Liverpool will have a long summer vacation after Premier League

With the champions early and no arena to compete, Liverpool will have a slight advantage next season.

The 2019/20 season of European football has to prolong the organization time because of the influence of the Covid-19 epidemic, giving big teams very little time to prepare for the new 2020/21 season. Many big teams like Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Man City, MU or Bayern Munich will have to continue into the remaining series of Champions League and Europa League in August.

Liverpool have up to 6 weeks to rest

If going into the European arena, the above big clubs will only have about 3-4 weeks to both recover fitness and prepare for the new season. However, Liverpool will be outside the list of teams mentioned above. The reason is simple because The Kop was soon eliminated in the Champions League and did not advance deep in the domestic cup arena.

Therefore, teachers and coaches Jurgen Klopp have been able to enter the Summer vacation right after the last match in the Premier League on July 26. With the Premier League just starting the new season on 12/9, Liverpool players will have at least 6 weeks to recover and accumulate fitness. This will be a great advantage for them on the way to defending the title that they have been very difficult to get in the past special season.

In another development, Liverpool recently launched their home shirt next season with quite interesting highlights. After 5 years of cooperation with New Balance, next season, the new Premier League king will have a new jersey sponsor, Nike. The Kop’s new deal with the US giant will help them earn about £ 30 million a year.

Liverpool had a long summer vacation that made MU – Man City crave, showing off new shirts

The home shirt of Liverpool next season

The new Liverpool home kit is still the traditional red color but has removed vertical stripes. The biggest change is the collar as well as the turquoise trim. The inspiration for this design came from the jersey that the Anfield home team used from 1993 to 1995.

Due to the late debut and the end of the season for Liverpool, the fans will have to wait for the friendly matches before the 2020/21 season to see the pet players wearing a new shirt.

The risk of Liverpool being unable to win the Premier League because of Covid-19

It seems to be a speculation, but according to The Telegraph (UK), this is completely real risk if the British Government issued an order to cancel all sports events to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic. raging throughout Europe.

Currently, in the Premier League season, Liverpool has touched one hand to the championship when unbeaten 27 matches (26 wins, 1 draw), far ahead of the opponent ranked behind Man City to 22 points.

While this season only 11 rounds, and if Liverpool continue to win 4 more games in the next round in March, they soon crowned the championship for the first time in 30 years.

However, it cannot be guaranteed just because the Covid-19 epidemic became more and more violent after the raging in Italy and now spread to many other countries in Europe causing panic everywhere.

The Swiss and French governments have issued orders to cancel all events with a concentration of 1,000 or more people in an effort to prevent the spread of Covid-19. In addition, football schedules in these countries’ leagues this weekend are in danger of being postponed.

In the UK, the number of people infected with Covid-19 has increased to 19, and is at risk of rapidly increasing if there are still crowded events such as soccer. The organizing committee of the Premier League does not currently have any advice to prevent this disease. However, the Newcastle Club recently issued a ban on forms such as shaking hands to prevent epidemics.

The Telegraph adds, if the situation is still unpredictable, the risk of the British Government issuing an order to cancel all sports events within April 2 and 5 is very likely to occur.

At that time, the Premier League season will be stopped, and canceled, so the whole season can be declared “invalid”. Therefore, Liverpool, even though it is about to win the championship, is not recognized, even the bottom three teams are not relegated as usual.

However, there will also be cases where the review is the result of the 27 rounds that took place to determine if this season is enough or not. But it may not be considered, because except for Liverpool to make a big gap, while other races such as the top 4, the top 6 with competition for the European Cup are not yet finished. Similarly, the race to avoid relegation.

So, there’s going to be huge controversy and it’s not clear where to go if the season is canceled. But in any case, this case would be unprecedented in the history of the Premier League.

The Telegraph also believes that the outbreak of Covid-19 is a huge threat to the health and lives of people worldwide. While there is no effective cure for the vaccine, it is understandable that governments have to find ways to prevent the spread.

Currently, in addition to the European league competitions, many major sporting events of the world such as the 2020 Olympic Games, Euro 2020, F1 race, all stand the risk of being canceled or postponed. In Asia, the national leagues in China, South Korea and Japan have been postponed, similar to the matches in the AFC Champions League.

Premier League: Arsenal plummeted, Liverpool was rescued

Unai Emery’s chair was increasingly wobbly after Arsenal were held 1-1 by Wolves at home in the 11th round of the Premier League on November 3. Meanwhile, Liverpool and Man City continued to compete in the top 2 positions after successive victories against Aston Villa and Southampton.

A week after a rude reaction to Arsenal fans when being substituted in a match held by Crystal Palace at home, captain Granit Xhaka was removed from the squad by coach Emery with the goal of reducing the tension between the players and Fans. Instead, Arsenal fans backed the return to the starting line-up of star midfielder Mesut Ozil.

Ozil made a small impact on his second appearance in the starting line-up this season by helping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang open the scoring for Arsenal in the 24th minute. Arsenal found an easy victory but on the contrary, “Gunners” lost the posture afterward. This caused Emery’s army to pay the price with an equalizer of Raul Jimenez in the 76th minute. Even, if goalkeeper Leno did not have excellent saves, Arsenal had to be empty at home.

This is the third match in a row that the “Gunners” of London have not won and are being pushed back in the hope of reaching the top 4. So it is easy to understand why after the whistle ended the match, Arsenal encountered. Boos from disgruntled home fans. It was seen as a sign of Emery’s gloomy future after the previous Spaniard was repeatedly asked by his fans to resign.

In other matches, the double of striker Sadio Mane in the last 3 minutes of the match helped the top team Liverpool upstream to beat home owner Aston Villa 2-1 to maintain an unbeaten record this season. Similarly, Man City also came back to beat Southampton 2-1 with 2 goals from Sergio Aguero and Kyle Walker in the second half of the second half. This result helps Pep Guardiola’s army continue to cling behind. Liverpool with 6 points less (25 compared to 31).

Meanwhile, after a stumbling defeat to Manchester United in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup, the youth team of coach Frank Lampard maintained an impressive performance in the Premier League after a 2-1 victory at Watford. Two young talents Tammy Abraham and Christian Pulisic are the ones who helped Chelsea temporarily rise to 3rd place with 23 points.
