[WINNERS & LOSERS] Manchester United extended its lead in the English Premier League to four points with 3-0 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford while Arsenal's title hopes are fading after it fell to Chelsea, 2-1, in the second half of the Easter Sunday Grand Slam in the English Premier League. Spanish teenager Bojan Krkic was instrumental in keeping Barcelona very much alive in Spain's La Liga race, while AC Milan's 18-year-old Brazilian Alexandre Pato kept up his torrid pace.

Winners

MANCHESTER UNITED. Manchester United extended its lead in the English Premier League to four points with 3-0 win over Liverpool at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Wes Brown, Cristiano Ronaldo and Nani.

BOJAN KRKIC. Barcelona's 17-year-old striker, Bojan Krkic, set up Samuel Eto's for the first goal and scored two himself to lead the Catalan club to a 4-1 win at Real Valladolid that moved it to within four points of leader Real Madrid in Spain's La Liga race.

LUCA TONI. Italy striker Luca Toni scored twice for Bayern Munich in a 2-1 win over third-place Bayer Leverkusen and upped his league-leading total to 16 goals. Bayern Munich widened its lead at the top of the Bundesliga to seven points with the win.

ALEXANDRE PATO. AC Milan's 18-year-old Brazilian Alexandre Pato scored its only goal in a 1-0 win at Torino, his seventh league goal in 13 games since becoming eligible in January.

LYON. French leader Lyon moved a step closer to a seventh successive Ligue 1 title with a 4-2 home win over Paris St. Germain on Sunday. Fred scored twice for OL, which now leads Bordeaux by nine points with just eight matches left.

Losers

ARSENAL. The Gunners' title hopes are fading after they fell to Chelsea, 2-1, in the second half of the Easter Sunday Grand Slam in the English Premier League. Didier Drogba scored twice in the last 17 minutes to give Chelsea the victory after Arsenal had taken the lead with a header from defender Bacary Sagna as the hour mark approached. The loss dropped Arsenal into third place, five points behind United and four behind Chelsea.

REAL MADRID. Angel Arizmendi's goal in the 89th minute gave Valencia a 3-2 win at Real Madrid that reduced Madrid's lead over Barcelona to four points. Real's Raul and Valencia striker David Villa scored two goals apiece in wild game at the Bernabeu Stadium.

INTER MILAN. The Italian champion's lead over Roma dropped to four points when it fell to third-place Juventus, 2-1, and second-place Roma beat Empoli by the same score.
