The Technical Area

  1. After quickly concluding a deal to bring Pedro to Stamford Bridge last week, following reported interest from Manchester United throughout the summer, Jose Mourinho immediately handed the Spaniard a starting role for the champions’ trip to West Brom.

  2. Just a couple of matches into the new season, Ross Barkley has already equalled last term’s two-goal haul after finding the net against Watford and Southampton. With an assist also thrown in, the Everton playmaker sits third amongst midfielders in Fantasy Premier League (FPL) with 20 points accrued.

  3. Last night’s 3-2 win over Spurs extended Liverpool’s unbeaten league run to nine matches as the Reds moved to just three points off the top four in the Premier League. Fundamental to that form has been the shift to a 3-4-2-1 formation, which has transformed their season after a patchy first few months of the […]

Handed a role at the tip of West Ham’s midfield diamond in the previous three matches, Downing had served up a […]

  6. After making his debut in the midweek cup win over Arsenal, Saido Mane retained his place in the Saints’ first XI for the weekend clash against QPR. With the Senegal wide man starting on the left of a 4-3-3, Dusan Tadic switched flanks to accommodate the new boy and both players earned an assist apiece […]

  7. A change of tactics from Arsene Wenger helped Arsenal sweep aside Villa last weekend and recover from a midweek humbling at Dortmund. The Gunners boss benched Alexis Sanchez and switched from his new 4-1-4-1 formation to last year’s 4-2-3-1 system, which crucially allowed Mesut Ozil to move to the role in “the hole” behind Danny […]

“All players will blank a few times during the season. When almost all do it in the same Gameweek, it is tough to take, but that's just the dark side of probability.”
