Manchester City are Premier League Champions. A classy win over Spurs was enough to give Pep Guardiola’s team the title, thanks to West Brom pulling off a shock win at Old Trafford.
Football betting fans and experts have known for a while that it’s City’s season, but having lost three football games on the run, the Sky Blues’ celebrations have been delayed; but only for a week because West Brom defied the betting odds, and all conventional wisdom, to beat Manchester United.
Manchester United 0-1 West Bromwich Albion
The Red Devils handed the title to City with a lacklustre display at home to doomed bottom club West Brom. Jay Rodriguez headed home to shock winner on 73 minutes to silence Old Trafford and give Sky Blue fans a weekend to remember. If the Baggies had played like this all season, they’d have been fine.
Tottenham Hotspur 1-3 Manchester City
Manchester City showed exactly who’s boss with a resounding win at Wembley. Gabriel Jesus and Ilkay Gundogan put the Sky Blues in charge before Christian Eriksen rode his luck to pull one back. Raheem Sterling restored the two-goal lead which ended City’s sticky run in style.
Liverpool 3-0 Bournemouth
Mo Salah scored his 30th league goal of the season and the Reds coasted to an easy win over the Cherries who are already on holiday. Sadio Mane opened the scoring and Roberto Firmino scored a late third either side of Salah’s header, as Jurgen Klopp’s side remains unbeaten at home.
Southampton 2-3 Chelsea
Three goals in eight minutes turned embarrassment to delight for Chelsea, and hope to a relegation nightmare for the Saints. Dusan Tadic and Jan Bednarek put the hosts two up after an hour, but Olivier Giroud’s brace, which sandwiched Eden Hazard’s strike, turned the match on its head.
Newcastle United 2-1 Arsenal
The Magpies have hit the 40-point mark amid wild celebrations when Matt Ritchie smashed home on 68 minutes to complete a stunning comeback. Alexandre Lacazette had skilfully finished off a flowing Arsenal move on 14 minutes, but Ayoze Perez hit back before half-time to tee up a cracking second half.
Burnley 2-1 Leicester City
The Claret’s blew Leicester away in the first ten minutes to move just two points behind sixth placed Arsenal. Chris Wood and Kevin Long breached the Foxes’ defence before they had settled, and while Leicester dominated much of the remaining 80 minutes only Jamie Vardy could get past Nick Pope.
Swansea City 1-1 Everton
Jordan Ayew bagged a crucial late goal at the Liberty Stadium to inch the Swans a little closer to safety after a Kyle Naughton own goal had put the Toffees in front. The full back nodded into his own net so was mightily relieved when Ayew’s equaliser lifted Swansea five points above the 18th placed Saints.
Huddersfield Town 1-0 Watford
What a result for the Terriers and what a way to win it. Survival is within reach now after Tom Ince hit a dramatic winner in injury time to spark bedlam at the John Smith’s Stadium. Goals have been hard to come by for Huddersfield but 35 points is almost enough.
Crystal Palace 3-2 Brighton & Hove Albion
But not quite, I suspect, so there may be a few nerves jangling on the South coast as defeat to Palace leaves the Seagulls on 35. Wilfried Zaha scored twice in a five goal first half to ease the Eagles’ relegation fears as they climb to just a point behind Brighton.
Congratulations to Manchester City!
