Wednesday’s match between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur (2:55pm ET, ESPN2) is enormous not only because it’ll help decide which club will qualify for the Champions League, but it’s also an important crossroads in the history of these two important English clubs.
The victor in the race for fourth may decide who will rise to the throne and be accepted into the Big Four to replace Liverpool. Or, as has happened in previous years to clubs such as Everton, it may be a temporary stay in the dizzy heights of the Premier League. I may be completely wrong, but I’m inclined to believe that Liverpool’s inclusion in the Big Four is over and either Tottenham Hotspur or — more likely — Manchester City will take the place of the Reds.
Such is the enormity of this one match at Eastlands on Wednesday. There is so much to play for. There is so much on the line. And thanks to the fixture gods, we can all watch it in amazement and hope that the match is played at a feverish pace befitting the importance of the game.
