Chelsea, which has won four consecutive games in the league, and Tottenham, which ranks fifth, by three points, let’s make the final round!

Chelsea, which is on a formidable rise at the end of the season, continued its hopes of advancing to the Europa League.

Chelsea defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 in the round 34 match of the 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) at the Amex Stadium in Brighton, England on the 16th.

Chelsea, which has been undefeated in five games, including four consecutive league wins, has 60 points, narrowing the gap with Tottenham (63 points) in fifth place to three points.

The final 38 rounds of EPL will be held on the 20th. If Chelsea wins the final match and Tottenham loses, Chelsea and Tottenham will have the same points, with Chelsea recording +13 and Tottenham +10 in goal difference, leaving Chelsea in fifth place arithmetically.

In the EPL, the first to fourth-place teams will advance to the UEFA Champions League next season and the fifth-place team will play in the Europa League. The sixth-place team will secure a berth in the Europa Conference League play-off, which is equivalent to the third-division club competition.

However, the competition to advance to the European Football Association (FA) Cup remains in addition to the league rankings. The winners of the FA Cup will also be given the chance to advance to the Europa League, and if the relevant team has already decided to advance to the Champions League or Europa League, the sixth-place team in the EPL will receive the chance to win the Europa League ticket, with the seventh-place team going to the Conference League. In the FA Cup final, which is scheduled to take place on May 25, EPL leaders Manchester City (hereinafter referred to as Manchester City) and Manchester United (hereinafter referred to as Manchester United), which are currently ranked eighth in the league, will face off. If Manchester City wins, it can also play in the Europa League as a sixth-place team.
Still, since the FA Cup final result cannot be guaranteed, Tottenham and Chelsea will compete fiercely for fifth place in the final game.토토

Chelsea scored the winning goal in the 19th minute of the second half after Cole Palmer headed Mark Kukureya’s cross. After Reece James was sent off at the end of the second half, the team scored a comeback goal to Danny Welbeck in extra time, but it did not affect the victory or defeat. Palmer scored his 22nd goal in the league this season, ranking second after Erling Holan (27 goals).

Meanwhile, Manchester United, which ranked eighth, won 3-2 at home against Newcastle on the day, and scored 57 points, the same as Newcastle, which finished seventh behind Chelsea. In terms of goal difference, Newcastle scored +21 and Manchester United scored -3.
