The longest serving player at Premier League Big 6 club

Some surprise names and some surprise tenures! Here are the longest serving players for each Premier League club right now.

Players currently out on loan not included, data according to iSports API.

Arsenal: Emiliano Martinez



The Argentine goalkeeper, currently on international duty for the first time in eight years, has never been closer to the number one slot at Arsenal.

Having made his debut for the club way back in 2012, Martinez has since gone on six different loan spells. Now, at 27, he’s the Gunners’ cup keeper for the season.

Chelsea: Cesar Azpilicueta


Mister Reliable himself. Azpilicueta is a rare long-serving player at Stamford Bridge.

The club captain has won two Premier League titles and two Europa League titles since his arrival from Marseille in 2012.

Liverpool: Jordan Henderson


Signed in the summer of 2011 when Kenny Dalglish was in charge of the club, Henderson came with a big price tag and lofty expectations.

The midfielder has gone on to replace Steven Gerrard as captain and lifted the Champions League trophy in June – not bad!

Manchester City: David Silva


An absolute magician with four Premier League titles to his name.

Now in his final season with the club, Silva is a bonafide legend not just for Manchester City but in Premier League football.

Manchester United: Phil Jones



Yep, Phil Jones, who joined from Blackburn in 2011 and has a contract at Old Trafford until 2023.

Doesn’t that just sum up the malaise at Manchester United?

Tottenham: Danny Rose




Signed by Martin Jol in 2007 – yes, 2007! – Rose had to wait a while to make his mark at Spurs.

He made it, though, and did so in style, scoring a screamer against Arsenal on his debut in 2010. The left-back has been a regular under Mauricio Pochettino.

Olivier Giroud must seize his chance with France given his limited minutes at Chelsea

When Olivier Giroud arrived on Monday to the France national team's headquarters at Clairefontaine, an hour south of Paris, it wouldn't be surprising if he took a deep breath of fresh air.

He was back in familiar territory, a place he knows so well and feels at home.

He was also welcoming a break from his daily routine at Chelsea, which has been rough so far this season. Last weekend, he was not in the Blues' matchday squad in their win at Southampton. Chelsea manager Frank Lampard only wanted one striker on the bench with Tammy Abraham in the starting lineup, going with Michy Batshuayi and leaving Giroud back in London.



That's not to say that Giroud is unhappy at Chelsea. He likes the club, the fans and the vibe in the dressing room, but he also wants to play. He needs to play. And so far, he has not played enough: only three games in the Premier League (one start) for a total of a mere 101 minutes, according to iSports API football data. Add that to his 17 minutes in Champions League group stage play so far, and you get the picture.

France striker Olivier Giroud is struggling for time at Chelsea. If Giroud is to factor for France at the 2020 Euros, he'll need more game time at the club, and as you'd expect, he is ready to fight for it. He had a discussion with Lampard recently, who assured him that he was counting on Giroud and that he would have his chance.

When Giroud did play earlier in the season, he made the most of it. He started and scored in the UEFA Super Cup loss against Liverpool in August. He also had convincing performances in the first 45 minutes against Leicester before being subbed off. He was also solid off the bench against Norwich. Now he's waiting for another opportunity to impress his club manager.

A few days ago, he celebrated his 33rd birthday, and as he is getting older, he is also getting wiser. He doesn't want to panic yet, there is no need for it. But ahead of France's upcoming Euro qualifying matches against Iceland and Turkey, manager Didier Deschamps has expressed his concern over Giroud's situation.

"I am worried. I don't take away what Olivier has achieved with us. His recent performances were very good. He is the third-best scorer with the national team. But I wish his situation would change. Above his efficiency, it is also about his rhythm. He already had times before where he was not playing much. But at the moment, it is not enough, fitness-wise. He cannot be at his best," Deschamps said on Monday.

But Deschamps knows Giroud inside-out. He knows he can rely on him and that he will not give up.

It is reminiscent of what happened at the start of the 2017-18 campaign when Giroud was still at Arsenal. Behind Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, he was third choice and he had to leave in January. He went across town in search for more playing time to ensure his spot on the 2018 World Cup squad.

The move worked well for him and for Les Bleus. Even though he didn't score in Russia, Giroud featured in seven matches as France secured their second World Cup trophy.



Could the same happen in January 2020? It is a possibility, but there is still a long way to go before the transfer window opens anew. For now, Giroud wants to show Lampard that he deserves to play more, that he can score goals for Chelsea and bring something different to the team. All of Giroud's career has been defined by such adversity and the need to prove people wrong. This is nothing new to him. It is just a new chapter and he's used to it.

On Friday in Reykjavik, Giroud will start up front alongside Barcelona's Antoine Griezmann. As per iSports API football data, it will be his 94th cap for Les Bleus and he will be looking for his 36th international goal. It will do him a lot of good to play a big part of the game. There is also a very strong chance that he will then start again against Turkey next week at the Stade de France. Starting two games in a row has been so rare this season that it would be great for him to shine at this point in time.

The international break can be tiring for some players, but for Giroud, it represents a breath of fresh air. Hopefully, it'll give him a lot more confidence and momentum before going back to the grind at Chelsea and fighting for his place.

Paco Alcacer: People treated me very badly at Barcelona


Paco Alcacer accused "many people" of treating him badly at Barcelona ahead of a Champions League reunion with his former club.

The Spain international left Barca for Borussia Dortmund on loan at the start of last season and made the move permanent in February.

Alcacer quickly proved a hit in Germany, scoring 18 goals in his first Bundesliga campaign, and already boasts seven in all competitions this term,according to iSports API data.

That form gives the striker the chance to prove a point to those who doubted him when Barca visit Signal Iduna Park on Tuesday.

"I'll decide in the moment," Alcacer told SER Catalunya when questioned on whether he would celebrate scoring.

"I have respect for many people there. Many peopled behaved very well with me but many people behaved very badly. My team-mates and the fans treated me well.

"As in any job, if people trust you, you give your best, and if they don't trust you, you don't give it.

"It's very important for me to see those signs of trust and in the end many people did not show it."

Alcacer made 37 LaLiga appearances in his two seasons with Barca, 23 of them from the bench, as per iSports API.

The former Valencia forward generally served as Luis Suarez's understudy in an attack containing Lionel Messi, who has yet to feature this season due to injury.

Alcacer was asked about Messi's influence at Camp Nou and said: "It's clear that a player of that level is important for the team and for the club.

"You will always ask for his opinion and listen to him.

"Hopefully he will play next weekend, against Granada, and not against us!"

Neymar Is The Best Choice For Bacelona To Increase Strength

Barcelona are confident of bringing Neymar back to the club after talks on Tuesday with Paris Saint-Germain.

According to Goal, Barca CEO Oscar Grau travelled to the French capital with a delegation and reportedly offered the Ligue 1 champions €160 million (£144 million) plus additions for the Brazil superstar.

However, PSG want Portugal international Nelson Semedo as part of any deal and would accept €100 million (£90 million) plus the Barca defender. The Spanish champions are reportedly reluctant to let any of their squad depart Catalonia.

The 27-year-old left the Blaugrana for Les Parisiens for a world-record fee of £222 million (£200 million) during 2017's summer transfer window, as per isports API.

However, just two years on, it appears the forward could soon be lining up once again with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to form their revered attacking trident. It was felt Neymar wanted to escape the shadow of Messi by leaving Barca, but his two years in the French capital have not brought success in the UEFA Champions League to the Parc des Princes.

The Spanish team have allowed Philippe Coutinho to leave for Bayern Munich on loan with a view to a permanent transfer, and the full-time exit of Neymar's compatriot would open the door for a dramatic return for the PSG talisman.

Barca have continued to dominate in La Liga, but Neymar would be expected to help Ernesto Valverde take the club back to the top of European competition.

iSports API helps your business blooming

API technology underlies much of the modern world. Using a sports API is becoming more and more popular among professional business. These connect the pieces that power our apps, our phones, our computers, our cars, and many other elements of modern life.

This essay will focus on a specific use-case for APIs: sports. An API, as you may already know, is an “Application Programming Interface.” But what does this actually mean?

Essentially, an API is like an agreement, or a shared language. It allows databases or applications to communicate with other services. This facilitates systems that “talk to one another.” APIs are available for various platforms. They include websites, databases, services, mobile and desktop apps, operating systems, and so on. And, they’re available for live streaming and on-demand video platforms.

All in a world, An API helps solve technical problems. It allows you to build powerful platforms that interface with other systems to exchange data. This can happen dynamically, in real-time, and without human interaction. Today, almost anyone can use APIs to build complex platforms with limited technical experience. Unlike ad-hoc information exchange systems, APIs are standardized. That makes these systems reliable and scalable.

Real-time and accurate sports data api solutions from iSports API, which provides Sports Data Feeds API solutions and offer Live score api, Live Game stats feeds, Fantasy Data, Historical Data, Prematch and In-play Odds data api for all major sports and leagues.

10 players who could take the Championship by storm this season by iSports API

With the Championship season kicking off this weekend, we have some players to focus on in 2019/20.

With 46 matchdays ahead of us, plus five play-off games, we are expecting these 10 to deliver.

Aleksander Mitrović, Fulham


Having taken the Championship by storm in 2017/18, Mitrović managed 11 goals last season despite Fulham’s dismal attempts to stay up.

You’d have been forgiven for expecting the Serbian to leave this summer but he penned a new deal at Craven Cottage instead and now has to be the favourite to be the Championship’s top scorer.

Kalvin Phillips, Leeds United

Phillips’ ability is no secret. The versatile midfielder became a key part of Leeds’ promotion push last season.

Earning the trust of Marcelo Bielsa, the 23-year-old is crucial defensively for Leeds and helps launch attacks from the base of midfield.

If the Whites are to have success this year, he will be central to it.

Jay Dasilva, Bristol City

An exciting left-back, Dasilva’s loan move from Chelsea has now been made permanent.

Ollie McBurnie, Swansea City

Swansea fans didn’t have a great deal to cheer last season but Ollie McBurnie was a massive success.

While Daniel James has left for Manchester United, McBurnie remains and will carry the attacking burden for Steve Cooper’s side.

Now 23, the striker will look to build on the 22 goals he netted last term.

Neal Maupay, Brentford

Another candidate for the golden boot, Neal Maupay could consider himself unlucky not to be linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer.

Brentford won’t mind, though.

Lucas João, Sheffield Wednesday

Lee Bullen is, for now, in charge at Hillsborough and we have high hopes that he’ll use Lucas João regularly.

The Portuguese has struggled to become a guaranteed starter for Wednesday but has netted a goal every 180 minutes across the last two seasons. Get him in the team!

Nick Powell, Stoke City

Signed on a free from Wigan, Powell could be a game-changer in the Potteries.

A superbly gifted midfielder, the ex-Manchester United man could be one of the players of the season.

Dan Crowley, Birmingham City


Bargain of the summer? Signed for under £1m, you may be looking at him.

Having left Arsenal, Crowley went to the Netherlands in 2017 to play regular first team football.

Two years on, having impressed at Go Ahead Eagles and helped Willem II to a cup final, he’s back in England with a point to prove.

James Collins, Luton Town

“I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve never played in the Championship before, so I’m really excited to get a crack at it.”

At 28, it’s a bit late for Collins to be making his Championship bow.

There is, though, no looking back for a striker who has scored 45 times in two seasons to inspire Luton to back-to-back promotions.

Chuks Aneke, Charlton Athletic


Another former Arsenal man who could prove to be a very savvy signing.

Formerly a midfielder, Aneke reinvented himself as a striker at MK Dons.

An unselfish and intelligent forward, Aneke could be a handful for any defence he comes up against.

How to select the right data provider of Football API

Selecting the right Football API for your sports business, game or hobby project is a difficult process. Whether you are looking for Livescores, Fixtures, Standings, Odds, or any other kind of Football Data, the questions are always the same: Which provider suits your needs? How do you pick the right one? In this blog, I will explain how I travelled this road, and which common Football API shortcomings I faced, followed by a deep dive into the API I think you should explore.

Once in a while we all have ingenious ideas (or at least, we think we do). Let’s suppose you have a great business concept in mind, for which you need Football Data. Proper Football Data. You dream of building a successful Football Website, Football App, Fantasy Football Game, Predictive Betting Website, or anything that requires high-quality Football Data Feeds.



Once you have the broad strokes figured out, the long and arduous search for reliable data providers starts. You will soon find a jungle of them online, which eventually may even leave you more confused than when you first set out. Careful though, there are lots of niches to cover, and many pitfalls to avoid.

Perhaps along the way, you will find what seems like the perfect provider. One that promises you great quality, stays up to date, and seems like the answer to all your prayers. But can you really trust them? Is their data really as reliable as they claim? Do they offer fast Livescores? Or are they just pretending to have fast Livescores?

Of course, you don’t want to spend money on the wrong provider. Unfortunately, it happens to almost every budding sports entrepreneur. So, let me help you in the right direction:

Common API shortcomings:

You come across a Football API that offers you Free Data. You’ve already spent quite some time and money on your project, but the low data quality is damaging your business. In fact, you are losing customers.

You will see inaccurate data at almost every provider. Lagging Livescores, duplicate data, and missing match events, to name a few. But especially with major leagues, accurate data is KEY for a successful business. Even longstanding customers will run away if your data is consistently off the mark.

Another problem you may come across is that those providers who do have a reputation of reliability and accuracy are ridiculously expensive. Let's face it, we all know there are some providers on the market with exorbitant prices an averagely-sized company simply can’t afford.

As I myself ran into these shortcomings with several providers time and again, I decided to start iSports API. My main goal is to provide the best API in the market, that eliminates all these problems. Let me guide you through the process of selecting the right API for you.

The most important 5 API characteristics:

Having a smoothly running Football API is the recipe for success in the businesses of Football Data and Football Betting Data. In order to become a pro and crack the code towards ultimate success, here are a few things you need to keep in mind.


Data Quality

You need good data quality. Now, what is the definition of good data quality? This is when your data is accurate, complete, fast, and up-to-date. I know that so far, I have been focussing on accuracy a lot, but it really deserves all that attention, because it is so essential. Low data quality can seriously harm your credibility and customer trust. Many providers claim to have high-quality data, but they don’t, on closer inspection. Investigate it thoroughly before you trust them!

Data Coverage

Depending on your needs, data coverage may be another critical succes factor. Check the leagues your provider covers. Especially if you want your business to grow in the future, try to select the API with high football leagues coverage. You don’t know how fast your business may grow, and switching APIs halfway is really not what you want, because it will cause extra development costs and delays. You can easily prevent this by choosing the right provider right away.

Speed of Livescores and match events

If livescores are part of your business concept, make sure they are FAST. A 45-second delay for livescore updates can really harm your business. In the Football Data business, you need to be spot-on, and that requires a provider that offers real-time speed. Be sure to test it when you are comparing different providers!

API Flexibility

Lots of providers have a terribly static API setup. So, when you want to customize one to your Football Data business concept, you may find yourself wasting too much time building inefficient and complex work-arounds in its code. A flexible API allows you to simply add or remove parameters from your requests, making customization a breeze.

Support

To kick-start your implementation, your provider’s support quality is critical as well. How quickly do they reply to your emails? Do they have proper documentation on their website? Are you able to test the API from the documentation itself? How quickly do they resolve your issues? Don’t underestimate the importance of you data provider’s support!

The topics above are only a few important aspects to consider when choosing the right Football API. Of course, there’s a ton of other factors to keep in mind. But now that you are familiar with the basic ingredients to the recipe of success, here is how isports API covers all of these.
