With the completion of the official week 29 matches in the EPL, there are just nine games to the end of the season, albeit a team like Leicester City still have as much as three games in hand.
As expected in the run in for any season, there was unending drama across the centres that saw 22 goals scored with the only game that surprisingly failed to produce any goal; the game between Crystal Palace and Manchester City, a result that was preceded and followed by Liverpool's victory over Brighton and Arsenal respectively; the latter a week 27 rescheduled game, cutting the champions' lead to just one point.
Brentford, Leeds United and Watford all grabbed vital three points in their races against the drop as Manchester United also came out of their shell to defeat a consistently inconsistent Tottenham side, inspired by a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick that saw him officially become the highest goal scorer in the history of the sport with 807 goals and still counting.
