According to many following this Gameweek 23, the English Premier League has a new champion, Manchester City. The Citizens demolished Liverpool and extended their lead in the standings. But apart from them, who are the winners of the round. And which teams are the losers. Stay tuned and find out.
It was a no brainer. Pep Guardiola’s side demolished the champions at Anfield, and no injuries or other factors can justify such a high loss of the Reds. Simply, City was better. Much better.
Ilkay Gundogan finally receives the respect he deserves, as the German showed his fantastic quality after stepping in to replace the injured Kevin De Bruyne. That is it for City, we won’t be bothering you with additional writing.
The Magpies are slowly waking up, and this was the second win in the past three games for this unit. It is a big deal for the team from the north, who kept the distance between them and Fulham at 10 points. They would defeat Southampton, 3-2, in a wild match.
For more than 40 minutes, the home team had to play with a player fewer on the pitch, but eventually, Newcastle saved its skin, which is a remarkable success, regardless of the opponent.
The Peacocks kept its net intact while scoring twice against Crystal Palace, to post its third win in the previous four games. Patrick Bamford proved to be one of the best attackers in the league, and it wouldn’t be odd to see him leaving Elland Road at the end of the year.
At the moment, Leeds is 10th in the standings, but closer to the zone that leads to Europe than relegation.
We get it that the Reds had an incredible number of injured players and that, for instance, Virgil Van Dijk is out. But still, losing 1-4 at home to City is a slap in the face, which definitely broke their title dreams.
We haven’t seen the Reds broken into pieces for a long time, and that was exactly what City did last Sunday. Broke them into tiny pieces.
Solskajer said it himself, “we are not title contenders,” following a 3-3 draw vs. Everton. This was also the moment when one dream came to its end, and likeways Liverpool, the Red Devils had a nasty experience.
A last-minute goal was what took the title hopes, bringing back the harsh reality to Old Trafford. And the reality is that the United might fight for the top 4 places if they continue to perform like this.
The Gunners once again entered their negative mode, and they haven’t won in four of the previous five games. What makes their results so tragic is the fact that they play good for a while, and then manage to ruin everything in the span of seven days.
As time goes by, questions about Arteta’s capability are starting to show up, and the majority of the fans are now regretting having Unai Emery fired. The results under his leadership were way better.
