Check our our review of the 36th Premier League round, as we list the three things we learned from the midweek action in English football.

Gameweek 36 was on the Premier League program from Tuesday to Friday, as we’re getting closer to the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

We saw 25 goals in 10 matches across England this week, none of which was a goalless draw.

But what did we learn from the latest action in arguably the best league in the world? Check out below in this article.

Liverpool won’t be joining the “club 100”

Liverpool won’t break Manchester City’s record for most points won in a single Premier League campaign.

The new champions fell to a 2-1 defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates and the highest amount of points they can reach until the end of the season is now 99.

It means Jurgen Klopp’s Reds won’t be joining the elite “club 100”, which only consists of Man City, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus from the top five European Leagues.

The Champions League race to be decided in the final round

Chelsea, Leicester City and Manchester United won their games in the 36th Premier League round, taking the Champions League race to the very last second of the 2019-20 campaign.

Chelsea visit Liverpool next Wednesday and play host to Wolverhampton in the final matchday.

Manchester United will host West Ham, while Leicester will travel to Tottenham in the next round, before a direct clash between the Foxes and the Red Devils on the last day of the season.

Late heartbreak for Wolverhampton at Burnley

Wolverhampton dropped out of the race for a top four finish, after conceding an unlucky 95th-minute penalty on their visit to the Turf Moor.

The game ended in a 1-1 draw, as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side has officially no chance of reaching one of the Champions League spots on the table.

However, they will have another opportunity to secure a place in the most elite football competition through the Europa League, which will continue in August.
