One step. We may not quite know how the Premier League season will turn out, as we said several weeks ago, but Matchweek 36 has given us some of the clearest indications yet on the end results. This is largely due to Liverpool’s highly anticipated confrontation with Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield, where the 1-1 draw damaged the ambitions of both teams, and Liverpool are now three points behind the lead and Tottenham are fourth with four points.
At the end of the Premier League table, Everton capitalized on the shortcomings of their relegation rivals Burnley and Leeds United by securing a vital 2-1 win over Leicester City, a result that puts the Toffees above both teams mentioned above. game in hand.
But perhaps the biggest talking point came at the weekend when Brighton and Hove Albion, already enjoying their best season in the Premier League, broke up Manchester United 4-0, adding to the gloom at the helm of a relentlessly miserable campaign with the Red Devils.
10 games, 33 goals. Read on for the latest five-stars from this week’s Premier League.
We all wondered if Everton’s stunning victory over Chelsea last week would prove to be a turning point in the relegation battle or just a flash in the pan, a question Tovez answered emphatically with his 2-1 win over Leicester to secure his first away game. Victory since August.
Much like last week, it was Pickford who came back to save Everton and bring them over the finish line. Although he was unable to secure successive clean sheets after a foul from the defenders in front of him, the England goalkeeper made seven saves, including a superb reaction from both Nampalys Mendy and Harvey Barnes.
A match-winning show from Pickford, no less.
Brentford made a stellar start to the Premier League again on Saturday afternoon, when bees stung Southampton with a thumping 3-0 win to go up to 43 points.
Central defender Christopher Agger was one of the many who stood out on the host side with an impressive performance. The Norwegian defended aggressively against the Saints, making four interceptions, four passes, and winning all of his duels. Ager topped his superb winning goal, displaying the agility of a striker’s heart before finishing clinically to score his first goal for the club.
A great personal moment in the defender’s steady debut season in West London.
West Ham’s Europa League dream may have come to a disappointing end against Eintracht Frankfurt in midweek, but Hammers managed to shake off their frustration over already relegated Norwich City on Sunday, with a 4-0 victory at Carrow Road.
Not surprisingly, it was Jarrod Bowen who spearheaded the victory. The architect of much of West Ham’s attacking power this season, Bowen has been here again with a hat-trick of assists. The midfielder got off to a quick start with a long shot to Said Benrahma, whose shot was too hot for Tim Kroll to handle and gave the Hammers the lead. Bowen then sent in a Mikhail Antonio through pass that was cleared by a rebound from Krul, and secured a third assist before the break with another big kick to Penrahma.
What a season it has been for Bowen, who will definitely be in contention for a place on this year’s next PFA Team.
A strong few weeks for Brighton and Hove Albion reached their climax on Saturday night, when the second half saw a swift attack by the Seagulls crush Manchester United 4-0.
The hosts have previously been quite shy of goals at AMEX this season and their projected goals (xG) clash is often highlighted, but against United it was striker Leandro Trossard who inspired a ruthless performance. The Belgian’s home cut was flatly shattered by Marc Cucurella early in the second half, and shortly thereafter was brilliantly passed inside by Pascal Gross.
Just minutes later, Trossard scored the goal his performance deserved, as Diogo Dalot blocked the goal line to score his team’s fourth goal.
Incredibly, the three goal contributions came within just over ten minutes, propelling Brighton towards what should be their greatest Premier League victory.
We’ve talked about the clinical aptitude of some Brighton players, but how about that for the elaborate tactics lessons from Graham Potter in the dugout?
Undoubtedly United were a wounded animal going into this game, but regardless Potter leads his side to a truly amazing victory, playing with a lot of vitality and attacking intensity that’s been there all season but this time with the finish of the match he-she. The fact that Brighton could have scored more goals so easily shows how much control they had in this match from start to finish.
With 47 points now to their name, you wouldn’t bet Potter leading them into a half-century for the first time.
