Tottenham fall from 5th to 7th in two days… Liverpool also hit

Tottenham Hotspur, who had been quiet, suffered a two-step drop in rankings in two days. The competing teams won consecutive victories.

On the 27th (Korean time), Liverpool, who played round 33 of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL) at London Stadium in London, England, won 2-1 away from West Ham United.

It was a come-from-behind win for Liverpool. The opening goal was scored by West Ham’s Brazilian midfielder Lucas Paqueta. However, Liverpool returned the game to the starting line with Cody Hakpo’s equalizer shortly after conceding. And in the 12th minute of the second half, Joel Matip scored a come-from-behind goal.

Liverpool played 32 games and reached 53 points (15 wins, 8 draws, 9 losses). With this, the points are equal with Tottenham, but in terms of goal difference, Liverpool recorded +22, far ahead of Tottenham, which only +7. Liverpool climbed to 6th place, pushing Tottenham to 7th place.

The day before, Aston Villa reached fifth place with 54 points. Tottenham, who had been in 5th place for a long time, is rapidly dropping in the rankings due to successive victories of rival teams. However, Aston Villa has played 33 games, one more game than Tottenham, and there is a good chance that Tottenham will reverse again.

The recent EPL ranking battle is a point-and-shoot. Eighth-place Brighton & Hove Albion, just below Tottenham, have only 49 points, but have only played 30 games yet. Since we played two less games than Tottenham, we can hit and rise as much as ㅋㅋㅋ벳 we can.

The last line to qualify for the European competition is 7th. Manchester United (currently fourth) won the Carabao Cup this season, and the FA Cup final is between Manchester City (second) and Manchester United. The ticket to the European competition given to the winners of the two cup competitions is also provided to the next-ranked team in the league. So, the 1st and 4th places in the EPL go to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) next season, the 5th and 6th places go to the Europa League, and the 7th place goes to the Europa Conference League.

According to the current structure, Tottenham cannot even guarantee 7th place. According to the calculations of football statistics company ‘OPTA’, Tottenham has the highest chance of finishing the season in 7th place at 32.5%. The next highest probability is 29.6% for sixth place and 22.2% for eighth place. The chance of jumping to fourth place is only 1.2%.
