Everton 2017/18 Premier League Season Preview

After three tumultuous years under Roberto Martinez, Ronald Koeman was appointed at Everton to steady the ship.  The Dutchman brought Everton from 11th place the last two seasons up to 7th last season and managed the Toffies to 14 more points than they won last season. This season could prove to be tougher for Koeman.  He lost his star striker Romelu Lukaku this summer and has failed to truly replace him, despite spending quite a lot of money. Lukaku was …

Amidst the bedlam, United are still negotiating deals, the nature of some - unclear, yet others - pretty obvious, at this point in time. The Red Devils are reported to be in advanced talks to finally …

The 2016-17 campaign saw a number of high profile loan moves in January and some players have been given a rare life-line in Premier League football with some big money moves on permanent deals. Here are just five players whose careers could rocket from their January move or it might break them...

Everton Vs Manchester City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

This Sunday northwestern rivals of the same colour face off against each other in two intriguing matches in the Premier League. While Liverpool travel to Old Trafford, Pep Guardiola brings his Manchester City team to Goodison Park to face Ronald Koeman’s Everton.

Manchester United, for the first time in a few years, do experience having a surplus of requirements in the middle of …
Can Drinkwater really improve Manchester United's midfield?

Can Drinkwater really improve Manchester United's midfield?

Death, taxes and Manchester being linked with ex-players in the middle of a season. These are some of 'the inevitables' in human life. This time, it's Leicester City's title-winning midfielder Danny Drinkwater that's tipped to be Mourinho's January signing in order to beef up his already fairly well stocked midfield. While there's no doubts about how good this former Manchester United academy graduate has been for the last 18 months and how influential he was, in the Foxes' unthinkable league win, …
Why Mourinho is dead right about Schweinsteiger

Why Mourinho is dead right about Schweinsteiger

Former German International Bastian Schweinsteiger has been the lone subject of controversy in what has been an abundantly positive transfer window for Manchester United. The 32-year old has been reportedly told that he was not in the plans of Jose Mourinho - which has culminated into the German veteran training with the club's under-23 squad since the Portuguese took over the club in July. This has quickly become the most divisive topic among Man United fans as to whether or …
The Resurgence of Marouane Fellaini

The Resurgence of Marouane Fellaini

Marouane Fellaini did not receive a huge welcome like Paul Pogba, and neither was his an anticipated move like Ibrahimovic’s. He joined the club under David Moyes, and that was not the best of times at Old Trafford. Maybe it was the situation that was more at fault, than Fellaini himself. To give him fair credit, he did try his best to fit in, but there’s only so much a new signing can do at a club that was struggling …
