Weekend in Review-- Week 26

Sophie Gayter

Anything Wanyama can do Salah can do better...

Best game:

Liverpool 2-- Tottenham 2: If it hadn't been for the stupidity that was Liverpool Man City a few weeks before, this would have been the game of the season so far. Golazos, a missed penalty, a scored penalty (which happened to also be Kane's 100th Premier League goal) and the officials cocking up virtually every decision in front of them. This game was a real sparring match-- Liverpool purred, Spurs wrestled control back, Salah looked to have won it for Liverpool with a moment of genius, before Kane leveled with the last kick of the game. A great advert for the Premier League as they say, though not for its officiating. 

Best goal:

Mohamed Salah-- What a ridiculously special goal. The Egyptian picked up the ball on the edge of the box, practically foxtrotted through the Spurs defense before lifting it beautifully from a tight angle over Hugo Lloris. Goal of the Season? Probably a question of taste. Wanyama's spanked effort at the other end might be more to the liking of some, but personally I love a dribbly, jinky goal.

Player of the weekend:

Mohamed Salah-- Yes Arsenal fans I know Aaron Ramsey scored a hattrick this weekend. But it was against an Everton team who put in maybe the worst performance I've ever seen in a Premier League game. Salah on the other hand ripped apart one of the league's most formidable backlines on his own. He does things that only HRH Lionel Messi can do. Salah is composed, clinical, lightning quick, and is having as big an impact on this Premier League season as Ronaldo, Suarez, and Henry at their best once did. He'll have to do it more than one season to be spoken about in the same breath as those 3 in years to come, but he is showing no signs of stopping of late.

Team of the weekend:
