Football. This Weekend's Action

Posted on 29th September 2017

Dear Friend,

For our football lovers, there is plenty of action!

Here is a snapshot of the most popular news.

Here goes...

Game to watch – Chelsea v Manchester City

Those at the summit of their respective fields are always willing to widen their knowledge, to embrace new ways of thinking and methods different to theirs. Take Pep Guardiola for example: a man whose views are so entrenched, whose style is so unique, but whose mind is always open to alternative ideas.

“It’s a good lesson for me to see his teams and learn,” said the Spaniard of Antonio Conte in April. The pair deploy different systems and different approaches, but can appreciate the beauty of other journeys on the same route to success.

Player to watch – Marcus Rashford

Even in praising Anthony Martial, it felt as though Jose Mourinho was giving with one hand before snatching away with the other.

“The game adapted to his qualities, the way we play adapted to his qualities too,” Mourinho said after the crushing victory over CSKA Moscow. “He had a lot of freedom and lots of support and lots of quality around him.”

Team to watch – Leicester

The bags are packed, the flight home has been overbooked, someone has misplaced their passport and that dodgy curry last night is starting to take effect. The honeymoon is not over for Leicester and Craig Shakespeare, but harsh realities are starting to set in.

Life started as well as it could have between this couple, Shakespeare becoming the first English manager to win each of his first five Premier League games, and guiding Leicester into the Champions League quarter-finals.

One-on-one battle to watch – Rafael Benitez v Jurgen Klopp

Rarely does a pair of managers come so diametrically opposed to one another. Rafael Benitez is the cerebral tactician and defensive obsessive whose man-management skills are often said to be lacking. He will welcome Jurgen Klopp, the yin to his yang, leader first, coach second, and whose free-flowing football often has to take a back seat as defensive ineptitude takes the wheel.

Benitez is stoic; Klopp is running out of sleeves to wear his heart on. Perhaps the only two things unifying these men are their shared love of football, and Liverpool fans’ shared love of them. One came within inches of delivering the Premier League title; many fans still feel Klopp is the man to finally achieve that dream, despite the currently bumpy nature of this particular ride.
