MATCHDAY: Liverpool players to raise Premier League trophy

  MATCHDAY: Liverpool players to raise Premier League trophy A look at what’s happening around European soccer on Wednesday: ENGLAND: PREMIER LEAGUE Liverpool's players will finally get their hands on the Premier League trophy — and will aim to mark an occasion for which the club has been waiting 30 years by beating Chelsea at Anfield. Third-place Chelsea also has plenty of motivation because a victory would secure a Champions League qualification spot for next season. Before that game, Manchester United hosts West Ham and is hoping for a win to move three points clear of fourth-place Leicester. United would then just need a point from its last game of the season — at Leicester on Sunday — to seal a Champions League spot.

LONDON — Fulham secured an instant return to the Premier League on Tuesday after one season away by beating west London rival Brentford 2-1 in the Championship playoff final.

Joe Bryan scored twice in extra time at Wembley to give Fulham the win in what is widely called the most lucrative game in football. Fulham will receive at least 135 million pounds ($176 million) over three years after securing promotion, a year after being relegated from the world's richest football league.

3 teams to chase 2 Champions League spots on EPL's final day

  3 teams to chase 2 Champions League spots on EPL's final day LIVERPOOL, England — Chelsea was too charitable as Anfield title party guests. Before collecting the the Premier League trophy, Liverpool won 5-3 on Wednesday to prevent Chelsea from sealing a Champions League spot. It leaves two of the four spots in Europe's elite competition still up for grabs in Sunday's final round of games. Chelsea just needs a point against Europa League-chasing Wolverhampton to seal a top-four finish. And there will be a Champions League qualification showdown between Manchester United and Leicester.

LONDON — Brentford can earn more than 0 million over three years in additional revenue by beating west London rival Fulham on Tuesday to secure a return to English football's top division after a 73-year absence, according to an analysis by accountancy firm Deloitte.

Fulham owner Shahid Khan failed with a bid to buy Wembley a year ago, and his team had to celebrate in an empty stadium on Tuesday due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Bryan broke the deadlock after catching goalkeeper David Raya by surprise with a free kick from nearly 35 yards in the 105th minute as both teams expected a cross into the box.

“The goalkeeper comes ridiculously far off his line,” Bryan said.

The left back netted again in the 117th minute after playing a one-two with Aleksandar Mitrovic to clinch promotion in Scott Parker's first full season in charge of Fulham.

Brentford, which boasted a 59-goal strike force in Said Benrahma, Bryan Mbeumo and Ollie Watkins, was kept in check in the most important match of the season.
