For most Premier League clubs, playing Man City twice in one season is tough enough. The Citizens continue to run away with the title, blowing away the competition almost every week so spare a thought for Burnley
We’ve just had a thrilling weekend of FA Cup football and now there are two rounds of Premier League action to enjoy. There’s no doubt that the standout tie from the traditional end of January midweek fixtures is Man Utd’s trip to Wembley Stadium to take on Tottenham.
When Liverpool beat Man City with an all action, top class performance, there were inevitable questions about just what it is that’s stopping Jurgen Klopp’s men from challenging for the title. Well, Liverpool very kindly provided football fans with the answer in the two games that followed.
It’s that time of year where punters are starting to think about the Grand National. We’re still almost three months away from the big race at Aintree but the trials for the National have already started in earnest.
The Grand National is a notoriously difficult race to predict. In 2015, few people were talking up the chances of Many Clouds but many of those who saw Oliver Sherwood’s charge win the Cotswold Chase at Cheltenham had a piece of the 25/1 that the bookies were offering about him at Aintree.
