Matip celebrating his goal against Southampton

PL WRAP UP - WEEK 37: Sweet victory keeps Liverpool in the title race

Spurs kicked off match week 37 with a 1-0 win over Burnley at Tottenham Hotspur stadium. The home side started off strong with shots from both Son and Kane being denied by Burnley.

It was Kane’s penalty in the first-half stoppage time that gave Spurs the lead, after a handball by Barnes. Burnley tried their best to level, but Spurs held their defence well, and secured all three points to move fourth.

A third win in four earns Spurs a total of 68 points, two ahead of Arsenal. Burnley stay 18th with 34 points, one behind Leeds who have played a game more.  

West Ham stunned the world as they held current table leaders Manchester City at a 2-2 draw at the London stadium.

Bowen opened the scoreboard for West Ham in the 24th minute and doubled their lead just before half time to secure his brace and put his team at a comfortable lead.

Manchester City were not going down without a fight as Grealish pulled one back in the 49th minute, and they managed to level the score 20 minute later after Mahrez’s cross was headed into the net by West Ham’s own Coufal. Pep’s side had the chance to sit comfortably at the top of the table when a penalty was awarded after Jesus was brought down by Dawson, but Mahrez’s efforts were saved by Fabianski.

Manchester remain top with 90 points, one ahead of second place Liverpool, while West Ham stay seventh with 56 points, two behind Manchester United.

Arsenal’s hope for a top four finish was dented after a 2-0 loss to Newcastle at St. James’ Park saw the Gunners drop crucial points.

After a quiet first half. Newcastle took the lead in the 55th minute after Joelinton’s low cross was converted into an own goal from White. Guimaraes doubled the Magpies’ lead right before full time, leaving Arsenal empty handed.

Back-to-back losses leave Arsenal fifth with 66 points, two behind Spurs with a game left. Newcastle move to 12th with 46 points.

Liverpool remain hot on Manchester City’s heels as they beat Southampton 2-1 at St. Mary’s stadium.

It was Southampton who went ahead first in the game after a goal from Redmond put the Saints in the lead. Minamino levelled the score in the 27th minute after an assist from Jota, and the game was anyone’s at half time. The Reds managed to take the lead in the 67th minute after a header from Matip, and Liverpool secured all three crucial points.

The victory puts Liverpool one point behind Manchester City, and with the final matches this Sunday, the title race is still on.
