Manchester United are second in the Premier League since Tuesday evening. The “Red Devils” could not beat the 1-1 draw in their 37th round match at home against Fulham, but they benefited from their 2-1 defeat to Leicester City in Chelsea. The Londoners overtook the employer for former ÖFB captain Christian Fuchs and finished third – four points behind Man United and one point over Leicester.
Chelsea, who reached the UEFA Champions League Final, were a massive advantage even before the break, but were also unlucky enough to have two goals rejected, including a handball goal by Timo Werner, after studying the video. Antonio Rudiger (47th) started the victory right after the start of the second half, and it is assumed that Jorginho clarified everything with a converted penalty (67th). Since Kelechi Iheanacho scored the next goal, the final stage was again very exciting and above all hot. In a stampede, some of the actors were lucky to escape without being fired. Fox sat on the bench with the losers.
They can now be pushed into fifth place by Liverpool on Wednesday and thus outside the Champions League ranks. The Reds are in Burnley.
Manchester United took an early lead with a great long-range shot and goal No. 10 this season by Edinson Cavani (15), but Joe Brian (76) secured the outside tie. For the first time, fans were back there again, and 10,000 people were allowed to go to Old Trafford. Man United already has three games without a win, after all, after losing to Leicester (1: 2) and Liverpool (2: 4), they won again with a point.
Manchester City suffered a 2-3 defeat by Brighton and Hove Albion in its second match as new champions despite a 2-0 lead. The “Citizens” took the lead in the second minute with Ilkay Gundogan, already outnumbering eight minutes later after Joao Cancelo was disqualified. However, Phil Foden (48th) increased to 2-0 shortly after the start of the second half. Leandro Trussard (50), Adam Webster (72) and Daniel Byrne (76) made the turning point.
There was nothing Southampton to win at home against Leeds United. Styria coach Ralph Hasenhotel lost 2-0 at home. Patrick Bamford (73) and Tyler Roberts (95) met in late Leeds. The lesser “saints” are Table 14.
