Languagecaster Predictions 2019-20: Game Week 12 – 2019-20 Merseyside Derby and Man Utd vs Tottenham

There is a mid-week set of fixtures this week (on Tuesday and Wednesay) which sees all Premier League clubs playing their 15th game of the season. Interestingly, in Germany when there is a mid-week set of fixtures there they use the phrase, Englische Woche – literally meaning ‘English week’ ( – The German soccer dictionary: meanings, definitions, translations…). This will also be the first time that a new player in the UK broadcasting world will show games to the public – Amazon – which means that there are now three different providers: BT Sport, Sky Sports and now Amazon. This is a busy period in the football calendar with most clubs playing 6 or 7 Premier League games in the month of December, while some teams will also have to play Champions League qualifiers, Carabao Cup semi-finals and the Club World Cup.

New Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho returns to the club that sacked him almost a year ago when Tottenham travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on Wednesday. On the same night the Merseyside derby takes place with Liverpool hosting struggling Everton – can the away side, the Toffees, raise their game and cause an upset to the leaders? We also feature Manchester City’s trip to Burnley and West Ham’s visit to Wolves. Come along and take on the languagecaster team – three points for a perfect prediction and one point for the right result.
