Foxes gradually attaining status as final day top four bottlers

The 2020/21 Premier League season has come to an end and one of the teams that was dealt a major blow is Leicester City. The Foxes yet again failed to live up to expectations in their quest for a place in next season's UEFA Champions League competition. It was the same scenario that panned out in the 2019/20 season when they lost against Manchester City on the final day of the season and bottled their chances. It was the same again. The Foxes needed a win against Tottenham Hotspur but couldn't achieve it as they faced a Spurs side with superior quality and depth who were intent on ending the season on a high even if it was for a place in the lowly newly introduced Europa Conference League that begins next season. Leicester City took the lead twice via penalties converted by Jamie ...

However, the race for the top four will be fierce on the final day as two spots are up for grabs. Manchester City and Manchester United have already sealed their place in next season's UEFA Champ...

Blues and Foxes deprived each other on separate fronts

The FA Cup final at Wembley was one game that Chelsea went into as favorites but ended up losing as Leicester City were up for it, with the London outfit not being able to breach their backline successfully. A screamer by Youri Tielemans was enough to settle the matter on the day as the Foxes won another major silverware after their Premier League triumph some seasons back. It can also be recalled that ahead of the FA Cup final, there was also little concern about who would finish in the top four as both sides who thought they were home and dry allowed Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool back into the race for a place in the top four with their inconsistencies. The two sides were to face each other in another season-defining game in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge. THE BEST SITES FO...

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 ...

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...

Unai Emery – Playing in the UCL is our motivation

Arsenal boss Unai Emery has stated that the club's desire to make the top 4 this season will act as motivation as they seek to return to winning ways in the Premier League against Sean Dyche's Burnley at the Emirates on Saturday. The Gunners have failed to qualify for the UEFA Champions League in the last 2 seasons, and currently, trail Chelsea who sit fourth on the Premier League log by 3 points. According to Unai Emery in a chat with Sky Sports ahead of the Burnley game, his team's aim is to finish in the top 4 this season although winning the Europa League is another platform through which qualification to Europe's elite club competition can be sealed.
