Versatile Tottenham: the Best Defensive Unit in the Premier League

Versatile Tottenham: the Best Defensive Unit in the Premier League

Tottenham's versatility in defence has made them the most formidable unit in the Premier League and they will prove that in Jan Vertonghen's absence over the next two months. Spurs dealt with Toby Alderweireld's injury earlier this season and history suggests they will be able to cope with Vertonghen's too. Granted, the team will be weaker without the presence of the centre-back - like any team in the Premier League would be - but Tottenham have enough options to cope …
AFC Bournemouth: A Small Club With a Big Heart

AFC Bournemouth: A Small Club With a Big Heart

It would be fair to say that five years ago only a few knew that there were three clubs from the South Coast of England and a club called ‘Bournemouth’ actually existed. Portsmouth’s abrupt decline and journey to the fourth division of English football had coincided with the revival of Southampton, who managed to finish 14th in their return to the Premier League in 2012. At that point in time, this club called Bournemouth had assumed the form of being …
Liverpool's strength in numbers under Klopp

Liverpool's strength in numbers under Klopp

Although this season is still in its early stages, some players have stood out for their respective clubs. For Liverpool, as a fan, I've found it refreshing that rather than just one or two players standing out, it's been a handful and much more of a team effort, than outstanding individual displays. Here though, is a look at some of those who have helped Liverpool's impressive team effort thus far. Adam Lallana is a player that can divide opinion and …
Is Man City's Stellar Start Down To Guardiola Or The Fixture List?

Is Man City's Stellar Start Down To Guardiola Or The Fixture List?

When Pep Guardiola joined Manchester City, it was expected that City will become even more of a dominant force in the Premier League. After all, Pep came to City with a 74.2%-win ratio in 408 games at Barcelona and Bayern Munich, accumulating on an average 2.37 points per game. He also joined a team brimming with talent, reflected by its growing silverware count over the last few years. So, while it was expected for them to be dominant, it is …
How Liverpool’s New Main Stand Will Play its Part in a Bright Future

How Liverpool’s New Main Stand Will Play its Part in a Bright Future

The Reds have made an emphatic start to the 2016-17 Premier League campaign and the new Main Stand will play an important part in the club’s future success. Jürgen Klopp’s men have won five out of their first seven league fixtures so far this season, including victories over Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City. They managed to secure a draw at White Hart Lane too and topped off an impressive start with a second home victory against Hull City when they …
Examining Everton's Start to the Season

Examining Everton's Start to the Season

Despite their surprising loss against Bournemouth at the weekend, Everton have had a fantastic start to the new season.  Ronald Koeman has come in and won four out of his first six matches in charge, putting Everton in fifth. After the last two seasons under Roberto Martinez the Blues will be happy just to stay out of the bottom half this year, but they have had a genuinely impressive start to the season.  We'll take a look at their start, see …
What is going wrong for West Ham?

What is going wrong for West Ham?

As things stand, it would be fair to say that West Ham are falling apart in disappointing fashion under Slaven Bilic. Currently as low as 18th in the Premier League with just three points in the bag from five games, West Ham's plans to start the season on a high have already been blown up in smoke, especially after being knocked out of the Europa League by Astra Giurgiu in the first knockout round of the tournament and following the pathetic …
Season Preview: Tottenham Hotspur 2016/17

Season Preview: Tottenham Hotspur 2016/17

Tottenham had an excellent campaign in 2014/15 and will be competing in the Champions League this season. Although they challenged for the title last year, Spurs still finished below rivals Arsenal and that left a sour taste in the mouth for the fanbase. They have managed to augment their squad effectively this summer adding depth in key areas. Pochettino rotated well last season and they have a squad that is good enough to do well in both the league and …
