Where do Manchester City Still Need to Strengthen?

Where do Manchester City Still Need to Strengthen?

When Manchester City defeated Stoke to win the FA Cup in 2011, it signalled the end of a 35 year period without a major trophy. City followed up their cup success by winning the Premier League trophy in 2012, and many thought that a period of domestic dominance would follow. An onslaught on the Champions League was surely only a matter of time. It hasn't exactly worked out like that since. City did win a second Premier League title last …
Walker vs Clyne: Who is England's strongest right-back?

Walker vs Clyne: Who is England's strongest right-back?

After four wins from their opening four matches, it would take a catastrophe of, well, English proportions for Roy Hodgson's men to miss out on Euro 2016. A relatively straight forward match against Lithuania on Friday should make it five from five. Hodgson now has the luxury of building a squad for the tournament without jeapordising the qualifying campaign itself. Apart from Joe Hart and Wayne Rooney - who should be definite starters, barring injury or an inexplicable loss of …
Juan Mata: Why he deserves a place in United's starting eleven

Juan Mata: Why he deserves a place in United's starting eleven

There has been much criticism directed the way of Manchester United's diminutive midfielder Juan Mata since his £37.1 million move from Stamford Bridge to Old Trafford in January 2014. Many believed at the start of the 2014/15 season, despite his impressive on-field relationship with Ander Herrera exhibited during pre-season, that Mata would be the 'fall guy' in the wake of United's epic splurge into the transfer market. It was often pointed out that Mata was yet to influence any of …

Southampton have a huge opportunity at St Mary's on Saturday to make up some ground in the fight for fourth place. Manchester United (56 points) face Liverpool (54 points) and a win for the Saints against Burnley could be a huge help in stringing together a good run, after winning just one of their previous five league matches, between now and the end of the season. Burnley really need to pick up some wins in their remaining nine matches if …

Liverpool travel to the Liberty Stadium on Monday night with a top four position firmly in their sights. The Reds are currently two points behind bitter rivals Manchester United, who currently occupy fourth place position in the Premier League.

QPR vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Tottenham travel to Loftus Road for the only Premier League game this weekend, with three points crucial for both teams. QPR are fighting for their lives after suffering defeat to Tottenham's North London rivals Arsenal on Wednesday evening. Chris Ramsey's men have lost five of their last six matches in the Premier League. They are currently in 18th position, but a win would see them leapfrog Aston Villa on goal difference. Tottenham on the other hand are aiming for one …

West Ham vs Chelsea Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

After Saturday's humbling at home to Crystal Palace, West Ham fans won't be looking forward to their next London derby, this time against title chasers Chelsea. The Hammers are in danger of slipping into mid-table mediocrity after a promising start to the season, and have picked up just three points from a possible fifteen in their last five matches. Chelsea on the other hand will approach the match full of confidence after their League Cup win over Spurs on Sunday. …
