As far as their EPL position is concerned, the Red Devils are 13 points behind league-leaders Chelsea. Almost feeling like …
Is Phil Jones Mourinho's Most Ideal Defender at Manchester United?

Is Phil Jones Mourinho's Most Ideal Defender at Manchester United?

Phil Jones usually comes across as an interesting footballer and an incredibly boring human being. Interesting footballer because there are not many players at Manchester United that divide opinion as much as this 24-year old center-half does, purely in footballing terms. Boring human being because nobody knows what he is up to in his spare time when he is not injured, and such a time is admittedly rare. When Jose Mourinho took over, it was almost inevitable that he was going to …

Tottenham's Missing Link: Kane or Alderweireld?

Tottenham have been plagued with a number of major injuries this season and Harry Kane and Toby Alderweireld were perhaps the two most important players to suffer.

Spurs currently sit in 5th position in the Premier League, behind rivals Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool. In their last seven games they have failed to pick up a victory, though their 1-1 draw against …

Taking Stock of Defence in Premier League - Part 1: Top Defences
