Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Injury Underlines Liverpool's Need to Keep Gini Wijnaldum

Liverpool have had a positive summer to date, but they were dealt a bitter blow on Wednesday as it was announced that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would miss the majority of the 2018/19 season. It is thought that competitive game-time during the next 12 months would be regarded as a bonus for the midfielder. The 24-year-old suffered serious ligament damage during a Champions League match against Roma in April and the prognosis has been kept out of the media until now. The …
Perisic Proved Why He Could be the Right Man for Manchester United

Perisic Proved Why He Could be the Right Man for Manchester United

So, the World Cup is over. Given the utter pointlessness of a fixture between the two losing semi-finalists, it is worth revisiting the football match that actually mattered - where national pride was on the line - and so was the opportunity to fight for the ultimate glory. In the end, it was Croatia who - after trailing, courtesy of a stupendous free-kick five minutes into the match, from Tottenham Hotspur full-back Kieran Trippier - then regrouped, to find the …
Fellaini Stays - State of Manchester United's Midfield

Fellaini Stays - State of Manchester United's Midfield

So, the cat is finally out of the bag. Marouane Fellaini has confirmed where he is going to be playing his football beyond the Summer - and it is not AC Milan or China. The Belgian midfielder has signed a two-year extension at Manchester United which will keep him at the club until 2020 at the least, with an option for one more year included in the contract, making it a window where Jose Mourinho is having everything his way, …
Aleksandr Golovin Would be a Smart Signing for Chelsea

Aleksandr Golovin Would be a Smart Signing for Chelsea

Chelsea have had a slow start to the summer with doubts remaining about their manager and their playing staff. They managed to win the FA Cup to end their season on a high, but they have had little to get excited about since. Antonio Conte isn't expected to remain as manager of the club for the 2018/19 season, but he is still in the post at the time of writing. Meanwhile, their lack of Champions League football will make it …
Willian to Manchester United Would Benefit All Three Parties

Willian to Manchester United Would Benefit All Three Parties

Manchester United have already made moves in transfer window as they prepare to challenge for the title next season. Jose Mourinho has made several marquee signings since his appointment as manager at Old Trafford and another one could happen this summer. The Mail report that the Portuguese coach wants to sign Willian from former club Chelsea. The Brazilian has already played under Mourinho and a reunion could be on the cards this summer. Willian has found it difficult over the …
Martial, Mourinho and the Whataboutery at Manchester United

Martial, Mourinho and the Whataboutery at Manchester United

Recently, I wrote about the surprisingly positive start that Manchester United had made in the summer transfer window, particularly in a World Cup year where prices can be as volatile as they come. The Red Devils have made a couple of early signings already, addressing the two weak areas in the squad: midfield and fullback. Jose Mourinho - who seems to be enjoying the role of a pundit when not taking pictures with the Russian President - does look like …

Leicester vs Arsenal Preview | Team News & Key Players

Leicester City are solidly in midtable and don't have a whole lot left to play for this season as, barring a reasonably significant swing in goal difference, they cannot finish any lower than 10th.  Their recent performances have looked like a team with nothing to play for.  Leicester are winless in their last five matches, losing four and drawing one, while only scoring two goals.  That said, the Foxes could be keen to get some revenge on Arsenal after the …

West Brom vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

The Premier League is drawing to its climax and this weekend could have big repercussions at both ends of the table. Tottenham face a difficult trip to in-form West Brom, who realise that they must win this weekend if they are to keep their slim hopes of surviving relegation alive. Meanwhile, the visitors could see their lead over Chelsea cut if they fail to win and their top-four place will be under threat. Both teams have something to play for …
