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.

The early success of James emphasises Manchester United's decline

The early success of James emphasises Manchester United's decline

Daniel James has been a rare bright spot for Manchester United at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign. The Welsh international was a surprise addition for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side over the summer, for a fee of £15 million. That is looking like a potential bargain based on his first few performances in red, as he has caused problems for opposition defenders and he looks to be mature enough for the Premier League. The 21-year-old has had an incredible rise …
Arsenal need to start Lacazette against Tottenham

Arsenal need to start Lacazette against Tottenham

Arsenal were disappointing in defeat against Liverpool last weekend. There was a clear plan from Unai Emery, as he looked to counter with pace and exploit the wide spaces left vacant by the advancing Reds' full-backs. It wasn't a bad idea. In fact, if Nicolas Pepe had scored his one-on-one at 0-0, the Gunners may have gone on to get something from the game. However, the new signing was denied by Adrian and a predictable home win came to pass. …

Spurs’ Eriksen Dilemma Could Derail Campaign

Mauricio Pochettino has made his displeasure around England’s closed transfer window known yet again, and with good reason. Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are all into the final year of their contracts, leaving Spurs vulnerable to bids in the European transfer market, the window for which closes only on the second of September. Given the lack of defensive cover, the club may still hang onto the two players on the wrong side of thirty and let them run …

Liverpool need to get back to their defensive best against Arsenal

Liverpool need to get back to their defensive best against Arsenal

Liverpool came close to winning the Premier League last season and a huge reason for that was their defensive quality. The Reds managed to keep 21 clean sheets from 38 matches over the course of the campaign. Virgil van Dijk went on to win the PFA Player of the Year award, with his performances standing out in the heart of the back four at Anfield. It was expected that they would go on to have a similar record this season, …

Dani Ceballos Dazzles in Full Debut

Dani Ceballos started his first match for Arsenal on Saturday and lit up Emirates Stadium in the Gunners' 2-1 victory. The Spaniard lifted Unai Emery's side through a difficult match, getting Arsenal back to back Premier League wins to start a season for the first time since 2009/2010. Ceballos arrived in London this summer from Real Madrid on a season-long loan. He made his debut off the bench against Newcastle and struggled to get into the game. Against Burnley, he …

Finnish-er Pukki bringing the good times back to Carrow Road

After Norwich's first-half defensive performance against Liverpool, you could be forgiven for thinking that yesterday's game against Newcastle would be a tough test for Daniel Farke's men. But the Canaries have one of those rare qualities of promoted sides - they are fearless. They showed against Liverpool they weren't afraid to take the game to even the highest quality opposition. Norwich continuously stretched Liverpool's backline with the searing pace of Max Aarons and Jamal Lewis. Marco Stiepermann found himself in …
