Weekend Football Review

Title race is once again back on!

Premier League MW 25

Tottenham 1 vs. 0 Newcastle

Son scored the only goal in the 83rd minute as Tottenham just about managed to get a win against Newcastle. Son has been their saviour over the past two weeks and Tottenham remain in 3rd place 2 points behind City and 7 ahead of Chelsea. Newcastle drop a place down into 15th with the loss. 

Brighton 0 vs. 0 Watford

Brighton and Watford played out a boring draw as neither team created any real opportunities. Brighton remain 13th in the table while Watford move one place up into 8th with the point. 

Burnley 1 vs. 1 Southampton

After a scoreless first half Redmond gave Southampton the lead in the 55th minute but while it looked like Southampton were heading for another win Barnes showed up in the 94th minute to convert a penalty to share the points between the teams. Burnley remain 17th while Southampton remain 16th. 

Crystal Palace 2 vs. 0 Fulham

Milivojevic scored a first half penalty and Schlupp scraped in a second in the 87th minute to seal three important points for Palace in a London Derby. Fulham’s task for safety becomes even more difficult as they remain 19th and 7 points off of safety. Palace climb into 14th with the win. 

Everton 1 vs. 3 Wolverhampton

Neves opened the scoreline for Wolves with a 7th minute penalty, but Gomes equalised for Everton in the 27th minute. Jiminez then managed to give Wolves the lead before halftime. Dendoncker scored his first goal for the Wolves in the 66th minute and sealed an important win for them. Everton drop down into 9th with the loss while Wolves remain 7th but 4 points clear of the rest.

Cardiff City 2 vs. 0 Bournemouth

Reid scored a first half penalty and a goal in the second half to seal 3 crucial points for the Welsh team on an emotional night. Bournemouth continued their inconsistent form and so found themselves remain 10th. Cardiff remain 18th as well but 2 points off of 15th placed Newcastle. 

Leicester 0 vs. 1 Man United

Rashford scored in the 9th minute to seal three points for United although Leicester deserved to have at least managed a point from the game. De Gea made a fine save in the second half and Leicester missed a couple of brilliant opportunities. United finally move out of 6th into 5th with the win as they are 2 points behind 4th placed Chelsea. Leicester remain 11th with the loss. 

Man City 3 vs. 1 Arsenal

City continued to pile the pressure on Liverpool as they comfortably beat Arsenal at the Etihad. Aguero scored a hattrick with his first coming in the 1st minute. Arsenal equalised 10 minutes later through Koscielny but it was short lived. Aguero scored right before half time and then handed the ball into the net in the 61st minute. City now go within three points of Liverpool while Arsenal drop down into 6th 3 points behind Chelsea.

West Ham 1 vs. 1 Liverpool

Liverpool might just be bottling under the pressure as they drew their second successive game with upcoming fixtures not getting any easier. Mane scored in the 22nd minute but Antonio scored 6 minutes later to level the scoreline.
