EPL: The Title Run-In

Finally after the international matches, some normalcy resumes and the English Premier League resumes. At this stage, anything can happen and it is looking like an exciting title run-in could be on the cards. Obviously, all eyes in Asia especially will be on two key matches i.e. Man Utd-Villa and Fulham-Liverpool. If all goes according to form, then this could be the start of the most interesting title run-in.

A smarting Red Devils host a shell-shocked Villans in Old Trafford in a game that Fergie will not want to lose. But he will have to avoid defeat without the Terrible Trio of Nemanja Vidic, Paul Scholes and Wazza "I'm gonna be a father!" Rooney. United will surely miss all three for this game. They do have able replacements in Anderson, Evans and Berbatov.
Liverpool go to Craven Cottage full of confidence. They even have the added boost of knowing that Steven Gerrard, the world's most complete midfielder, has signed a two-year extension to his contract. Dirk Kuyt also has signed. This indicates a formidable sense of belief within the Liverpool ranks that this could be their breakthrough season. Fulham are no pushovers and they have done well against the Big 4, having only lost to Arsenal. When both Gerrard and Torres play this season, Liverpool have won 7 out of 9 matches. There is no more excuse for Rafa but to field a settled side, after all his demands had been met by the Liverpool board. The expectation is an away win for the Reds and the supporters have deserved that.

Getting ready for an action-packed weekend....

Yes for sure. Zinedine Zidane and Kaka have said it as well. The driving force of Liverpool FC, and interesting Real Madrid in the process.
