Stoke 2-2 Swansea

A draw between the mid-table outfits was an entertaining one as Swansea came back from two goals down at the Britannia Stadium which should be considered a mammoth task considering the atmosphere, A win for Stoke could’ve taken then to the 7th place.

Sunderland 0-0 West Brom

A stalemate at the stadium of light was not as dull as the scoreline suggests with the hosts creating tons of chances but failed to capitalize on them. West brom dodged a bullet.

West Ham 2-2 Crystal Palace

Liverpool 1-1 Tottenham

Fixture of the week! Liverpool got off to a flying start as they usually do against the big teams and put tons of pressure on Spurs.

Manchester United 1-0 Everton

An entertaining fixture capped off our Matchweek 32 with United scraping off a 1-0 win at Old Trafford against Everton. A top 4 finish is still a great possibility for Van Gaal’s men after an awful performance by Everton gift them the three points. A goal from Martial separated the two sides.
