Hueng-Min Son is the answer

Hueng-Min Son is the answer

A month ago, I wrote a piece assessing Hueng-min Son's failure to cement a starting role at Tottenham this season. Despite emphasising the Korean's obvious qualities, I argued that his impact, thus far, had been somewhat inconsistent. Since then, Spurs have suffered a dip in form, briefly slumping to seventh in the league, before a comprehensive win against Stoke stopped the bleeding. Whilst some players have misfired during a tough period for the club, Sonny has stepped-up and proved his worth. In Spurs' last six games …
Why Michy Batshuayi needs to push for a January move away from Chelsea

Why Michy Batshuayi needs to push for a January move away from Chelsea

Michy Batshuayi signed for Chelsea with a growing reputation, but he hasn’t been given the opportunities that many expected him to have. The latest snub came on Tuesday as he didn’t start, despite the absence of Alvaro Morata. Antonio Conte opted for Eden Hazard as a lone striker and his Belgian team-mate had to make do with a cameo from the bench. When he signed from Marseille, he was young and could spend some time operating in a lesser role. …
Why every manager must be scared of taking the Everton job

Why every manager must be scared of taking the Everton job

There seemed to be a real sense of optimism around Everton when the club from Merseyside blew off about £140 million on roping in a host of quality players from other fellow clubs from the country and those from abroad. The signings didn’t just satisfy the need for quality reinforcements but also raised expectations among the Toffees faithful, who expected their club to give the mighty top six a run for their money. You can’t blame the fans, can you? …
What is Going Wrong for Crystal Palace?

What is Going Wrong for Crystal Palace?

Currently sitting in 20th place, both winless, goalless, and pointless, is Crystal Palace. This position would not have been anticipated by most Palace fans and football pundits, after a decent summer transfer window bringing in the permanent transfer of Mamadou Sakho, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and Jairo Riedewald. However, despite these additions, the Eagles have looked extremely poor under both Frank de Boer and new manager Roy Hodgson, collecting a series of unwanted records and not managing to score a …
The Premier League is A Tough Test for Most Non-English Players

The Premier League is A Tough Test for Most Non-English Players

“Can Messi do it on a rainy, windy Tuesday night at Stoke?”. Almost every Premier League fan must have asked or heard  this rhetorical question at least once in the last few years. While this particular version of the question alludes to the physical game the Potters were known for under Tony Pulis and the English weather, what the fans are asking is – would Messi be as successful in the Premier League as he is in La Liga? There …
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 …
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 …

Arsenal v Aston Villa Preview | Team New, Stats & Key Men

On May 15th, Aston Villa travel to the Emirates Stadium for their last Premier League match for at least a year.  Villa have already been relegated from the Premier League for the first time in their history.  With only three wins and 17 points from their first 37 games, Villa are in serious danger of being the first team not to reach 20 points since Portsmouth in 2009/2010. In terms of league position, Arsenal are playing for whether they'll finish …
