Shaka’s double blow

In what might be his last game for Arsenal, Granit Xhaka scored twice. The Swiss captain scored both goals to make it 1-0 and 2-0 against Wolverhampton Wanderers in less than four minutes.

Xhaka’s contract with the Gunners extends for another season. But the 30-year-old is likely to return to the Bundesliga and sign for Bayer 04 Leverkusen. The current season has been the highest scoring person for the midfielder, who has been given a slightly more attacking role than before. In all competitions, Xhaka scored nine goals for the English runners-up.

Against Wolverhampton, Arsenal won an undisputed victory at home. Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Jesus and Jacob Kuyor were the other scorers in the 5-0 win.

The decision is in the basement

Abdoulaye Doucoure is the name of the man who carries the blue part of Liverpool at his feet. Thanks to a defensive midfielder scoring a half-volley from the edge of the penalty area, Everton beat Bournemouth 1-0 and stayed in line. The Toffees, who will move to a new home at Bramley-Moore Docks within a year, have been in the Premier League without a break since 1954.

Not so for Leicester City. A 2-1 home win over West Ham United was no good for the 2016 champions. Leeds United were also relegated to the Championship after losing their home match against Tottenham Hotspur 4-1.

In Manchester City, the focus was on the upcoming finals in the FA Cup (against Manchester United) and the Champions League (against Inter Milan). Pep Guardiola has rested many stars, including top scorer Erling Haaland and Swiss defender Manuel Akanji. So there was a 0-1 defeat at Brentford, it was the fifth defeat this season.
