Liverpool Equalize In The Last Minute Against Villa – But Newcastle Could Already Have Qualified For Top Four Finish



Aston Villa took the lead against Liverpool at Anfield after 27 minutes through Ramsey, and as it looked like Villa would win the game and Newcastle would therefore officially qualify for the top four, Firmino equalized after 89 minutes.

But with Liverpool drawing 1-1, that now means that Newcastle only need to draw on Monday night: we in fact need one point in the last 2 games to ensure we qualify for Champions League.

But even if Liverpool can win their last game, at bottom of the league Southampton, and we lose our final 2 games, we could still top the Reds on goal difference.

And even though the referee played a ridiculous 10 minutes of added time to let the Reds score the winner, they didn’t do that.

Here is the latest Premier League table after today’s games, where Manchester United won at Bournemouth with a goal from Casemiro after 9 minutes.

ClubMatchesGoal Diff.Points
1Man City386189
2Arsenal384584
3Man United381575
4Newcastle383571
5Liverpool382867
6Brighton381962
7Aston Villa38561
8Tottenham38760
9Brentford381259
10Fulham38252

We are sure that Eddie Howe will say we need to beat Leicester on Monday night to make absolutely sure – and why not on our last home game of this magnificent season.

In fact, Eddie Howe will desperately want to win our final two games, with the last game being at Chelsea on Sunday, 28th May.

And why not, indeed.

🙂

Also, if we win our final two games, we will finish 3rd top above Manchester United on goal difference, even if the Red Devils also win their final two games.

HWTL!

    I have a suspicion Lampard will play a lot of youngsters against us. He’s always promoted himself as someone who promotes youth and it’s his last game.

    TDS walks into a bar in Ashington and points to all the folks on the left and says , ” You lot are a load of arseholes ! ” … He then points to those on the right and says , ” And you lot are a load of cnuts!!
    A big bloke from the left stands up and declares , ” I’m no arsehole ! ”
    TDS tells him …… ” Well get over there with the cnuts then .”

    There is a very good chance that Spurs don’t qualify for any European competition at and if they do chances are it is Conference League.

    So close now, and absolutely huge for us, given how you can’t put a foot wrong nowadays in pursuit of the big prizes and the big clubs given FFP nowadays. The level of sponsorship we can now go after, plus the extra tv and gate revenue we will receive from CL football games means we will have the money in the kitty to go after those better players we will need to succeed and continue to succeed. We have the financial backing, the fans and the stadium, but we need to keep finishing in those European places, to afford and maintain an elite squad long term. Stage one all but complete and immaculately so. Great job Eddie Howe and staff, the owners and of course the players. Superb.

    Mines still achey at the tendons/back but overall better than the arthritis pain.
    I’d definitely probably put up with the pain if my other knee gets worse too lol.
    Was a good idea at the time but I was used to the arthritis pain and getting to where I am now makes me think whether I’ll just suffer for my other one 😆
