Manchester City face one of their most difficult tests of the season so far as they travel to Anfield to face Liverpool. There has been a lot of talk about the club going through the season unbeaten and becoming only the second team to do so during the Premier League era.

It will be a difficult test for the home side as they have failed to win in any of their last three matches and they need to start showing a clinical edge in the final third.

How Big of a Loss is Philippe Coutinho?

How Big of a Loss is Philippe Coutinho?

It is hard to believe that Philippe Coutinho’s transfer to Barcelona will be topped this transfer window, with the constant speculation surrounding the Brazilian finally put to bed. Coutinho dazzled Anfield and the Premier League for five-years in a Liverpool shirt, but his £150 million move to Barcelona, a move he has called a “dream”, is now complete. The 25-year-old will grace the pitch with the world’s greatest player in the eyes of many, and a former team-§mate whom he …
Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

Comparing Lingard to the Best Attacking Midfielders in the League

The story of Jesse Lingard, a Warrington-born boyhood Manchester United fan going from being the perennial scapegoat that symbolised United's seeming mediocrity to the match-winning hero that the supporters did not quite deserve - is a remarkable one. What the now 24-year old has experienced in the last few weeks is an occupational evolution - paraphrasing Mourinho's words - and for humans that may not have had a Pokemon experience in their lives, that may sound a bit weird. But …

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 …

West Bromwich Albion vs Arsenal Preview | Team News & Key Men

West Bromwich Albion are still looking for their first win since they fired Tony Pulis.  Since firing Pulis they have drawn five matches and lost three, seeing them fall to 19th place in the table.  While they've had some good results with draws away to Liverpool and Tottenham, they have to start winning games more often or else they will likely see themselves relegated from the Premier League.  Arsenal are a tough opponent, but the Baggies have beat them at …
