Premier League weekends keep rolling, as Round 16 commenced this weekend, and only two games took place on Sunday with Manchester United defeating Liverpool 3-0 and Tottenham defeating Swansea City, 2-1.
David de Gea was the hero for United with multiple important stops as United captured their sixth consecutive league win, and Liverpool now sits in 10th place with 22 points. The opening goal from Wayne Rooney was followed by a controversial headed score from Juan Mata, where it appeared he was offside, while Van Persie essentially notched the game-clinching strike on the counter attack in the 71st minute.
The Spurs bolstered their position in the standings, and Harry Kane got the victorious home side off to a quick lead with his header in the 4th minute. After striker Wilfred Bony knotted the scoreline at 1-1, former Ajax man Christian Eriksen blasted the result-deciding shot for Tottenham, snagging the advantage in the 89th minute.
