The Premier League gameweek 13 saw a total of 21 goals across 9 matches as unfortunately one match had to be postponed. Premier League returned after a European midweek packed with goals. Let’s have look at the events of the gameweek:-
Premier League Gameweek 13: Round 1
Arsenal 2-0 Newcastle
The Premier League opened up with Newcastle travelling to London to face Arsenal. The Gunners continued their resurgence after Newcastle with a comfortable scoreline. Smith Rowe and Tavares exchange of passes released Saka to run behind who drilled the shot low into the net. The second goal came from a beautiful Tomiyasu assist to Martinelli to clip it in the left corner of the net. Arsenal keeps marching towards a top 4 finish.
Norwich City 0-0 Wolves
Norwich had better chances overall but did not have the finish to kill the game. The Canaries are now unbeaten in their last 3 games but it will be hard to get out of that relegation battle. Wolves have underperformed considering they are 6th on the table and Norwich who are 19th created more chances but failed to get a result.
Crystal Palace 1-2 Aston Villa
Steven Gerrard has got his second win for Aston Villa. Villa took the lead in the first 15 minutes after a corner from Young fell into the legs of Targett as he lashed it in the bottom far corner. John McGinn’s stunning strike extended Villa’s lead in the 86th minute. Guehi was at the end of the cross from the Kouyate to get a consolation goal for Palace in the 95th minute.
Liverpool 4-0 Southampton
Liverpool were rampant against Southampton again on Anfield. Diogo Jota got himself a brace in the 32nd minute. Thiago collected the ball and dribbled till his effort was deflected past McCarthy. Moreover, Van Djik returned on the scoresheet after a patent Alexander-Arnold corner. In addition, Southampton barely had any questions to ask Liverpool.
Brighton 0-0 Leeds United
Leeds United are struggling on the edge of the relegation zone. They had to get this result right. However, Brighton knew what they were up against and both teams ended up cancelling each other out. Both teams had 4 shots on target and was not an eventful evening.
Premier League Gameweek 13: Round 2
Brentford 1-0 Everton
Even though Brentford had lesser shots than Everton they were able to find the back of the net. The referee pointed on the spot after he saw a high boot from Townsend. Ivan Toney successfully converted the penalty past Jordan Pickford. Brentford are now 12th on the table ahead of Everton who are 14th on the table.
Burnley vs Tottenham
The match was suspended due to heavy snowfall on the pitch.
Leicester City 4-2 Watford
This game had the most number of goals in gameweek 13. A James Maddison effort was equalized with a Joshua King penalty. The Foxes got themselves a 2 goal lead before the 45-minute mark with 2 goals from Jamie Vardy in the space of 10 minutes. Emmanuel Dennis got on the scoresheet in the 61st minute before Leicester got their 4th goal courtesy of Ademola Lookman. Absolute entertainment.
Manchester City 2-1 West Ham United
As always City dominated their opponent in all areas and had good chances to score. Manchester City got their lead through Ilkay Gundogan who also assisted Fernandhino’s goal in the 90th minute. Further, Manuel Lanzini was able to get one back in the 94th minute but that was too late for the Hammers to get back in the game. West Ham are still 4 on 4th on the table 6 points behind Manchester City.
Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United
Chelsea were absolutely dominant of the two but had very little to show for. Manchester United scored 1 goal out of just 2 shots on target. Jadon Sancho took the ball from a Jorginho mishap and put it in the back of the net. Chelsea’s continuous attack got themselves a penalty when Jorginho redeemed himself as he sent De Gea the other way. Chelsea are still on top with just one more point as United looks to improve their results.
