Liverpool Go Top of the Table with a 4-1 Win over Cardiff City

Liverpool and Cardiff City like to play high scoring games. The past three games between these two sides had yielded more than four goals per game. Moreover, newly promoted Cardiff were travelling to the fortress of Anfield and Liverpool had just dispatched Red Star Belgrade 4-0 in the midweek game in Champions League. So, it was expected that the result of today’s game would be a high-scoring Liverpool win. That is what it turned out to be. The only wrinkle …

Tottenham are facing a difficult test in the Champions League as they welcome Barcelona to Wembley. It is going to be an uphill task for the Premier League team to qualify from their group after a disappointing defeat to Inter Milan two weeks ago.

Could Tom Carroll be the Key to Swansea's Survival this Season?

Swansea City currently find themselves in 19th after a poor start to the campaign. Having finished 15th last season, the Swans will be looking to emulate that this season but have found it to be quite challenging following the departure of talisman Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton for £45m. Having signed for £4.5m in the January transfer window, how influential could Tom Carroll become in Swansea's race to beat the drop this season? Carroll is more of a deep-lying central midfielder with great …
Analysing Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli's Attacking Contribution

Analysing Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli's Attacking Contribution

Tottenham have had one of the best attacks in the Premier League during recent seasons and the influence of their two advanced midfielders is central to that. Mauricio Pochettino has favoured a 3-4-2-1 formation, which has allowed both Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli to take their games to the next level. They have each added consistency and regularly contribute in the final third. The reason the team's been so successful is that the two of them provide different qualities to the …
Aurier's League Debut Perfectly Summarizes his Enigmatic Situation

Aurier's League Debut Perfectly Summarizes his Enigmatic Situation

Arguably the most controversial deal of the summer took Paris Saint-Germain’s Serge Aurier to Tottenham Hotspur, with questions surrounding the player, the price, and Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino. The fact one of Europe’s best right-backs was replaced by Dani Alves and allowed to leave PSG for £23 million is skeptical to say the least. It was Aurier’s disciplinary problems that highlighted Unai Emery’s decision to sell the Ivorian, after he was arrested for driving under the influence, suspended for homophobic …
