Alexandre Lacazette started Arsene Wenger’s goodbye tour with a bang, scoring twice against the visiting West Ham.
Alexandre Lacazette started Arsene Wenger’s goodbye tour with a bang, scoring twice against the visiting West Ham.

Saturday lunchtime kick off

Mohamed Salah had a poor game by his standards but still managed to find his way onto the scoresheet for his 31st in the league this season. Salah has now equalled the goal record for a 38-game campaign.

West Brom got one back in front of their fans through a set-piece, which lead to a tense finale at the Hawthorns.

And despite Salah being withdrawn for another centre-back, Dejan Lovren was unable to prevent West Brom drawing level from another set-piece.

Danny Ings, making just his second start under Jurgen Klopp, opened the scoring within just four minutes with his first goal since October 2015.

Ings fell victim to Ahmad Hegazi’s signature finishing move, the Baggy Bomb. The Egyptian defender forgot where he was during the second half as he wrestled Danny Ings to the ground and punched him in the ribs.

Referee Stuart Attwell penalised Danny Ings for unsporting behaviour for not playing along and gave Hegazi a well-earned free kick.

West Brom have been useless for much of the season, winning one point in just 18 games under Alan Pardew, but Darren Moore earned a draw against Liverpool and beat Manchester United at Old Trafford in his first game in charge.

West Brom have Newcastle, Spurs and Crystal Palace in the final three games of a season to largely forget for most fans, who will be hoping to see Moore of their new manager next season if he can keep producing these results.

Saturday afternoon kick off

Watford hosted Crystal Palace in the only 3.p.m. game on Saturday. Wilfired Zaha was the only player fantasy football managers were interested in this game, some more so than others.

Despite playing upfront again, Zaha failed to take a shot all game despite managing 10 in the previous two games while deployed in the same role.

Palace only managed one shot on goal all game, making Zaha’s yellow card in the 64th minute the biggest talking point in the game. It was his fourth booking for simulation since the 2015-16 season.

Luka Milivojevic failed to score or assist for the first time in five games but true to form, the Serbian was deadly from a set-piece, hitting the bar with one effort.

One Watford fan however stuck up for Zaha, claiming he did not dive.

Sunday lunchtime kick offs

Kevin Long has been Burnley’s most polarising player recently with a goal, assist, and an own goal in three matches. He was at it again early for the Clarets with threat from a set-piece.

Burnley may have the fourth best defence in the league in terms of goals conceded, but they have failed to keep a clean sheet in 10 of their last 12 games.

However, only Chelsea scored more than once during that 12-game span, firing two past them at Turf Moor.

Arsenal hosted West Ham in what was the first home game since Arsene Wenger announced that this was his final season at the Emirates. Marko Arnautovic’s equaliser looked set to spoil the party, before Aaron Ramsey made it 2-1 and Lacazette finished the Hammers off with a late brace.

Sunday afternoon kick off

Manchester United crowned Manchester City as champions last Sunday following their 1-0 loss to West Brom, so the Ethiad had a carnival atmosphere for their first game at home since winning the league.

A lot of fantasy football manages had a lot riding on this game.

It took just 12 minutes before David Silva opened the scoring for the Citizens. The Spaniard was heavily involved four minutes later when he slotted through Fabian Delph who crossed the ball to an open Raheem Sterling in the middle of the goal for a simple tap-in.

Gabriel Jesus was growing visibly frustrated throughout the game as Manchester City’s goals avoided him.

Therefore, just after the hour mark, he took the penalty off Ilkay Gundogan, who scored from the spot at Wembley the previous week, but missed with his own strike.

But his persistence paid off, as he ran off the back of Alfie Mawson’s shoulder to head home Yaya Toure’s looped cross.
