How will all this end?
It may only take four games until the end of the season, but the endless twists and turns of this Premier League campaign mean that all major questions remain unanswered. Victories from Manchester City and Liverpool mean the Premier League title race remains the same, Tottenham’s latest defeat at Brentford intensifies north London’s battle for fourth place, and Burnley’s potential victory over Wolverhampton for the season could herald Everton’s potential relegation failure. battle.
Even in a relatively low-goal week, the season’s most amazing stories remain just the same. Here are our five highlights from this latest round of matches.
Leeds United took to the field for the first time in more than two weeks during Monday’s game against Crystal Palace, and despite comfortably being the second-best result, the Whites managed to hold their own in a 0-0 draw, earning what could be a vital point in the game. Their battle against relegation.
As has been a lot this season, Ilan Meslier has been the champ here at Leeds. The French goalkeeper made seven saves throughout the match, taking the lead in what became a 1v1 battle between him and Wilfried Zaha, even making a stunning double save with his feet to deny the Crystal Palace striker.
Meslier has now made more saves than any other Premier League goalkeeper this season and you’d have been dreading where Leeds United would be without him.
Liverpool put up a very competitive bid for the title on Sunday after a tough Merseyside derby victory, despite the huge difference between the Reds and Everton.
For the 1,000th time in his Liverpool career, it was flying back Andrew Robertson who made the difference for Anfield. With almost no defense in front of Everton’s ill-conceived attacking line, Robertson patrolled the left side as usual, making the difference for his side when he bowed his head in a Mohamed Salah gesture in the 62nd minute.
Apart from his goal, the Scots captain also had 108 touches and scored a passing accuracy of 93%, in an efficient and usually dominant performance on Liverpool’s left flank.
Southampton have been in trouble lately, but despite their troubles, the Saints denied accusations that they were already vacationing with a lively display in Brighton, where they fought back from 2-0 down to earn an impressive point.
Southampton’s comeback was largely the work of one man and one man only – illustrious James Ward-Prowse. With his team struggling, Saints Captain brought them back into the game in signature style with a free kick straight across the post. Just a few minutes into the second half, Ward Prowse hit the target again, hitting the bottom corner of Oriol Romeu’s exit to Southampton level.
Free-kick goals are like clockwork for the Southampton midfielder at this point, and it’s certainly only a matter of time before he reaches and surpasses David Beckham’s Premier League record.
Manchester City may have spent the vast majority of the season without a recognizable striker, but in Saturday’s 5-1 defeat of Watford, Gabriel Jesus put in an impressive performance for the striker. The Brazilian netted early after finishing off Oleksandr Zinchenko’s dip, and shortly afterwards scored a header from Kevin De Bruyne’s perfect cross, before helping Rodri later in the first half.
He didn’t do there though – after the break, the Brazilian won and scored a penalty, then scored the fourth with another clinical finish from De Bruyne’s pass after a quick counterattack.
It was the first time all season that a player scored four times in a Premier League match, and with a performance like this, Manchester City may have other ideas about what they supposedly want to sell.
The recent sacking of Sean Dycke at Burnley is certainly one of the most shocking managerial losses of recent Premier League seasons. But even more surprising than that, who would have expected that Mike Jackson would have started in the role of interim manager?
Post Dyche Burnley put in another exceptional performance against Wolverhampton at the weekend, dominating his much higher-position visitors with an attacking momentum that certainly didn’t look like a team in a relegation battle. Clarett’s 1-0 win was well deserved.
From a bleak position after Daichi was sent off, Burnley are now sitting incredibly above the relegation zone. Can Jackson do the improbable and lead this team to survival?
