Premier League Roundup, Matchday 29

The Premier League has completed its 29th matchday, featuring exciting games, impressive player performances, and unexpected outcomes. Here is a summary of the events that took place during matchday 29 in the Premier League.

Luton 1-1 Nottingham Forest

Luke Berry scored a late goal to help Luton secure a 1-1 draw against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League. This extended Luton’s unbeaten streak in head-to-head matches against Forest to six games, dating back to October 2020. Despite Forest trying to slow down the pace in the second half, Luton managed to equalize when Berry scored just five minutes after coming on, following Burke’s assist from Barkley’s corner.

Although Luton’s winless streak in the Premier League has now reached eight matches, this goal was crucial as it keeps them a point above Forest in the standings, as Forest was recently deducted four points for breaching the Premier League financial rules. Nottingham Forest have not won in their last four matches, with Ryan Yates narrowly missing a late chance to secure the victory.

Burnley 2-1 Brentford

Burnley finally broke their winless streak in 2024 by defeating Brentford 2-1 at Turf Moor. The victory left Brentford worried about their position near the relegation zone after suffering their third consecutive away defeat against Burnley. Despite a late goal from Kristoffer Ajer of Brentford, who were playing with 10 men, Burnley held on during a tense nine minutes of stoppage time to secure only their second home win of the season. This win added to the struggles of Thomas Frank’s Brentford team, who are five points above the relegation zone. Burnley, on the other hand, are five points off 17th place.

Fulham 3-0 Tottenham

Fulham secured a convincing 3-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur, who were unable to score for the first time this season. Despite their strong performance this season, Tottenham struggled to find the net, making it an easy final half hour for Fulham. This victory, their first against Tottenham in 10 matches, could reignite Fulham’s chances of European qualification. On the other hand, Tottenham’s hopes of breaking into the top four were dashed, but upcoming home games against Luton and Nottingham Forest offer a chance for a comeback under Ange Postecoglou.

West Ham 1-1 Aston Villa

Aston Villa managed to secure a draw against West Ham in a thrilling finish, as a last-minute goal by the Hammers was overturned by VAR. Aston Villa’s quest for their first-ever win at the London Stadium remains unfulfilled, with the hosts maintaining their unbeaten record against Villa at home for nine games with 4 wins and 5 draws. Despite having won the previous match 4-1 in October, Aston Villa had to settle for a draw, extending their impressive unbeaten streak in London to nine games with 6 wins and 3 draws.

While West Ham may see this as a missed opportunity to gain two points, Aston Villa’s hopes for a top-four finish are still uncertain, holding a three-point lead over Tottenham Hotspur. On the other hand, West Ham’s fourth consecutive Premier League match without defeat has narrowed the gap to sixth-place Manchester United to just three points as they aim for more European football.
