Premier League Review
Premier League Matchday in Review
This week in the English Premier League there were a number of important games involving teams at opposite ends of the table. Here’s how the matchups played out:
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 4 – 0 WATFORD
MANCHESTER CITY 3 – 1 HULL CITY
MIDDLESBROUGH 0 – 0 BURNLEY
STOKE CITY 1 – 2 LIVERPOOL
WEST BROMWICH ALBION 0 – 1 SOUTHAMPTON
WEST HAM UNITED 1 – 0 SWANSEA CITY
AFC BOURNEMOUTH 1 – 3 CHELSEA
SUNDERLAND 0 – 3 MANCHESTER UNITED
EVERTON 4 – 2 LEICESTER CITY
CRYSTAL PALACE 3 – 0 ARSENAL
Following some concern over an injury to Harry Kane, Tottenham are right back on track and look to be the team, if any, to challenge Chelsea for the title. Dele Alli and Heung-min Son continue in excellent form, compiling 27 goals between them.
Manchester City get a victory over Hull City which holds their four point lead over Manchester United in fourth place, guaranteeing a Champions League spot for next season. Sergio Aguero with a goal and Raheem Sterling records his seventh assist of the season.
After looking very shaky early on in the match, Liverpool ultimately pulled themselves back via Brazilian duo Coutinho and Roberto Firmino. The Reds will need them to hold onto this form with Sadio Mané sidelined with injury for the next two months.
Chelsea recover after dropping points to Crystal Palace and the title seems all but theirs as key players continue to impress.
Romelu Lukaku is an unstoppable force and Everton are scoring goals again this season. They’ve had a number of players impress in different areas and they’ve looked confident at home in Goodison Park.
Arsenal disappoint yet again as the nightmare continues on. The fan base is divided and the future of the club is hazy as uncertainty surrounds Arsène Wenger, Alexis Sánchez, and Mesut Özil.
This week we also have UEFA Champions League quarterfinals on Tuesday and Wednesday. Juventus hosts Barcelona and Dortmund squares off against Monaco tomorrow at 2:45 EST.
