United must take chances at the Bridge

It’s safe to say that following United away from home last season was a slightly different experience from previous seasons. Every other week, I’d meet up with the boys and we’d all say the same thing; “I really hope we smash someone away from home for a change”. It never really happened. Last season United took just 25 points away from Old Trafford all season. So far this season in just 11 games they have taken 26 points. So what’s …

Next up the visitors at Anfield are Tottenham Hotspur. The corresponding game earlier in the season will be remembered by Liverpool fans for all the wrong reasons. Agger came off injured in the 27th minute, replaced by Coates, and then immediately Charlie Adam was sent off in the 28th. Discipline-wise a lot of things went wrong, not helped by the referee, but Skrtel, Coates and Suarez all got yellow cards between the 28th and 63rd minute when Skrtel received a …

On Saturday, Everton continue their daunting October stretch with a trip to London, where they face a Chelsea side running into some ominous form. David Moyes initially always found Chelsea the toughest nut to crack, failing to beat them on numerous occasions. A Louis Saha double at Goodison Park two seasons back gave Moyes his first ever Premier League victory over the Londoners who, at the time, were the only side the Scot had not conquered during his Everton tenure. …

Another big weekend of football coming up and the game of the weekend is Liverpool v Arsenal. The early kick off on Saturday afternoon and Liverpool may be without their captain and talisman Steven Gerrard after he was withdrawn from the England V Netherlands game after a third of the game and the influential centre back Daniel Agger.

Next up for Liverpool is a game big game on Saturday morning against Arsenal, one of our big rivals for that elusive Champion’s League spot. Of course Liverpool go into the game on the back of a huge psychological lift having lifted the Carling Cup against Cardiff after a nerve-shredding penalty shoot-out. It’s hard to determine or even measure what sort of lift that will give the Liverpool squad for the rest of the season. But hopefully it will give …
