Another week of amazing football. As we move closer to the end of the season, action increases in the fields. This week was no different.34 goals in total. Here is SportsJoint’s review of the Premier League Week 24.
Chelsea Thrash Arsenal
One of the most important matches in the title race. Both team took to the field to get the three points out of this game. Arsenal looked to clear the points gap in the table, with Chelsea trying to seal the league.Chelsea started on full attack with Alonso scoring the opener in the thirteenth minute but injuring Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin in the process. Arsenal’s players looked like 11 individual players trying to contain Chelsea but Chelsea played more like a team. With two more goals from Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas, the match was nothing but over. Oliver Giroud came off the bench to score a late consolation goal for the gunners. With this defeat, all title hopes for Arsenal are but lost. Whereas Chelsea are now nine points clear of the current runners-up Tottenham.
(Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal)
Hull City Stun Liverpool FC
Liverpool Football Club’s terrible start to 2017 continued as they faced 4th defeat in 5 cup and league games. Hull City are currently at 18th position and might even face relegation at the end of the season, but Liverpool denied the three easy points. Hull look a well-drilled and orgainised team with the arrival of their new boss, Silva. Since is arrival, the tigers have beaten Liverpool, drew Manchester United and an EFL Cup semi-final home win over United. While Liverpool looked strong a couple of weeks back and posed a threat to the leaders Chelsea, they now seem deflated and can be assumed to be out of the title race.
(Hull 2-0 Liverpool)
United Beats Leicester
Manchester United maintain their invincible run across all leagues and cups. This was a big game for United for their top $ finish and for defending champions Leicester to avoid relegation. United started with a 4-4-2 formation with Irahimovich and Rashford at the helm, but it was Mikhitariyan who scored a solo goal to give United a 1-0 lead. Then Ibrahimovich and Juan Mata scored, giving United a 3-0 lead in a span of just 7 minutes. Champions Leicester City can be the first team to be in champions league and get relegated. The team is in serious trouble unless they don’t play like the previous season.
(United 3-0 Leicester)
City Defeats Swansea
Manchester City had gone in with Aguero on the bench, and their new signing Gabriel Jesus on the bench. It were 3 easy points against Swansea, a team that looks at relegation at the end of the season. But Swansea fielders started on fire as they equalized the score in the 81st minute, and it looked as if City would have to be satisfied with only one point. But Gabriel Jesus scored a late goal to get City home. As they pick up 3 points, their chances of ending up in the top 4 look higher, but only if the Guardiola’s men can keep up the performance.

Spurs Keep Up
Tottenham re-established a nine-point gap between them and the table toppers Chelsea after Chelsea. Spurs now have a clear air at te second place with City sitting with just 1 point behind them.
