Top 5 Stories from Premier League Matchweek 30
Only 8 games to go in the Premier League season, so while the predictions keep rolling in, let’s go over the top stories from the previous weekend’s action.
1. Man United beat Liverpool 2-1
With both teams coming off wins, it was one of the biggest matches of the second half of the season. With Top 4 implications on the line, it was a key win for Manchester United to stay well away from the Merseyside team. United’s Marcus Rashford scored a brace for what was one of his most memorable and efficient performances of the season and his career. Liverpool’s only goal came from an own goal of United defender Eric Bailly. United stay in 2nd and Liverpool drop to 4th.
2. Harry Kane injured in 4-1 win over Bournemouth
The Spurs’ Top 4 and Champions League campaign took a hit when star played Harry Kane went down with a ligament injury. He’s expected to return in one month. The Spurs remained persistent keeping the pace lost with Kane and pouring on every goal they could to the end of the game. Spurs rise to 3rd in the table while Bournemouth remain 12th.
3. Arsenal rebound with 3-0 victory over Watford
Despite the latest form from the Gunners, Arsenal still proved they can put up quality wins. However, the crowd at the home Emirates Stadium was sparse based on what the arena can hold. Those who did watch the game saw a great performance from all areas of Arsenal’s game. The win still keeps Arsenal in 6th position but Watford dropped to 10th.
4. Leicester further sink West Brom
It all seemed like West Brom weren’t going to go out without a fight when striker Salomon Rondon scored early in the 8th minute. But after the celebration, Leicester City poured it on with four goals as their answer all the way to the end of the game with a stoppage time goal. West Brom remain bottom of the table, and Leicester remain 8th.
5. Chelsea snag 2-1 win over Crystal Palace
In what’s been a lackluster second half of the season at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea continue to surprise. Crystal Palace are fighting off relegation in a big way, taking teams like Manchester United to the brink to try to beat them, despite nothing coming from the matches, Palace are relentless. Chelsea took on Palace and didn’t falter despite the recent bad form. Chelsea remain 5th and Crystal Palace remain 18th.
Matchweek 31 begins this weekend.
