Newcastle United Vs Liverpool Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

Reunions in Premier League are commonplace. But some reunions are a bit more special than others. This Sunday, we will witness one of these special reunions as Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle host his old club Liverpool. Of the Reds traveling to St. James’ Park, hardly one or two (Flanagan?) played under Rafa at the Merseyside club, but Rafa’s soft corner for Liverpool is well known. His unbeaten record against Liverpool must be an additional reason for him to like them. Given …
Could Shelvey Unlock Newcastle's Potential?

Could Shelvey Unlock Newcastle's Potential?

Whisper it quietly, but Newcastle looked like a really good side against West Ham on Saturday. Eyebrows were raised when they opted to pay £12m for Jonjo Shelvey, and as a Newcastle fan, I was uncertain about the transfer, but after seeing his influence on Saturday, it is easy to see why the club wanted him.

Jonjo Shelvey: From Liverpool Reject to the England Squad

When Jonjo Shelvey signed for Liverpool in 2010 he was considered to be one of the bright young midfield talents in the English game. He put pen to paper at Anfield no doubt hoping to learn from one of the games greats, Steven Gerrard, and eventually be a key feature in Liverpool’s midfield.

Tottenham vs Swansea City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

What a bad week it's been for Tottenham. Knocked out of the Europa League by Fiorentina, defeated in the final of the League Cup by Chelsea and hurt in their quest for the top four by victories for Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal - you'd be forgiven for thinking these Spurs lads had a somewhat damaged psyche heading into this clash. Swansea should be feeling altogether better than their London counterparts too. The Swans have recorded back to back wins …
