It almost became a template that teams adopted …

Three Achievements of Jurgen Klopp's Three Years at Liverpool

On October 8 earlier this month, one event happened in Premier League that has become a relative rarity in English football’s top tier. It is increasingly becoming rare that a manager is allowed to complete three years in control of a Premier League side without doing something dramatic – like saving them from relegation, earning a promotion or winning silverware.

Winter games in the Premier League must feel like a series of tests for the teams. One after the other, the tests keep coming, until they suddenly stop.

Is Mark Hughes closing in on the exit door at Stoke City?

Stoke City were the latest victims of Burnley, who rose remarkably to 4th place in the Premier League after Ashley Barnes' 89th minute winner at Turf Moor. It was elation for Sean Dyche's men, but that result sparked more disappointment and frustration amongst the Potters' supporters, a lot of them now calling for Mark Hughes' head. Tony Pulis instilled Premier League stability at Stoke ever since their promotion in the 2007/08 campaign, and Hughes too has succeeded since his appointment …
