I’ve got a 3000 word Tactics Tuesday post going up in a few hours, which is why the Hoddle is delayed today. Sorry about that. Hopefully the tactics post makes it worth the delay. :)

Do read this StatsBomb post on Leicester’s problems this year. The note on Mahrez and Vardy’s partnership is especially interesting. I hadn’t noticed that as much this year because I’d been distracted by the they-don’t-have-Kante-in-midfield anymore issues, but the Vardy-Mahrez thing is really interesting.

It’s OK to celebrate deflected goals.

I’m hoping to find something more in-depth soon, but for now this is a nice (HAR) little piece on surprise Ligue 1 leaders Nice.
