  1. Thumbs up to NBCSN for deciding to show the first 10-15 minutes of West Ham-Hull City before turning to Liverpool-Sunderland. Smart move.

  2. Nervy win for Liverpool but they’ll gladly take the 3 points. Now only a point behind Chelsea. They’ll have to play much much better against Spurs if they want to stay in the title race. Still, it means that they are that much closer to finishing no worse than 4th.

    Hull made a real game of it with 10 men but just could not get the draw they deserved. Diame handled the ball before he was brought down by the keeper for the penalty that reduced Hull to 10 men. Controversial decision that. West Ham are now probably safe from relegation so this was a big win for them.

  3. That was a close game for sure, That johnson-Ki link up had me sweating but Suarez looked a bit off tonight
