Evaluating Unai Emery's Start at Arsenal

Evaluating Unai Emery's Start at Arsenal

When Arsene Wenger stepped down at the end of last season he was leaving a gigantic hole for his successor to fill. Arsenal chose Unai Emery to fill that hole. His first six months have had some highlights, such as the 22 game unbeaten run, and some low-lights, such as the 5-1 beat down at the hands of Liverpool. More than halfway through the season the honeymoon period is over, so it is time to start evaluating the work Emery has …
The decision to sell Dembele could derail Tottenham's season

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 …

Chelsea vs PAOK Thessaloniki Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Chelsea are in a dominant position in their Champions League group and they will be looking for another victory over PAOK Thessaloniki. The Blues have a 100% record in the competition and they have already qualified for the next stage. Although they have ambitions greater than the Europa League, they should treat the competition with respect and look to win the trophy in May. Maurizio Sarri hasn't won a major trophy as a manager, which is one of the reasons …

Paris Saint-Germain Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Champions League group stage has reached its penultimate game week and most groups are looking settled. In fact, in almost all the groups, the teams qualifying for the last 16 round are decided and perhaps only the order of first or second might change. But not so in Group C. Originally billed as the “Group of Death”, this group is more than living up to its tag. Liverpool had the chance to almost secure qualification in the last game against Red Star …

Tottenham Hotspur v Inter Milan Preview | Key Men, Team News & Stats

Tottenham Hotspur versus Inter Milan is one of the storied fixtures of the last decade - for it paved the platform for one of the most exciting footballers in Welshman Gareth Bale to put himself in the spotlight. Since then both clubs have had mixed fortunes - while Spurs have, in the last few years been the most consistent side in the Premier League, they have still not been able to crack it in Europe where they have for various …

Red Star Belgrade Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

The Champions League returns for the fourth game week of the group stage this week and many progressions to the round of last 16 are expected to be sealed on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. However, Group C is living up to its “Group of Death” tag and the progressions to the next stage from this Group will likely not be decided before the sixth game week rolls in. Liverpool are the leaders of the group at 6 points and on Tuesday …
Liverpool 4 Red Star Belgrade 0: The Midfield - A New Hope

Liverpool 4 Red Star Belgrade 0: The Midfield - A New Hope

These things come with caveats. Four goals and a clean sheet are never to be sniffed at, particularly in Europe, but you have to look at the opposition. Vladan Milojevic’s Red Star Belgrade set a high bar with a point against Napoli in the opening game of Group C, but it proved to be something of a false dawn. Following a drubbing in Paris and ill-disciplined performance at a 100% Red Anfield, it’s easy to see why they were a …

Liverpool Vs Red Star Belgrade Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

1992 was a defining year for football. Two footballing giants of the previous two decades fell behind in terms of their pedigree and the decline started with the 1992-93 season. Since 1992-1993, Liverpool have been trying to win the Premier League but have not succeeded. Since that same season, Red Star Belgrade (Crvena Zvezda) have not been able to play in Europe (for a multitude of reasons). As Liverpool were finishing runners-up behind Arsenal in the summer of 1991, Red …
