Due to the League Cup final, the Premier League returned with a slightly depleted fixture list after a week away to accommodate the fifth round of the FA Cup.
However, the weekend was not short on action, and could prove to have a massive influence on the destiny of the Premier League title; Leicester City struck late to preserve their advantage at the top; Spurs turned around a tough game against Swansea to keep the pressure up; and, predictably, Arsenal fell to a defeat at Manchester United.
Further down the league, West Ham continued their fine season, Chelsea’s revival continued and Aston Villa lost again. So who has made it onto this week’s 3 up 3 down?
