– AFC Bournemouth vs Tottenham saw Nathan Ake nod home the only goal of the match in stoppage-time as Cherries 19-year-old goalie Mark Travers make debut

– Son Heung-min was handed a red card on the dot of 45 minutes for shoving Jefferson Lerma

– Spurs substitute Juan Foyth was also sent off just two minutes after coming on at half time for a wild tackle on Bournemouth defender Jack Simpson

Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League qualification hopes for next season have been dealt a massive dent after Bournemouth’s 1-0 win over over the North Londoners on Saturday, May 4, at the Vitality Stadium.

The Premier League tie was packed with drama as Spurs were reduced to nine men after Juan Foyth and Heung-Min Son saw red in the fiery encounter at Vitality Stadium.

Mauricio Pochettino’s squad will now have to limp through the final turn of the Premier League race after losing three more points, coupled with more suspensions and injuries.

Following the two red cards, Spurs sent on Kenya’s Victor Wanyama to try steady the ship and hope to mitigate the situation and settle for a 0-0 draw.

However the Cherries had other plans for the day and continued piling pressure on the White Lilies until they finally found the back of the net.

It was Nathan Ake who rose up and put the ball behind Hugo lloris with a timely header to give Bournemouth the lead at stoppage time.

The result leaves Tottenham in third place with 70 points and provided Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United with a good chance to secure a top four spot.

Liverpool powered back to the top of the Premier League after Mohamed Salah’s stunning strike clinched a 2-0 win over Chelsea on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side had surrendered pole position a few hours earlier when Manchester City won 3-1 at Crystal Palace, piling pressure on the Reds to respond as the title race heats up.

Liverpool rose to the challenge as Sadio Mane’s opener five minutes after the break and a blistering long-range drive from Salah two minutes later moved them two points clear of second-placed City on a raucous afternoon at Anfield.

City have five games left compared to just four for Liverpool, leaving the destiny of the title in the hands of the champions.

But there is a growing feeling at Anfield that this will be the season Liverpool finally end their 29-year wait to be crowned kings of English football.

With City having difficult league fixtures looming against Tottenham and Manchester United, Klopp’s men are convinced they can hold onto pole position.

Their run-in is undoubtedly less daunting than City’s, with Cardiff, Huddersfield and Newcastle on the schedule before a potential title party against Wolves at Anfield.

For fourth-placed Chelsea, the loss was a blow to their bid for Champions League football next season and they will drop to fifth if Arsenal win at Watford on Monday.

to Antonio Rudiger, Chelsea creaked at the back and Liverpool took full advantage to break the deadlock in the 51st minute.

When Salah scampered onto Roberto Firmino’s flick in the Chelsea area, Blues defender Emerson could only prod the ball to the influential Jordan Henderson and his deft cross reached the unmarked Mane, who headed home at the far post.

Any Liverpool nerves had been wiped away by jubilant celebrations and soon after Salah blew the roof off Anfield with a moment of pure genius.

Taking possession wide on the right flank, Salah cut inside and glided away from Emerson before unleashing a sumptuous 25-yard drive that arrowed past Kepa into the far corner.

It was a sweet moment of vindication for the Egypt forward after a group of Chelsea fans were filmed chanting “Salah is a bomber” before their team’s Europa League tie at Slavia Prague on Thursday.

And Salah, a practising Muslim, celebrated his 22nd goal of the season by adopting a prayer position in front of the Kop.

– Burnley won the match 2-0 thanks to Chris Wood’s brace A Premier League match pitting Burnley and Cardiff City played on Saturday, April 13, was characterized by dramatic scenes even as the Clarets marched to a 2-0 victory.

The high stakes relegation battle presented a rather bizarre incident after Burnley’s Ashley Barnes kissed his opponent on the nose to earn a booking from Mike Dean who officiated the match.

The incident happened moments before the break when Cardiff City’s Joe Bennett fouled Barnes to spark an ugly confrontation. In a video that has since gone viral, the two players can be seen embroiled in a face-off before Barnes decided to kiss Bennett on the bridge of the nose twice.

Both players were booked for their actions, and luckily for Barnes, Harry Arter was there to pull him away from the flash point.

Meanwhile, Chris Wood’s brace during the tie was the difference as Burnley carted away all the three points at Turf Moor. Cardiff remain 18th on the log with 28 points, with relegation to Championship looking inevitable.
