Huge game today for Liverpool

10 Feb

Liverpool looks to pick up its first win of the season over Arsenal in three tries this afternoon.  The Reds are in fourth place coming into today’s game, only five points back from Arsenal, so a win today would be huge.  Arsenal defeated Liverpool, 2-1, on Dec. 13 in league play after knocking them out of the Carling Cup by the same score in October.

Liverpool’s got to be confident about their chances today after holding off Everton in the derby on Saturday.  The squad has been putting together some good results thanks to some quality finishes from Dirk Kuyt.  Defensively, they have gotten their act together and are playing as a much tougher and tighter unit.

Today’s other big match is Manchester United at Aston Villa.  Villa sits in seventh, but is only three points back from Liverpool.  United is two points behind leaders Chelsea, who play at Everton this afternoon.

In other interesting Premier League news, Portsmouth has one week to get its shit together financially.  The club has a huge outstanding tax bill and has failed to pay its players and staff on four occasions this year.  It’s a sad state of affairs for the club that has been around for 112 years.  Hopefully someone will come in to buy the club and help get it back on its feet.
