Premier league continues on the roller coaster journey as the top four spots still haven’t been decided with just three games to go until the end of the league. Arsenal have made a stunning comeback after a poor season which saw them get kicked out of the Champions League in the early stages and also in the league cup ending Manchester United’s unbeaten streak of 25 games.

Manchester city demolished Palace with a 5-0 drubbing and if things would have worked according to Pep Guardiola’s masterplan then there would have been more days at the Etihad Stadium that would have looked like this, with David Silva pulling the strings and an opponent beaten with an avalanche of goals. He said he told his players at half-time, “If you arrive in the last 20 minutes of the team with the score just 1-0 against Crystal Palace then we don’t win the game. I said to the players to Score a [second] goal or we don’t win. In other news an in form West Ham beat Spurs under the lights at the London Stadium on Friday night, emphatically de-railing Spurs’ Premier League title hopes and giving those Hammers supporters bragging rights when they go back to work on Monday morning.
Now only TWO teams are unbeaten in their last 5 Premier League games.
– Manchester City
– WEST HAM UNITED

Less than a minute played and Leicester fans signing: "Tottenham Hotspur, it's happened again."
Stadium laughs after too.

Last year it was Chelsea. This year it's West Ham.
It's like Londoners really don't want Tottenham winning the league. ?

Leicester had a fruitful game as they put three past the Watford keeper to comfortably secure three points and move to 9th position in the league. Jurgen Klopp though seems to be missing the killer instinct to bury the games and secure a CL spot as the Saints held them to a damaging draw which could end their top four hopes. Forster kicked the penalty spot and whispered into Milner’s ear which might have played a part in the veteran’s first penalty miss for the Reds while Cedric and James Ward-Browse were booked for time-wasting and dissent.
Fraser Forster's first ever penalty save in the Premier League.
James Milner's first missed penalty since 2009.

At the Emirates stakes were high as both Arsenal and United gave their all to fight for that eluding 4th spot. After a largely uneventful first half, Granit Xhaka opened the scoring with a deflected shot from distance, which looped over goalkeeper David de Gea in the 54th minute. After which former United player Danny Welbeck buried a cross and the game in the 57th minute to see Wenger’s side through and back in the hunt for CL.
