Tottenham's Unsung Defensive Heroes

Tottenham's Unsung Defensive Heroes

Tottenham’s defensive record is one of the best in the league this season and the centre-back pairing of Alderweireld and Vertonghen are the unsung heroes of Pochettino’s side. Their latest victory against Sunderland displayed the in-form qualities of their star men, Harry Kane and Cristian Eriksen, but their defence has been just as important this season. Spurs are currently the only side in the Premier League to have conceded less than 20 goals in 2015-16 and their goal difference is …

Signing a Cech for Success and Mignolet's Costly Overdraft

Being a goalkeeper is hard. When you concede goals you're criticised and when you keep clean sheets, it’s usually the centre-backs who earn all the praise.

For over ten years at the Blues, he was regarded as one of the world’s best and he …

Famous Comebacks: There's Hope For the Injured!

Daniel Sturridge’s career could be coming to an end at Liverpool as his lengthy injury spell seems never ending.

Chelsea's Ruthlessness - Enough to Put Off Other Managers?

Chelsea have become a force in the Premier League and in Europe since the arrival of Roman Abramovich at Stamford Bridge. The owner is ruthless, passionate and direct. He knows what he wants and won't let anything thwart him. Abramovich’s methods have been criticised though due to the regularity of sacking his managers. Chelsea seem to have gone through most of Europe’s elite and now there may be none left. Jose Mourinho, Rafael Benitez, Roberto Di Matteo, Andre Villas Boas …

The latest could see Didier Drogba return to Chelsea to work alongside interim manager Guus Hiddink. He'd follow in the footsteps of Ryan Giggs at Manchester United, who's enjoying his second season as part of the coaching and management team. However, it's not always been a succesful transition. Here's some of the best and worst stories of players …
Manchester City: the Best Club for Pep Guardiola

Manchester City: the Best Club for Pep Guardiola

The current Bayern Munich manager has become England’s most wanted after announcing the termination of his time with the German outfit at the end of the season. The Premier League’s biggest clubs are all chasing him in an attempt to grab the world’s number one boss. However, for a race that should be highly contested, there's only really one team in it and that's Manchester City. Possibly the most attractive factor in City’s attempt to claim Pep Guardiola’s managerial genius, …
