Manchester City: The Rightful Champions-Elect

Manchester City: The Rightful Champions-Elect

Eleven Premier League games unbeaten, 38 goals scored in all competitions, eight points clear at the top of the table and unbeaten in their Champions League group. It's not been a bad start for Manchester City in 2017-18. Pep Guardiola was criticised last season after Man City failed to bring home any silverware but after the start his side have made this year, he has received nothing but praise. And rightly so. City are the most exciting team in the …
Why Jose Mourinho Isn't the Right Manager for Manchester United

Why Jose Mourinho Isn't the Right Manager for Manchester United

Jose Mourinho is now in his second season as Manchester United manager after years of chasing the job. However, he hasn't been fully settled in the post and continues to be linked with other clubs, despite being relatively safe in the position. There are reports that the United board are worried their manager is eyeing up a summer switch to PSG due to fearing that the current Europa League champions will be unable to compete with Manchester City in the …
Arsenal's Season So Far - As Expected

Arsenal's Season So Far - As Expected

Ten matches into the season and Arsenal find themselves sixth in the table with 19 points.  That said, they're only four points behind second-place Manchester United and only below Liverpool on goals scored.  Considering that, it's tough to evaluate their start to the season. The Gunners have averaged 1.73 points per match so far.  If that were to continue, they would finish with about 66 points, a total that would likely see them finishing in the Europa League spots again.  …
Chelsea's Season So Far: A Roller Coaster Ride

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 …
Son Hueng-min: A second-string star

Son Hueng-min: A second-string star

Tottenham's recent dismantling of Liverpool and Real Madrid at Wembley has seen their temporary ground begin to feel a little bit more like home. Yet a dire first-half display against Crystal Palace on Sunday left some suspecting that another Wembley slip-up was impending. But midway through the second-half, Hueng-min Son stepped up to stroke in a fine curling effort and score a crucial winner for Spurs. It was also the goal which made Sonny the highest-scoring Korean to grace the Premier League, surpassing notorious 'big-game player' and Arsenal slayer, Park Ji-sung. In truth, Son shares many similarities with his Korean …
Why every manager must be scared of taking the Everton job

Why every manager must be scared of taking the Everton job

There seemed to be a real sense of optimism around Everton when the club from Merseyside blew off about £140 million on roping in a host of quality players from other fellow clubs from the country and those from abroad. The signings didn’t just satisfy the need for quality reinforcements but also raised expectations among the Toffees faithful, who expected their club to give the mighty top six a run for their money. You can’t blame the fans, can you? …
Is Henrikh Mkhitaryan good enough for Manchester United?

Is Henrikh Mkhitaryan good enough for Manchester United?

The man signed from Borussia Dortmund last season soon became a fans favourite, hailed as Manchester United's 'midfield Armenian, but the 28-year-old has begun to divide opinion. When you look past the unbelievable scorpion kick goal last season and his admittedly crucial goal in the Europa League final, the contribution of Mkhitaryan in big games, in particular, has to be put under the microscope. The United number-22 started the season all guns blazing, recording five assists in a record-breaking three …
Why Tieumoue Bakayoko's start at Chelsea has been an encouraging one

Why Tieumoue Bakayoko's start at Chelsea has been an encouraging one

Chelsea went into the weekend's match with a lot of pressure on them and recorded a crucial victory against Manchester United to strengthen their position in the Premier League. It looks unlikely that they will challenge to retain their title, but they will be looking to remain in touching distance of Manchester City. Antonio Conte made a few changes to his team and one of the most interesting ones was the decision to play Tieumoue Bakayoko in a more advanced …
