Who will be top of the table on January 1st?

Over the past nine seasons, seven of the sides that have topped the Premier League on New Year’s Day have gone on to win the title that season. The last team to fail to do so was Arsenal in 2015-16 when Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester City pulled off the biggest upset in Premier League history. These recent seasons have shown how important it is to sit top of the pile going into the second half of the season. And it’s Manchester …

Jesse Lingard has been on an upward trajectory over the last two or three seasons and he is now emerging as a key player for club and country.

Destination Madrid for Chelsea Star Hazard?

It’s the transfer story that just won’t go away, much to the frustration of Chelsea, who are keen to tie Eden Hazard to a lucrative new contract with the club. However, Real Madrid seems ready to pounce and money likely won’t be a problem for the Spanish giants, who are ready to make the Belgian star their next ‘Galactico’ signing.

It has been a difficult few years for the Argentine, as he struggled with the pressure that his £30 million price tag brought.
