Here is a brief recap of the English Premier League matches that took place on match day 12. Ayoze Pérez’s 27th minute goal gave Newcastle a very important 1-0 win over Bournemouth. Third place Leicester continued their good form, beating Watford 2-1 with Jamie Vardy netting his 12th goal of the season. Manchester United were 2-0 victors over West Brom. Swansea were defeated 1-0 by Norwich. Southampton won 1-0 against Sunderland thanks to Dusan Tadic’s 69th minute penalty conversion. West Ham and Everton drew, 1-1. Chelsea are now only 3 points above the relegation zone after their 1-0 loss to Stoke City. Aston Villa held Manchester City to a 0-0 draw in Remi Garde’s (Aston Villa) first game as manager. Scott Dann’s 82nd minute goal gave Crystal Palace a 1-0 victory over Liverpool. The biggest game this weekend was the North London Derby, Arsenal vs Tottenham. Tottenham were, in my opinion, the better team for the majority of the match. Harry Kane scored in the 32nd minute to give the Spurs the lead. After that Tottenham had many opportunities to increase their lead, but couldn’t finish. Then in the 77th minute Kieran Gibbs, who came on as a sub, netted to salvage a point for Arsenal. A tie wasn’t a terrible result for either team. Well, that’s all for match day 12’s EPL action.
