This Premier League weekend was as interesting as ever, full of controversies, did you see Mahrez’s two touch penalty? full of drama, full of great goals, oh what a sumptous header from Wanyama past the league’s best goalkeeper, De Gea.
The race for a top 4 slot got hotter, Liverpool thrashed West Ham, Arsenal dealt with Stoke City and Man City got a slim 2-1 Victory over Former champions Leicester City and Pep Guardiola will tell you that, A WIN IS A WIN
Chelsea confirmed that the Premier League title would return to London for the second time in 3 years and that in itself is another inspiring story, 10th in the 2015/2016 Premier league season, 1st in the 2016/2017 Premier league season.
Tottenham bid their home of over 100 years goodbye and they did that in a spectacular fashion beating Manchester United 2-1 at white Hart lane.
Hull City were relegated this Premier League weekend as they lost 4-0 to a Zaha and Benteke inspired Crystal Palace
Who was the Premier league player of the weekend?
Here are the nominees:
Michy Batshuayi. Chelsea. 1 goal
Alexis Sanchez. Arsenal . 1 goal 1 assist
Coutinho. Liverpool. 2 goals, 1 assist
Brazilian playmaker Coutinho was in fine form for Liverpool, putting up a dazzling performance, setting up sturridge for Liverpool’s opener and scoring two goals himself.
Michy Batshuayi came on as a substitute and scored the lone goal of the match to give the blues all 3 points and more significantly, the Premier league title.
Alexis Sanchez was imperial once again for Arsenal as they continued their top four Chase, he set up Ozil for Arsenal’s second goal against Stoke City and he scored the third himself whilst he appeared to be injured, remarkable.
Sanchez has now recorded double digits in terms of goals and assists in the Premier league this Season, 21 goals and 10 assists.
All nominees are worthy contenders but MICHY BATSHUAYI just about nicks this one because of the significance of the goal he scored, the Belgian was brought on as a substitute and having found a starting shirt difficult, that goal makes his FOOTYTOOL’s Premier league player of the weekend.
