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, …
Dani Ceballos Dazzles in Full Debut

Dani Ceballos Dazzles in Full Debut

Dani Ceballos started his first match for Arsenal on Saturday and lit up Emirates Stadium in the Gunners' 2-1 victory. The Spaniard lifted Unai Emery's side through a difficult match, getting Arsenal back to back Premier League wins to start a season for the first time since 2009/2010. Ceballos arrived in London this summer from Real Madrid on a season-long loan. He made his debut off the bench against Newcastle and struggled to get into the game. Against Burnley, he …
Finnish-er Pukki bringing the good times back to Carrow Road

Finnish-er Pukki bringing the good times back to Carrow Road

After Norwich's first-half defensive performance against Liverpool, you could be forgiven for thinking that yesterday's game against Newcastle would be a tough test for Daniel Farke's men. But the Canaries have one of those rare qualities of promoted sides - they are fearless. They showed against Liverpool they weren't afraid to take the game to even the highest quality opposition. Norwich continuously stretched Liverpool's backline with the searing pace of Max Aarons and Jamal Lewis. Marco Stiepermann found himself in …
Jaded Liverpool Make a Narrow Escape at St. Mary’s

Jaded Liverpool Make a Narrow Escape at St. Mary’s

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool took on one of his least favoured opponents away from home today.  The Reds travelled to St. Mary’s to take on the Saints, who are one of only three teams to have beaten Klopp’s Liverpool thrice in England. As expected, it was a difficult outing for the Reds. It was a game where a brilliant Firmino goal was bookended by two goals from two players scoring against their former employers. For Southampton, it was their first home …

Liverpool Vs Chelsea | UEFA Super Cup Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Liverpool are going play in a final (of sorts) in Istanbul. Liverpool are going to play Chelsea in Europe. Both these statements when said in isolation, are loaded with meaning and memories for the Reds. They will get to relive the memories of both those statements when they play in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday night. Yes, the venue is not the Ataturk Stadium where Liverpool scripted the most miraculous of Champions League wins. Wednesday’s game is set to …
Martial's performance vindicated Manchester United's decision to sell Lukaku

Martial's performance vindicated Manchester United's decision to sell Lukaku

Manchester United started the season with a very positive result as they thrashed top-six rivals, Chelsea, scoring four goals in the process. The scoreline was arguably harsh on the visitors, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side capitalised on the tactical flaws displayed by Frank Lampard in his first game in charge of the Blues. There are similarities that can be drawn between the two clubs, due to adored former players being in the dugout. However, the quality in the forward line …
