Aston Villa and Sheffield United’s position on the rankings are surprises after eight rounds in the Premier League 2020/21.
Last season, Liverpool owned the best defense in the Premer League when they only received 33 goals. After 8 rounds in the Premier League 2020/21, Liverpool received 16 goals. The defending champions are conceded just below Leeds United and West Brom (17 goals).
Coach Juergen Klopp constantly complains about Liverpool’s defensive ability. However, this is the season “The Kop” has bad luck because of a series of defensive pillars. Virgil van Dijk is more likely to end the season because of a ligament rupture. Fabinho was pulled back to the center-back but injured. Trent Alexander-Arnold was injured in the last match against Man City. Recently, Joe Gomez extended the list of Liverpool’s sick.
Manchester City had a slow start to the season this year. With Man City, they won 12 points after 7 games and ranked 10th. In Pep Guardiola’s career as a manager, he and the team never started so badly in the domestic league. Man City dropped the score in 4/7 matches, including a bad 2-5 home defeat against Leicester City.
Man United is worse than Man City
Man United is worse than Man City when only 10 points after 7 matches, ranked 14th. This is a strange season when all Premier League clubs are down to form. MU ranked 14th, but there was one game left. If he wins the remaining match, MU is only 3 points behind the top 4 and the situation of Solskjaer teachers and teachers is not irreversible.
In the Premier League 2019/20, Aston Villa waited until the final round to successfully relegate. This season, Aston Villa surprisingly won 15 points to rank 6th and has one game left. On October 5, Aston Villa created a seismic with a 7-2 win over Liverpool. In the last match on 9/11, Aston Villa defeated Arsenal 3-0 at Emirates.
In the summer of 2020, Sheffield spent more than 60 million euros to recruit recruits. They brought in Rhian Brewster (26 million euros) and Aaron Ramsdale (20.5 million euros), but the achievement is disappointing.
Not Mohamed Salah, Harry Kane, or Sergio Aguero, who is leading the scoring list is Dominic Calvert-Lewin. The Everton striker had 8 goals in 8 games, equal to the performance of Son Heung-min. Calvert-Lewin’s excellent performance once put Everton at the top of the chart. However, Everton ran out of breath in recent matches and fell to 7th place.
