Bayern Munich vs Arsenal : Match Preview

Arsenal face a daunting trip to the Allianz Arena to face Bayern Munich on Wednesday night. The Gunners have not gone beyond the last 16 for the last six years and when this draw was made, that streak was envisaged to continue.Bayern edge the 10 previous matches between the two sides with 5 victories while Arsenal have come on top three times.

Match Preview : Liverpool vs Chelsea

By all accounts, Liverpool have had a horrible start to the year 2017and Chelsea will be looking to make sure their month ends on an even more miserable note. In their last six matches in all competitions, Liverpool have won just once. That sole victory was a 1-0 victory against Plymouth Argyle who they were trying to beat at the second attempt. With three losses on the bounce and being knocked out of two cup competitions in the last in the last four days, Liverpool will be desperate for a win. Liverpool lie in 4th position with 45 points, 10 points below their visitors Chelsea and are in real danger of being knocked out of the title race at this rate.

Manchester City v Tottenham : Match Preview

Manchester City’s problems could get a whole lot worse come the weekend as they gear up to host Tottenham who are currently the on-form team in the Premier League. Man City are currently sitting 5th on the league table after an unconvincing run of poor form that has seen them pick up just half of the available points from their last 8 games. Spurs, on the other hand, have won all 6 of their recent league games and will be hopping to make it 7 from 7 come Saturday night. Spurs have been the better side in the last few meetings between the 2 teams having won 3 out of 3 with Man City not managing to pick up any points from the fixture since 2015. The top 6, however, is rather close and 5th placed City are sitting just 3 points behind 2nd placed Spurs. Tottenham are now just 7 points adrift of...

Frisking the Mids – Worlds top Midfielders

Eden Hazard is seeming like a man reborn under Alberto Conte. Chelsea are currently looking like genuine title contenders and that is largely owing to the persistent Belgian who has already bagged 7 league goals this term and has walked away as man of the match on 5 occasions. Hazard suffered through a difficult 2015/16 season but it would have been a long shot to write off a player with seemingly unlimited talent. Hazard is once more an absolute joy to watch and we have no doubt his impressive form will continue throughout the season.Liverpool have gotten themselves off to a flying start with a midfield and attack that have been absolutely prolific. At the centre of that attack lies Philippe Coutinho who seems to be on a mission to prove his worth. The young Brazilian has scored 5, assist...

Liverpool On Fire vs Watford

Liverpool thrashed Watford 6-1 on Sunday leaving them top of the Premier League standings for the first time since Jurgen Klopp’s arrival. Klopp seems to have finally found his footing and if Liverpool can keep up their impressive form, the prospect of ultimately lifting the title at the end of the season is a realistic one. Klopp’s seems to have finally gotten it right for Liverpool in the transfer market Senegalese winger. Sadio Mane, who scored the first goal against Watford with an acrobatic header, is showing no signs of slowing down since his move to Merseyside. Mane went on to bag a second in the second half which has upped his tally to six. Furthermore, Mane has started every league game with his presence having an astonishing effect on the prolific Liverpool strike force. Sunday w...

The Gunners are in high spirits after edging out Ludogorets 3-2 in Tuesday’s thrilling Champions League fixture where Mesut Ozil scored one of the goals of the season. Aside from the Champions League, Wenger’s men have been on a good run in the EPL and are currently sitting pretty at the top of the log, level on points with Man City. Furthermore, Arsenal are unbeaten in 9 Premier League matches including a staggering 3-0 thumping of Chelsea which raised their stakes as title contenders. More so, the Gunners are enjoying a solid home record against Spurs which should give them confidence ahead of Sunday’s North London derby. Arsenal are not without injury...

Premier League Review : Walcott On Fire While Leicester Wilt

Leicester City were crowned Premier League champions for the first time last year but are paying the price for their success. Leicester left Riyad Mahrez on the bench for the first time in 36 league matches and his absence was evident as they failed to register a shot on target. The loss leaves Leicester with just eight points from as many matches as they battle to come to terms with the demands of European football. Walcott has now scored five goals in eight games and the victory took the Gunners to joint top on the log with 19 points. Manchester City stayed top on 19 points despite being held to a 1-1 draw by Everton. When the season started, we assumed it would be a very close race to the title and it is proving to be exactly that.

Chelsea v Leicester : Our Pre Match Preview

Struggling Premier League champions Leicester City are away to Chelsea on Saturday as the competition resumes after a one week break. Leicester made history last season by being crowned the EPL champions for the first time. However, this season has not been promising with just two wins from seven matches. The team has had a particularly bad away record having lost their opening three matches on the road. Apart from a bad away record, the Foxes have also shipped a lot more goals than this time last year with their stalwarts Wes Morgan and Robert Huth showing uncharacteristic lapses in concentration. Ranieri’s men have already conceded ten goals away from home this term while the only conceded 18 in the whole of last season. Betting odds have Chelsea as heavy favorites to win this matc...

Kenya captain Victor Wanyama put up a man of the match performance as Tottenham Hotspur snapped Man City’s winning start to the season.Wanyama was imperious in midfield, shielding the back four well and stifling the forward momentum of City’s players.

United v Leicester Preview : Rooney To Be Dropped?

It’s a rare thing to have Man United cast as the underdog in a football game but they just might be against Leicester. The troubled Red Devils host the Foxes in the early kick off on Saturday. United who started the season on a high after winning their first three matches, look to be stumbling after going down to City and Watford in recent weeks. Should United lose on Saturday, it will just be the second time in his entire career that Jose Mourinho has suffered three consecutive league defeats. United will take comfort in the fact that they remain unbeaten in seven home league matches against the league champions. There may be changes to United’s line up with rumors that skipper Wayne Rooney is set to be dropped following some woeful performances this season. Drafted in his place cou...
