Manchester United v Hull City Preview: EFL Cup Semi-Final

Manchester United will host Hull City in the first of two legs, at home, to book a place in the League Cup final at Wembley, where the Red Devils have been quite successful in 2016 winning the FA Cup and the Community Shield. United are on a great run, their best winning streak (eight on the spin) since they were crowned champions and there is a real upturn in confidence and belief. They go into this game on the back …

PL Defences Part 2: Koscielny Tops the Best Defender Analysis

In Part 1, we looked at the top defences in the Premier League. We saw that Squawka rates Arsenal as the best currently, followed by Chelsea, Burnley, Manchester United and Spurs. All these teams excel in different areas of defence. Some play high and press well, some intercept well, others block and clear well. But defences are made up of individuals.

Attacking quality or defensive disaster in the Premier League?

Attacking quality or defensive disaster in the Premier League?

The 2016-17 season is in full flow and already it's thrown up some astonishing results. Arsenal's 3-0 victory against Chelsea last weekend was unpredictable, whilst Liverpool's impressive start to the campaign continued with an emphatic 5-1 hammering of Hull City. Even Manchester United fans wouldn't have expected to beat the defending champions 4-1 and it was the eleventh time this season a Premier League team scored four or more goals past an opponent. The opening weekend alone saw 28 goals …

Hull City vs Arsenal Preview | Team News, Key Men & Stats

Hull City have enjoyed a rather pleasant return to the English top flight, having won 2 games and drawn 1 out of the 4 they have played so far and host Arsenal in their next league game. Though they come into the game on the back of a draw against Burnley, they have played some good football and will prove to be difficult opposition at home. The Gunners on the other hand come into the game after a gruelling fixture …

Scout Report: Sam Clucas

Right before their hard fought loss at home to Manchester United following Marcus Rashford's last ditch winner, Hull City were being labelled as a possible 'new Leicester City'. Two consecutive wins, despite not having a majority of their players, Hull City ousted the side they were being compared to - Claudio Ranieri's Leicester and Francesco Guidolin's Swansea. Six points on the board and being right behind the two Manchester giants early in the season can well be termed as a …

Hull City vs Manchester United Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

On August 27th, Manchester United travel to the KC Stadium to take on Hull City. Surprisingly enough, this is a battle between two teams that are coming off back to back wins in their first two matches. Hull were odds on favourites to not just get relegated this season, but finish last at the start of the season.  Two games hardly means they won't get relegated or finish last, but Hull have six points from their first two games, and …
Decoding What Went Wrong For The Foxes On Opening Day

Decoding What Went Wrong For The Foxes On Opening Day

It is the first time that the defending champions have lost on the very first day of the Premier League, and it also looks like Leicester City’s dream fairytale run is over. They defied all the odds last season and won the league, but this time around, it looks like all the odds are against them. Their team looked unmotivated, nervous and even their bests such as Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez, Drinkwater, etc., all seemed to be struggling to establish …
