Should Tottenham target an FA Cup win?

Should Tottenham target an FA Cup win?

The FA Cup this season hasn't been given respect by all Premier League managers, but teams are now only one match away from the quarter-final stage and surely some clubs will be looking at the competition as an opportunity to win silverware. One club that would welcome a trophy is Tottenham Hotspur, who haven't won anything since 2008. Mauricio Pochettino is building a good team at White Hart Lane and they are beginning to establish themselves in the top four of …

Manchester United vs Watford Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Manchester United host Watford on Saturday and it is important they return to winning ways at Old Trafford as they have dropped too many points at home this season. Their main problem is that they aren't killing matches off and they have collected too many draws. The Premier League is tight at the top this season and draws against teams outside of the top six are no good, especially at home. This is why Manchester United aren't currently in the …

Marcos Alonso - Best Signing Made Last Summer?

Not many people would have thought that the Spanish left-back would have been the signing of the summer when it was announced he had joined Chelsea and few more would hold that view now. However, he has had a hugely positive impact on Chelsea's season and he made the Blues a much better side. The main thing that Alonso has provided to Chelsea is balance. There aren't many players in the squad that are capable of playing as a left …

Chelsea vs Arsenal Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

The early kick off this weekend will have huge ramifications for the title race, with some thinking that three points for Chelsea will put them in a position from which they can't be caught. It hasn't got to that point yet, but the rest of the top six will be hoping that Chelsea lose this against Arsenal. However, for the visitors, it may be a must not lose, rather than a must win. Although they were lucky that four of …

West Ham vs Manchester City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

The Premier League returns during the week and these two sides will be familiar with each other, having played at the beginning of the month in the FA Cup. Manchester City ran out 5-0 winners on that occasion, delivering one of their best performances of the season, but they will be coming up against a different side on Wednesday, as the hosts are playing with confidence. Despite an improvement in performance, City still aren't getting the results that they need …

Manchester United vs Wigan Athletic Preview

This weekend sees Wigan Athletic travel to Old Trafford, marking Warren Joyce’s return to the club after leaving the position as Manchester United U23 manager earlier this season. It will be a nice occasion for him and his players, but the home side will go into the match as overwhelming favourites. They reached the EFL Cup final during the week and they will want to treat the FA Cup with similar respect. Although their priority has to be the Premier …

Analysing Pedro's improvement since his move to Chelsea

Chelsea have now moved to eight points clear at the top of the Premier League table and their extraordinary rebirth under Antonio Conte has been great to watch. Although certain players should be disappointed in their lack of effort last season, there have been others that have been brought to the next level by the Italian. One such player is Pedro. He was okay in his first season, but he was asked to come into a difficult dressing room and …

Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

At this stage of the season, this match will be more important for the home side than it is for Tottenham. The visitors have been in spectacular form, which has seen them climb to second in the table and they currently look to be the biggest threat to Chelsea. On the other hand, Manchester City haven't been convincing in recent weeks and have fallen out of the Champions League places. There are many doubting Pep Guardiola, especially in terms of his …
