Gameweek 26 of the Premier League was a limited affair with the Manchester United and Manchester City game and Arsenal and Southampton game postponed to a later date due to Manchester United and the Saints’ involvement in the EFL Cup final.

However, there was plenty of action between the remainder of the sides; Chelsea extended their lead by 10 points at the top of the table and Tottenham climbed to second after scoring four goals against Stoke.

Sunderland remained at the bottom of the table after losing to Everton, who extended their unbeaten run, and West Brom kept up their recent good form with a victory against Bournemouth. The fixture between Hull City and Burnley ended in a stalemate, as did the game between the Hammers and Watford.

Here’s a look at Sportskeeda’s Team of the Week:

Wayne Hennessey made four saves for Crystal Palace

Wayne Hennessey kept his side’s dream of escaping the relegation zone alive by keeping Boro players out of his goal. After Patrick van Aanholt gave the Eagles the lead, Hennessey had the responsibility of seeing the game through, making four saves. He stood in the way of an attempt each from Gaston Ramirez, Cristhian Stuani, and Ben Gibson.
