It was only in February 2013 that the Swans enjoyed the greatest day in their history after they won the Capital One Cup at the Wembley. Former Denmark international, Michael Laudrup was the hero who had taken the South Wales club to achieve this feat.

After a poor run of form left the Swans two points above the premier league relegation zone, the club’s management decided to axe the former Barcelona and Denmark star in February 2014 saying the atmosphere around the club has become toxic, but Michael Laudrup has stressed his departure has nothing to do with any misconduct.

From being the perfect depiction of your big bad defensive roadblock mainly skilled in stopping opponents in their tracks to a veteran deemed surplus to requirement in a struggling Rangers FC squad, it is safe to say Switzerland defender Philippe Senderos failed to live up to his potential.

The 32-yeaar old started his career at Swiss side Servette before being picked up by Arsenal. After getting the crowd excited with his no-nonsense approach to protecting his goalie, frequent sloppiness which later racked up to a litany of errors made him earmarked as unreliable.

Antonio Conte has backed striker Diego Costa to come good when he comes against his Premier league rival Romelu Lukaku in the weekend's game against Everton.

The Spanish striker went through a goalscoring drought which saw him fail to score in five consecutive league games.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino fears that striker Harry Kane could be set for a similar spell on the sidelines, just as he did in the first half of the campaign.

The club sorely missed the presence of the England international back then. The inability for his replacement Vincent Janssen to come up with the goals meant that Tottenham went through a barren run of form during that period. There is a danger of the same repeating, as Kane had to go off the game against Millwall with what appeared to be a serious injury. He was seen leaving the stadium – after the 6-0 victory – in crutches.

Leicester City have issued a statement backing manager Claudio Ranieri with unwavering support.

After winning the league title last season in quite incredible fashion, the club are back near the bottom of the table. Even though Lester did expect a tough campaign after having won the title, Ranieri would not have imagined a relegation battle. At the start of the campaign, the Italian focused heavily on the Champions League and this led to a dip in the league form – even though the club did qualify for the knockout stages of the European competition.
