Following the latest international break, Premier League football began with a boom. From Norwich City’s relegation battle against Burnley to a prospective Premier League title playoff involving Manchester City and Liverpool, crucial fixtures were contested all over the table. And these clashes did not lack, with 29 goals scored throughout the ten pertinent matches. 

Manchester City arguably retains the dominant position in the Premier League title hunt after a sensational 2-2 draw versus Liverpool at the Etihad on the Weekend. With seven league games ahead, City stands one point adrift of Jurgen Klopp’s men. If they win all seven, Liverpool will be powerless to stop them.

The title race, nonetheless, was just about the only drama of the Premier League week. If you’re a Tottenham Hotspur fanatic, the weekend was particularly wonderful. They witnessed Arsenal fail to Brighton on Saturday afternoon and then celebrate a huge win versus Aston Villa on Saturday evening. They are presently three points ahead of the north London opponents in fourth place, albeit having played one more game. Arsenal slipped three points beneath their rivals after losing their third game in a succession at home to Brighton, although having a game in hand. The Gunners also face a difficult schedule ahead of their visit to Spurs on May 12.

Manchester United’s aspirations of reaching the top four were smashed at Goodison Park, as was a fan’s phone, which was reportedly smashed to the floor by Cristiano Ronaldo. The episode, for which Ronaldo apologised, unfolded after another poor performance by United, which left them six points behind the Champions League qualification spot. Meanwhile, at the bottom, relegation might be clinched following triumphs for Newcastle, Leeds, and Everton, as well as crushing setbacks for Burnley and Watford.

Premier League points table drama continues again on Saturday, 16th April as Spurs play Brighton, United encounter Norwich, Southampton face Arsenal and Watford will take on Brentford.
