Premier League 2018/19: Game-week 17 review

After 17 games, it almost looks like the title race could be going on between just two teams- Liverpool and Manchester City. However, Manchester City were on top of the table for a while but Liverpool thrashing Manchester United got Liverpool on top of the table. 

Gabriel Jesus struck twice, both goals coming off of Leroy Sane’s pass. Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored from the header against the run of play to give Everton hope. However, substitute Raheem Sterling dashed the comeback hopes by scoring another one past Jordan Pickford to give Manchester City a comfortable victory against the Everton at Etihad Stadium.

Crystal Palace played without their star winger, Wilfred Zaha and managed to get a hard-fought victory at Selhurst Park courtesy to the one goal scored by Palace’s captain Luka Milivojevic. Palace are still struggling to get in the top half of the table and are currently 15th with just 15 points.

Rondon struck past Lossl in the 55th minute in John Smith’s Stadium. The November Manager of the Month winner Rafa Benitez tactically outclassed David Wagner as Huddersfield failed to score a single goal despite having maximum possession. Newcastle are currently 14th in the table 4 points off of the relegation zone and on the other hand, Huddersfield are in the relegation zone with just 10 points.

Brighton fought hard at the Amex stadium but still lost against Chelsea. Man in form and Real Madrid rumoured player, Eden Hazard was again involved in both the goals as Chelsea won 2-1. However, Chelsea are 8 points behind the leaders.

The weekend came to an end with one of the greatest rivalries in the PL. The defeat of Manchester United by a score line of 3-1 against the Liverpool at Anfield resulted in sacking of Jose Mourinho. Xhedran Shaqiri struck twice after coming as a substitute.
