Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first goal after a six-game drought when Manchester United beat Brighton 2-0 this week. Ronaldo had gone six games without scoring but went on to help propel Manchester United to the top four of the English Premier League.

COVID-19 Postponements and Disruptions

EPL Gameweek 25 Results

In gameweek 25, Manchester United drew 1-1 with Southampton, Brighton beat Watford 2-0, and Everton beat Leeds United 3-0. Manchester City, on their part, beat Norwich City 4-0 as Wolves beat Tottenham 2-0. Newcastle beat Aston Villa 1-0 similar to Liverpool who beat Burnley 1-0. Leicester City and West Ham drew 2-2.

Dismal Performances from Giants

Gameweek 25 was sort of a slump for the big teams with Tottenham edged by Wolves, Liverpool barely edging Burnley, and Leicester drawing with West Ham. The giants performed dismally, to say the least, and that could be the tell-tale for their fatigue and the toll that international engagements took on the players. Even so, the league still has enough games for teams that are serious to correct their mistakes and position themselves on the top four.

Manchester City is currently top of the EPL table with 63 points, followed by Liverpool with 54 points, and Chelsea with 47 points.

Smaller Teams Up the Ante as Giants Slump
