Gameweek 36 of the EPL started with a 1-1 draw between Liverpool and Spurs. Brighton then went on to humiliate Manchester United 4-0 and Chelsea drew Wolves 2-2. Aston Villa beat Burnley 3-1 as Brentford beat Southampton 3-0. In other EPL Gameweek 36 Results, Arsenal beat Leeds 2-1, a sign that they are resurfacing.
Arsenal seem to be on an upward trend despite starting the season at a terrible low. It seems that Mikel Arteta’s strategies were geared for the long-term and they are now starting to work. Arsenal’s two goals were scored by Eddie Nketiah. Arsenal have secured a spot at the top four even as Tottenham are hot on their heels. Unlike Artetas’, Conte’s strategies are instant and may just propel Spurs to unseat Arsenal at number 4 in the EPL table.
EPL Gameweek 36 Results: Leicester Still Slumping
In other EPL Gameweek 36 Results, Everton beat Leicester 2-1 as Manchester City hammered Newcastle 5-0. Unlike City, Leicester lack the consistency season-to-season to launch and sustain successful EPL campaigns. It seems that Leicester are easily thrown off, especially if they lack leadership on and off the pitch. A good example is that since Vardy was demoted from captaincy at the club, Leicester have been on a nosedive. The club is heavily reliant on good scorers instead of building capacity throughout the pitch.
A Gruesome Season for Norwich
West Ham beat Norwich 4-0, further worsening Norwich’s chances of salvaging themselves from relegation. Norwich has done quite poorly in what has been a gruesome season and are looking to be relegated. With other good clubs in the second-tier league like Brentford was, teams in the EPL really need to up the ante or be replaced by better upcoming teams.
Liverpool and Manchester City Still on a High
In other EPL Gameweek 36 results, Liverpool beat Aston Villa 2-1 as Man City beat Wolves 5-1. In comparison, City are in a much better position score-wise as they don’t have any UEFA Champions League final to train for. As such, unlike Liverpool, City only have the EPL to worry about while Liverpool are torn between training as adequately as possible for the UCL Final and still trying to upend City’s lead in the EPL.
A Well-Rounded Chelsea
Chelsea beat Leeds 3-0 in Gameweek 36 further compounding how well the team has become organized. Chelsea have managed to stay well-rounded despite their early UCL exit and have kept on gaining traction in the Premier League. Chelsea are definitely going to end up in the top four and Tuchel will be back next season in the Champions League to make things right.
EPL Gameweek 36 Results: Leicester beat Norwich
In other results, Leicester beat Norwich 3-0 as Everton drew Watford 0-0. Leicester are not a bad team, similar to Everton, and they both can do very well if they get everything together i.e. their leadership on and off the pitch, good management and strategies, and a hunger for winning.
Tottenham beat Arsenal
Tottenham beat Arsenal 3-0 in EPL Gameweek 36 and as we have pointed out, are hot on the heels of Arsenal for the number four slot in the EPL standings. With just two gameweeks left, position four is for any of the two, especially the team that really makes a strong push in the coming weeks.
The EPL table more or less reads like an album list with teams still maintaining their positions as the league nears a close.
