Two out of Three Teams Fail to Take All Three Points in Game 21 of the Premier League Season!

Premier League Game Week 21 My Review (Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool)

Manchester United can’t seem to do anything wrong since the departure of Jose Mourinho as they have continually won games and remarkably moved up to sixth on the table; comfortably holding that position on the table, that would have been insurmountable earlier in the season. Chelsea’s hopes of winning the title are all but over, with a shocking result against Southampton. Chelsea looked good earlier in the season, but their form has got worse as the season has progressed. Liverpool conceded twenty percent of their goals in their game against Manchester City this week. The title race is now wide open.

Newcastle United v Manchester United My Review

This was a reasonably tough game for Manchester United as they had to wait to near the midway point of the second half to score; it was substitute Romelu Lukaku who broke the dead lock shortly after coming off the bench. Marcus Rashford would be pleased with his performance as he managed to score late in the match and therefore give Manchester United what proved to be an unassailable two-nil lead. What would have pleased Manchester United was that they kept a clean sheet and managed to collect the three points, when the game appeared destined to be destined to be a scoreless draw until Lukaku broke the dead lock.

Chelsea v Southampton My Review

Chelsea would be disappointed with their performance; not taking three points from a game against a possibly relegation bound Southampton team. Chelsea dominated possession, but failed to convert their dominance onto the scoreboard. They had six shots on target, but none of the shots ended up in the back of the net. On a positive note, I was pleased to see Ross Barkley get a start for a second successive game as I rate him highly as far as his ability is concerned; anyone who has played twenty five times for England in midfield at the age of twenty five deserves to be applauded. He also has the ability to be dangerous in the final third, as he showed at his time at Everton as he managed to score twenty one goals. Despite all of that he was substituted off midway through the second half for some reason. Along with that decision, Olivier Giroud wasn’t even on the Chelsea bench, yet they failed to score.

Manchester City v Liverpool My Review

Sadio Mane hit the post in the early stages of the game, the ball bobbled around and nearly went over the line; Liverpool failed to break the dead lock by the slightest of margins. Sergio Aguero opened the scoring with a sublime finish, near the half time break. Trent Alexander-Arnold helped Liverpool equalize near the midway point of the second half with a cross that eventually led to a goal for Roberto Firmino, Andrew Robertson was credited with the assist. Shortly after, Liverpool fell behind for a second time in the match with Raheem Sterling setting up a goal that was scored by Leroy Sane. Aguero nearly made it three-one in favour of Manchester City, but it didn’t matter as Manchester City were victorious two goals to one.
