Premier League gameweek 25 roundup and other highlights:
- A double gameweek for Manchester City saw them move to 62 points and take the first spot in the table since 15th December
- City won their first match 3-1 against Arsenal before eventually defeating Everton away 2-0
- League leaders before the gameweek, Liverpool moved down a spot, after another uninspired performance by them saw them drop points yet again
- Chelsea came back in incredible fashion after their shambolic display last week with a 5-0 win against Huddersfield that saw them reclaim their lost 4th spot
- At the bottom, the usual suspects make up the relegation spots in Huddersfield, Cardiff City and Fulham
Reasserting their position as the frontrunners for this year’s premier league title, Manchester City propelled themselves to the pole position in the standings at the end of gameweek 25. In what was a double gameweek for them, Manchester City overcame the hurdle of two tough matches, defeating both Arsenal and Everton moving to 62 points, level with Liverpool who meanwhile put in another uninspiring performance to be held to yet another draw away to West Ham.
Coming back to Premier League gameweek 25 roundup, the gameweek 25 was one that held massive ramifications in the land of the premier league. While the week’s standout fixture between Manchester City and Arsenal saw Aguero put on a show, opening the scoring in just 40 seconds en route to his 10th premier league hattrick to down Arsenal 3-1, City went onto to build on the momentum gained, defeating Everton 2-0 with two injury, time goals that saw them for the first time since December 15th reclaim their lost first position.
Looking to consolidate their place at the top, Liverpool floundered for the second time in a row to drop points. An aberration of a performance that ended up being lucky, to add even a point in front of their names after an officiating howler allowed a massive offside decision on Milner to stand, letting Liverpool get away with a 1-1 draw against West Ham.
Liverpool’s recent downturn in form has been nothing but their own doing. They’ve crumbled massively under the pressure of the title race, conceding what was a 7 point lead on December 30 to find them now in second place albeit a game played less. From setting the pace at one point, they find themselves now chasing City in what promises to be a tightly contested and a feisty affair in the remaining set of fixtures.

Elsewhere, Chelsea put behind their mauling at the hands of Bournemouth with an exquisite performance that saw them trash relegation side Huddersfield 5-0 at Stamford Bridge. In what was a performance that was reminiscent of Chelsea, the London side was decisive in front of goal with Hazard doing everything that makes him the best player in the league, returning with 2 outstanding goals in a man of the match performance.
At the bottom, the usual suspects continue making up the spots with Huddersfield’s stagnant 11 points meaning they are all too likely to be set for the drop. Cardiff City and Fulham also continued languishing after yet another agonising set of results saw them remain trenched in the battle to stay up.
