On May 26, Beijing time, with Manchester United's 4-1 victory over Chelsea, the qualifications for next season's Champions League and Europa League have all been confirmed, and the pattern of the Premier League BIG6 has completely changed!
As you know, the Premier League has the BIG6 saying, they are Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham, these 6 teams almost monopolize the top four all year round, are regular visitors in the Champions League, and even sweep the top six, of which, only Tottenham has never won the Premier League.
This season, the landscape has changed dramatically. First of all, two giants have fallen behind. Chelsea, who have just changed owners, spent a lot of money on bringing in 16 players in the transfer window, but suffered a heavy blow on the field, and after losing to Manchester United, it will definitely create the lowest points and ranking in the team's history in a single season, and even the capital of the second half of the league may not be able to get!
There are also Tottenham, like Chelsea, they have also changed managers, but the results are still sluggish, Kane and Son Heung-min are also difficult to save, currently ranked eighth, have lost the Champions League and Europa League qualification, at most compete for the Europa League, may not be able to compete for next season's European competition!
Rising are Newcastle and Brighton. Also changed owners, Newcastle played steadily under the leadership of Eddie Howe, becoming the biggest dark horse of the season, locking the top four in one round in advance, and participating in the Champions League again after 20 years! And Brighton, who has three kasa, is definitely not inferior to the Magpies, and Dezelby has shown the strength of the "little melon handsome", leading the Seagulls to play in Europe for the first time in history.
