Premier League : Manchester City, accroché à West Ham, prend 4 points d’avance sur Liverpool, Leeds n’est plus relégable

As part of the 37th and penultimate day of the Premier League, five meetings took place on the other side of the Channel with the main poster moving from Manchester City to West Ham. Still leaders three points behind Liverpool, the Skyblues had to win in London before Liverpool’s deadline, scheduled for Southampton on Tuesday evening. With Grealish and Mahrez in support of Jesus, the team led by Pep Gardiola put their opponent in difficulty, as usual, but despite many chances, the accuracy was lacking in the last gesture, whether Grealish (16th) or Jesus (36th, 37th).

Quite the opposite of the Hammers, who demonstrated clinical efficiency like Jarrod Bowen, author of a double in the first period. Back from the locker room, the Cityzens put as much intensity into the game. Grealish, on a happy Rodri header, reduced the mark for his team in the wake of half-time, before seeing Coufal deflect the free kick of Mahrez in the goals of his goalkeeper to reset the counters to zero. But while Jesus got a penalty late in the game, Mahrez missed his shot from 11 meters, well saved by Fabianski for his 4th penalty saved this season. A point from a draw which nevertheless allows City to take a four-point lead over the Reds and to have its destiny in hand against Aston Villa the

Leeds come out of the red zone

In the other afternoon matches concerning the first-round teams, Wolverhampton said goodbye to all European competition, held in check at home by relegated Norwich (1-1) and not taking advantage of the misstep of the hammers. Pukki unblocked the mark before the break before former Angevin Ait Nouri equalized before the hour mark. Despite a big domination in possession (more than 60%), Wolves will have to wait until next season to aim for the Europe.

Norwich returns to a point behind another condemned to the descent, Watford, who fell on his ground against Leicester (1-5). The Foxes had however been surprised by Joao Pedro before completely unfolding in this meeting, in particular thanks to the doubles of Vardy and Barnes. Finally, Leeds took a point at home against Brighton and temporarily pulled out of the area. Still, former Gunner Welbeck opened the scoring for the Seagulls, but Dutch defender Struijk equalized in added time to snatch a draw and try to survive in the Premier League.
