A fiery weekend of football!
Premier League MW 33
Southampton 1 vs. 3 Liverpool
Shane Long gave Southampton a surprising lead in the 9th minute, which only seemed to wake Liverpool up. Keita then equalised in the 36th minute but for most of the game Southampton were able to hold on. Salah then scored a brilliant solo goal in the 80th minute to give Liverpool the lead while Henderson made it 3 in the 86th minute. Liverpool move back to the top having played a game more than City while Southampton drop into 17th.
Bournemouth 1 vs. 3 Burnley
Barnes scored an own goal in the 4th minute to give Bournemouth the lead but Chris Wood and Westwood scored in the 18th and 20th minutes to complete a comeback for Burnley. Barnes then redeemed himself by making it 1-3 in the 56th minute as Burnley rise to 14th with the win. Bournemouth drop into 13th and only 2 points ahead of Burnley.
Huddersfield 1 vs. 4 Leicester
Leicester continued their winning run with a comfortable victory against Huddersfield. Tielemans scored a beautiful goal to give Leicester the lead in the 24th minute while Vardy scored in the 48th minute to double Leicester’s lead. Mooy scored via the penalty spot in the 52nd minute to give Huddersfield some hope but Maddison and Vardy added late goals to seal the deal for Leicester. Leicester move into 7th with the victory level on points with Wolves but Wolves have a game in hand.
Newcastle 0 vs 1 Crystal Palace
It took a Milivojevic penalty in the 81st minute to break the deadlock and give Palace three points as they recovered from their recent loss. Newcastle drop into 15th with the loss while Palace move into 12th with the win.
Everton 1 vs. 0 Arsenal
Everton continued their good form with a hard fought victory against Arsenal. Jagielka scored in the 10th minute and it has to be said that Everton were the bigger threat for large parts of the game. Arsenal were not at the races and so they missed their chance to go 3rd and drop massive points in the race for the Champions League. Everton climb up to 9th with the win while Arsenal remain 4th with Chelsea still to play.
FA Cup Semi-Finals
Man City 1 vs. 0 Brighton
Jesus scored in the 4th minute and City held on for the rest of the game as Brighton tried their best to comeback into the game. Brighton put in a good account of themselves but City just had that early moment of magic and so they reach the final of the FA Cup on their journey for a potential quadruple.
Watford 3 vs. 2 Wolverhampton
This was much more of a semi-final as two evenly matched teams in form went head to head. Doherty gave Wolves the lead in the 36th minute and Jimenez doubled the lead in the 62nd minute as it looked like Wolves would reach the final. Watford had other plans and Deulofeu brought Watford back into the game in the 79th minute and Deeney equalised via a penalty in the 94th minute proving that he has cojones. Deulofeu then scored the winner in extra time to send Watford to the FA Cup final.
