Highs and Low of EPL Week 30

Midweek CL
Man City is the only EPL team left in the q-final draw after they drew 0-0 with D Kyiv at Etihad with a 3-1 aggregate. Arsenal, as usual went out against a rampant MSN (Messi, Suarez, Neymar) Barcelona by aggregate 5-1. The trio scored  a goal each at Nou Camp to knock out Arsenal.

Europa League
The Red devils just could not recover from the first leg 2-0 loss at Anfield and went out to Klopp's Liverpool 3-1 aggregate. Another door shut against LvG's side and they surely now need the FA Cup to salvage a poor season. This week, they visit a buoyant Man City in the Manchester derby.

Liverpool is now the only EPL team in the Europa league after Spurs crashed against B Dortmund.

The top 3 teams won this week before the 2 weeks international break. Leicester is still very resilient in their 1-0 win over Palace while Spurs is going on strength to strength in 3-0 win over Bournemouth. The big loser is Man City who lost in the Manchester derby at Eithad. The only Mancurian in the Red Devils side, Marcus Rashford scored a brilliant winning goal. He is also the youngest player to score in this derby. He is one of the few saving graces in LvG side this season.
