Generic football stadium

The post-Jose Mourinho era at Manchester United is well underway, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer making an unbeaten start to his time in the role of interim manager. The Red Devils failed to win for the first time under the Norwegian on Tuesday night, drawing at home to Burnley.  It was the first time Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku started a game together under Solskjaer. Rashford has assumed the role of United’s first-choice central striker since Mourinho’s departure, and is arguably playing the best football of his career.  That’s reduced Lukaku…

What are the best odds on Michi Batshuayi’s club after the transfer window?

Generic football stadium

It’s been surprising that Michy Batshuayi’s loan spell at Valencia hasn’t gone to plan this season. The Chelsea striker hasn’t had a future at Stamford Bridge for a long time, but he impressed in a temporary spell at Borussia Dortmund last season. Now his career is in limbo once again.  Batshuayi scored seven goals in 10 Bundesliga appearances in the second half of last season, after replacing Pierre-Emerick following the Gabon striker’s move to Arsenal. However, Die Schwarzgelben opted not to make his move permanent, and the Bats Man packed…

Generic football stadium

The case of Callum Hudson-Odoi is a curious one. Chelsea have been waiting for years and years for a product of their youth academy to come through the ranks and become a first team star.

The RB Leipzig attacker has 11 strikes from 17 appearances, a haul only bettered by Luka Jovic and Paco Alcácer who have found the net once more. Werner has attracted the interest of Serie A clubs Milan and Juventus as the Rossoneri desperately search for a solution to their goalscoring woes. Gonzalo Higuain is currently enduring a barren run and it is widely recognised the ex-Napoli hitman is not…

What club will Cesc Fabregas be playing for after the January transfer window?

Generic football stadium

After four and a half years at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea’s FA Cup game against Nottingham Forest on Saturday could be a final appearance in the blue shirt for Cesc Fabregas. The Spanish midfielder’s contract is up at the end of the season, and it seems Chelsea are willing to let him go before it expires.  That would appear to go against the wishes of Blues manager Maurizio Sarri, who’s said that he wants to keep Fabregas until the end of the campaign:  “I want him to stay, I don’t know…

Luke Shaw a shining light in Manchester United’s season so far

The season so far may not have quite gone to plan for Manchester United but it hasn’t been all doom and gloom for them. But there has been one very bright light shining this season, and that has been the form of left-back Luke Shaw, who so far has been fantastic for his club. There is no doubt that Shaw has had a very tough time since joining Manchester United from Southampton back in 2014. He joined them for a fee worth over £30 million but there is no way that United…
