Bernardo Silva In A League Of His Own

Watching the games between the best teams in the league by a country mile this season, one player stood out over both fixtures. No, it wasn’t the Professional Footballers Association and Premier League Player of the Year, Virgil Van Dijk of Liverpool. Nor was it the player football writers deemed to be the best in Raheem Sterling of Manchester City.  While Bernardo Silva didn’t exactly warm the bench last season, his minutes were limited in the Premier League and Pep …

Another Sergio Aguero hat-trick confirms his place among Premier League's elite

When contemplating the Premier League's all-time elite goalscorers, names like Alan Shearer, Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard, Thierry Henry, Michael Owen and Robbie Fowler come to mind.

Is Olivier Giroud to West Ham the perfect move for all parties?

The deal was in the pipeline for some time, leading Arsene Wenger to seek attacking alternatives. A month earlier he had turned to Montpellier’s top goal scorer during their first ever Ligue 1 winning campaign, Frenchman Olivier Giroud. “He has a very good physical presence and is exceptional in the air, with a great work ethic,” …

The Top Strikers in the Premier League - Who's More Clinical and Who's More Valuable?
