Manchester United Vs Southampton Preview: Key Player Stats | Team News

Manchester United Vs Southampton Preview: Key Player Stats | Team News

Manchester United will welcome Southampton, the surprise package of the season so far, to Old Trafford for a 3:00pm kick-off this Saturday. I refer to Southampton as a surprise package, but with a squad like the one they have, perhaps more people should have predicted the Saints to do so well. No matter what esteem you held Southampton in before the start of the season, you would never have expected them to be 4 points clear of Manchester United after 7 …

Should Barkley and Townsend Start for England? Stats vs Lampard, Gerrard, Carrick & Milner

Should Barkley and Townsend Start for England? Stats vs Lampard, Gerrard, Carrick & Milner

What should Roy go with against Montenegro and Poland: youth or experience? These aren’t friendlies, or weaker opposition in which certain players can be integrated. These are two dangerous teams, neither of whom we have beaten in this group, and the stage on which England meet them can more or less be described as knockout competition. So this isn’t the time for experimentation, this is the time to pick the best team possible. So when I talk about Barkley and …

Loic Remy: Compared to top strikers | Benteke, Sturridge & Lukaku

Newcastle’s efforts to suitably replace Demba Ba since his departure to Chelsea in the January transfer window of 2013 finally seem to be showing results. Loic Remy was meant to be the solution 10 months ago, and indeed it seemed at one point as if the deal was all wrapped up for Newcastle. However it was not to be as QPR hijacked the deal leading the Frenchman to move to Loftus Road from Marseilles for just over £12 million. [sws_blockquote …

The Mourinho Philosophy | How Mata Is Adapting His Game To Suit It

The Mourinho Philosophy | How Mata Is Adapting His Game To Suit It

Juan Mata has been out of luck under Jose Mourinho and for a long time nobody understood why. The only Premier League game that he has started to date was against Aston Villa at home, and that appearance was limited to 65 minutes. Up until the victory over Fulham pundits and reporters offered, for the most part, uneducated guesses on why Mata wasn’t starting. Some suggestions were feasible, like the idea that Mourinho didn’t rate Mata. However other allegations, like …
