City gets a little revenge to move back into first

After a rough week that included getting eliminated from the Champions League quarterfinals by Tottenham, City hosted Spurs again on Saturday and earned a 1-0 win to jump Liverpool and move back into first place in the league. It was an early goal from Phil Foden that proved to be enough in a game where both teams appeared to have tired legs. The goal came off a lovely bit of play that included a header assist from Sergio Aguero. Take a look:

As a result, City moves back into first by a point and puts the pressure on Liverpool ahead of tomorrow’s game with Cardiff City. 

Brighton earns potentially valuable draw

After losing to Cardiff midweek, Brighton’s five-point lead over the drop zone was reduced to just two. But the southern club managed to go on the road to Wolves and earn a draw that gives this team what could be a very valuable point in the race for survival. 

Brighton had zero shots on goal, Wolves had 22 shots overall and the Seagulls just hung on.

Newcastle safe as Perez shines

Ayoze Perez has his first Premier League hat trick. The Spanish striker scored three times for Newcastle in the 3-1 win over Southampton to move his club 10 points clear of the drop zone and likely cementing their place in the league next season. Newcastle’s two-game winning streak has them in 12th place now with 41 points as coach Rafa Benitez has been able to get his team to get the results it needs.

Perez’s first goal was quite the hit, splitting defenders to go far post:
