Ashley Young Rolls Back the Years under Mourinho

Ashley Young Rolls Back the Years under Mourinho

Manchester United won another game of football, on Saturday at Old Trafford by a scoreline which is all too familiar now - after witnessing it for the sixth time in all competitions in eleven competitive games of the season so far. Jose Mourinho's side started the game on the front foot like they have, on a fair few occasions this season, scoring inside three minutes of the first half (Remember the 4th minute opener against Everton? I do too.), thanks …

Jurgen Klopp: What Has He Got Right and Wrong This Season?

When Jurgen Klopp was appointed as the manager in 2015, a keen Liverpool watcher and baiter in Alex Ferguson commented that he was worried about the impact that the German would have on the club. He was convinced that Jurgen would make a difference with his personality, drive and knowledge and was worried that Liverpool could get above Manchester United in terms of where they wanted to be. Two years later, the man everyone associated with Liverpool hailed as a …

Arsenal vs Brighton Preview | Key Players and Team News

After a midweek victory against BATE Borisov in Belarus Arsenal will come back to England to face a different team starting with "B" in Brighton and Hove Albion. Since their 4-0 embarrassment at the hands of Liverpool, Arsenal haven't lost any of their last six matches, winning five of those six matches.  Their 4-2 victory over BATE was quite strange as they played a complete backup team, dominated early, then conceded a few goals after that.  It's not a match …

Newcastle United Vs Liverpool Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

Reunions in Premier League are commonplace. But some reunions are a bit more special than others. This Sunday, we will witness one of these special reunions as Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle host his old club Liverpool. Of the Reds traveling to St. James’ Park, hardly one or two (Flanagan?) played under Rafa at the Merseyside club, but Rafa’s soft corner for Liverpool is well known. His unbeaten record against Liverpool must be an additional reason for him to like them. Given …
Can Martial fill the void of Paul Pogba at Manchester United?

Can Martial fill the void of Paul Pogba at Manchester United?

Manchester United, having made a habit of scoring four goals in a football match, managed to repeat the feat - this time in chilly Russia against a CSKA Moscow side who are usually formidable at home, particularly in the Champions League. It was a result that put a bit of daylight between United and the rest of the teams in that group - almost easing the pressure off of their shoulders, with a relatively straight-forward path now laying ahead of …

Manchester United vs Crystal Palace Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Manchester United have a great opportunity to strengthen their position in the top four as they host bottom-placed Crystal Palace. They have been excellent at the beginning of the new season and will see this as a game that they must win if they are to challenge for the title. The Red Devils haven't lost a league match to the visitors since 1991 and the Eagles have won only one of their last 13 meetings of the two clubs. Last …
Analysing Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli's Attacking Contribution

Analysing Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli's Attacking Contribution

Tottenham have had one of the best attacks in the Premier League during recent seasons and the influence of their two advanced midfielders is central to that. Mauricio Pochettino has favoured a 3-4-2-1 formation, which has allowed both Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli to take their games to the next level. They have each added consistency and regularly contribute in the final third. The reason the team's been so successful is that the two of them provide different qualities to the …
