New hope for Liverpool.

The Premier League, Liverpool and Manchester City are giving a great championship run. Pep’s team seems to be a machine without failures, but even they make mistakes, and Klopp’s gang is not far behind. Merseyside fans had high hopes for West Ham, and the London team lived up to them.

Two West Ham goals from Bowen. He could go to Liverpool this summer

Already in the first half, West Ham led 2-0 – both goals were scored by Jerrod Bowen (by the way, the guy got into the base of Hull under Leonid Slutsky). The striker opened up well behind the backs of the City defenders – he organized both goals in such a way. Two interesting facts about Bowen. Firstly, of the English players playing in the Premier League, only Kane has scored more than him in all competitions this season. Jerrod has 17 goals already. Secondly, he is very interested in Liverpool – apparently, Klopp sees Bowen as a potential replacement for Salah, because they play in a similar style and in the same positions. And now an interesting fact about Man City: the team lost 0-2 in the Premier League at half-time 53 times – and never won (1 draw and 52 defeats). Pep obviously really wanted to correct this statistic: immediately after the break, his team issued a segment of maximum pressure. And it turned into a goal already in the 49th minute: Rodri threw off his head, and Grealish drove in from the penalty area. Then City got a little lucky: Coufal cut off a free-kick into his own net – 2:2. And now the situation no longer seems so catastrophic for Manchester. However, West Ham snapped: the same Bowen had a couple of chances, but he used them worse than in the first half. And, perhaps, the key moment of the match happened in the 83rd minute: Dawson cut down Gaby Jesus in the penalty area. The referee gave a penalty, but Lukasz Fabianski pulled not the worst shot of Mahrez. Curiously, the last unscored penalty by an Algerian in the Premier League happened 4 years ago at Anfield. Then Riyad banged above the gate and brought Liverpool a draw, now his unsuccessful shot gave Klopp’s team hope. West Ham held on to a draw – and thus saw off Mark Noble’s retirement beautifully. It was the last home match in the career of the legend of the London team. 

What’s on the table? Now it’s up to Gerrard’s Aston Villa

Let City not win, but the main thing is that they did not lose. In case of defeat, not everything would depend on Pep and his team: two devastating victories for Liverpool – and the leader could change. Everything would be decided by the difference of points. A draw does not seem sad even in comparison with a victory. If West Ham had won, then a draw would have been enough in the last round. Now you just need to win, but this victory will definitely bring the title.  For now, the situation looks like this. Scenarios in which the fate of the title will be decided by goal difference are minimized. To do this, Liverpool must draw and win, and City must lose in the 38th round.
