GOOD MORNING, FOOTBALL FANS
CHELSEA’S vital revenge win over Leicester and Brighton’s 3-2 comeback win over champs Manchester City were overshadowed by SunSport’s exclusive Harry Kane revelations.
We revealed this morning that City and neighbours United are ready to offer Tottenham’s wantaway England striker an £80MILLION five-year contract.
Back on the pitch, Tuesday night was potentially decisive in the race to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Having been beaten 1-0 in the FA Cup final by Leicester, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea beat the Foxes 2-1 at Stamford Bridge and guarantee their top-four status ahead of the final round of Premier League fixtures.
Meanwhile, the defeat for Brendan Rodgers’ team means Liverpool can move above them into fourth place with a win at Burnley this evening.
If the Reds do manage to leave Turf Moor with a victory, they will be level on points with Leicester but with a slightly superior goal difference heading into the last day.
Yesterday also saw a sensational return of fans for Brighton as they fought back from two goals down to defeat ten-man City 3-2 at the Amex Stadium.
The Seagulls’ supporters were bouncing at the end of the match, with Graham Potter’s men inflicting just a fifth league defeat of the season on Man City.
There are five other games this evening aside from Burnley vs Liverpool, with the most notable aspect of most of them being that supporters will be back in the stadiums.
They may be largely dead rubbers, but Everton, Newcastle, Tottenham, Crystal Palace and West Brom will all welcome their fans back to their respective grounds.
And Spurs and West Ham are still fighting for Europa League football, so they will want to finish strongly.
We are also just 48 hours on from Harry Kane reiterating his desire to leave Tottenham at the end of the season.
But Lilywhites coach Ryan Mason batted away any speculation in his pre-match press conference.
He said: “Like I’ve said all along I can’t speak about next season, whether that’s a manager or a player. What I do know is that the fans will get behind us. They’re excited about the game tomorrow, along with the players.
“We’re looking forward to it, looking forward to a game of football, with fans who are going to make a big difference for us and hopefully we can get three points.”
Could tonight be Kane’s farewell match to the Tottenham fans?
