We’re finally here. The end of the 2017-18 Premier League season. Just one more matchweek to go along with the midweek matches left to be played for a few teams. Where Manchester City were already crowned champions some time ago, the relegation battle is also coming to a conclusion. Stoke City’s relegation to the Championship was confirmed in Matchweek 37. West Brom, meanwhile, kept their Premier League hopes alive in the most dramatic of fashions. The race for the Champions League positions also took an interesting turn with Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Liverpool. All these things were major factors to consider for our Premier League Team of the Week for Matchweek 37.
One of the prevailing storylines of this past matchweek was Arsène Wenger’s final home game at the Emirates Stadium. The game was also against Burnley who have jostled with the Gunners for sixth position. Well, Wenger got a perfect send-off as Arsenal destroyed the Clarets, 5-0. It was the Frenchman’s post-match quotes that got all the attention, however.
Chelsea vs Liverpool was the headlining game of the week in which Antono Conte’s side emerged as the victor. Suddenly, Chelsea are only three points behind Liverpool (3rd) and two points behind Tottenham (4th) in the table. Both the Blues and the Lilywhites have a game in hand. The Top-Four will only be decided on the final matchday now.
At the bottom of the table, Stoke were relegated after a 1-2 loss to Crystal Palace. Swansea’s hopes took a dent after a loss to Bournemouth, while Southampton did themselves no favour, drawing with Everton. West Brom, on the other hand, kept their survival hopes alive with an extremely dramatic 1-0 win over Tottenham.
With such pivotal results, choosing our Premier League Team of the Week was tough, but here we are with another edition of this feature. We’ve formed our team in a 4-4-2 formation. The formation will have one defensive midfielder and one attacking midfielder, with men on either flank.
Formation: 4-4-2 (Variant is 4-1-2-1-2)
