Why Chelsea need to change back to 3-4-3

Chelsea have put in a tame defence of their Premier League title as they are already 15 points off the pace. They remain in a Champions League position, but Tottenham are building momentum in 5th place and five doesn’t go into four. It would be incredible if the Blues went from champions to the Europa League, but their decline during 2015/16 showed that nothing can be taken for granted. Antonio Conte would have realised the challenge on his hands when …
Sanchez to Manchester United: What Would He Bring?

Sanchez to Manchester United: What Would He Bring?

'You can never enough world class players at a football club' - goes the saying. It is easy to see why a whole host of teams would want to have a talent like Alexis Sanchez in their ranks. To be able to field a footballer who is always up for a fight on the pitch - to be the leader and take responsibilities in a way he has done at Arsenal could prove vital for any football club, especially at …
How Big of a Loss is Philippe Coutinho?

How Big of a Loss is Philippe Coutinho?

It is hard to believe that Philippe Coutinho’s transfer to Barcelona will be topped this transfer window, with the constant speculation surrounding the Brazilian finally put to bed. Coutinho dazzled Anfield and the Premier League for five-years in a Liverpool shirt, but his £150 million move to Barcelona, a move he has called a “dream”, is now complete. The 25-year-old will grace the pitch with the world’s greatest player in the eyes of many, and a former team-§mate whom he …
Why Daniel Sturridge needs to leave Liverpool this month

Why Daniel Sturridge needs to leave Liverpool this month

Daniel Sturridge needs a transfer away from Liverpool, whether that be permanently or on loan. The striker has been linked to a number of clubs in recent weeks and there hasn’t been a shortage of interest in previous windows either. Despite this, he has remained at Anfield and that has hindered both his domestic and international careers. There was a time when the England international was regarded as one of the best goal-scorers in the Premier League. A few seasons …
Why Arsenal must act in the January transfer window

Why Arsenal must act in the January transfer window

Arsenal faced their latest setback under Arsene Wenger as they were knocked out of the FA Cup by Championship club Nottingham Forest. This has been a competition that has brought a lot of success for the Frenchman in recent seasons, but he made wholesale changes and the squad players couldn’t deliver the victory required. There have been some on social media that have suggested it is a blessing in disguise, but it is another example of how the club have …
Is The Recent Criticism Of Nemanja Matic justified?

Is The Recent Criticism Of Nemanja Matic justified?

One of the most surprising transfers in the Premier League last summer was Nemanja Matic’s transfer from Chelsea to Manchester United as it is very rare for a player to be allowed to move from one of the biggest clubs in the country to another. Jose Mourinho was clearly a big fan of Matic during his spell with the Blues so when he had the opportunity to land the Serbian to his squad at Old Trafford, he pounced to sign …
Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

Luke Shaw is Beginning to Thrive Under Mourinho

One of the criticisms in a long list that Jose Mourinho has faced throughout his career is his lack of trust in young players. Although in 2017/18 with his continued faith in Marcus Rashford, shrewd management of Anthony Martial and outstanding use of Jesse Lingard (young, in terms of top-flight experience) - the Portuguese is proving them all wrong. And rather quietly so. It has been a weird campaign for the Red Devils, I called this spooky in November and …
Has Alvaro Morata been an upgrade on Diego Costa at Chelsea?

Has Alvaro Morata been an upgrade on Diego Costa at Chelsea?

Alvaro Morata was the villain of the piece as Chelsea failed to beat Arsenal on Wednesday night. The current champions had the better chances and should have put the game beyond doubt before Hector Bellerin popped up with an incredible equaliser. The Gunners showed good heart to avoid defeat, but they shouldn't have been given the opportunity to get back into the match. The visitors' striker has scored goals this season and appeared to be a decent addition, but yesterday's …
