The Goal Post: EPL Match-week 25 Preview & Prediction
The 25th round of the Premier League would be exciting. We will cover three essential matches of this round. The review will be focused on Manchester United, Chelsea, and Manchester City.
Leicester V Chelsea
A new round of Premier League starts with an exciting match. We can call this match a central one. It’s a big surprise that Leicester has more chances to win the Premier League trophy than Chelsea. In the summer of 2019, Chelsea got the transfer ban from Uefa. Keep in mind that Russian billionaire, owner of Chelsea were hit with issues in Great Britain. Chelsea management decided to stay quiet for a few months and give a chance to Frank Lampard. London team decided to give a chance to team legend and local youngster. As of now, Chelsea is playing well. Blues are in the fourth position and close to Leicester.
Leicester has 48 points and played 24 matches. Jamie Vardy is the top-scorer of the team. Keep in mind that Jamie is the leader top-scorer of the Premier League also. Leicester is showing a perfect performance under a new coach. At the same time, Leicester fans have hope in second place. Manchester City lacks defensive performance so that Leicester may outperform Guardiola’s team soon.
Chelsea hosted Leicester this season, and teams could only score one goal each. Since 2015, Leicester can’t win a home match against Chelsea. Blues have a good result in the last five away games against Leicester. It’s believed that Chelsea may get three points tomorrow too.
Tottenham V Manchester City
After 24 rounds, Manchester City is not close to Liverpool. Premier League has a new leader – Liverpool. The reds are 19 points ahead to Manchester City. As it seems, Pep Guardiola gave the hopes for Premier League trophy this season.
The last match between these teams happened in August 2019. Tottenham was playing under Pochettino, but they could get one point. Lucas Moura scored the late game-tying goal, and the match ended in 2-2.
Tottenham has a new coach but many problems at the same time. Harry Kane and Sissoko will miss Sunday’s match. Tottenham brought Bergwijn from PSV Eindhoven, and the player is ready to play tomorrow. Jose Mourinho wants to have perfect revenge on Pep Guardiola. English experts believe that it’s impossible because Manchester City is in good shape lately and can score many goals against Tottenham. North London team had a clean sheet only three times in 24 matches.
Manchester United V Wolves
Ole’s team had a chance to qualify for the next round of League cup of England. Unfortunately, Manchester United could not score more than one goal. Although the team won away match against Manchester City, they were eliminated because they needed a minimum of two goals.
Manchester United signed Bruno Fernandes on 31st January. It was a deadline day of the January transfer window, and Ole could finally sign Bruno. As you may know, Matic is suspended for the next game so that he will miss the match against Wolves. Matic scored the only goal against Manchester City and was sent off in the 70th minute.
Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford are out for service. The French player has an injury from September 2019. Marcus got the injury at the start of January, and now he can’t help the team. Keep in mind that Marcus has the most goals from the Red Devils in the Premier League.
Manchester United won the last home match against Wolves. It happened two weeks ago when Manchester United advanced to the next round of FA Cup. Wolves played against Liverpool in the previous round but could not beat Klopp’s team. Premier League experts believe that Wolves can score the goal, but the match will be ended in a tie.
