Is the pitch at Stamford Bridge really that bad or was Tuchel just looking for an excuse for their home loss to Arsenal?
i'm sure the first part is pure rumor but i'd bet the second part has a bit of truth to it.
Watching Burnley-Watford now. Haven't been able to watch a ton of matches this season except for my Chelsea. But I am fully invested in the end of this season.
- Biggest relegation battle ever? I can't remember another team as big as Everton so close to going down.
-Top 4 race between Spurs and Arsenal.
- Liverpool vs City and Liverpool trying to complete the first ever Quadruple.
Probably the most exciting end to a season in quite a long time. Obviously the year City won it in stoppage time was crazy, but I don't remember if there was any top 4 or relegation battles at the same time. That's what I'm routing for right now. Would make for one crazy day of soccer.
there was also a north london battle going on for 3rd. at the time, 4th place was in the playoff route to UCL while 3rd went directly to group stage. tottenham needed a win plus arsenal draw/loss but both won. and then chelsea won the UCL sending tottenham to the UEL.And Burnley's victory today at Watford makes Everton's relegation battle even tougher. Only potential help Everton could get is that Leeds faces City, Arsenal, and Chelsea in their next 3 matches starting today.
In regards to the year City won the Premier League with the late goal, QPR needed a draw in that match to be assured of safety. It ended up not mattering that day as Bolton, who was behind QPR in the standings, only got a draw that day as well so QPR ended up staying in the Premier League anyway.
Great win!! We just have to hope Richarlison doesn't get suspended for throwing the blue smoke bomb back into the crowd after he scored. COYBWasn't able to watch much after the first 10 minutes as I had to go out of town but it sounds like Pickford played out of his mind to help Everton get the key 3 points over Chelsea today.
Sheffield United defeated Fulham 4:0 and Luton Town defeated Reading 1:0, securing the final two spots in the EFL Championship playoffs. Here are the match-ups for the EFL Championship play-offs:
(6) Luton Town vs. (3) Huddersfield Town
(5) Sheffield United vs. (4) Nottingham Forest
First legs will be played May 13th and 14th with the 2nd legs played May 16th and 17th. Winners of these matches will play in the playoff final at Wembley on May 29th.
Nottingham have some good history, winning 2 European cups...but haven't been in the EPL since 2000.
Luton would be really fun to see go up IMO, simply because their stadium is extremely small. Capacity of 10,000. Brentford have the smallest capacity right now, at 17,000.
