How has Azpilicueta adapted since the change to 3-4-3?

How has Azpilicueta adapted since the change to 3-4-3?

Chelsea have consolidated their position at the top of the league after making it eleven successive victories in the Premier League. After back-to-back defeats earlier in the season against Liverpool and Arsenal, Antonio Conte decided that the 4-2-3-1 formation wasn't working out. The Italian opted to move to a 3-4-3 system that he has become known for during his coaching career. There have always been doubts in England about formations containing three at the back and that caused some to …

Benteke: The Dream Ticket for Palace

Benteke: The Dream Ticket for Palace

Crystal Palace have voiced their interest in Liverpool forward Christian Benteke and the out-of-favour striker could be just the solution to their problems in attack. The Premier League side will need all the firepower they can muster in order to compete in the top flight and Benteke has proven he can cause defenders problems. At Aston Villa he was one of the best strikers in the league and Palace will be hoping he can deliver similar performances for them. They're …
Has Vardy done Arsenal a favour?

Has Vardy done Arsenal a favour?

I’ll admit, when I was first told of Arsenal’s bid for Jamie Vardy, I laughed out loud, presuming it to be another one of those ludicrous fantasy transfer stories that populate the tabloid press. You know the ones: “Lionel Messi could sign for Manchester United” or “Liverpool ready to bid for Robert Lewandowski”. That was how ludicrous I envisaged a link between Arsenal and Jamie Vardy, it just didn’t seem right. Imagine my surprise when it transpired that Arsene Wenger …
2015-16 Premier League Season Review: Part Two

2015-16 Premier League Season Review: Part Two

Read Part One here... European success On the whole, it’s been disappointing for English clubs competing in Europe in the last five years but this year brought a little bit more success. Last season, not a single English club made it through to the quarter finals of the Champions League – although Sergio Aguero finished 9th in the top goal scorers list for the competition with 6 goals. In 2013-14, Manchester United were knocked out by Bayern Munich in the …

Liverpool vs Stoke City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

On April 10th, Liverpool will welcome Stoke City to Anfield as the two sides both fight to move up in the European spots.  Liverpool sit nine points back of fourth place at the moment, but have at least one game in hand on everyone above them, two on Stoke and Southampton.  Even with the extra opportunities to pick up points, a loss, and possibly even a draw, would end their slim chances at Champions League football next season.  Stoke are …

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool: Stagnation Amidst Success

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool: Stagnation Amidst Success

Jürgen Klopp has transformed a number of players since his arrival in Merseyside but not every player in the squad has benefited from the German’s input. Whilst Liverpool have produced some exhilarating performances, reached a cup final and lined up a Europa League quarter-final clash against Borussia Dortmund (knocking Manchester United out in the process,) it’s not all perfect under Jürgen Klopp. Whilst there have been brilliant improvements under the German boss, there’s also been some players whose Liverpool careers …
