Latics Look Destined For The Drop

Reading v Wigan

An important game at both ends of the table this one. Reading will secure their play-off place if they do not lose. Meanwhile Wigan must win to have any chance of survival.

Stat Zone

-Reading have lost just two of their home games since Jaap Stam took charge

-Won 12 of their last 15 at home

-Yann Kermorgant has scored seven goals in his last seven games

 

-Wigan have lost their last three away games

-Graham Barrow has won two of seven since he took charge

-Will Grigg hasn’t scored in his last 23 games.

H2H- The home side has only won one of the last six fixtures between the sides - Reading have not beaten Wigan at home since 2007.

Reading will be keen to secure their play-off place and should take advantage of a Wigan side who look destined for the drop. Prediction: Reading 2-0 Wigan

That Concludes Our Night Of Football!

And so our night of football comes to an end.

It was a night for binary lovers with three 1-0 wins in the Premier League that certainly did not thrill. Middlesbrough are still alive by the skin of their teeth whilst Sunderland look down. Arsenal keep their top four hopes alive with a last minute own goal and Spurs' title dream is still on.

Elsewhere in Europe, PSG crushed Monaco 4-0, Dortmund stunned Bayern 3-2 in an absolute thriller whilst in Spain Barcelona won 7-1 leaving Madrid to battle it out in the later kick off. They are well on their way and currently lead 5-1.

Results

  • Arsenal 1-0 Leicester
  • Crystal Palace 0-1 Spurs
  • Middlesbrough 1-0 Sunderland
  • Bayern 2-3 Dortmund
  • PSG 4-0 Monaco
  • Barcelona 7-1 Osasuna
  • Deportivo 1-5 Real Madrid (latest score)

That's your lot from me, thanks for joining me on one of the less-thrilling - but vital - Premier League nights.

Full Time: Crystal Palace 0-1 Tottenham Hotspur

They have held on!

The title race is still on (just) as Eriksen is the difference maker tonight.

That leaves Spurs four points off leaders Chelsea with five games to play.

Full Time: Bayern 2-3 Dortmund

Dortmund have done it! They have reached a fourth successive DFB Pokal final with Ousmane Dembele hitting the winner.

He has had quite the season.

Football
Full Time: Arsenal 1-0 Leicester & Middlesbrough 1-0 Sunderland

As above.

The less said about these two games the better to be honest.

A vital three points for Arsenal to keep their top four hopes alive. Middlesbrough simply had to win tonight to have any chance of playing in the Premier League next season.

Sunderland and David Moyes can start planning for life in the Championship after another tepid performance.

GOAL: Palace 0-1 Spurs (Eriksen)

Christian Eriksen keeps the title race alive!

A wonderful dipping strike from 35+ yards out catches Wayne Henessey off guard and flies into the bottom corner.

Spurs needed that.

Eric Dier Heads Wide

Eric Dier heads wide from a corner in the latest chance in the Spurs v Palace game.

Spurs look more likely to get the winner.

GOAL: Arsenal 1-0 Leicester (Huth O.G)

There was not going to be a goal in this game unless it was an own goal.

Nacho Monreal hits a low shot that hits Robert Huth and skids in.

Arsenal's top four hopes are still alive and Arsene Wenger is eyeing up that new contract.

Cheers Robert.

GOAL(s): Bayern 2-3 Dortmund (Aubameyang and Dembele)

What a turnaround in Germany! Dortmund have come from a goal down to lead 3-2 through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and wonderkid Ousmane Dembele.

This kid is special.

PALACE SUB: Delaney ON Sahko OFF

Oh no that looks really nasty for Mamadou Sakho. The centre half who has been giant for Palace since joining has caught his studs in the ground and twisted his knee, falling horribly,

The stretcher is on for him and he leaves to a standing ovation from the Selhurst Park crowd.

Big Sam shakes his head on the touchline.

This picture is not for the faint-hearted.

Zaha Showing His Class

Spurs may be on top but Palace have an outlet in Wilfried Zaha.

The tricky winger is drawing fouls and looking dangerous.

Spurs Press

Spurs have come out fighting. Quick attacking football is causing Palace problems.

Dele Alli flops like a fish after a push in the box but the referee is not swayed.

A goal could be coming...
