Premier League Opinions: Premier League Gameweek 30 TOTW

This week’s set of Premier League fixtures had its fair share of surprise results with certain games standing out above the others. It certainly was an eventful one packed with thrills and spills. 

The biggest game of the weekend was undoubtedly the showdown for 4th place at the Emirates between Unai Emery’s Arsenal and Manchester United, who were unbeaten in the league since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge in December. Eventually, Arsenal overcame the challenge and won the match 2-0. 

Chelsea played out a touch 1-1 draw against Wolves while league leaders Manchester City triumphed over Watford by a 3-1 scoreline. Elsewhere, Liverpool came back from an early Burnley goal to win 4-2 and keep the pressure on City. 

The two real surprises of the weekend came in the form of wins for Cardiff City and Southampton against West Ham and Tottenham respectively. And Brighton were massive winners too as they picked up a very impressive 2-1 away win at Palace
