Ten Hag Manchester United

Hello, Premier League fans! Today we will review some exciting news in the past seven days in English Premier League. So sit tight and enjoy the show!

Is RB Leipzig Trying to Mess up Manchester United’s Plans?

It seemed like everything was over, and Manchester United had a new coach who would lead the team next season. Many prominent journalists have reported that the English club has reached an agreement with the coach of Ajax, Erik ten Hag and that everything will be formalized when the season ends and the Dutch club finds a replacement.

However, according to English media, German RB Leipzig also intervened in this story and is trying to convince a promising Dutch coach to come to Germany instead of England and become a coach next season.

What of all this is true remains to be seen. Leipzig currently ranks fourth in the German Bundesliga with 51 points. Italian expert Domenico Tedesco has been sitting on the bench of this club since December. He has significantly improved the team’s results and performance and got them to the fourth place, five rounds before the end.

In the next round, RB Leipzig visits Bayer Leverkusen, and by the end of the season, Leipzig will play with Union Berlin, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Augsburg, and Arminia Bielefeld.

Impressions after the Derby of the Season – Nothing Changed

We watched fantastic 90 minutes at Etihad between the two of the best English teams in the last few years. Four goals, a lot of chances, an incredible rhythm… A match for the biggest football fans. Manchester City may have been a slightly better team and had better chances and the Citizens’ fans will be thinking about that missed chance of Riyad Mahrez in the stoppage time.

Seven rounds before the end of the season, the difference between Manchester City and Liverpool remained the same – one point more for Guardiola’s team. The math is simple: Man City holds all the cards, and if they win all games until the season ends, they will become champions. On the other hand, Liverpool should hope that the Citizens will mess up at least once. Still, the question is whether there is a team that can snatch a point from Manchester City in the season finale.

Let’s look at the remaining schedule of both teams. Manchester City will play with Brighton, Watford, Newcastle, Aston Villa, West Ham, Wolves, and Leeds. The bolded matches are played at home. When we look at the schedule, it seems that only away games with the Hammers and the Wolves can be tricky for the City.

The match with Wolves was supposed to be held next weekend, but it has been postponed due to Man City’s participation in the FA Cup. A new date will be set later. The away game with West Ham is scheduled for May 15, in the penultimate round.

Liverpool has a slightly more complicated schedule on paper, one might say. The Reds play with Manchester United, Everton, Tottenham, Wolves, Aston Villa, Southampton, and Newcastle. All four of Liverpool’s home matches are pretty difficult. Additionally, they have the away game with Aston Villa, and we all know how that ended last year.

In any case, we are in for a very exciting race and, most importantly, another Pep and Jürgen derby in just five days. Manchester City and Liverpool will go head to head in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday at 4.30 pm. Get ready for another 90 minutes of insane football.

Is Tottenham the Closest to the Champions League Right Now?

After Antonio Conte came to Tottenham, he insisted that fourth place was a “mission impossible” for his team. Still, the Lilywhites have significantly improved their shape in the last two months and are now they are in the pole position for the Champions League spot. Saturday just couldn’t have been better for Tottenham fans. The Wolves were defeated on Friday, Manchester United earlier on Saturday, and then, at 4 pm, Brighton shocked the Emirates and took all three points from the duel with Arsenal. Tottenham knew they had to win at Villa Park, and they did it very impressively.

Tottenham struggled in the first half against Aston Villa, and Hugo Lloris had seven saves in the first 45 minutes. Antonio Conte drew his players’ attention to some oversights in defense, and his players came out in much better condition to continue the match. With three goals, they knocked out Aston Villa and celebrated with a score of 0-4.

Tottenham now has three points more than Arsenal and six more than West Ham and Manchester United. In the coming weeks, Tottenham has matches with Brighton, Brentford, and Leicester, while the teams below them have several derbies and challenging games.

Arsenal plays with Chelsea, and in the direct duels, Arsenal – Man Utd and West Ham – Arsenal. West Ham also plays with Chelsea while Man Utd visits Liverpool. When it comes to fighting for the Champions League, a lot will be known at the beginning of May.

A Legend Retires: Neil Warnock Has Announced the End of His Coaching Career!

Nothing will be the same in English football. During an appearance on a show on Sky Sports TV on Saturday, the legendary coach Neil Warnock announced that he was retiring and ending his coaching career.

The 73-year-old coach has been unemployed since November, when he was sacked by Middlesbrough. During his coaching career, which lasted 42 years, Warnock received eight promotions and led numerous clubs. He started at Gainsborough, then transferred to Burton Albion, Scarborough, Notts County, Torquay United, Huddersfield, Plymouth, Oldham, Bury, Sheffield United, Crystal Palace, QPR, Leeds United, Rotherham United, Cardiff, and Middlesbrough.

He was an ugly customer for English referees who will surely breathe a sigh of relief after announcing the end of his career. He amused us with his interviews and statements after the matches for many years. We still remember his conflict with Nuno Espírito Santo, the way he looked at the referees after the defeat by Chelsea, as well as many other amazing situations that will stay remembered.

Just a few days before his dismissal, Neil Warnock managed to lead the 1,603rd matches in a coaching career, which nobody else managed to do in England. He overtook the legendary Dario Gradi, who coached 1,602 games in his career.
