England: Premier League
Match start: 16:00 (GMT+2)
With due respect to Tottenham, Liverpool, Arsenal and all other EPL clubs the main events of the forthcoming 7 round will become the matches in London and Manchester with the participation of 3 leaders of the champions’ race:
Manchester City – 16, Manchester United – 16, Chelsea – 13, Tottenham – 11, Liverpool – 11 …
In London at Stamford Bridge will be held another battle of Chelsea and Manchester City. And the final result of this super match will be in favor of the main Citizens’ rival at the champions’ race.
Manchester United (the head coach José Mourinho)
If the hosts of Stanford win, United will be able to become the only leader of the champions’ race by the results of the 7th matchday. If the team of Josep Guardiola wins, Chelsea will withdraw into the shadows for some time.
But if the battle of these two rivals ends with a draw, the simultaneous loss of points of two main challenges will work on behalf of United. But here we have to name one necessary condition – the team of José Mourinho has to win over its closest rival.
Crystal Palace (the head coach Roy Hodgson)
On the 11th of September according to the results of 4 rounds the first job swap of coaches of English season was made at Selhurst Park, where instead of dismissed Frank de Boer the new head coach of Palace became the former coach of the national team of England Roy Hodgson. What had changed for 3last weeks for this London club? Absolutely nothing, only the number of losses had increased and now has transformed into 6.
It is quite possible that the beginning of his work at Selhurst Park would be different but the new coach of Palace had no luck with the calendar schedule. As after two lost matches to Southampton (0:1) and Manchester City (0:5) the next strong rival of the red and blues will be the team of José Mourinho. This match will be held at Old Trafford and the possible winning of the hosts here is obvious.
Manchester United – 1.15, draw – 7.00, Crystal Palace – 15.00;
