Liverpool: Why Emre Can Is the future, Not Henderson

Liverpool: Why Emre Can Is the future, Not Henderson

One of the biggest mistakes that Klopp made was to allow Jordan Henderson to keep the armband when he took over. Maybe he didn't want to change too much, too soon. But in his second season, Hendo still has it. Apart from him not bossing games or being a natural midfield general ( shouting at the ref doesn't count as commanding), it basically made him "undroppable" and in the process stunted the development of Emre Can in central midfield, because unfortunately for the …

Seven Game-Changers Who Could Make A Difference In The Final Stretch - Part 1

The Premier League is drawing to a close - and although this season has, much to the dismay of the neutrals, been less about the drama and uncertainty at the very top end of the table unlike last campaign, it has had its clutch moments of its own as the ensemble of superstar managers have all made a mark - some indelible, while others not so much, at various stages in the last seven months. As the final international break …

Why Kante is Already the Signing of the Season

Why Kante is Already the Signing of the Season

The Premier League season is by no means over but already Chelsea seem to have secured the league title with over 10 games to go. They are cruising at the top with a 10-point lead over Tottenham in second place and the rest of the top four are battling it out to secure a place in the Champions League. Manchester United have several cup competitions to attend to, while Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City have all dropped points during key …
N'Golo Kante - Difference Maker

N'Golo Kante - Difference Maker

It's fair to say that the first half of last season was a blip for Chelsea, albeit a serious one that cost Jose Mourinho his job. Going from Premier League champions to strugglers in a matter of months was never about the standard of the squad; something evident after Guus Hiddink took over temporary charge and the Blues form improved, with them eventually finishing tenth in the Premier League. As the season drew to a close, Diego Costa and Eden …

The Emergence Of Victor Moses Under Conte's Revamped Chelsea

Antonio Conte's Chelsea side is forging ahead, currently riding a five-match win streak and well within striking distance for the top spot in the Premiership. The usual lot at Stamford Bridge has received the bulk of the praise for the resurgence, but Nigerian Victor Moses has slipped through the cracks as one of Conte's most improved -- and important -- players during his first spell in west London. Conte was announced as the new manager of Chelsea in April 2016. Supporters …
How the change in formation can bring the best out of David Luiz

How the change in formation can bring the best out of David Luiz

Chelsea were sublime on Saturday as doubts about Antonio Conte's future were cast aside. The Italian looks to have found his strongest side at the club after the move to a 3-4-3 formation. It always looked to be an intelligent decision to appoint the Italian due to his tactical flexibility and his decision to utilise a formation that isn't often used in the Premier League. He isn't afraid to innovate and that provides an element that has been missing at …
Leicester City request restart to EPL Season

Leicester City request restart to EPL Season

Leicester City have requested that the current EPL season be restarted. Claudio Ranieri cited external factors as the main reason for a vastly indifferent start to this season. Ranieri : “Jamie Vardy’s chewing tobacco is stuck in a port somewhere in Spain, and our good luck Pizza cutter has been missing since THAT party last season.” He went on further saying that his players initially thought that N'golo Kanté had taken it with him to Chelsea but they aren’t winning either …
