What to expect from De Bruyne under Pep

What to expect from De Bruyne under Pep

Kevin De Bruyne is arguably one of the best number 10s in the game right now, and has been since his re-emergence while playing for Wolfsburg. His prowess for City will come as no surprise for long-term viewers of the magical Belgian playmaker, as he has produced consistent great performances at every club he has ever played for. At least when he was picked for the team… Chelsea's seeming reluctance to give him a chance will remain a mystery to …

Compiling an XI of Chelsea Rejects

Out of the discarded players of Chelsea in recent years two must stick out for their incoming manager Antonio Conte: Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku. Chelsea banked a combined £45m selling that pair and it will take significantly more to get them back. Conte used Carlos Tevez as something of a battering ram and focal point at Juventus and Lukaku was surely envisaged to do the same when he first signed by Chelsea. Lukaku's 18 Premier League goals is …

KDB ready for PSG

It was at the end of January when I asked if Manchester City could cope without Kevin De Bruyne, who had just sustained a knee injury. He had made quite the impact at The Etihad since his big money transfer from Wolfsburg last summer and his loss at a crucial time in the season threatened to disrupt the club’s push for honours. Despite the depth of talent in City’s squad, De Bruyne’s season stats suggested he could be a big …

Can Manchester City cope without Kevin De Bruyne?

Can Manchester City cope without Kevin De Bruyne?

The sight of Kevin De Bruyne going down with a knee injury late in Manchester City’s League Cup semi-final win at home to Everton on Wednesday night will have been a disconcerting sight to City fans. The attacking midfielder has been an integral part of Manuel Pellegrini’s side since his signing in the summer from Vfl Wolfsburg for a reported £55m. That sort of price tag can weigh heavy on players and struggle to justify the amounts spent on them …
The Most Creative Players This Season

The Most Creative Players This Season

It may be the goalscorers that grab the headlines and get the plaudits in the Premier League, but behind every goalscorer there is a playmaker. You all know that type of player, the one that creates a chance from nowhere and wins your team the game. The player that plays that killer pass or pin point cross, the type owners pay millions of pounds to bring to their clubs. We are half way through the 2015/2016 Premier League season now …

Mourinho: The Reasons Behind his Sacking

Mourinho: The Reasons Behind his Sacking

Jose Mourinho is the archetypal Marmite type of person, you either love him or you loathe him, there is not much in between. Jose was unceremoniously dumped by Chelsea a mere seven months after winning his 3rd and Chelsea's 4th Premier League (Ancelotti having won the other one). The problems at Chelsea started in pre-season, Jose decided to allow his players an extra week off, because he felt they were jaded at the end of the 14/15 season because of …
