Round 28 of the Premier League ended with unsatisfactory EPL highlights results for the giants. In particular, Liverpool has experienced the first time to fail in this 2019/20 season.
Bitter Lose- Liverpool
Important EPL highlights, on a day when the stars of the “Red Brigade” played badly, Liverpool lost 0-3 at Watford. The one who engulfed the defending champion of the Champions League was Ismaila Sarr with 2 goals and 1 assist. Thus, Liverpool officially broke the unbeaten string in the 2019/20 season, missing the opportunity to reproduce Arsenal’s “05/05 Invincible” shot.
This was really a difficult round against the Big Six team. Except for the great battle of Man City – Arsenal was postponed, all the remaining 4 giants did not win. MU bogged 1-1 on Everton’s pitch, while Chelsea was also 2-2 held by Bournemouth. Tragically, coach Jose Mourinho’s Tottenham lost 2-3 very bitterly on Wolves pitch. And the whole team ranked third is Leicester also lost 0-1 at Norwich yard.
The result in round 28 did not change Liverpool’s dominance in the championship race, because even when Man City won against Arsenal, the distance between the leading team and the second-ranked team was 19 points. However, the race to win tickets to the Champions League is becoming hotter than ever, as even Leicester is also in danger of “dropping” in the end of the season.
Leicester is only 5 points ahead of Chelsea. Chelsea is better than MU and Wolves is equal to the distance of a win. If Sheffield wins Aston Villa in the match, they will take the 5th place from MU, and narrow the gap with Chelsea to 2 points. From the 11th to 4th placed teams are now just 8 points behind each other, while the season still has 10 rounds to go. So, the giants will have to be afraid of emerging competitors like Wolves, Sheffield or even Burnley.

With the instability of the big teams, Nuno Santo teachers and students have the opportunity to finish the season in one of the top four positions at the end of the season.
Although Tottenham is 5 points less than the Blues, there is still a chance to get into the Top 4, because the season still has 10 more rounds to close. Opportunities also remain with Sheffield United, Burnley, Everton and Arsenal, who are behind Tottenham on the table.
