In the last calendar match of the 36th EPL round that was held on the 30th of April , the vice-champion of last season Tottenham at Wembley hosted Watford and has won quite predictable victory with the score (2:0). Bamidele Alli (16th minute) and Harry Kane (48 minute) became the heroes of the hosts.
After this victory the Spurs had not only pulled away from Chelsea that takes the fifth place but also had come very close to Liverpool third position which is completely absorbed by the semifinal battle against Roma in the Champions League now.
Tournament position of the leaders of EPL
For a long time the squad of the big Champions League quartet of the Premier League is invariable:
Manchester City – 93 (35), MU – 77 (35), Liverpool – 72 (36), Tottenham – 71 (35), Chelsea – 66 (35)…
As we see, now the border of getting of the English favorites into the next group stage of club championship of Europe is 75 points. Chelsea can score such number of points if in three left matches will give the maximum outcome.
The most important battle at Stamford Bridge
But Manchester United after Sunday victory over Arsenal London (2:1), has already officially confirmed the participation in the new Champions League tournament.
And now, on the first Sunday of May at the capital arena Stamford Bridge there will take place the match between Chelsea and Liverpool. Of course, not only its winner but also the team of Mauricio Pochettino will get the advantage from the result of this fight. If Chelsea wins, Tottenham will move to the third position. And if the victory is won by Liverpool, the question of building the big Champions League quartet will be finally closed.
Tottenham in the 37th round will play away match with the main loser of the season West Bromwich. The team has managed to stay in the EPL for eight seasons in a row, since summer 2010. However this time even the miracle won’t save the hosts of Hawthorns from going into the Championship. It is obvious that the bright favorite of the forthcoming meeting is clear. And here the possible victory of the guests raises no doubts.
West Bromwich – 8.50, draw – 4.75, Tottenham – 1.35;
