The Blues went from comprehensively winning the league to missing out on Champions League football …

Lukaku steps up against former club as United beat Chelsea

For only the second time in the last 15 occasions in all competitions, On Sunday, Manchester United emerged victorious against the Blues of West London. Both of those wins have come under the Portuguese and while United put in arguably their best display of 2016/17 against Chelsea last season, the latest win has come under much more difficult circumstances. Chelsea had the better start - bringing in all the confidence they had gained from a fighting 1-1 against Barcelona in …
Olivier Giroud - Should he start for Chelsea ahead of Alvaro Morata?

Olivier Giroud - Should he start for Chelsea ahead of Alvaro Morata?

Olivier Giroud was a surprise signing for Chelsea during the January transfer window. It is rare for a player to go from Arsenal to Stamford Bridge, but the early indications are that it could be a good move for the player. The French international was hardly playing for the Gunners as he lost his place to compatriot Alexandre Lacazette. A move across London may not have appeared to be the best career move, but the current Premier League champions play …

Has Alvaro Morata been an upgrade on Diego Costa at Chelsea?

Has Alvaro Morata been an upgrade on Diego Costa at Chelsea?

Alvaro Morata was the villain of the piece as Chelsea failed to beat Arsenal on Wednesday night. The current champions had the better chances and should have put the game beyond doubt before Hector Bellerin popped up with an incredible equaliser. The Gunners showed good heart to avoid defeat, but they shouldn't have been given the opportunity to get back into the match. The visitors' striker has scored goals this season and appeared to be a decent addition, but yesterday's …

Fantasy Premier League Insight – GW12 Post International Break preparation

With the international break (qualifiers) coming to an end and Premier League back at the weekend, let's review GW11 before we look forward to GW12. GW11 kicked off with less glamorous fixtures as Super Sunday had the big boys lining up. Stoke hosted Leicester which turned out to be an entertaining affair; Mahrez continues to look like the #FPL phenom he was 2 seasons ago, scored a goal while Shaqiri (£5.9) bagged a goal and assist wracking up 13 points. Huddersfield …
Duel of the Fates: Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku

Duel of the Fates: Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku

Football feeds off narratives. And one of the main reasons why we love football does not actually have anything to with the sport itself. It's always the stories they build and give life to. The sport is better for them and naturally thrive on the tension that builds along. One such story in the Premier League this season - setting the tone since the transfer window, a tale that connects two football clubs and managers at loggerheads, one that took …
