Midweek Football Review

More intense than ever!

Premier League MW 36

Newcastle 1 vs. 3 Tottenham

Spurs got a good win at Newcastle and Mourinho’s first in his career as Son gave Spurs the lead in the 27th minute. Ritchie managed to equalise for Newcastle in the 56th minute but Kane restored the lead 4 minutes later. Kane sealed the deal in the 90th minute with another goal. Newcastle remain 13th in the table while Tottenham move up to 7th and a point from 6th placed Wolves. 

Burnley 1 vs. 1 Wolverhampton

Jimenez gave Wolves the lead in the 76th minute but Wood managed to convert a 96th minute penalty to get a point for Burnley. Burnley remain 10th and essentially miss out on any European adventures, although it is still mathematically possible. Wolves remain 6th but that’s the best that they can do as their main goal will be to secure the spot over the next two games. 

Man City 2 vs. 1 Bournemouth

David Silva and Jesus scored in the 1st half while Bournemouth got a consolation goal from Brooks in the final few minutes. City go within 18 points of Liverpool while Bournemouth remain 18th 3 points from safety although West Ham and Watford play each other on Friday night.

Arsenal 2 vs. 1 Liverpool

Mane gave Liverpool the lead in the 20th minute but it all went downhill for the champions after that. Lacazette equalised from a Van Dijk error in the 32nd minute, while Nelson gave Arsenal the lead in he 44th minute via an Alisson error. Arsenal then put in a defensive masterclass in the 2nd half to hold on to the lead. Arsenal remain 9th and 3 points from 6th while Liverpool see their gap cut to 18 as they struggle post lockdown. 

Everton 1 vs. 1 Aston Villa

Konsa gave Villa a big lead in the 72nd minute but Walcott scored an equaliser in the 87th minute as Villa suffered a blow to their survival hopes. Everton remain 11th while Villa remain 19th 3 points from safety. 

Leicester 2 vs. 0 Sheffield United

Perez scored in the 1st half while Gray scored in the 2nd as Leicester got a massive win against Sheffield United. Leicester remain 4th on goal difference while Sheffield drop down to 8th and 2 points from 6th as their main goal remains Europa League football. 

Southampton 1 vs. 1 Brighton

Maupay gave Brighton the lead in the 17th minute but Ings equalised for Southampton in the 66th minute. Southampton remain 12th while Brighton remain 15th and should guarantee a place in the Premier League for next season. 

Crystal Palace 0 vs. 2 Man United

In a game where Palace probably deserved a point at least, VAR and United took advantage and the Red Devils ran away with 3 points. Rashford scored right before half time and Martial scored in the 2nd half to get the three points. A Palace penalty was denied by VAR while a Palace goal was ruled offside due to Ayew’s toe nail being past the line. Palace remain 14th while United remain 5th on goal difference. 

La Liga MW 37

Barcelona 1 vs. 2 Osasuna

Barcelona relinquished their title with a whimper as Osasuna won 3 points on the night.

Barcelona remain 2nd but officially lose the title as they fall 7 points behind champions Real Madrid with only one game left to play. Osasuna remain 11th. 

Mallorca 1 vs. 2 Granada

Hernandez gave Mallorca the lead in the 20th minute but Miguel equalised for Granada right before half time.

Benzema scored in either half while Iborra got a consolation goal for Villarreal as Real Madrid won 3 points and the title going 7 points clear of Barcelona with one game to play. This is Real Madrid’s first title since 2017 as they are clearly the best team in Spain. Villarreal remain 5th. 

Bilbao 0 vs. 2 Leganes

Guerreiro and Assale scored in the 2nd half as Leganes gained 3 massive points in their bid for survival. Bilbao drop down to 10th and miss out on any chance for Europe while Leganes are 18th just a point from safety.
