This weekend we’re back to a full complement of Premier League fixtures as there is no FA Cup action to contend with, and it could be a pivotal weekend for both ends of the table as Manchester City would have had a tricky fixture away to Europe-chasing wounded animals Everton earlier in the day in

This weekend’s Premier League fixture list has been almost halved as a result of running concurrently with the FA Cup quarter-finals, but there are still truffles to be found in the mud that is a difficult top-flight coupon comprising of relegation six-pointers, mid-table battles and… Liverpool vs. Tottenham where the North Londoners look great value

The biggest game of the Premier League weekend by far takes place at White Hart Lane where Champions League qualification-chasing Tottenham and Arsenal do battle in an eagerly-anticipated North London derby which will surely have massive ramifications for both teams not only this season but the next. So where else to start today’s preview but

Unsung heroes are players who never really get what they deserve from praise to awards. Some of them actually play a fundamental role in a side, but their work is never recognised. One of these players is Mauro Tassotti. Many football fans around won’t recognise the name; others will remember him for his vicious elbow

The weekend begins at White Hart Lane where a rejuvenated Newcastle aim to maintain their recent revival against a Tottenham side aiming to usurp Chelsea into third place in the Premier League, at least for a few hours. Gareth Bale has been in talismanic form for club and country in the last few weeks, and in guiding

After a romantic weekend away in the FA Cup, the bread and luxury butter that is the Premier League is a back with a full weekend programme and the first port of call for a viewing perspective is Loftus Road when Norwich City rock up for the lunchtime fixture at QPR, presumably checking before they

Another weekend in the Premier League, another huge Sunday as four of the top six lock horns over the course of what may be a pivotal few hours in the race for the title and Champions League qualification places. The team currently placed fifth, Everton, make their move on Monday when they will be the

Its here. The first Premier League Super Sunday of 2013, and Sundays do not get much more super than the fixtures that await us on this chilly Sunday 13th. The ascendancy of the noveau riches may have altered the order of power at the top end of English domestic football on a permanent basis, but for this soppy writer

And a happy new year to you, too. Weary and bleary-eyed (and that’s just the players) we stumble into the fourth full Premier League matchday in the space of just ten days, and the first of 2013. Three points will be crucial in the eyes of many managers seeing as the Prem ratrace gets put

On Boxing Day, Stoke City produced one of the performances of not just that day, but in my opinion the entire Premier League season, in order to come back from going behind after the best part of 90 seconds to defeat Liverpool 3-1 at a raucous Britannia Stadium. The Potters belied their somewhat harsh attribution as a

Looking for a brilliant bargain in the bank holiday sales? Then look no further than a little investment on Swansea to pick up all three points from the Madjeski Stadium against an increasingly doomed Reading side, reeling from seven Premier League defeats in a row, during which the Royals have conceded 18 goals. Whilst Brian McDermott and

Right, we all have shopping to do, the weather’s atrocious, and you’re probably still recovering from that excuse of a ‘work Christmas party’, so let’s make this short, snappy and concise. Kind of. Congratulations to QPR for deciding last weekend to win a game the one week where I dont back them to win a

I have always maintained belief in my pre-season prediction of Manchester United to win the Premier League, and the Red Devils took a sizable step towards regaining the top-flight crown from their despised neighbours with a dramatic last-minute victory at the Etihad last weekend, courtesy of a sublime deflected Robin van Persie free-kick. It was the third

It would be fair to say there was plenty of controversy at Cardiff last season, after the Bluebirds opted to switch their famous blue shirts for a red strip due to commercial reasons. Such a move came off the back of a playoff defeat although following large-scale investment, most supporters are relatively happy with the
