We’re here. We’re finally here.
It’s been the strangest season in living memory – thanks coronavirus – and the curtain is about to come down on the 2020/2021 campaign. Before that, we’ve got 10 games to get through.
Particularly this season, when hardly any games have been played simultaneously, lineup announcements have been pretty underwhelming. Not today, though. With 20 teams all revealing their XIs together, there was plenty of talking points for Twitter to get stuck into.
The biggest headline? Pep Guardiola’s heartless omission of Sergio Aguero from the Manchester City team probably.
The club’s record scorer is set to depart for Barcelona in the summer and even though City have nothing to play for, Pep did not fancy giving him a run-out from the start. Perhaps he’s saving him for the Champions League?
Just before the game Guardiola set the record straight, revealing that Aguero was carrying a knock. Way to rain on our parade.
On the other side of Manchester, United were doing crazy stuff, picking a wonderfully eclectic line up ahead of their Europa League final next week. They even had a Fish on the bench…
West Ham fans, who stand on the brink of some European trips next season, were not as happy with their starting XI.
Mainly because Said Benrahma was not in it.
Last but not least, Liverpool fans were split over Jurgen Klopp’s selection. Rhys Williams’ inclusion was the main bone of contention.
