England huge favourites to seal qualification against Panama

England’s campaign in Russia is only one game old, and the Three Lions have already improved on their performance in Brazil. The Three Lions found themselves along with Uruguay, Italy and Costa Rica in their group four years ago and could manage only one point from their three games. Obviously, Gareth Southgate’s men have been rewarded with a much easier group this time, and it’s too early to judge their title changes. However, their win over Tunisia has almost ensured their place in the last-16, and there is a new-found…

Five reasons to love this England team

It’s been easy to feel fatigued following England in recent years. Whether it’s the slightly cheesy ‘car flags and bunting’ that surrounds a tournament or the predictably poor performances in big games, many fans have fallen out of the love with the national team a bit in recent years. Most prefer club to country. So, it’ll be more of the same this time, right? I mean, if I gave you £20 and told you to name the finalist with williamhill.com then it’s unlikely that you’d put your cash on the…

United are currently level on points with Spurs, but they sit in the second spot owing to a better goal difference.

Tottenham will be hoping to claim the first home win of the league season when they host Swansea at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Tottenham will attempt to break their Wembley-hoodoo when they host Burnley at their new home on Sunday. Spurs started the season with a decent 2-0 win at Newcastle, but last weekend, they lost 2-1 to champions Chelsea at Wembley.

Another failure to win at Wembley on Sunday will surely put unnecessary pressure on the title-chasing side this early in the season. Ahead of the game, the visitors find themselves level on points with their…

After outplaying Chelsea and ending their run of 13 successive wins, Mauricio Pocchetino’s Tottenham destroyed West Brom in a 4-0 defeat today. Spurs climbed within striking distance of the league leaders courtesy a blitzkrieg hat-trick from England International Harry Kane.

This stat proves some Premier League star goal scorers are not ‘complete strikers’

If a football player wants to be called a star striker, he has to be able to score at any time, anywhere and against any opposition. One way to test this is how many goals a forward has scored at home and away. Some Premier League top scorers can be branded as ‘complete strikers’, as they balance their goals, while others only work their magic primarily in one place. It’s striking the three leading top scorers in the Premier League are all balanced once. Leicester’s Jamie Vardy has scored 16 goals in total,…
