MADRID, 20 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The ninth day of the Premier League will propose two very interesting duels in London, where José Mourinho and Pep Guardiola will meet again under the command of Tottenham and Manchester City, and in Liverpool, where the reigning champions will host the current leader, Leicester City.
At Tottenham Hotspur Stadium the twenty-fifth direct confrontation will take place in the careers of Mourinho and Guardiola, who comes to the reinforced duel after his recent renewal with the ‘citizens’ for the next two seasons.
The ‘Spurs’, second to a single point of the leadership, have the best streak of the Premier, marked by three consecutive victories and seven days undefeated. Much of the credit goes to Harry Kane, who is going through an exceptional moment and this season he only needed 14 games to add 13 goals and 10 assists.
For its part, Manchester City is in the middle of the table, after adding only three wins in seven games, and needs to overcome a direct rival to avoid losing more credit. Guardiola will continue with the important loss of the injured Agüero, but with a Ferran Torres in top form who has just scored a hat trick against Germany.
The other focus of the day will be on Anfield, where Liverpool have chained 63 league games without losing, the longest streak in their history. The previous one took place between 1978 and 1980 and was liquidated by Leicester, which four decades later has another opportunity to become a villain ‘network’.
The ‘Foxes’, who dream of repeating the 2016 title, have one point more than Liverpool, but are weak at the King Power Stadium, where they have conceded their two defeats of the course against West Ham and Aston Villa. In addition, Chelsea will try to get into the ‘Champions’ zone in Newcastle and Manchester United will receive a West Bromwich Albion put in relegation.
