Top 5 Stories from Premier League Matchweek 29
Most of the stories have us looking at the Top 6, specifically the turmoil in London. Let’s go over the previous action from the Premier League.
1. Man City best Arsenal again in Carabao Cup rematch
Over a week ago, Manchester City and Arsenal met in the Carabao Cup final. City easily beat Arsenal 3-0 in what was an embarrassing defeat for the Gunners. On Thursday, the same result happened. Another 3-0 defeat put Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger deeper into trouble with his job security. Arsenal remain 6th and Manchester City remain atop the table.
2. Brighton beat Arsenal 2-1
How could it get any worse for Arsenal? In what should’ve been a rebound game, turned into post fan riot. Social media was buzzing with angry Arsenal fans who’re finally showing that they don’t want Arsene Wenger in the team any longer. Cries for his firing are becoming louder after three straight defeats. Brighton played defensive and played the counter attack best in this game and put on one of the best victories of the season. The victory brought them to 10th in the table.
3. Man United get stoppage time winner against Crystal Palace
It’s amazing how United were down 2-0 in this game early in the second half. Chris Smalling scored in the 55th and Romelu Lukaku scored in the 76th to at least help United carve a point from this ugly game. But into stoppage time, it was Nemanja Matic scoring his first goal for United to give the Red Devils the much-needed win to keep a hold of the second place spot. Crystal Palace drop into the relegation zone in 18th.
4. Man City beat Chelsea 1-0
It was an awkward defeat for Chelsea. Manager Antonio Conte is rumored to be sacked at the end of this season due to Chelsea’s lackluster performance overall as defending champions. The Blues decided to play a completely defensive game only having one shot on goal. City simply played their game and got a one goal victory without much effort. City remain on top and Chelsea remain in 5th.
5. Swansea beat West Ham 4-1
Swansea dominated throughout the entire game. Getting their first goal in the 8th minute, Liberty Stadium was rocking all the way into the second half with goal after goal piled onto the Hammers. Swansea rose to 13th in the table while West Ham drop to 14th.
Matchweek 30 begins this weekend.
