The visiting team’s players handled the meeting very differently, taking to the field with the task of ensuring their support and doing everything to achieve their goal from the start. Burnley was in better shape before the match, as he was nine points ahead of the table and was enough for them even a tie in a live match to achieve their goal.
The match between the two teams – with the exception of Sheffield United – which scored the fewest goals in the league this season, was well paced, but of course without soccer fireworks. Burnley’s players often aimed direct balls from their backlines at their attackers. One of those passes to Matt Vedra in the 35th minute ended with Ashley Westwood showing the ball and a goal from that player.
The visiting players had already scored in the 21st minute, but then the referee rightly decided that Fedra had allowed the ball to leave the field before his team-mate passed by. However, Sean Daikey’s players were not satisfied with the goal, and before the end of the first part of the match, Chris Wood scored his twelfth goal in the Premier League this season. It was already his forty-sixth strike in the highest league in Great Britain. The striker did not have a particularly difficult task, as he used his opponents’ terrible defense and took his team ahead with a shot into the crossbar.
In the second part of the match, Fulham tried to protect himself from relegation, but none of the attempts allowed him to even score a contact goal. That way, we already know all of the most important decisions in the Premier League. Manchester City is likely to be the champion, 10 points ahead of Manchester United with one less match a year. Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United were all relegated from the league.
As a consolation, you can also win well in the tournament. Under the contract currently in effect, clubs for the Championship, First League and League Two receive approximately £ 120 million per year. In the Premier League, there are more than 10 times as much (£ 1.6bn a year).
Fulham fans will, however, have bad days as it was the third time Craven Cottage has been relegated from the Premier League in the club’s history.
