Arsenal face a difficult trip to the Vitality Stadium on Tuesday as they attempt to extend their winning run in the league to three matches. It is important that they continue to put the pressure on the sides above them as there is still an outside chance of a title challenge.

There are some managers in the Premier League who have genuinely good reasons to be quite happy. Eddie Howe and Antonio Conte both certainly have reasons to rejoice this Christmas. This week, Conte expressed his pleasure and was thankful for the pressure that comes with the tag of early season favorites to win the league. Eddie Howe, on the other hand, would surely be happy with his team’s showing in the first half of this season, despite the dampener that …

AFC Bournemouth: A Small Club With a Big Heart

It would be fair to say that five years ago only a few knew that there were three clubs from the South Coast of England and a club called ‘Bournemouth’ actually existed. Portsmouth’s abrupt decline and journey to the fourth division of English football had coincided with the revival of Southampton, who managed to finish 14th in their return to the Premier League in 2012. At that point in time, this club called Bournemouth had assumed the form of being …

Ronald Koeman Deserves More Credit

 When the Premier League Manager of the Season announcement comes in May, it will almost certainly be Claudio Ranieri that scoops the award. In truth, only Mauricio Pochettino has any chance of beating the Italian to the award. Meanwhile, Slaven Bilic, Quique Flores and Eddie Howe have rightly garnered widespread plaudits for their respective achievements this term. The quality of those five managers has led to Ronald Koeman’s accomplishments being left to go a little off the radar, but the …

Assessing the New Premier League Managers

The three promoted teams Norwich, Watford and Bournemouth have kept their head above water in the first eight games with 8pts, 10pts and 8pts respectively. Leicester are doing well though, on 16pts from nine games. Sanchez-Flores and Claudio Ranieri deserve extra praise as they have come into a new team, a new country, and a new league a mere five months ago and galvanised them overnight (although, of course, Ranieri did manage Chelsea before Mourinho took over the first time).
