difference over their city rivals.
