Today begins a fabulous week of football as the Champions League returns after its three month winter break, followed by UEFA Cup matches on Thursday, a return to the Premiership on Saturday and the League Cup final on Sunday.
And the best part about the next several days is that it’s completely unpredictable.
The first knock-out round of the Champions League has resulted in the best teams in Europe. So it’s entirely possible that PSV Eindhoven could beat Arsenal, Porto could defeat Chelsea, Lille could get one over on Manchester United, while Liverpool could surprise Barcelona.
Compare that to the Premiership, and the only real shocks we’ve seen in the ENTIRE season is Arsenal doing the double over Man United, West Ham beating Man United in Curbishley’s first game in charge, Sheffield United defeating Arsenal and Spurs, and Middlesbrough getting three points against Chelsea at the Riverside stadium.
