Premier League Rundown 2/3/18

match 26

Burnley 1-1 Manchester City

Burnley did it, I mean it shouldn’t be much of a surprise if you’ve kept up with them this season, they took points off the league leaders with a tie at home. This will feel like a win for Burnley and keeping in character with how they’ve done against top opponents. The scoring was opened by an absolute stunner from Danilo, as everyone expected. and then the stout Burnley defense stood strong for the rest of the match. It paid off in the 82nd minute when Gudmundsson scored a late equalizer from a great pass. Burnley will next play against a Swansea team that has improved a huge deal since the beginning of the season. City will play Leicester, which has not been playing great especially considering the transfer rumors regarding Mahrez.

AFC Bournemouth 2-1 Stoke City

Bournemouth continues riding the wave after defeating Chelsea 3-0 away. The game was probably more even than Bournemouth would’ve liked, but 3 points is 3 points. So they’ll be happy to head over to Huddersfield and continue their winning ways.

Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 West Ham United

Huge win for Brighton to get them several places up the table and further away from the relegation zone. West Ham’s injuries have taken a toll and are not yet ready to dominate Europe as their stadium was intended for. Chicharito got a goal though, and the dream team of him and Moyes will hopefully see brighter days.

Leicester City 1-1 Swansea City

Leicester and Swansea duked out a pretty even match and got the draw they both deserved. Sure could Leicester learn how to finish a bit more? Yes of course, but the Swans were there at the right time when it mattered.

Manchester United 2-0 Huddersfield Town

United get a good win here, Sanchez got his first, Lukaku scored again, which every time he does everyone seems to get a bit more convinced he might be a good striker. His goal though was a great combination of positioning, finish, and Mata’s beautiful curling ball. Of course, United fans can’t get carried away, Huddersfield has been playing very poorly and are second last in the standings, their luck doesn’t look like it’ll improve any time soon either.

West Bromwich Albion 2-3 Southampton

In a pretty exciting game, by two not so exciting names, the Saints came out on top from this shootout. There’s not much more to be said apart from the fact that West Brom are dead last in the Premier League and desperately need points if they want to maintain their mid table reputation which seems like a dream at this point.

Arsenal 5-1 Everton

Ouch. Well some people thought that this would be a close game, but can you blame them? I mean honestly, Arsenal are the most unpredictable team when it comes to performance, one day they look like world beaters, the next they’ll draw 1-1 with West Brom. However, they’ve done pretty well in the transfer window; re-signing Ozil, picking up Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang, it looks like they’re clicking now. But you’ll need to pump the brakes on the Arsenal hype train, they play Spurs next and that’ll go one of two ways and I have a feeling AFTV will have a field day after that one.

That’s our Premier League rundown, we’ll be back tomorrow and Monday for the rest of week 26, thanks for reading!
