Newcastle United 1-0 Chelsea [STREAM]
In 2015, Dwight Gayle‘s two goals for Crystal Palace in the last 10 minutes of a 3-3 draw with Liverpool crushed the Reds’ title hopes. His early Newcastle goal Sunday helped insure Liverpool’s Top Four hopes three years later, and the Magpies are dominating the Blues.
Southampton 0-0 Manchester City [STREAM]
If you’d hazard a guess which two of the 10 morning matches would be nil-nil, this would not be atop the list…
Swansea City 1-2 Stoke City [STREAM]
Andy King made a dent on the scoreboard with his goal in the first quarter hour, but Badou Ndiaye leveled the scoring as one of the few bright spots of Stoke’s relegation campaign may be bidding goodbye with a goal. Peter Crouch has it 2-1 at the break.
Liverpool 2-0 Brighton and Hove Albion [STREAM]
Mohamed Salah has set a new Premier League record with his 32nd marker of the league season. Dejan Lovren has more or less grabbed the permanent marker to write Liverpool’s name in next season’s Champions League.
Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Leicester City [STREAM]
Riyad Mahrez cued up Jamie Vardy for an early goal, but Spurs answered in no time through that man Harry Kane. Mahrez scored a goal of his own as two teams with nothing to lose are promising more entertainment at Wembley.
