The three scenarios for the end in the Premier League this season

Because of the risk of not being able to kick the last nine rounds, the Premier League needs scoring plans to complete the season.

The first scenario

Using current score as a base is the first solution. The 20 teams will get an average of one match, then multiply by 38 to get the final score. If done this way, the order of the teams remains the same. Liverpool championship. Leicester City, Chelsea and Man Utd participated in the Champions League, due to City being banned. Bournemouth, Aston Villa, Norwich are relegated.

Because Liverpool are 25 points ahead of Man City, this calculation does not cause much reaction to the first group. Jurgen Klopp’s teachers and students will also be crowned with a record score of 107. The controversy will occur in the bottom group, where Bournemouth is equal to Watford and West Ham, but must be relegated to First place.

The second scenario

Using scoring can be a method to solve this problem. Starting from the remaining teams’ schedules, the average score is only calculated in the period when each football club completes a round to meet the remaining 19 teams. In this way, the European cup reserve rates remain the same. The biggest change is that the first place relegation will belong to Watford, instead of Bournemouth as the first way.

Ranking in the second way is more accurate than the first, but not considering the home and away factors in the remaining nine rounds. Many relegation teams at the end often choose to launch reserve tactics when facing stronger teams, and play their best when playing against a peer team, out of motivation to play, or simply play at home.

The third scenario

The Times takes this into account when analyzing and making a third choice. Home and away form can be used to predict the ratio of matches not yet played. Before each match, the home team’s average score will be compared with the opponent’s average. The last five matches have been added, then summed. If two points differ from 0.2 or more, the team with the more points wins. On the contrary, the match is a tie.

Scoring in this way will cause a big disturbance in the first group, when Man Utd lost fifth place, synonymous with Champions League qualification, to Sheffield. Meanwhile, the three relegation teams are still Watford, Aston Villa and Norwich.

Premier League and winter break like no one

After a few decades of debate, after all, one of the most respectable traditions in the football homeland has (probably will) collapse. For the first time in history, Premier League teams will have a two-week winter break, in February!

England is the birthplace of football. As everyone knows, one of the most unique features of the football homeland is that the ball never stops rolling, even during the most important holidays of the year (the opposite is the opposite: the bigger the ceremony, the more football must be played, to entertain the public).

Now, when the English football executives have to surrender to the grievances of the insiders, having issued a winter break to give players a chance to rest, the first strange thing is the Premier League winter break in the February (most other tournaments winter break during the Christmas – New Year). But that is not the only difference.

Extremely unique, the English football operator has devised a solution for the players, the team is winter break, but in the end, the Premier League still not stop! In principle, there will be a Premier League round within 2 weeks. The matches of that round will last for 14 days, instead of all taking a break. The original idea was to draw lots for 8 teams to play (12 teams get a break) in one weekend, then reverse (8 teams take a break) in the next weekend.

Of course, when applied in practice, the rest time of the teams will not be the same. On the one hand, people take advantage of the break time to solve the postponed matches, the matches must be rematched in the FA Cup. On the other hand, they still have to give priority to the television schedule. In short, people who take a lot of rest or who don’t get a lot of rest must accept it by chance.

Having to play against Tottenham in the FA Cup fourth round on February 5, Southampton will be the team with the least winter break: 9 days. In contrast, Chelsea and M.U are the two teams with the most winter break: 15 days. Wolverhampton has 12 winter holidays. But judging from this, this team can only take a winter break after having played 40 games since the beginning of the season (in all competitions). Of the five players who have played more than 3,000 minutes in the UK this season, four are Wolverhampton: Conor Coady, Joao Moutinho, Rui Patricio, Leander Dendoncker (the other is Liverpool’s Virgil Van Dijk).
