Matt Jarvis and Wolves may have been relegated from the Premier League, but that doesn’t mean the 25 year-old should be playing in the Championship next term. While the Molineaux men are on their way down, here are five reasons why your team should want Matt Jarvis to join them in the Premier League.
Robin van Persie is in the midst of his best Premier League season for Arsenal with 27 goals to his name. However, with only one strike in his last six matches, I’ve been reading articles that believe the Dutchman is showing the signs of fatigue. Robin van Persie has played in his highest number of matches in a Premier League season this campaign, so is there some truth to these views?
Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero combined for five of Man City’s goals in destroying Norwich at the weekend. The Argentinean duo were unstoppable, as Man City rolled back the weeks to look like the side that had thumped eleven past Tottenham and Man Utd away from home earlier in the season. Insight takes a look at how they did it.
Chelsea go in to their Champions League Semi-Final with Barcelona as the overwhelming underdogs. No one expects them to win, barely anyone except their own fans think they can win, but could they just pull off one of the upsets of the competition?
Clint Dempsey is enjoying his best season in the Premier League for Fulham with sixteen goals so far. Injuries to Pavel Pogrebnyak and Andrew Johnson have seen the American start up front in the Cottagers’ last two matches and he hasn’t disappointed. So should Clint Dempsey be starting up front for Fulham on a regular basis?
Grant Holt has had an exceptional first season in the Premier League for Norwich. Thirteen goals have seen the Canaries front-man sat as the second highest scoring Englishman behind Wayne Rooney. With Euro 2012 approaching this summer, should Grant Holt be considered for England?
With the injury-prone Louis Saha gone to Tottenham and the usually reliable Tim Cahill failing to find form this season, Everton have struggled to find goals. In fact, only Liverpool have scored fewer than David Moyes’ men in the top ten teams in the Premier League this term. So, is Nikica Jelavic the answer to Everton’s goal-drought this season?
Nicolas Gaitan is a dangerous player for Benfica and 1-0 is the most dangerous lead in football. Whilst Chelsea put on a fantastic performance to become the first team to win at the Estadio da Luz in this season’s Champions League, they must guard against any kind of complacency thinking that this tie is sewn up.
Emmanuel Adebayor had only netted twice in the Premier League in 2012 for Spurs. That all changed Sunday against Swansea, as his hard work paid off with two goals and Spurs earning three points to stop their five-game league winless skid. So, just what did Emmanuel Adebayor do to get back on the goal trail?
Steve Bruce favoured a style of play that attacked down the right, but Martin O’Neill has shifted that focus to the left. James McClean is his weapon of choice to instigate attacks and the Mackems have seen an upturn in results since O’Neill took over. So, just how has James McClean changed the focus of the Sunderland attack?
