Is Mark Hughes closing in on the exit door at Stoke City?

Stoke City were the latest victims of Burnley, who rose remarkably to 4th place in the Premier League after Ashley Barnes' 89th minute winner at Turf Moor. It was elation for Sean Dyche's men, but that result sparked more disappointment and frustration amongst the Potters' supporters, a lot of them now calling for Mark Hughes' head. Tony Pulis instilled Premier League stability at Stoke ever since their promotion in the 2007/08 campaign, and Hughes too has succeeded since his appointment …

This weekend's Manchester derby will obviously take the headlines, with many sharing the opinion that should the blue side of the city take the three points on Sunday, the title race could be as good as over. It isn't the only derby this weekend, as Everton travel to Anfield in the Merseyside derby, to face a currently-rampant Liverpool. Those two games, however, are surely going to overshadow three fixtures that are of a paramount importance at the other end of …

Bumpy road for Tottenham Hotspur?

Bumpy road for Tottenham Hotspur?

It is without a doubt that Tottenham’s best moments this season have come outside the Premier League. Mauricio Pochettino has seen his side draw in Madrid, beat Madrid at Wembley, and take six points off Borussia Dortmund. When the group was drawn not many people held out much hope for Spurs, but they have been a delight to watch in the Champions League so far. It can certainly said that their form in Europe has come at a cost though. …

Although it may seem a harsh decision, was it the right one? Pulis had himself admitted over recent weeks that football is indeed a results game and with only one win for this season leaving them one point above the relegation zone, West …

Analysing Chelsea's centre-back options for the 2017/18 campaign

The past weekend marked Chelsea's fifth clean sheet of the season in their 15th game in all competitions, which means they have kept one in 33% of their matches this season. During the last campaign, they were praised for their defensive organisation and consistency under Antonio Conte. The Italian changed to a 3-4-2-1 formation and it immediately reaped rewards, as the Blues became difficult to break down. There was always going to be a stage when the team became less …
