Liverpool - Klopp Brain Freeze moments stacking up

On a night when the football world was hoping Liverpool would thrash Leicester as punishment for sacking one of the last few gentlemen in the game, Claudio Ranieri, it was typical that Liverpool would  capitulate into what has become their standard state of mediocrity in 2017. The spurs blitz a fortnight ago just an anomaly amidst a myriad of lacklustre performances. It had been 16 days since Liverpool's last match, so the excuse of fatigue could not be used at …

Leicester City vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Leicester host Liverpool on Monday night and there will be a weird atmosphere around the KP Stadium as it will be the first match since the sacking of Claudio Ranieri. It was done with the club's best interests at heart, as the board felt that the Italian was going to relegate them. However, it hasn't been well received by several notable pundits and it will be interesting to see how the Leicester supporters react as they had a great relationship …

6 Stories that dominated English Football this week

Pep Guardiola vs Aguero  It was a sight most had become used to this season. A frustrated Pep Guardiola yelling at Sergio Aguero to help his colleagues press. Aguero was having none of it, and it seemed like more tension was abound. Fast forward a few days and it was Aguero that helped City inch closer towards the coveted Champions League Final and a chance to lift that famous old trophy that has evaded them since, well, forever. It remains …

Tottenham Vs Stoke City Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

The football world remains, perhaps naively, shocked by the sacking of Claudio Ranieri by Leicester City on Thursday. As has become usual, most English teams have ensured a way out of Europe at the first opportunity available, although only confirmed drop outs are Tottenham, who could not get past Gent from Belgium, also on Thursday. In all this, the Premier League returns this weekend after a fortnight. It returns for at least sixteen of the twenty teams, as the other …

Drop in Clean Sheets – Better Offence or Worse Defence?

“I told them, [get] the clean sheet, I buy everybody a pizza. I think they wait until I improve my offer, okay a pizza and a hot dog.” – Claudio Ranieri, Leicester Manager during their title-winning season Clean sheets are important. For Ranieri, they are important enough to throw in a hot dog along with his already generous offer of pizzas (which he actually treated his players to) as an incentive for his players to get one.

Early contenders for the 2016-17 Golden Boot

The latest Premier League season is well and truly up and running now and after five league games, there have already been a number of players who have stood out from the crowd. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have been outstanding for Liverpool, whilst Kelechi Iheanacho and Marcus Rashford have continued to make a name for themselves as two of the best academy graduates in England. Zlatan Ibrahimovic has made an impressive start to life at Manchester United and Romelu …
Leicester City: Never change, Never change

Leicester City: Never change, Never change
