Manchester City face one of their most difficult tests of the season so far as they travel to Anfield to face Liverpool. There has been a lot of talk about the club going through the season unbeaten and becoming only the second team to do so during the Premier League era.

Chelsea vs Leicester City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Chelsea will be hoping to return to winning ways as they welcome Leicester City to Stamford Bridge. It will be a difficult test for the home side as they have failed to win in any of their last three matches and they need to start showing a clinical edge in the final third.

Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

The story of Jesse Lingard, a Warrington-born boyhood Manchester United fan going from being the perennial scapegoat that symbolised United's seeming mediocrity to the match-winning hero that the supporters did not quite deserve - is a remarkable one. What the now 24-year old has experienced in the last few weeks is an occupational evolution - paraphrasing Mourinho's words - and for humans that may not have had a Pokemon experience in their lives, that may sound a bit weird.

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 …

Winter games in the Premier League must feel like a series of tests for the teams. One after the other, the tests keep coming, until they suddenly stop.

West Bromwich Albion vs Arsenal Preview | Team News & Key Men

West Bromwich Albion are still looking for their first win since they fired Tony Pulis.  Since firing Pulis they have drawn five matches and lost three, seeing them fall to 19th place in the table.  While they've had some good results with draws away to Liverpool and Tottenham, they have to start winning games more often or else they will likely see themselves relegated from the Premier League.  Arsenal are a tough opponent, but the Baggies have beat them at …
