m in the league and he could be the firs

Did your Premier League team live up to expectations at the weekend? We asked former Arsenal defender and Sky Sports Now guest Nigel Winterburn to grade each side based on their 90-minute performance on Saturday or Sunday. Camiseta Luis Suarez .So how did your team fare? Did they get an A or an F, or somewhere in between? Read on to see how each top-flight side has been ranked... Premier League results Sunderland 2-1 Man Utd Bmouth 1-3 Stoke C Palace 1-2 Watford Everton 0-1 West Brom Norwich 2-2 West Ham Swansea 0-1 Soton Chelsea 5-1 Newcastle Arsenal 2-1 Leicester Aston Villa 0-6 Liverpool Man City 1-2 Spurs Liverpool - A+Villa were woeful but Liverpool made them look poor. The way they moved the ball was superb. Daniel Sturridge and Philippe Coutinho back in the team and its vital they stay fit going forward. Liverpool were outstanding. Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge returned from injury to score the opener in their 6-0 rout of Aston Villa on Sunday Chelsea - AThe way Chelsea went about winning the game in the first 20 minutes was brilliant. The only reason why Im not giving them an A+ is because the result came against Newcastle, a team they would have expected to beat. But you still have to go out and win these games, which Chelsea did so impressively. Cesc Fabregas celebrates with Chelsea team-mate Pedro at Stamford Bridge Stoke - AStoke have had some bad defeats in recent weeks so the way they outplayed Bournemouth at times was very impressive. A much-needed three points.Sunderland - AIt was a terrific performance by Sunderland. Their new players came into the team again and they were energetic, strong and powerful. They showed more desire to win the game and did well to comeback after United equalised - nervousness can creep into a side when that happens. Overall, they got a deserved victory. Sunderlands Yann MVila and Lamine Kone applaud the fans after beating Manchester United Tottenham - ASpurs contained Man City very well in the first half and they benefitted from a dubious penalty call. That changed the game significantly, but take nothing away from Spurs, who were very impressive away from home. Both Super Sunday pundits were in agreement and thought that Tottenham shouldnt have been awarded a penalty West Brom - AThis was a massive victory for West Brom. We know they sit in and defend but I didnt expect them to get anything out of this game. It was a strong defensive performance, particularly after going 120 minutes in the FA Cup in midweek. They were hard to beat and they secured a great result.Arsenal - B+To their credit Arsenal kept going and got the winner late on. Most people expected Arsenal to win the game against a very good Leicester team. Danny Welbecks winner on his comeback will have been welcomed. Danny Welbeck celebrates scoring Arsenals late winner against Leicester Southampton - B+Fraser Forsters great form has seen Southampton pick up unbelievably. It was another good performance from Ronald Koemans side and another clear sheet.Watford - B+I cant grade Watford any higher than a B+ because youve got to consider the form Palace are in. But take nothing away from them, they were impressive and Troy Deeney took his goal at the end well.Norwich - BNorwich got themselves into a great position but yet again they werent able to get the balance between taking the game to the opposition and being able to defend properly. West Ham went the distance in midweek so when Norwich went 2-0 up they should have cruised to victory. The result shows the nervousness that surrounds a club when youre not organised defensively. Despite this, it was a good result for Norwich, although it wont feel like one. Norwich threw two points away at home to West Ham West Ham - BThe Hammers showed great character and proved they are a dangerous team. When you consider the game they had in midweek they deserve a B too.Leicester - B-Leicester were sensational against Man City last week, both in defence and attack they were perfect. They struggled to replicate the attacking side at Arsenal but they did create some decent chances. The sending off really swung the game in favour of the home team, so Im not going to be harsh on Leicester with the grade, they defended very well. Jamie Vardy of Leicester City celebrates with team-mates after scoring the opening goal Man City - C+Man City put in an improved second-half display after nervousness perhaps crept in after the defeat to Leicester. City are a team that needs to get their balance right, they didnt keep possession in the first half as Spurs got in among them. The result will come as a blow for City, who will have felt aggrieved with the awarding of Spurs penalty. Citys defeat to Spurs will have come as huge blow to their title charge Everton - CIts always difficult when you lose at home but Evertons performance wasnt that bad in terms of chances created. But, again, they are conceding too many goals, far too many for a team that is so talented. They are exciting to watch but they have to get that balance right.Bournemouth - C-I was disappointed with Bournemouth. I like watching them play, they are very energetic and usually start games very well but Stoke were impressive. The Cherries would have expected to get something from this game so Im sure theyll share my disappointment. Joselu of Stoke City celebrates scoring his teams third goal at Bournemouth Crystal Palace - C-Palace are in free fall and they are really struggling. Alan Pardew would have expected to get something from this game, despite the fact Watford have done very well this season.Manchester United - C-The defeat at Sunderland means its another step back for Manchester United. They performed well at Chelsea last week but couldnt follow it up as inconsistency resurfaced. I cannot mark them any higher than I have.Swansea - DI am really worried about Swansea because they look short of goal scorers in their squad. They would have expected to get something from this home game, they didnt so its got to be a D. Shane Long sealed Southamptons victory at Swansea Newcastle - FNewcastle were woeful, say no more. Their hopes of Premier League survival hinge on their home games against the teams around, so it will be very interesting to see whether they can avoid the drop.Aston Villa - U (unmarked)I cannot mark Aston Villa, it is impossible. What is the lowest mark I can give? I could go to the bottom of the alphabet. It is shocking and, unfortunately, its not just one performance - its happening quite a bit. You look for energy, desire, organisation and players taking responsibility in a team thats struggling. Villa clearly havent got any of that. Liverpool ran riot against a woeful Aston Villa side on Sunday They have no chance of staying up! All they can do now is show some guts and determination between now and the end of the season to get any sort of pride back.Watch Sky Sports Now weekdays from 10am to 12pm, Sky Sports News HQ.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Mark Few wondered how his eighth-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs would handle a nine-day break for exams, traveling cross country and playing in front of a heavily orange crowd.Tennessee coach Rick Barnes saw enough Sunday to think Few and Gonzaga still might be undefeated when March rolls around.Nigel Williams-Goss scored 20 points, and Gonzaga remained unbeaten by holding off Tennessee 86-76.I thought they did good, especially the way we started the first half, Few said. Usually when you come out of finals like this, youre a little bit concerned about losing rhythm. We had some pretty good rhythm going into finals. Gave them several days off, I was a little bit worried about that. They responded.Gonzaga (11-0) hadnt played since beating Akron on Dec. 10 and looked strong as it scored the first eight points and never trailed. The Bulldogs led 27-6 on a jumper by Zach Collins with 12:06 left, 43-29 at halftime and 64-48 midway through the second half.Tennessee (6-5) went on a 10-3 run and got within 75-71 on a jumper by Robert Hubbs III with 2:26 left.Josh Perkins then hit a jumper as Gonzaga held on for its fourth straight win in the five games between these teams.Obviously we werent perfect, but to come in here and beat a good Tennessee team by double digits, and pretty much control the entire game, I thought we did a good job, Williams-Goss said. But theres room to grow.This was billed as the Battle of Broadway played at Bridgestone Arena, so technically it was a neutral court -- except for all the fans wearing Tennessee orange in the seats. Those fans got very loud as the Vols made their run.Barnes wasnt happy with how the Vols started, and hes tiring of coming close in losses.Its one thing being talked about as being a scrappy team that fights all the time, but at some point in time weve got to want to be more than that, he said. Weve got to want to play 40 minutes, and we havent done that at any point in time this year.Detrick Mostella ledd Tennessee with 17 points and Hubbs had 10. Camiseta Andres Iniesta. The Vols played without 6-foot-7 freshman John Fulkerson, who missed his first game since dislocating his right elbow in Thursday nights win over Lipscomb.

They improved to 12-8 all-time against Southeastern Conference teams and 2-0 this season. Gonzaga beat Florida last month. ... With 7-1 center Karnowski and 6-9 Johnathan Williams, the Bulldogs outrebounded Tennessee 42-38.Tennessee: This was the Vols fourth game in eight days, a stretch that started a week ago with a 73-71 loss in Chapel Hill to No. 7 North Carolina. ... Barnes now is 0-5 against Gonzaga and 0-4 against Few. ... Freshman Grant Williams scored 30 points in the Vols last game and finished with 11.QUOTABLEI think hes got as good a team as hes ever had, Barnes said of Few. I think hes going to become an even bigger story in college basketball because if you look ahead, hes always done tremendous things with his team in the league and he could be the first time in a long time that youve got a team capable of being undefeated heading into postseason play.FOUL TROUBLEThe officiating crew of Karl Hess, Jamie Luckie and Brent Hampton called 56 fouls combined. Gonzaga and Tennessee each had a player foul out with Silas Melson playing 18 minutes before his fifth foul for the Bulldogs, while Jordan Bowden had nine points in 27 minutes for the Vols. Gonzaga finished the game with four players having four fouls apiece.UP NEXTGonzaga: The Bulldogs host South Dakota on Wednesday.Tennessee: At East Tennessee State on Thursday night.---More AP college basketball: and NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
