Teams: Bamford misses Leeds
There is no Christian Norgaard for Brantford, so he may be in danger of missing the Golden Shinpad (for most selections). In Leeds Patrick Bamford was ready to return, only to get a positive result on Covid, which rather sums up the season.
Brantford Raya, Aer, Jansen, Sorensen, Henry, Jensen, Janelt, Eriksen, Mbuema, Tony, Vissa.
Leeds Meslie, Koch, Lorent, Cooper, Firpo, Phillips, Rafinha, Rodrigo, Harrison, Gelhardt, Greenwood.
Teams: start for Dele Ali
Dele Ali gets a rare start, Donnie van de Beek – no – he is on the bench and ready to replace Dele in the 63rd minute. Frank Lampard gives a respite to some people, but this Arsenal defense still looks a bit tense.
Arsenal Rumsdale, Soares, Holding, Gabriel, Tavares, Elneni, Jaco, Sacco, Odegaard, Martinelli, Nketia.
Everton Begovic, Brantwaite, Holgate, Keane, Kenny, Davis, Ducur, Iwobi, Ali, Gray, Calvert-Levin.
Teams: Kane is fine
Antonio Conte, another manager who removes the drama from the selection, once again pushed Harry Kane.
Norwich Krul, Aarons, Bayram, Hanley, Janulis, Sorensen, Norman, Dowell, Liz-Melo, Rashika, Puki.
Tottenham Loris, Sanchez, Dyer, Davis, Royal, Bentancourt, Hoybjerg, Cesenyon, Kulusewski, Kane, Son.
Teams: Burnley unchanged
Burnley follows the drawing team, reinforcing suspicions that their manager Michael Jackson knows what he’s doing. Kieran Tripier returns to Newcastle, whose dramatic improvement began with his arrival.
Burnley Pope, Taylor, Tarkovsky, Collins, Long, Cork, Roberts, McNeill, Brownhill, Barnes, Carnet.
Newcastle Dubravka, Tripier, Lasselles, Bern, Target, Longstaff, Guimarães, Joelinton, Almiron, Wilson, Saint-Maximin.
Teams: City vs … Olsen
In Pep’s starting lineup there is no Sterling or Grilish, but John Stones is back (as a right-back). For Villa Amy Martinez is unsuitable, so Steven Gerrard made his debut at the club for Robin Olsen, who was previously at Everton and then at Sheffield United. Sounds like a recipe for last day heroics.
Man City Ederson, Stones, Fernandinho, Laporte, Cancello, Rodrigo, De Braine, Silva, Mares, Foden, Jesus.
Aston Villa Olsen, Cash, Chambers, Mings, Melon, Louis, McGinn, Ramsey, Buendía, Coutinho, Watkins.
Teams: No Salah for Liverpool
And no Van Dyke either, which could matter more.
Liverpool Alison, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Konate, Robertson, Keita, Henderson, Thiago, Jota, Manet, Diaz.
Wolves Sa, Gomesh, Cody, Boli, Ait Nuri, Mautinho, Neves, Dendoker, Otto, Neta, Jimenez
Some correspondence! “Just send it by email,” Joe Mahoney says. “Question this choice of lasagna image. Was your intention to find one of the most unappetizing pictures on the internet? If so, well done. The film-like shiny skin on its surface seems to act in a similar way to the bright, colorful skin of a frog; a clear warning sign for everyone to stay far, far away ”. I will pass your compliments on the table with the pictures.
Wait, we have fifth race on two horses. Golden boots! Mo Salah is leading with 22 goals in the league, but Son Hyun Min is breathing down his neck with 21. Salah may not be able to start today, he only has six sleeps before the Champions League final. And even if he does, the Wolves – though in monstrous form – may be less responsible than Norwich. Cristiano Ronaldo, who is in third place, is absent today due to a hip flexor injury, so he will be left with bronze boots unless Harry Kane makes a hat-trick on Carrow Road.
Preamble: four jumps on two horses
Everyone’s day and welcome to the madhouse. The final day of Premier League The season is traditionally a time of late turns, goodbye, squealing bums and stupid results (Sir Alex Ferguson managed to unite the draw, ending his career with a 5-5 draw at West Bromice). Today we can see a little less quirk and a little more seriousness because the match list has made us proud. There are still four races on two horses, and none of the participating clubs are facing each other, so eight of the ten games that start at 4pm have something.
These races are completely:
League title. It practically belongs to Pep Guardiola and he loses. If City beat Villa, they will retain the Premier League trophy. But Liverpool, who face the Wolves, are just one point behind, and on January 19, they are 11 points behind. Both teams are at home today, which is more reassuring for Jurgen Klopp than Pep.
Last place in the Champions League. Leonard Cohen saw it happen: it happens, fourth, fifth. The Spurs visit poor gloomy Norwich, they just need a point, so they can almost afford to be Spursey. Or even order lasagna. Arsenal, back to their red card habit, can’t afford to be Arse. They entertain Everton, who are poor travelers, and they have nothing to play for after saving their skins in this midweek melodrama – but they have surprisingly become the charming team of Michel Arteta with victories in the last three league matches between the parties.
European wooden spoon. Not content with the competition of who is the least successful manager of Manchester United after Fergie, Ralph Rangnik and David Moyes are also fighting for the dubious honor of qualifying for the Europa League. United, who are visiting Crystal Palace, are two points ahead but far behind in goal difference, so they need a win to be sure of getting into the Europa League, which is about their level these days. West Ham, which is going to Brighton, seems to be a much better team without having league results. They may have something in their eyes when they say goodbye to Mark Noble.
The final place in the flight. Norwich and Watford are doomed, Everton are safe, leaving Burnley and Leeds. Both have 35 points each, with Burnley ahead on goal difference and in much better shape after benefiting from a rebound without a manager. They have 10 points in their last six games, twice as many as Leeds. Burnley is home to Newcastle, whose newly acquired benefits are rarely seen on the road. Leeds is visiting Brantford, which has been magnificent since the signing of Christian Eriksen. It’s much easier to see that Burnley is getting something than Leeds, but the last day has little to do with logic.
Closest to the dead rubber at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea, who can only take a distant third place, welcomes Watford, who are 19th, and cannot be changed unless Norwich beat Spurs “. The final game – “Leicester” against “Southampton”, where nothing is at stake except honor and prizes. The ninth-placed Leicester may well bypass the Wolves, though they could probably be caught by Brighton. Southampton are in 15th place and will remain there if Everton do not improve their results.
