Statistically, Manchester City can still get relegated. Statistically, Everton can still win the league. Welcome to the tenth episode of the Premier League where just nine points separate fourth-placed Chelsea and nineteenth placed Bournemouth.
Jose Mourinho will be a man on a mission this week at Old Trafford if he feels that United still hold their chance to challenge their neighbours. A Premier League home game against a side who had taken seventeen points more from last season will be a big test if they wish to achieve substantial this term.
For Spurs, a Premier League away game against a rejuvenated United side, and a home game against Real Madrid within a few days is what the section of the fans have been dreaming for years. Although a major drawback is an injury to Harry Kane as he has been already ruled out of this fixture with a hamstring strain. A draw perhaps is the most desirable result for both the managers.
After surprising Jose Mourinho’s army last week, David Wagner will be in a lightning mood as he prepares for this Premier League week at Anfield and too against one of his closest friends, Jurgen Klopp. As two of the attacking managers lock horns, it is a pity that Liverpool will be without their two Ballon d’Or nominees as Mane is yet to train while Coutinho picked up a groin injury at a very eerie time. Well, Huddersfield’s biggest problem has been goals and it all comes down to how the practise sessions have been proving them for the past week.
Arguably England’s most decorated defensive manager against the most lethal attacking side in the world at the moment, Tony Pulis will be on a mission to stop a City side who have scored 25 goals more than the Baggies in the Premier League this season and also conceded just 4 goals in the process. Last time out, Pep confessed it was quite impossible to stop the Baggies if they got around 7-8 corners and set pieces, so the main mission was to keep the ball as much as they could.
Marco Silva has always been a man on a mission whenever he has been given the onus to manage a club. This time too, they sit right in the sixth spot, just one point separates them from the Champions League spot. This week it might just be an easy game against Stoke City as Mark Huges has been a mess himself. Nothing is working for him as his players are not even showing the interest to win on the pitch leading them to terrible results. This week could finally end them in the relegation zone depending on results elsewhere.
The weirdest thing happening at Southampton is the rare sight of Sofiane Boufal on the pitch, as Mauricio Pellegrino is yet to be convinced whether he is good enough to start a Premier League game, forget completing ninety minutes in a match. Well, last week’s rare piece of geniuses ushered home the winner right within minutes after his inclusion on the pitch it is to be seen whether he finally gets a start and convinces Pellegrino. Life is sometimes tough for some of us.
