Cesc Fabregas - A world class player in decline?

Cesc Fabregas will be remembered as one of the best midfielders of the modern era when he eventually hangs his boots up. The 30-year-old has been playing regularly since the 2004-5 season when he broke through at Arsenal at the age of 17. In the time since he has racked up an impressive 338 Premier League appearances across two spells in the division for two of England's biggest clubs.

Matic - The Enabler Who Has Hit Form at the Right Time

On Sunday, Manchester United managed to overcome a robust Chelsea side to claim all three points and strengthen their position in the top four ahead of the last leg of the Premier League season. Despite starting the match very much second best to the visitors, the Red Devils steadily grew into the game gaining more control in the final third.

Is The Recent Criticism Of Nemanja Matic justified?

One of the most surprising transfers in the Premier League last summer was Nemanja Matic’s transfer from Chelsea to Manchester United as it is very rare for a player to be allowed to move from one of the biggest clubs in the country to another.

Most managers …

Chelsea's Season So Far: A Roller Coaster Ride

Ever since Manchester United won their eighteenth title in 2008-09, which was their third successive title in as many seasons, the Premier League title has been very difficult to defend. Manchester United came close to repeating the hat-trick of three titles in three years between 2010-11 and 2012-13, but the 2011-12 title was snatched away from them in injury time on the last match day of the season by their neighbors. Since that run from the Red Devils, none of …
