Week 25

Wolves v Liverpool

Liverpool and Wolves go in with nothing really to play for and it made for an entertaining game, Lemar having a go down the left was proving a handful for the newly recalled Vrsaljko and he was rewarded in the 17th minute, he drove at the fullback and played a neat one two with Milinkovic, Lemar drove into the box and drilled it home under Leno, the game went back and forth and Wolves equalised in the 33rd minute when Eriksen dinked the ball over the CB's and Aubameyanf was there to smash it home. Second half was much alike, both going for it and when Umtiti fouled Aubameyang just outside the box Eriksen steped up and put one into the postage stamp, subs were made and confusion in the Wolves back line allowed Abraham to knock it down for the in coming Lemar who shot from just outside the area to make it 2-2, the game ended and both will be happy with a draw

Wolves 2 - 2 Liverpool

Spurs v Arsenal

Arsenal are safe but Spurs still could catch Portsmouth nd/or Newcastle so have gone very attack minded, and proved to be a correct decision as they went ahead early through the two man strike force linking well with Icardi finishing it off, they double their lead again with the two linking well but tables were turned and it was Icardi laying it off for Batshuayi to finish off. Arsenal managed to get a couple of shots away but came to nothing. Second have and Malcom and Costa came into it, really having a go at Spurs, a really silly challenge by Shaw however saw the left back red carded in 60 mins. This spurred Arsenal on and Malcom was doing well and the midfield had a bit more space, this proved costly for Spurs as Malcom sprinted passed Hector and cut it back for Goretzka coming in, he then split the defence open and Cavani was on hand to knock it in, Spurs were really on the back foot as the game changed and it was arsenal putting on the pressure and the subs coming on really helped, as Cesc played in Callejon who drilled it in low and Cavani stole a march on van Dijk and smashed it into the top corner..With not long left Spurs rallied and went for it Vidal bursting in and driving passed Carvalho, he drove an unstoppable shot and thus put the home side 3-2 up on 85, From Kick off however, cesc picked the ball up and played a hopeful ball forward, Cavani with a sublime touch went round Boateng, and with Ter Stegen rushing out he dinked it over him and into the back of the net, what a game, what a finish from two very good sides, but Spurs will be dejected. A good point for Arsenal but Spurs look like they have blown a chance to catch the two above them

Spurs 3 - 3 Arsenal

Stoke v Hull City

When your relegated and nothing has gone right for you all season then you just want to forget about it, on the other hand Hull are fighting for there lives and there back 4/5 were absolutely outstanding today, giving the Stoke forwards nothing, however at the other end they weren't creating an awful lot as Stoke too were pretty solid, unfortunately for Hull the game seemed to go passed very quickly and there chances of three points were minimal, they earned a point from this game and with one game to go is it enough?

Stoke 0 - 0 Hull City
MOTM - Baumgartl

Everton v Portsmouth

Another team fighting for the survival but couldn't get it much tougher today, Everton started brightly but the two chances they had early on were wasted, which was to prove costly as Portsmouth went ahead near half time trough Lewandowski after nice play from midfield. Everton were showing some wonderful movement but just couldn't break the Pompey defence down, until they got a corner and lumped the big boys up, Kovacic sent a delightful cross in and Vertongen was there to power home with his head. Pompey gained back control and made subs at a vital time, Mertens latching onto a Dembele through ball, he knocked it rounf the keeper and slotted home what was to be the winner and leaves Everton in a lot of trouble

Everton 1 - 2 Portsmouth
Vertonghen(Kovacic, 54)

MOTM - Verratti

Birmingham v Aton Villa

Both teams safe and nothing really to play for apart from pride and to be the second best in the midlands, Villa approached this game very cautiously with a one man midfield in Neves and 5 attackers and they got the early goal through Higuain after a sweet cross ball from Griezmann, but then Birmingham took over, Matic and Brozovic controlling the centre of the pitch and creating chances for the forwards to go for, Vardy got the first when his pace got him beyond the defenders then Alli diving just outside the box gave them a chance from a freekick, Alonso fired it in and Matic headed home, a few more chances came and went but this really felt like Tino and Villa were wanting away to the Canaria islands for a few weeks off...

Birmignham 2 - 1 Aston Villa

Brighton 1-2 Chelsea
Ocampos (Dalbert) 16; Aguero (Tolisso) 34, Mbappe (Aguero) 52
MOTM: Aguero

Brighton fought hard and took an early lead as some good work down the left from Dalbert created space on the inside left of the area for Ocampos to drill a shot across Butland and into the far corner.

Chelsea were struggling a little to get into the game with little to play for, but the equaliser came when Tolisso was allowed time to drive forward, he slipped a pass through to Aguero who made no mistake, slotting underneath the oncoming Patricio.

Chelsea were improved second half, and Aguero was played through on goal again, he unselfishly squared the ball to Mbappe who tapped home, and Chelsea led.

Chelsea then gave a masterclass in closing a game out, as they frustrated Brighton with their possession and the tactical change to a more defensive side. Brighton made changes with Luan and Muriel coming on but they were unable to force an equaliser, and Brighton now go into the final game of the season with their fate out of their own hands.


Newcastle 2-1 Leicester
Salah (Suarez) 37, Salah (Pjanic) 45; Asensio (James) 75
MOTM: Salah

A bit of an upset as Leicester fail to close out an invincible season or wrap up the title as they came up against a rampant Newcastle attack today. The opener came after good hold up play from Suarez, he laid the ball off to Salah who drilled it into the bottom corner from 20 yards.

Newcastle didn't sit back to their credit, and the second goal came on the stroke of half time, as Pjanic drifted out to the left, and his right footed inswinger was poked home by Salah getting in ahead of Azpilicueta from 8 yards.

Leicester eventually made the changes and they worked to an extent, James getting on the ball and finding Asensio free on the right hand edge of the area, Asensio firing home past Alisson. Leicester pushed to preserve their undefeated record but Newcastle shut up shop with Keita adding to the midfield, and were able to see out a big win in their own battle for 3rd.
