Fulham have improved and Lampard should be worried

Chelsea have been struggling recently in the Premier League and it seems Arsenal passed the poor form disease to the Blues after beating them at the Emirates in the league some weeks back. The Blues have seen themselves drop down the table and something has to be done immediately before the struggles get out of hand. It's no more news that they beat Morecambe 4 nil in the FA Cup but this result can't be used to judge if the Blues have weathered the storm or not. Regardless, Frank Lampard and his men should know that they'll have a game in their hands when they travel to face newly-promoted neighbors Fulham at Craven Cottage.

United show title credentials by going top of the Premier League

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men have gone top of the Premier League with 17 games played and this, I can daresay was not envisaged by many folks at this stage of the season, even amongst Man United fans. They beat Burnley 1 nil at Turf Moor in their outstanding match on Tuesday night through a goal by Paul Pogba and this pushed them to the summit of the Premier League table. The Red Devils started the season on an average note with a terrible form at home in the Premier League while they were ruthless away from home. However, in recent months they've found a solution to the poor form at Old Trafford and have won 4 and drawn 1 of the last 5 games at home. Their away form remains flawless with 7 wins and 1 draw in 8 games and has no doubt contributed to their current position at the t...

Is it finally time to end Juve’s Serie A dominance?

A good number of fans have been hoping for a shift of dominance in Serie A in recent years. Will this be the case at the end of the 2020/21 season? The question is a very difficult one to answer and it has been proven over the years in Serie A. Juventus have wholly dominated the league and there has been nothing that both old and new rivals have been able to do about it. We've seen cases where the other title contenders in the Serie A start the season like a house on fire only to falter when the pressure peaks and Juventus have an easy stroll to the defense of their title. Well, with the way the season is panning out in Italy, we may see a change this year, and what better time than now? This is arguably the best time for other big teams in Serie A to take the battle to the Old...

Saints on point as Reds falter and lose ground in title defence

Liverpool will get it tough this season and must take the tough route to defend their Premier League title. This is no secret after they succumbed to a 1 nil defeat to Southampton in the Premier League on Monday night. This is also the case as the likes of Manchester United, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester City are hot on their heels in the race for the 2020/21 Premier League title. The Reds still top the table but will go down if notable contenders like Manchester United and Manchester City win their outstanding games. The Red Devils have a game in hand while the Citizens have two. Liverpool's woes were compounded by an early strike by Danny Ings, and this result is coming after two consecutive draws against the likes of West Brom and Newcastle. The ended 2020 o...

Gunners thrashing highlights Blues’ recent poor away form

December has been a frustrating month for Frank Lampard and Chelsea in the Premier League, and more so with the 3:1 loss to an out-of-sorts Arsenal team on boxing day. The Blues have been inconsistent away from home and have now lost 3 in a row to Everton, Wolves, and Mikel Arteta's Arsenal. Arsenal had been struggling for weeks in the Premier League but still took the Blues to the cleaners even with an unfamiliar line-up. It was a game where their London rivals were supposed favorites for all three points. The Blues who have been impressive since Edouard Mendy replaced Kepa Arrizabalaga are now struggling for goals, and have been very poor on the road.

Will managers spend decades in a Premier League club again?

Remember when we had the likes of Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger managing some of the Premier League's big sides for decades? Well, that era is long gone. Do you also remember when Chelsea were referred to as the bane of managers due to the supposed ruthlessness of owner Roman Abramovich? Chelsea were described as the manager sacking club as there was no room for any consistent poor showing by managers regardless of their calibrea= and experience. Well, this is no more the case as all clubs now toe the line. Since the retirement of Alex Ferguson, and recently Arsene Wenger, we've seen those two clubs do some hiring and firing with the Gunners the latest in the list. ARSENAL COULD BECOME VERY ACTIVE IN THE MANAGE SACKING LEAGUE Funny enough, with the way the season is going for ...

The 2020/21 Premier League season continues to be unpredictable

The Matchday 14 fixtures of the 2020/21 Premier League season produced results that show that this season is a crazy one based on predictability and unpredictability. Some select results on the matchday have proven this and this season continues to see supposed contenders take spectators by storm and then fizzle out when they are expected to dazzle. Some upsets and strange results were expected on the matchday to the detriment of some of the big sides. However, this was not the case eventually, as some continued to punch above their weight. CRYSTAL PALACE VS LIVERPOOL (0:7) First off, the defending champions Liverpool were expected to have it tough in their visit to Crystal Palace, as some key figures in the team continued to be absent.

Watford Continue High Turnover of Managers

Vladimir Ivic became Watford’s ninth permanent manager to lose his job with the club in the last five years. He was dismissed by the Hornets after just four months in charge of the Championship side. It is an extraordinary turnover of managers that has been unmatched by any other professional club in England. This latest change comes after a reported fallout with the players as Watford currently sit a respectable fifth in the Championship table. Like many of his predecessors, Ivic was a surprise appointment when he was handed a one-year contract back in August. The former Maccabi Tel Aviv manager arrived after winning the league championship in Israel in each of his two seasons with the club. The decision by the Hertfordshire club was made following Watford’s 2-0 defeat to Hudde...

The first Manchester Derby for the 2020/21 Premier League season comes up this Saturday as Manchester United host Manchester City at Old Trafford.

This derby is coming at a time when both sides can be said to be in form although they've had disappointing moments this season. Therefore, it promises to be a cracking Manchester United vs Manchester City fixture. Manchester City have been favorites on paper in the Manchester Derby in recent times but will be the side seeking revenge in this game having lost both home and away to the Red Devils in the Premier League last season. Just 1 point separates the sides in the Premier League presently and the game looks evenly poised. Regardless, t...

Anfield – The bane of visiting teams in the Premier League

Liverpool are not leaving anything to chance in their quest to defend the Premier League title and are doing themselves a lot of good by making Anfield the major fortress in the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp's men have been phenomenal at home in the Premier League even in the absence of fans and it would seem foolhardy for anyone to bet against them in a Premier League home game presently. Liverpool are tied on points at the top with Tottenham Hotspur on 24 points after they thrashed Wolves 4 nil at Anfield on Sunday night and sit second in the Premier League. The Reds have continued their incredible domestic form in the Premier League despite the injuries to some key players in the team in recent times.
