Heading towards most decisive game in Premier League history

English Premier League

Manchester City are at home to Bolton today and Manchester United play at Tottenham tomorrow. It could be that the fixture on April 30th at the Etihad Stadium will turn into one of the most decisive in the 20 year history of the Premier League. Neither side think they will drop a lot of points between now and then so they have reason to believe they will continue to do well.

City face struggling Bolton today and have nine games before the meeting including Chelsea at home and Arsenal along the way and Carlos Tevez two weeks away from match fitness.

Tottenham will be the hardest game between now and then at White Hart Lane, for United. United welcome the return of Wayne Rooney, now fit again after his throat infection, and boosted by a late win at Norwich six days ago. The one thing that could cost them is the complacency in waiting so late before playing their best. In reality, City probably have to avoid defeat against United if they are to clinch their first Premier League title with Mancini admitting that United will probably win 11 points from now to the end and that they need to do the same.

Rumours and counter-rumours abound for England Manager title…

With Harry Rednapp the favourite for the England Manager title, but a lot of playing down and mis-information emanating from the Football Association, nevertheless, the pressure is on Tottenham to start thinking seriously about a replacement. Everton’s David Moyes, celebrating 10 years’ in charge at Goodison Park is currently being rumoured.
