The Courtship of Eden Hazard

The Courtship of Eden Hazard

"I don't want to say, 'yes, I am signing a new contract' and then in the end I don't end up signing. I want what's good for me, but I want what's good for the club because the club has given me everything. So I will see. Sometimes in my head, I wake up in the morning and think I want to go. Sometimes I think I want to stay.” Eden Hazard made that statement early last week when asked …
How Mourinho can find his Mojo through Alexis Sanchez

How Mourinho can find his Mojo through Alexis Sanchez

It has all been very quiet on the football front, a sense of calm before the impending storm, that Manchester United desperately needed after a whirlwind of the last few weeks on and off the pitch. After intense speculation about Mourinho's precarious position as manager of Manchester United, with the Portuguese reported to have 'lost' the dressing room as if a manager could ever 'win' one, it was rather fitting that the Red Devils won the game last Saturday, in …
Three Achievements of Jurgen Klopp's Three Years at Liverpool

Three Achievements of Jurgen Klopp's Three Years at Liverpool

On October 8 earlier this month, one event happened in Premier League that has become a relative rarity in English football’s top tier. It is increasingly becoming rare that a manager is allowed to complete three years in control of a Premier League side without doing something dramatic – like saving them from relegation, earning a promotion or winning silverware. Jurgen Klopp, on paper, did none of those things, but he still managed to complete three years in charge of …
Tottenham need Kane alternative to get striker back to his best

Tottenham need Kane alternative to get striker back to his best

It was expected that Harry Kane would return to Tottenham full of confidence after winning the Golden Boot at the World Cup. He was tipped by Bettingapps.co.uk to be the 18/19 Premier League top goal scorer at the start of the season, however, the England captain has looked out of sorts and lacked the dynamism that he has previously shown in a Spurs’ shirt. Although he has contributed five goals and one assist in eight Premier League matches, it hasn’t been a …
Ross Barkley Proving his Worth at Chelsea Under Sarri

Ross Barkley Proving his Worth at Chelsea Under Sarri

Ross Barkley’s Chelsea career exploded into life on Sunday as he played a key role in the team’s win over Southampton. Since joining the club in January, the 24-year-old has only played nine times in the Premier League. It was thought that the move could allow him to fulfil his potential, but he wasn’t given many opportunities to do that under Antonio Conte. The midfielder would have been tempted to look for a move elsewhere during the summer. At the …
Liverpool and Manchester City Play Out a Rare Goal-Less Draw at Anfield

Liverpool and Manchester City Play Out a Rare Goal-Less Draw at Anfield

Manchester City had not won at Anfield since May of 2003. They still have not. In what will be considered one of the title-deciding games, City drew against a Liverpool side that is still struggling to get into the form they showed last season. For two sides that scored a combined 12 goals between them in their two league matches last season, a goalless draw was the least expected result but that is how the game ended. The last time …
Triple Title Race Threatens To Heat Up

Triple Title Race Threatens To Heat Up

Seven games into the Premier League season and ahead of the biggest game of the season so far, it’s looking increasingly like there’s going to be a three-way fight for the title. Liverpool and Manchester City were always going to be the two title favourites, with the vast majority of pundits expecting their fresh rivalry to dominate the race for the top spot. But Chelsea have emerged as potentially the season’s surprise package, with Sarriball taking full flight, Jorginho an …
Paul Pogba - The Beginning Of The End?

Paul Pogba - The Beginning Of The End?

The start to Manchester United’s season has been one of peaks and troughs. Defeats to Brighton and Tottenham marked the nadir for the Red Devils, but they soon bounced back with hard-earned wins at Burnley and Watford. The past week has emphasised the Jekyll and Hyde nature of the club. An impressive opening win in Switzerland against Young Boys was followed by an insipid draw against Wolves, where they were outfought and outthought on their own pitch. However, it is …
