LONDON (AP) — While Spain's top three all won, none of the England's leading sides could produce a victory on Saturday.

Chelsea remains top of the Premier League despite losing 1-0 at lowly Crystal Palace after title rivals Arsenal and Manchester City drew 1-1, presenting Liverpool with the chance to go top on Sunday with a win at Tottenham.
