How will Chelsea and Man United race the top 4 in the last 9 rounds?
The full 38 rounds mean that the Champions League qualifying clubs will continue their struggles this Premier League 2020 season, while Liverpool is only waiting for two more victories to secure the championship and still have a chance. broke Man City’s 100-point record for the 2017/18 season. The relegation race will also have to be determined when teams from the bottom 15 are in danger.
Liverpool championship is something that is just waiting for time, and with this decision, the championship trophy will be difficult to escape from their hands. But the top 4 race is quite intense: Chelse in fourth place is just 3 points behind MU, while Wolves and Sheffield United are only 2 points less than Man United and Sheffield has 1 game yet. Tottenham have 41 points and Arsenal have 40 points, these two teams are still not out of chance.
In the remaining rounds, Arsenal and Sheffield United are the teams with the heaviest schedules, Sheffield faces up to 4 teams competing for the top 4 plus the third-ranked team Leicester City, while Arsenal plays both the top 3 and Tottenham and Wolves. Tottenham is only slightly lighter when they meet MU, Sheffield, Arsenal and Leicester, while Chelse faces Man City, Liverpool, Sheffield & Wolves.
Wolves and MU are the lightest schedules, each team only meets 3 strong opponents: MU vs Tottenham, Sheffield, and Leicester, while Wolves play Arsenal, Sheffield and Chelse. MU & Wolves’ schedule is relatively easy to breathe but Wolves often have problems in matches against weaker teams, so the opportunity will be MU‘s to chase Chelse.
Man United, of course, hope on the Chelseslipping in the remaining rounds to overcome, but they must also take care of themselves first. Scoring 27 maximum points in the last 9 rounds is actually a workable goal, but in Premier League history only 5 teams can do this (as shown below), including 3 champions and 2 teams of Liverpool also have other titles in the season (FA Cup 2005/06 season, Champions League season 2018/19), which Man United can hardly say now is comparable to the powerful teams in the past.
