Premier League Matchday 27 Roundup: Chelsea Keep 10 Points Gap At Top

Wenger’s decision to drop Alexis Sanchez from the starting lineup against Liverpool ultimately proved to be a wrong one as Arsenal lost 3-1.

Liverpool went ahead early in the tie after a long goal kick from Simon Mingolet ended up in Arsenal’s attacking third before being picked up by a Liverpool player who kicked off a series of intricate passes that eventually reached the feet of Firmino, who opened the scoring.

Arsenal pulled one back after Danny Welbeck converted a pass from Alexis Sanchez who came on at half-time, but Georginio Wijnaldum closed the scoring in added time as Arsenal dropped out of the top four.

Manchester United endured a typical game against Bournemouth as they were held to a 1-1 draw after creating a multitude of goalscoring opportunities only for them to be put wide or saved by Artur Boruc.

Manchester United enjoyed the first quarter of the game as they dominated the tie before Marcos Rojo put them in front in the 23rd-minute. Bournemouth seemed to find their way back into the game after Rojo’s goal as Josh King scored a penalty in the 40th-minute to draw Bournemouth level.

An incident occurred soon after King’s goal as Andrew Surman was sent off after pushing Zlatan Ibrahimovic to the ground after the Swede engaged in violent conduct by seemingly elbowing Tyrone Mings to the ground.

Ibrahimovic and Mings continued the game as Kevin Friend failed to issue them any cards for the incident, but both players are set to face disciplinary action from the FA. United failed to capitalise on the defeat Arsenal suffered at Anfield.

League leaders Chelsea secured a 2-1 victory over West Ham on Monday night with Eden Hazard and Diego Costa getting their names on the scoresheet for the Blues.

West Ham’s consolation goal came through Manuel Lanzini as Chelsea maintained their 10 point gap at the top of the table.

Leicester City continued their resurgence following Claudio Ranieri’s sacking as they secured a 3-1 win over Hull City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Sam Clucas put Hull in front in the 14th-minute, but Christian Fuchs pulled one back for Leicester in the 28th-minute with a deftly executed strike.

Riyad Mahrez then went on a solo run at the edge of Hull’s 18-yard-area as he took players on and drove the ball into the back of the net in an exquisite manner. The goal was his first from open play in the Premier League since April 2016.

Tom Huddlestone made matters worse for Hull as he scored an own goal which saw Leicester grab a 3-1 win.

Big Sam finally got Crystal Palace out of the drop zone after a solid 2-0 win over West Brom. Wilfried Zaha opened the scoring in the second half before Andros Townsend, approaching West Brom’s backline, pulled off a couple of step-overs before blasting the ball into the back of the net.

Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough succumbed to a 2-0 defeat away at Stoke which pushed them into the relegation zone after Crystal Palace’s win.

A brace from Marko Arnautovic condemned Boro to the drop zone as they failed to muster up any decent opportunities against Stoke City.

Swansea’s fine form under Paul Clement continued as they grabbed a 3-2 win over a hard-to-beat Burnley side at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday.

Andre Gray snared a brace for Burnley, but Lorente started and closed the scoring for Swansea as they won the game. Martin Olsson also got on the scoresheet for the Swans.

Tottenham and Everton squared off in a battle of strikers as Lukaku and Kane were the stars of the show.

Harry Kane scored two goals and Dele Alli nicked one as Spurs secured a 3-2 win over Everton who’s goals came courtesy of Lukaku and Enner Valencia.

Aguero and Leroy Sane were on target as Manchester City strolled to a 2-0 win over Sunderland. Sunderland remain rock-bottom and they look likely to get relegated judging by their recent showings.

Manolo Gabbiadini continued his impressive form for Southampton as he nicked a goal in their 4-3 win over Watford.

Troy Deeney, Stefano Okaka and Abdoulaye Doucoure were on target for Watford but goals from Redmond (2) Tadic and Gabbiadini saw Southampton steal the three points at Vicarage road.
