Belgian phenomenon sends Manchester City closer to the championship with four goals


Kevin De Bruyne went goal-mad as Manchester City on Wednesday night came one step closer to winning the Premier League championship.

The Belgian midfield maestro was unruly, scoring four of City’s goals in a 5-1 win over Wolverhampton.

De Bruyne had already delivered a hat-trick midway through the first half, and a quarter of an hour after the break he then came up with four goals.

The result means that Manchester City with two games left leads the Premier League with 3 points down to Liverpool in second place. A City victory on Sunday over West Ham and a points loss to Liverpool in Tuesday’s away game against Southampton, will therefore send the championship to Manchester.

The De Bruyne show began in the 7th minute, after which City got a bit of a shock. Leander Dendoncker equalized for Wolverhampton, but there was no equality on the scoreboard for very long.

A quarter of an hour later it was 3-1 to City after two more De Bruyne hits. The Belgian came up on a hat trick with a hard shot from the edge of the box.

The 4-1 goal in the second half took the breath away from Wolverhampton. Raheem Sterling knocked the last nail in Wolverhampton’s coffin with about 10 minutes left.

Brentford secured new season

Thomas Frank and Brentford will also play in the Premier League next season. That’s a fact after Leeds lost 0-3 to Chelsea on Wednesday. The result means Leeds, who are currently just below the relegation line, cannot finish above Brentford.

9 points separate the two teams and Leeds have only two games left in the calendar.

Brentford, who are in 13th place, have never been in concrete danger of relegation, but with a place at the heavy end of the table, the Danish club has had to look a little over the shoulder. It is not necessary anymore.

Andreas Christensen started inside Chelsea against Leeds, and he could already after a few minutes see Mason Mount make it 1-0. Only 10 minutes after the break was it then 2-0 by Christian Pulisic, before Romelu Lukaku closed the match with his goal to 3-0 about 10 minutes before time.

The victory gives Chelsea good chances to end up in the top-4 and redeem a ticket to the Champions League next season. Thomas Tuchel’s team has in third place 8 points down to Tottenham, who have certainly played one game less.
