Ronaldo, Son and Foden lead the attack: Premier League team of the week
Following the latest round of Premier League fixtures, the intensity at both ends of the table heightened last week, with the fight for the title, top four, and relegation spots all set to go down to the wire.
In the first match of the weekend, Liverpool edged Newcastle United 1-0 at St James’ Park on Saturday, before Manchester City quickly recaptured top status by beating Leeds United 4-0 at Elland Road.
In the meantime, Aston Villa won 2-0 at Norwich City, sealing the lowest side’s relegation, and Burnley continued their impressive revival under Mike Jackson with a late 2-1 win at Watford, who look poised to join Norwich in the Championship next season. Brighton defeated Wolves 3-0 at Molineux, while Crystal Palace defeated Southampton 2-1 at St Mary’s.
Everton beat Chelsea 1-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday, boosting their own survival hopes. Tottenham’s and Arsenal’s victories – 3-1 over Leicester City and 2-1 over West Ham, respectively – mean that the struggle for a third and fourth place amongst the three London rivals remains wide open.
Manchester United finished the week with a 3-0 victory over Brentford at Old Trafford on Monday night.
