Hull's run-in is frightening, and Sunderland's isn't much easier on the eye. A home game with Leicester is filed under the 'six-pointer' banner and two away games at Chelsea and Arsenal to finish would put the frighteners on most teams.

HALF-TIME

'I'm still worried'

West Brom 2-3 Leicester

West Brom manager Tony Pulis: "I worried about relegation from the first moment I walked in here and I will continue to until we are safe. That is the kind of guy I am.

"We were in control I thought in the first half and we had that chance in the second half when Saido Berahino could have played in Craig Gardner. If we had scored from that I think it would have shut the garden gate.

"As it was we conceded two disappointing late goals."

Tim Sherwood was not the only Villa man pleased as punch at White Hart Lane - his players are pretty happy too.

'We kept on going'

West Ham 1-1 Stoke

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes: "For us it was one of those days, we conceded to a great free kick but we kept going and showed great character.

"We could not quite find the final ball, but credit to the lads because they stuck at it and deserved to get something. They were the better team, so we got some reward but probably not what they should have had."

'Bewildering'

West Ham 1-1 Stoke

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce: "It's bewildering at the moment, since Manchester United we have thrown seven points away in the final seconds of the game. You tally those up, that's 50 points, looking good and its a really good season, but throwing this one away is bitterly disappointing.

"The lads showed a lot of nerves, and it was a very good goal from Stoke but it is difficult to take. We have to be more capable of seeing the game out."

He certainly was ruthless. I've seen Yannick Bolasie mentioned in a few 'teams of the year' tweets from players in the past week. Get on the PFA awards Yannick...

'Not good enough'

Sunderland 1-4 Crystal Palace

Sunderland boss Dick Advocaat said: "We have to recover in 14 days with an away game against Stoke and we have to do better than we did today as this was not good enough.

"After the Newcastle game we did not see this performance coming. We had trained really well this week and the confidence had come back, but in the first half it was not really good. We gave the match away in the first 10 minutes of the second half.

Dick Advocaat
AP

"We could not cope with their pace, but I don't want to complain about the players. We win as a team and lose as a team.

"We still have six matches left and it's in our hands. You cannot lose 4-1 to Crystal Palace in a home game because we need to get results."

Has a Brazil team ever been compared to Crystal Palace though? That's the question.

Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew said: "Our fans were singing 'it's like watching Brazil', and it was today. We were terrific and we caused Sunderland a lot of problems.

"It was an emphatic win and the scoreline didn't even do us justice. We had so many chances. We were great and that's seven away wins out of eight games - at a professional level that's unbelievable.

"We never looked in any danger. This performance won't get many headlines as we're mid-table but it was an outstanding performance."

Dan: "Sherwood is a motivator of players rather than a tactician so far. I prefer Pochettino as our current boss but Sherwood and Villa deserved the points today."

Daz: "Pulis out, WBA are a football team. I never wanted him and we are still going down. Our run in is horrendous."

Matthew: Re: James: Complaining about those who deserve to be in the Spurs team? Try being a Sunderland fan. Shocking performance once again.

'It's a crazy game'

Southampton 2-0 Hull

Steve Bruce

Hull manager Steve Bruce:

"It's a crazy game at times. We certainly didn't deserve, in my opinion, to get beat 2-0.

"We did enough to warrant getting something out of it. But we gave away a bad goal. It was a penalty. And we are where we are because of our inability to score goals.

"The one thing that did disappoint me was a yellow card for Graziano Pelle. I think it warranted a bit more than that.

"If the referee does see the forearm smash across Alex Bruce's face it's certainly a red card. But he's not given it for that."

Craig Andrew Smith: Driving home from the Sunderland match. What's worse than thinking back to that game, is thinking ahead to the remaining fixtures.

Jake Edwards: Huge win for Aston Villa that. Tim Sherwood is a magician. Christian Benteke is a god.

Joe Wedgwood: Cracking retro West Brom kit today. Teams should do it more often! Seem to remember a Manchester United one a few years back v Manchester City.

Burnley v Arsenal (17:30 BST)

In our Arsenal line-up the eagle-eyed among you spotted that we only had 10 players! I can tell you it was Laurent Koscielny who I missed out.

'The win looked unlikely'

West Brom 2-3 Leicester

Nigel Pearson

Leicester boss Nigel Pearson: "The way we started it looked an unlikely outcome. To be fair to the players, in the second half, we showed a lot more quality. We deserved three points, because we never stopped believing we could get something from the game.

"We still have a lot of work to do, but back-to-back wins are very important now and we have to make it three now. We had to try and force the issue late on and Jamie Vardy took the chance late on after we put on that pressure."

Manager reaction

Southampton 2-0 Hull

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman on Graziano Pelle:

"He played well and worked very hard but he has to score goals. That's the best feeling a striker can get.

"He lives to score goals and if it's been a long time it does something for your confidence.

"Now he will be back to the player he was at the beginning of the season."

Yeovil down

Football League - today's movers

Championship: Norwich's late winner at Bolton leaves the top five places unchanged, but Derby drift a couple of points after their early draw with Brentford. Ipswich move into the last play-off sport after holding off a spirited effort from relegated Blackpool.

Yeovil
PA

League One: Relegation bunfight news: Yeovil are down after failing to beat Notts County; Coventry and Scunthorpe edge away from trouble, each reaching the 50-point mark with wins against basement rivals.

League Two: No change at top or bottom, but in the play-off race Plymouth and Stevenage - with a last-gasp winner - are the main beneficiaries of defeats for Newport and Exeter.

West Brom 2-3 Leicester

Former Tottenham striker Garth Crooks

Final Score

"Today could be the turning point for Leicester. I have to change my position because today there was everything I didn't see at Sunderland - a team that wanted to survive."

Tim Sherwood provokes more knee-jerk reactions than most managers - but what are your thoughts tonight Spurs fans? Would you rather have him in the dugout or down the M6 at Villa Park?

'A fantastic result'

Tottenham 0-1 Aston Villa

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood: "It's a fantastic result - we carried on from the good performance in the 3-3 draw against QPR. We thought we could have a good go and we did. I thought we deserved to win. Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy made the decision [to sack me] based on what he thought was the right thing to do. Mauricio Pochettino is doing a good job. Without Spurs giving me the job last year, I wouldn't have been here today to enjoy this win.

Tim Sherwood

"We've got some tough games. No-one gave us a chance here or at Manchester City in the next league game. We're within touching distance. On the downside we picked up a few injuries.

"The club weren't creating chances for Christian Benteke before I arrived. It's about conserving his energy, keeping him high up the field and using him to penetrate teams. The shackles are off him now.

"It's a fantastic result for me and Aston Villa."

Team News

Burnley v Arsenal (17:30 BST)

Arsenal

Burnley name the same team that drew 0-0 with Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham last weekend, with Clarets striker Danny Ings looking to end a 614-minute goal drought that stretches back to the 12th-minute of their defeat by Manchester United on 11 February, and is already the longest he has gone without a goal this season.

The in-form Gunners, who demolished Liverpool 4-1 in their last outing, are also unchanged as they try to become the first top-flight team this season to win eight league games in a row. Defender Laurent Koscielny has shaken off hip and thigh problems to start and goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is back on the bench after recovering from a rib injury.

Burnley starting XI: Heaton; Trippier, Duff, Shackell (c), Mee; Boyd, Arfield, Jones, Barnes; Vokes, Ings

Arsenal starting XI: Ospina, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Coquelin, Cazorla, Ramsey, Ozil, Alexis, Giroud

Tottenham 0-1 Aston Villa

James: "The list of Spurs players who deserve to play in the Premier League is much shorter than the list of those who don't. No passion, desire or commitment coming from anywhere and this defence is Championship standard."

Jim: "I'm bitterly disappointed with Spurs today. Had we won we'd only be four points behind Man City and we are playing them at the Lane next month."
