    Chelsea only play counter-attacking football against the big teams. They don't really have a style, Mou seems to change it depending on the game.

    Pressing;Soton, Everton, Swansea
    Attacking: City, Liverpool, Spurs
    Possession: Arsenal
    Counter: Palace, Stoke, Villa, Sunderland
    Negative: Chelsea, WHU


    The rest of division are less easily identified, cant really describe what Utd played last season for instance but normally Utd under Fergie played standard attacking football with focus on wing play.

    Teams like WBA, Newcastle are pragmatic and change from week to week.

    Chelsea scored more goals than arsenal though. Shouldn't arsenal be in negative

    City are the best possession team and attacking team so they can be both

    Holland have scored more than Coloumbia at this world cup, but which one was set up to attack and which to play on the counter? Goals aren't the entire story.

    Anyone who watched Arsenal at home vs Bayern, Napoli or BVB and compared with say Chelsea at home vs A.Madrid or PSG in the CL will be in no doubt over the philosophy of the 2 teams for example. Chelsea went to Old Trafford and got the draw they craved, Arsenal went for the win. Arsenal went to the Ethihad and played out a 6-3, Chelsea played for a clean sheet and everything else was a bonus. Use your eyes.

    How about arsenal parking the bus vs bayern, dortmund, Napoli away, spurs,

    Or does that not fit your narrative?

    Netherlands are set up to counter the same way chelsea do in big games. Bias again I see

    Arsenal park the bus against good teams. Pass it about a bit then lose the ball but it doesn't matter because they park the bus. Eventually the other team makes a mistake and someone will knick a scabby goal.

    Chelsea don't have a style of play. It's just chuck as much money as possible onto the pitch and hope they can figure things out on their own. I'd love to see Mourinho manage Preston, he'd get sacked after a month.

    Liverpool and City play pretty nice football. Although losing Bitez is going to hit them hard next season. I hope Sturridge steps up.

    Spurs have been awful for the last couple of seasons. But I reckon they're going to dominate this season with Pochettino. His training methods and ball retention, attacking style of play worked wonder for Southampton. Spurs have a very good squad so I reckon they'll finish top 3.

    United had a blip last season. That was it. Whether it was Moyes or the players, I don't know. But LVG should sort them out. They probably won't finish top. But maybe 2nd.

    No idea who they are, but Leicester City are pretty much impossible to fit under any of those umbrellas. Last season we were relentlessly attacking, but played a close range passing game (fewer long balls than any other team in the division), and with the sheer pace we had going forward (Vardy is blistering, and frankly Lloyd Dyer should have been an Olympic sprinter) we took advantage of teams on the counter quite a bit.

    Chelsea are more pragmatic than anything.

    Spurs aren't attacking football either, they're defensive possession most of the time.

    United played run and cross mixed with defensive possession.

    How can you say Mourinho would be sacked after a month? He is clearly a pragmatic and resourceful coach, who employs a successful reactive style of management which means that his team is often better set up than the opposition. Wenger may be a good manager, but his tactics are sometimes too idealistic; just look at the 6-0 defeat to Chelsea, the gulf in class between the two clubs is not that great on paper, it was mainly down to his tactics.

    Newcastle can play some great fast counter attacking football, but it wasn't seen in the second half of last season post-Cabaye. In this time, the play was stunted and slow, no movement, no danger, no innovative thinking, causing them to win just 4 games out of 15 and slump into 10th place.

    With the addition of Cabella, De Jong, Riviere and Janmaat, it should return to the way it was.

    Holland were set up to counter against Australia and against Costa Rica, not just in big games...

    No they weren't? Australia game was fairly end to end and they completely dominated possession vs Costa Rica
