Soccer-City Rout Fulham 4-0, Burnley Relegated On Pivotal Day In Premier League

LONDON: Manchester City’s 4-0 thrashing of Fulham on Saturday gave them a two-point lead over Arsenal at the top of the Premier League standings with one week to go. This was another significant step toward an unprecedented fourth consecutive Premier League title.

Following a 2-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur, Burnley was demoted to the Championship, while Luton Town moved one step closer to joining them following a 3-1 loss to West Ham United.

After drawing 1-1 with Brighton & Hove Albion, Brentford won 2-1 at Bournemouth thanks to four minutes of extra time; Crystal Palace triumphed 3-1 at Wolverhampton; and Everton defeated demoted Sheffield United 1-0 to move one step closer to a European place.

For City, it was their sixth straight league victory, with goals from Josko Gvardiol twice and goals from Phil Foden and Julian Alvarez each.

Arsenal has 83 points from 36 games, while Pep Guardiola’s team has 85 from 36. Arsenal may take back the top spot if they defeat Manchester United on Sunday, but City, who host Tottenham Hotspur on Tuesday, is now just two victories away from being the first team to win the Premier League four times in a row.

Guardiola remarked, “The great players enjoy playing under extreme pressure.” “These players have demonstrated their ability in recent years, and we are once more nearing the end.”

As we stated a few weeks ago after Arsenal’s loss to Aston Villa, our goal is to control the remaining games and face West Ham at home in the season finale on May 19 with our fate in hand.

“The great players enjoy playing under extreme pressure,” said Guardiola. “These players have demonstrated their ability in recent years, and we are once more nearing the end.”

Our objective is to manage the remaining games and play West Ham at home in the season finale on May 19 with our fate in hand, as we declared a few weeks ago following Arsenal’s defeat against Aston Villa.

Arsenal faces increased pressure as they prepare to visit Old Trafford as City extended their league unbeaten streak to 21 games.


With their victory, Tottenham maintained their chances of making it into the Champions League for the next season, and Burnley, in 19th place, became the second team to be relegated. With one game remaining, they are five points from safety.

Shortly after the half-hour mark, Pedro Porro equalized after Burnley’s goal by Jacob Bruun Larsen. In the 82nd minute, Micky van de Ven scored the game-winning goal.

The BBC was informed by Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou that “we were dominant enough.” Although we should have won more easily, the fact that we did is what matters most.

Newcastle kept up their pursuit of a spot in the Europa or Conference League for the upcoming season. With three games remaining, they are three points clear of Manchester United and Chelsea, who are currently in sixth position in the standings.

In their final home game, Newcastle drew after a goal from Sean Longstaff in first-half stoppage time, after Brighton had taken the lead through defender Joel Veltman.

“We knew it would be a tough game because Brighton is always a tough opponent,” Howe remarked. “We may not have achieved the necessary heights to win, but I believed we would be the ones to do so.”

West Ham defeated struggling Luton Town thanks to a strong second half display, giving outgoing manager David Moyes something to cheer about in his final home game as Hammers manager and sending Luton closer to relegation.

The Hatters took the lead in the sixth minute thanks to a goal from Albert Sambi Lokonga, but James Ward-Prowse’s header for West Ham tied the score in the 54th, and goals from Tomas Soucek and substitute George Earthy sealed the victory for the Hammers.

Coming on and scoring is the ideal sensation, according to Earthy. “Having had season tickets here since I was six years old, I can honestly say that these are the greatest fans on the planet.”It seemed like I was dreaming of scoring, words cannot express. Even now, it doesn’t feel genuine.

With 26 points, Luton is currently in 18th place. If Chelsea at home helps 17th-place Nottingham Forest gain any ground, they might be relegated later on Saturday.

A barrage of goals in the dying minutes gave Brentford the victory. Bryan Mbeumo’s effort from the edge of the penalty area gave them the lead in the 86th minute.

Three minutes later, Dominic Solanke gave the home team an equalizer, but Yoane Wissa gave the visitors the lead again to move Brentford up to sixteenth place. Bournemouth dropped down to eleventh.

Sheffield United’s unfavorable Premier League record was extended as Everton defeated them, with Abdoulaye Doucoure scoring the game’s inaugural goal.

The 101st goal conceded by bottom-of-the-table United this season came from a header from Doucoure. Everton is ranked fifteenth.

Crystal Palace moved over Wolves into 12th place in the table with their fifth win in six league games thanks to goals from Michael Olise, Jean-Philippe Mateta, and Eberechi Eze.
