We present you new episode of The Goal Post. Our host, Dana White will go through the main matches of week 27. It was an interesting weekend for the Premier League and many things have changed.
Chelsea 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur
It was interesting to see Jose Mourinho back at Stamford Bridge. Jose was the coach of Chelsea for many hours. First, he signed for Chelsea back in 2004. He was sacked and after two years, he was back in action. Jose won many trophies as the coach of Chelsea.
As of now, Mourinho is the coach of Tottenham. North London teams needed a good coach after a failing season starts from Mauricio Pochetino. Keep in mind that Chelsea is trained by the former legendary player, Frankie Lampard
Frankie decided to start with the French striker. Giroud played from the start and could even score the goal in the first half. In the 15th minute, the French striker got the ball and scored a beautiful goal. He gave a lead to Chelsea and the team won the first half.
In the second half, we saw two goals. Both teams have scored and in the end, Chelsea took important three points. In 48th minutes, Marcos Alonso gave a two-goal lead to Chelsea. Tottenham could score a goal on 89th minute. After the cross, Rudiger has scored the own goal. In the last few minutes, Tottenham could not impact a lot and nothing changed. Chelsea has 44 points and the team is four points clear to Tottenham Hostpur. It was important to match for a Champions League competition.
Leicester 0-1 Manchester City
Before the match, there was the only four-point difference between the teams. The city and Leicester are trying to take the second spot in Premier League. No one believes in winning the championship because Liverpool is just invincible. Liverpool is even aiming for Arsenal’s record of the Premier League. So, the City and Leicester fight for the second spot.
As always, Manchester City was dominating the midfield. Pep Guardiola decided to play with Mahrez and Bernardo on the wings. Aguero was the main striker and he was getting crosses from Bernardo and Mahrez. The first half was very boring as none of the team could impact much. Everything changed in the second half.
On 62nd minute, Manchester City got the right to score from the penalty spot. Sergio Aguero took the ball and decided to score the penalty. Unfortunately for the City fans, Team could not convert the penalty into the goal. Pep Guardiola decided to change Sergio and give chance to Gabriel Jesus. The Brazilian striker scored a goal in three minutes after stepping on the pitch. On the 80th minute, Gabi Jesus gave a lead to Manchester City. Pep Guardiola was satisfied and decided to control the match. In the last ten minutes, nothing has changed as Pep’s team was controlling the ball.
As of now, Manchester City has 57 points after 27 rounds. It’s impossible to believe that City could get only 57 points in 27 matches, specifically when we remember the matches from the previous season. Manchester City was flying last season and now the team can’t show good performances.
Leicester has only 50 points currently but the team coach hoped for more wins. Leicester coach noted that there is still hope for the second spot of the Premier League.

Arsenal had a break for a few days and the team went to Dubai. Arsenal has a training facility in Dubai, so players were training there. Arteta said that four days in Dubai should impact positively players and the team in general. As it seems, Arsenal’s coach right because the team has won the second match in a row after returning from Dubai.
Arsenal won the first match against Newcastle. So that team could score four goals and have not conceded any. London Gunners had a very interesting match against Liverpool-based team Everton.
Before the match, Arteta hailed Carlo Ancelotti and said that it’s an honor to play against him. Everton’s coach Carlo believes in Everton players and wants to fight for the Europa League spot. As you may know, there is a minimum of 8 clubs in the Premier League that have a chance for the Europa League spot. As of now, Manchester United is in the fifth position with 41 points. Arsenal has only 37 and Everton has 36 points. 11 rounds left in Premier League and teams still have a chance to outperform Manchester United.
Everton scored the goal in the first minute. Calvert-Lewin scored a goal and gave a lead to Everton. Arsenal could score the goal on the 27th minute. Nketiah scored the goal and tied the match. In just a few minutes, Arsenal’s players have turned the table around. On 33rd minute, Aubameyang scored a beautiful goal and gave lead to Gunners. Arsenal could win the first half but Everton’s players have scored the second goal for the team and tied the score. The team went on the break after the second goal of Everton.
On the first minute of the second half, Aubameyang scored another goal. Striker gave a lead to Arsenal and finally, this goal decided the fate of the match. Arsenal took important three points against the main competitor.
