Weekday’s Matches In the EPL And La Liga Preview

(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Manchester United will be in action today when they face an in-form Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford. United will hope to be in and around the top-four by the end of the season, but they currently sit seven points in arrears of third-placed Spurs, and as such, this appears to be a must win for Erik ten Hag’s men.

The Red Devils have won the last three Premier League (PL) H2Hs, although they’ve not posted a run of four straight victories against Tottenham since 2009-10. Yet finally matching that run could be on the cards as United are unbeaten in 12 of their last 13 PL home games (W7, D5), a run which includes impressive wins over league leaders Arsenal, and Liverpool.

Even though Tottenham have been hampered by injuries to key players such as Richarlison and Kulusevski, they remain in the hunt at the top of the table following a run of 15 unbeaten games across the last 16 in PL action (W11, D4). Their only defeat during that time came against their bitter rivals Arsenal, and they can now move into second with victory here.

While in other matches, Liverpool will look to continue from where they left on Sunday against struggling West Ham United after silencing their nay-sayers with a hard-fought 1-0 win over the seemingly impenetrable Manchester City. Emotions ran high all game long, culminating in Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp getting sent off, meaning he faces the prospect of a touchline ban for this game.

Fortress Anfield played its part, ensuring the Reds extended their unbeaten home PL streak to 28 matches (W21, D7), scoring an average of 2.57 goals per game in that time. The hosts will fancy their chances of extending that record against visitors West Ham who Liverpool have lost to just once in their last 49 home top-flight fixtures (W36, D12) dating back to 1963!

The Hammers need to put an end to their poor run on the road though, having lost nine of their last 13 away PL matches (W2, D2). Boss David Moyes is often given a hostile welcome to Anfield due to his former role as Everton manager, yet he should instead be a welcome sight for the home crowd given he’s never won a PL fixture at Anfield in 17 attempts (D6, L11).

All EPL Fixtures are as follows: Manchester United Vs Tottenham (20:15),Liverpool vs West Ham, Brentford Vs Chelsea, Newcastle Vs Everton, Bournemouth Vs Southampton, all matches will kick off at 19:30 (GMT +1).

Elsewhere, La Liga matches for the weekday fixtures see table toppers Real Madrid will be in action against Elche who sits at the bottom of the table.
Madrid opened a three-point lead at the top of the table by beating fierce rivals Barcelona 3-1 on Sunday, leaving them as the division’s only unbeaten side (W8, D1).

Other matches included, Cadiz vs Real Betis, Valladolid vs Celta Vigo, Real Sociedad vs Mallorca all matches to be shown live by 18:00 and 19:00 GMT+1 respectively.
