At the age of 23, Romelu Lukaku is reaching a crucial stage of his career, as he attempts to become one of the best strikers in Europe. He was seen as one of the best prospects when he joined Chelsea in 2011, but he couldn't break into the first team at Stamford Bridge.

Why Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Should be Given a Chance in Central Midfield

Why Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Should be Given a Chance in Central Midfield

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was one of the few players to come out of Wednesday's 5-1 defeat against Bayern Munich with any credit as he worked tirelessly for his team and was the only Arsenal player to go right over to applaud the supporters. Although that is the least that could be expected, the rest of the Arsenal players didn't show it. He was played on the right wing, which has been his main position since breaking into professional football, but his …
Should Ozil be Dropped by Arsene Wenger?

Should Ozil be Dropped by Arsene Wenger?

Another season, same old Arsenal has become a cliche.  Out of the title race and all but out of the Champions League in the R-16 stage for the seventh year running. The standout performer for Arsenal this season has been Alexis Sanchez without a shadow of a doubt and by some distance. There has also been growing concerns about their other talisman, Mesut Ozil.

Liverpool Drifting But Not Due to FSG or Klopp

After his side dropped points again to a relegation zone team on Saturday, Jurgen Klopp admitted that the fans were justified in their anger and that the team deserved all the criticism they have received over the last few weeks, and especially after the defeat at the KCom Stadium.

Why Arsene Wenger has Himself to Blame for Arsenal's Mentality Problems

Why Arsene Wenger has Himself to Blame for Arsenal's Mentality Problems

While nothing seemed to be going right for Arsenal at Stamford Bridge, Arsene Wenger gazed at his ailing players, expressionless and giving the impression that he had resigned to the fact that the Gunners will end up enduring another embarrassment.

Mkhitaryan's Growing Influence and Mourinho's Questionable Stance on Martial

Manchester United beat Leicester City for the third time this season - an emphatic and largely comfortable stroll-in-the-park 0-3 victory at the King Power Stadium after goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata. United started with a similar line-up to the one that demolished the champions at Old Trafford back in September, with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Marcos Rojo this time in place of Jesse Lingard and Daley Blind. The visitors, after a slow start - for the first …
