Premier League MW 21

Arsenal 1 vs. 2 Man City

Arsenal were brilliant in the 1st half against Man City but only took the lead in the 31st minute thanks to Saka. Mahrez equalised in the 2nd half thanks to a soft penalty and Gabriel was sent off for Arsenal in the 59th minute. Odegaard was also denied a penalty in the 1st half. It looked like the game was heading for a draw but Rodri scored the winner in the 93rd minute to seal yet another win for Man City. Arsenal remain 4th in the table now only a point above 5th but with a game in hand. City sit 10 points clear at the top of the table and are looking set for another title. 

Watford 0 vs. 1 Tottenham

Another game with a late winner as Watford looked like they were heading for a massive point but Sanchez scored a header in the 96th minute to give Spurs the 3 points. Watford remain 17th in the table 2 points above the relegation zone while Tottenham move into 6th in the table with three games in hand and 2 points behind Arsenal. Conte has got Spurs chugging along.

Crystal Palace 2 vs. 3 West Ham

Antonio scored in the 22nd minute to give West Ham the lead. Lanzini scored 3 minutes later to make it 2 for the Hammers while he scored a penalty before half time to make it 0-3. Palace got two goals in the final 10 minutes thanks to Edouard and Olise to give the Eagles some hope but West Ham held on for the win. Palace played well but the first half was poor and that cost them. Palace remain 11th in the table while West Ham remain 5th in the table with a game in hand and behind Arsenal by a point.

Brentford 2 vs. 1 Aston Villa

Ings scored in the 16th minute to give Villa the lead but Wissa equalised for Brentford in the 42nd minute. Roerslev got the winner for Brentford in the 83rd minute. Brentford move up to 12th with the win while Villa drop down to 13th with the loss with Gerrard having some work to do. 

Leeds 3 vs. 1 Burnley

Harrison scored in the 39th minute to give Leeds the lead, but Cornet equalised for Burnley in the 54th minute. Dallas regained the lead for Leeds in the 77th minute and Dan James sealed the win for Leeds in the 92nd minute. Leeds remain 16th in the table but 8 points clear of the relegation zone now while Burnley remain 18th with four games in hand and 2 points from safety. 

Everton 2 vs. 3 Brighton

Mac Allister scored for Brighton in the 3rd minute and Burn made it two for Brighton in the 21st minute. Gordon got one back for Everton in the 53rd minute but Mac Allister got a third for Brighton in the 71st minute. Gordon got one back for Everton in the 76th minute but Brighton had done enough for three points. Everton remain 15th but it looks like the club are behind Benitez while Brighton move up to 9th in the table with 2 games in hand. 

Man United 0 vs. 1 Wolverhampton

United were 2nd best for the entire game and De Gea saved them once again for much of the 90 minutes. Wolves kept trying to get the goal and Moutinho finally managed to get the lead in the 82nd minute. Wolves finally get a big win at Old Trafford and one that deserves their recent form while United have no bounce under Rangnick. United drop down to 7th in the table while Wolves remain 8th 3 points behind United with both teams having 2 games in hand.

La Liga MW 19

Espanyol beat Valencia 1-2, Getafe beat Real Madrid 1-0, Atletico beat Vallecano 2-0, Sociedad drew with Alaves 1-1, Barcelona beat Mallorca 0-1, Villarreal beat Levante 5-0, and Sevilla beat Cadiz 0-1. Real Madrid drop points but remain 5 points clear at the top of the table. Sevilla, Real Betis, and Atletico make up the top four. Barcelona remain 5th in the table while Real Sociedad sit 7th, Valencia sit 9th and Villarreal sit 8th in the table. Advantage still Real Madrid but the others gain ground and some have games in hand. An interesting race ahead.
