The last round draw in the English Premier League will be the classic hard scheme according to which all teams must start their matches in a single slot. It would be interesting to participate in this football event with a sports interest to Liverpool-Jurgen Klopp, if “red” by his own efforts would not have set himself early to the throne. In the end, the championship for the team from the banks of the river Mersey would finish the match in the stadium, which in the beginning of the century, every team is “elite” of English football chose to ignore – “St James Park”, where not rainbow greeting to preparing local rivals Newcastle.
To lift over a head the trophy after a spectacular victory in the prolific match against Chelsea (5:3) is the best scenario for the final game of the season for the native “Enfield” for the team Klopp could not write and Directors of blockbusters. After the early clearance of title, results Liverpool, unfortunately for their fans, began to limp, but the home match with “seniors” managed to remove all questions champion still with us and wants a dignified end of the season. Moreover, it is possible to gain 99 points and catch up with “Manchester city” model of the season 2017/18 on this indicator.
The magpies Steve Bruce prepared in advance to itself a place in the Premier League for next season, so in the last five matches have allowed themselves to score points in only two of them suffered a draw with the London “West ham” and “Brighton”. The only thing that could spur Newcastle to really fight is the statistics between the teams. “St James Park” I have not seen the victory over Liverpool since December 2015 year, and first round match ended the then guests, “Enfield” defeat 3:1.
The hospital team of Bruce before the game was empty. The head coach still can’t count on Clarke, Lascelles, Lejeune, Shera and crafting. The latter got a shoulder injury at the end of the season. As part Longstaff and Hagana is a big question. Most likely that Newcastle will finish the season with about one set of players. An exception may be only returned to training Deandre Yedlin. Klopp loss much less Matip and Henderson will definitely be back on the field before the end of this football year.
The upcoming game is entrusted to the team of referees headed by the representative of Wythenshawe, Anthony Taylor. It will be the 32nd game this season in the Premier League. With an average of 4.06 yellow cards per game, Taylor is among the most loyal of arbitrators of the country. At the same time, penalty kicks in matches with its participation in every third match. Games of Liverpool, he spent five times, and only in one of them the “Reds” lost, getting 0:4 Manchester city earlier this month. Interestingly, this will be the first game Taylor involving Newcastle in this football year.
