LONDON---Leicester s midweek mood changed
from frustration to elation as title rivals Tot-
tenham and Arsenal both missed the chance to
make up ground at the top of the Barclays Pre-
Twenty-four hours after the Foxes were held
to a 2-2 draw at home by West Brom, both north
London sides sunk to costly defeats which left
Claudio Ranieri s men three points clear.
Michail Antonio s seventh-minute header
proved enough for West Ham to clinch a 1-0
victory over Spurs at Upton Park and move Slaven
Bilic s men within a single point of the top four.
Mauricio Pochettino s men had dreamed of
going top of the Premier League for the first time
but they came up short with Harry Kane missing
two fine opportunities to equalise in the second
Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger s Arsenal left the
field to a chorus of boos after falling to a stunning
2-1 home defeat to Swansea, who boosted their
own survival prospects in the process.
Without boss Francesco Guidolin, who is being
treated in hospital for a chest infection, the Swans
hit back after Joel Campbell struck a brilliant
15th-minute opener for the hosts.
Wayne Routledge snatched an equaliser on the
half-hour against the run of play, before both
Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud were denied
by the woodwork.
Gylfi Sigurdsson almost put the visitors in front
from a Jordan Ayew cross but his side were cel-
ebrating after 74 minutes when the Icelandic star
lofted a free-kick from which Ashley Williams
bundled home the winner.
It was Arsenal s second defeat in a row after
Sunday s 3-2 loss at Manchester United and
leaves Wenger s men six points behind the leaders
and looking increasingly out of touch.
Liverpool gained some measure of revenge for
their Capital Cup penalty defeat to Manchester
City by coasting to a 3-0 win over Manuel Pel-
legrini s men at Anfield.
Goals from Adam Lallana, James Milner and
Roberto Firmino left City clinging onto their top-
four place by their fingernails after another des-
perate league show.
Recalled goalkeeper Joe Hart was arguably at
fault for Liverpool s first which Lallana drilled
home in the 34th minute, and seven minutes
later Milner added the second after a superb
through-ball by Firmino.
The Brazilian made it three after 57 minutes
when he took advantage of an inch-perfect pass
from man-of-the-match Lallana to complete the
Manchester United left it late to join City on
47 points with Juan Mata s 83rd-minute free-
kick edging his below-par side past battling Wat-
ford to a 1-0 win at Old Trafford.
The visitors had all the chances with Odion
Ighalo coming close on the stroke of half-time
and Etienne Capoue also firing just over the
Despite starting again with man-of-the-
moment Marcus Rashford, Louis Van Gaal s men
fashioned precious few opportunities and looked
set for another night of frustration until Mata
Newcastle remain rooted in the bottom three
after a 1-0 defeat at Stoke, for whom Xherdan
Shaqiri fired a superb 80th-minute winner to
move the Potters up to seventh in the table.
Spurs, Arsenal and
Man City fall in EPL
right, fights for
