With a safe win away to Crystal Palace, Chelsea have kept them safe in the close-knit battle for Champions League spots in the Premier League. The outstanding player in the 4: 1 minute (3: 0) at Selhurst Park in South London was German international Kai Havertz, who scored a goal and model for Thomas Tuchel’s team, who improved to fourth place at the moment. .
After just eight minutes, the former Leverkusen player was in charge of the important goal 1-0, after he buttoned the ball from Eberechi Eze and then scored with an expected shot shortly after (8) – his second goal of the season in the Premier League. He immediately followed Chelsea, and this time Havertz emerged as a model for former Dortmund-based Christian Pulisic (10th). Half an hour later, defender Kurt Zuma cleared it all up with a post-record header from Mason Mount with a 3–0 goal. The second half managed to squeeze out Table 13. It made something more balanced. Christian Benteke managed to fall short (63.), before Pulisic scored his second goal in 4: 1 (78.).
After the disappointing 1: 3 match at Real Madrid with a 2: 1 (0: 1) match against Aston Villa, the Liverpool champions were able to celebrate a victory that could be higher than the advance in First Division. “It was huge,” said enthusiastic coach Jürgen Klopp, whose team had previously lost six consecutive league matches at Anfield, “I felt a big win, and it was a real relief.” However, the Reds remain fifth in the table, two points behind Chelsea and could also be overtaken by surprise West Ham United on Sunday.
In front of England coach Gareth Southgate, Trent Alexander Arnold (90 + 1), who was the last time knocked out of the national team, made the Reds delight in stoppage time. Olly Watkins (43), Adel Mohamed Salah (75). Roberto Firmino’s supposed goal was not scored after minutes of scrutiny by the video referee due to a very weak offside position – much to Klopp’s annoyance.
The Reds must now hope for their next home win against Real Madrid on Wednesday. To reach the Champions League semi-finals, Club-Elf needs to win 2-0 or win by at least three goals. Before the football matches in England, there were two minutes of silence for Britain’s Prince Philip at every stadium before kick-off at the weekend. Queen Elizabeth II’s husband died on Friday at the age of 99.
