Watched by thousands, the Premier League matches are one of the most popular soccer tournaments to view across the globe and loved by many. This is mainly down to the success of the players and the rivalry and competitiveness between the clubs when they take to the pitch. And despite this, they still show great sportsmanship when playing with other teams throughout the games.
At the moment we are only two weeks into the games, and we are already glued to our screens on the edge of our seats. Within this article we are going to review the current performance of all teams and players along with taking a brief look how the newly promoting clubs are coping in the top flight league.
Impressive Match Results
Our of the number of games played so far there are a few that stand out the most when it comes to how the scores ended up. The first one was seen on the 11th August where Chelsea beat Huddersfield with a fantastic effort of 3-0. And we can also see

Having spent nearly £140 million acquiring new players in the summer, Everton went into the new season full of optimism, and even had one eye on maybe challenging for a coveted top four spot.
Recording two wins from their eight Premier League games certainly wasn't the start they'd hoped for, as the Toffees are currently sitting just three points above the relegation zone. Moreover, their horror form has disappointingly carried over into their Europa League adventure, where they currently occupy last spot in a tough group featuring Atalanta, Lyon and Apollon Limassol.
A combination of reasons as to why they've began so poorly, from Ronald Koeman's decision making, to their new signings so far struggling to adjust and the departure of star striker Romelu Lukaka, can all

In his 25 minute cameo appearance on his Everton debut on Saturday, Morgan Schneiderlin racked up more Premier League game time than he had been afforded in the last six months at Old Trafford.
The 27-year-old Frenchman joined the Toffees from Manchester United last week in a deal worth £20 million - potentially rising to £24 million if conditional bonuses are triggered - putting an end to a forgettable 18 months with the 20-time champions.
The move to Merseyside represents a new beginning for Schneiderlin, a chance to reignite a once promising career which had stagnated, treading water at both club and international level.
His £25 million move to United in the summer of 2015 was supposed to mark his arrival at the summit of English football. The Red Devils were ha

Having made a solid start to the season, which saw him score in Everton's Premier League opener against Tottenham and supply an assist against West Bromwich Albion, Ross Barkley then suffered a disappointing dip in form.
Being taken off at halftime by Ronald Koeman in the Toffees' win over Sunderland summed up his manager's frustration with his star pupil. "There was a reason to change Ross at half-time because he did not play well, he lost many balls and players of that quality can't lose those kinds of balls," Koeman moaned.
"Ross needs to be the key player between defenders and strikers. You look at his qualities and his position is to create. In all aspects he needs to improve but he is still a young player, no question."
The Dutchman then went onto

Everton's astute signing of Idrissa Gueye from Aston Villa for just £7.1 million, having activated his release clause, has undoubtedly been one of the signings of the season so far.
Although Aston Villa suffered the indignity of relegation, Gueye emerged as one of the Claret and Blue Army's shining lights in their season of darkness, with his reputation well and truly in tact. Joining Everton certainly served as a brilliant reward for all his tireless, battling work for Villa.
By the numbers, the former Lille man was exceptional last term. He successfully completed 4.1 tackles per game and a vital four interceptions pg, which remarkably placed him second in the league behind only N'Golo Kante in both metrics (as per Whoscored). Moreover, the fact he won over 53% of his aerial duels, completed 1869 passes at an impressive 85.6% completion rate and ran over 10kms a game suitably

Upon his appointment as Everton manager in the summer of 2013, Roberto MartÃnez brought hope of a new era at Goodison Park. An era of free-flowing, attacking football. David Moyes had departed to join Manchester United, and MartÃnez was ready to throw out his predecessor's defence-first manual, in favour of expression and entertainment.
And maybe even some silverware. MartÃnez had, after all, guided relegated Wigan Athletic to an unlikely FA Cup triumph the previous season. Could an end to the Toffees' trophy drought be on the horizon?
Not quite. Having finished fifth in the Premier League on an impressive 72 points after his first season in charge, Everton regressed to eleventh last term, accumulating only 47 points. This season has been no better, and the powers that be have decided to part ways with the Spanish tactician.
Everton fans had grown progressively frustrated with their

To say that it's been an odd year in the FA Cup would be an understatement. Last year, after heavyweight clubs like Manchester City, Chelsea, and Tottenham Hotspur were all eliminated in the round of 32, pundits labeled the tournament as one of the most wide-open in FA Cup history. Still, despite all of the ado about underdogs and upsets, Arsenal still defended their 2013/14 title to clinch the FA Cup trophy for the 12th time.
The 2015/16 FA Cup has taken almost the direct opposite narrative. Early rounds made it look as if the Premier League's top clubs would dominate the tournament. Chelsea, Manchester United, and Arsenal all made it to the quarterfinals, with none of them pitted against one another. It was almost an unspoken agreement that all three clubs would make it to the semi-finals. As it turned out, only one of them did.

In an ideal world, the vote for the PFA Player of the Year would not take place until after the denouement of the season, when the full fixture list has been fulfilled and the team honours handed out. The current arrangement means ballots have probably already been completed, however: in recent years, players have had to submit their votes by mid-March, when there is usually around a quarter of the campaign remaining.
Given that the voting is likely to have already taken place, then, here are the likely contenders for the 2015/16 PFA Player of the Year crown:
Riyad Mahrez, Leicester City
With 16 strikes and 11 assists to his name, Mahrez has been directly involved in more goals than anyone else in the Premier League. The Algeria international is Leicester's primary creative force, with his direct dribbling, fine footwork and much-improved end product causing problems for almost every defender
Has there ever been a Premier League season as tumultuous and unpredictable as this one? Starting with Chelsea's complete and utter collapse and continuing with surprisingly limp campaigns from both Liverpool and Manchester United, the 2015/16 English Premier League has been anything but a foregone conclusion. In fact, 25 weeks into the competition (and with only 13 games to go until the end of the season), the EPL title is still anyone's game.
Leicester City: Your New Frontrunners?
Leicester City, previously part of the Premier League's so-called "middle class," have been one of the major game-changers this season. Spurred forward by a record-breaking scoring run from Jamie Vardy, the Foxes have been hanging around
