Game week 35 came to a close on Monday night with a strike from Irish striker Michael Obafemi in the 96th minute to dent Man United's Champions League aspirations. The round saw plenty of upsets and action with West Ham, Watford, Bournemouth, and Aston Villa earning crucial wins in the fight against relegation, Sheffield United and Wolves clawing their back into European contention and Norwich City being confirmed as the first team to succumb to the drop.
Another weekend and another round of Premier League games completed. Frank Lampard's Chelsea secured a valuable win over Spurs in the race for fourth spot. The match was marred by VAR controversy as Giovani Lo Celso was inexplicably allowed to stay on the field after raking his studs down Cesar Azpilicueta's leg.
Game week 27 came to an end in the Etihad on Wednesday night as Man City strolled to a 2-0 victory over hapless West Ham. Elsewhere Man United breathed new life into their fight for the Champions League by defeating Chelsea 2-0 at Stamford Bridge. Sheffield United and Spurs won again to close the gap on a top four spot or should I say top five? And Liverpool continued their stroll to the title with a 1-0 success over Norwich City.
So the superlatives are starting to run out for Liverpool as they reach the 70 point mark before the end of January. Their 23rd win out of 24 matches was racked up thanks to a 2-0 away success at West Ham. The massive 19 point advantage they have over their rivals leads me to say, this title race is over.
Game week 16 concluded at the London Stadium where Arsenal secured three precious points in a 3-1 win over the hapless Hammers. It was a huge victory for Freddie Ljungberg's men who had gone nine matches without a success; the club's worst run of form for 42 years. Elsewhere Liverpool and Leicester won again, Man United defeated City in the derby, and Duncan Ferguson inspired Everton to overcome Chelsea 3-1 at Goodison Park to take The Toffees out of the relegation zone.
It was ultimately a disappointing international break for Irish fans as the 1-1 draw with Denmark in Dublin on Monday night was not enough to secure a place at Euro 2020. Mick McCarthy's men will have another shot at qualifying for the continent's football jamboree next summer but that is at the end of March and we have plenty of Premier League action to keep us occupied over the coming months.
Game week nine's action came to an end with Arsenal's old frailties coming to the fore as they went down 1-0 to Sheffield United in south Yorkshire. Elsewhere, Man United produced a much improved display to earn a 1-1 draw against league leaders Liverpool at Old Trafford, Leicester extended their fine form with another three points via a 2-1 victory over Burnley, and Spurs' woes continued limping to a 1-1 home draw against bottom placed Watford.
