The upper echelon had its way with the lower echelon. There were no spoilers this weekend. It got bleaker for all the drop zone candidates.
Sunderland went down to Everton tamely, 0-2.
The relegation dogfight also saw Stoke, Blackburn, Middlesbrough, West Brom, Newcastle, and Portsmouth going down. Even Bolton who dreww against Wigan should not count themselves out of the woods.
Its left to Phil Brown and Hull to see if they can spring a surprise tomorrow against Villa.
