The title battle looks likely to head to a photo-finish as the last two gameweeks approach.
Liverpool maintained their chase of the table-toppers Manchester City with a thrilling 5-0 win over relegated Huddersfield. However, Manchester City continued their fine run with another gritty win away from home against Burnley. Arsenal succumbed to a fighting Leicester due to an early red card for Ainsley Maitland-Niles while West Ham pulled off the surprise of the week by beating Tottenham at their new stadium. The match of the week between Manchester United and Chelsea ended in a stalemate after Marcos Alonso cancelled out Juan Mata’s opener for the Red Devils.

A highly rewarding week for the team. Captain Andrew Robertson led the pack with 28 points while Callum Wilson got 16 points.

Aymeric Laporte and Aaron-Wan Bissaka got 9 points each for their clean sheets while Aguero got 9 points for his goal for Manchester City against Burnley.

Gameweek 37 Transfers
Nathan Redmond is a potential transfer candidate. The Southampton winger, however, has looked sharp for the last few games and can fetch points, despite playing for a relegation-threatened side. He can be replaced by the likes of Gerard Deulofeu or James McArthur.
However, the team looks sharp enough for the next week and no transfers are made.
