Chelsea maintained their momentum for a top four finish with a 2-0 win over Fulham. Meanwhile, Gareth Bale’s hat trick helped Tottenham to a 4-0 win over relegation bound Sheffield United.
A Sunday afternoon drama at Old Trafford forced the Man United Vs Liverpool game to be called off. Man united fans invaded the stadium a couple of hours before kick-off in protest of the club owners. Today, we look at five talking points from the Premier League match week 34;
City’s 3rd Premier league title in 4 years is Inevitable
Pep Guardiola’s Man City beat Roy Hodgson’s men 2-0 to go 13 points clear of the premier League table with 4 games to go. Goals from Sergio Aguero and Ferran Torres secured a win for the Citizens after a goalless first half. With United’s game against Liverpool pending, City would be confirmed Champions if Man united lose to Liverpool. This would be Guardiola’s 3rd title in the last four Premier League seasons.
On the other end of the Premier league table, the relegation battle seems all but over as we go into the final four games. Sheffield united already relegated, West Brom and Fulham’s chances of survival is almost impossible. Burnley and Newcastle must also avoid complacency. As it stands, Fulham and West brom are likely joining Sheffield in the second division.
The Blue maintain top four momentum
Kai Havertz brace for Chelsea helped the blues to a 2-0 win over Fulham in the London derby. Chelsea sits 4th in the premier league table on 61 points and two points off 3rd placed Leicester City. Tomas Tuchel’s men now are now 5 points ahead of 5th placed Tottenham. The former PSG boss has improved Chelsea’s form since his arrival, lifting them from 9th in the Premier League table to fourth. The Blues now looks comfortable in the final Champions league spot.
Gareth Bale’s hat trick downs Sheffield in Premier league clash
Spurs scored four goals against relegation bound Sheffield united in their Premier league clash on Sunday. Gareth Bale scored a hat trick for Tottenham, his first hat trick for Spurs since 2012. Spurs now sits 5th in the table and would be hoping to book a place in the Europa League as top four finish looks out of reach.
