Liverpool V Wigan | Tactical Stats Analysis

Liverpool and Wigan met at the DW stadium with LFC looking to continue their good away form and pick up another 3 points as against Villa last week. Formation wise Liverpool lined up with a 4-4-1-1 (see graphic) with Maxi playing just behind Suarez in the free role operating between the lines. Downing started on the left but surprisingly looked to drift inside on his weaker foot with Kuyt positioned on the right and looking to link up with Suarez …

Wigan v Chelsea | Strong defensive effort

Seven points from the last four games represents a better return than our first 12 games of the season, I think that says it all. The late, late penalty given to Blackburn in a game that really should have been won has seemed to galvanise the squad, focusing the players and in particular the defence, who in return have been showing more resolve (bar the 4-0 thrashing at home to Arsenal) than they have done all season. We are finally …

Arsenal returned to winning ways, after last weekend’s disappointing home draw with Fulham, with a convincing 4-0 win at Wigan on Saturday.

Our current stint in the Premier League is on the verge of coming to an abrupt, slightly embarrassing conclusion with the possibility of being completely out of the survival frame and cut adrift at the bottom of the 'Best League in the World' by the season of good will. …

Wigan vs Bolton | Match Report

Three points on the board and I was able to watch match of the day without skipping the Bolton match is always good. The short trip to the DW stadium was one of hope and positive feeling that we would get the result we so badly needed. Good away support from the Bolton faithful all in loud voice spurring on the wanderers. The game didn’t take too long to spring into life with a good early goal from Nigel Reo-Coker …

Everton v Wigan | All on Delivery

Last season, Everton played out a dour goalless draw with Wigan at Goodison Park, continually thwarted by their visitor's resilient defence. The Toffees still dominated statistically, hitting 14 shots to six, sending in 36 crosses to 13 and missing four clear cut chances to two. Evidently, as well as their opponents defended, the Toffees clearly lacked an element of luck. Despite several players leaving in the summer transfer window, the likely line-up for tomorrow will potentially be similar to a …
