Chelsea vs Watford Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Watford enter November without a victory and a relegation battle looms on the horizon. On Saturday, they welcome Chelsea to Vicarage Road, suggesting that it may get worse before it gets better. The Blues have been rampant away from home this season with 16 goals in their last four Premier League fixtures on the road. It seems that the players are more confident away from Stamford Bridge and benefit from the extra space afforded to them. That said, their defensive …

Chelsea vs Manchester United Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

There are going to be two big Carabao Cup matches that dominate the proceedings this week, as four of the traditional Premier League top six face-off. Chelsea entertain Manchester United, as Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer aim to win their first trophies at their respective clubs. Although the latter has won competitions as a manager, a triumph in this competition would go a long way to convincing the doubters that he can compete at the highest level. The home side …

KRC Genk Vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

When the Champions League groups are drawn, pundits rush to nominate the favourites to progress to last sixteen and also to identify the least likely teams to make it past the group stage. When Group E teams were drawn, the pundits would have nominated the current Champions Liverpool as the favourite to progress to the next stage, while they would have nominated KRC Genk as the weakest team in the group. On Matchday 3 of the Champions League group stages, …
Is Alexander-Arnold Liverpool’s most important player?

Is Alexander-Arnold Liverpool’s most important player?

It could be argued that Trent Alexander-Arnold is the biggest positive of the Jurgen Klopp reign at Liverpool, as he has come through the academy to secure a starting position. Considering the quality that the German has brought to the club, including Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, that is quite the achievement. The emergence of the right-back has been a major reason for the style of play, as both full-backs are expected to offer width and creativity, allowing the forwards …
Arsenal's Lack of Link Play Limits Them Against United

Arsenal's Lack of Link Play Limits Them Against United

Arsenal's draw at Old Trafford continued a run of satisfactory results but underwhelming performances. Their plan appeared to be to sit back and hit Manchester United on the counterattack. While the satisfactory result suggests the plan worked, they struggled to counter effectively. This exposed an issue that has manifested itself in a few different ways this season; Arsenal don't have a good link between their midfield and attack. [caption id="attachment_84034" align="alignleft" width="196"] Arsenal's average position map against Liverpool courtesy of …
Time For Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain To Step Up

Time For Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain To Step Up

Five games, five wins and five points clear at the top of the table. It is all going rather swimmingly for Liverpool at the moment. The win against Newcastle was their fourteenth in a row in the top flight and they became the first team ever to do so scoring at least two goals in each of those fixtures.   The stat does hint at attacking riches and that sure is the case. The Reds are blessed with a front …
Teemu Pukki – Norwich’s Talisman

Teemu Pukki – Norwich’s Talisman

Of all the teams that got promoted this season to the English Premier League, Norwich City is looking like the one most likely to stay up. Aston Villa have a good squad but they are yet to produce a result that makes one sit up. Yes, they did beat Everton by 2-0 at Villa Park but given the Toffees’ form, I do not believe that is too significant. Sheffield United have won but only against the currently underwhelming Crystal Palace. …

Leicester City vs Tottenham Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Leicester City are fancied to compete for a top six finish in this Premier League season. They will offer a stern test for Tottenham following a rocky start to the season. They failed to win in the Champions League as they blew a two goal lead for the second time this campaign. It will be unlikely to cost them in Europe, but it will be a worry for Mauricio Pochettino as he continues to build the club. This match should …
