Manchester United legend Gary Neville has praised both Simon Mignolet and Joe Hart ahead of Saturday’s title race six-pointer and believes both ‘keepers will have to be up to their best. S
peaking in his fortnightly column for EA Sports Ultimate team, Neville said:
“I think both Joe Hart and Simon Mignolet are excellent goalkeepers. Mignolet is currently ranked as the top ‘keeper in the EA SPORTS Player Performance Index but Hart has been excellent in the past few months.”
He went on to highlight set pieces as one of the defining aspects which could swing the match and reckons both sides will have paid extra attention to them in training.
“I think one of the key areas on Sunday will be set pieces, I really think they are going to be huge in this game,” he said.
“Both teams have had a free week and will have worked so hard on their set pieces and the keepers will really need to dominate their area in set pieces.”
One thing for certain is that Sunday’s match could very well come down to small details. With so much at stake, it could turn out to be a tense and cagey affair, with one moment all it takes to determine a winner.
With that being said, Neville could be right to point out set pieces as an area of focus.
Sunday’s game is sure to entertain for fans of both sides as well as neutrals, as the title race heats up.
