The 2014/15 Premier League campaign is coming to a conclusion but it does not mean some players are not just now opening their accounts. 8 players opened their account over the weekend and through matches on Wednesday with some critical in how the final table will look at the end of May.
Michael Dawson will not be challenging anyone on the Premier League Golden Boot Table but his goal in Hull City’s 1-0 win over Liverpool could well be the critical goal that keeps the Tigers in the Premier League next season. The full point haul has them 4 points above the relegation zone and an eye on safety.
3 other players scored in winning efforts. Manchester City’s Alexander Kolarov and Swansea City’s Nelson Oliveira both scored in games that ended 3-2 beating Aston Villa and Newcastle United, respectively. The win was especially needed to the Citizens as it jumped them back up into 2nd place on the table.
John Stones got in on Everton’s 3-0 pile on over Manchester United. It was the Blue biggest win over the Red Devils in 23 years and has Roberto Martinez’ side back in the Top 10 having won 5 of their last 6 games.
The players opening their account in losing efforts where Aston Villa’s Tom Cleverly and Carlos Sanchez, Newcastle’s Siem De Jong, and Leicester City’s Marc Albrighton.
On the other side of the spectrum, Golden Boot pace setter Sergio Aguero scored in his 3rd consecutive match. The Argentine has 21 goals on the campaign and is battling Tottenham’s Harry Kane for the award.
Hull City’s Dame N’Doye and Southampton’s Graziano Pelle hit braces on the weekend in their 2-0 win over Crystal Palace and 2-2 draw with Tottenham, respectively. It appears Pelle is still not liking the Nike Dynamic Fit Collar and made his own custom ‘improvements.’
The other players finding the net over the past 7 days were: Stoke City’s Charlie Adam, his 3rd goal in 4 games, Tottenham’s Nacer Chadli and Eric Lamela, Swansea City’s Jack Cork and Gylfi Sigurdsson, Chelsea, Didier Drogba, his first goal since early December 2014, John Terry, and Ramires.Manchester City’s Fernandinho, Everton’s James McCarthy, Everton’s Kevin Mirallas, Newcastle’s Ayoze Perez, Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy, and Sunderland’s Conor Wickham.
The run of games over the 7 days saw 27 goals find the back of the net a huge improvement over the 14 goals scored over the previous weekend.
