EPL Matchweek 37 roundup: Joy for Chelsea, heartbreak for Man Utd in top-four race

May 6, 2019 By Ali M.
Also, Arsenal is in need of a miracle if they wish to finish in the top four.

The penultimate round of the Premier League is all but done and dusted. With Man City vs Leicester being the only game yet to be played, fans are already looking ahead to the final matchweek.

The recent round of action did not bring joy to everyone. For Chelsea, it was nothing but jubilation as they secured a spot in next season's Champions League after leapfrogging Tottenham into the third spot via a 3-0 win over Watford.

For the likes of Man United and Arsenal, though, it was heartbreak. The Red Devils' draw with Huddersfield has condemned them to a spot in the Europa League while the Gunners' 1-1 draw with Brighton means they are unlikely to overcome the three-point gap and superior goal difference separating them from Spurs.

Here are the standout figures from this weekend.

Hazard assists Chelsea to a top-four finish

The 3-0 win over Watford secured Chelsea a spot in next season's Champions League. While Eden Hazard did not score in that win, the Belgian ace played a crucial role nonetheless, setting up the first two goals. This means he now has 15 assists under his belt, the most in Europe's top leagues.

Arsenal's defense hit a new low

One thing Emery has definitely learned from his debut season with Arsenal is their need for proper defenders. The Gunners have now conceded at least 50 goals in back-to-back seasons, a first for the north London giant formerly known for their defensive resilience since 1982-83/1983-84.

Man United is headed for the Europa League, but here's what Spurs must do to avoid joining them

After that 1-1 draw with Huddersfield, Man United stands no chance of making the Champions League. Only one spot remains and Tottenham is in the driving seat to clinch that ticket. They must pick up a point to confirm that. Arsenal, on the other hand, needs Pochettino's side to lose and they must then overturn an eight-goal goal difference.

Liverpool continues making history in tense title race

The 3-2 win over Newcastle was dramatic and it kept Liverpool's title hopes alive. That tie also saw the Reds enter the history books by becoming the first team in Premier League history to have at least two defenders provide 10+ assists in a single season. Those men were Trent-Arnold and Robertson with 11 assists each.
