(West Ham – Aston Villa 2-1) Ukrainian Andrij Yarmolenko burst into tears after scoring the first goal of the match against Aston Villa.
Inside Aston Villas, Yarmolenko got the ball by 16 metres. The Ukrainian turned on the pentacle and grabbed his left foot from the outside. The ball hit the goal and the home team went ahead.
Many Ukrainian flags were waved in the stands, and it all became very impressive for Yarmolenko. The 32-year-old graced 106 caps and scored 44 goals for Ukraine, which was embraced by his teammates.
Yarmolenko is the man who scored the second most goals for Ukraine, only two behind striker Andrey Shevchenko. It is also the third highest number of international matches for Ukraine.
Shortly thereafter, Pablo Fornals scored a 2-0 goal, before Aston Villa fell back through Jacob Ramsey and fixed the score 2-1.
In the settlement between Leeds and Norwich, it was an exciting and long-awaited revival for the home team.
Leeds have not won the league since January 16, 2021. Since then, there have been seven losses, one draw and one manager change.
Marcelo Bielsa was forced to leave and Jesse Marsh, former manager of Erling Braut Haaland and Salzburg, attended.
Less than a quarter of an hour passed when Daniel James, inside the 16-meter Norwich, shoved the ball to teammate Rodrigo Moreno. The Brazilian spent a millisecond making the decision, before firing at the target. The ball was trampled between the Norwich defenders and stuck to the longest root yet.
But then, as extra time started, Finn Teemu Pukki ran freely in Leeds for 16 metres. The Finn did not hesitate for a second and scored 1-1.
But the match was not over, and one minute before the end of the extra four minutes, Joe shook Gilhart with a score of 2-1. Thus, Leeds, Marsh and Island Road could all cheer for the win, and at the time of writing they were above the relegation line.
At the same time that Leeds scored important points at home, Southampton met Watford. Cucho Hernandez was in good shape and scored two goals for the visitors before playing 35 minutes.
But instead of going into the locker room with two in the bag and a head hanging, Mohamed El Younosi went on to do a little magic that made the break a little easier on the home team.
In a free kick from the right, the ball hit the penalty area. Che Adams stunned the ball even more and on the back post, Al Wunousi stormed in and smashed the ball into the net.
The reduction was the last goal of the match.
In the settlement between Chelsea and Newcastle, it seemed for a long time to end without goals. Then Kai Havertz appeared and got 1-0 and three points for the host in a beautiful way.
Everton suffers under the leadership of Frank Lampard and is overtaken by Leeds, and is now slightly above the relegation line after losing 0-1 to Wolverhampton.
