Gameweek 21 of the Premier League promises to be one for the ages. After 20 weeks of pulsating action, Liverpool has emerged as the team to beat. Jurgen Klopp's men backed by heavy spending in the summer have been relentless. The Reds are yet to taste defeat and lead defending champions, Manchester City by 7 points.

Once again, Tottenham Hotspur under Mauricio Pochettino has been punching above its weight. Despite not making any buys in the transfer market, the team has kept pace with the leaders.

Manchester United has been on a different level since Jose Mourinho's sacking. Under caretaker boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Red Devils are flying with 3 wins and 12 goals under the Norwegian.

Well, I love football (a look at my body of work tells a better story). However, I also love other sports and from time to time, pen articles concerning basketball, tennis, boxing, and e-sports. I follow these sports as much as I can, this explains why I write on a lot of different topics ranging from analysis and tactics to transfers and a whole lot more (reviews, previews and everything in between). Real Madrid is the team closest to my heart (same goes for Rafa Nadal, Raul Gonzalez, Mike Tyson, Mortal Kombat and the San Antonio Spurs).
