England: Premier League
Match start: 17:00 (GMT+1)
Only 6-7 weeks are left before the current football season of top national leagues will come to its end. And now the building of new squads that will participate during the next Champions League (season 2017/2018) is held. This is also true if we mention English Premier League.
Chelsea – 75 (31), Tottenham – 68 (31), Liverpool – 63 (32), Manchester City - 61 (31), MU – 57 (30)…
It is obvious that attention will be attracted by the regular battle of two top clubs (Chelsea and MU) in frames of the forthcoming matchday 33. The match will be held at Old Trafford, Manchester .
The team of Antonio Conte is the only leader of the champions’ race for the whole season. But in order to get the official berth to the main part of the next Champions League the team needs to gain 8 more points (83 points needed).
And in order to gain the champions title Chelsea needs to gain 5 more winnings (15 points) during 7 last matches of the season.
Antonio Conte’s bid (3-4-3):
Courtois- Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill- Moses, Matič, Kanté, Alonso-Willian, Diego da Silva Costa, Hazard;
The table position of the team José Mourinho has absolutely different tournament situation. As for now the team has Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimović, Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial, Juan Mata, Michael Carrick, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Ashley Young, Ander a Agüera, Marouane Fellaini and other top class football players but the former coach of London derby, Inter, Milan and Real Madrid is not able to find optimal combination for his mega stars.
José Mourinho’s bid (4-2-3-1):
De Gea- Valencia, Bailly, Rojo, Shaw- Fellaini, Herrera- Lingard, Pogba, Rashford- Ibrahimović;
Injured - Christopher Smalling, Philip Jones, Juan Mata.
Thanks to the constant failures of José Mourinho the main historic grand of EPL is not able to get its place in big Champions League quartet and is still catching the leaders. But as you know the most difficult thing is to wait and to catch up.
The forthcoming home battle with the leader will be difficult for MU. If the team loses even 2 points it can become irreparable. It is obvious that the team of José Mourinho will be struggling to gain the winning. But Chelsea doesn’t plan to lose any points…
Manchester United – 2,80, draw – 3,10, Chelsea – 2,90;
Our tip: both teams to score (yes) - odds 1,91 Will Hill
