England – Premier League.
Match start: 15:05 (GMT+1)
The peculiarity of modern English football is the fact that at the end of the season - at the end of April and beginning of May – the majority of the clubs accumulate definite number of catch-up matches, and that is why the Premier League tournament bracket reminds us the tournament brackets of NHL and KHL. And now after match played on last Thursday and before the start of matchday 35 EPL champions race is as follow:
Chelsea – 78 (33), Tottenham – 74 (33), Liverpool – 66 (34), Manchester City – 65 (33), MU – 64 (33), Arsenal – 60 (32), Everton – 58 (34)…
Antonio Conte’s team
After its defeat at 33 matchday at Old Trafford (2:0) Chelsea at home arena had won over Tottenham at semifinal match of FA Cup and then at catch-up match it had won over Southampton with the same score (4:2).
Now the total score of the team of Antonio Conte is 78 points and Chelsea continues its leadership at champions’ race. And the team had come to Liverpool to play against the hosts of Goodison Park without any squad losses.
The team of Ronald Koeman
Everton has some losses in its squad: Séamus Coleman, Ramiro Mori, James McCarthy, Yannick Bolasie and Aaron Lennon. It is obvious that such losses are very serious.
But its main task the football club has already fulfilled. It won’t get lower than 7th line as West Bromwich that is taking now the 8th line is 14 points behind Everton. And the new owner of the League Cup Manchester United and two finalists of the FA Cup Chelsea and Arsenal have already ensured to Everton the berth to the Europa League by their higher table positions. By the way, the coach of the Merceyside club can start his new season as the coach of Barcelona.
From year to year the second club by its status in Merseyside gains the largest amount of its points playing at home arena. And that is why all EPL favorites know that it is very hard to win over Everton at Goodison Park.
But still, now bearing in mind the extreme motivation of guests and practically absolute loss of the motivation of the hosts the bet on Chelsea winning is absolutely clear.
Everton – 3,80, draw – 3,60, Chelsea – 2,20;
