Premier League News

 

Although it is less popular than the Champion’s League in England, the Premier League also brings a lot of excitement and anticipation. That’s especially true when the end of the competition approaches and the teams become extra motivated to finish the season in the best way possible.

This is why betting on Premier League can be tricky in the following months. There are plenty of games that bring various possibilities. The best way to get your guesses right is to stay updated with all the matches.

In today’s article, you will find the highlights of the 29th week of the Premier League. It was an interesting one thanks to the match between Manchester United and Manchester City. You will find all the details below, so lose no time and get to it.

Manchester United Defeated Manchester City

Week 29 was rather interesting due to the outcome of the 182nd Manchester derby. Manchester United unexpectedly defeated Manchester City, thus surprising football fans from all over the world.

The odds were against Manchester United before the referee blew his whistle at Old Trafford. No one believed they had any chances of winning the game. However, the final result was 2:0 for the Red Devils.

One reason for such an outcome could be the smart move by Ole Gunnar Solskjær who instructed his players to focus on the defence first. The players listened and managed to protect their goal from United’s attacks.

The only thing they needed was a chance to score, which happened in the 30th minute of the match. Bruno Fernandes used a free kick to assist Anthony Martial who tricked Ederson and scored.

During the second half of the match, Ederson made a fatal mistake. After a successful defence, he threw the ball right in front of McTominay who easily scored and sealed the deal.

Sergio Agüero had one good kick that shook the Devils’ net. Unfortunately, the referee saw that Agüero was in an offside position and the result remained the same. The referee’s decision was right — VAR technology confirmed that the offside occurred.

Pep Guardiola had to congratulate Ole Gunnar Solskjær on this great victory and a well-developed tactic he had come up with.

What Does This Mean for Liverpool?

Liverpool’s fans haven’t been so confident about their favourite team remaining number one until the end of this season. Luckily for them, this weekend secured the team’s standing and gave them a reason for celebration.

Although Liverpool managed to outplay Bournemouth, that wasn’t the only factor that reinforced their position. Another event, or, more precisely, another team contributed to the strengthening of Liverpool’s position.

After the Citizens lost the match against the Red Devils, they became less of a threat to Liverpool in the run for the Championship winner. Liverpool is, at the moment, 25 points ahead of Manchester City. If everything goes as planned, Liverpool’s captain will hold the cup in his hands at the end of this journey.

For this to happen, there are two possible scenarios. The easier one includes the gameplay of Manchester City, again.

Namely, if Manchester City loses the next two matches against Arsenal and Burnley, Liverpool will celebrate without a doubt. In case the Citizens win both games, Liverpool will need only six more points to remain number one.

To construct these predictions, simple math was used. There are ten more games until the end of the competition. Any two games won will bring Liverpool a total score of 88 points. The maximum number of points Manchester City can reach in case they win all the games until the end is 87.

While it is true that the ball is round, it is highly likely that Liverpool will use two of the forthcoming ten games to give their best and get hold of the title. They might even do so before the end of this month, as their first game will be against Everton, followed by a match against Crystal Palace. These two matches should be an easy target for the current leader in the Premier League.

To sum up, Liverpool is one step away from winning the title thanks to some poor decisions of Pep Guardiola and his players. If they successfully finish the season, this will be their most significant year since 1990. The Reds will certainly try hard to be the top-rated team again after thirty years of struggle. To see whether they’ll make it, stay tuned!
