Saturday Football Review: EPL Weekend Full of Goals

This Saturday’s Premier League match features six teams’ determination, with some aiming to go up in the relegation zone and others aiming to remain in the top spot. Teams such as Newcastle United, Bournemouth, and Tottenham were able to secure a win, while West Ham, Everton, and Luton failed to do the same. Every team was determined to climb to the top of the table in the Premier League, but still, some teams had to settle for draws in the end. 

Newcastle United 4-3 West Ham 

A dramatic comeback was made by Newcastle, 4-3, as they faced West Ham in the early Saturday match. Although West Ham had a good start, scoring three unanswered goals following an Isak penalty, Newcastle gave an incredible last-winning game with just 13 minutes remaining. Harvey Barnes served as the key player in the team’s stunning win with a cool finish. They proved that despite struggling with a string of injuries, they are capable of moving into 8th place. This victory will pave the way for Newcastle’s European aspirations, as a defeat would have significantly hampered their chances. 

Bournemouth 2–1 Everton

In a dramatic turn of events, Bournemouth was able to close the game and secure a win in a last-minute victory against Everton. The match was full of intensity with a strong defense, with both teams unable to make a score. Seamus Coleman scored his own goal, which meant Everton had to give up their chance to score and settle for a draw. Although they had scored a late equalizer, this was also due to an error made by Bournemouth’s goalkeeper. This loss deepens Everton’s relegation woes as they remain just three points clear of the drop zone. Everton’s heartbreaking 2-1 defeat led to Bournemouth’s victory. 

Chelsea 2–2 Burnley

In a game hosted by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the match ended with a 2-2 draw. Even though Chelsea started the game strong, they couldn’t continue it until the end. In spite of having much of the ball, the only penalty by Cole Palmer was their only success in the first half. Burnley’s Assignon received a somewhat contentious red card, but Cullen scored for Burnley shortly afterwards and leveled the playing field in the second half. Both teams showcased a strong determination to win, but neither succeeded.

Nottingham Forest 1–1 Crystal Palace

A Saturday afternoon match features Nottingham Forest as they fight back against Crystal Palace and secure a crucial 1-1 draw in the Premier League. Nottingham Forest were able to lift their team out of the relegation zone with only eight games remaining in the season. Palace did very well in the early minutes of the game, but Forest managed to catch up as their team captain Chris Wood’s second-half header equalized the score and ignited hope for the team. While both teams weren’t able to secure a victory, they both showed exciting games and showed their ability to go up on the spot. 

Sheffield Utd 3–3 Fulham

In a match that happened this Saturday, Sheffield failed to go out of the relegation zone as Fulham made a dramatic comeback. During the first half, Sheffield scored goals, leaving Fulham behind, but despite Fulham being down by two goals in the late second half, they were able to claw their way back for a 3-3 draw. The goal for an equalizer came miraculously from a direct freekick presented by Rodrigo Muniz in injury time. Muniz is on a hot streak, and he has scored goals in eight out of his last eight matches. This game resulted in Sheffield remaining at the bottom of the Premier League. 

Tottenham 2–1 Luton

Tottenham Hotspur came a step closer to a precious final Champions League spot in the Premier League thanks to the late-winning strike by their superstar Son Heung-Min. There was a close encounter against relegation strugglers Luton Town that brought a surprise goal for Luton at the beginning of the match. However, shortly before halftime, Tottenham answered with a deflected shot to tie the score (1-1). The victory was secured when Son scored in the 86th minute, his 15th goal of the season, crossing the goal line. With this win, Tottenham moved up to fourth place, over current Aston Villa, and now has a chance of moving on to the next round of the Champions League.
