Chelsea vs Liverpool preview – First big game of the season

It's still early days in the 2020/21 Premier League season with the Matchday 2's fixtures yet to be executed, but we have a cracker on our hands already as Chelsea will welcome defending Champions Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Sunday. I'm sure a good number of football fans can still recollect how the last Premier League game between these two sides panned out although it was at Anfield. A whopping eight goals were scored the last time they met with the Reds emerging victoriously with a 5:3 win in an enthralling game. Regardless, both sides will face each other coming off the back of garnering maximum points in their opening game of the season. Liverpool had to rely on an 88th-minute penalty converted by hat-trick hero Mohammed Salah to beat newly-promoted Leeds United 4:3 at An...

PSG on the back foot as racism controversy hits Ligue 1

The 2020/21 season of the French League has started with favorites for the title starting off on the back foot. Incidents from their second game of the season have already birthed controversies that may last for a while but as expected, it won't be a surprise if Thomas Tuchel and his men end up hoisting the Ligue 1 title at the end of the season regardless of how badly they've started. Paris Saint-Germain have already been suffering from some lack of luck before the season began. Firstly, the lost 1 nil to Bayern Munich in the final of the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League. It was their first final in a competition whose title has eluded them in spite of the stars on parade. Shortly after, there was the news of a significant portion of the first team being sidelined after being expos...

Liverpool must splash cash to defend Premier League title

The 2020/21 Premier League season kicks off this weekend and all eyes will be on defending champions Liverpool, as they'll be hell-bent on mounting a successful title defense. The Reds were exceptional last season and were unbeaten for most parts until the league title was almost as good as won. Jurgen Klopp and his men had very little worries in various areas of the pitch last season as players put in the required efforts including those on the bench when occasionally called upon. They took the best of the best last season to the cleaners and the points gap between first and second on the 2019/20 log is a proof and tells the full story of how brilliant they were in a season where they were heads and shoulders above their rivals. I agree that they were the best team in England ...

How the transfer ban favored Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri anticipated a sinking ship at Chelsea after they were hit with a transfer ban and made the move to Juventus in an unexpected departure. This left the Blues with an uncertain future and they had to settle down with a rookie Frank Lampard who took over, after just one professional-managerial season with Championship side Derby County. The future didn't appear to hold much for Chelsea, and more so with the departure of the talismanic Belgian Eden Hazard who jumped ship to Real Madrid in what he described as a dream move. With Frank Lampard at the helm amid a transfer ban, there were doubts on if Lampard and his boys would finish in the top 4. The Englishman came in and put some reliance on youth players like Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount, Fikayo Tomori, James Reece, Billy...

Who will win the Bundesliga vs Ligue 1 UCL semis battle?

The 2019/20 UEFA Champions League has seen a lot of giant-killing in the knockout phases, and I daresay that nobody would have predicted that the likes of Lyon and RB Leipzig would be in the semifinals of the competition. Nobody would have predicted that the last 4 of the competition would comprise only teams from the Bundesliga and Ligue 1. Imagine the likes of Juventus, Barcelona, Manchester City, and Atletico Madrid being eliminated from the competition. Let's not mention how Barcelona were mercilessly pummeled, bloodied, and bled 8:2. Even if someone saw a thrashing, nobody would have fathomed that high a scoreline. Funny enough, if more time had been added, more goals would have been added by Bayern who were very ruthless. READ: Tips on how to win more in football betting in ...

Chelsea can now begin official moves for Kai Havertz

Chelsea have been heavily linked with a move for Bayern Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz after completing deals for the likes of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech ahead of the 2020/21 season. There has been no headway thus far but it is believed that a move could be close according to Fabrizio Romano. The deal was on hold due to dispute on transfer fee as well as the player's involvement with Leverkusen for the remainder of the Europa League. This was not the case with Werner who left RB Leipzig after signing for the Blues although they are still in the Champions League. Regardless, Leverkusen insisted that Havertz must finish the season with them.

The Oldies are gradually being phased out for the Newbies

The young managers are beginning to take over from the old guard in most of the elite clubs in Europe. It's safe to say that the prestigious managers are being phased out gradually. The players who made their mark, playing for some of the elite clubs in Europe are assuming the managerial helm at those clubs. It comes as no major surprise going by the precedent that has been set by successful pioneers. The likes of Pep Guardiola and Zinedine Zidane are prime examples. Guardiola replaced Frank Rijkaard at Barcelona years back and built a very formidable Barcelona side that conquered Europe and world club football for years before he departed from the club.  This was a major feat for a rookie manager and his achievement with the Barcelona side will reverberate in the world of footbal...
