Not a great weekend for the times.
Premier League MW 21

Newcastle returned to winning ways as Callum Wilson scored a double in the 2nd half to get a massive win for the Magpies. Everton drop down to 8th with the loss with 2 games in hand while Newcastle go up to 15th with the win and bring some respite for Steve Bruce.
Crystal Palace 1 vs. 0 Wolverhampton
Eze scored in the 60th minute as Palace won the duel between two struggling teams. Palace move into 13th with the win while Wolves continue their poor run of form and drop into 14th. Wolves and Nuno need something to go for them in the coming weeks.
Man City 1 vs. 0 Sheffield United
Jesus scored in the 9th minute for City and it looked like there would be plenty more but Sheffield United defended well and limited City to the single goal. The goal was enough for 3 points though as City remain top and 3 points above 2nd now. Sheffield United remain bottom of the table and now 13 points from safety.
West Brom 2 vs. 2 Fulham
Reid scored in the 10th minute to give Fulham the lead but Bartley equalised in the 47th minute to set up an interesting 2nd half. Pereira then got West Brom the lead in the 66th minute but Fulham equalised in the 76th minute via Cavaleiro. The two teams shared the points as the two teams remain 19th and 18th respectively with a 7 point gap between the relegation zone and safety.
Arsenal 0 vs. 0 Man United
A game devoid of any excitement as both teams seemed to decide to settle for a draw. Arsenal actually had a go in the 2nd half but United seemed to be happy to get a point. Arsenal drop into 10th with the point while United remain 2nd 3 points from the top.
Southampton 0 vs. 1 Aston Villa
Southampton were denied a clear penalty by VAR after Cash handled the ball in the box while Barkley scored the only goal of the game in the 41st minute as Villa took 3 points. Southampton remain 11th in the table while Villa move into 9th in the table.
Leicester 1 vs. 3 Leeds
Barnes scored in the 13th minute to give Liecester the lead and it looked like this would be another win for the home side in their march to the top but Leeds had other plans. Dallas equalised 2 minutes later for Leeds while Bamford scored an absolute beauty in the 70th minute to put Leeds ahead. Harrison then sealed the deal in the 84th minute to give Bielsa 3 points. Leicester drop into 4th with the loss while Leeds remain 12th but stay within touching distance of the top 10.
West Ham 1 vs. 3 Liverpool
The first half had West Ham defending with their lives as Liverpool huffed and puffed but the Hammers held on. The 2nd half saw Liverpool bring a bulldozer in Mo Salah though as the Egyptian scored 2 while Wijnaldum scored a 3rd to give Liverpool a comfortable advantage. Dawson scored in the 87th minute but it was a consolation goal. West Ham remain 5th with the loss while Liverpool move into 3rd a point behind United, and end a dismal run of form in the league.
Brighton 1 vs. 0 Tottenham
Trossard scored in the 17th minute and the Seagulls actually dominated the game as Potter and his side got a big win against Mourinho and Spurs. No Kane no party for Spurs as they remain 6th but suffer their 2nd defeat in a row. Brighton remain 17th but now 7 points clear of the relegation zone.
La Liga MW 21
Sevilla beat Eibar 0-2, Real Madrid lost to Levante 1-2, Villarreal drew with Real Sociedad 1-1, Atletico beat Cadiz 2-4, and Messi owned club Barcelona beat Bilbao 2-1.

Villarreal and Real Sociedad sit 5th and 6th. It’s really a race for top four at the moment with Atletico well and truly clear of the rest.
Serie A MW 20

Bundesliga MW 19
