Shades of the Old Manchester United in Late Win at Watford

Shades of the Old Manchester United in Late Win at Watford

Manchester United had to dig deep yesterday afternoon to leave Vicarage Road with three points. With key injuries coming out of the international break you would have been forgiven for thinking that Man United would struggle away at Watford. No Rooney and Martial left United with no recognisable striker on the park against a side that has been difficult to break down since their promotion to the Premier League. After conceding to a late Troy Deeney penalty it seemed that …
Arsenal at a Familiar Crossroads

Arsenal at a Familiar Crossroads

Twelve games in, a quarter of the Premier League season gone, and Arsenal sit joint top with Manchester City, with 26 points apiece.  Once again, seemingly inevitably, that same old question pops up: Does Arsenal have it in them to win the title? It isn’t a question of whether they can do it, whether the overall quality is there, or even, as is often discussed, whether the squad has the striker needed to win the Premier League. As Gunners and …
Chelsea Down With The Blues

Chelsea Down With The Blues

There is a famous saying that goes – “The bigger they are, the harder they fall” – and nothing else seems to best describe the situation that Jose Mourinho is facing at the moment. It is indeed interesting to note how Chelsea were the triumphant, deserving and strong winners of the Premier League title last season and, today, how the mighty have fallen! Mourinho had never lost seven leagues games in a single season in 15 years as a manager …
How Far Can Leicester City Go This Season?

How Far Can Leicester City Go This Season?

Leicester have had a fabulous start to the season, which is even more surprising when you consider many pundits had them down as one of the three to go down after Claudio Ranieri was appointed. The Italian has had a mixed record in management during his career, with his failure with the Greece national team being a particular low point as he oversaw losses to both Northern Ireland and the Faroe Islands. However, he has still managed some of the …

Possible Changes Mourinho Could Make

Possible Changes Mourinho Could Make

Title-defenders Chelsea had pretty high expectations surrounding their team prior to this season. Based on last season’s domination, everybody expected them to win again, or at least put up a good fight in order to defend the title. However, the dismal start has sent worry waves across the Chelsea fans, and it is shocking to see the champions in this state. It all started in the opening fixture of this season's campaign when Swansea City showcased an unexpected fragility in …
EPL Assessment: Above, Below and In-line with Expectations

EPL Assessment: Above, Below and In-line with Expectations

With Premier League teams taking a break as we settle down for some more Euro 2016 Qualifying matches, it's the perfect time to assess which teams are performing above, at, or below, expectations in the 2015/16 season so far. There are four games done, 34 to go, but already it's possible to see who has spent the summer performing useful improvements on the team, and which teams need major surgery in order to move forward. Above Expectation Leicester City have …
Could West Ham be a Surprise Package This Season?

Could West Ham be a Surprise Package This Season?

West Ham opened their Premier League campaign with a victory over Arsenal, in what was the best display of the opening weekend. The perfect combination of tenacious defending and skill in attack saw them take the three points at the Emirates Stadium after many thought they would struggle without Sam Allardyce at the helm. Although it is very early to judge sides, it looks like the Hammers will be difficult to beat under Slaven Bilic. They have a talented squad …
