Judgment on the match Arsenal – Leicester in round 34 of Premier League

Arsenal and Leicester meet in the most important bend of the season. Both aspire to win, but which team will do it?

Arsenal and Leicester met in round 34 – perhaps the most important round for the two teams for the remainder of the 2019/20 season. With the home team, not winning this match as they excluded themselves from the race. Meanwhile, Leicester also does not want to lose third place.

Arsenal’s mission is to stop Leicester

Arsenal had a very good preparation for the climb when they won 2-0 on the difficult opponent Wolves field. It was the fourth consecutive victory of Mikel Arteta’s teachers and students. Currently, “Gunners” are only 6 points behind the top 5 and relive hope to win tickets to the Champions League next season.

Therefore, a victory against third-ranked team Leicester will help hope that becomes more realistic with the English capital team. After this match, Arsenal also clashed with Tottenham and Liverpool, so if not winning against Leicester, the hope of attending the Champions League of the “Gunners” will be dissipated.

As of before the 34th round, Leicester scored 63 goals and conceded 31 times – the third best attacking team and the second best defense in the tournament. In contrast, “Gunners” only had 49 goals but received 41 goals.

It can be said that part of the reason for Leicester’s decline in the recent period is because the pair of pillar Jamie Vardy – James Maddison did not maintain the good form as the beginning of the season.

The result promises to be very competitive

Leicester’s away ability in 2020 is very poor when losing 4, drawing 2 and winning only 1 match. Already 5 consecutive away games, the army led by coach Brendan Rodgers did not know the smell of victory (draw 2, lost 3 matches) and no match scored more than 1 goal.

In contrast, Arsenal under Arteta coach at home was very good when winning 6/8 matches and up to 5 clean sheets in those 8 matches.

In particular, 5 consecutive Premier League seasons against Leicester at Emirates Stadium, Arsenal are the winning team. Even in the 2015/16 season, “Foxes” made history with the championship, Arsenal still won 2-1 when rivals on North London.

And if Leicester only had Vardy to hope, then Arsenal had two cannons – Aubameyang and Lacazette. With all of these premise in his favor, “Gunners” can afford to keep 3 points to stay at the Emirates.

English football has a headache with the transfer after Brexit

Britain officially left the European Union from February 1, 2020. A new era opened up with a lot of changes in the rules in the future relationship of England in all areas. English football is also facing great challenges with the workforce turned upside down.

With the United Kingdom out of the European Union, the English national football championship, the Premier League is at a crossroads. The Premier League is Europe’s most lucrative tournament, beyond the sport and becoming the most watched entertainment industry in the world, first of all thanks to the contribution of players from around the world.

Two thirds of internal players has gone to foreign football teams

More than 330 foreign players currently play for 20 Premier League clubs, which accounts for 65% of the Premier League’s population. The majority of the foreign players mentioned above come from countries in the European Union, enjoying the common community status.

While England was a member of the European Union, they played football in England without having to apply for a work permit on the basis of the general rules of the free circulation of property and people.

But from now on when Brexit is a reality, the game will change. Non-English players will need to apply for a work permit. The legal procedures as well as the criteria for obtaining a license to play football in the UK are very strict and complicated.

The changes

Players who want to play in England must prove they do not occupy the labor market of the English players and they must be players who have had a certain number of caps for their country’s national team or they must Gain a certain value in the transfer market.

In addition, the UEFA European Football Association also stipulates in a match that only 5 players outside the European Union can register to play. Previously, players from the Union who came to England to play football were considered domestic players.

The rule has allowed Arsenal or Manchester City clubs to launch the starting line-up without any English players. This situation is now over. EU players are now classified as foreign players like other countries. Besides, they must comply with the quota of 5 players per game.

Conclusions

Such changes will upset the staff of the clubs and affect the quality of the Premier League, the most attractive football tournament on the planet and the most money in the world. The English national football championship is the most widely televised tournament in the world with huge TV royalties.
