WBA-Tottenham and Manchester City-Liverpool, Gameweek 25: Open Thread
Will today finally be the day when Liverpool gets to beat a top club in the Premier League, preventing Manchester City from narrowing the 10 point lead that Manchester United have on them? Or will City narrow the gap to 7 points or, judging by Liverpool’s form against top clubs where draws are the likely result, is 9 points the likely lead that United will have after today? We shall see today in the game that FOX Soccer is promoting as the game before the game.
In the earlier kickoff today, West Bromwich Albion hosts Tottenham Hotspur. We shall see if West Brom will be suffering any hangovers after the Peter Odemwingie story has occupied their news the past week. The Nigerian striker won’t be playing today, but he’s still the talking point. For Tottenham, meanwhile, they have a brilliant chance to narrow the gap behind fourth place Chelsea to just one point after the Blues lost yesterday in the incredible match at St. James’ Park. Or the Baggies could move back into seventh with a win today.
There are several interesting storylines today. Let’s hope the matches live up to the excitement that we saw yesterday.
WBA starting XI: Foster; Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Popov; Dorrans, Yacob, Morrison, Brunt; Long, Lukaku.
Tottenham starting XI: Lloris, Walker, Dawson, Vertonghen, Assou-Ekotto, Dembele, Parker, Lennon, Bale, Dempsey, Defoe
