EFL Cup success for United would send out a warning to league rivals

EFL Cup success for United would send out a warning to league rivals

Manchester United put down a statement on Tuesday evening when they swept past Hull with ease to record a 2-0 lead in the first leg of the EFL Cup semi-final. They just have to finish off the job later this month and then they will have secured a place in the final at Wembley. It will be the club's first opportunity to win silverware this season and more significantly, it could be Jose Mourinho's first chance to lift a trophy …

Yaya Toure is Still an Important Player for Man City

Yaya Toure is Still an Important Player for Man City

The Ivorian was left in the shadows following Pep Guardiola's arrival but he seems to have done enough to fit his way back into the side. Yaya Toure was involved in a lengthy stand off with the former Barcelona manager after his agent made negative comments about Guardiola and refused to deliver an apology. Toure had been outcasted because he wasn't showing enough effort and determination in training and it wasn't until mid-November when he returned to the frame, making …
Liverpool have the foundations, now they need winners

Liverpool have the foundations, now they need winners

Liverpool have now got everything in place to succeed, they just need to become winners. Jurgen Klopp has turned the first team into an inspired group of players eager to impress, to express themselves and most importantly, succeed. Liverpool have not had a team bursting with so much talent since the side under Rafa Benitez in 2008 that mounted a similarly impressive early title challenge. Javier Macherano, Xabi Alonso, Steven Gerrard (in his prime,) Jamie Carragher, Pepe Reina; they were …
Liverpool Would be Mad to get a Sadio Mane Replacement in January

Liverpool Would be Mad to get a Sadio Mane Replacement in January

There is no need for Jurgen Klopp to go fishing in the January transfer window for a replacement for Sadio Mane. The Senegalese is expected to join his national side for the Africa Cup of Nations and will miss a number of Premier League fixtures at the start of the new year. Mane will be a huge loss to Klopp's side because he has already scored six league goals this season, as well as notching up five assists and has …
Top teams could be separated by Christmas due to fixtures schedule

Top teams could be separated by Christmas due to fixtures schedule

The 2016-17 season has been full of twists and turns so far and Chelsea have captured the feel of the campaign perfectly. Antonio Conte’s team reflects the inconsistencies that have been shown so far but their recent form has been nothing short of spectacular. Chelsea have recorded six victories in a row and have not conceded a single goal since they suffered a humiliating 3-0 defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates last month. Their tight 1-0 victory against Middlesbrough last …
Tottenham's Missing Link: Kane or Alderweireld?

Tottenham's Missing Link: Kane or Alderweireld?

Tottenham have been plagued with a number of major injuries this season and Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld were perhaps the two most important players to suffer. The duo are both hugely influential to Mauricio Pochettino's side and their absence has certainly been felt. Spurs currently sit in 5th position in the Premier League, behind rivals Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. In their last seven games they have failed to pick up a victory, though their 1-1 draw against …
Draws are no good for Tottenham if they want to win the Premier League

Draws are no good for Tottenham if they want to win the Premier League

Tottenham desperately need to pick up a victory against Arsenal in their next Premier League clash to avoid falling behind the league leaders. Mauricio Pochettino's side have picked up four draws in their last five games whilst their arch rivals, Arsenal have started to pull away. The Gunners are level on points with Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the Premier League table but Tottenham's inability to grab a winner against Leicester means they have now fallen out of …
