Jordan Henderson Season Review

Jordan Henderson Season Review

There has been much debate this season concerning the faltering performances of expensive players such as Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil, and the so-called vast improvement of players such as Arsenal’s other midfielder, Aaron Ramsey. One such player that’s improvement has been recognised but not necessarily to the extent that he deserves is Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson. The 23-year-old has been much maligned over the last few seasons for his supposed lack of a positive contribution to the team’s performances, but has experienced …

Player Performance Analysis | Ross Barkley Vs Liverpool

Although conceding a late equaliser against your biggest rivals is a bitter pill to swallow, Evertonians couldn’t afford to be too downhearted at the conclusion of their enthralling 3-3 draw with Liverpool on Saturday because, nevertheless, they had just witnessed the greatest attacking performance in a Merseyside derby from the Toffees for several years.

Is Cech Still Good Enough For Chelsea? Stats

Is Cech Still Good Enough For Chelsea? Stats

Petr Cech was once the best goalkeeper in the world in my opinion. During Mourinho's first spell and especially between 2004-6, Cech was consistently keeping clean sheets and making incredible saves to win Chelsea trophy after trophy. Since his fractured skull injury he has never been the same goalkeeper but he has remained Chelsea's first choice goalkeeper. This is mainly due to a lack of competition at Chelsea. However after letting a very tame Sessegnon shot past him on Saturday, …
