winner at Fulham, Manchester City ejects Arsenal from the chair of leader, Man United brings down Aston Villa

The moment so dreaded by Arsenal supporters has arrived: the Gunners are no longer leaders of the Premier League. Blame it on Manchester City’s 7th consecutive victory, this Sunday, on the lawn of Fulham (2-1), as part of the 34th day of the English championship. This may be the other turning point of the 2022/2023 PL season, 4 days after the Cityzens’ demonstration against Arsenal (4-1), at the Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola’s men, deprived of De Bruyne but with Alvarez and Mahrez at kick-off, quickly set the tone at Craven Cottage.

Haaland scored his 34th goal of the season in the league (the 50th in total) by converting a penalty obtained by Alvarez (4th). If Vinícius equalized for the Cottagers with a fine volley (15th), the Argentine world champion from City sent a lobbing missile to Leno to restore the advantage to his team (37th), after the German repelled a attempt by Grealish on his bar (27th). Returning from the locker room, the Sky Blues pushed to make the break, but Leno kept his team alive, first against Haaland (48th), then Alvarez (52nd).

Whatever, here is Man City again in the Premier League leader’s chair, just to better launch an end to the season which could well be historic. Undefeated since February 18, Aston Villa has relapsed against the other Manchester, United (0-1). After a strike from Casemiro failed on the Villans crossbar (29th), Fernandes took advantage of a ball repelled by Martinez on a shot from Rashford to offer a precious victory to the Red Devils in the race for the Top 4. Villa will have pushed at Old Trafford late in the game, but United held on.
