London PL clubs in Europe: Statistical Outlook

This season, every Premier League club involved in European group stage action has successfully avoided a humiliatingly early exit. The difficulties associated with battling on two fronts are already well-documented in Premier League lore, as reinforced by the fact that the Champions League trophy has been absent from English shores since 2013.

Christian Pulisic to Chelsea: A transfer that highlights the club's flaws

Chelsea made the first major move of the January transfer window, as they announced the arrival of Borussia Dortmund attacker Christian Pulisic. However, the USA international will remain at the Bundesliga team for the rest of the current campaign. This clause seems odd on the face of it, as he has struggled for minutes this season.
