Ronaldo celebrating his penalty against Norwich

PL WRAP UP: WEEK 16 - A week of game-saving penalties

Manchester City hosted Wolves at the Etihad stadium and beat the visitors 1-0 in a thrilling matchup. 

Despite a goalless first half, there was still drama as Wolves’ striker Jimenez was sent off after seeing two yellow cards in 30 seconds. 

Manchester City were awarded a penalty after a handball by Moutinho. Sterling then put City ahead with his 100th Premiere League goal, and the game ended with Pep’s side securing all three points. Manchester City stay top, one point clear off Liverpool and two off Chelsea. 

A dramatic visit to Stamford bridge saw Leeds put Chelsea to the test, despite Tuchel’s side winning the game 3-2. 


Raphinha put Leeds ahead in the 28th minute after Alonso fouled James, awarding them a penalty. Chelsea levelled right before the halftime whistle with a goal from Mount. 

Jorginho then scored from the penalty spot after Raphinha’s foul on Rudiger, and gave Chelsea the lead, but it wasn’t long before Leeds youngster Gelhardt levelled the score, 81 seconds after coming on. 

But eventually it was Jorginho’s second penalty in stoppage-time that secured Chelsea’s win against the tough away side, they remain third with 36 points. 

Arsenal cruised through a 3-0 win against Southampton at the Emirates Stadium, breaking their two-match losing run. 

Lacazatte opened up the scoreboard in the 21st minute, and teammate Odegaard followed in suit shortly after, another goal in his third successive game. 

Despite the Saints’ efforts to make a comeback, Gabriel secured the Gunners’ win in the second half, and Arteta’s side ended the game with three easy points as they move up to sixth, a point behind fourth-place West Ham. 

A 14th Premier League goal from Salah earned Liverpool a 1-0 win against former Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa. 

Despite Villa’s hard pressing and attempt to give the Reds’ a run for their money, Salah scored from the penalty spot after he had been fouled by Mings. The win at Anfield keeps Liverpool at second with 37 points, while Villa drop to 12th. 

A superb display from Manchester United’s goalkeeper De Gea and a penalty from Ronaldo earned Ralf Ragnick a second win against Norwich at Carrow Road. 

A goalless first half gave Norwich a glimmer of hope, but after Aarons’ foul on Ronaldo in the second half, the United star put one past Krul to secure the win to climb to fifth, level with West Ham, while Norwich stay bottom.
