Premier League Matchday 19 Roundup: Liverpool Triumph over Manchester City

Manchester City succumbed to defeat at the hands of Liverpool courtesy of a sublime strike from Georginio Wijnaldum. Aguero’s return had no effect on City’s fortunes as they were unable to convert their chances.

Hull City earned a point against Everton in a 2-2 draw that was highlighted by a brilliant free kick from Robert Snodgrass. Micheal Dawson opened the scoring for Hull, but a David Marshall own goal got the Toffees back in the game on the stroke of half-time.

Robert Snodgrass scored a sensational free-kick in the 65th-minute, but Ross Barkley’s 84th-minute equaliser saw Everton come out of the match with a draw.

Sunderland’s woes continued as Andre Gray scored a hat-trick which just about ruined the weekend for the Black Cats. Ashley Barnes was also on target for Burnley as Sean Dyche’s men picked up a 4-1 win at Turf Moor against Sunderland.

Jermain Defoe shone in the midst of a precarious situation as he scored Sunderland’s lone goal.

Stoke City posed a different type of threat to Chelsea as they put two goals past the league leaders thanks to a seemingly effective counter-attacking style of play.

Gary Cahill put the Blues in front as he headed home a well-taken corner kick in the 34th minute. Bruno Martins Indi scored the equaliser for Stoke in the 46th minute before Willian hit the back of the net to take the scores up to 2-1.

Crouch then scored a goal in typical fashion before Willian’s second goal of the game, and a Diego Costa strike saw Chelsea grab a 4-2 win.

West Ham succumbed to a disappointing 1-0 defeat as Slimani’s 22nd-minute strike was enough to seal the win for the Foxes.

Manchester United was nearly stunned by Middlesbrough as Grant Leadbitter looked to have scored the winner for Boro as the Red Devils appeared set to drop points.

But Anthony Martial and Pogba saved the day scoring one goal apiece which saw Mourinho’s side pick up a 2-1 win over Boro.

Swansea was on the receiving end of a three-goal thumping in their first game since the sacking of Bob Bradley. Benik Afobe, Ryan Fraser, and Josh King were all on target as Bournemouth grabbed a 3-0 win over Swansea.

West Brom came out on top in a tightly contested match against Southampton as Matt Phillips and Robson-Kanu scored a goal each. Shane Long netted Southampton’s only goal as Tony Pulis’ men came off with a 2-1 win.

Elsewhere, Watford suffered a defeat in the first Premier League game of 2017. Harry Kane and Dele Alli both bagged two goals apiece for Spurs while Younes Kaboul scored a consolation goal for Watford as the match ended 4-1.

Olivier Giroud scored a “scorpion kick” as he opened the scoring for Arsenal against Crystal Palace. Alex Iwobi was also on target for the Gunners as they recorded a 2-0 home win over Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace.
