As the 2012-13 English Premier League campaign ends in three game weeks, we take a look at the brief analysis and come up with stats covering every game in this section.

MANCHESTER CITY 2-1 WEST BROM After losing their crown to fierce rivals, Manchester United, the Citizens provided a brilliant performance outsing West Ham 2-1. Sergio Aguero and Yaya Toure scored for the hosts as Andy Carrol, on loan from Liverpool reduced the deficit with seconds remaining. EVERTON 1-0 FULHAM Sheamus Coleman who was brilliant in defence himself set up fellow team mate and South African Steven Pienaar for the Toffees only but winning goal of the match at Goodison Park. STOKE 1-0 NORWICH CITY Charlie Adam’s goal was the only notable moment that was worthy of remembering in this cagey encounter at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday. SOUTHAMPTON 0-3 WEST BROM Romelu Lukaku was the driving force for the Baggies again in this match as Steve Clarke’s men demolished Southampton in front of their faithful. WIGAN ATHLETIC 2-2 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR The thrilling draw at the end did neither side any favours for obviously different reasons. Spurs blew their chance in the race for the top 4 and Wigan could only blame themselves as Emerson Boyce’s own goal at the very fag end did the Latics no favours. NEWCASTLE UNITED 0-6 LIVERPOOL
Grand old Liverpool at their sublime best. End of story. Newcastle fans would not even want to remember a second of the 90 minutes. READING 0-0 QPR Too poor a match to be even called a one of the EPL. The result meant both of the teams were rightly relegated. BYE BYE!! CHELSEA 2-0 SWANSEA A walk in the park for Benitez’s boys as Swansea couldn’t mount a fightback after they conceded two late goals in the first half which killed off the encounter. Oscar put Chelsea ahead in the 43rd minute with a lovely finish, placed to the far post from just inside the penalty area. Just two minutes later,  Juan Mata was pushed from behind in the penalty area and Mark Clattenburg gave a penalty. Lampard stepped up and buried it, sending Chelsea into the second half with a two-goal lead. ARSENAL 1-1 MANCHESTER UNITED
Theo Walcott put the Gunners ahead just after 103 seconds at the Emirates and it looked as if Manchester United hadn’t come to even play. However, Bacary Sagna’s poor challenge at the nd of the first half awarded United a lifeline as the referee awarded the penalty to the Red Devils. Former Arsenal man, Robbie Van Perise, who was jeered by the home crowd, stepped up and equalized for “his” team. IRONY!!
