Leicester City vs Liverpool Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

This will be another difficult test for Leicester as they come up against only one of the two sides that have managed to beat them in the league this season. Liverpool have been inconsistent under Jurgen Klopp, but the opportunity to do the double over Leicester is a good one for them, and it could inject impetus into their season. The club have been on a good run of results over the last seven days, and remain in both cup …
Where Should Loic Remy Go This Month?

Where Should Loic Remy Go This Month?

There is normally more demand than supply in this market, with the sides at the top of the table wanting to sign players to further their European hopes and sides at the bottom needing to strengthen to avoid the drop. Most of the players that clubs have on their long term target list won't be available this month as their current clubs won't want to sell key players, when it will be hard to replace them. Also the fees involved …

The Art of Creativity

If you listen to most pundits and commentators they will tell you four Strikers are required when you are in 4 competitions; the League, FA Cup, the Capital One Cup and Champions League. However it's noticeable Manuel Pellegrini spent his entire transfer budget of £107m on Kevin DeBruyne and Raheem Sterling - creative midfielders. Man City have so far persevered with 2 recognised strikers in Aguero and Bony. Equally Wenger has persisted with Giroud and Walcott in Danny Welbeck's injury …

Stoke City v Chelsea | League Cup 4th Round Preview

With the English League Cup set to keep us all entertained in midweek, the headline fixture will take place at the Britannia Stadium when defending champions Chelsea make what is usually a daunting trip for any side in England. Stoke will go into this game on the back of a disappointing home defeat against newly promoted Watford and should be desperate to right the wrongs against Mourinho's men who have had a very poor and uncharacteristic season in many ways, …
The Malaise at Chelsea

The Malaise at Chelsea

There seems to be little rhyme or reason to Jose Mourinho's decision making thus far. A team overly reliant upon the jaw dropping excellence of Eden Hazard last season has been relegated to mid-table mediocrity. Some analysts point to a third season syndrome suggesting Jose's teams at Chelsea (first time) and Real Madrid all struggled in their 3rd season. What is apparent is that players appear to be playing within themselves. It can be no coincidence Eden Hazard has 3 …

Chelsea v Swansea City Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

‘Preseason is fake. If you’re very bad it’s fake, and if you’re too good it’s fake.’
Well, José, your side have certainly been the former this summer, with the Blues’ pre-season schedule drawing to a close with Sunday’s 1-0 reverse by Arsenal in the Community Shield. In fact, Mourinho’s men are without a win in the off-season; losing 4-2 to a second-string New York Red Bulls side, 1-0 to Fiorentina, and drawing 1-1 and 2-2 with European high-flyers …
Why Chelsea will need further additions this summer

Why Chelsea will need further additions this summer

A mistake a championship winning side can easily make is resting on their laurels. Even the very best sides in the world should always be looking to freshen up their squads in the summer with new faces. The risk of becoming stagnant is a real threat to any title holder and it’s an easy trap to fall into when you are experiencing success. The current Premier League champions Chelsea are no different. In the end they took the Premier League …
