As it stands we are into the final match day, and Football fans are witnessing one of the best premier league seasons of the 21st century-though winners were grossed pretty early this season and the competition had to be put on halt but since the league resumed the competition has only got better-as the Champions League spots are on the stake.
Chelsea were perfect guests at Anfield, giving the newly crowned English Premier League champions a guard of honour and refusing to spoil the party, despite giving their hosts a scare.
Before collecting the Premier League trophy, Liverpool won 5-3 on Wednesday to prevent Chelsea from sealing a Champions League spot.
It leaves two of the four spots in Europe’s elite competition still up for grabs in Sunday’s final round of games.
Chelsea just need a point or a United win
Chelsea need one point against Europa League-chasing Wolves to seal a top-four finish and there will be a Champions League qualification showdown between Manchester United and Leicester.
“It’s huge, we know the situation,” said Lampard. “It’s in our hands to get a result against a very good Wolves team.”
Chelsea have already invested huge money in their attacking options for next season with the signings of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech, while they are reportedly closing in on a deal for the 90-million euros Kai Havertz of Bayer Leverkusen.
But at the other end Lampard clearly has to find solutions as they completed an entire league season with just one clean sheet away from home and have now conceded 54 times in the Premier League this season.
Leicester city Vs Manchester United: The decisive battle
Manchester United could do Chelsea a favour by beating Leicester on the final day, meaning the Foxes would finish below Chelsea regardless of the result at Stamford Bridge.
“We’ve got three days now … the extra day before Sunday will make us 100 per cent fresh. We’ve given ourselves a great opportunity. Solskjaer told Sky sports.
“We wanted to give ourselves the chance to head there and get into the Champions League by beating them. Now, we’d be OK with a draw, but we’ll be going there to win. You’ll prepare as you always do to go and win the game.”
Leicester were enjoying a comfortable season-sitting on the top three for a long period of time, but since the football returned after the global pandemic, the Brendan Rodgers men have slowed down their toll to finish at the top four. Leicester have played 9 matches after the lockdown out of which they have lost five, won two and two drawn.
But as it stands, they will have to beat United to confirm their birth and there’s no doubt they would be going all out on Sunday with all their troops marched to finish at the position they deserved to be after having a wonderful season.
Manchester United are third with 63 points, above Chelsea on goal difference. Leicester are one point behind.
