Tottenham’s undefeated streak in the league continues.
Tottenham, led by coach Angie Postekoglou, beat Sheffield카지노 United 2-1 in the 5th round of the 2023-24 English Premier League (EPL) held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England at 11 pm (Korean time) on the 16th.
As a result, Tottenham went five games without a loss since the opening season. They are in second place with 4 wins, 1 draw, and 13 points. They are closely chasing first place Manchester City (15 points) by two points. Behind Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal (13 points) formed the fourth place.
A total of 6 teams went undefeated in the EPL until the last 4 rounds. However, in the 5th round, West Ham lost 1-3 to Manchester City, and Brentford lost 0-1 to Newcastle. As a result, among the 20 EPL teams, only four teams have not lost until the 5th round: Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal.
The EPL secretariat is watching with interest the undefeated status of these four teams. On the 18th, through official social media (SNS), “Now only 4 teams remain. “With West Ham and Brentford suffering their first losses of the season last weekend, only Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal remain undefeated.”
Of course, it is extremely rare to finish a season without a loss. In EPL history, the only team to win the championship undefeated is Arsenal in the 2003-04 season. At that time, Arsenal won the EPL with 26 wins, 12 draws, 0 losses, and 90 points. It was an amazing performance that was talked about for more than 20 years.
Among Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool, and Arsenal, who will suffer defeat first? Tottenham faces Arsenal, Liverpool, Luton Town, and Fulham in that order. It is a critical 2-game series between Arsenal and Liverpool. Moreover, the match against Arsenal is an away game.
Manchester City is scheduled to play Nottingham Forest, Wolverhampton, Arsenal, and Brighton. Physical fitness is key to the UEFA Champions League (UCL) group stage schedule during the week. There is also an away game against Leipzig (Germany).
Liverpool faces West Ham, Tottenham, Brighton, and Everton in that order. There is an away match against LASK (Austria) in the UEFA Europa League group stage during the week. Arsenal has matches ahead of Tottenham, Bournemouth, Manchester City, and Chelsea. There is a Champions League schedule during the week.
Of the four undefeated teams, Tottenham is the only one not participating in UEFA competitions. Also, due to early elimination from the League Cup, there is no League Cup schedule. This is why Tottenham appears to have a slight advantage in the EPL schedule at the beginning of the season.
