Attacking Quality: The Best Teams | Arsenal, Liverpool, Man City Stats

With third of a season already gone, the Premier League table seems to be split into two halves. All of the top nine teams are still, at worst, within touching distance of the Champions League places. Quite obviously, being strong offensively is one of the most important requirements if a club wants to finish in the famous top 4. Actually, it may be more important than ever before, as with so many strong teams going head-to-head, a goal difference may …

Player Performance Analysis | Ross Barkley Vs Liverpool

Although conceding a late equaliser against your biggest rivals is a bitter pill to swallow, Evertonians couldn’t afford to be too downhearted at the conclusion of their enthralling 3-3 draw with Liverpool on Saturday because, nevertheless, they had just witnessed the greatest attacking performance in a Merseyside derby from the Toffees for several years.
