Have Clambered Back Into The Scrapheap

Since the turn of the century, there has been a shift in tactics in the Premier League. Gone are the days of expansive football played by teams such as Manchester United and Liverpool. These days, teams like Chelsea, Arsenal and PSG reliance on a possession-based game that relies on quick passing and movement from midfielders.

Despite these challenges, all four teams seem to be on the rebound and are looking to regain their status as contenders for league titles and Champions League qualification. Chelsea might be favourites to win next season’s Premier League title but all four teams will be looking to challenge them in order to maintain their place at the top of English football.

The key to their resurgence

The key to their resurgence has been a mixture of innovative coaching, astute recruitment and a squad that is both young and talented.

PSG have brought in Unai Emery as their new head coach, who is known for his work at Sevilla. His main focus will be on restructuring the team’s style of play, which should help them move up the table.

Chelsea also underwent a change in management this season with Maurizio Sarri taking over from Antonio Conte. His focus will be on giving players more freedom to express themselves on the pitch and creating an attacking style of play. This should help the Blues mount a serious challenge for the title.

Paris Saint Germain

Paris Saint Germain (PSG) are one of the most successful clubs in European football, having won 20 trophies since their establishment in 1970. However, they have been on a downward spiral in recent years, with financial problems and rising levels of competition taking their toll. In order to return to their former glory, PSG have had to make some tough decisions – such as selling key players and reducing the team’s budget.

Chelsea were founded in 1905 by Mr William Shepherd Bushnell and Mr Charles Edward Terry – two Americans who wanted to create a team that could challenge Liverpool for superiority in English football. Chelsea went on to become one of England’s most successful clubs, winning 19 major trophies over the years. However, they faced financial difficulties in recent years due to high player wages and expensive transfers.

The Scrapheap of European Football

As the Premier League edges ever closer to the finish line, teams in Europe are starting to take notice. One of those teams is Paris Saint-Germain, who despite being one of the most decorated clubs in France, have been struggling recenty. PSG’s poor form has seen them drop down to sixth place in Ligue 1 and they will be looking to rebound when they take on La Liga side Valencia on Saturday.

Chelsea meanwhile, have been struggling in recent months as well. Antonio Conte’s men lost 3-1 at leaders Manchester City last weekend and sit four points behind league-leaders Liverpool with nine games left. However, Conte has already hinted that he may not stay at Chelsea next season and could be poached by another European club.

Arsenal meanwhile, are still fighting for their top spot in the table but their recent form hasn’t been great either. The Gunners lost 4-2 away at Tottenham Hotspur and could only manage a 1-1 draw against Everton last weekend. Arsene Wenger may soon face a decision on his future after 22 years at Arsenal.

The Scrapheap

PSG had a tumultuous 2016, finishing fourth in Ligue 1 and crashing out of the Champions League at the group stage. Unsurprisingly, they struggled to keep hold of their key players, with Neymar departing for Barcelona and Kylian Mbappe signing for Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco.

Arsenal also endured a disappointing 2016-17 season after failing to make it past the Europa League semi-finals. Arsene Wenger was sacked by Arsenal Board members on 22 October 2017 after 22 years at the club. Unai Emery was appointed as manager on 16 May 2018 and his arrival has coincided with an upturn in form for Arsenal, who are currently fifth in the Premier League table.


Arsenal, Chelsea and PSG have all been successful in bouncing back from difficult periods in recent years. The trio of clubs have all had to deal with financial issues in recent seasons, but they’ve all managed to turn their fortunes around.

Arsenal were struggling when Arsene Wenger left the club in 2014, but they appointed Unai Emery and signed some excellent players. They finished fourth last season and will be looking to challenge for the title this year.

Chelsea also underwent a lot of change during the Mourinho era, but they appointed Antonio Conte and slowly started to rebuild their team. They finished third last season and will be looking to improve on that this year.

PSG also went through a tough period after winning the Champions League twice in a row. They appointed former Barcelona manager Thomas Tuchel and quickly rebuilt their team. PSG ended the season as champions and are expected to challenge for titles again this year.
