Leicester v Hull

Hull burst out the traps and had an early opportunity when Pjaca set up Zlatan but the big front man's header just went over, they had another chance in 17 mins with the same two combined, this time however, Zlatan made no mistake and powered his header into the back of the net, Hull contined the early pressure with Dahoud doing very well in midfield, but couldn't extend their lead. You need to take your chances against a quality outfit like Leicester as they eventually settled and the front four started to shine, Aseniso at times too much for Geis and Hull were pegged back, they scored through Ronaldo in 36 minus after good work from Asensio and Hazard, the former setting up the goal. Hull soaked up the pressure and stopped Leicester extending there lead, at least until half time.
The second half started brightly for the away side and they were closie to going in front again but this time, Schmeicel spreading himself to stop Zlatans effort. The young team began to tire and Leicester began to dominate, Asensio instrumental again in the second goal as he teed up Hazard for him to blast in from the left on 60 mins Hull did well tho and in the final 10 they had a go but unfortunately today they were up against a real top side

Leicester 2 - 1 Hull
Ronaldo(Asensio,36), Hazard(Asensio,60)

Aston Villa v Portsmouth

A great game to look forward too with two teams vying for the title, with similar styles it was going to be close and it was, chances for both sides, but keeprs in good form, last ditch tackling, crunching tackles made it very entertaining for the sell out crowd, neither team giving an inch in the first half and it remained goal less.

Second half much alike, end to end stuff but it was Villa that broke the deadlock in 50 mins, Marchisio playing a great ball in to Cavani who did the rest to put Villa 1 -0 up, this didn't seem to faze Portsmouth as they stuck to there task and pressured the home side and really pegged them back, eventually they were rewarded when Alexis drove down into space on the left and crossed in for Lewandowski to chest and volley home a great goal, subs were introduced and the game lost its tempo a tad, but still end to end but neither team could find a winner and Portsmouth went home with a point

Aston Villa 1 - 1 Portsmouth

Wolves v Arsenal

This really was a game of two halves, Arsenal firing on all cylinders in the first and were 2-0 before you knew it, Berardi and Aubameyang with two quick goals in 13 and 18 minutes, two crackers athat really put Wolvs under immense pressure, they looked like they were staring into headlights and just couldn't compete, and were lucky to be only 2-0 at half time

Whatever Marky said tho, it was like chalk and cheese, they started very quickly and pegged Arsenal back, who looked a bit shell shocked after being on easy street in the first 45, Higuain latched on to a through ball from Silva and reduced the deficit to 1, with Wolves pushing forward they were leaving big holes at the back, Arsenal just couldn't capitalise, Subs made this drove Wolves on as they went for it and there ambitious system paid off as Sanches created a hole for Son to drive into, he played it across for Higuain who was left with a tap in at the back post to make it 2 each.

This really was a game of two halves but a point each probably deserved

Wolves 2 - 2 Arsenal
Berardi(Neves,13) Aubameyang(Mboula,18)

MOTM - Ter Stegen kept the score down in the first half to keep them in the game

Liverpool 2-3 Chelsea
Dybala (Tolisso), Belotti (Dybala) ; Neymar (Griezmann), Aguero (Sandro), Neymar (Sandro)

Goals galore despite a rather defensive setup from Liverpool. The home side's pressing setup was rather hectic at times, as Busquets and Khedira were calm in possession as ever, they were key for getting the quality of Chelsea's attack to get at Liverpool's defence. On the break the home side though got the best out of their cms and strikers.

Newcastle 1-0 Spurs
Suarez (Mane)

An open game but one without many clear cut chances as both sides had a chance of getting something from the game. A bit of world class play at the back and up top made the difference in the end, as the home side were strong defensively and Suarez got the winning goal.
