Leicester Sleep At Home while Tottenham was Shocked Away
The premier league week 27 resume as Leicester City take on Crystal Palace at home and Tottenham Hotspur traveled down to Burnley. The results of both games didn't went as expected to football lovers out their, most especially, to those who stake their money on football betting. It will be very hard any day for anyone to believe that Crystal Palace can whitewash Leicester City at home while same thing also goes to Tottenham Hotspur away from home even when the battle for the top 4 is now getting hotter. Leicester vs Crystal Palace (1-4) Source Honestly, Leicester City will never see this big defeat coming one day but to me, I'm not surprise to see the scoreline because the moment the League is coming to an end, that is when the league started producing crazy and unbelievable results. It is due to the fact that every team will be striving to escape the relegation flood and going back to the league table, it was just 5 points separating the two teams before the match. Leicester were on 32 points while Crystal Palace were on 27 points, a win for Crystal Palace will reduced the margin to 2 points which they actually did but in a fashion way. This is the most dangerous time of the league to play any team from the bottom position, the win for Crystal Palace actually relieved their pressure on relegation. It was Batshuayi the man on loan from Chelsea that gave Palace the lead in 40 minutes of the game before half time, Leicester City had the chance to lead in the early minutes of the game when Harvey Barnes delivered a cross into the box which Vardy headed wide off the post. Leicester continue to dominate the match even after the break and that yield a positive result in 64 minutes when Evans canceled out Batshuayi goal after Fuchs long throw found Barnes, who sent the ball towards Crystal Palace goal before Evans finish it well and that brings the game back to normal but actually it wasn't enough to stop Crystal Palace as Zaha took the show. Zaha restored the lead in 70 minutes to make it will-2-1 lead for Crystal Palace, the Ivory Coast man was unmarked as McArthur drop a soft shot for him to strike past Schmeichel. Milivojevic also got himself on the scoring sheet in the 81 minutes when he scored from a penalty spot, after Evans has successfully brought down Schlupp in the box before Zaha completed his brace in some seconds to the final whistle when Leicester were so much attacking and substituted Ayew pass punished them on the counter attack as he found Zaha who converted it into goal. Leicester City has now lost their last four matches at home in the league and that has come in the last 19 years while Zaha has went on to score in 3 matches on a row in the league for the first time. Crystal Palace will take on Manchester United in the mid weet in the league and a win for them may just see them overtaking Leicester on the log if Leicester fail to deal with Brighton. ================================================================================================================================================ Burnley vs Tottenham (2-1) Source It was a shocking and hard to believe result for many football lovers out there as Burnley shocked Tottenham Hotspur and also dent their hope for the title race. Tottenham has been so wonderful in the league even when the team loose their hit-man to injury, Son has been sensational with the way he carry the team both in the league and champions league. Tottenham who occupied the third position with 60 points before the game is really hoping to bridge the gap between them and the league leaders that have 65 points respectively despite Liverpool still having one game at hand. While Burnley on the other side is looking for a way to cement itself in the league come next season, Burnley was having 27 points before the match and and are now on 30 points after winning the match. Tottenham look dangerous in front of goal and continue to dominate the match with lot of attempt while Burley stick to their play and organized themselves very well at the back to avoid any trouble from Tottenham and the first half resulted into goalless draw as both teams failed to find the back of the net. Wood finally break the silent for the host in 57 minutes when he headed in a goal from Dwight McNeil's corner kick to put Burnley ahead but Tottenham responded well through Harry Kane who is just coming from an injury in 65 minutes to cancel out Wood goal and bring the match to 1-1, Tottenham continue to press high and looking for a winning goal but it was Burnley who strike another goal in the late minutes of the encounter through Barnes from Gudmundsson's cross. Burnley continue to defend well to make sure Tottenham didn't equalize and the whole thing went as planned for them. Tottenham now will be facing Chelsea in the mid week and will be hoping to bounce back against a side who is not really doing as expected in the league while Burnley will be hoping to continue their good form against Newcastle United.
