Howard's Everton edges closer to Arsenal

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Tim Howard's Everton remained in the hunt for a top four EPL spot and a berth in the Champions League as the Toffees won, 3-0, at Newcastle United for their fourth win in a row while fourth-place Arsenal conceded a late own goal and had to settle for a 2-2 tie with Swansea City at home.

Everton trails the Gunners by six points but has a game in hand and a home date against them slated for April 6.

In Germany, John Brooks again got a start for Hertha Berlin but could not hold off Bayern Munich, whose 3-0 win clinched the Bundesliga the earliest in its history.

In Mexico, Jose Torres returned to action for Tigres in its 3-0 win over Veracruz that moved it into the final of the Copa MX.
