All to play for Europe today

europa-league-1418338658Today will mark the final game of the Premier League fair table. On the 5th May, the last time the table was updated Liverpool were top of the table just one point ahead of West Ham who were on 1125 points with Everton 10 points behind the Hammers in third place.

In the three games since the last update West Ham have picked up five yellow cards, three against Burnley and one apiece for Villa and Everton.  Meanwhile both Liverpool and Everton have picked up seven yellow cards each with Everton’s Seamus Coleman picking up a yellow card every game.

Everton take on Spurs today while Liverpool face Stoke away. Liverpool sit in fifth place in the Premier League and look like they will already qualify for Europe but if they fail to win at Stoke today and both Spurs and Southampton win they could find themselves in seventh place this evening of out of the European places unless Arsenal win the FA cup.

Yellow and red cards make up a small percentage of the Fair play league scores. Teams receive -1 point for each yellow card and -3 for every red card. Up to 10 points are awarded for positive attacking play and behaviour of the team’s supporters earns another 10 points. Respect towards opponents and respect to the referee make up 7 points each while behaviour of team officials can score six points.

  1. There’s also points for artistic interpretation, each teams tea ceremony and the coaching staff do a dance routine…….roll up for the hippo ballet.
    Europe here we come,I think,going to check with Stephen Hawking first

  2. How many points for chewing and laying down on the job,
    Are there points for saving energy because you can’t get any fitter,
    What about being loyal when picking the team so that your boy can get 2 goals this season

  3. Will Slowlan finally get his 2nd goal of the season.Will Sams consistent playing of his old crock finally pay off.Will he give Lil Kev the penalty to take if we get one.Ffs this obsession with playing Nolan is a joke.

  4. Well 20 mins in Liverpool 2 goals down Spuds 1 up Liverpool no longer in 6th place so we are going to need to finish top of F P league to go into Europe,
    Nolan will get booked or sent off he is kicking Antonella because he is so slow

  5. Lets see what happens,so many people guessing & talking out of their stats cabinets atm,most clueless,a bit like hippo 😉

  6. Liverpool 3 down but I yellow card Cole trying his best to get booked now 3 fouls in 7 mins
    Everton no yellow cards not much attacking football either
