Massive wins on Saturday for City, Palace and Huddersfield

On Saturday, there were massive Premier League wins for Manchester City, Crystal Palace and Huddersfield.

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City recorded a highly creditable 3-1 win at in-form Tottenham on Saturday evening. Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring after 22 minutes before Ilkay Gundogan doubled the Citizens lead from the penalty spot.

Spurs looked to be back in the game just before the break, as Aymeric Laporte’s attempted clearance hit Christian Eriksen and went past Ederson. Tottenham looked slightly better in the second half, but City still enjoyed the more clear-cut chances.

The Citizens took one of those chances with 18 minutes left on the clock, as Raheem Sterling scored from close-range. The win means that City can claim the title on Sunday if Manchester United loses to rock bottom West Brom at Old Trafford.

At the other end of the table, Crystal Palace recorded a 3-2 win over fellow strugglers Brighton at Selhurst Park.

The home side established a two-goal lead in the first 14 minutes. Wilfried Zaha opened the scoring from a few yards out before James Tomkins smashed an effort home from inside the area.

Brighton were back in the game on 18 minutes, as former Eagles forward Glenn Murray volleyed home. Palace regained their two-goal lead on 24 minutes, as Zaha headed home his second of the game.

Brighton winger Jose Izquierdo slotted home to reduce the deficit to complete a manic 32 minutes of action. The goal turned out to be the last of the game.

The victory means that Palace moved six points clear of the relegation zone. Meanwhile, Brighton are just one point better off in the race for survival.

Another team who aided their chances of top-flight survival are Huddersfield, who snatched a 1-0 victory over Watford at the John Smiths Stadium.

The game was a slight non-event until stoppage-time when winger Tom Ince fired home from close-range to send the home side crazy. The victory moved the Terriers seven points clear of the drop zone.
