Results from Saturday with impact on rankings

Here are some scores from around Europe on Saturday that could have some impact on the final rankings.

English Premier League
Aston Villa 2, West Brom 1
The Villains jumped out a 2-0 lead and held on for the win. Liverpool dropped points in a 0-0 draw with Stoke, while Chelsea or Manchester United (or both) will drop points today in their clash. All of a sudden, Villa is looking as much title challengers as Champions League challengers.

La Liga
Deportivo 1, Sevilla 3; Valencia 3, Villareal 3
Sevilla moved up to second in the league, ahead of Valencia, with these two results. Sevilla won despite going down to 10 men while facing a 1-0 defecit. Brazilians Luis Fabiano and Renato were among the goal scorers for Sevilla. Valencia led 2-0 early, but Villareal twice came from behind on the road to share the spoils. Giuseppe Rossi completed the comeback with a late penalty kick.
