Manchester City continue their pursuit of Kyle Walker

The Spaniard has already allowed the likes of Gael Clichy, Pablo Zabaleta and Bacary Sagna to leave the club this summer, and Aleksandar Kolarov is also entering the final year of his deal. At the moment, City severely lack in bodies in full-back positions. The Citizens are supposedly in advance talks for Juventus full-back Dani…

Will Tottenham be able to catch run-away leaders Chelsea?

Antonio Conte has been in this position before. He was part of the Juventus team back in 2000 that were nine points ahead of Lazio, who were then managed by Sven-Goran Eriksson, with just eight games to go, before a dramatic collapse in the final weeks saw the Biancocelesti pip them to the Scudetto by a single point. Fast forward to the present day, and the same man finds himself in an almost identical position in charge of Chelsea, with the only difference being that they only hold a seven-point…

Will Chelsea fall at the last hurdle?

  Liverpool did it in 2014, Arsenal did it in 2008 and Newcastle United did it spectacularly in 1996. Abrupt and unexpected capitulations are not a rare occurrence in the Premier League, and as unstoppable as Chelsea might have looked in the first half of this season, the real test – the test of champions – comes later. As we’ve seen so many times before, January can be a cruel, cold month for the league leaders.

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.
