Analysing Davinson Sanchez's Impressive Start to his Tottenham Career

Analysing Davinson Sanchez's Impressive Start to his Tottenham Career

Tottenham were quiet until the latter stages of the transfer window, but they made it count with some excellent additions that improved their squad. They managed to improve their defence and add more depth to the squad, which was crucial if they were to challenge for major trophies. Davinson Sanchez arrived with huge potential after an excellent debut campaign in European football at Ajax. There are few better young defenders in football and he will benefit hugely from the coaching of Mauricio …
Flurry of Late Goals See Manchester United Joint Top of the League

Flurry of Late Goals See Manchester United Joint Top of the League

Another 4-0 win for Manchester United, this time coming against an Everton side that had lost their last three games in a row in all competitions. After an early goal from Antonio Valencia, only their fourth out of 16 in total, inside the first 45 minutes, United huffed and puffed lacking the ruthlessness that would not have been out-of-place in 2016/17, only to add three more in the final ten minutes of the game. Here's my three snap thoughts on …
Sadio Mané's Sending off Changed the Match, But for the Right Reasons

Sadio Mané's Sending off Changed the Match, But for the Right Reasons

Seven Premier League matches were played on Saturday, and 24 goals were scored, but the major talking point at the end of the day was the red card handed to Premier League player of the month and Liverpool forward Sadio Mané for a high-footed, studs up lunge on Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson. While Mané’s challenge was, as he reaffirmed on his Instagram page after the match, completely unintentional, and Ederson didn’t suffer any major injuries, the City goalkeeper remained on …

Leicester City vs Chelsea Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

The last two Premier League champions will meet at the KP Stadium on Saturday as Leicester City host Chelsea. The former are unlikely to be competing at the top of the division during this campaign, but the current champions will have ambitions to retain their title. On deadline day, they signed Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta. The former was signed from this weekend's opponents and there is a possibility that he can reform his midfield partnership with Ngolo Kante. This …
Nemaja Matić is the Catalyst That Will Unleash Paul Pogba

Nemaja Matić is the Catalyst That Will Unleash Paul Pogba

When I wrote about Paul Pogba being a £89 million mistake last season, my article concluded with the problems caused by Mourinho’s tactics and mentality that he adopted last season. Mourinho’s defensive approach meant that Manchester United’s most expensive player had to be perform ball-winning midfielder’s duties, even when he was deployed in the hole behind Ibrahimovic. I reached these conclusions by comparing Pogba’s stats for United last season and for Juventus in the previous season. Last season, Mourinho played …

Post-Match Hangover: Manchester United Rout Swansea in Style

Four goals scored, none conceded and 3 more points. Again. It's been as good a start for Manchester United as they have had in not just one year, or five or even fifty - this is the first time the Red Devils have scored eight Premier League/top flight goals or more in the first two games in about 110 years. So it's rather safe to assume that there is something special brewing within this side. Mourinho would call it confidence. …

AFC Bournemouth Season Preview: Cherries Look for Top Half Finish

If there’s anything that the Premier League brings apart from a whole new package of drama, delight and despair, then it is the ability to dispel the gloom that football fans are surrounded with during the three month long off-season period. And with the new season just days away from kick-off, it’s time we take a look at what’s coming. Much like any other season, the focus will not and must not be on the big six or the ones …
