Flurry of Late Goals See Manchester United Joint Top of the League

Another 4-0 win for Manchester United, this time coming against an Everton side that had lost their last three games in a row in all competitions. After an early goal from Antonio Valencia, only their fourth out of 16 in total, inside the first 45 minutes, United huffed and puffed lacking the ruthlessness that would not have been out-of-place in 2016/17, only to add three more in the final ten minutes of the game. Here's my three snap thoughts on …

Many Premier League clubs are routinely accused of fielding second-string sides in the League Cup, lowering its profile quite a bit. Starting this season, the competition will be sponsored by an energy drink company – Carabao - from Thailand. Could it be that the clubs competing in it are also energised enough to take the competition seriously? At least a few big clubs should consider it seriously, as the Carabao Cup represents their best chance of getting silverware. Two such …

After differing results at the weekend, Liverpool and Burnley will face off in a match both will see as an opportunity to take three points. After a 4-0 stomping of Arsenal, Liverpool went from the stompers to the stompee last week as they were beat 5-0 by Manchester City.  Most of the goals they conceded were after star man Sadio Mane was sent off, but they were already 1-0 down and being at the least marginally outplayed.  After getting spanked …

Arsenal's Europa League Group Preview

The name of Arsenal being associated with a competition like the Europa League has been nothing more than unthinkable in my lifetime. Under Arsene Wenger, the Gunners have been in Europe’s elite competition since he took charge of his first full season nearly 20 years ago.

So here's my thoughts touching on some of the talking points …
