As Liverpool continue their winning streak, Tottenham Hotspur are being pushed out of the European competition.

On the 4th (Korean time) at Anfield in Liverpool, England, Liverpool, who played the 28th round of the 2022-2023 English Premier League (EPL), defeated Fulham 1-0.

The winning goal came in the 39th minute of the first half. Liverpool striker Darwin Núñez, running for the ball inside the Fulham penalty box, tripped over Fulham defender Isa Diop’s leg and fell. A penalty kick was called, and kicker Mohamed Salah shook the net. Liverpool kept their one-goal lead until the end and took three points.

Liverpool have recently moved up the table with five consecutive victories. After beating Tottenham 4-3 on the 1st, they rose to 5th place and widened the gap. The difference between 5th place Liverpool (59 points) and 6th place Tottenham (54 points), which have the same number of games, is 5 points. Having reached the right to qualify for the European Football Association (UEFA) Europa League, Liverpool can continue their hopes of participating in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) next season, albeit a small one. They are 6 points behind 3rd place Newcastle United (65 points), who played one less game, and 4 points behind 4th place Manchester United (63 points), who played 2 less games. 메이저놀이터

On the other hand, Tottenham continues to slip in the rankings. In the last 7 matches, including the confrontation with Liverpool, it was only 1 win, 3 draws and 3 losses, and it was pushed out of the top 4 and fell to 6th place. After parting ways with manager Antonio Conte and changing the acting manager to Ryan Mason following Christian Stellini, the situation is not improving.

It is unclear whether he will be able to keep the 6th place. The pursuit is not easy. It is tied with Aston Villa (54 points) in 7th place. They are ahead on goal difference, but the difference is only two goals, so they could be overturned at any time. It is two points behind 8th place Brighton & Hove Albion (52 points), but Brighton played three fewer games than Tottenham. Even if Brighton wins just one of their three games, they could be overtaken.

Tottenham is in a situation where it is impossible to guarantee participation in other European competitions following the fact that it has become difficult to compete for the UCL. If Villa or Brighton are reversed, participation in the UEFA Europa Conference League next season cannot be promised.
