Many football fans were downright dumbfounded with Charlie Adam’s outstanding 65 yards long strike that got Courtois beaten last weekend. It would be unreal if you aren’t excited with that goal of the season contender. Let’s turn back the clock to before the goal went in. The former Liverpool midfielder didn’t make it into the scoring sheet since the end of October 2014, bagging the winner against Swansea City. Since then his playing minutes went into a snake and ladder spectrum. This Saturday, the Potters travel to Upton Park to face a tripping West Ham United, clearly Adrian will never leave his penalty box to ensure no dejavu from Adam.
The young kid had the stage set to prove his value against Arsenal, a team that is monitoring his contract situation yet he steered his performance into the ground. The England winger had two clear-cut chances to aid his side but failed miserably. He has been hauling the headlines with a move away from Anfield which is somewhat distracting his mind hence the gloomy results are hitting the pitch, parallel to what’s happening at Old Trafford with Angel Di Maria. Nonetheless, the 20-year old has perilous pace and easily escapes challenges, a big threat from defenders if he is in the penalty box. After back-to-back terrifying matchups, Liverpool have some breathing space when they welcome the lopsided Newcastle United at home, where Sterling is expected to shove away his sophomoric off the pitch saga and focus on firing in goals.
The Spanish international seems to be bossing the middle of the park with superb passing vision and ability to find the back of the net with simplicity. He scored two sublime goals against Aston Villa, both picturing his style of play, he slides the ball with astute accuracy. Herrera was under heavy hindsight by Louis Van Gaal and finally is given the nod, being a regular starter for the Red Devils lately. His commanding presence in midfield got Wayne Rooney enjoying life at the peak of offense, bagging in goals constantly. Manchester United look more balanced without British-record signing Angel Di Maria, thanks to the linkup play between Herrera as well as Juan Mata, another player who has been shining with glorious performances recently. This weekend, it’s the Manchester Derby where the 25-year old will be up against the low-spirited Citizens who sit a single point below them. Seems to be the finest capture by the Red Devils in the recent transfer windows, he would be fruitful for your dream team.
