English Premier League had a wonderful weekend after all games witnessed at least one goal. We look back at the action in two posts, covering Saturday and Sunday.

Burnley 1 – 2 Manchester City

Manchester City once again showed that they can win dirty by scoring a vital win against Burnley. The hosts took a shocking lead early on but couldn’t hold on to it after the Citizens went relentless with their pressure. Sergio Aguero scored a brace for the visitors helping them score back-to-back Premier League victories for the first time since September.


Leicester City 2 – 2 Middlesbrough

Funny how one season could change the fortunes! This time last year, the Foxes were almost unbeatable at home. But the Champions have been in such poor form that Middlesbrough felt very sad at dropping points in this encounter. It needed a late penalty by Islam to rescue a draw for Leicester. For Boro, this could be a hard pill to swallow but they would be buoyed by this performance.

Swansea 5 – 4 Crystal Palace

This was a pulsating match which swung both ways more than once. There were times when Palace would have thought they had the match in their bag but the Swans played their heart out and celebrated wild. The first ever win under new coach Bob Bradley helped them come out of the bottom.

Hull City 1 – 1 West Brom

The Baggies looked on course to claim a vital victory but Michael Dawson helped the hosts clinch a crucial point. Gareth McAuley scored in the 34th minute and it looked like it will stay that way but Dawson prodded the ball into the net with 18 minutes to go. The score remained that way and Tony Pulis’ men would be a tad disappointed at dropping points.

Liverpool 2 – 0 Sunderland

It’s a win that tasted sour for Jurgen Klopp who saw his talisman Philippe Countinho lost to injury. Sunderland and David Moyes came looking to frustrate the hosts and for most part of the evening, they did. Substitute Divock Origi opened the scoring after 75 minutes and David Milner added a late second. Klopp will still be counting the loss of Countinho than gain of three points.
