2021-22 Premier League: Week 16 Roundup

Manchester City continue to sit atop of the Premier League following a dramatic matchweek as the top three all overcame tough tests.

Man City remain top for a second consecutive matchweek after Joao Moutinho’s accidental handball enabled Raheem Sterling to fire in a 66th minute penalty winner, which proved enough to defeat ten-men Wolves after Raul Jimenez was red carded for two separate incidents.

Liverpool endured that Steven Gerrard’s return to Anfield as a manager ended in disappointment as Mohamed Salah struck a 67th minute winning penalty against Aston Villa, having won the spot-kick after being tussled to the ground by Tyrone Mings as Jurgen Klopp’s Reds stay second.

Chelsea remain two points behind in third after a second-half penalty brace from Jorginho proved enough in a comeback 3-2 home win over Leeds, having initially conceded first to a Raphinha penalty as Mason Mount and Joe Gelhardt also scored for both teams respectively.

Down in the relegation zone, Norwich remain rock-bottom after losing 1-0 at home to Manchester United as Cristiano Ronaldo shrugged off a foul from Max Aarons to score a 75th minute penalty winner.

Newcastle remain second-bottom after losing 4-0 away at Leicester as Youri Tielemans scored twice, either side of goals from Patson Daka and James Maddison.

Burnley again sit third-bottom after holding fourth-placed West Ham to a goalless draw at Turf Moor.

Elsewhere, goals from Alexandre Lacazette, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel lifted Arsenal to sixth with a 3-0 home win over Southampton.

Bryan Mbeumo fired in a 96th minute penalty winner as Brentford came from behind to defeat Watford 2-1 in Friday Night Football as Pontus Jansson cancelled out Emmanuel Dennis’ headed opener.

Conor Gallagher struck twice as Crystal Palace defeated Everton to end their three-match losing streak.

Finally, Brighton’s clash against Tottenham was postponed due to a Coronavirus outbreak amongst the Spurs squad, which means that the North London club now have two games in hand.
