Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the only bright spark in a Gameweek dominated by disappointment.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was the only bright spark in a Gameweek dominated by disappointment.

Saturday lunchtime kick off

After a decade in the top-flight, Stoke will be playing Championship football next year following their 2-1 defeat to the visiting Crystal Palace.

Stoke took the lead through Xherdan Shaqiri just before the break, but Palace pulled it back with strikes from James McArthur and Patrick van Aanholt.

Every year, relegated teams are torn apart by the survivors of the Premier League survival battle, looking for any top-flight quality players looking to stay in the league.

Stoke’s Joe Allen is definitely mid-table quality, along with Jack Butland, Erik Pieters, and Xherden Shaqiri. The Suiss has already been linked with a move to West Ham which could see him reunited alongside former Potters’ teammate Marko Arnautovic.

Stoke’s playing style has not been the most easy on the eye this season so it’s no surprise that there are so few neutrals who will miss them.

Saturday afternoon kick offs

West Brom were undefeated under new boss Darren Moore heading into Saturday’s game and following a last-minute winner against Spurs, Moore kept his undefeated record.

Interestingly, West Brom have had the third best record in the league under Moore with 11 points from three wins and a pair of draws. Only the Manchester clubs have bettered that total with 12 points.

Swansea recent woes have come at the worst time of the season for them. Carlos Carvahal won eight of his opening 14 games in all competitions for the Swans. But Swansea have not won in eight games since the start of March, failing to score in six of them.

Who’s your favourite Moore?

The Saturday 3pm games also saw Leicester lose and fail to score for the third game in a row. Sorry Vardy owners.

Saturday evening kick off

It only took until the penultimate week, but Nathan Redmond scored his first goal of the season. Get him on the plane.

Everton fans have been booing manager Sam Allardyce despite taking nine points in his last five games. The results however don’t tell the whole story, as shown by Everton’s fortunate last minute equaliser against the Saints at home. Big Sam did his job and stabilised the ship but Everton fans already want a new manager to start afresh next season.

Sunday lunchtime kick off

Saturday was anything but super with the uninspiring Stoke v Crystal Palace and Everton v Southampton gracing our screens. Sunday featured five of the top seven and included Manchester City, hungry to break some goalscoring record at home to a newly(ish)-promoted side.

Pep Guardiola deployed a full-strength starting XI, which included Raheem Sterling, to the excitement of many.

But Huddersfield held on firm to earn a well-deserved point which should be enough to see them retain their spot in the top-flight next season.

Sunday afternoon kick offs

Liverpool’s fab-3 have looked tired and lethargic since facing Darren Moore and it showed against Chelsea who managed to keep Liverpool’s attack under wraps. The Reds also failed to breach Stoke’s defence in Gameweek 36. Have they been saving themselves for Europe?

Mohamed Salah was desperate enough to dive and referee Anthony Taylor duly punished the Egyptian with his first yellow card of the season.

Olivier Giroud has been clinical recently for Chelsea, scoring three from only nine shots, all of which have come from inside the box.

Alvaro Morata is better with his head than with his feet but Olivier Giroud is the best header of the ball in the league.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has now scored or assisted 12 goals in 10 starts for Arsenal. One to watch for next season.

Arsenal saw off Burnley in style for Arsene Wenger’s final home game in charge after 22 years at Arsenal.

The top-four all failed to score this week against Brighton, West Brom, Huddersfield and Chelsea.
