Chelsea are approaching a crossroads under Maurizio Sarri. They remain in all the cup competitions, therefore their season is far from over, but recent results have been a worry. They have been humiliated against Bournemouth and Manchester City, with the manager openly criticising the mentality of the players. This has been a problem that has affected the Blues for a long time and it is now time for change. They have one of the finest youth academies at their disposal …

Chelsea's Season So Far: A Roller Coaster Ride

Ever since Manchester United won their eighteenth title in 2008-09, which was their third successive title in as many seasons, the Premier League title has been very difficult to defend. Manchester United came close to repeating the hat-trick of three titles in three years between 2010-11 and 2012-13, but the 2011-12 title was snatched away from them in injury time on the last match day of the season by their neighbors.

The Italian opted to move to a 3-4-3 system that he has become known for during his coaching career. There have always been doubts in England about formations containing three at the back and that caused some to …
Conte, Guardiola and Tactical Victories

Conte, Guardiola and Tactical Victories

Something that has never failed to astound me is the level of ignorance that exists in certain sections of the UK media when it comes to the likes of Antonio Conte and Pep Guardiola. I believe there remains a level of desperation from some for Guardiola to fail, simply so they can dismiss his accomplishments at Barcelona and Bayern Munich because they were not in the Premier League. As if their primary function is to prove to all and sundry …
