The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Matchweek 9

The international break swept through the football calendar like a tornado and in it's path left a trail of destruction. Between injuries and positive Covid-19 tests there was a massive group of players who were perfectly healthy the last time their clubs saw them who returned unable to play in at least one game, and in some cases unable to play again this season. What the logic was in forcing players to play so many games in a short space …

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of Matchweek 8

We've reached the second international break of the season, and we can now pause and reflect on what we've seen so far in the 20/21 Premier League season. It's all been a bit mental. It's hard to decide whether Southampton being fourth or Sheffield United and Burnley being the bottom two is more surprising. It's impossibly to figure out what was the most surprising result of the season thus far. Everyone has at least one loss, zero teams have a …

Chelsea face a challenging trip to face an improving Burnley team, just days after their Champions League victory against Krasnodar. The time that the Blues have to prepare for the fixture could prove an issue for them, especially when the long haul flights are factored in.

How Kai Havertz has settled at Chelsea

A lot of excitement built over the summer due to the arrival of Kai Havertz at Chelsea. It was regarded as the biggest coup of the transfer window, as the Blues signed one of the most talented young players in Europe.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Matchweek 6

Another week, another big VAR controversy involving Liverpool, another Everton red card and lots more talking points to boot. This Premier League season is easily the most unpredictable in recent years and while this weekend didn't produce any outlandish results, such as the league Champions getting beaten 7-2, Manchester City losing 5-1 or their neighbours United shipping 6 at home, it still through up some surprises. The only two teams in the league who went into the weekend unbeaten both …

Manchester United vs Chelsea Match Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

This weekend will be huge for the managers of both sides, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer faces off against Frank Lampard at Old Trafford. This was the opening fixture of the 2019/20 campaign and Manchester United were convincing 4-0 winners. There were doubts about the two men's ability to take their respective clubs forward and those remain in some form.
