On Sunday, May 21, in Manchester at the Etihad Stadium, the match of the thirty-seventh round of the English Premier League in football will take place, in which Manchester City and London Chelsea will play. The starting whistle of referee Michael Oliver from Ashington will sound at 18:00 Kyiv time.
It has been a very difficult season for the reigning champions of England, and in fact, the fingers on two hands are enough to count the number of rounds during which Manchester City led the title race. But in the end, the winner is the one who, over a long distance, shows the best endurance in the most difficult situations, and also has enough experience of big victories in the current combination of players. The London Arsenal simply did not have enough of these qualities for a long struggle, and as a result, the players of Mikel Arteta themselves, with a defeat in the game against Nottingham Forest (0: 1), “put” the champion crown on the head of the “citizens”.
The match against Chelsea London on the penultimate round, although City would still have one more game in hand, should have been a real spectacle in ending Guardiola’s long road to this league title. And as a result, the spectators, who with incredible speed sorted out the cherished tickets for the match, will fill the Etihad only in anticipation of the official part. Whether the home team will arrange a performance for their fans directly in the game plan is a big question. The bribes from City are now smooth – the “citizens” moved Real Madrid itself in the middle of the week on the way to the Champions League final (4:0) and now they are looking exclusively towards the opportunity to collect the treble at the end of the season. The first trophy for this was obtained by the hands of rivals, but for the other two you will have to fight against United and Inter Milan, but these are already plans for the beginning of summer.
This season for the London “Chelsea” was a real revelation. The team was left without the dirty money of an oligarch from a terrorist country, but in his place came a very rich American investor who does not particularly look at the amounts, but simply chaotically scatters fabulous funds. As a result, the “pensioners” completely changed three coaches, completely lost the remnants of their former image, and Frank Lampard now has to do the job for everyone, although he immediately said that he would simply bring the disassembled team to the final line of the season. Such is the fate of the legend of the club, what to do.
But the Argentinean Mauricio Pochettino is not in the Blues camp yet, so the team is still moving in free swimming mode. A series of six defeats behind is already good. And it’s all the more great that under Lampard we managed to win at least one match. Chelsea also have one game in hand, but Manchester United is waiting for the team there, and then there will be Newcastle, so the fans have a choice – give up on everything that happens and just watch impartial football, maybe you’re lucky, or do the same movement, but take a break from broadcasts. We don’t have to choose – the 100 millionth Mikhail Mudrik is waiting in the wings, and therefore, when else, if not in meaningless matches?
