English Premier League Top 4 Preview and Predictions

English Premier League Top 4 Betting Preview and Prediction

This English Premier League campaign has been weird so far, as many of the big guns have massively underperformed. Tottenham and Arsenal were so bad that they had to change their managers before the start of 2020, while Chelsea and Manchester United have been just slightly better. That has made the battle for the top 4 wide open and we have no clue who’s going to finish there at the end. Ok, that’s technically not true since Liverpool, Man City, and Leicester look certain. What I mean is that the…

Is Solskjaer Overplaying Bruno Fernandes Already?

Bruno Fernandes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester United

Manchester United had to go through a long negotiation process and pay a little fortune to get Bruno Fernandes from Sporting. The first impression is that the saga was totally worth it, as the midfielder has been a standout performer for the Red Devils recently. He scored several goals in different competitions and instantly became a leader on the pitch in the absence of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford. It all looks good, but I have the feeling that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is starting to rely too much on Fernandes…

Bruno Fernandes Paul Pogba Manchester United

Everybody is talking about Bruno Fernandes after his bright start at Manchester United. The Portuguese midfielder looks ready to play at the top level and brings a lot to the table. He scored his first goal for the Red Devils against Watford and looked like the real deal. Fernandes won his third Man of the Match award and the supporters love his contributions on the pitch. Most of them can’t wait to see him play alongside Paul Pogba which made me think if the Portuguese has come to form a…

Four Potential Disasters for Manchester City after the UEFA Ban

Pep Guardiola and Manchester United Logo

This season has been disappointing for Manchester City already, but the ban received from UEFA is something else. The club will miss two years of European football and pay some solid fines for breaching the Financial Fair Play rules. To be honest, we all knew that the team is spending ridiculous amounts of money and I don’t think too many people are shocked by the decision. Or at least the shock probably comes from the fact that UEFA is doing something about it, not the violations per se. Whether other…

Manchester City, Manchester United and Carabao Cup

The second leg of the Carabao Cup semifinal between Manchester City and Manchester United will take place tonight at the Etihad stadium. The home side has a healthy advantage of 3:1 and the Red Devils looked doomed. And yet, there’s no away goals rule in the League Cup, so any victory by two goals would be enough to force an extra-time. In this betting preview, I will analyse the chances of both sides based on the odds and share my best betting pick. Manchester City I expected to see some…

Why Solskjaer’s Services Are no Longer Needed by Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester United

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer arrived as the interim manager of Manchester United, the expectations were that he will be gone in the summer. The main issue with his predecessor Jose Mourinho was the atmosphere at the club. The Norwegian icon seemed like the perfect man for the job. He instantly lifted the players and broke several records in his first couple of months. Perhaps, he was too good for the task at hand, from the club’s perspective. The excellent performance and the results convinced the fans and many legends of…

Three Transfers That Are Bound to Happen in January

Olivier Giroud, Christian Eriksen, Bruno Fernandes

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. Christian Eriksen to Inter Milan Many expected to see Eriksen sold last summer because the Danish playmaker didn’t sign a new contract with the Spurs.

Pep Guardiola and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester City vs Manchester United

Manchester City is almost certainly through to the Carabao Cup final after a comprehensive 3-1 victory against Manchester United. There’s the return leg, of course, but it seems like the Blue side of the city is way ahead right now. It was sweet revenge after the reigning champions lost against the Red Devils in the English Premier League less than a month ago. Pep Guardiola and his men were outplayed back then, which begs the question of what was different this time around? How did the tide change so dramatically…

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed his disappointment by sharing that Pogba will need to undergo a surgery and will be out for at least several more weeks. The star’s future was uncertain even before that and it seems even more complicated. There were rumors that he will leave Manchester United in January but doesn’t seem likely right now.

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. And yet, a home draw against Everton and a heavy defeat against last-placed Watford show that’s not the case. 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…

Paul Pogba hasn’t played for Manchester United since the end of September and the signs are not good. An ankle injury was the reason why the Frenchman has been out but it’s been far too long.

Have Manchester United learned from their mistakes of last summer?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Last summer transfer window was quite a difficult one for Manchester United. The Red Devils failed to acquire most of their top targets, which ultimately proved to be a fatal blow for now-former manager Jose Mourinho. In sharp contrast this summer, United have been ruthless in market and they haven’t hesitated in paying over-the-top money to acquire their targets. United have already paid in the region of £50m to sign Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace, and if the latest reports are to be believed, United are set to sign Harry…

According to Bilel Ghazi of L’Equipe, the Parisian club are open to sell their €222 signing this summer if they receive a suitable offer.

Manchester United chase defenders with Premier League experience

One of the top priorities for Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer this summer is to fix up his leaky defence. Last season, not many United defenders manage to make a mark, and it appears that the club has decided to target defenders with Premier League experience this summer. Firstly, United have been strongly linked with Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Have Real Madrid found a solution for Gareth Bale?

Gareth Bale has become a problematic figure at Real Madrid this summer. Following a turbulent season, the Welshman has fallen out of favour with fans, and he also doesn’t figure in the plans of head-coach Zinedine Zidane. It is apparent that the La Liga giants want to offload the 29-year-old, who is currently on £350,000 wages after tax. However, Los Blancos might find it difficult to sell Bale on a permanent deal this summer. Premier League sides like Manchester United and Tottenham have refrained from registering their interest in the…
