Is Alexander-Arnold Liverpool’s most important player?

Is Alexander-Arnold Liverpool’s most important player?

It could be argued that Trent Alexander-Arnold is the biggest positive of the Jurgen Klopp reign at Liverpool, as he has come through the academy to secure a starting position. Considering the quality that the German has brought to the club, including Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, that is quite the achievement. The emergence of the right-back has been a major reason for the style of play, as both full-backs are expected to offer width and creativity, allowing the forwards …
Will United Keep Their Nerve With Solskjaer Decision?

Will United Keep Their Nerve With Solskjaer Decision?

The international break has made an untimely appearance for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Manchester United’s limp defeat at the hands of Newcastle on Sunday will allow for two weeks of negative sentiment to fester before the side face Liverpool on resumption of league hostilities. Given that defeat against the Reds last year brought Jose Mourinho’s tenure to an end, speculation is rife that a similar fate awaits the Norwegian on the 20th of October should United suffer a similar fate.  Reports …
Analysing Tottenham's disappointing decline

Analysing Tottenham's disappointing decline

Tottenham will have welcomed the international break, after some sobering results. It was disappointing to get knocked out of the Carabao Cup to Colchester United,  but the supporters will be far more concerned at their last two defeats. The 7-2 mauling at the hands of Bayern Munich as humiliating and shows how far they have fallen since their Champions League heroics last season. The underlying stats of the game hint that the performance wasn't as bad as the scoreline suggests. …
Arsenal The Team To Fear For The Top Two

Arsenal The Team To Fear For The Top Two

It seems like every defeat these days ushers in the latest round of crises at three of the four clubs that have dominated the Premier League era. Manchester City have been relatively new entrants to the party, but having won only two league titles in their history until 2011, they have added four more in quite a hurry and do not look like stopping anytime soon.  Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal however are at differing stages of upheaval and with …
Kante’s fitness could define Chelsea’s season

Kante’s fitness could define Chelsea’s season

N’Golo Kante has been one of the most consistent players across all positions since he arrived in England. Chelsea have been hurt by his absence over the opening weeks, as he has been in and out of the team. There has been a lot spoken about the Blues’ defensive set-up and the Frenchman will go a long way to improving that. The young players have been exciting to watch, but it will be the experienced players that dictate how successful …
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 …
Ronaldo, Messi, van Dijk - who should win the Best Fifa Football Award

Ronaldo, Messi, van Dijk - who should win the Best Fifa Football Award

Choosing the best player from the three world’s most famous and skillful players is certainly not an easy task to tackle. Christiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, and Virgil van Dijk made it into the Best Fifa Football Award shortlist but it’s incredibly hard to determine, who deserves the award most. Let’s take a look at each of them. Christiano Ronaldo Changing the club, and subsequently, the whole league was a challenging experience for Ronaldo. Unlike the other two players, he wasn’t …
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. …
