After securing three points yesterday behind Emre Can’s wonder goal, Liverpool are primed to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League for the first time in three years. The Reds have a very manageable schedule down the stretch.
With four games to play in the EPL season, streaking Tottenham trails Chelsea by four points in the title race. Spurs still have a chance to finish atop the table, but they can’t afford to give away any points down the stretch. Although Chelsea dropped two games in April, a favorable schedule bodes well for their title chances.
Tottenham will play three of their final four games on the road, and they certainly have the tougher schedule. Here’s a look at their remaining games:
West Ham (A)
Manchester United (H)
Leicester City (A)
Emre Can, Liverpool's roving German midfield destroyer, is more than meets the eye, like a transformer. On the surface, he's a big, athletic, crunching central midfielder. When you look a little closer, though, he can do this:
Pedro's left-footed goal against Everton today was so good it almost (almost) made me forget that, as a Tottenham fan, I'm supposed to hate Chelsea – especially at the moment as the Spurs sit four points behind in the race for the Premier League title.
It most certainly was good enough for me to question whether or not Pedro is left-footed.
