The decision to sell Dembele could derail Tottenham's season

Mousa Dembele is closing in on a Tottenham exit as he is set for an £11 million move to Chinese Super League club Beijing Guoan. Although he was set to leave on a free at the end of the season, this is a bitter blow for Spurs and questions will be asked if a replacement isn’t brought in. There has been an emphasis on Mauricio Pochettino to trim the squad, but this is a key player departing the club. Since …
Christian Pulisic to Chelsea: A transfer that highlights the club's flaws

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. If he was to move this month, it is much more likely that he would be given substantial game-time at Stamford Bridge. The deal …

When the Skies were Grey: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Debut as Interim Manager

“Football is easy if you have good players", stated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after an emphatic 5-1 win - as Manchester United scored five goals in a Premier League game for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson's final game in charge of the club.

Unai Emery Has Come at the King: He Best Not Miss

Unai Emery left Mesut Ozil out of Arsenal's League Cup squad against Tottenham on Wednesday. Leaving a star player out of a League Cup squad may not sound like a big deal, but when Emery was asked why he left the German out he stated it was a "tactical decision."

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

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 …

It was difficult for the attacker to break through at Manchester United. A number of loan spells were required, but he remained patient and he is now an important member of the first-team squad. Jose Mourinho has faith in the 25-year-old, who has featured in eight of the 12 Premier League matches …
Willian needs to improve to justify Chelsea starting role

Willian needs to improve to justify Chelsea starting role

Chelsea have been one of the best teams in the Premier League this season, but there are still problems for Maurizio Sarri to resolve at Stamford Bridge. Willian has started ten of their league matches. It was expected that the Brazilian would be a key player for the side under the new manager, but his contributions to date have been disappointing. At the age of 30, he is a senior player and needs to be doing more to justify his …
