The January transfer window is full of speculations and some of them are completely made up. Others, though, are likely to go through and this post is dedicated to three moves that seem bound to happen by the end of the month.

Jose Mourinho and the Tottenham Hotspur Logo

The appointment of Jose Mourinho as a Spurs manager was unexpected and brought plenty of questions. Many thought that the Special One is not a good fit for Tottenham because of his previous experience. One of the biggest concerns was related to his style. Mourinho is known for his negative approach to big games. For a while, the Spurs supporters forgot that, as the team was relying mostly on its attack in the first couple of games after his arrival. There was a change in the style of the team…

Five Games That Stand Between Liverpool and an Unbeaten Season

Jose Mourinho, Mikel Arteta, Jurgen Klopp and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

There’s only one team in the modern history of English football that has gone through a whole Premier League season without losing a single game. You probably know that’s Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal of 2003-04. We thought we would never see such a feat again but we might witness history once again just 16 years later. There’s a good chunk of the season left but Liverpool has won 19 of the 20 games played so far, drawing the last one against Manchester United. Under such circumstances, it’s hard not to talk…

Why Harry Kane’s Injury Could Ruin Tottenham’s Season

Harry Kane and Jose Mourinho With Tottenham Fans Behind Them.

It appears that Harry Kane’s hamstring injury is going to keep him off the pitch for a while. We don’t have an exact timetable just yet, but Jose Mourinho announced that the issue is serious this weekend. Since light hamstring injuries usually take up to 3-4 weeks before the players return, we could assume this one should take at least several more. That puts the Special One and his team in a tough position in a season that’s already damaged. Every club would suffer without its skipper and a player…

Can Liverpool Surpass the Record of Arsenal’s Invincibles?

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool Players

Liverpool went unbeaten in the English Premier League for a full year last night, after winning against Sheffield United by 2-0 at home. The last time the Reds tasted defeat came at the start of 2019 and the team hasn’t lost in 37 EPL games since. Inevitably, such a streak begs the question if Liverpool can match or even surpass Arsenal’s record of 49 consecutive games without a defeat. The Gunners even went unbeaten for a full campaign in 2003-2004 under Arsene Wenger, earning the nickname the Invincibles. Jurgen Klopp…

Why Manchester United Can’t Beat Teams from the Bottom of the English Premier League?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester United

After back-to-back wins against Tottenham and Manchester City, we all thought that Manchester United is getting significantly better.

Many would argue that the blunder by David De Gea and the stupid penalty by Wan-Bissaka are the main reasons why the Red Devils lost. Both goals were preventable and you can’t argue against that. However, the main issue seems to lie somewhere else. Manchester United struggled to create enough pressure against one…
