Dendoncker scored an own goal in the 15th minute to give City the lead. Coady equalised for Wolves in the 61st minute. It looked like Wolves would be able to hold on for the point but City shifted gears with 2 goals from Jesus and 1 from Mahrez in the final 10 minutes. City go 14 points clear at the top of the table while Wolves remain 12th in the table. 

Burnley 1 vs. 1 Leicester

Vydra scored in the 4th minute to give Burnley a surprise lead. Iheanacho equalised for Leicester in the 34th minute with a brilliant goal. Neither team could grab the winner though as they settled for a draw. Burnley remain 15th in the table while Leicester remain 3rd but only 3 points ahead of 4th placed Chelsea. 

Sheffield United 1 vs. 0 Aston Villa

McGoldrick grabbed the only goal of the game in the 30th minute for Sheffield United. Jagielka was sent off for the home team in the 57th minute but they managed to hold on with 10 players. Sheffield United manage their 4th win of the season as they remain bottom and 12 points from safety. Villa remain 9th with the loss with 2 game still in hand. 

Crystal Palace 0 vs. 0 Man United

A goalless draw with Palace getting the best chance to win the game late on. Palace remain 13th in the table while United remain 2nd, 5 points ahead of 5th. 

West Brom 0 vs. 1 Everton

Fulham 0 vs. 1 Tottenham

Adarabioyo scored an own goal in the 19th minute to give Spurs the lead but Fulham dominated the game from then on out. They had the ball in the net through Maja in the 2nd half but it was ruled out by VAR because it hit Lemina’s hand when the hand was stuck to his body. Lemina could literally not put his hand anywhere else. Tottenham rode their luck and got 3 points. Spurs remain 8th with the win a point behind 7th placed Liverpool now with a game in hand. Fulham remain 18th in the table 3 points from safety. 

Copa Del Rey Semi-Final 2nd Leg

Barcelona came from 2-0 down in the 1st leg to beat Sevilla 3-0 at the Camp Nou to reach the final of the Copa Del Rey. Joining them there will be Bilbao who beat Levante 1-2. Barcelona are having a solid 2021 and their good form continues even with all the internal drama at the club. This should be a fun final.

Juventus beat Spezia 3-0, Napoli drew with Sassuolo 3-3, Milan drew with Udinese 1-1, Atalanta beat Crotone 5-1, Roma beat Fiorentina 1-2, and Inter beat Parma 1-2. Inter extend their gap at the top of the table to 6 points. Milan remain 2nd 4 points ahead of Juventus while Atalanta make up the top four. Roma, Napoli, and Lazio sit 5th, 6th, and 7th. Inter’s consistency getting them rewards while Milan’s poor form continues.

Dortmund beat Monchengladbach 0-1, while Leipzig beat Wolfsburg 2-0 to reach the semif finals. Holstein Kiel are the other semi-finalists along with whoever goes through from Werder Bremen and Regensburg. 

Ligue MW 28

Lyon beat Rennes 1-0, Lille beat Marseille 2-0, Strasbourg beat Monaco 1-0, and PSG beat Bordeaux 0-1. Lille remain 2 points clear at the top of the table with PSG behind them. Lyon sit a point behind PSG in 3rd while Monaco are now 4 points behind Lyon in 4th. A 3 horse race for now with Monaco hitting a few hurdles.
