Liverpool's Season So Far: A Start of Two Extremes

In his first press conference as Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp had said that the club should be competing for titles within a few years – may be four. While his first season did not bring any joy in the league, it did bring two cup finals for the Reds, albeit they lost both of them. Last season, there were no cup finals, but Liverpool were second in the league around Christmas and there was hope of a title run at …

Chelsea's Season So Far: A Roller Coaster Ride

Ever since Manchester United won their eighteenth title in 2008-09, which was their third successive title in as many seasons, the Premier League title has been very difficult to defend. Manchester United came close to repeating the hat-trick of three titles in three years between 2010-11 and 2012-13, but the 2011-12 title was snatched away from them in injury time on the last match day of the season by their neighbors. Since that run from the Red Devils, none of …

Managers in the Premier League are treated differently by the fans of their clubs depending on their past achievements and pedigree. It took almost close to two full seasons for Liverpool fans to question Jurgen Klopp’s tactics, methods and selections. While for others such as Slaven Bilic, the sword of getting fired has been hanging over their heads ever since they took over their current jobs. Bilic currently is the second most favourite (odds of 3 to 1) to lose …

Liverpool Vs Huddersfield Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

The Premier League is becoming a league of reunions of star managers and their assistants. Last season it was Jose Mourinho and Aitor Karanka. This season it is Jurgen Klopp and David Wagner. Klopp’s Liverpool will host Wagner’s Huddersfield on Saturday for the first league match between the two sides in almost 45 years.

Chelsea Vs Everton League Cup Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

Antonio Conte and Ronald Koeman must have been the shortest bets for sacking before this weekend’s fixtures. But Conte’s team had the tenacity to claw back from a goal down at home against Watford. Everton could not do that against Arsenal at Goodison Park. The result is that Koeman has been sacked and when Everton travel to Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night for the Round of 16 tie in the Carabao Cup, they will most likely be led by an …

Huddersfield Vs Manchester United Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

It is not every game week that two teams that have won three consecutive top division titles play each other. Only four teams have achieved this feat – Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal are the easily identified of those four. The fourth team to have achieved this is Huddersfield Town. This Saturday will see Huddersfield host Manchester United after a very long time – more than 46 years. Huddersfield are no longer the force that won those three league titles …
