It Happened In England: The top four is just about set

Manchester City 6-0 Queens Park Rangers
The fate of QPR is sealed as they fail to look like they were even on the pitch against Manchester City. Sergio Aguero had a hat trick, which was enough on its own. Just for fun, Aleksander Kolarov, David Silva, and James Milner each scored. QPR joins Burnley as the first two teams to drop back down to the Championship this season. They are in last place and unable to catch 17th place Newcastle, who stand nine points in front of them. Manchester City, on the other hand, are now playing in the Champions League for sure.

QPR and Burnley will be joined by either Aston Villa, Leicester City, Sunderland, Newcastle, or, as it stands right now, Hull City.

Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool
It was John Terry scoring early for the champions as they set out to eliminate Liverpool from Champions League contention. Steven Gerrard, who only has two games remaining at Liverpool after this, headed home a corner only a minute before halftime to level the score at the break. This result pretty much seals the top four as Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, and Manchester United, not necessarily in that order. Liverpool's point today means they can still technically catch United for fourth, but the 14 goal gap in goal difference will be pretty tough to make up.
