Solskjaer's arrival at Man United has led to more goals by in-form forwards

The ESPN FC crew examine Paul Pogba's improved performances at Manchester United with the departure of Jose Mourinho.
ESPN's Shaka Hislop says David de Gea's confidence in net has a huge psychological effect on strikers ability to score on the Manchester United keeper.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley breaks down the key factors that guided Manchester United to a statement victory over top-four rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester United are not just winning games, they are doing so by scoring freely; the team that netted just 11 times in seven games before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as manager has scored 17 goals in the six played since then.

But while once shot-shy forwards have been praised -- most often by their new boss -- issues remain. Poor form saw Romelu Lukaku lose his place in the team; injuries mean Alexis Sanchez has played only 27 minutes of the five league games on Solskjaer's watch;...

Premier League will lose its most unique player when Mousa Dembele leaves Tottenham

Dembele's skills as a disruptive, creative and aggressive central midfielder probably won't be found again.
Dembele's skills as a disruptive, creative and aggressive central midfielder probably won't be found in the same player again.

Promising young footballers are regularly compared to a current or former great and it's usually based upon a couple of attributes: the new Thierry Henry, the new Lionel Messi, the new Ronaldo. They rarely live up to the billing, but it's a useful shortcut for describing their style. It's difficult, though, to imagine anyone being an accurate "new Mousa Dembele" -- not because the Belgian was so magnificent that no one could possibly come close, but because Dembele is unlike anyone else before...

Emery says Arsenal can sign only loan players ... and the reason should worry fans

Last week, Arsenal boss Unai Emery said something surprising: "We cannot sign players where we have to make a payment ... we can only make loan signings." That's not what you'd expect to hear from a club that is six points away from fourth place and in danger of finishing outside the Champions League spots for the third successive season after 19 consecutive years of playing in the world's biggest club competition.

Nor is that what you'd expect from a club that ranked sixth in the most recent Deloitte...

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri says he needs to have cover for Jorginho after Cesc Fabregas left the club to join Monaco.

Cesc Fabregas may no longer be a Chelsea player, but he has aimed a parting shot to former teammate Alvaro Morata that may have kicked off 2019's first social media craze.

If you are one of the many people who are trying to cut meat and dairy out of your diet for "Veganuary," or just bristle at the sight of food being wasted, best look away now.

At some point during a standard day at training, Morata obviously took Fabregas aside and told him about his theory that an egg won't break if it lands...

Craig Burley says Arsenal's recent poor form was always expected, and the club have to respect Unai Emery's treatment of Mesut Ozil.

Petr Cech has announced that he intends to retire at the end of the season, calling time on his 20-year professional career.

The Arsenal goalkeeper, who turns 37 in May, confirmed his decision with a succinct statement posted on Twitter.

An undisputed Premier League legend of what already feels like a bit of a bygone era, Cech will bow out with records aplenty as well as four league titles, five FA Cups, a Champions League and a Europa League.

Here are but a few of the reasons we'll miss having...
