TV clash of the ti­tans

Irish Sunday Mirror - - FOOTBALL - WITH NEIL MASUDA

THE thrill of Theresa May tak­ing on Jeremy Cor­byn in a sound­bite-tothe-death TV clash might have perked up those few souls not sent into deep som­no­lence by the in­ces­sant B-word.

But for those of us happy to in­vite Euro­peans into Eng­land to liven up our do­mes­tic lives (no, not you, Mr Farage), just look at what’s in store as tele­vi­sual de­lights this week...

Emery, Po­chet­tino, Klopp, Guardi­ola, Mour­inho and Sarri, all in one week of tele­vised footie – and some of them even more than once.

Today’s derby dou­ble-header at the Emi­rates and An­field are nearper­fect storms.

Apart from Jur­gen be­ing un­able to ro­man­ti­cally in­tone, “We’ll al­ways have Paris”, af­ter the mid­week mud­dle, the two North and South con­tests are fairly even, the ten­sions as high as ever and the quest for brag­ging rights as po­tent. It’s game on! The Citeh be­he­moth should crush its way through the Hor­nets’ nest on

Tuesday be­fore Pep pon­ders how he should dis­man­tle the Chelsea de­fence on Satur­day evening.

But let’s not for­get the Crate Upen­der, who takes on Senor Emery in a mid­week battle that used to be a ti­tle-de­cider, but is now more for plac­ings among the also-rans.

We can take a fair guess at how all those clashes will turn out – and still have a far better idea than May and Cor­byn do in their own co­nun­drum.
