He grabbed his head with his hands, unable to believe how his team had lost. The new owner of Chelsea footballers, Todd Boehly, watched the collapse of the “Blues” right at the stadium at the end of the English league match against Wolverhampton (2: 2).
Chelsea led two minutes before the end by two goals when Lukaku sent her into the lead in the 56th minute from a penalty kick and two minutes later the Belgian striker scored with a shot to the post.
However, the “wolves” returned to the game in the 79th minute by a fresh substitute Trincao and the captain Coady equalized in the seventh minute.
The third team of the table lost points for the third time in a row and still does not have a certain position in the top four of the Premier League.
Boehly, co-owner of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball and Los Angeles Dodgers baseball club, leads a group of investors who will pay 4.25 billion pounds (over 122 billion crowns) for Chelsea. The transaction has yet to be approved by the English football authorities and the British government.
Liverpool drew Tottenham 1: 1 at home and hesitated to fight for the championship. Coach Jürgen Klopp’s charges jumped to the top of the scoreboard ahead of the Manchester City rival, but the reigning champions are good at Sunday’s match with Newcastle.
After a goalless first half, the guests opened the scoring after Son Hung-min finished Kane and Sessegnon in the 56th minute. The South Korean striker scored the 20th league goal of the season.
The “Reds” put the opponents under pressure and in the 74th minute Díaz equalized with a point blow, but the finalists of the Champions League did not catch up anymore and hesitated in the home competition at the Anfield stadium after a series of 12 wins.
Manchester United suffered a 0: 4 debacle in Brighton and lost the theoretical chance to finish fourth, the last to take part in the next Champions League.
Caicedo was the first to score in Brighton in the 15th minute. The home team then took the Manchester United defense off with a further three goals from the 49th to 60th minute. Trossard first assisted Cucurell and Gross and then closed the score himself. The six “Red Devils” out in the Premier League lost for the fifth time in a row, the ninth Brighton achieved its highest victory in the English league.
Watford became the second to the second league after a 0: 1 defeat at Crystal Palace. Zah’s converted penalty from the 31st minute decided the result. In addition, Kamara was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle.
Coach Watford Hodgson failed to return to the former team’s stadium. “Hornets” leave the highest competition after two years. In the last round, Norwich was the first to win the relegation this season.
