The Technical Area

  1. There’s no doubt Roberto Martinez is a big fan of Ross Barkley. Deprived of the youngster’s services for the first seven Gameweeks of the season, the Toffees boss has thrust him straight back into league action, with three starts and a sub appearance in the subsequent four league fixtures.

  2. The fall-out from Aaron Ramsey’s hamstring injury absence persuaded over 50,000 Fantasy Premier League (FPL) managers to snap up Stewart Downing after a change of position looked to have transformed the former Liverpool man. Handed a role at the tip of West Ham’s midfield diamond in the previous three matches, Downing had served up a […]

  3. 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 […]

  4. 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 […]

  5. A 4-0 thrashing of QPR helped Man United to their first win of the season under Louis van Gaal last weekend. After failing to find a way past Burnley in their previous league fixture, the Red Devils ran riot against the hapless R’s, with a trio of midfielders, Angel di Maria, Juan Mata and Ander […]

  6. All eyes were on White Hart Lane last Sunday as Liverpool rolled up to face Tottenham with new boy Mario Balotelli on board for the first time. After tasting defeat at City in their previous match, Brendan Rodgers’ side returned to form in style, sweeping aside their previously unbeaten hosts with a 3-0 win which […]

  7. Reduced to 10 men before the half-hour mark of their opening league match under Mauricio Pochettino, Tottenham’s attacking assets were given little chance to shine as they ground out a gritty 1-0 win at West Ham. Last weekend, however, the north London club faced QPR in the first home fixture of the Argentine’s tenure and turned […]
