Goals: De Bruyne (5me), Gundogan (25me) for citizens
city remained in tie in pre Crystal Palace (0-0) and had been dethroned by Liverpool hit against Watford (2-0) a few minutes before. Well, Pep Guardiola’s men responded to the Reds in less than five minutes, with a cachou from Kevin De Bruyne on a beautiful shipment from Raheem Sterling (5me), to announce that the afternoon would pass without complications. The second blow came from İlkay Gündoğan, almost on the same line with a one-two KDB-Sterling, a cross behind the latter and the German’s final volley (25me). Not in eleven, but he entered the break to encourage the claret, Nightmare City by Maxwell Cornet had a chance before the flag was raised (59me) and the unsustainable Sterling almost did it again for Gabriel Jesús (69me), which he then hit on the stud and out of the frame (80me).

Chelsea 1-4 Brentford
But: Rudiger (48me) for the Blues // Janelt (50me & 60me), Eriksen (54me) and Wissa (87me) for bees
An earthquake occurred at Stamford Bridge in the day’s derby, and it was Thomas Tuchel’s team -undefeated since mid-January- that fell from the heights at the finish (1-4). Dominating in the first ten minutes, Brentford held on well in the first act, but David Raya lost his way with a shot from 30 meters signed by Antonio Rüdiger, with the help of the post (48me). the bees immediately went ahead and the boiling bryan mbeumo signed two offerings to put his own ahead: Vitaly Janelt thus dropped a sack into the nets of Édouard Mendy (50me), then Mr. Christian Eriksen doubled the bet – his third goal in seven days – after a counterattack after a local chance (54me). Mbeumo was also the source of the third pawn for the visitors, but it was Ivan Toney who sent Janelt to sign the double with a superb pin (60me). Kai Havertz (66me), which then chained the attempts right next to it (69me & 80me). Finally, while the London defense was shaking at the knees, Yoane Wissa -who entered a few seconds before- put the icing on the cake (87me). This promoter has decided something special.

Goals: Johnny (7me), A. Young (CSC, 36me) for wolves // Watkins (86meSP) for the villains
The chasm between eighth-ranked Wolverhampton (46 points before the game) and ninth-ranked Villa (36 points) was felt throughout the match.

Completely abandoned, the defense of villains almost let Fábio Silva double the lead in stride (8me), and the galleys continued since Lucas Digne, recovered from an injury, relapsed (13me). And it was his substitute, Ashley Young, who sank his team with a header into his own goal after a cross from Fernando Marçal (36me), while the visitors were back in the game.

Without consequence.
Brighton 0-0 Norwich City
Thirteenth before this match, Brighton failed to overcome the Red Lantern (and their fuchsia pink robes), who went on to lose seven in a row in all competitions. After a grotesque handball in the sixteen meters signed by Sam Byram, Neal Maupay had the opportunity to plant his tenth goal of the season, but the former Brestois sent a drop goal, half an hour into the game, almost everything.
