Deciding EPL Confrontations

Posted on September 26, 2018 by Emily Kalvin

The English Premier League is the most intensive internal championship in the world. In the current season, the championship has already shown some surprises and records and now we are waiting for the future rounds that will finally clean the air.

Football fans will certainly remember the current season of the EPL, as “Manchester City” led by Josep Guardiola showed a record winning series and disengaged from its competitors already in the first half of the championship. Remarkably, the “citizens” confidently disposed of their main rivals who could have competed with them during the season. The rivals were:

  • “Manchester United”;

  • “Arsenal”;

  • “Chelsea”;

  • “Tottenham”;

  • “Liverpool”.

By the way, the first and the latter took revenge in the second half of the season. The home failure of “United” deprived Guardiola’s team of the championship trophy in the home stadium. However, they won the title in the next round.

The Premier League standings are traditionally a major topic of both fans and experts’ discussion. In this season, teams’ positions are quite equal, so much depends on the outcomes of the last rounds. The EPL fixtures are intriguing confrontations where competitors have absolutely no margin for error.

Future Competitions

The main issues that should be clarified by the end of the season are who will join “WBA” in the failure zone and who will enter the Champions League. The past tournaments were distinguished by uncompromising struggles and equal chances of victory. There is no doubt that future matches are a chance to show everybody outstanding personal skills and gain coveted points that will influence the final outcome when the season ends.

The current campaign will also stick in memory with its vociferous transfers. One of the most sensational transfers was the “exchange” of Henrikh Mkhitaryan for Alexis Sanchеz in January. “Arsenal” and “Manchester United” got attacking players who aim to solve “staffing” problems of the teams. At the crucial competitions, the rivals will try to go all-out to achieve all goals set and please their fans.

There are a few rounds until the championship ends but everything can change here and, as a result, the league table will change too. We have to wait but not for long – just a few rounds, and we will know the final outcome of the EPL 2017/2018.
