Predict the match result Liverpool vs West Brom

Liverpool has a great opportunity to cut tail to competitors when coach Jurgen Klopp only has to welcome weak opponent West Brom in round 15 of the Premier League.

On the night of last night, the good news came to Liverpool fans when two direct competitors with The Kops in the race to the championship, Leicester and Man Utd, held each other with a score of 2-2. In addition, Chelsea also failed to face the crisis team Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.

That is a favorable condition for coach and coach Jurgen Klopp towards the winter championship to be the hinge for the rest of the season. Liverpool are currently at the top of the table and the distance between them and the second ranked team Everton is 2 points, but the Anfield team has yet to play in the 15th round.

While the Tourmalet with many other big guys in the Premier League is a real nightmare, Liverpool is the name at leisure. They have the largest number of days off between games and also play the least amount of games during this period. In the next week, Liverpool will take turns facing weaker opponents West Brom, Newcastle and Southampton.

The defending champions’ journey to overcome difficulties will begin tonight as they only host West Brom at home. This is the match with the biggest difference in round 15. The guests are ranked in the penultimate position on the standings with exactly 1 victory since the beginning of the season. In addition, this showdown will also see the strongest attacker (Liverpool scored 36 goals) with the second worst defense (West Brom has received a total of 29 goals) of the Premier League at this time.

At the end of last week, live football viewers saw Liverpool show off the strength with a “7-star” victory on the level of nasty rival Crystal Palace. So is there any reason to believe that West Brom will not receive a similar outcome at Anfield tonight?

Prediction of football results: Liverpool 4-0 West Brom.

2020 is a successful year for Man Utd

The statistics show that Man Utd is second only to Liverpool in terms of average points earned in the Premier League in 2020.

Since the day Sir Alex Ferguson retired and gave the field to his juniors, Man Utd has not been able to find the old glory. Despite pouring out a “mountain” of money and bringing in many outstanding military leaders, so far the Reds have not regained the position of a candidate to win the Premier League and the Champions League.

In this season, the instability of Man Utd’s form continues to be shown. The Old Trafford team played quite erratically in the Premier League and was eliminated from the Champions League from the group stage. This makes football experts predict many times that coach Ole Solskjaer’s chair will change hands before the new year of 2021. However, after all, the Norwegian military is still in place.

In fact, although Man Utd cannot succeed in competing for titles, 2020 is still a successful year for coach Solskjaer in the Premier League. Specifically, this year, Solsa and his students played a total of 33 matches in England’s No. 1 tournament and had 20 wins, 7 draws and only 6 defeats. As a result, Man Utd earned an average score of 2.03 points per game per game, just behind defending champions Liverpool with 2.31 points / game.

Solskjaer’s statistics are quite close to what Pep Guardiola does in Man City (with 20 wins). However, the average score that Green Man won is only 2.00 points. The unstable performance is the biggest reason why The Citizen was dethroned by Liverpool last season and is facing many disadvantages this season.

Fourth in this regard is Chelsea coach Frank Lampard. The British rulers have a winning rate of only 50% after 34 matches. Meanwhile, coach Mourinho ranked 6th on this parameter.

Lewandowski ended the hegemony of Ronaldo and Messi

Lewandowski ended the hegemony of Cristiano Ronaldo and Leo Messi, who have won the Champions League top scorer in the last 12 seasons.

The 2019/20 Champions League is remembered when neither Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi could be the top scorer. Instead, Robert Lewandowski won this award after scoring 15 goals.

The loss of the title by Ronaldo and Messi to score the most goals has not happened since the 2006/07 season when Milan beat Liverpool in the final and the leader of the bombing list was Kaka.

The Brazilian has scored 10 goals and won the Golden Ball. Since then, Messi and Ronaldo have shared the award for 12 consecutive seasons.

Leading the scoring list in the history of the Champions League, CR7 has 7 times become the top scorer. His traditional rival Messi has hit five times. Only Neymar in the 2014/15 season scored 10 goals, equaling two stars.

However, Lewandowski was the first to win the top scorer by monopolizing the leading position in scoring. He ended the campaign with 15 goals, 2 less than Ronaldo’s record in a season. However, Bayern played two fewer games than usual.

The Bayern Munich striker has scored 55 goals in all competitions, his record number since the start of his sporting career. Despite turning 32, Lewandowski is experiencing his best moments and his Champions League journey attests to this.

Lewandowski has scored in every game played in the Champions League. He closed the group stage with 10 goals, including a poker shot and two doubles. In the knockout stages, he scored one against Chelsea both in the first and second leg, one against Barca in the quarter-finals and another against Lyon in the semi-finals.

Champions League scorers for this season:

Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich) 15

Erling Haaland (Salzburg, Dortmund) 10

Serge Gnabry (Bayern Munich) 9

Gabriel Jesús (Man City) 6

Raheem Sterling (Man City) 6

Dries Mertens (Napoli) 6

Harry Kane (Tottenham) 6

Memphis Depay (Lyon) 6

Kylian Mbappe (PSG) 5

Helping Real squeeze the narrow door, Zidane opens his mind to the future

After helping the Spanish Royal team reach the eighth round in the final game, the French rulers had to share his future implications.

Real Madrid is one of the names that leaves a lot of disappointment with people who watch football live in the Champions League group stage this season. Los Blancos received two defeats against much underrated opponent Shakhtar Donetsk in both matches. This makes them have no choice but to win all 3 points against Mochengladbach in the morning match this morning to be able to win tickets to the next round. Luckily, Ramos and his teammates accomplished that goal.

In addition to having a place to play in the eighth round, Real Madrid also won first place in Group B because Shakhtar Donetsk got only 1 point in the match at Inter Milan. With this ticket, it is possible that the pressure on coach Zidane over the past time will be reduced somewhat. Before that, there was a lot of speculation about his chair after Real Madrid repeatedly brought undesirable results.

After the match with Mochengladbach, quite a lot of fans evaluated “Zidane’s time was back” and believed that he could completely make a dynasty like Sir Alex Ferguson had built at Man Utd. However, Zidane surprised the audience of the football live by implicitly hinting that he would not stay at the Bernabeu for too long.

Specifically, in the post-match press conference, Coach Zidane said:

“One thing is for sure, I will never be Real Madrid’s Sir Alex. I don’t even know how long I can stay at this job, I haven’t thought about it yet. What makes me happy is to live and work at this club and everyone still believes in me even in the toughest of times”.

This weekend, Real Madrid will have a very important match in La Liga. It was the Madrid match against the neighbor Atletico Madrid. Currently Atletico is the leading team in La Liga this season with 26 points, 6 points more than Real and still 1 game in hand.

Solskjaer commended the Cavani effect on young players

Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had a press conference ahead of MU’s trip to West Ham in Round 11 of the Premier League.

This will be one of the first Premier League matches to welcome fans back to the stadium and Solskjaer is waiting for it.

“I am looking forward to the return of the fans, wait a long time. However, it is important that my players use the energy that the spectators bring, with the next game I want them to listen to the home team fans to create the motivation to keep them quiet. Football cannot be complete without fans, I hope Old Trafford will soon bring fans back”, said Solskjaer.

Regarding the situation of MU forces, the Norwegian coach said that Marcus Rashford, despite having pain in his shoulder, had to leave the field in the defeat of PSG, but he could play normally. “Marcus practiced this morning even though he didn’t do it hard. I hope everything goes well tomorrow morning so I can register him. Luke Shaw is not ready, we are fine”, he revealed.

MU won 4 consecutive matches in the arenas before losing to PSG and that defeat made MU unsure of the ticket to pass the Champions League group stage, causing question marks about the performance of the “Red Devils” and Solskjaer himself reappearing on the newspaper face. However, Solskjaer did not show too much concern, he said that there are matches where the win-lose gap is too close and the last defeat to PSG is not something serious.

“Football is a human game and everyone has their own life, each day will have a bittersweet story. If you look at our record of 40 games in the Premier League, we can say that MU has been very stable. I think we played PSG better than West Brom, but one we won and one we lost, there were results that we couldn’t control and completely adjusted”, commented Solskjaer.

Edinson Cavani played very well to help MU upstream to lower Southampton in the previous round and Solskjaer said he was also creating a positive effect off the pitch. “Last season we were the youngest team in the Premier League but this season has added experienced players. Edinson is a very experienced man, he is a versatile midfielder and not only does it impart a reasonable way to live and extend his career to younger players ”, Solskjaer praised the Uruguayan striker.

While signings such as Cavani, Telles and Van de Beek have gradually been played, two youngsters Facundo Pellestri and Amad Diallo have one not kicked and the other has to start the new year. “Pellestri practiced with the first team and played quite well in the reserve team. We think now will be the time to give him the chance to play, but things will be gradual. Diallo is doing pretty well at Atalanta and we are quickly getting a work permit, he will be a significant addition in January”, Solskjaer revealed.

MU feared because Pogba was seriously injured: Can he return to PSG in time?

Man United are very worried about the injury of star midfielder Paul Pogba. According to many sources, this injury is more complicated than originally predicted.

Manchester United are eagerly awaiting the return of Paul Pogba, at least on the bench, as the season is entering a tough and crucial season. The French star is out of play indefinitely because of a persistent ankle injury since the end of last season.

Pogba has missed two recent matches of Man United because of an ankle problem and according to Sportsmail, the current injury of the French star is more serious than in previous times. It is known that Pogba’s injury has lasted since the end of last season. Despite returning to play, the 27-year-old midfielder still hurts sometimes and relapses.

The 2018 World Cup champion has undergone surgery in January to completely resolve an ankle injury, but MU medical staff still recommends extreme caution in using Pogba.

Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed that his pupil had suffered an ankle inflammation in a complicated level, causing this player to be sidelined in recent years.

It is not excluded that MU will continue to lack Pogba in the confrontation with Southampton this weekend (9pm, November 29). Even the opportunity for Pogba to participate in the match against PSG next week (3pm, 3/12) is also open due to the relatively slow recovery of this star.

Coach Solskjaer is gradually getting used to arranging a squad without Pogba. The Norwegian strategist is confident that MU will maintain his strength despite not having the service of the French midfielder. Pogba caused controversy when he said that he was more inspired to play when he focused on France, which this player did not have at MU.

However, the level of the former Juventus star is still unquestionable and MU still hopes that one day, Pogba will be revived to help “Red Devils” realize his ambitions.

Barca, Real and Liverpool in the Top 10 best selling players in the last 10 years

Transfermarkt data shows that in the past 10 years only two clubs worldwide have earned more than 1 billion euros from selling players.

Benfica and Atletico Madrid are two rare clubs that have earned more than 1 billion euros from selling players in the past 10 years according to Transfermarkt data.

In particular, Benfica is the best dealer in the world when he earned about 1.1 billion euros from the sale of 427 stars in the past decade.

Even this summer, Benfica still made about 70 million euros from the sale of Ruben Dias to Man City, although the club’s finances were affected by the COVID-19 epidemic. Last year, they grossed more than 200 million euros after selling Joao Felix, Raul Jimenez and Luka Jovic.

In the past 10 years, Benfica has also earned hundreds of millions of euros from the sale of other stars such as Ederson, Nelson Semedo, Victor Lindelof, Renato Sanches, Jan Oblak, Nemanja Matic, Axel Witsel, Fabio Coentrao, Angel di Maria, David Luiz or Ramires.

Another club that also makes more than 1 billion euros is Atletico Madrid. They earned 1.048 billion by selling top stars like Antoine Griezmann, Diego Costa, Radamel Falcao, Lucas Hernandez, Rodri, Sergio Aguero, David de Gea or Thomas Partey.

But Atletico Madrid is different from Benfica in that spending money to buy players is more than the proceeds from the sale of stars. In the past 10 years, they have lost about 50 million euros from buying and selling players.

The three clubs Juventus, Chelsea and Monaco are ranked next in the Top 10 best selling football clubs.

Juventus sold the most number of players in the world in the past 10 years at 582 people. Pogba brought in the largest revenue of 105 million euros. Meanwhile, Chelsea made the most of selling Eden Hazard to Real Madrid last summer for a fee of up to 165 million euros.

On the side of Monaco, they made up to 347 million euros from the sale of four young talents Kylian Mbappe, Thomas Lemar, James Rodriguez and Anthony Martial.

The two giants Barca and Real Madrid are only ranked seventh in terms of player sales, but the quality of their stars is unquestionable.

Barca still made 948 million euros, despite selling only 148 players. Neymar alone contributed up to 222 million euros when breaking the transfer record for PSG in the summer of 2017. But Barca still lost 674 million euros because of innocent and ineffective shopping in the past 10 years.

Similarly, Real Madrid earned 905 million euros, despite selling only 138 players. The best deals include Cristiano Ronaldo (105 million euros) or Angel di Maria (75 million euros).

Liverpool is only ranked 10th on the list of best selling football clubs with 803 million euros in revenue. Their biggest deals are Philippe Coutinho (€ 145 million), Luis Suarez (€ 80 million) and Raheem Sterling (€ 63 million).

Meanwhile, MU, Arsenal, Man City, Bayern Munich or Dortmund are not even in the Top 10.

Top 10 clubs making the most money from selling players in the past 10 years

1. Benfica – 1.1 billion euros

2. Atletico Madrid – 1.048 billion euros

3. Juventus – 990 million euros

4. Chelsea – 974 million euros

5. Monaco – 954 million euros

6. Barca – 948 million euros

Tottenham dropped second in the Premier League, Mourinho easily overthrew Liverpool? (Part 2)

The line of attacking players coach Jose Mourinho has in hand at Tottenham is quite large with Harry Kane’s position of striker Carlos Vinicius ready to replace, while Son Heung Min, Lucas Moura, Erik Lamela, Steven Bergwijn and Gareth Bale contests the wing striker positions. Mourinho is therefore always capable of flinging in 1-2 strikers from the bench in a match to turn a deadlock.

However, the fact that even strong teams cannot rely on the depth of force to go far in every tournament, apart from the physical issue, the play style of clubs is very difficult to promote because the players have very little time to get to know each other before the season, mainly based on real combat experience through each game that of course cannot be equal to on the training ground with the direct shaping of the coaches.

So if Tottenham continues to maintain a high position on the Premier League standings in the next 10 rounds, then they might think about “letting go” in 1-2 cup competitions. The Europa League will still be Mourinho’s priority, but the League Cup and the FA Cup are two fronts where Spurs’ chance to win seems more. Mourinho always attaches importance to the League Cup, so he will face a difficult problem.

The season nevertheless just went through 7 rounds and usually it takes half of the season for the races to become clearer. Not to mention the upcoming Tottenham schedule is extremely difficult: Man City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Palace, Liverpool, Leicester and Wolves, not including the European Cup matches.

But Tottenham have got off to a very good start and will not be too surprised if they compete for the championship. It will still be a big surprise if they go all the way and finish first with the throne, because Liverpool, even in the heart of the hurricane, still finds a way to win.

Tottenham dropped second in the Premier League, Mourinho easily overthrew Liverpool? (Part 1)

Tottenham has risen to second place in the Premier League and is capable of winning the throne of Liverpool.

Tottenham won a rather strenuous 2-1 victory over Brighton thanks to a Gareth Bale goal, scoring after he came on from the bench just over 2 minutes. With a victory over an opponent that has made it difficult for nearly every team they have met since the start of the season, Spurs have now taken second place and are behind defending champions Liverpool by 2 points.

Tottenham this season still has bad matches, from being beaten by Everton to losing points to West Ham and Newcastle. But there is the fact that after 7 rounds, they are scoring the most in the Premier League while 9 goals are not too bad (the team that conceded the least, Arsenal, also conceded 7 goals).

Premier League 2020/21 will be a volatile season because the Covid-19 makes the schedule of this season more intense, the European Cup teams have to try to play in 3-4 fronts at the same time and because They have to rotate the formation. This season the injury situation has increased significantly while the big teams have shown more or less fatigue and the rule of replacing five reserves has been dropped, some clubs like Everton or Aston Villa have risen to the top although They are not really special about the gameplay yet.

In the context of that a surprise Leicester City 2015/16 style championship is entirely possible, the only question is whether Tottenham can do it. This season they have added a lot of quality players and have considerable depth in the attack line, plus the high form of the key players.

The depth factor is the most remarkable because Tottenham cannot always rely on 1-2 individuals to create mutations in every match. Harry Kane and Son Heung Min have been in very good form since the beginning of the season, but against Brighton, Son proved quite quiet while Kane did not have many opportunities. Tottenham still won thanks to Gareth Bale’s presence on the field.

Mourinho is angry because he lost to the Belgian club

Mourinho has expressed frustration on social media after Tottenham lost to Royal Antwerp.

Tottenham were defeated 0-1 at the hands of Royal Antwerp in the second match of the Europa League group stage. Launching a full-fledged squad, Tottenham did not play as sharp as usual and Ben Davies made a personal mistake that caused Lior Refaelov to score the only goal for the Belgian side.

Coach Jose Mourinho at the post-match press conference admitted his responsibility for this defeat, especially after the fact that he replaced up to 4 players in the first half of halftime shows that the starting lineup he launched out did not work. “I even wanted to change 11 people after the first half, and I didn’t change 5 because I was afraid the next 45 minutes would be very long. There was only one person at fault in this, I was the starting lineup,” he said.

However, Mourinho also proved quite annoyed with the players he trusted on the field and after the game, “The Special One” even made a strange move to Instagram a photo of himself sitting in the car. the team bus. Mourinho accompanied the photo with the comment: “Bad stones deserve bad results. Hope everyone on this car is as irritable as me. Tomorrow training starts at 11:00.

The time the photo was taken is at 9pm and Tottenham then took a night flight back to London, scheduled to arrive this morning October 30. The players then had to go home to rest before returning to the training ground at 11 o’clock, so the time frame was quite limited and it can be said that today’s training session will be like a penalty for the whole Tottenham team for the loss.

The four players replaced by Mourinho in the middle of the half were Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli, Steven Bergwijn and Carlos Vinicius. But of these, Dele Alli was especially criticized after the match. Besides, Harry Winks also played very badly and was even named as the player who contributed to the shocking 3-3 draw against West Ham on October 18.
