Weekend Football Review

The top four race becomes tighter!

Premier League MW 26

Man City 2 vs. 1 West Ham

Dias scored in the 30th minute to give City the lead but Antonio equalised in the 43rd minute for West Ham. Stones grabbed the winner in the 68th minute to seal the win for City. West Ham really took it to the leaders and City had to work hard to get the win but still managed to rest some key players. City go 12 points clear at the top of the table while West Ham remain 4th in the table a point above 5th now. 

West Brom 1 vs. 0 Brighton

Bartley scored in the 11th minute to give West Brom the lead and eventually the win. It was VAR though that took the headlines in this game as Brighton scored a goal only for it to be given then disallowed due to the referee blowing his whistle for some odd reason. West Brom get a lucky win and remain 19th in the table 9 points from safety. Brighton remain 16th and 3 points above the relegation zone. 

Leeds 0 vs. 1 Aston Villa

El Ghazi scored in the 5th minute and Villa held on for the win as they got 3 massive points. Leeds drop into 11th with the loss while Villa drop into 9th on goal difference. Villa still have two games in hand though. 

Newcastle 1 vs. 1 Wolverhampton

Lascelles scored in the 52nd minute and Neves equalised for Wolves in the 73rd minute as both teams settled for a draw. Newcastle remain 17th and 3 points above the relegation zone while Wolves remain 12th in the table.

Crystal Palace 0 vs. 0 Fulham

A London derby that saw no goals as neither team could break the other down. Palace remain 13th in the table while Fulham remain 18th.

Leicester 1 vs. 3 Arsenal

Tielemans scored in the 6th minute and it looked like it would be a routine win for the Foxes. Arsenal had other ideas though and Luiz equalised for them in the 39th minute. Willian was having a great game and Lacazette scored a penalty right before half time to give Arsenal the lead. Pepe then made it 3 in the 52nd minute and sealed the win for the Gunners. Leicester remain 3rd 5 points from 5th while Arsenal move into 10th with the win.

 Tottenham 4 vs. 0 Burnley

Bale, Kane, and Moura scored in the 1st half to give Tottenham a comfortable lead. Bale then got another in the 55th minute to clear any doubts. Tottenham move into 8th on goal difference while Burnley remain 15th in the table and finally lose a game. 

Sheffield United 0 vs. 2 Liverpool

After Sheffield United stood strong for 45 minutes Liverpool edge a win in the 2nd half. Jones scored in the 48th minute and Bryan scored an own goal in the 65th minute to seal a win for Liverpool. Sheffield United remain bottom of the table and 15 points from safety while Liverpool finally manage to win a game and remain 6th a point behind Chelsea. 

Everton 1 vs. 0 Southampton

Richarlison scored in the 9th minute and that was enough for Everton as they held on for the win. Everton remain 7th a point behind 5th and 2 points from top four. A great opportunity for Ancelotti now with Chelsea and Liverpool playing each other in the next game.
