Premier League Rivalries

Are we destined for another stalemate?

My Team's Next MatchManchester United

For all the banter amongst the fans of the two biggest clubs in England and the most heated rivalry, the recent games between these sides haven't really given us any classics.

The last 4 meetings between Liverpool and Manchester United have all ended in draws - two 1-1s and two nil-nils. The last 6 meetings have all gone under 2.5 goals. So this Saturday morning March 10th at 7:30 am EST will it be worth waking up early to see if we get an exciting game? My answer would be yes but it's always worth waking up when there's money on it?

And I'd wake up a little earlier specifically to see if Eric Bailly gets the nod in the heart of the Manchester defense. United don't give up many goals at home but it would be much more comforting for United fans if it was him tracking the runs of the Liverpool forwards as opposed to Phil Jones or Chris Smalling who have had huge blunders in big games.

Furthermore with Sevilla midweek in the Champions League Mourinho will be militant about cleaning up the defensive errors that were on display in United's thrilling comeback win at Selhurst Park on Monday.

With the second place at stake, anything but a loss will be considered a win for United and I can see them grinding out a result in typical Mourinho style. 5 low scoring draws in a row between teams is rare, but the circumstances and timing of this clash suggest that United will play it conservative.

The North London Saga

Results / FixturesPremier League

Tottenham and Arsenal had very different results midweek against Italian opposition. Spurs bottled their chance at home to advance to the Champions League quarterfinals against Juventus, and Arsenal went into the San Siro and upset the red hot AC Milan.

Both results went against their current runs of form as Arsenal had been shockingly bad and Spurs had looked very solid over the past few weeks.

Now both teams have to play again on Sunday. Arsenal at home to Watford who will be safe from relegation and Tottenham travel to Bournemouth.

I think both teams will match their midweek results. Arsenal will rekindle the good feeling and go on a small winning streak and the Spurs will be hungover from their collapse against the fearless Cherries.

SERIE A: THE 2 HORSE RACE CONTINUES

Juventus vs Udinese

My Team's Next MatchJuventus

And Napoli who were edging Juventus for a long time finally stumbled giving the Old Lady the inside track. What a week for Juve. After looking like they would drop points and give Napoli a shot to increase their lead, they won at the death with their only shot on target of the entire game last weekend at Lazio. A shocked Napoli then lost a wild one at home to Roma.

The Italian Champions then flew into Wembley and snatched a Champions League quarterfinals spot from the inexperience Spurs. The man who scored both winners - the just returning Paolo Dybala.

And now with Dybala back up top and Matuidi back in the midfield Juventus can realize their ceiling as a team. There is no stopping this giant. Not in Italy at least.

The only job we have is to sit back and profit.
