More games went ahead this week, and it was a nail-biter.
Premier League leaders Manchester City took a trip to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal, and another dramatic stoppage time winner saw Pep’s side claim their 11th straight league win.
It was the home side that took the lead in the first half as Saka found the net in the 31st minute. Arsenal went into the half time break ahead, but their hopes to keep that lead ended in the second half when Mahrez converted a penalty awarded to Manchester City after Silva was fouled by Xhaka.
Things took a turn for the worse as Gabriel was shown a second yellow card and Arsenal were down to 10 men. Despite their efforts to try and keep the score levelled, Rodri’s stoppage time goal won it for Manchester City, and Pep’s side go 11 points clear at the top and Arsenal remain fourth.
A brace from Lanzini helped West Ham claim an exciting 2-3 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. Antonio found the net first in the 22nd minute, and teammate Lanzini didn’t take long to follow suit as the Hammers go two goals up in the first half.
Lanzini then came back in the second half to help his team go three goals up from the penalty spot after a handball from Milivojevic. Palace weren’t giving up as Edouard and substitute Olise scored a goal each to give Palace fans hope, but it wasn’t enough as the game ended 2-3 to West Ham, and they now go a point behind fourth place Arsenal, as Palace stay 11th.
Chelsea hosted Liverpool at Stamford Bridge for a thrilling 2-2 draw. The Reds opened up the scoreboard with a goal from Mane in the ninth minute, his first goal in eight league games. It didn’t take long for Salah to double their lead in the 26th minute, and Liverpool were two goals ahead in the first half hour.
Kovacic soon pulled one back for his team in the 42nd minute, giving Chelsea fans a glimmer of hope. Pulisic then levelled the scoreboard right before half time. Both teams tried their best to snag a late winner, but the game ended levelled, and Chelsea remain second, one point ahead of third place Liverpool.
Another dramatic stoppage-time winner handed Ragnick his first loss as Manchester United’s manager as Wolves defeated them 1-0 at Old Trafford. Wolves put United to the test as they had 14 shots in the first half, a Premier League club record.
After several attempts from both sides throughout the game, it was Moutinho’s late winner that gave Wolves the upper-hand, and the game ended 1-0, Wolves’ first league win at Old Trafford. Ragnick’s side stay seventh, four points behind fourth place Arsenal, and Wolves move up to eight.
