Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

One of the criticisms in a long list that Jose Mourinho has faced throughout his career is his lack of trust in young players. Although in 2017/18 with his continued faith in Marcus Rashford, shrewd management of Anthony Martial and outstanding use of Jesse Lingard (young, in terms of top-flight experience) - the Portuguese is proving them all wrong. And rather quietly so. It has been a weird campaign for the Red Devils, I called this spooky in November and …
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 …

Why Phil Neville is Wrong about Henrikh Mkhitaryan

Before going on to do the objectively right thing and look at why Phil Neville was wrong about the now seemingly exiled attacking midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan at Manchester United, it is vital to evaluate how the 27-year old has fared so far at Old Trafford in 2017/18. Mkhitaryan started the season - arguably the brightest, picking up from where he had left off in the season before scoring vital away goals in the Europa League run, culminating in a night …
How Important is Wilfried Zaha to Crystal Palace?

How Important is Wilfried Zaha to Crystal Palace?

The arrival of Roy Hodgson at Selhurst Park seems to have had an impact on one man in particular. Although the former England manager didn’t ignite a turn in Palace’s fortunes straight away, the Eagles have certainly improved significantly in the past month. It is just one loss in eight Premier League games now for Crystal Palace, and Wilfried Zaha’s performances have been a fundamental part in it. The number-11’s talent has never been questionable, more so the consistency of …
