Spectacular English Premier 2019/20: MU top 3 is the biggest surprise? (Part 1)

The English Premier League season 2019/20 witnessed a lot of surprises from the top form of the new Liverpool king or the spectacular acceleration of MU and Chelsea to complete the Champions League goal.

“New King” Liverpool upstream, howling to score record milestones 

After last season to 97 points but still ranked second runner-up in the Premiership when the champions City 1 point behind the team, Liverpool had a perfect “hatred”. This season, “The Kop” has regained the Premier League throne from the hands of teachers and Pep Guardiola, they even set the championship record as early as 7 rounds.

Liverpool’s 30-year limit without winning the England national championship ended when, for the first time in the Premier League era, the “Merseyside Red Brigade” crowned the tournament. Unfortunately, teachers and students Jurgen Klopp failed to break the record for most points in a season in the English Premier League like Man City (100 points in 2017/18).

However, the Anfield team can still be satisfied to win the most points in the history of this club when it reached 99 points in the Premier League in 2019/20 season. Liverpool leveled the record of 32 victories in a season in the English Premier League as Man City when the army of coach Jurgen Klopp has twice done this in the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons.

MU and Chelsea finished top 4: The cool hand of the young general, or the opponent “shot himself”?

In January this year, Manchester City was dropped by 14 points from Leicester City in the English Premier League rankings and even the most optimistic “Reds” fans did not dare to think of a dramatic, amazing top 4 racing scenario. So between their pet team, “Foxes” and Chelsea .

What will happen to MU and Chelsea if Wolves win the Europa League?

The fate of MU and Chelsea will be like if Wolves win the Europa League is a problem that many football fans care about.

In early August, Wolves and other representatives of English football will return to the continental arena to kick the unfinished part. Particularly “Wolves”, after a 1-1 draw in the first leg, they will rematch Olympiakos in the second round of the Europa League round 1/8.

For many people, the fact that Wolves is still present in the knockout round of the prestigious second tournament in the club-age continent is quite unexpected. However, looking at the force that coach Nuno Espírito Santo has in hand, and how they knocked down Espanyol in the round of 16, it is not surprising that Wolves make a deal in this tournament.

Of course, if one can advance to the final and then crowned, coach Santo’s team will automatically win a place in the Champions League next season. This rule applies from the 2015/16 season. 

The question is raised by many, what will the fate of MU and Chelsea if Wolves win the Europa League? The answer is okay, “Red Devils” and the Blues will still be present in the Champions League next season despite UEFA giving a ticket to “Wolves”.

AC Milan giành vé dự Europa League mùa sau

According to the UEFA allocation, the Premier League has a maximum of 5 Champions League places in case one of their representatives wins the Europa League. Because Wolves are outside the Top 4, 4 tickets of Liverpool (champion), Man City (runner-up), MU (3rd) and Chelsea (4th) are not affected.

Three years ago, the Premier League also had five representatives to the Champions League after MU defeated Ajax in the 2016/17 Europa League final. That season, the “Red Devils” finished sixth in the Premier League. 

How can Arsenal make Tottenham lose interest in the European Cup?

Arsenal have lost to Tottenham in the recent north London derby but they can take revenge by helping their opponents lose their place in the European Cup.

Arsenal will face Chelsea in the FA Cup final and winning will guarantee Europa League qualification next season. This means that 5th and 6th places in the Premier League are also featured in the European Cup.

However, tickets to the European Cup are not for 7th place, where Tottenham are standing in the rankings.

If Chelsea win the FA Cup and make it to the top 4, the 7th place will be attending the Europa League. Of course, Mourinho’s teachers and students can still finish the season in 6th place, but they need Wolves to stumble.

There are three possible scenarios in the final matches that will see Tottenham take sixth place. The first is if Spurs beat Crystal Palace and Wolves draw Chelsea. Second, they won Palace and Wolves lost to Chelsea. In the end, Spurs drew Palace and Wolves lost to Chelsea.

But if Arsenal win the FA Cup and Tottenham finish the season in seventh place, Mikel Arteta and the students will cost their neighboring rivals about 40 million pounds due to not attending the European Cup.

Of course Arsenal need to win the FA Cup to reach the Europa League after they can only finish the Premier League season in the highest position is 8th with a defeat last night against Aston Villa.

6 scenarios for 6th place overall:

Tottenham won Palace, Wolves beat Chelsea = WOLVES

Tottenham win Palace, Wolves draw Chelsea = TOTTENHAM

Tottenham won Palace, Wolves lost to Chelsea = TOTTENHAM

Tottenham lost to Palace, Wolves beat Chelsea = WOLVES

Tottenham lost to Palace, Wolves drew Chelsea = WOLVES

Tottenham lost to Palace, Wolves lost to Chelsea = WOLVES

Tottenham drew Palace, Wolves beat Chelsea = WOLVES

Tottenham drew Palace, Wolves lost to Chelsea = TOTTENHAM

Tottenham draw Palace, Wolves draw Chelsea = WOLVES

Will Ronaldo go to PSG to become the Qatar World Cup ambassador?

Cristiano Ronaldo could come to PSG in the future when the Qatar owners want this star to become the World Cup ambassador of 2022.

According to France Football, PSG is preparing to launch a revolution in the upcoming transfer market with the dream of bringing Cristiano Ronaldo.

This is partly reflected in the praise of PSG President, Nasser Al Khelaifi in an interview with France Football: “He (Ronaldo) always exceeds the limit, is an example for all athletes of future”.

The future here is understood as the 2022 World Cup in Doha, Qatar that they want CR7 to be the ambassador for the tournament.

To date, the ambassador selected to promote the World Cup in Qatar in 2022 is Neymar. The Brazilian striker came from Barcelona for 222 million euros in 2017 but PSG had to spend a total of more than 400 million, including the highest salary in the world of 36.8 million per year.

Neymar has no intention of staying with PSG for a long time and the Arabs can hardly stand the trouble he causes both on and off the pitch. In particular, the 28-year-old collection has discredited after efforts to return to Barca at any cost last summer.

Now, Neymar is allowed to free himself from his contract (expiring in 2021) by using Article 17 of FIFA. But that probably won’t be necessary because once the love between the two sides has ended long ago, the best solution is to break up.

At this point, Qatari people wonder who can replace Neymar to become ambassador for Qatar 2022? The only two names that really are of interest are Messi and Ronaldo. But a transfer of Messi from Barcelona has so far been ruled out because of the impossibility.

Therefore, the person that PSG needs is Ronaldo. He will become the perfect image of the professional level (in opposition to Neymar), physically intact and famous.

Juventus paid Real Madrid about 100 million transfer fees and a salary of 31 million euros for Ronaldo. At the age of 35, the Portuguese striker has a market value of about 70 million, too large figure in the context of being affected by COVID-19. But for PSG owners, this problem is easier to solve.

Liverpool surpassed MU to top the greatest championship ranking

Liverpool have surpassed MU to win first place in the rankings of the greatest Premier League championships.

Liverpool overcame MU to become the team to win the greatest Premier League title. This is the result of an election held by Sky Sport today after Liverpool won their first Premier League title for the first time.

Up to now, about 3,900 readers have chosen Liverpool to lead the rankings of the greatest English Premier League championships. The championship this season of Klopp’s teachers and students was scored higher than the second title of MU in the 2007/08 season, with 2,400 votes.

Ranked 3rd is the championship with Arsenal’s unbeaten record in the 2003/04 season, with about 2,100 votes.

Of course, every election will be controversial and this time is no exception. Many Man City fans are annoyed when the spectacular comeback of this team against Liverpool in the 2013/14 season only ranked last.

Similarly, Man City’s dramatic victory over MU in the 2011/12 season only ranked last. Meanwhile, Leicester’s tinted championship title in the 2015/16 season is ranked 5th on this list.

Liverpool had to wait for 30 years to wear out. But this Liverpool championship is more convincing than any other title. The team of coach Jurgen Klopp won the Premiership title at the earliest history, 7 rounds earlier.  

Since the beginning of the season, Liverpool have only dropped three times, including 2 draws MU, Everton and Watford defeat.

Now, Liverpool are aiming to break the championship record with Man City’s highest score, 100 points. Currently, the new Premier League king has 86 points and they need to win at least 15 points out of a maximum of 21 points in the last 7 rounds to set a new record.

Pogba and Fernandes, a couple full of debt

Contrary to the worries of fans, Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes quickly showed that they were a couple of “debtors”.

There was an opinion that MU should put Pogba on the transfer floor after having Fernandes. Because of his special personality, the French midfielder can hardly create a happy “marriage” with Fernandes.

However, contrary to the worries of fans, Pogba and Fernandes have shown that they are a couple of debtors. 

The “marriage” between the world’s top two midfielders was first tested for fire in the last 30 minutes of the 1-1 draw with Tottenham. At Tottenham Stadium, Pogba earned an 11-meter goal to help Fernandes grab a point for the “Red Devils“.

A few days later, the perfect combination of Pogba and Fernandes in midfield is the launch pad for Anthony Martial to flourish with a hat-trick, engulfing annoying opponent Sheffield United. 

By the match against Norwich last night, the French midfielder and former Sporting Lisbon player continued to have the same coordination as the ball for more than 40 minutes playing together. 

Before Pogba was launched in the 78th minute, Fernandes could not find a familiar partner to support, distribute the ball and showed little creative role. Consequently, MU encountered many difficulties in penetrating the Norwich defense. 

The perfect combination of Pogba with Fernandes is helping coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer be very optimistic with future plans. Now he can put aside concerns Pogba and Fernandes stomped on each other in the “Red Devils” squad.

In fact, Pogba and Fernandes can perfectly pair together. If the Norwegian strategist wants to use a three-man midfield, it could be Pogba, Fernandes and Scott McTominay. 

In the case of MU playing with 4 midfielders, Pogba and McTominay will assume the role of central midfielder, while Fernandes jumps up right after the two forwards.

Total goals scored by Ronaldo and Messi in World Cup history

Update the total goals of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in World Cup history.

Ronaldo and Messi are the two players who have dominated the global playing field for over a decade. Together, they both won 11 Golden Balls and scored nearly 1,500 goals. In particular, El Pulga is only less than CR7 once tearing the opponent’s net (724 versus 725).

At the World Cup arena, Ronaldo and Messi have participated in four times, including 2006, 2010, 2014 and 2018. Unfortunately, the Barca striker and striker who is playing for Juventus has never once joined the national team to the top of glory.

Tổng số bàn thắng của Ronaldo và Messi trong lịch sử World Cup

At his first appearance in 2006, Messi scored a goal in Argentina’s 6-0 triumph over Serbia & Montenegro. Ronaldo did the same, when “shooting” set Portugal’s 2-0 victory over Iran.

At the 2010 World Cup, El Pulga was suddenly silent, while CR7 scored 1 goal. 4 years later in Brazil, Messi exploded with 4 goals, helping Argentina to the final. Like the previous two World Cups, Ronaldo proved unfortunate when only once tore the opponent’s net.

In contrast to the 2014 World Cup, at the largest football festival on the planet 2 years ago, Ronaldo competed. The Juventus player has 4 goals, 3 of which are against Spain. Meanwhile, Messi scored only 1 goal against Nigeria.

Thus, through 4 World Cups, the superstar duo scored a total of 13 goals (Messi 6, Ronaldo 7). Of course, that number doesn’t stop when Ronaldo and Messi are expected to shine at the 2022 World Cup.

Statistics of matches Messi scored:

June 16, 2006: Argentina vs Serbia & Montenegro: 6-0 (1 goal)

June 15, 2014: Argentina vs Bosnia: 2-1 (1 goal)

June 21, 2014: Argentina vs Iran: 1-0 (1 goal)

June 21, 2014: Argentina vs Nigeria: 3-2 (2 goals)

Chelsea must sell 6 players to buy 4 expensive stars

Chelsea need to buy 3 more stars after having Ziyech, but they must also sell at least 6 players to make these costly expenses.

Chelsea paid £ 37 million to buy winger Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and now proceed to complete the transfer of Timo Werner from Leipzig for a fee of £ 53 million.

Coach Frank Lampard was also given the green light by the club’s management team for Leverkusen’s attacking midfielder Kai Havertz and Leicester full-back Ben Chilwell.

If you make all the contracts, the spending of the Blues in the summer can be up to nearly 250 million pounds. But this cost will be partially offset by the liquidation of surplus players.

Emerson Palmieri, Davide Zappacosta, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Michy Batshuay, Daniel Drinkwater, and Victor Moses all know that they are not in Lampard’s plan.

The player Chelsea can earn the most is Bakayoko, who spent the club 40 million pounds 3 years ago.

Bakayoko is earning £ 110,000 a week and can go to AC Milan on a permanent deal after having spent a season on loan here. Of course, the Blues have a significant discount for this midfielder.

Left-back Emerson is also likely to come to Italy while being the target of both Juventus and Inter Milan. However, selling right-back Zappacosta is more difficult when he is recovering from a long-term injury.

Similarly, the value of Drinkwater has dropped compared to when it was purchased from Leicester for £ 35 million. Chelsea certainly have to accept heavy losses to get rid of players who no longer have any role for the team.

In the strikers, Batshuayi is also on his way out as only an option after Werner, Tammy Abraham and Olivier Giroud.

In the case of Moses, Chelsea may have to reduce the price of 10 million pounds for Inter Milan to buy off as an option after a loan season.

Did Ronaldo miss any individual awards since leaving Real Madrid?

Cristiano Ronaldo has missed a lot of individual awards since leaving Real Madrid to switch to Juventus from the summer of 2018.

Cristiano Ronaldo left Real Madrid to switch to Juventus from the summer of 2018. After that, he helped the Bianconeri successfully defend the Serie A championship and win the Italian Super Cup 2018.

The Portuguese striker himself also received the Player of the Year award in the 2018/19 season. But that is all Ronaldo receives after nearly 2 years playing in Italy.

This achievement is much worse than the time CR7 played for Real Madrid. The Portuguese striker has reaped countless individual awards, notably four Golden Balls, the most prestigious individual award.

But after Ronaldo moved to Juventus, the Golden Ball 2018 was awarded to Luka Modric, another Real Madrid player who won the Champions League and led the Croatia team to the World Cup final. Then the Golden Ball 2019 belonged to Lionel Messi. Similarly, Modric and Messi are also the two closest players to win The Best of FIFA.

In the European Player of the Year award, Ronaldo won for the last time in 2016/17 and lost in the last two seasons after parting with Real Madrid. During this time, the honor goes to Modric and Van Dijk.

Since moving to Juventus, Ronaldo has not won the European Golden Shoe, a prize he received three times with Real Madrid.

In addition, Ronaldo also had up to 6 times the top scorer in the Champions League in Real Madrid but he failed the season before Juventus stopped in the quarter-finals.

Now, Robert Lewandowski is leading both races for the European Golden Boot and the European Cup Top Scorer with a great distance from Ronaldo.

Even Ronaldo could not win in the Serie A top scorer race after Fabio Quagliarella last season. Now, the Juventus striker is also 6 goals behind Ciro Immobile this season.

What will the squad be like if Saul Niguez is recruited?

MU have contacted Saul Niguez as a top transfer target this summer. If successful, Solskjaer coach can be classified into 3 different options.

Saul with diagrams 4-3-3

MU has operated this diagram regularly since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over and it’s easy to understand why Saul will be given a position in that system.

Atletico Madrid midfielder will then play the role of a left midfielder, becoming an ideal element to cooperate with Paul Pogba, while Bruno Fernandes is free to play more attacking.

Saul will need to perform a lot of defensive work if deployed in such a scheme, especially when this squad is too prone to attack.

Saul with a 4-4-2 diagram

Solskjaer has had a lot of experience with this scheme since he was playing under Sir Alex Ferguson. So, he can test it out for himself if he has an outstanding right-winger in the summer.

MU currently has many options on the left of midfield, but it’s fair to say that no one else has the quality defensive ability like Saul.

At Atletico Madrid, coach Diego Simeone frequently uses this squad in major European Cup matches with Saul deployed on the left. It seems to be a suitable choice for MU when meeting strong opponents.

Saul with diagrams 3-5-2 

This is a scheme that Solskjaer often likes to switch to during difficult matches and it is also suitable for Saul.

The Spanish midfielder’s flexibility helps him transform into a left-winger or move into play as a central midfielder.

With one more center-back in the squad, Saul will reduce his defensive responsibilities in midfield. Therefore, this scheme may suit you best out of the 3 options on the squad.
