My Premier League predictions: 2014-15

Can Manchester City retain their title?

Welcome to my annual predictions post. This is where I will tell you where I think each Premier League team will finish, and for the first time I will give a paragraph with my thoughts on each team.

While last time pre-season was about new managers, this time it is the players who have come to the league and those that have left.

The league’s top scorer, Luis Suarez, has left Liverpool to go to Spanish giants Barcelona for £75 million. Star players such as Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal, Diego Costa for Chelsea and Luke Shaw to Manchester United are just some of the star names playing for their teams this season.

Here is my guide to the Premier League 2014. Continue reading “My Premier League predictions: 2014-15”

Europa League: Swansea join Spurs in next round

Michael Laudrup’s Swansea progressed despite losing.

Swansea joined Tottenham in the next round of the Europa League despite losing 1-0 to St. Gallen.

Playing in bad fog, Swansea needed a draw against the Swiss side to secure qualification but their former points total was enough to see them through.

Defoe breaks record as Spurs win

Jemaine Defoe broke Tottenham Hotspurs all-time European goal scoring record as he helped his team progress in the Europa League.

They beat Moldovan side Sheriff Tiraspol 2-1. Defoe scored one. That means he has scored 23 goals in European competition, beating Martin Chivers’ 22.

Swansea had a sense of déjà vu as they were pegged back by a late goal by Kuban Krasnador.

Wigan played Russian side Rubin Kazan, losing 1-0.

Cardiff win South Wales derby

Steven Caulker’s goal was enough to get Cardiff a win over bitter rivals Swansea in the first ever South Wales derby in the Premier League at the Cardiff City Stadium.

Swansea had good spells of possession in the first half, but Caulker grabbed a header soon after the hour-mark to seal a win for the Bluebirds. Later in the game, Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm was sent off for tripping Frazier Campbell late in the game and right-back Angel Rangel had to go between the sticks for the closing minutes.

In the other Premier League game that day, both sides failed to move up the table quickly as Tottenham and Everton played out a 0-0 draw at Goodison Park.
