Daniel Farke thinks that Crysencio Summerville has the potential to continue improving, as shown by his two goals in Leeds’ dominant 4-1 win over Huddersfield at Elland Road.
The Dutchman also assisted one of Dan James’ two goals as Leeds quickly took a 4-0 lead in the first half. However, Farke emphasized the importance of the 21-year-old continuing to improve his skills. “Consistency is key, so while it’s been a great week for him in terms of producing results, he needs to keep pushing himself. It’s crucial for a young player to develop and contribute with both goals and assists.”
In the match between Leicester and QPR, Harry Winks scored a goal in the final moments, securing a 2-1 victory for Leicester. Despite Stephy Mavididi opening the scoring, Andre Dozzell managed to equalize just before halftime. However, Dozzell was later sent off in the second half. Despite QPR’s efforts, they were unable to overcome their one-man disadvantage and ultimately lost to Leicester. This was QPR’s sixth consecutive defeat in the league, leading to the dismissal of their head coach Gareth Ainsworth.
Ipswich, who are playing at a high level, overcame a deficit to extend their streak of not losing in nine games with a 3-2 win against Plymouth. Morgan Whittaker netted an impressive goal for the away team in the seventh minute, but Ipswich managed to tie the game just before halftime thanks to an own goal by Bali Mumba, a former player for Norwich. George Hirst then scored to give Ipswich the lead shortly after the second half began.
Vaclav Hladky, the goalkeeper for Ipswich, saved the day as Argyle pushed forward in the final moments of the game. However, Marcus Harness scored in the 86th minute, securing the victory for Ipswich despite a last-minute goal from Joe Edwards.
Sunderland broke their streak of three consecutive losses in the league by earning a well-deserved 3-1 win over Norwich, who have not won in their last five games. Hwang Ui-jo scored the first goal for Norwich against the flow of the game in the first half, but Sunderland responded with goals from Trai Hume and Dan Neil before halftime. League’s leading scorer, Jack Clarke, sealed the victory with his ninth goal of the season from a penalty kick with 10 minutes remaining.
Sunderland’s win propelled them to seventh place, while Norwich’s decline persists. David Wagner’s team has only won one of their past eight games and has dropped to 17th place.
Wayne Rooney, the manager of Birmingham, suffered their third consecutive defeat as Southampton claimed a 3-1 victory. Taylor Harwood-Bellis, Carlos Alcaraz, and Adam Armstrong scored for Southampton, while Jay Stansfield managed to get one goal back before Armstrong sealed the win with a third goal.
Perry Ng extended his streak of scoring as Cardiff defeated Bristol City 2-0 and climbed into the top five. In his eight-year career, Ng has only scored 12 goals in the league, but three of those have been in the last six matches. His first-half header as a full-back gave Cardiff the lead, and substitute Rubin Colwill secured the win in stoppage time with a powerful shot into the top of the goal.
Jaden Philogene’s outstanding goal in the second half led to Preston’s downfall as they suffered a 1-0 loss against Hull. After scoring a magnificent goal against Birmingham earlier in the week, Philogene once again showcased his skills with a powerful low shot in the 68th minute. Despite a lackluster game, the England Under-21 player stood out and helped Hull break their streak of disappointing home performances, placing them in the play-off spots.
Stoke finished an excellent week with a strong performance, defeating Middlesbrough 2-0 and putting an end to their opponent’s six-game winning streak at the Riverside.

In the 90+2 minute, substitute Mileta Rajovic scored a crucial goal for Watford, saving them from a loss in a heated 2-2 match against Millwall at Vicarage Road. The Danish player scored with a header off of Imran Louza’s cross, equalizing the game after a late goal from Wes Harding. This result keeps both teams firmly in the middle of the table.
Bartosz Bialkowski made an error that led to the home team taking the lead in the seventh minute. He was unable to hold onto a shot from Edo Kayembe. Jake Cooper’s attempt to clear the ball ended up bouncing off Yáser Asprilla and into the net. Millwall scored an equalizer when Casper De Norre sent a cross into the box, which Tom Bradshaw redirected for Zian Flemming to head in at the far post.
Liam Cullen scored the only goal as Swansea beat Blackburn 1-0 for their first Ewood Park victory since 1971.
