After being left behind by Liverpool on the 2019/20 Premier League chart, Manchester City quickly showed their determination to overthrow The Kop by recruiting two new recruits Ferran Torres and Nathan Ake.
Talking about Nathan Ake, the reason for The Citizens to bring him back to Etihad is that last season, the center-back position was clearly the biggest weakness in Pep Guardiola’s system. And even with Aymeric Laporte back, loopholes in City’s defense remain, even in their victory over Real Madrid. Obviously, City fans expect Ake to be Laporte’s perfect partner and shine brightly in the 2020/21 season. However, according to former player Paul Merson, he is not too optimistic about the deal:
He might not be suitable for City as many people think. The city isn’t the biggest football team in the world either. “ “Sometimes they get stuck in fixed situations, and Ake isn’t going to help them improve this.” “Never before have we seen him show leadership qualities at Bournemouth. The lack of organization in the defense has cost Bournemouth a lot of points, and it’s not Eddie Howe’s fault alone.”
Coutinho, 28, looks set to leave Barca this summer after failing to prove his worth of £ 130 million at the club. The Brazilian was loaned out to Barcelona by Bayern Munich in the 2019/20 season and made a promising start in Germany. But after that, the injury prevented him from being trusted by Gray Lobster.
From the UK, many clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, Leicester, and Newcastle have all been linked with a move for Coutinho. Gunners have limited money to spend aggressively in the transfer market. And according to The Mail, Arsenal can sign Coutinho on loan this summer, on one condition, that Barcelona is not included in the terms that force the Emirates Stadium to buy.
Coutinho’s representative, Kia Joorabchian, has admitted the former Liverpool conductor wants to return to the Premier League. “It’s no secret, he wants to return to the Premier League,” Joorabchian said. “Everything is still open. There is a lot of real interest. Because the Champions League will run until August 23, players like Coutinho will have difficulty making any commitments or steps before that date. “ According to the Mirror, BLD Barcelona is ready for Coutinho to land at the Emirates Stadium for only 9 million pounds in case the London team agrees to exchange Matteo Guendouzi.
After Liverpool and Man City, the last two names in the top 4 of the Premier League and tickets to the Champions League next season have been identified.

At home, having to welcome the sixth-ranked team Wolves, Chelsea has encountered many difficulties in full time. However, with the level of the big man, Frank Lampard’s teachers and students have achieved what they need when defeating the opponent with a score of 2-0.

In the remaining time, the Reds only scored 1 goal from Bruno Fernandes’s penalty shot. Losing 1-3, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s teachers and pity were eliminated.
After the match, De Gea was subjected to criticism for failing to prevent the second goal. When asked if he had special instructions to students to exploit the unstable form of United, coach Frank Lampard answered. Metro: “That’s not it. Because I have great respect for De Gea as a goalkeeper.” “I know people are strict and will always look at goalkeepers when they make a mistake, but all I told Mason [Mount] during the break was that I wanted to see him shoot harder. In the first half. “Mason tried to curl the ball. For me outside the box in front of the top like De Gea, you have to shoot straight through them.
Of course, De Gea didn’t block the glare and the ball into the net, maybe a mistake, but my job is to pay more attention to my players. With Mason, I just want him to shoot more. Luckily 3 minutes after I said that, he scored. “
The 35th round of the Premier League saw crazy things in the top 4. race. Both Chelsea and Leicester were judged to have a great chance to win but both lost heavily.
Chelsea lost 3-3 at Sheffield United. And with just points against Bournemouth, Leicester will return to the familiar third place in the English Premier League. “Foxes” started the match perfectly, with the goal opening in the 23rd minute thanks to Jamie Vardy.

With the above developments, the top 4 Premier League race this season promises to be attractive until the final round. in round 38, MU as a guest on Leicester’s own field Therefore, everything became even more unpredictable.
In the first match at Anfield since officially becoming the new Premier League king, Liverpool had a very weak first half against Aston Villa.
Not since the coronation, Liverpool has shown signs of distraction. In fact, they are one of the teams that have been catching pace very slowly since football returned to England. Up to before the match against Aston Villa, Liverpool had played very poorly in 2 of the last 3 matches, notably a 0-4 defeat to Man City. Coach Juergen Klopp defended the spirit of the student after the defeat at Etihad – where they were greeted by rivals in the queue as the new king. However, the German tactician was unable to remain calm after witnessing the first 45 minutes of sleepy … of the home team against Villa. Statistics show that Liverpool made only two shots in the first half – their worst performance at Anfield in the Premier League since October 2018. At the time of the pause, Klopp showed his dissatisfaction but the attitude of the students was still very worthy of condemnation. In particular, highlights such as the position on the field no longer want to move without the ball – something typical of Liverpool’s play. For example, in the case of Divock Origi, although very few start, but he did not bother to take advantage of this opportunity. In the quick counterattack that Sadio Mane passed to Mohamed Salah, Origi did not bother to speed up but moved slower than the defending Villa defenders.
In the second half, Klopp had to pull out both Origi and Ox-Chamberlain, replacing Roberto Firmino and Jordan Henderson before Liverpool’s play became more active. The home side then scored 2 goals thanks to the work of Mane and young player Curtis Jones to set the 2-0 victory. With Mane, he has had the third consecutive season to score 20 or more goals for Liverpool. For Jones, at 19 and 157 days, he became the youngest Liverpool player to score in the Premier League since Trent Alexander-Arnold in December 2017 (19 years and 80 days).
Jurgen Klopp‘s teachers and students are miserable because … Liverpool fans are too excited with the championship of the home team.
After 30 years of waiting, Liverpool has finally won the championship in the highest division of England. Jurgen Klopp’s army had an extremely impressive season and won the championship seven rounds soon after Man City lost to Chelsea in the 31st round.
The joy of Liverpool fans is indescribable. They disregarded the rules of social spacing and gathered to celebrate all the way in the city of Liverpool. However, this enthusiasm is creating trouble for the Anfield team. According to local authorities, a 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of launching fireworks into the Liver Buiding building causing fire and damage of about $ 10,000. The square in front of this building became a “sea of rubbish” after the celebration of Liverpool fans. A lot of incidents happened and according to police chief Andy Cooke, about 15 people were arrested for their actions. The authorities had to issue an order to dismiss but it was not effective. “Thousands of people showed up at the pier in the Pier Head area and chose to ignore the health, safety of themselves, and the community. The city is still suffering from a medical crisis so this is unacceptable behavior ”. The official Liverpool City notice clearly indicates dissatisfaction.
But more importantly, this situation can continue to happen when Liverpool have lifted the trophy at Anfield in the 37th round. That could become the “disaster” of the city and ruining any distance efforts. Society has been established since the beginning of April. Therefore, according to the British newspaper The Sun, Liverpool’s Covid-19 safety advisory committee is considering withdrawing the license to organize the match of Anfield and transfer the remaining Liverpool home games this season to the neutral yard. It is not just a simple threat because everyone sees the enthusiasm of Liverpool fans. If not lifted the trophy at Anfield will be extremely unfortunate for Liverpool. However, everything was beyond the capabilities of Jurgen Klopp’s teachers and students.
Top scorer in history Reds recall the Senegal interception midfielder for the former club. Rooney returned to Everton Wayne Rooney started his career at Everton before moving to United in 2004. At Old Trafford, the striker won 16 major titles including 5 Premier League and 1 Champions League.
Rooney returned to Everton on a free transfer in the summer of 2017. The former England international is no longer trusted by Jose Mourinho at MU. Rooney stayed a full season before coming to the United States to conquer new challenges at DC United. Before leaving, Rooney was alongside Idrissa Gueye at Everton. Currently, the Senegal international is a Paris Saint-Germain player. Recommended talent for MU Rooney revealed that he was quickly convinced by Gueye’s talent and believed he could afford to join MU. However, he was unable to advise the former club to make the deal.
Rooney wrote in his column for The Times: “Everyone talks about Gueye’s processing power and energy. But what surprised me was the quality of his passes. It’s a player who is always looking to deploy forward and bring it to your feet. ” “After a month of playing with Gueye, I talked to people at Manchester United that he was good enough for them. I was not shocked when Paris Saint-Germain signed him. ” Rooney also commented on another former Everton star, Marouane Fellaini – who left Goodison Park to join MU in 2013. The Belgian international is often criticized for his inappropriate Red Devils style. Rooney added on about Fellaini: “It was a real man. Unintentional, Fellaini always takes advantage of his knees or elbows. He can score, always threaten but never gets the appreciation he deserves. “ “Fellaini is a good person and when playing for Manchester United, it was hard for him. I admire the personality he shows to overcome that. ”
Sir Alex cannot cook a 5-star meal with only ingredients like Darren Fletcher or Park Ji-sung, he also needs Cristiano Ronaldo or Van Persie. Solskjaer should remember that. Jamie Carragher recently said it was fortunate for Liverpool when Sir Alex Ferguson retired. He said that when the Scottish coach was still working, it was easy “The Kop” won the Premier League. In the context of Liverpool about to lift the English Premier League trophy this season, Carragher’s speech made many MU fans feel bitter. From the 5-star meals served under Ferguson, they are now satisfied with the meals of lesser standards.
A year ago, the decision to keep Ole Gunnar Solskjaer of MU leadership divided. The “Red Devils” then had just experienced the worst season sprint in three decades. Last 12 matches of the season 2018/19, MU won 2 matches. They conceded 22 goals and only conceded 8 times. 0-2 defeat to Cardiff City (the relegated team) at Old Trafford on the day of the tournament, considered by many fans as one of the most embarrassing performances of their lives. If only counted in the last 9 rounds of the Premier League season 2018/19, MU ranked 3rd from the bottom up, only on Watford and Huddersfield. The last time MU ended such a bad season was the 1988/89 season, when they also won only 2 of the last 9 rounds in the English league, in the second season of Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford.
The question posed to Vice Chairman Ed Woodward last year, that is why MU must continue to trust in a coach who’s “profile” does not match Solskjaer. If MU is a 5-star restaurant or hotel, they are recruiting a chef at the 3-star level. Solskjaer’s best football experience as a previous coach, was a few months for Cardiff to drop the Premier League in the 2013/14 season. In terms of reputation, Solskjaer is inferior compared to Jose Mourinho, Louis van Gaal or even David Moyes. Compared to the results on the field, Solskjaer has not been able to bring MU to the Champions League like Mourinho, or help the FA Cup champions like Van Gaal. Compared to current Premier League coaches like Pep Guardiola or Juergen Klopp, Solskjaer is still one step behind. The level of a great coach also lies in attracting the top stars. Solskjaer has not shown that. The stature of Bruno Fernandes when coming to MU cannot be compared with Paul Pogba, Angel di Maria. Those were blockbuster deals under Mourinho and Van Gaal. Solskjaer recently stated that he only wants humble players, playing teammates at MU. It is true that every team in the world needs the best players for the collective. But Cristiano Ronaldo or Zlatan Ibrahimovic has never been modest. The level of a top coach is also shown in “capturing” the big stars. Ronald de Boer believes Solskjaer’s statement proves that the coach was tired of dealing with Paul Pogba. And that statement may also indicate the limitations of the Norwegian coach. Before Pogba, Solskjaer had bluntly eliminated Alexis Sanchez or Romelu Lukaku. The names mentioned above were considered by Solskjaer to be unsuitable for his simple football and his pace. However, MU could not conquer the peak with a squad that lacks personality players. In their most glorious era, the Old Trafford team always had the best stars in the contemporary world, and certainly they were not humble people. Sir Alex Ferguson cannot cook a 5-star meal with ingredients like Darren Fletcher or Park Ji-sung. He also needs Eric Cantona, Carlos Tevez, Cristiano Ronaldo or Robin van Persie. Solskjaer also needs to remember that Jadon Sancho, MU’s current blockbuster target is not a “modest” player. The youngest star worth watching in England is currently in many scandals in Dortmund.
Recently, Sancho was penalized for calling a barber to his home during the season, and he then did not hesitate to respond to the Bundesliga organizers….
