After the mammoth scores from GW34, GW35 yielded some more meagre tallies, as 6 teams sat this one out due to FA cup commitments
Norwich could only watch with their heads in their hands, as Sunderland earned a point at home to a mis-firing Arsenal which dragged them out of the bottom 3. Their North Eastern neighbours, continue their valiant effort to avoid the drop, overturning a 2 goal deficit at Liverpool while already relegated Villa, despite netting twice, continued their dismal form, losing at home to Southampton. Manchester City, getting in the groove ahead of their Champion’s League clash with Really Sadrid, soundly thumped Stoke 4-0. Last season’s player of the year, Eden Hazard, finally broke his duck with 2 of Chelski’s 4 down on the coast at Bournemouth, but all eyes were on the top 2, as the title race reaches its closing stages. It was another dilly-ding dilly-dong result for the Foxes (who are in the Champion’s League man!) who, without Jamie Vardy, destroyed Swansea to open the lead to 8 points with this season’s player of the year, Riyad Mahrez, opening the scoring on 10 minutes. Spurs, who have been in frighteningly good form this season, had a seemingly routine game at home to West Brom to get withing touching distance of Leicester again. But the Baggies stood firm & despite scoring an own goal, Craig Dawson redeemed himself with a 73rd minute equaliser, securing a result that will please Eden Hazard. However, video footage has showed this season’s young player of the year, Delli Alli to have punched Claudio Yacob, so watch the news ahead of transfers The Spurs draw now means Leicester only need one win to take home the pot, so it’s a good job they have plenty of room in their trophy cabinet

Back at the Stadium of Faith, I have retrieved the lawnmower from the neighbour’s garden after it broke free of the cricket stump it was tethered to. Hope he doesn’t notice the patches of daffodils missing & the oil slick in the pond.
