Arsenal and Tottenham, representing North London in the English Premier League (EPL), are crying at the end of the season. Arsenal, who had been aiming for the top spot in the league for the first time in 19 years, turned on a red light to compete for the championship, and Tottenham cannot guarantee participation in the UEFA Champions League next season.
Arsenal lost 1-4 in the 33rd round of the EPL in the 2022-23 season against Manchester City (hereafter Man City) held at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England on the 27th (hereinafter Korean time).
Arsenal, who recently drew 4 matches in a row (3 draws and 1 loss) in the EPL, now has 23 wins, 6 draws and 4 losses (75 points), and Man City (23 wins, 4 draws, 4 losses, 73 points) has played two fewer games than them. The gap between them narrowed to 2 points.
Arsenal, which has been consistently leading the league by winning and winning since the beginning of this season, dreamed of reaching the top for the first time in 19 years since the 2001-02 season.
However, starting in February, it started to shake little by little. After being caught 0-1 by Everton, who was struggling in the relegation zone, they also lost 1-3 to championship rival Man City.
After reorganizing the front line, Arsenal found a sense of stability in March, but the crisis came again. Arsenal, who drew 2-2 in the Liverpool expedition on the 10th, failed to accumulate points by drawing with low-mid-level teams such as West Ham and Southampton. And with another 1-4 defeat to Man City, winning on their own is now impossible.
Arsenal’s championship rival Man City had a bad flow in the beginning, but the players with winning DNA calmly spent the season and eventually seized the opportunity to reverse Arsenal.
Arsenal’s north London rivals, Tottenham, are in a more serious situation.바카라사이트
Tottenham, who managed to beat Arsenal last season and took fourth place in the EPL and qualified for the Champions League for the first time in three years, are currently in 7th place with 16 wins, 5 draws and 11 losses (53 points).
It is 6 points behind Manchester United, the 4th place team in the league that is qualified for the Champions League (hereinafter referred to as Manchester United, 18 wins, 5 draws, 7 losses, 59 points). It is a difficult situation to reverse as Tottenham have played two more games than Manchester United.
In addition, Brighton (49 points), who played two games less than Tottenham, is aiming for a reversal in the rankings, so even 7th place cannot be guaranteed.
Tottenham’s team atmosphere is also not good. Tottenham suffered a 1-6 defeat to Newcastle in the previous match and the sack of acting coach Christian Stellini.
For Tottenham, who has to find a new manager next season, it is important to obtain the right to participate in the European club competition, but if it goes wrong, the game must be played only in Korea. Tottenham in crisis will face Man United on the 28th.
