England: Premier League
Match start: 16:00 (GMT+1)
During the final stage of the English season the team of Arsène Wenger was brilliant. As during the first half of May the gunners had won 4 winnings in a row over Manchester United (2:0), Southampton (2:0), Stoke (4:1) and Sunderland (2:0). After this progress Arsenal has managed not only move Manchester United from the 5th line but also has come closer to the 4th Champions League place that is taken by Liverpool. But nevertheless, if during the last home match the team from Merseyside will won over Middlesbrough all the attempts of Arsenal will be useless.
Chelsea – 90 (37), Tottenham – 80 (36), Manchester City – 75 (37), Liverpool – 73 (37), Arsenal – 72 (37) …
Minimum program for the hosts of Anfield
Paradoxical feature of the current position in the tournament of the team of Jürgen Klopp is that Liverpool together with Chelsea and Tottenham can gain the 3rd direct berth into the main UEFA tournament. But also it is possible that it can stay outside Champions League football.
But the team from Merseyside can solve the second question and that is why its participation in the qualification that will be held in August depends on the result of the last home match against Middlesbrough.
So, in order to take the 4th final place the team of Jürgen Klopp has to win over the underdog (that has already left the championship) with the minimal score 1:0.
And now let us determine the most interesting for the hosts of Anfield the program maximum, that is the reshuffle with Manchester City on the 3rd and 4th final positions.
Condition №1 – Josep Guardiola has to lose 2 points during the away match against Watford.
Condition № 2- Liverpool has to win over its opponent with the goal difference of 4 points (4:0, 5:1, 6:2 and so on). And then the team will equal with the citizens by the total number of points and simultaneously will come over City by the best difference of scored and missed goals.
But here is one more interesting condition:
That is the presence total goal difference of the teams of Josep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp. And if, for example, the match Watford – Manchester City will end with the score 0:0, the hosts of Anfield will have to win over Middlesbrough with the difference of 3 goals. Under such results the reds will catch the citizens and will get the advantage on the biggest number of scored goals. So, the most interesting thing is only going to happen…
