Coach Jurgen Klopp predicts that the 2020/21 Premier League championship will be a race of 8 candidates. But, after round 10, that number is even … 10 teams!
The effects of the Covid-19 pandemic with the Premier League have not stopped in the 2019/20 season, but also have a heavy residue to the past of the 2020/21 season. After round 10, fans easily noticed a loss of direction in the championship race of the most attractive tournament on the planet.
The Premier League has been a race between Liverpool and Man City
After round 10, coach Jurgen Klopp’s army had 28 points with 9 wins and only 1 draw in round 9 on the MU rival field.
After the 10th round of the 2019/20 campaign, Man City gradually ran out of breath but was still the second-ranked team. The problem is the gap between them and the top team Liverpool is now 6 points. MU was ranked seventh at that time with only 13 points. The gap between Liverpool and the team that is ranked 15 in 2019/20 is Aston Villa 17 points!
How about now? Liverpool with a draw at Brighton missed the chance to monopolize the top of the table. The defending champions are second but equal to the top team Tottenham, currently only less than the difference. Both teams have 21 points. Thus, Liverpool is 7 points behind them last season.
And the current top Tottenham team is just 8 points ahead of the 15th ranked Crystal Palace, one of the lowest score gaps in the tournament history in these two positions. Just winning 1 game, Crystal Palace is currently ranked 15th but can completely step into the top 8, when they are only 3 points behind the eighth-ranked Everton.
