PL: Watford snatch a draw in Newcastle, Everton sinks in Norwich, Wolverhampton confirms


Only 3 matches were scheduled this Saturday for the traditional multi Premier League (22nd day) at 4 p.m., due to the postponement of the Burnley-Leicester match. The oh so important part for maintaining in the English elite between Newcastle and Watford gave birth to no winner (1-1). If Allan Saint-Maximin thought for a long time that he had offered the Magpies their second success of the season after an individual feat, Eddie Howe’s band, as too often, cracked at the end of the match. Joao Pedro, with an angry head, allows Claudio Ranieri’s men to stop their series of 6 consecutive defeats. Preventing at the same time Newcastle from going back in front of them in the standings. Note that new recruit Chris Wood was a starter, as was Kieran Trippier.

In the other duel at the bottom of the table, the now ex-red lantern of PL, Norwich, offered their 3rd success of the year against a formation of Everton (2-1) in free fall for long weeks (12 losses in 13 games). The Mersey club, despite a nice reduction in the gap signed Richarlison with a nice return, conceded two fatal goals in quick succession in the first period. Rafael Benitez could also very soon be sacked by the management of the Toffees… The Canaries go back to 18th place ahead of Newcastle. Finally, the 2nd best defense of the Kingdom held the shock and Wolverhampton beat Southampton (3-1) at Molineux, in particular after a turbulent end to the match which saw James Ward-Prowse score a new goal from a free kick. The Wolves chain a 4th match without defeat in the league and remain on the lookout for European places.

The results of 4 p.m. in the Premier League

Newcastle 1-1 Watford: Saint-Maximin (49th) / Joao Pedro (88th)

Norwich 2-1 Everton: Keane (16th, csc), Idah (18th) / Richarlison (60th)
