What else can you ask for this weekend? It doesn’t get any better than this! Four big teams in the premiership are in action against each other? I will not miss this for anything!
Arsenal goes into Saturday’s game at Anfield with a lot of confidence after a thrilling 5-2 defeat over their rivals Tottenham last weekend and they will hope to continue their impressive performance this weekend as they come up against another stiff opposition, Liverpool.
If there is anything to play for between these two teams, it is for the fourth spot on the log, the only guaranttee they have to get a slot in the UEFA champions league. And of course for pride! Arsenal currently sits at no. 4 with 46 points while Liverpool occupies the 7th position with 39 points, creating a 7-point difference between the two.
For me what will make this game very interesting and competitive is what I call “the clash of desires”; Arsenal’s desire to stay at the fourth spot or move up and Liverpool’s desire to narrow the gap for a possible move to the fourth spot. Quiet a match waits us on saturday at 7:45 a.m. ET.
And if you think that is all there is to your weekend, you are 100% wrong. Third placed Tottenham takes on second placed Manchester United at 7:45 a.m. ET. What a cracker of a match that will also be!
There is great news for Manchester United fans; Wayne Rooney, Antonio Valencia and Tom Cleverley are back in the side to hopefully, deliver the goods.
Unfortunately for Tottenham, their swift attacking and influential left winger, Gareth Bale will be missing this tantalizing encounter at the White Hart Lane this Sunday, as a result of a hamstring injury. Tottenham however, will feature key players like Juan Mata, Demba Ba and David Silva.
With these line-ups coming up, I can bet there is only one of two places you will be this weekend. It is either Andfield or White Hart Lane.
I am tempted to predict the score, but naaa… It’s too risky.
