A long and a tiring week of Premier League football comes to an end this week as Chelsea stayed four points clear on the top. Interestingly, the race for top-4 blew wide open as the teams will be up and running and might be up for the biggest of challenges in the next few game weeks to stay in the hunt.
Here are the scores from the last Premier League gameweek:
Now, looking into the best goals of this week, we can assure you that in spite of a low scoring week, there were some goals to cheer on and make this week a happening one.
Philippe Coutinho against Crystal Palace:
With only five games remaining, Jurgen Klopp was up for gaining all points this week against a pumped up Crystal Palace side at Anfield. The game flew off to a great start after that mouth-watering free-kick from Philippe Coutinho they flew past the wall and into the net in spite of the goalkeeper judging the flight right. The problem for Liverpool came right after the goal they scored. Benteke suddenly came into the limelight and scored two past the Liverpool defense and took away all three points to hurt Liverpool’s run for top-4. Well, despite the loss this goal will still linger for some time to come.
Charlie Daniels against Middlesborough:
Bournemouth dominated the game against Middlesborough this week and their pressing helped them to score four past the Borough defense. Now, pressing was the key behind the first three of the Cherries goals and the final goal arrived from a spot kick. The free kick didn’t go as planned, but it was brilliantly executed by Daniels to earn himself a goal after dribbling past the wall and sliding the ball past the goal.
Marten De Roon against Sunderland:
A must win game for both sides to kick-start their campaign and save their spot in the Premier League next season and that too on a derby day speaks volumes as to how much both sides played for a win. At the end, Middlesborough got to present the last laugh as De Roon’s superb goal was enough to seal three points for the home side.
