EPL Match of the Week – Tottenham v Leicester City
It will be a crucial week for Arsenal, Liverpool, City, Chelsea and Tottenham to make a mark and take the lead over the remaining top 4. The top 5 are separated by 1 point, making this year’s EPL a sheer joy to watch, it will be as they call it “a photo finish”.Week 9 of the EPL startsSaturday 29th October 2016, with Sunderland v Arsenal kicking off at 12:30 PM (BST).
Our match of the week features reigning champions Leicester who will travel to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham Hotspur. Pochettino’s Tottenham is still undefeated, but their attacking form is suffering with the absence of Harry Kane through injury. Spurs are the only undefeated team in their 9 EPL fixtures, winning 5 and drawing 4, Leicester City howeverwill not be a walk in the park.
After constantly looking like a shadow of their former selves, Ranieri’s Leicester City finally broke their three match winless drought with their 3-1 win over Crystal Palace. Leicester would love to make their mark by defeating the “undefeatables” but it will be no easy fixture for the Foxes.
Core members Harry Kane & Toby Alderweirald will be definitely missed in this crucial clash with no return date mentioned for Alderweirald while Kane is supposed to be back on the 6th of November 2016. Nampalys Mendy will not feature for the Foxes and is expected back on match day 29th October.
Week 10 will also feature:
EPL Week 9 Results
The highlight of week 9 was Jose Mourinho’s return to Stamford Bridge, with the special one (not so special one now!)going home after his controversial sacking from the bridge in December 2015. It could have been a fairy tale return but football does not work with Cinderella’s, dwarfs and fairy god mothers.
While Antonio Conte was ready and had a plan, Jose Mourinho had Pogba & Zlatan(which basically meant he had a shit brick and an old horse).United were the laughing stock of the weekend, poor in defense and the worst attacking intent I have seen in the season so far. Football365 placed Jose Mourinho & Manchester United on top of their “Premier League Losers” list.
United were all over pitch at the Bridge but with no avail. Once the first 29 seconds had passed the Blues were in-charge. Pedro stormed through the Man United defense and scored the fastest goal of the season setting the Stamford Bridge loyal ablaze with excitement.
Gary Cahill doubled the lead with a free header from Hazard’s corner kick and a majestic 15 yard screamer rested in De Gea’s goal bagging 3 points for Chelsea. The night was still not over for the Red Devils though, as Ngolo Kante made the Manchester defense suffer & look useless when he skipped through them like lightening to make it a memorable night for Chelsea fans.
Here are all the results from Week 9:
