A review of Saturday’s action from the English Premier League sees Spurs and Manchester United claiming vital victories in the race for a Champions League place.
Pundits wax lyrical about The English Premier League’s (EPL) ‘Big Six’. In reality, it’s a ‘Big Two’, as Chelsea and Manchester City are the only teams to have snaffled a title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign came to an end, Leicester City’s aberration excepted.
That leaves a ‘Sort of Big Four’ of Spurs, Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal. Each season, the goal is to qualify for the UEFA Champions League, an achievement as monumental as receiving your first fake I.D.
On Saturday, two of the ‘Sort of Big Four’ were in action, with Spurs taking on Championship bound Huddersfield at White Hart Lane, and Man Utd entertaining West Ham.
