Premier League Match Reviews 24th April
Goals were at a premium in the latest round of Premier League games, but there were still some significant moves at both ends of the table. Let’s take a look back at the games:
Arsenal 0:1 Everton
A monumental error from Arsenal’s Bernd Leno handed Everton all three points in a drab encounter at the Emirates.
The German keeper failed to deal with a soft ball into the area from Richarlison and somehow allowed the ball to deflect off him into the goal.
Gylfi Sigurdsson hit the bar for Everton in the first half, whilst Arsenal had a penalty overturned following a VAR review.
Liverpool 1:1 Newcastle United
Newcastle took a huge step towards Premier League survival with a deserved point at Anfield.
Mo Salah put the hosts in front after just three minutes, but despite a host of excellent chances they failed to add to their lead.
Newcastle grew into the game and piled on the pressure late on. Eventually, the goal arrived in the 95th minute when Joe Willock drilled home a low shot past Alisson.
West Ham United 0:1 Chelsea
Timo Werner ended his goal drought to give Chelsea a huge win in the race for a Champions League place.
Werner finished off a fine Chelsea move with a close-range strike on 43 minutes. It was a deserved win for the visitors, who controlled large parts of the game and were rarely threatened.
West Ham had Fabien Balbuena sent off for an innocuous looking challenge late on.
Sheffield United 1:0 Brighton and Hove Albion
Relegated Sheffield United claimed a rare three points, thanks to David McGoldrick’s early strike against Brighton.
Poor defending from the visitors allowed McGoldrick to fire him the only goal, via a deflection from Pascal Gross.
The Seagulls created a host of chances, but typically of their season, they were wasteful in front of goal.
Wolverhampton Wanderers 0:4 Burnley
Chris Wood became the first man in 23 years to score a first half hat-trick away from home in the Premier League, as Burnely demolished Wolves.
Wood’s first was a powerful angled strike on 15 minutes, whilst his second was a simple tap in after poor Wolves defending allowed Dwight McNeill to set up Wood.
More slack defending gave Wood a free header from a corner on the stroke of half time, as Burnley effectively sealed the three points. Ashley Westwood completed the scoring in the second half, assisted by Wood, as the Clarets recorded their biggest top flight away win for 55 years.
Leeds United 0:0 Manchester United
Manchester United’s slim title hopes effectively ended with a dull draw at Elland Road.
Leeds were solid throughout the game and were rarely troubled by the visitor’s limp attack.
In contrast to the eight goal thriller at Old Trafford earlier in the season, this was a soulless and drab game in which both sides seemed content with a point.
United are now ten points behind Manchester City with just five games remaining.
Aston Villa 2:2 West Bromwich Albion
A last gasp Keinan Davis goal rescued a point for Villa and effectively consigned West Brom to relegation.
Both sides scored early penalties, through Anwar El-Ghazi and Matteus Perreira, before terrible Villa defending allowed Mbaye Diagne to put the Baggies ahead via a big deflection from Tyrone Mings.
In a thrilling game, both teams struck the woodwork and were denied by excellent goalkeeping, but a defensive mix up in injury time allowed Davis to sneak in for the equalizer and break West Brom hearts.
Leicester City 2:1 Crystal Palace
Two second half goals gave Leicester a come-from-behind win to cement their place in the top four.
Wilfried Zaha put the visitors ahead on the counter-attack in the first half. It was Zaha’s fourth goal in four appearances at the King Power.
Leicester drew level shortly after the break. Timothy Castagne firing home for his first Premier League goal.
The winner arrived on 79 minutes, in-form Kelechi Iheanacho expertly controlled a pass, cut inside and fired an unstoppable shot into the net.
