Premier League: Standout results

Matchweek 25 of the 2023/24 Premier League season is over, and there were some particularly standout results. Here, we look at 5 results that caught the most attention.

The 2023/24 Premier League football season is gradually reaching its conclusion, and in Matchweek 25, we are now even closer to finding out what the ultimate fates are for each of the 20 teams in England’s top flight.

Not only is the current campaign entering its final couple of months, but the battle for the title, the battle for European qualification and the battle just to remain in the Premier League are all as heated and competitive as ever. The latest round of results have certainly seen some edge closer to achieving their goals, whilst others have now stalled.

As of the time of writing, there are as many as three teams fighting it out for the highly coveted Premier League title, and they, of course, are league leaders Liverpool (57 points), Arsenal in second place with 53 points to their name, and reigning Champions Manchester City in third with 53 points. However, they have a game in hand. City play Brentford at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening, where a win would see them climb above Arsenal into second place and be within just 1 point of Jurgen Klopp’s team at the top.

There were plenty of important results from the most recent round of matches, but there were some in particular that stood out. Here, we shall go through 5 results that particularly stood out from the last few days. We start with Liverpool and their emphatic win away from home against Thomas Frank’s Brentford team.

Brentford 1 – 4 Liverpool

We start with title challengers Liverpool taking on Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds knew that not only would a win maintain their spot at the top, it would extend their gap on reigning Champions Manchester City.

Liverpool got a 4 – 1 win against the Bees thanks to goals from Darwin Nunez (35’), Alexis Mac Allister (55’), Mohamed Salah (68’) and Cody Gakpo (86’). Ivan Toney got the only goal for the home side late on in the match.

This very emphatic victory for the Reds has seen them stay at the top with a new total of 57 points to their name. They did successfully extend their gap on City to 4 points, however their gap at the top remained at two points after Arsenal’s win against Burnley on the same day.

As for Brentford, they remain in 14th place with 25 points from 24 matches – they do have a game in hand, which they play against City on Wednesday.

Burnley 0 – 5 Arsenal

The aforementioned Arsenal are up next, and they headed to Turf Moor in Lancashire in order to face Vincent Kompany’s newly promoted Burnley side on Saturday afternoon. They knew that a win would see them climb into second place ahead of City should that result go their way.

In the end, it was an even more emphatic win for the Gunners, who Mikel Arteta’s side were able to beat very comfortably 5 – 0. Martin Odegaard got the scoring off to an early start within the first five minutes, before Bukayo Saka (41’ – Penalty, 47’), Leandro Trossard (66’) and Kai Havertz (78’) added to the score line throughout the remainder of the match.

The result leaves Arsenal in second place with 55 points – 2 behind league leaders Liverpool and 2 points ahead of reigning Premier League Champions Manchester City.

This leaves Burnley still in 19th place with 13 points. They are 7 points adrift of safety and are not bottom of the league thanks to goal difference.

Fulham 1 – 2 Aston Villa

The race for European, specifically UEFA Champions League football, is hotly contested. The top three look like they might remain as the same three clubs with final positions unknown, however the fourth and (currently) final Champions League qualification spot is being fought for between Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

The battle is heated, but if the performance of English teams in Europe is good enough, 5th place may become an extra spot for qualification for the 2024/25 UEFA Champions League.

Aston Villa knew that they would rise back into fourth place with a win, and if Spurs dropped points or indeed lost against their West Midlands rivals Wolves at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

In the end, it was a crucial 2 – 1 win for Unai Emery’s Villa at Craven Cottage against a Fulham side led by their Portuguese Head Coach, Marco Silva. Ollie Watkins got his brace with one goal either side of half time (23’, 56’), whilst Fulham got a goal back thanks to Rodrigo Muniz with less than half an hour of the game remaining (63’).

This result, together with Spurs’ home defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers, means that Aston Villa climb back into the top four with a two-point gap separating the Villans from their North London counterparts in fifth place. They are also 5 clear of Erik Ten Hag’s Manchester United, even after their win against Luton Town.

As for Fulham, they remain in 12th place with 29 points. The Cottagers are now 6 points adrift of Wolves in 11th place.

Sheffield United 0 – 5 Brighton

This was another match involving a team battling against relegation and a team currently looking up the table, specifically for European qualification for the 2024/25 season. Brighton knew that a win would see them climb into 7th place if Newcastle failed to beat Bournemouth at St. James’s Park.

Ultimately, it was a dominant and emphatic 5 – 0 victory at Bramall Lane for Roberto De Zerbi’s Seagulls against bottom-of-the-league Sheffield United, who did go down to ten men in the first twenty minutes of the game. Facundo Buonanotte (20’), Danny Welbeck (24’), an own goal from Blades defender Jack Robinson (75’) and goals from Simon Adingra (78’, 85’) secured the win.

This, following Eddie Howe’s Newcastle United’s 2 – 2 draw with Andoni Iraola’s AFC Bournemouth, meant that Brighton are now back up into 7th place, with  38 points from their 25 matches played to date. As for Sheffield United, they remain at the bottom of the league on goal difference with just 13 points to their name.

Nottingham Forest 2 – 0 West Ham United

Finally, we will look at West Ham’s trip to the historic City Ground to face Nuno Espirito Santo’s Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon. The hosts, Forest, knew they could increase the gap between themselves and the relegation zone with a win against the Hammers. David Moyes’ side knew they put pressure on those above them as they continue challenging for European football this season.

In the end, it was to be an all-important 2 – 0 victory for Nottingham Forest against West Ham, who scored through goals from Taiwo Awoniyi (45+5’) and ex-Chelsea player Callum Hudson-Odoi (90+4’). Both goals came in stoppage time in each of the two halves.

Attention is now on the next round of 2023/24 Premier League action later this week, with excitement and anticipation building as we get closer to the season’s conclusion.
