Tuesday's Champions League miracles at Anfield goes straight into the history books as one of the greatest sensations ever. With injuries on key players like Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino Liverpool were calculated.
But the collective got up at nine, got into the decisive battle at Barcelona in the other semi-final, with Trent Alexander-Arnold's cheeky hörnvariant.
the away Team had all players inside the penalty area – they were not on their heels, but they stood and slept – when the total of unselected Divock Original pressed in crucial 4-0, and Liverpool went to the final with a 4-3 total.
marks a trend reversal. The two teams, Manchester City and Liverpool, playing in their own division, they are vinstmaskiner that left the other top teams far behind them.
Before the shortlisting different 23 points from second-placed Liverpool and third placed Chelsea. So great has been this gap that has never been in the past. The average over the 26 seasons of the Premier League existed is 8,6 points between the second and third.
Manchester City has 13 straight three pointers, has won 17 of the last 18 league matches.
Liverpool have won the last eight matches, and has 16 straight without a loss.
Regardless of whether Manchester City or Liverpool take the title so this year ligatvåa to stay at a record high scores, which normally should be enough to become champion.
tätlagen is the quartet, Chelsea, Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United. Law as a mixed high and low, as not managed to take home the ”safe” score against inferior opposition, and that simply lacked the capacity to take up the fight with the two suveränerna.
instead, They have got to focus on saving what can be saved. That is to say, to fight an internal battle for the two remaining places in this autumn's Champions League.
Ligacupvinnaren is direktkvalificerat for the Europa League, but because the team this year are Manchester City, a team of six in the table – just like the teams five – a place in the tournament and do not have to qualify.
, and is thus ready for the uefa Champions League. Tottenham is likely to make Chelsea the company. Then have Arsenal probably finish with a victory away against Burnley to maintain fifth place.
the Fact is also that the teams behind the top six has started to eat itself up. Wolverhampton, Everton, Leicester and Watford, has, thanks to the tv contract as the Premier League concluded, the economic conditions required for the next season to blow themselves up and challenge for the top six.
Manchester City and Liverpool so superior?
the Clubs are well-maintained. They have the league's best coach in Pep Guardiola and Jürgen Klopp, champions that creates a harmony where everyone in the team feel involved, whether they are start - up or bänkspelare.
And it seemed very evident when Liverpool operated out of Barcelona.
When Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita was missing, and Andy Robertson was forced off injured at half-time, stepped Divock Original, Giorginio Wijnaldum and Xherdan Shaqiri up in crucial roles.
in Addition, have Liverpool and Manchester City good scouting, broad troops, and they are acting smart on the transfer market.
When Manchester United paid just over a billion dollars for Paul Pogba slantade Liverpool up one-tenth of the total sum when you signed letters Andy Robertson from Hull.
When Alexis Sanchez could leave Arsenal pulled Manchester City out of the possible deal, because Pep Guardiola believed that Sanchez's high wage demands would have a negative impact on both the harmony of the squad that the club's financial situation.
Sanchez ended up instead of koufax Manchester United, then-manager José Mourinho made the chilean the league's highest paid player with a weekly wage of breathtaking sek 4.2 million.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær with a problem on the neck. Sanchez ranks, but has three years left on his contract. And the speculators do not stand in the queue with the given lönekravet.
And according to british media reports, is Antonio Valencia, Ander Herrera, Juan Mata, Marcos Rojo and Matteo Darmian on the road away from the club. The first three have played out their contracts and can go for free.
in Addition, the missed the Champions League-the place that all players get a pay cut by 25% next season. Something that hardly attracts players as goalkeeper David De Gea and midfielder Paul Pogba to stay.
Solskjær must renew the contract with The Gea as soon as possible, in order to avoid that the spaniard can go as bosman next summer.
Other players that play on contract which runs out next summer, Marcus Rashford, Eric Bailly, Nemanja Matic and Ashley Young.
when Manchester United and Arsenal dominated the Premier League. It was before Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea, before Manchester City managed to scramble out of the equivalent of League One, before Tottenham and Liverpool moved forward.
The major ”Big Two” became the first of the ”Big Four” and then ”Big Six”.
But above all, Manchester United have got the experience to tradition, and a fat wallet is no longer sufficient to belong to the absolute top. It also requires other values to build a top team, skilled coaching, good scouting and harmonious spelartrupper.
Manchester United have three of the league's five highest-paid player on the payroll gives no imprint in the table. When the mode was the sharp in the fight for the top six was still just to play 1-1 against the series ' worst teams, already nedflyttningsklara Huddersfield.
towards the top since it last won the Premier League 15 years ago. Now trying to manager Unai Emery sweep up the rubble that Arsene Wenger left. And he does it with a limited material.

with a low budget and a good development. Harry Kane and Harry Winks will come from its own ranks.
And if you add up transfersummorna for Hugo Lloris, Toby Alderweireld, Jan Verthongen, Kieran Tripper, Eric Dier, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen and Heung-min Son will be up in about the same amount that Manchester United paid Juventus for a single player – Paul Pogba.
And then one can easily observe that Tottenham scored terribly much better return on invested capital.
It has stretched all the way to the final of the Champions League, after mirakelvändningen in Amsterdam. But cup games are cup games, and over 38 tough ligaomgångar have Tottenham not been remotely.
A contributing factor is that Tottenham have not had activity in the last two transferfönstren. Last player in is the Wednesday night hero Lucas Moura, who was bought from PSG in January last year.
under new coach Maurizio Sarri. The Italian came in with a clear idea of how the team should play. And it surely has not really put out.
the Worst was, during a few weeks in the winter, with the 0-2 against Arsenal, 0-4 against Bournemouth and 0-6 against Manchester City.
Sarri managed to reverse the negative trend and a move to a Champions League spot. But one should remember that it is not only built on the team's own ability, but also on the competitors ' inability.
Something that weighs on Chelsea for the coming season is that Fifa decided to give the club transferförbund in the next two transferfönstren, for that you violated the regulations, and signed a contract with a large number of minors of foreign youth players.
