Tottenham’s new stadium WILL be the only place to host Champions League football in London this season after another night of incredible drama in Barcelona ended with Lucas Moura striking a late, late equaliser to send Spurs through to the last 16 of the Champions League.
Ever feel that you need to be in two places at once? As we sat high up in the Camp Nou, watching Barcelona and Tottenham play out a 1-1 draw, eyes were stuck fast on updates from the San Siro. It was like watching Tony Blair’s nervous smile in Sedgefield in May 1997 while Michael Portillo grimaced in Enfield. All you needed was to splice yourself in half. Was that really too much to ask?
It has been billed as the Battle of Britain – or at least England. But tonight’s showdown in Manchester is more than simply a contest to decide the best English side in Europe, or even which of two rival cities has this season’s bragging rights, writes .
IT may be misplaced confidence, it may be over-optimism, it may be kidology, but United’s Ander Herrera is adamant that bitter rivals, City, are not on the verge of an era of dominance in English football, even if they lift the Premier League trophy today by winning the Manchester derby.
For journalist and professional footballers struggling to decide on who should be named the player of the season, tonight’s Champions League quarter-final between Liverpool and Manchester City, Mo Salah against Kevin de Bruyne, looks like the perfect opportunity to bite the bullet and make a final choice.
