The drama continues in the English Premier League (EPL) as the 2019/20 goes to an end as teams are fighting for maximum points to finish on a good position and earn a spot in the European competition with some fighting for their lives to play in the English top league next season.

On Tuesday, Aston Villa boosted their survival chances in the league when they defeated Arsenal 1-0 at the Villa park for the first time since 1998.

Going into the match, Arsenal were favourites to win the match having defeated Manchester City 2-0 on Saturday in the semifinals of the FA cup but Aston Villa which is avoiding relegation thought otherwise.

A 27th-minute goal from Trezeguet was enough for the home side to collect maximum points as they stood strong in defence to deny the gunners an equaliser.

The win has helped Aston Villa to move out of the relegation zone as they have climbed to position 17 with 34 points equal to those of Watford but they have a better goal difference while the loss is a big blow to Arsenal which is fighting for a spot in the European competition and might finish the season out of the top 6 for the first time in many years as they are on position 10 with 53 points.

In another match on the night, Manchester City whipped relegation-threatened Watford United 4-0 thanks to a brace from Raheem Sterling with the other goals coming from Foden and Laporte.

The loss has seen Watford drop into the relegation zone as they are on position 18 with 34 points while Manchester City has 78 points and on 2nd position.
