The day after Liverpool’s draw against Tottenham (1-1), Manchester City did not miss by beating Newcastle (5-0), this Sunday, on the 36th day of the Premier League. Never pushed, the Citizens made the difference thanks to Sterling (19th, 90th+2), Laporte (38th), Rodri (61st) and Foden (90th+1). A logical success for the English champion, who is now three points ahead of the Reds with three games to go.
The title ambitions of Liverpool have taken some lead this Saturday night. At Anfield, the Reds could only manage a 1-1 draw against Tottenham on the 36th day of the Premier League. It was Spurs who took the lead through Heung-Min Son in the 56th and pressed to try to increase the lead.
Luis Diaz brought the Reds back into the game in the 74th minute to set up a fiery final quarter of an hour. In the end, the scoreboard would not move again. Divock Origi remained on the bench.
Manchester United humiliated
Like Anthony Elanga, totally out of his depth, the Red Devils sank at Brighton on Saturday (4-0). Moisés Caicedo rewarded the home side’s good start by scoring from outside the box with a right-footed shot that went in off the post (15th). Ralf Rangnick’s side were not at their best, however, and Marc Cucurella’s left-footed effort from the edge of the area was punished by a second goal from David de Gea (49′). And the worst was yet to come
Chelsea caught on the edge!
Chelsea can blame themselves… The European champion, under the eyes of his future owner, Todd Boehly, conceded a draw against Wolverhampton (2-2), just as he was heading for a very precious victory in the race for the podium. Despite a double from Lukaku (56th sp, 58th), who has not scored since December 29 in the league, the Blues lost in the last 15 minutes with goals from Trincao (79th) and Coady (90th+7). A very bad result for Chelsea, 3rd, who could see Arsenal, 4th, come back to one point if they win against Leeds on Sunday.
