General chronicle of matchday 36 in the 2020/21 Premier League

Although Manchester City have already been proclaimed champions and we already know the three teams that go down to the second division, there is still a lot to decide in the Premier League. The places in Europe, both in the Champions League, the Europa League and the Conference League, are still up in the air. And if this were not enough, we must bear in mind that the Premier League is a competitive league where all matches have a value, both sporting and economic.

Newcastle United 3-4 Manchester City

Matchday 36 started on Friday afternoon with a fun match at St James’ Park between Newcastle United and the already champion Manchester City.

Swede Emil Krafth scored the first goal of the match for the host team in the 26th minute. Two goals by Joao Cancelo and Ferran Torres in 3 crazy minutes at the end of the first half seemed to give Pep’s team the lead, but a Joelinton’s penalty at 45 + 6 left the score in a tie at half-time.

Despite Newcastle’s third goal, Pep’s team rallied after two more goals from Ferran Torres. The Valencian’s hat-trick – his second of the season, after having achieved it in a match with the Spanish national team, – sentenced the match and gave Pep’s men much relief.

Despite conceding three goals, Manchester City goalkeeper Scott Carson will be happy to have played a Premier League game 10 years after the last time.

Burnley 0-4 Leeds United

Marcelo Bielsa’s men are having a good end to the season after victories against Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspurs in recent weeks. With 53 points scored, Leeds could still be in the sixth period.

Although this is unlikely, it can already be said that they have had a brilliant season on their return to the English first division. Spanish striker Rodrigo scored two of the goals in this emphatic victory.

Burnley meanwhile is safe from relegation and can begin to think about reinforcing the squad for next season, which would be his sixth in a row played in the top flight.

Southampton 3-1 Fulham

Southampton are part of a group of teams that are safe from relegation and cannot qualify to play in Europe either. Still, it is important that they continue to compete to the end (for pride, for competitive reasons, and for financial reasons). In fact, the Saints can still stay in any premier position between 12 and 17.

Fulham has struggled all season to stay, but before the game we knew that they would be back in the second division next year.

Brighton 1-1 West Ham

If the task of qualifying for the Champions League was going to be difficult for West Ham, this draw makes it even more so now. David Moyes’s set needs a miracle: Specifically, they have to win the remaining two games, hope that both Chelsea and Liverpool lose both games and that Tottenham win neither of their two games either.

Brighton, even though they are 17th on the table, have had a good campaign and coach Graham Potter continues to receive positive feedback for their style of football.

Crystal Palace 3-2 Aston Villa

Sunday’s games began with a Crystal Palace comeback against Aston Villa that also served to showcase the competitiveness of English football. The visiting team was leading 2-1 until the 75th minute, thanks to goals from McGinn and El Ghazi.

But a goal from Zaha and the young Mitchell gave the victory to Roy Hodgson’s team. Aston Villa’s losing streak continues to stop, but generally Dean Smith can be proud of this successful season.

Tottenham 2-0 Wolves

Since the dismissal of José Mourinho and the defeat in the Carabao Cup final, Tottenham has only thought about one thing: win all the matches and get all the possible points. Then they will think about who will be the new coach.

And another goal from Harry Kane and one from Hojberg means Spurs are five points behind Chelsea. But they are leaving it too late. The only thing is that Chelsea play a tough game against Leicester on Tuesday.

Wolves can only overtake one team (Aston Villa, in the 11th period) but both Crystal Palace and Southampton can finish higher than Nuno Espirito Santo’s team. They will try to prevent that from happening.

West Brom 1-2 Liverpool

Regardless of what happens during the last few days, the game between West Brom and Liverpool will end up being one of the most remembered in recent times.

With the score at 1-1 in the 90th minute, and Klopp’s team needing another goal to continue to have a chance to qualify for the Champions League, goalkeeper Allison went up to the area when they called for a corner.

They threw it and the Brazilian marked with his head. And I don’t just score a goal. It was an authentic goal.

This is the Premier.

Everton 0-1 Sheffield United

To end the day, Everton lost 1-0 to Sheffield United who scored only their sixth win of the season.

Carlo Ancelotti’s team still has a chance to qualify for the Europa League, and the Italian can generally be happy with his team’s performance.

But defeats like this don’t help this ambitious project.


The gears of the Premier League

With no more than two remaining days in the Premier League continues with its high level of spectacle, making viewers not want to part with their televisions throughout the weeks that pass. With the Manchester City champion and Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham relegated the Premier comes to an end but during this long campaign many talents have been seen, some of them more anticipated than others.

It’s time to review the best offensive midfield players throughout the campaign. Despite not being able to all enter this list of five chosen, it is necessary to know that many footballers have been at the level of this Premier League and more than one has managed to surprise.

Kevin de Bruyne

What better way to start this spectacular list than talking about the Belgian Kevin de Bruyne, the footballer already league champion in the ranks of City has had a brutal season and has left assists and goals by all the stadiums of England.

Although I had already been leaving great seasons Both in the Premier and in Germany the change of position that Guardiola has found for him has suited him wonderfully, these last games he has been playing in front of İlkay Gündoğan and thanks to that his season has been remarkable.

This season the former Wolfsburg player he has left a total of eight goals and 12 assists counting local competitions and the UEFA Champions League. Undoubtedly He’s prepared facing the Eurocup next summer and I am sure that Belgium coach Roberto Martínez will count on him for the European championship.

Kai Havertz

Kai Havertz was one of many Chelsea additions this season, thus making a competitive team that can to opt to all possible titles and so it has been. To this day, Tuchel’s Chelsea is a finalist in the Champions League and yesterday they played the FA Cup final where they also lost to a spectacular Leicester.

The German began to count on more minutes with the arrival of coach Tuchel, under the orders of Frank Lampard he did not have the minutes necessary to achieve the confidence he has today and allows him to be better on a morale level.

The midfielder has scored seven goals all season and has put up three passes on goal in the Premier League, which makes him on this list, not only because of his scoring statistics, but because of his performances in that position on the field. A famous party this season was the Champions semi-final round against Real Madrid where he signed a spectacular performance.

Jesse Lingard

The player loaned by Manchester United to West Ham has been without a doubt one of the figures of David Moyes’ boys in the second round of the season, but his signing is becoming more and more complicated, the economic amount requested by the reds devils for the English is unattainable for the London team, but the West Ham offices work daily to get the signing closed and make him officially a club player.

Lingard is possibly the surprise of the year, his fantastic second round has left everyone speechless and not happy with that he has led the team to European positions, in these moments the West Ham is located in the 6th place in the leaderboard, since it allows them access to the next edition of the Europa League. Despite spending half the year in the Champions League positions, some away games have become more complicated and have left important points behind. This was taken advantage of by Liverpool who passed them over with a great winning streak.

Regarding statistical data Lingard has contributed nine goals and three assists in the Premier League (only competition in which he has played). The Englishman notifies the English coach Gareth Southgate and leaves his letter of introduction on the table for the European Championship next summer.

Bruno Fernandes

Words are superfluous when talking about this illustrious footballer. The numbers from luso this season are stratospheric and has undoubtedly led Manchester United to second place in the Premier League. Other splendid signing by the Old Trafford managers who have responded to the indications made at the beginning of the season.

One of the culprits for making this beast shine has been Ole Gunnar Solskjær. The former Norwegian footballer has managed to position the Portuguese in front of inner midfielders so that he can move the game and project in speed the sprinters that United has as forwards. Playing behind Cavani he has also shown his great ability as a footballer and that is why the numbers speak for themselves.

At a statistical level Bruno breaks the charts and that is why he is considered one of the best players of the season. The Portuguese has scored 18 goals in the league championship and five as far as the Europa League is concerned, this without counting the group stage of the UEFA Champions League where he left another four goals and among all the competitions he adds more than 12 goal assists. It is expected to be one of the sensations of the European Championship as it has been in this Premier League.

Gylfi Sigurðsson

The batuta of Everton He could not be absent from this list since he has been the most important man along with James Rodríguez in Ancelotti’s team. The difference between the Icelandic and the Colombian is that James was deflated throughout the season due to the injuries that they took him off the pitch for a long period of time, on the other hand Sigurðsson has remained at his level since the beginning of the season, which makes him on this list.

Icelandic has led the team in many phases of the season and he has kept it up to the last minute fighting for the European spots next year. His experience in the England league and his seniority In the world of football they make him a very important figure for Ancelotti who keeps him on the field whenever he can.

As Everton penalty taker has also contributed goals and assists in the competitions played this year by the club. In the Premier League has left six goals and four assists in 33 games playedWhile in the Capital One Cup he scored a goal and gave two goal assists in the four games he has played this season.


They catch Dele Alli kissing with Pep Guardiola’s daughter

Ethe Tottenham player Dele Alli y Mara, daughter of the Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, they do not hide a friendship that may be going further. This is captured by several images in one London entertainment area, English capital, according to the newspaper ‘The Sun’, and that has not gone unnoticed by those who saw them.

Apparently They both had no problem amid the bustle at the venue expressing how they feel and they were seen caramelized to the point, of how testimonies confirm, both will kiss in front of everyone. “They don’t care who saw them kissing in front of the DJ booth.”, they tell the British newspaper.

The Sun exclusively publishes the meeting between Dele Alli and Mara Guardiola

Dele Alli, 25, approached Mara, 20, and they were talking long and hard in the place until the cuddles arrived. This confirms that the Tottenham player seems to have left behind his separation from the model Ruby Mae , from 23 to.

She ended her relationship with Dele after growing weary of his behavior, including spending hours playing the online game Fortnite.

Mara, for his part, he has told his friends about the meeting on the roof of that place with Dele, but says they are “just friends.”


Gundogan makes up for Agüero’s lack of goals and crowns the best season of his career

The Turkish player was able to take advantage of the space left by David Silva, an idol of the English fans, and established himself as “owner of the team” at the most delicate and important moment of the campaign.

Manchester City play as English champions for the first time this Friday (14). The machine of Pep Guardiola visit to Newcastle United in St James’ Park on Date 36 of the Premier League.

It’s safe to say that even in such a well-trained and highly-talented team, I would not have won the England title without Ilkay Gundogan. The German midfielder is experiencing the best season of his career.

But the outstanding thing is that, to live his magical moment with the blue and white jersey, Gundogan he had to reinvent himself and somehow take responsibility for two legends in the club’s history.

Gundogan He was able to take advantage of the space left by David Silva, an idol of the English fans, and established himself as “owner of the team” at the most delicate and important moment of the campaign.

The beginning of City in the season it was not the best. They even lost at home to Leicester City 5-2, one of the three games in which Gundogan He wasn’t even in the field. Yes, few remember it, but the number 8 shirt had COVID-19 and was absent at the start of the Premier League.

His return to the courts was gradual with 25 minutes against Arsenal. He stayed on the bench before him Tottenham, game that they lost 2-0 and despite the fact that the City dominated the possession of the ball, did not find a way to cross the “bus” of Jose Mourinho.

Until December came and, with it, a Gundogan never seen before. Weakened by injury to Kevin de Bruyne, the City I needed a new protagonist. And he found the figure of the German, who showed himself to be more than a midfielder.

From December 15 to January 13, the midfielder had an incredible scoring streak, scoring two goals against Liverpool at Anfield and two against Liverpool. Tottenham, in a 3-0.

It was by far the best record of the career of a player who plays as a midfielder in Manchester, but that he gained more freedom to contribute offensively. Gundogan adds 12 goals in the Premier League, which, unexpectedly, even made up for the absence of the team’s top scorer: Sergio Aguero, which lives its last season in Manchester without the shine of yesteryear by being the victim of annoyances for much of the campaign.

In a team with stars of international caliber and with Kevin de Bruyne as the main protagonist, Gundogan he lived his moment of glory. Determined and enlightened, the German now has another goal: to bring City to win the dream title: the Champions League. The final will be against Chelsea and is scheduled for May 29.

If the final had been played between December and February, the team’s rhythm would undoubtedly pass through the midfielder’s feet. And now, can you close the magical year by lifting the ‘Orejona’?
