Premier League Review – Gameweek 26

Premier League Gameweek 26 

As the Premier League went through gameweek 26 we saw a few flashes of life from the teams ‘out of form.’

Manchester City vs West Ham

City have now extended their unbeaten streak in the Premier League to 18 games now after a shaky 2-1 win against an ‘in form’ West Ham, City started off well with a nice header from defender Ruben Dias until West Ham equalised with a Michail Antonio goal, but the star of the show must’ve went to John Stones who scored a winning goal in order to get city the three points. City now go 12 points clear of 2nd place Manchester United.

Manchester United vs Chelsea 

Manchester United had the best chances in this rivalry but it still ended in a boring 0-0 draw. But one headline that came from this game was a penalty appeal that was shut down by referee: Andre Marriner. It was a very hard call to make where either way it went it would've been reasonable. 

Arsenal vs Leicester

Arsenal beat Leicester in an entertaining match that ended 3-1. Leicester had taken an early lead through a bullet of a shot from midfielder: Youri Tielemans, but sadly that was all that was good about their game for Leicester, Arsenal had equalised from a diving header from David Luiz. They did not stop there they had gone for the three points and were able to scavenge themselves a penalty in the 45th minute from a ball hitting the hand of Wilfried Ndidi. It was converted by striker Alexandre Lacazette and to top it off, Nicholas Pepe scored after a quick counter-attack 

Liverpool vs Sheffield United 

Liverpool may be beginning their revival back into the title race after an impressive 2-0 victory over Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. Which saw Liverpool dominate most of the chances in this match. It was a great game and most importantly it could be the start of the race for Liverpool again. 

Everton vs Southampton 

Southampton seem to extend their poor streak after a woeful loss to Everton ending 1-0. The goal came from Brazilian forward Richarlison. The southern side are due to win a game since their last win was against Liverpool dating back to the 4th January.

Tottenham vs Burnley 

Burnley seemed to not have the cure for Tottenham’s attack, losing by 4-0. Spurs seemed to run riot across Burnley’s defence straight from the off. Two quality goals came from Bale one of which started the game and the other sealed it, we also saw Harry Kane and Lucas Moura score great goals which let Tottenham see off Burnley

Aston Villa vs Leeds United

Like the Everton game, there was an early goal which was enough to scrape a win, but this time it was the Aston Villa side winning 1-0 from an Anwar El Ghazi strike. It did at times seem that Leeds could get themselves back in the game but they couldn’t seem to finish off any of their 13 shots on goal. 

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Newcastle United 

It was a very tight game with not much between them, which is probably the reason why they drew 1-1. Although they both made many chances they just were not able to convert up front, it may seem that Wolves are taking major hits from Raul Jimenez’ injury. Newcastle were the first team to score but it didn’t take too long for Ruben Neves to equalise for The Wanderers with a great header. 

Crystal Palace vs Fulham 

It seemed as though it would go Fulham's way right from the start, but sadly it did not. Fulham’s survival hopes were broken after a 0-0 draw that should've been a win after dominating the Palace side like that. Fulham were very unlucky having 16 shots on goal whereas Crystal Palace only had three  

Brighton & Hove Albion vs West Bromwich Albion 

Unlike the other teams in the relegation zone, West Brom were able to get themselves a win against a side that seemed as if they should’ve won. They were able to get the three points through an early goal from Kyle Bartley. But that was not all that happened in this game. Brighton had two penalties that they were unable to convert and they also had an unusual case where the referee had blown the whistle for them to take their free kick and so they did, up stepped Lewis Dunk who was able to strike into the top right corner, but as the ball flew in the air the referee, Lee Mason, blew his whistle again as he spotted that Sam Johnstone was still setting up his wall which then led to him disallowing the goal. Unlucky? I don't think so. 

Finishing Facts

After a good week of football we are set to see who has their eyes on the prize and who must settle for fifth and sixth with just 12 games to go.
