There was midweek action in the Premier League, as the best 20 clubs in the English football resumed hostilities in a bid to fulfill their season objectives.

We have approached the crunch period of the season and with just 10 matches left, we have a clear picture of what the table is shaping out to be.

Liverpool and Manchester City are sure to slug it out in a two-horse race that is certain to go down to the wire, and both teams did their hopes massive favors by posting victories, albeit in different circumstances as The Reds ran riot over Watford in a 5-0 victory, while City had a more pragmatic 1-0 win over West Ham.

Directly beneath them, the race for the top four is bound to be as intense, as four clubs battle it out for just two spots and all bar Tottenham (who lost 2-0 to Chelsea) posted victories to aid their top four quest.

The relegation battle is also not left out, as clubs like Southampton and Huddersfield did their survival chances a world of good with victories, while it got worse for the likes of Fulham, Cardiff and Brighton.

Matchday 28 served us a lot of excitement and thrilling goals, surprises and stunning goals, while there were also some record breaking feats. In this piece, we shall be taking a look at three records which were set over gameweek 28 in the Premier League.

Saying that Manchester United have undergone a massive transformation since Ole Gunnar Solksjaer took over the reins at the club would be a massive understatement, as the Norwegian has totally changed the dynamics at the club.

He has replaced the dour unattractive style of play deployed under Jose Mourinho with a more vibrant attacking verve which is more in tune with the United way and the club has been much better off for it.

United are yet to lose in 12 matches under the 46-year-old, which has seen them gazzump up the table and firmly back in the discussions for a top four finish which would have been unthinkable just two months ago.

The 3-1 victory against Crystal Palace happened to be the first time that Manchester United have won eight consecutive victories away from home in all competitions which further illustrates how much progress The Red Devils have made under the watch of their former player.
