Benteke late winner gets Sherwood and Villa off the mark

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Christian Benteke goal (90'+4') Aston Villa 2-1 West Brom

Time will tell whether Tuesday's breathless 2-1 victory over West Brom will prove to be a genuine turning point in Villa's troubled season, or a one-off triumph in a memorable Midlands derby. But it was a result to celebrate on a night that Villa Park rediscovered its voice, and the hosts finally remembered how to win a game of Premier League football -- a first victory in nearly three months.

Sunderland lack creativity but still earn point at Hull

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Jack Rodwell goal (77') Hull City 1-1 Sunderland

Any Sunderland supporter asked for a view of Gus Poyet's starting XI at Hull City would have bemoaned a formation offering no width or pace, given that the home side had both.

Indeed, many did express the view, on social media and in the stadium. Their fears were justified as Hull charged forward down both flanks. The remedy, when it came, gave Sunderland what they had lacked for an hour and Poyet was able to claw a point from a game that had looked, for long spells, beyond his team.

Mane goal gets Southampton back on winning track

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Sadio Mane (83') Southampton 1-0 Crystal Palace

Something strange happened at St. Mary's on Tuesday night. I'm not overly sure what the technical term is for it, or even what the correct procedure is for when this unlikely event occurs, but at approximately 21:22 local time, a Southampton player put the ball into the back of the opposition goalkeeper's net.

It feels so long since this last happened, that when Sadio Mane reacted fasted to James Ward-Prowse's spilled shot and chipped the ball over grounded Crystal palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni;...

Swansea primed for first-ever Premier League win over Tottenham

Swansea City manager Garry Monk discusses Harry Kane's impressive form this season and how his team will hope to stifle the Tottenham star on Wednesday.

Swansea have the most points they've ever held at this stage in a Premier League season and have a very good chance of ending it with a team-record total. That's assuming manager Garry Monk can keep his team performing at the 1.48 points-per-game clip they've averaged to date. There are one or two other personal bests Swansea can aim for as motivation for the remainder of the season, and beating Spurs for the first time in Premier League play has to be one of them.

Swansea should feel encouraged...

Tottenham focus must now turn to Champions League surge

Swansea City manager Garry Monk discusses Harry Kane's impressive form this season and how his team will hope to stifle the Tottenham star on Wednesday.

In 2008, Spurs beat Chelsea in the Carling Cup final; the remainder of the season was a write-off, as the team decided to go on holiday early. The team barely won another game all season. The following year, Spurs lost to Manchester United in the Carling Cup final; the remainder of the season was triumphant. Back-to-back wins against Chelsea and Arsenal at White Hart Lane and an away win at Manchester City took Spurs into the Champions League for the first -- and so far, only -- time. If Spurs...

Chelsea full of confidence as they cross London for West Ham tilt

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Mark Donaldson preview West Ham's midweek fixture against Chelsea at Upton Park.

It could all have been so different. Chelsea could have been entering their match with West Ham United on Wednesday night with the weight of the world on their shoulders. Had a butterfly on the other side of the world flapped its wings to an alternative beat on Sunday then maybe Tottenham would have prevailed in the Capital One Cup final and Manchester City might have turned their defeat to Liverpool into a victory. Chelsea could have found themselves sitting second in the Premier League by the time...
