Premier League Match Reviews 7th May

The race for the Champions League places took a few major twists in an exciting weekend of Premier League action. Let’s take a look back at the games:


Leeds United 3:1 Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs’ Champions League hopes suffered a potentially terminal blow, as LEeds swept them aside at Elland Road.

Stuart Dallas put the hosts ahead from close range on 12 minutes, but Son Heung-Min equalized shortly after with a clinical strike. Top scorer Patrick Bamford restored Leeds’ advantage with a tap in on the stroke of half time.

The second half was less eventful, but Rodrigo sealed the win with six minutes remaining to complete a fine afternoon for the hosts.


Sheffield United 0:2 Crystal Palace

Palace secured their Premier League status with a routine win at relegated Sheffield United.

It took them just 66 seconds to hit the front, Christian Benteke’s strike deflected into the net giving Blades’ keeper Aaron Ramsdale no chance.
Chances were few and far between for the hosts, John Egan spurned their best opportunity by blazing over from six yards.

The Eagles sealed the win late on when Ebere Eze ran from the halfway line unopposed, before slotting the ball home from 12 yards.



Manchester City 1:2 Chelsea

Marcus Alonso’s injury time strike gave Chelsea a huge win and ensured City have to wait a little longer to seal their title triumph. 

It was going well for City when Raheem Sterling put them ahead on 44 minutes, but Sergio Aguero missed a penalty shortly after and it was downhill all the way from there. 

Hakim Ziyech struck from 18 yards to pull Chelsea level on 63 minutes and despite City having some strong penalty shouts late on, Alonso’s scuffed effort sealed a memorable win with virtually the last kick of the game.



Liverpool 2:0 Southampton

Thiago’s first Liverpool goal sealed a hard fought win for the Reds.

Liverpool took the lead when Mo Salah’s cross was headed home by Sadio Mane just after the half hour.

Southampton more than played their part in an entertaining game, but could’t find a way past Allison in the home goal.

Thiago confirmed the home win with a fine 20 yard strike in the closing moments.


Wolves 2:1 Brighton and Hove Albion

Lewis Dunk went from hero to villain as Wolves came from behind to beat the Seagulls.

Dunk headed the visitors ahead on 13 minutes, but was dismissed shortly after the break for a professional foul on Fabio Silva.

Adama Traore levelled for Wolves with 15 minutes remaining and as the hosts piled forward late on, Morgan Gibbs-White gave them all three points with his first ever Premier League goal.



Aston Villa 1:3 Manchester United

Manchester United came from behind to beat Villa and confirm their place in next season’s Champions League.

Bertrand Traore’s fine finish put Villa ahead in the first half, as United struggled to impose themselves on the game.

It was a different story in the second half. First, Bruno Fernandes levelled from the penalty spot on 52 minutes, then Mason Greenwood put the visitors ahead just four minutes later.

Edison Cavani’s late header sealed the win and moved United six points clear of third place Chelsea.


West Ham United 0:1 Everton

Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s first half strike was enough to severely dent West Ham’s European hopes and keep Everton’s alive.

Calvert-Lewin latched on to Ben Godfrey’s superb through ball and confidently fired home on 24 minutes.

The visitors were comfortable throughout the majority of the contest and West Ham struggled to break down their solid backline.



Arsenal 3:1 West Bromwich Albion

West Brom’s relegation to the Championship was confirmed, as Arsenal eased to a 3-1 win at the Emirates.

Emile Smith-Rowe’s smart finish put the Gunners ahead on 28 minutes, before Nikolas Pepe curled home a glorious second five minutes later.

Matheus Pereira gave the Baggies hope with a superb solo striker, but Willian’s fantastic injury time free kick sealed the visitor’s fate.

Fulham 0:2 Burnley

Two first half goals were enough to give Burnley all three points and confirm Fulham’s return to the Championship.

After a sustained spell of pressure, the opening arrived on 33 minutes when Matej Vydra set up Ashley Westwood to steer the ball home. Vydra provided the assist for the second as well, his header gave Chris Wood the chance to lash home a 20 yard strike on the stroke of half time.

Fulham piled on the pressure in the second half, but failed to  find a way back and their fate was sealed at the final whistle.
