Can Watford’s Serie A Imports Push Them Up the Table? – Part 1: Mauro Zarate

Can Watford’s Serie A Imports Push Them Up the Table? – Part 1: Mauro Zarate

This winter transfer window has been an interesting one. It proves a couple of points about the English Premier League and the nature of transfers in the winter. First, there is a widely held belief that the winter transfer market is overpriced and it seems that top six clubs generally have to over pay for what they buy in January. In case of a debate, I just name three Liverpool transfers – Suarez, Coutinho and Sturridge to counter this, but …
Analysing Pedro's improvement since his move to Chelsea

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 …
Realising the Importance of Victor Wanyama at Tottenham

Realising the Importance of Victor Wanyama at Tottenham

This current Tottenham Hotspur side isn’t one that gives a fan the vibes of their team of the 2009-10 season, does it? The presence of the likes of Luka Modric, Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon gave Harry Redknapp’s team a wholly different look than the one that Mauricio Pochettino has, as things stand. The likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Christian Eriksen may not be as recognisable faces of the game as Bale or Modric, but that is exactly what …
Ander Herrera - Analysing Manchester United's complete midfielder

Ander Herrera - Analysing Manchester United's complete midfielder

Manchester United may be in 6th position, but they have showed signs of being a really good team in recent weeks. The general consensus is that they have the quality to finish in the top four and if they maintain their recent performance level, it should only be a matter of time before they start climbing the Premier League table. Jose Mourinho has found his strongest starting eleven and one key player for him this season has been Ander Herrera. …
Alex Iwobi's Metoric Rise

Alex Iwobi's Metoric Rise

In the last year Alex Iwobi has gone from reserve team star to an established Arsenal first teamer.  Making his Premier League debut on Halloween 2015, the 20 year old's stock has been on the rise ever since. This time last year Iwobi had played just over a minute of Premier League after making his league debut off the bench away to Swansea City.  A year on, he started for Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium and was a contender for man of the …
How Oriol Romeu Has Resurrected Himself and Southampton

How Oriol Romeu Has Resurrected Himself and Southampton

While Claude Puel’s ever improving Southampton may be enjoying a decent campaign during his first season in charge in England, his side has adapted quickly to his methods. Currently tenth in the table, behind South Coast rivals Bournemouth on goal-difference, the Saints were expected to play out a season of transition under a manager who had never managed outside France before. But the manner in which the side has performed could come in as a surprise to those who believed …
Why Liverpool Are Right In Not Pursuing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Why Liverpool Are Right In Not Pursuing Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

While the world was preparing for the new year celebrations, and Liverpool were preparing for a footballing marathon, the transfer rumour mills that are seemingly always turning and churning through up an interesting combination – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to Liverool, in January. The rumour claimed that Liverpool were interested due to Coutinho’s continued absence and especially due to the absence of Sadio Mane throughout the month of January as he will be away on national duty. It went on to claim …
Is Christian Eriksen finally coming back into form?

Is Christian Eriksen finally coming back into form?

Christian Eriksen has been criticised by some sections of the Tottenham support over the course of this season, but he is beginning to find his form and played a vital role in the side's 4-1 victory over Southampton on Wednesday evening. Tottenham have struggled to score goals this season, especially from open play and have relied heavily on Harry Kane and their full backs to produce in the attacking half. They have dropped points in matches that they shouldn't due …
