An FA Cup Quarter-Final weekend left just four fixtures to be played in the Premier League, with important points on the line for 4th place and the opportunity to climb away from the relegation zone.

Wolves 2-3 Leeds United

An exhilarating Friday night game saw Leeds take all three points in a remarkable comeback thanks to a Luke Ayling’s late winner.

Wolves started off the stronger side and manged to build a comfortable 2-0 lead heading into the break with goals coming from Jonny and Francisco Trincao.

Wolves have been outstanding defensively throughout the course of the season and a two-goal lead at home looked to be enough to see the game out and add three more points to their tally.

Unfortunately for Bruno Lage, Raul Jiminez was given his marching orders following a collision with Leeds goalkeeper, Illan Meslier, allowing the visitors to pull themselves back into the game.

Two quickfire goals from Jack Harrison and Rodrigo just past the hour mark pulled Leeds level and Jesse Marsch’s men were on the hunt for the winner.

With moments to spare, a floated cross fell into the path of Luke Ayling and the defender’s fine finish nicked all three points.

A huge boost for Leeds steers them further away from the drop zone as Jesse Marsch looks to implement his own style into the squad.

Tottenham Hotspur 3-1 West Ham United

A dominant display from Spurs saw them take all three points in a London derby.

Son Hueng Min was at his brilliant best with a brace, following Kurt Zouma’s own goal in the 9th minute of the match.

Said Benrahma brought West Ham into the game with a goal before half time, but the Hammers didn’t look to cause too much threat to Tottenham’s goal and has allowed Spurs to get within touching distance of their bitter rivals, Arsenal, in 4th place.

Brentford 1-2 Leicester City

2 superb goals from James Maddison and Timothy Castagne saw Leicester come out victorious away at Brentford.

The Foxes started brightly and edged out in front within 20 minutes, before Maddison doubled the advnatge 13 minutes later.

Yoan Wissa pulled one back for Brentford with 5 minutes remaining, but they were unable to salavage anything from the game.

Aston Villa 0-1 Arsenal

Arsenal’s progress over the last few months has been clear to see and another 3 points puts them in the driver’s seat for 4th place.

Bukayo Saka scored the only goal of the game on the half hour mark and Aston Villa had no reply for the Gunners.

A huge victory for Arsenal has them sat in 4th place and with games in hand, they will be feeling pretty optimistic on returning to the Champions League.

Player of the Week – Heung Min Son

Two goals in a big victory for Spurs wins Henug Min Son this week’s player of the week and has Tottenham in a strong position as we head into the final few games of the season.
