Chelsea were unable to beat the penultimate Burnley (2-2), although reduced to ten, on Saturday during the 30th day of the Premier League, marked by Newcastle’s spectacular victory over West Ham (4-3). ).

. St James’ Park, l’attraction

Undermined by injuries, trailing by two goals in the 75th minute, Newcastle managed to blow away West Ham in a packed St James’ Park stadium.

“It’s a match we will never forget,” coach Eddie Howe exclaimed on the BBC, happy to see his team “never give up” despite the multiple blows of fate.

His infirmary problems (Pope, Trippier, Botman, Joelinton, Wilson, etc.) worsened further on Saturday with the injury exits of captain Jamaal Lascelles, full-back Tino Livramento and the one who replaced him, the winger Miguel Almirón.

But the substitute’s replacement, Harvey Barnes, put on the superhero cape by scoring the equalizing goal (83rd, 3-3) then the winning goal (90th, 4-3).

West Ham (7th, 44 pts) and its goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, who left injured at half-time, are only one point ahead of the “Magpies” in the standings.

. Stamford Bridge, the disappointment

In front of their home crowd, Chelsea led twice and then came back as many times, against the promoted and current penultimate Burnley (2-2), although reduced to ten players before half-time.

This poor performance is a task for Mauricio Pochettino’s team, eleventh in the standings in the final stretch of the season.

“We didn’t show the capacity, the energy, the hunger, the minimum to compete in the Premier League. That’s why I’m so upset and disappointed,” said the Argentine coach.

His “Blues” however seemed to be on a royal road after the penalty conceded by Lorenz Assignon, defender loaned by Rennes and sent off for this foul committed on Mykhailo Mudryk.

Cole Palmer transformed the penalty with a “Panenka” shot full axis (44th, 1-0), but a clinical recovery from Josh Cullen (47th, 1-1) rang the Londoners on their return from the locker room.

Rebelote at the end of the match: Palmer’s double, served by a subtle and decisive backheel from Raheem Sterling (78th, 2-1), was erased three minutes later by a header from Dara O’Shea which slipped between the gloves of Petrovic (81st, 2-2).

. The C1, very coveted

The battle to access the next Champions League did not change during the 30th day: Aston Villa, fourth, dominated Wolverhampton 2-0 to maintain a three-point lead over Tottenham, winner of Luton (2- 1) in a more sluggish manner.

Unai Emery’s “Villans” can say thank you to Moussa Diaby. The French striker honored his first start in two months of the championship with a goal (36th), with a heavy strike outside the area, and a blind assist for defender Ezri Konsa who came to create the excess (65th).

The Birmingham club regained fourth place which had briefly escaped them in the afternoon, after Tottenham’s victory against promoted Luton.

For the Spurs, the reception of the first relegation started badly, with a goal conceded after two minutes and nineteen seconds (3rd, 0-1), and it continued in the bad luck of a triple missed opportunity: shot from Heung-Min Son repelled by two posts, strikes from Timo Werner and Pape Matar Sarr repelled by the defense (20th).

In the second half, Ange Postecoglou’s team still managed to turn the tide, first on a strong cross from incoming Brennan Johnson catapulted into his own goal by Issa Kaboré (51st, 1-1), then with Son’s 160th goal in the Spurs jersey (86th, 2-1).

. Forest comes out of the red

The outcome of the match was cruel for Luton, eighteenth, overtaken by Nottingham Forest who left the red zone after a draw against Crystal Palace (1-1).

The two competitors for maintenance both have 22 points, three less than Everton, beaten 2-1 by Bournemouth because of an own goal from captain Séamus Coleman in the 90th + 1.

The bottom red, Sheffield United (15 pts), led 3-1 against Fulham before being caught at 3-3 in added time on an acrobatic volley from Rodrigo Muniz, his eighth goal in eight matches
