Nobby’s week 27 in review

B0D2C821-3963-4A82-95EA-4017BAF2E0E0A few FA Cup replays kicked off the week, and if you had some second string Huddersfield, Spurs and particularly Swansea players in your line ups, then you lucked out. Swansea set a record score as Nathan Dyer and Tammy Abraham scored twice in their 8 goal haul.

Tues 6th Feb – FA Cup
Birmingham 1-4 Huddersfield
Swansea 8-1 Swansea

Wed 7th Feb – FA Cup
Tottenham 2-0 Newport

Then over the EPL weekend Spurs beat Arsenal as north London continues to sees a power switch. Everton bounced back to beat Palace 3-1, and the Hammers claimed a clean sheet and 3 points at home to Watford.

Stoke and Brighton and Swansea and Burnley shared the two goals and the points and it was 1-1 at half time at The Emirates until Aguero smashed four 2nd half goals to put City 16 points clear after United lost on Sunday at St James Park.

There was a much needed win for Huddersfield over Bournemouth. Mounie scored twice and Firmino and Salah won the points for Liverpool at Southampton.

Whilst Man City are 16 points ahead of United in 2nd, and 36 points separate 1st from 7th, just 3 points separate Newcastle in 13th to Stoke in 19th, with West Brom 5 points further adrift at the bottom after they surrended to Chelsea on Monday night.

Sat 10th Feb – PL

Man C 5-1 Leicester
