Manchester United vs Tottenham Hotspur EPL 08-09: Preview and Live Score

(This entry was originally published on Thursday, April 23rd, 2009)

Manchester United is almost assured of winning the title of English Premier League football this season. The supporters and the players are perhaps in a more relaxing mood and they are not worried about this match against Tottenham Hotspur. However, I know that Alex Ferguson will not take them lightly because he knows that it is almost the end of the season and he just needs to be on guard for another few weeks and then he can have a lot of success.

In fact, next Wednesday, Manchester united will be against Arsenal in Champions league semifinal match. So, a strong performance in this Saturday will help to increase the confidence level of the players. Thus, this match has got now added significance because of the champions league match later next week. Well, they should be happy that in the season they suffered much less injury compared to many clubs but the bad news is that Gary Neville and John O’Shea have suffered injuries and both of them will be out of action for the next few weeks.

This injury will surely make the club some weak in the defense area and it will put their players on acid test in the champions league semifinal matches against arsenal.

On the other hand, Tottenham Hotspur is in the ninth position and they have something to play for too as Sebastian Folks corrected me. In fact, they are trailing by the 7th placed club Westham by just 1 point and 8th placed Fulham have same amount of points like Tottenham (44 points from 33 matches) but Fulham is on the 8th position now on goal difference. Until the 7th position in EPL, you get an opportunity to play in Europe next season. Having said that, they are trailing Manchester united by 40 points and it shows the difference in quality between these two clubs in this season.

The match is taking place at the stadium of Man united and because of this matter even perhaps the most optimistic Hotspur supporter is not expecting any convincing win. Well, I feel that there is something to be optimistic about because in the corresponding fixture earlier this season that took place in the home ground of Tottenham Hotspur, it was a 0-0 draw and I remember that in that match, Hotspur players played very well and put a lot of pressure on the opponents. This time, I think that there is the same expectation at least among some players and the coach of the club. Not only that, even in the Carling Cup, the two teams played and Alex Ferguson’s team won by Penalty shootout.

If Alex Ferguson is worried about injury then the same goes for Hotspur coach too because he has some bad news that one of his key players is out of action because of injury.

Some websites will provide live score for the match. BBC Football does it and also there is livescore.com. Well, we plan to do the same thing in our Updates part of this blog. Hopefully, we will have you with us.
