Check out our review of the 33rd Premier League round, as we list the hottest talking points from the latest action of English football.

Gameweek 33 was on the schedule in the English Premier League over the past weekend, as we are getting closer to the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Arsenal secured what could be regarded as a surprising win at Wolverhampton back on Saturday, while Chelsea and Leicester City kept their places in top-four with wins over Watford and Crystal Palace respectively.

Former champions Manchester City suffered their ninth defeat of the season, losing 1-0 to in-form Southampton. Their neighbors Manchester United thrashed Bournemouth with a 5-2 win at Old Trafford.

Check out all the takeaways from this weekend’s Premier League action, below in this article.

Jamie Vardy joins the Premier League 100 club

Jamie Vardy finally woke up from the COVID-19 break, as he bagged a brace to lead Leicester City to a vital 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace.

With his first strike in the game, Vardy reached a century of goals in top-flight English football, becoming the 29th player to achieve this since the competition was founded in 1992.

The Leicester City forward also moved two goals clear of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the top of the goalscorers list, as he is chasing his first-ever Premier League Golden Boot award.

Jose Mourinho earned his 200th Premier League win

Spurs head coach Jose Mourinho also joined an exclusive club, as he became only the fifth manager with 200 Premier League wins in the history of the competition thanks to a 1-0 victory over Everton.

In both tenures at Chelsea, Jose registered a total 140 wins, 50 came as a manager of Manchester United and this was his 10th since being appointed in charge at Tottenham Hotspur.

The other four managers with this achievement are Sir Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger, Harry Redknapp and David Moyes.

Mason Greenwood is THE hottest prospect of English football

Manchester United probably showed the best performance in the 33rd Premier League round, beating Bournemouth 5-2 to maintain their pressure on Chelsea and Leicester City for a place in top four.

The man who really impressed for the Red Devils, was 18-year-old Mason Grenwood, who bagged a double – one with his either foot.

Greenwood is enjoying a perfect debut season in the senior squad, having scored 15 goals across all competitions so far.
