It’s funny what a week, a day and an hour can do to the atmosphere of a Premier League season.

Seven days ago, Manchester United became champions of the tournament days after knocking the European giant out of European competition. Today, it’s a team that folded up like cheap gift wrapping and let one of its all-time rivals hang a historic result on their dressing room door.

This result made us almost forget what happened 24 hours ago when Arsenal demanded every last eye in the Premier League to see a 2-0 lead they allowed for one of the league’s most dying teams and then saw how they tore the cherry red color of this team. heart from the chest in front of the whole table.

And, oh yes, we mentioned that any one of the six teams could end up in the bottom three at any point in the game week moving forward – live table style – because dropping out requires as many participants as possible.

We? Hm?

so what did will we learn from the premier league this weekend? Here’s where our writers live as Joe Prince-Wright (JPW), Andy Edwards (AE) and Nicholas Mendola (NM) share their insights into the latest PL games.

10 things we learned in the Premier League: Week 26

1. Fate hangs in the air: Arsenal score incredible comeback victory (Arsenal 3-2 Bournemouth): The way Arsenal players, supporters and staff celebrated Reiss Nelson’s thunderbolt is like a moment that title-winning teams have on their way to the title. A 2-0 loss with 28 minutes left to face relegation-chasing Bournemouth, all signs indicated that today was not Arsenal’s day. But with 12 games left, there is a sense of destiny in this Gunners team. They recently bounced back to win at Aston Villa and scored more winning goals (three) in the 90th minute than any other Premier League side this season. Even though it was cruel to Bournemouth, they can’t complain about the defeat. Mikel Arteta’s substitutions have worked, with Ben White and Reiss Nelson both scoring as everyone contributes (they have 14 different scorers, more than any other Premier League side this season) and reacting to the loss to Manchester City in February was incredible. Four victories in a row go very differently for everyone. Mikel Arteta and this young Arsenal team are turning into a hungry, obnoxious winning machine, and the Gunners have an aura of doom around them right now. (Japan)

2. What could 7-0 mean for Liverpool? Almost all (Liverpool 7-0 Manchester United): The Reds were scoring home goals on Sunday with a frequency we’ve only seen this season and it was only fitting that Mohamed Salah, who had a very, very good and pretty bad -radar season – was able to organize a “look at me” day because his teammates were able to fix their danger. Don’t be surprised if Roberto Firmino, who came off the bench to score a goal, gets a decent end to his Liverpool career in the last few months of the season. He was also not bad – 8 goals and 4 assists in 1008 minutes. Moreover, if Liverpool are going to lash out at mistakes in this way, it might not be crazy to imagine the Reds winning back a 5-2 gap to Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League. The victory means that Liverpool can boast a place in the Manchester United record book, which says “Worst defeat in history”. I bet it’s good too. (New Mexico)

3. Chelsea refuse to make it easy, but get the necessary B (Chelsea 1-0 Leeds): What a time it is for Graham Potter to look at his team’s defence, form and performance and say ‘Yeah’. Yeah. Yeah.’ until he gets to the final ball. It’s funny and fitting that Wesley Fofana, not only not a striker, but also not the most likely Fofana player on Chelsea’s lists, scored a goal and gave Chelsea the lead. We mentioned last week how bad Chelsea are when it comes to scoring goals. Well, today let’s talk about how part of it is making terrible decisions before even getting into position to shoot. Teams like Chelsea should not let defensive midfielders easily close odd breaks as easily as rivals do against the Blues this year. Then there was Kai Havertz’s drive from the right, where the German played brilliantly into Raheem Sterling’s net, but instead dribbled closer and closer to the goal until he was at a distance where it would have been stranger if Illan Mellier Not get part of his application for the target. It was strange for Chelsea, who deserved to win, but not as much as their supporters think they deserve to be able to watch a game against Leeds without being out of breath at the final whistle. (New Mexico)

4. Goal-hungry Newcastle eaten by hungry Man City (Manchester City 2-0 Newcastle): “This game summed up where both Newcastle and Manchester City are now. Newcastle ran out of steam – and most importantly, the goals scored – in a key part of the season while Man City are just picking up the pace, as they like to do in the spring, Newcastle have created great chances but Sean Longstaff, Callum Wilson and Joelinton have failed to materialize and have now only scored three goals in the last eight Premier League games It’s not enough if you want to get to Europe Man City weren’t at their best but were full of energy as Phil Foden writhed like an electric eel to sum up the champions’ desire Pep Guardiola was in delighted with City’s mid-week mindset and said he liked what he saw in training. This team knows what to do at this point in the season to get the wins they want. Newcastle have yet to learn that. (Japan) )

5. Lopetegui’s Wolves capitalize on familiar Tottenham history (Wolverhampton 1-0 Spurs): (Giant gasp) At the first whistle, it was obvious to anyone who watched the Spurs for more than 30 minutes this season that they would toil in possession and hesitantly enter the final third without ever really threatening the goal of José Sa, before missing one or two big chances the other way against the flow of the game, and it just so happened that one of them ended up behind the line. So it was. Adama Traore cleared the ball from under the crossbar in the 82nd minute and no Tottenham fan was surprised (or hardly disappointed) by the result as Tottenham missed a chance to improve their reserve in the top four and exit the FA Cup , while (mostly) rested Harry Kane in the middle of the week. (AE)

6. What should 7-0 mean for Manchester United? Fine… (Liverpool 7-0 Manchester United): Eric ten Hag’s Manchester United have been resilient, solid and exceptional over the past month, beating Barcelona, ​​Newcastle United and West Ham in knockout matches and hinting that the Red Devils may finally be back. Eric ten Hag’s Manchester United were neither resilient nor solid nor exceptional in any positive way on Sunday, razed to the ground by recently defeated Liverpool who happily took advantage of Manchester United’s countless mistakes to rebuild their top four hopes at Anfield. Now the Dutch boss must react properly, because even the stars he hailed for their mentality after winning the League Cup – Raphael Varane, Casemiro, David De Gea – looked disinterested by the time the game ended 3-0. Perhaps Ten Hag’s apparent decision to end it with his 58th-minute substitutions for Scott McTominay and Alejandro Garnacho instead of Vout Weghorst and Fred just roared through the entire team. He better hope that his weekly decisions will have a similar, albeit positive, effect. This defeat means that Liverpool can boast a place in the Manchester United record book, which says “Worst defeat in history”. I bet it will be very, very bad. And it could go on forever. Ooooooooo (New Mexico)

7. The drive to win is paying off for the Saints in what could be an unprecedented failure in the Premier League. (Southampton 1-0 Leicester): No, the Premier League’s vast and more applicable wealth has prevented a season where relegation can literally anyone – not yet – but look at the bottom of the table this year . The Saints are three points behind the Spurs, who finished in 15th place. Literally any team in the bottom 5 could end up in a relegation position due to one bad week, a bad call or a bad tackle. And that’s why Carlos Alcaraz’s goal may have been worth the cost, even if the striker, who appeared to be injured during his goal celebration, missed quite a bit of time. Pranks won’t help. Winning raises you clear. This could have been a mega moment for the set of St. Mary’s. (New Mexico)

8. When should we start worrying about the Palace? (Aston Villa 1-0 Crystal Palace): Having…
