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

Liverpool are going into Christmas Day in second place and they will be hoping to challenge in 2017. They have a great opportunity to record a high finish and should be more ambitious than simply finishing in the top four. Their opponents on Tuesday are Stoke and they are placed nicely in mid table after a poor start to the season. Mark Hughes has done a great job, but they now need to make the next step and challenge in …

There are some managers in the Premier League who have genuinely good reasons to be quite happy. Eddie Howe and Antonio Conte both certainly have reasons to rejoice this Christmas. This week, Conte expressed his pleasure and was thankful for the pressure that comes with the tag of early season favorites to win the league. Eddie Howe, on the other hand, would surely be happy with his team’s showing in the first half of this season, despite the dampener that …

An unsure Arsenal side will face Tony Pulis' high flying West Bromwich Albion on Boxing Day in what is definitely one of the biggest fixtures that the Gunners will play at this stage of the campaign. Arsenal are back in familiar territory again. Seven days ago, Arsene Wenger's side had put Stoke City to the sword at home, a 3-1 victory after an early wobble to see his side at the top of the table even though it only lasted …

Manchester United v Sunderland Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

On Boxing Day, Manchester United welcome David Moyes back to Old Trafford as his Sunderland side prepare for a match with vital importance for both teams, but for two totally different reasons. Manchester United have hit a good run of form, after their abysmal start to the season.  Their three straight Premier League wins leave them just four points off the top four.  But after the poor start to the season they had, every point is crucial, especially points available at …
Skhodran Mustafi's Absence Hurting Arsenal

Skhodran Mustafi's Absence Hurting Arsenal

Skhodran Mustafi informed Arsenal fans a couple of days back that he will be back in the New Year. Arsenal fans could be happy because of this or dismayed as it means that their team’s defence will remain shaky for a few more weeks to come. It seems to be general consensus that Mustafi has been a great buy for Arsenal, as he has been able to build a solid partnership with Laurent Koscielny and the Gunners have not lost …

The Jesse Lingard Hyperbole

Part of what makes football such an emotional and exhausting sport is opinions. Every fan has loads to say after a result, be it good or bad - some do it via the medium of Twitter or YouTube while a few privileged others get paid to do it in suits on national television. Like every group of supporters, the Manchester United fan-base is a cesspool of opinions that most often come across as very divisive and conflicting - particularly about some of the …
AFC Bournemouth: A Small Club With a Big Heart

AFC Bournemouth: A Small Club With a Big Heart

It would be fair to say that five years ago only a few knew that there were three clubs from the South Coast of England and a club called ‘Bournemouth’ actually existed. Portsmouth’s abrupt decline and journey to the fourth division of English football had coincided with the revival of Southampton, who managed to finish 14th in their return to the Premier League in 2012. At that point in time, this club called Bournemouth had assumed the form of being …

Manchester City Vs Arsenal Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Arsene Wenger’s Gunners were cruising at a fair clip when Everton threw a spanner in their stride during the midweek game at Goodison Park. Wenger attributed that stumble to a physical game from the Toffees. However, he doesn’t have to worry about threading a physical defense when his side travel to Manchester City on Sunday. Pep Guardiola is unlikely to ask his defenders to get stuck in and even if he did, I am not sure if he has the …
