Man City Evolve to Beat Saints

Pellegrini has shown Mourinho something in these last four months, he has a far greater trust in youth. Sterling, De Bruyne and Delph all sub-24 yrs old have been trusted to deliver. Arguably Southampton are one of the better drilled, more obdurate teams to beat with 3 clean sheets from ten games, and yet Pellegrini trusted the triumvirate of Sterling, De Bruyne and Delph to engineer a win. Southampton were unbeaten away from home so it was brave not to …

Martial's first Manchester Derby

Martial's first Manchester Derby

In a Manchester derby defined by both manager’s risk-averse approach and an overall lack of clear goal-scoring chances, Martial’s darting runs from the left wing were a welcome breath of fresh air. In his first derby, the young Frenchman was by far the most exciting player on the pitch, the only one who seemed likely to break the tightly contested deadlock. Even though the circumstances hardly allowed for it, Anthony Martial put in another stellar performance. It was, once again, …

Manchester City vs Bournemouth Preview | Team News, Key Men and Stats

League leaders Manchester City host promoted Bournemouth following the international break which wasn't kind to them as two of their star players in Sergio Aguero and David Silva getting injured. It means that Wilfried Bony who has started just five matches in nine months is set to start and City will be relying on the magic of a certain 24-year-old who has set the league on fire since his multi-million pound move from Wolfsburg. City came roaring back from a …
The Malaise at Chelsea

The Malaise at Chelsea

There seems to be little rhyme or reason to Jose Mourinho's decision making thus far. A team overly reliant upon the jaw dropping excellence of Eden Hazard last season has been relegated to mid-table mediocrity. Some analysts point to a third season syndrome suggesting Jose's teams at Chelsea (first time) and Real Madrid all struggled in their 3rd season.
