Xherdan Shaqiri to Liverpool: An Inexpensive Backup Option

Xherdan Shaqiri to Liverpool: An Inexpensive Backup Option

Even as the FIFA World Cup is on the brink of beginning, the transfer rumour mill refuses to stop churning. After being stumped by Nabil Fekir’s failed medical, Liverpool it seems are in the market for another attacking wide midfielder. It has been a few days since it was reported that the Reds are interested in Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri and their failure to close the Fekir deal has made their link with Shaqiri that much stronger. Liverpool’s lack of …

Arsenal v Stoke City Preview | Team News & Key Players

Arsenal obviously want to win every game they play in, but the Premier League games aren’t all that meaningful for the rest of the season. You’d get some pretty decent odds by Coral on Arsenal winning all their games that’s for sure. The Gunners find themselves 13 points outside of the top four with only eight matches left to play.  Realistically, they are not making the Champions League via their league placement and will have to hope to win the Europa League.  …

Bournemouth Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

When Liverpool last visited the Vitality Stadium – a little more than a year ago – they were flying high. They were strong title contenders and were scoring goals for fun. This season, however, as they prepare for a visit to Vitality on Sunday evening, it would be fair to say that the Reds have had multiple disappointments already. Jurgen Klopp has had to recalibrate targets and rotation plans as his team has gathered six fewer points than they did …

Fantasy Premier League Insight – GW12 Post International Break preparation

With the international break (qualifiers) coming to an end and Premier League back at the weekend, let's review GW11 before we look forward to GW12. GW11 kicked off with less glamorous fixtures as Super Sunday had the big boys lining up. Stoke hosted Leicester which turned out to be an entertaining affair; Mahrez continues to look like the #FPL phenom he was 2 seasons ago, scored a goal while Shaqiri (£5.9) bagged a goal and assist wracking up 13 points. Huddersfield …

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 …

Fantasy Premier League Insight - GW10 Spurs Statement

Another blockbuster footballing weekend with a few surprises once again. Spurs explosively exploited Liverpool's defensive frailties, steamrolling the Reds 4-1. Harry Kane highest scoring #FPL points with 16 points (2 goals and an assist). Arsenal piled more pressure on Koeman as Everton went down 2-5 (Koeman has since been sacked); Sanchez, Monreal and Lacazette notable #FPL assets. Huddersfield shocked Man Utd with a 2-1 victory over the title hopefuls; defensive issues rearing its head in that one. Chelsea bounced back …
Manchester United's draw at Stoke is not a sign of things to come

Manchester United's draw at Stoke is not a sign of things to come

Manchester United remain at the top of the league table by the end of matchday four, but only just, thanks to Mark Hughes' Stoke City who, almost predictably, halted United's 100% record accrued over the first three games. Here is my take on how the Red Devils fared at the Britannia, where they have been sub-par in recent years - since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson to be precise, but why their most recent draw could have been a …
Manchester United v FC Basel 1894: Champions League Preview

Manchester United v FC Basel 1894: Champions League Preview

It's time Manchester United fans looked forward to the UEFA Champions League anthem blaring through the PA system at Old Trafford as the Red Devils will begin their European campaign against Switzerland's FC Basel. Manchester United are back in the Champions League under Jose Mourinho, achieving qualification by winning the Europa League last season. Despite what at first glance, looks an easy group stage draw, having avoided the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Juventus from Pot 1, Group …
