Time For Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain To Step Up

Time For Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain To Step Up

Five games, five wins and five points clear at the top of the table. It is all going rather swimmingly for Liverpool at the moment. The win against Newcastle was their fourteenth in a row in the top flight and they became the first team ever to do so scoring at least two goals in each of those fixtures.   The stat does hint at attacking riches and that sure is the case. The Reds are blessed with a front …
Teemu Pukki – Norwich’s Talisman

Teemu Pukki – Norwich’s Talisman

Of all the teams that got promoted this season to the English Premier League, Norwich City is looking like the one most likely to stay up. Aston Villa have a good squad but they are yet to produce a result that makes one sit up. Yes, they did beat Everton by 2-0 at Villa Park but given the Toffees’ form, I do not believe that is too significant. Sheffield United have won but only against the currently underwhelming Crystal Palace. …

When it Comes to Shooting Chelsea Need to Think Inside the Box

This weekend there were several interesting games in the Premier League. Liverpool managed to overcome an initial wobble to keep up their 100% start with a win against Newcastle United. Norwich City beat Pep’s Manchester City to hand the Champions their first loss of the season. Arsenal, somehow contrived to lose their way and drew against Watford.

Arsenal "Lose" 2-2 As Pressure Mounts on Emery

Arsenal travelled to Vicarage Road for what was supposed to be some relief in their schedule after playing Liverpool and Tottenham in back to back matches. The trip to the bottom of the table Watford was anything but relieving as the Gunners blew a 2-0 half time to give the Hornets just their second point of the season. Unai Emery's side took a 2-0 lead into halftime despite being outshot eight to three. By the end of the match, they …
Is Everyone Missing A Trick With Marcus Rashford?

Is Everyone Missing A Trick With Marcus Rashford?

Gareth Southgate had a few interesting thoughts on Marcus Rashford after England’s 4-0 defeat of Bulgaria. The manager admitted that he had, like so many others, almost willed the player to develop as a number nine since the then-teenager burst onto the scene in 2016. However, the presence of Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane in those positions for club and country respectively meant that Rashford was shunted onto the flanks in time.  Southgate now believes that the player is most …
The stats behind Tyrone Mings's England call-up

The stats behind Tyrone Mings's England call-up

It was just two weeks ago that Tyrone Mings put in a performance against Everton that promoted him to international honours. The 2-0 win for Mings's Aston Villa side over the Toffees was not just a great example of clinical finishing (Villa only had three shots on target) but also an example of how to defend effectively. This was not the game that propelled Mings to an England call up - Gareth Southgate and his staff will have assessed the …
Lamela reignites Tottenham career with an impressive start to season

Lamela reignites Tottenham career with an impressive start to season

Tottenham made some eye-catching signings during the summer, with Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso joining the club. They strengthened the midfield options at the club and although it was feared Christian Eriksen would depart, the Danish international remains in North London. Due to the quality available to Mauricio Pochettino, it has been a surprise to see Erik Lamela start all four Premier League matches. The Argentine has struggled to hold down a regular starting place, but he is now …
Mohamed Salah – Not “Too Obsessed with Finishing”

Mohamed Salah – Not “Too Obsessed with Finishing”

As information about everything gains in abundance with every passing day, the jobs of journalists and pundits is becoming tougher. They have to sieve through a deluge of information to find the trends and then form their opinions on those trends. This is, of course, the ideal and the longer method of forming opinions and imparting them. The easier one is to form an opinion and then find an example to prove your point. Many a politician, political journalists, sports …
