Manchester United is in the third place in the Premier League

Thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ penalty, Man Utd won Leicester 2-0 in the final round and won the Champions League ticket next season.

Bruno Fernandes skipped a free kick and scored a penalty in the second half

Lacking four pillars due to injuries and penalties, Ricardo Pereira, Ben Chilwell, James Maddison, Caglar Soyuncu, and Marc Albrighton have to suppress the pain, Leicester City chooses to counterattack in a counterattack in the 2019-2020 season. With 3-5-2, Brendan Rodgers wanted to lock in the middle and split two leading fuses, Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba.

More than the first hour, the match went according to the scenario that Rodgers outlined. His team has little control of the ball, sometimes just over 35% but has more shots and more dangerous situations.

Man Utd received a penalty after Martial falls in Leicester area

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s teachers have many options to approach on the evening of July 26, because with just one point, they will certainly attend the Champions League next season. Even losing, “Red Devils” still have the opportunity to achieve goals if Chelsea stumble before Wolves, the team is also thirsty for the Europa League.

Entering the second half, Man Utd kept the regular kick and almost paid the price 15 minutes after the break. Youri Tielemans free kick brings the ball to Jamie Vardy’s position. In the back turn, the English striker headed backwards, took the ball into the far corner, then touched the crossbar. Three minutes later, Vardy was still in the second ball situation, but his volley went too high.

Leicester had a huge advantage over Chelsea and Man Utd in the top 4 race, but failed to maintain a high performance at the end of the season. At the speed of the French striker, Wes Morgan and Jonny Evans both came in to tackle, causing Martial to fall in the penalty area. After being confirmed by VAR, referee Martin Atkinson gave Man Utd a penalty, and Fernandes easily completed the task.

The tragic series of host crafts continued in the last minutes. In the fourth injury time, Jonny Evans receives a second yellow card. Four minutes later, goalkeeper Schmeichel lost the ball in front of the penalty area, giving the time for Lingard to make the score 2-0. Man Utd retain third place in the final, and Leicester must be satisfied with the Europa League qualification next season.

Man City vs. Liverpool: The battle of honor in the Premier League

Not having a chance to stop Liverpool from winning the Premier League, but Man City still won. This was to keep the style and spirit for the FA Cup and Champions League.

12 years as a professional coach, Pep Guardiola has never once stood in line to welcome the new champions. In part, because he won so much: 8 in 10 seasons ago. The other reason, the two clubs that have surpassed Guardiola-led teams, Real Madrid in 2011-2012 and Chelsea in 2016-2017, have to wait until the end of the 36th round to take the throne.

Liverpool and Man City are the two strongest clubs in England at the moment

Welcome Liverpool tonight brings Guardiola a strange feeling. The same period last season, his students often tape to the finish line and set records. Then this year, Guardiola will lead the team to welcome the new Premier League king.

There is a remarkable detail, the queue to welcome the champion team is not a required ritual. Two years ago, Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was criticized for refusing to wait in line for Barca, then crowned La Liga.

In response, Barca also refused to welcome the world’s number one club in the El Clasico match. This was after Real won the FIFA Club World Cup. Barca said they did not attend this tournament.

The image of City lining up to welcome Liverpool, if it happens tonight, makes many people reminiscent of Man Utd and Chelsea 15 years ago. Meanwhile, “The Blues” in the first season was led by Jose Mourinho winning as splitting bamboos and became the first team after Blackburn Rovers 1994-1995 season, breaking the dominance of “Reds” and Arsenal. The first match after taking the throne, the owner of Stamford Bridge was a guest at Old Trafford and convincing Man Utd 3-1.

However, only two years later, Alex Ferguson’s teachers and students destroyed the unique position of Chelsea. Destiny once again brought the two teams to meet in the 37th round, and the “Hair Dryer” did not forget to prank opponents by lining up many substitutes such as Dong Fangzhou, Chris Eagles, Kieran Lee, Tomasz Kuszczak to browse the team. It includes all Chelsea players such as John Terry, Claude Makelele and Michael Essien.

In terms of the confrontation record in the English Premier League, Man City has the right to confidently win Liverpool in the last two home games. In the last 10 matches at Etihad, the Manchester team also dominated with six wins, three draws and only one loss.
