German cheers on the island! Tuchel trembles in the premier class, Klopp is also there.
Last game day in the Premier League, the decision in the battle for the two remaining Champions League places behind champions Manchester City (wins 5-0 against Everton) and Manchester United (2-1 in Wolverhampton).
Before the last 90 minutes of the season, Chelsea (67 points) are third with the best starting position in the England decision – ahead of Liverpool and Leicester City with 66 points each.
Nevertheless, the Tuchel team is threatened with a bitter fall to 5th place for a long time!
At the eleventh place in the table, Aston Villa, for whom it is no longer about anything, Chelsea lost 2-1. After a dominant first half, in which the “Blues” missed the best chances, Traore scored shortly before the break after a corner to make it 1-0 for Villa. In the second half, Chelsea loses the thread – and the game. El-Ghazi takes care of the decision (52nd). Chilwell can only shorten (70th).
At the same time, Leicester is on course to kick Chelsea out of the Champions League thanks to a Vardy brace against Tottenham.
But then Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel gives Tuchel 4th place!
13 minutes before the end, the Dane accidentally fists a Tottenham corner into his own goal. Leicester out, Chelsea in the Champions League. Bale even scores 3: 2 and 4: 2 for the Spurs. All’s well that ends well for Tuchel!
Meanwhile, thanks to the fifth Premier League win in a row with Liverpool, Jürgen Klopp saves himself relatively confidently in the Champions League.
It was not until the penultimate match day that the Reds fought their way back to fourth place for the first time. With the 2-0 win in the season finale against Crystal Palace, Liverpool even moved up to third place – and will be able to play in the top clubs again in the coming season. Mané becomes the match winner with two hits.
