Premier League Round-up: Gameweek 36

Premier League Round-up: Alisson's goal keeps Liverpool afloat, West Ham slip once again

May 17, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The top half of the Premier League table is looking interesting once more with just two games left to play in the ongoing campaign.

The Premier League took yet another incredible twist over the weekend and the state of affairs at the top half of the table may well drag on into the final game of the season to be properly decided. With the coronation of Manchester City already completed and the status of Manchester United as potential runners-up looking is also looking very likely. The two remaning Champions League slots are yet to be determined but over the weekend both Chelsea and Leicester City were not involved in any game in the Premier League as they had FA Cup final commitments.

However, a win for Liverpool in their meeting with West Brom gave a different outlook to things following a dramatic encounter. As at the 94th minute, many thought that spoils were going to be shared between the pair but a historic goal by goalkeeper Alisson Becker who run the full length of the pitch for a corner-kick, ultimately handed Jurgen Klopp's men all the three points.

Meanwhile, West Ham had their chances of securing a Europa League spot dealt yet another blow following the 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion while Tottenham Hotspur usurped the Hammers and climbed into the sixth position with a 2-0 win over Wolves.
