MANCHESTER, England (AP) — On a standout day for the Premier League’s underdogs and English managers, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham all dropped points Saturday.
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City was held 2-2 by Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace, further boosting Liverpool’s title hopes, after Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham drew 0-0 with Nigel Pearson’s Watford.
City’s draw means Liverpool can extend its lead to an almost insurmountable 16 points by beating Manchester United on Sunday.
Arsenal’s underwhelming form under new manager Mikel Arteta continued in a 1-1 draw with Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United. Chelsea looked headed for a draw until Isaac Hayden headed in to give Newcastle a 1-0 win in stoppage time.
