Manchester (Dagbladet): The table is set and ready for a full party at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday. By defeating Chelsea, Manchester City became the 2022/2023 league champions.
In England, it has not been clear for the past 24 hours when the cup will actually be awarded.
When Arsenal lost 3-0 to Brighton on Sunday night, an opportunity opened up that few expected: the Premier League could be decided as early as this weekend – two rounds to go.
On Monday, the local Manchester Evening News reported that the Etihad Stadium will be prepared for a victory party.
If City do not beat Chelsea on Sunday, they will face Brighton on Wednesday next week. If the team decides on the Premier League there, there will be no trophy award. In this case, it will happen in the last away game against Brentford on May 28.
Action was taken quickly
This information was confirmed by major newspapers the Daily Mail and The Sun just before midnight Norwegian time. The newspaper presented the news under the headline “Exclusive”.
City will be confirmed by beating Chelsea at the Etihad. But if Arsenal lose to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, they will be locked out 24 hours early, reports the Daily Mail.
Avisa writes that the gorgeous silverware will be ready for such eventualities – with post-match choreography.
And so, Sunday sails as the biggest day of Haaland’s career.
Pep Guardiola’s team travels to Brighton next Wednesday. But they will not be awarded the trophy at Amex Stadium if victory is achieved this evening. In this case, it will happen at Brentford in the final round of the series, according to the Daily Mail.
The Sun wrote that it could be a cold reception for the league’s chief executive, Richard Masters, if the trophy was handed over on Sunday.
Manchester City is accused of violating 115 points in the English Premier League regulations. Among other things, there will be a breach of Financial Fair Play in the period from the 2009/10 season to the 2017/18 season.
An independent commission is working on the case.
He was called before the decision was made
Haaland has previously won the Austrian championship with Red Bull Salzburg twice – in 2019 and 2020.
He also won the Austrian Cup in 2019 and the German Cup with Borussia Dortmund in 2021.
The Premier League title will surpass everything.
In addition, Manchester City can win the Champions League and the FA Cup this season. The last time an English club won the treble was at Manchester United in 1999.
In terms of the last six league championships since 2012, City players have lifted the trophy away from home once.
But the first thing Real Madrid awaits in the Champions League. The starting point before the second leg of the semi-final is 1-1.
The match will be played on May 17th.
