Coverage underway…

Sky Sports coverage is underway, but if you’re expecting to see anything about Sheffield United or Tottenham… you’re out of luck.

It’s all about the Manchester City vs Liverpool. At least there’s the hope that Roy Keane will jump at Jamie Carragher for no reason whatsoever.

Twitter reaction

Stuart: That has to be a 4-4-2 from Jose Mourinho tonight, with hopefully Son Heung-min and Harry Kane up top. Unless Steven Bergwijn is playing as the 10. Another Giovani Lo Celso masterclass coming. Expecting a big win tonight!

Akhilesh: Brace yourselves for another “where is Tanguy Ndombele?” Tweet storm.

Mac: Does anyone understand this XI by Jose Mourinho? You could drive a warship through that midfield. As long as Mourinho refuses to switch to 4-3-3 which benefits his players more… I have doubts.

Noted. I’ll alert him immediately, Mac.

Evening…

Hello everyone and welcome to our LIVE coverage of Sheffield United vs Tottenham from Bramall Lane.

Guess what? Yep, there’s more football tonight.

I would complain but the 100-day coronavirus-enforced suspension of all leagues has taught me to be thankful for any football.

Even the weird month where Belarusian football took over.

Anyway, we’re focusing on Tottenham’s trip to Chris Wilder’s Sheffield United, who haven’t exactly enjoyed life since the resumption.

Three top-flight fixtures, zero goals, one point and six conceded… oh, and they’ve not had more than one shot on target in any of their games in the Premier League.

I think they need a project restart of their own. Let’s get going!
