After securing three points yesterday behind Emre Can’s wonder goal, Liverpool are primed to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League for the first time in three years. The Reds have a very manageable schedule down the stretch.
With four games to play in the EPL season, streaking Tottenham trails Chelsea by four points in the title race. Spurs still have a chance to finish atop the table, but they can’t afford to give away any points down the stretch. Although Chelsea dropped two games in April, a favorable schedule bodes well for their title chances.
Tottenham will play three of their final four games on the road, and they certainly have the tougher schedule. Here’s a look at their remaining games:
West Ham (A)
Manchester United (H)
Leicester City (A)
Following a board meeting today, Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed they will play all of their home games at Wembley Stadium next season while waiting for their new world-class stadium to be finished.
Spurs have called White Hart Lane their home for the past 118 years. The new stadium, set to be ready by the start of the 2018-19 season, will be adjacent to their current home.
According to media reports, the NFL has contributed $12.8 million toward Tottenham Hotspur's new stadium.
The initial payment will likely go towards custom-tailoring the 61,000-seat stadium for hosting NFL games. Tottenham had agreed to a 10-year deal that allows the NFL to host a minimum of two games per season at the stadium, which is not expected to open until the start of the 2018-19 season.
Chelsea await the winner of Sunday’s match between Arsenal and Manchester City to contest the 2017 FA Cup Final after defeating Tottenham 4-2 in the semis. Two first half goals by Willian were canceled out by Harry Kane and Dele Alli, but Eden Hazard scored Chelsea’s match-winner in the 75th minute. Five minutes later, Nemanja Matic secured the victory with one of the best goals you’ll ever see.
The Serbian defensive midfielder hadn’t scored a single goal this year, but his maiden strike was an absolute banger.
