Southampton Vs Hull City Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

Southampton welcome Hull to St Mary’s this weekend, as one of the 3pm kickoffs on Saturday. The Saints have been one of the surprise packages of the season, and would have in fact been 2nd after 10 games had they won away at Stoke last week (all other results remaining the same). As new members to the Premier League, Hull City will also be happy with their league position at this stage in the season. Southampton come into this match boasting …
Azpilicueta v Ivanovic: Who Should Start for Chelsea? | Stats Compared

Azpilicueta v Ivanovic: Who Should Start for Chelsea? | Stats Compared

Cesar “we’ll just call you Dave” Azpilicueta came to Chelsea in the summer transfer window of 2012 as a rather unknown entity. Having just released Bosingwa, and with Paulo Ferreira seemingly present for emergencies only, it seemed as if Ivanovic would be the number one Chelsea right-back at that time; however, Azpilicueta made more of an impact than expected. In fact he was one of the revelations of the season not just at Chelsea but in the Premier League and …

Expelling the Clichés Within the Laws of Football

Expelling the Clichés Within the Laws of Football

As Marouane Chamakh was brought to the ground 45 yards away from goal, meters from the edge of the pitch and with little evidence that he would be able to produce any meaningful goal attempt, Michael Owen proclaimed from the commentators box that it was a certain red card because Arteta was the “last man”. Whether it was for that reason or another, the referee agreed that a red card was warranted and Arteta was sent from the pitch leaving …

Aston Villa Vs Everton Preview | Stats, Team News & Key men

The seventh-placed Toffees travel to Aston Villa on Sunday for one of only four 3pm kick-offs, and will be looking to assert themselves even further as European football contenders. Aston Villa, on the other hand, sit in 13th position, with a clear points divide between the top third and the bottom third. Indeed, only one point separates 8th and 14th in the league creating a closely fought mid-table scrap in which Manchester United are also involved. It may still be early in the …
Walcott Return Set Back Two Weeks - But Do Arsenal Actually Miss Him?

Walcott Return Set Back Two Weeks - But Do Arsenal Actually Miss Him?

Arsene Wenger confirmed on Monday that Walcott has suffered a setback in his return from injury and will be out for yet another two weeks. This kind of luck, or lack of it, is becoming quite typical for the gunners whenever a player seems like he may be on the brink of return. However, in the current set of circumstances it’s not quite as disastrous as it may usually have been. Even with Podolski, Chamberlain and Diaby all serving long …
