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 …

Manchester United v Manchester City: Preview, Stats & Key Men

The 175th Manchester derby is upon us and it could just be the most important fixture these two sides have had in the Premier League since December 2012. Manchester United have been phenomenal at home. There's been question marks early on as to whether the Portuguese could ever really imprint his style on Man United but with a 40 game unbeaten streak at home that stretches back to September 2016 (a club record), Mourinho has quite evidently answered it in …

Manchester City: The Rightful Champions-Elect

Eleven Premier League games unbeaten, 38 goals scored in all competitions, eight points clear at the top of the table and unbeaten in their Champions League group. It's not been a bad start for Manchester City in 2017-18. Pep Guardiola was criticised last season after Man City failed to bring home any silverware but after the start his side have made this year, he has received nothing but praise. And rightly so. City are the most exciting team in the …

Fantasy Premier League Insight – GW11 United hit back

GW10 kicked off with the huge clash between Manchester United and Spurs as both teams traded blows and appeared to cancel each other out. It came down to a lack of concentration in the Spurs defense which let United grab the crucial goal (Anthony Martial) and hold on for the win. "Don't speak too much, speak, speak, speak, relax." Mourinho hit back at he's critics (Chelsea away next Jose). Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and City were expected winners. Pep Guardiola once again …

Just How Far Can Guardiola Take Manchester City This Season?

Pep Guardiola's first season with Manchester City didn't quite live up to expectations, but last season's critics have been well and truly silenced. City have been irresistible so far. In defence they look secure, buoyed by the addition of Ederson who looks to be the 'keeper they have been crying out for. Kevin De Bruyne has been in inspired form, with numerous majestic performances in the City midfield and assists that not even people sat in the stands would've seen …
Have Manchester City signed a diamond in Gabriel Jesus?

Have Manchester City signed a diamond in Gabriel Jesus?

Manchester City officially announced the signing of youngster Gabriel Jesus last Saturday but who is the 19-year-old? He cost the Blues a whopping £27 million, which a few years ago may have raised some eyebrows considering he's still a teenager but he shouldn't be intimidated by the price in today's market. Instead, the fee represents a relatively fair price for one of South America's most prized young talents and his 10-minute cameo against Tottenham provided the Etihad with a glimpse …
Are Manchester City Under-Staffed Up Front?

Are Manchester City Under-Staffed Up Front?

When you think Manchester City, you think rich. They are a club with almost unlimited resources and a burning desire to succeed at domestically, as well as in Europe, who also happen to be guided by a superstar manager.  Indeed, when you look at their squad it's clear that they are literally bursting at the seams with talent.  But all that talent is packed primarily in two areas – midfield and defense. If you are new to Premier League football and …
