Is Everyone Missing A Trick With Marcus Rashford?

Is Everyone Missing A Trick With Marcus Rashford?

Gareth Southgate had a few interesting thoughts on Marcus Rashford after England’s 4-0 defeat of Bulgaria. The manager admitted that he had, like so many others, almost willed the player to develop as a number nine since the then-teenager burst onto the scene in 2016. However, the presence of Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane in those positions for club and country respectively meant that Rashford was shunted onto the flanks in time.  Southgate now believes that the player is most …

Lamela reignites Tottenham career with an impressive start to season

Tottenham made some eye-catching signings during the summer, with Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso joining the club. They strengthened the midfield options at the club and although it was feared Christian Eriksen would depart, the Danish international remains in North London. Due to the quality available to Mauricio Pochettino, it has been a surprise to see Erik Lamela start all four Premier League matches. The Argentine has struggled to hold down a regular starting place, but he is now …

The early success of James emphasises Manchester United's decline

The early success of James emphasises Manchester United's decline

Daniel James has been a rare bright spot for Manchester United at the beginning of the 2019/20 campaign. The Welsh international was a surprise addition for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side over the summer, for a fee of £15 million. That is looking like a potential bargain based on his first few performances in red, as he has caused problems for opposition defenders and he looks to be mature enough for the Premier League. The 21-year-old has had an incredible rise …
Arsenal need to start Lacazette against Tottenham

Arsenal need to start Lacazette against Tottenham

Arsenal were disappointing in defeat against Liverpool last weekend. There was a clear plan from Unai Emery, as he looked to counter with pace and exploit the wide spaces left vacant by the advancing Reds' full-backs. It wasn't a bad idea. In fact, if Nicolas Pepe had scored his one-on-one at 0-0, the Gunners may have gone on to get something from the game. However, the new signing was denied by Adrian and a predictable home win came to pass. …
Spurs’ Eriksen Dilemma Could Derail Campaign

Spurs’ Eriksen Dilemma Could Derail Campaign

Mauricio Pochettino has made his displeasure around England’s closed transfer window known yet again, and with good reason. Christian Eriksen, Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen are all into the final year of their contracts, leaving Spurs vulnerable to bids in the European transfer market, the window for which closes only on the second of September. Given the lack of defensive cover, the club may still hang onto the two players on the wrong side of thirty and let them run …
Liverpool need to get back to their defensive best against Arsenal

Liverpool need to get back to their defensive best against Arsenal

Liverpool came close to winning the Premier League last season and a huge reason for that was their defensive quality. The Reds managed to keep 21 clean sheets from 38 matches over the course of the campaign. Virgil van Dijk went on to win the PFA Player of the Year award, with his performances standing out in the heart of the back four at Anfield. It was expected that they would go on to have a similar record this season, …
