Premier League scores and review: Wednesday 10 April
Who said that the Premier League title race was over? No sooner had Manchester United gone eight points clear of Manchester City than the Red Devils slipped up at the DW Stadium which means just five points separate the two teams with a Manchester derby taking place later this month at Eastlands.

Wigan Athletic were full value for their 1-0 win on Wednesday night, with Shaun Moloney scoring the only goal of the game in the 50th minute after the home side asserted their authority during the first half and wrongly had a first half goal chalked off.
It allowed City to take full advantage, with Carlos Tevez making his first start since September and the Argentine was on the scoresheet during the team’s 4-0 thrashing of West Brom.
By the time that Tevez had scored in the 61st minute, City were already two goals to the good thanks to the brilliant Sergio Aguero, while David Silva was on hand to add some gloss to the scoreline.
Arsenal are virtually certain of a place in the Champions League next term after a comfortable 3-0 win at Molineux which was never in doubt after Sebastian Bassong was sent off for a foul on Theo Walcott, with Robin Van Persie converting the resulting penalty. Walcott doubled the Gunners’ lead, with Yossi Benayoun scoring a third in the second half.
Queens Park Rangers are now two points clear of danger after a stonking 3-0 win over Swansea City, with Joey Barton getting the first goal of the game.
