Five talking points from the 2019/20 Premier League season

We are looking forward to the 2020/21 Premier League season after the previous season ended successfully. The 2019/20 Premier League season was an eventful one that came with its share of thrills, shocks, and surprises. Managers were fired, clubs carved niches for themselves as bogey teams, and some youngsters also broke into the scene and made a name for themselves in the course of the season. Here are five notable talking points from the 2019/20 season. Chelsea were forced to rely on youth and surprisingly excelled at it Frank Lampard arrived at Chelsea last summer amid a transfer ban where he was not allowed to sign any players of his choosing. This effectively meant that the Blues legend had to rely on youth from the start of the season. The English manager had to fall back on ...

Easy-peasy final day UCL qualification for Man United and Chelsea

The 2019/20 Premier League season came to an end on Sunday, and we'll be looking forward to September 2020 for next season. The final day was devoid of any major drama, especially in the race for the UEFA Champions League. Frank Lampard's Chelsea and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United made it to UCL with relatively easy victories although one would have thought that their opponents on the day would give them some shivers. Manchester United finished third for the season with a comfortable 2 nil victory against Leicester City at the King Power with all goals coming in the second half. The first goal was a penalty converted by Bruno Fernandes and the second from the unlikeliest of players, Jesse Lingard. BEST OVER 1.5 GOALS PREDICTIONS FOR TODAY Remember the guy who placed a...

A dramatic Premier League final day top 4 race to watch out for

The 2019/20 Premier League season reaches its climax on Sunday and the fight for the remaining two top 4 places will rage on and be settled on the last matchday of the season. Manchester United finally moved into the top 4 with one game to go due to superior goal difference. Chelsea moved down to 4th while Leicester City remained in fifth. The Red Devils may not have done themselves any good by drawing 1 all against West Ham at Old Trafford but we'll know better after the blast of the final whistle at the King Power Stadium against a Leicester side who'll seal a place regardless of other results if they win. Chelsea, on the other hand, played out an entertaining 5:3 result against Premier League champions Liverpool, although they were on the losing side. They face Wolves at Stamfo...

The Premier League top 4 should see changes today

The Premier League continues today with two of the top 4 contenders in action. Manchester United, who presently sit 5th with 62 points, 1 point below Chelsea on 3rd and level with Leicester on 5th, will play hosts to West Ham at Old Trafford in a must-win encounter. Chelsea will also face a very tough task away from home against Premier League champions Liverpool at Anfield. The Reds won't want to celebrate their trophy parade with a loss and it's also their last game at home this season. Leicester City already lost 3 nil away to Tottenham Hotspur over the weekend and will be on their knees hoping that these two rivals falter. Regardless, we're looking forward to finally seeing a change of positions in the top 4 places at the end of today's fixtures. The best free football predict...

A very strange Premier League top four race so far

A good number of folks expected a change in position for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th teams in the Premier League going by the proceedings of last weekend. However, this was not the case as Manchester United were held to a 2-all draw by Southampton at Old Trafford on Monday night. Therefore, it's safe to say that the third to fifth teams in the Premier League are flattering to deceive, having failed to consolidate on their positions thus far in the Premier League. Chelsea strangely retained the third spot even after a shambolic 3 nil loss away to Sheffield United. This was also the case for Leicester City who retained the fourth spot after losing 4:1 away to Bournemouth.
