Cardiff City vs Manchester City and Tottenham vs Swansea: Open Thread
Today’s two Premier League matches feature battles between teams from England and Wales. Not that either club features a ton of English and Welsh players on their team, but don’t tell the football supporters who are going to the match that!
In the English corner, we have Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur going up against, respectively, Cardiff City and Swansea City. In both games, it should be a walk in the park for the English clubs, but I would never underestimate the Welsh. Cardiff are set to give a Premier League debut for Danish striker Andreas Cornelius, so it’ll be revealing to see if the Dane can give Cardiff an X-factor.
For Swansea, who will be confident after a 5-1 first leg victory in the Europa League on Thursday night, the hope is that the Swans will decide to play their attacking style of football in this one rather than the defensive tactics they employed when they played Tottenham at White Hart Lane last season, and lost.
