All the results and highlights of todays games Liverpool down West Ham to go top.
West Ham 0 Liverpool 3
The Liverpool skipper scored twice in the first half before Ryan Babel sealed all three points late on to keep alive Liverpool’s slimming hopes of wresting the title off Manchester United.
Rafa Benitez’s side took top spot from United on goal difference, but the champions can reclaim that position with anything but defeat in the Manchester derby against local rivals City on Sunday.
Benitez wants favourLiverpool boss Rafael Benitez took his side back to the top with victory over West Ham – then challenged Manchester City to blow the title race wide open.
The Reds’ 3-0 win moved them above Manchester United, who take on their city rivals on Sunday.
He said: “We needed to get three points and put them under pressure, and now we will be cheering and supporting Manchester City.”
Defeat for West Ham saw them fall behind in the race for a European place after Fulham had beaten Aston Villa earlier in the day to pull ahead of both West Ham and Tottenham.
Hull 1 Stoke 2
Hull could find themselves in the drop zone on Monday night after losing to Stoke, who secured their own safety.
The opening goal came when Hull failed to deal with a set-piece and Stoke’s Ricardo Fuller turned to fire a shot between a defender and the post (41).
Liam Lawrence’s dipping strike then left Hull keeper Boaz Myhill stranded (73), and Andy Dawson’s pinpoint free-kick was merely consolation (90).
Blackburn 2 Portsmouth 0
Goals from Morten Gamst Pedersen and Benni McCarthy all but ensured Premier League safety for Blackburn.
Portsmouth failed to deal with a cross and Pedersen fired in from an angle for his first of the season (31).
Hermann Hreidarsson was penalised for handball and McCarthy converted the spot-kick to double the home side’s advantage (58), before sub John Utaka skied a late penalty for the visitors.
Bolton 0 Sunderland 0
Sunderland moved five points clear of the drop zone but failed to take their opportunities against Bolton.
Kieran Richardson had a shot deflected wide for the visitors and then twice fired over the crossbar when well placed as the Black Cats pressed.
Mark Davies had a shot blocked for the hosts and volleyed over, while visiting keeper Marton Fulop produced a superb save to keep out Gary Cahill’s header.
Everton 0 Tottenham 0
Tottenham’s hopes of European football next term faded after an uneventful stalemate at Goodison Park.
The visitors were the better side in the opening period but Ledley King did well to block Jo’s shot after the Brazilian rounded Heurelho Gomes (41).
Everton showed more purpose after the break and Dan Gosling rattled the post after Spurs failed to clear a corner from Steven Pienaar (68).
Fulham 3 Aston Villa 1
Fulham took an important step towards Europa League football with an emphatic win over fast-fading Aston Villa.
Danny Murphy opened the scoring from the penalty spot (6) after Diomansy Kamara was bundled over by James Milner who atoned for his error by crossing for Ashley Young to level (15).
A second half brace from Kamara sealed the points, with his first coming just 26 seconds after the restart.
West Brom 3 Wigan 1
West Brom were given a Premier League lifeline after defeating Wigan.
Marc-Antoine Fortune’s close-range header gave the Baggies the lead (9), but Hugo Rodallega’s deflected free-kick squared things up (17).
And after Chris Brunt saw his penalty saved by Richard Kingson, he followed up the rebound (59) and Fortune sealed the win for West Brom with a low drive with 17 minutes remaining.

Iniesta’s dramatic late strike means that Barcelona are into the Champions League final, so the big question is now can Barcelona can prevent Manchester United FC becoming the first team in 19 years to retain the trophy?
The Liga leaders never got going in the two legs against Chelsea and they face the European Champions at Rome’s Stadio Olimpico on 27 May.
Both teams will be without key players in the final through suspension. Darren Fletcher will be missing for United, while Eric Abidal also collected a second-leg red card and is banned, as is Barça’s usual right-back, Daniel Alves, following his third yellow card of this season’s competition in London. How will Barca cope without both their starting fullbacks? Also missing for Barca will be center half Rafael Márquez.
Whose absence will be most keenly felt? What must Barcelona do to stop United becoming the first side to successfully defend the European Champion Clubs’ Cup since AC Milan in 1990?
Who do you think will lift the trophy – and why? One thing for sure the game will be very open and expect many goals!See below some great footage of the two best players on the planet at the moment.Who will shine most on the big stage Messi or Ronaldo?

The duo confronted referee Tom Henning Ovrebo while the club may be in trouble for failing to control their players.
A Uefa spokesman said: “We will see the report from the referee and match delegate before deciding whether to take any action or not.”
Controversial referee Tom Henning Ovrebo is understood to have been smuggled out of the country by police after receiving death threats.
