Matchday 34 of the Premier League ended last Monday with the changes at the top being the most relevant news. Manchester City passed Arsenal, and with their victory today against West Ham lead the tournament, with a game in hand and a point ahead.
On the opposite side of the table, Nottingham Forest, Everton, and Southampton are still fighting to escape relegation, but without being able to add many points in the last few games. Leeds (16th) and Leicester (17th) are also trying to avoid the bottom three to stay in England’s top flight.
The top 5 Premier League teams all won their games and maintained their positions at the top of the table. Check out what happened in the main encounters of Premier League matchday 34.
Premier League Matchday 34 – Fulham 1-2 Manchester City – Info
Sunday, April 30th at 7:00 am ET at Craven Cottage
Manchester City -420
Where Can I Watch?
Fulham’s good team tried to make Manchester City’s life difficult in this game, but Erling Haaland concentrated and opened the scoring with a penalty, in the 3rd minute of the game. Striker Carlos Vinícius equalized a few minutes later, but Julián Alvarez broke the tie in the first half.
The two teams wasted other chances in the second half, but the game continued to be very disputed and with very intense marking on both sides. With the victory, the Citizens got closer to first place, and with today’s victory with a record-breaking Haaland, they now are a little more established at the top.
With the defeat, Fulham stagnated in 10th place, staying away from the qualifying positions for international competitions. Manchester City needs a few more wins to secure the Premier League title.
Premier League Matchday 34 – Liverpool 4-3 Tottenham – Info
Sunday, April 30 at 09:30 PM ET at the Anfield Stadium
Where Can I Watch it?
A game of 7 goals and a lot of emotion was what the spectators witnessed at Anfield last Sunday. Liverpool jumped to 5th place in the Premier League and showed that it is in full recovery: 5 wins in the last 5 games for the league.
Coach Jurgen Klopp still manages to motivate his players with the possibility of achieving qualification for next season’s UEFA Champions League. Four points ahead of Liverpool, Manchester United is the one who holds the 4th spot for the most disputed club competition in the world. The Reds certainly have their eyes on their rival’s vacancy and will try to win their last games to achieve this goal.
In this lively clash against Tottenham, Liverpool were ahead for many moments and went to halftime winning by 3-1. Now the Spurs have conceded 12 goals in 3 games, leaving their fans worried about the team’s destiny with the Champions League very far away.
Premier League Matchday 34 – Manchester United 1 – 0 Aston Villa -Info
Sunday, April 30 at 07:00 am ET at Old Trafford Stadium
Manchester United -130
Aston Villa +330
Where Can I Watch it?
Manchester United found an Aston Villa determined to tie the game this past Sunday, but the experience of their key players was decisive in the hosts’ victory.
Casemiro was chosen as the man of the match due to yet another excellent display of defensive performance and sharp passes, with great intensity throughout the match. Meanwhile, Bruno Fernandes was the one who scored the only goal of the game, at 39′ of the first half.
After the draw with Tottenham in the previous round, United won again, maintaining the fourth position in the table and approaching Newcastle (3rd) with a game in hand. The Red Devils’ season has been worthy of praise and expectations for the following year are even greater.
Premier League Matchday 34 – Arsenal 3-1 Chelsea – Info
Tuesday, May 2 at 01:00 PM ET at the Emirates Stadium
Where Can I Watch it?
This was the match that ended a weekend without surprise, where all the betting favorites won. However, many fans had hope that, with the Gunners being so mentally demolished by the latest results, Chelsea could have a chance. They didn’t have. Now the only question is when the Blues’ suffering will end.
The game started with a goal from Martin Odegaard who was a nightmare for the opposing defense all night, as another goal for him sealed the match early on. Not long after, Gabriel Jesús took advantage of a couple of mistakes in the area to end things for good. A solitary goal from Mudueke was the only makeup of yet another ugly face shown by the Londoners.
Arsenal remains in the fight for the title, although having to battle with a mega-behemoth that never stops. They are one point away from Manchester City with one more game. Chelsea, on the contrary, has not yet assured its participation in the next edition of the Premier League, as crazy as it sounds.
