Match start: 21:00 (GMT+1)
During the last super battle of the 13th round of EPL Liverpool – Chelsea in 5 minutes to the end of normal time the team of Jurgen Klopp had managed to lose the gained victory (1:1).
According to the experts and analysts of English football, the reasons of one more failure made by the Reds are really weak level of game of defense line and the problem of misbalanced different lines. This is the factor that doesn’t allow the hosts of Anfield to reach the level of game of Manchester City and Manchester United even having in its squad the A-list star players.
Champion’s race of the EPL
As of the writing of this match prediction we still don’t know the results of Sunday matches Burnley – Arsenal and Huddersfield – Manchester City. We doubt that these results will be able to influence significantly on the current position of the team of Jurgen Klopp:
Manchster City – 34, MU – 29, Chelsea – 26, Tottenham – 24, Liverpool – 23, Arsenal – 22, Burnley – 22 …
As we see, the team of Josep Guardiola has pulled away. And the grandee from Merseyside with the company of other favorites will be fighting for the place at Top 4.
The nearest calendar plan
