Barclays Premier League

Great goal but no points


Martinez's woe at wretched Everton

West Ham sitting fourth as run of good form continues versus Leicester City

Andy Carroll opened up the scoring again, as West Ham moved within one point of Manchester United.

West Ham remain fourth in the Premier League after a comfortable 2-0 win over Leicester City. Barring two late chances from substitutes David Nugent and Leonardo Ulloa -- both superbly stopped by Hammers keeper Adrian -- Leicester never really threatened the Hammers at all.

Talk instead was of an Andy Carroll goal lofted over the keeper on a one-on-one, another sweetly-struck shot by Stewart Downing that curled around the keeper from distance and a lovely pass by local boy Paul Konchesky to...

With Premier League lead diminishing, Chelsea must remain focused

Belgium playmaker Eden Hazard can become a Chelsea legend, according to his boss Jose Mourinho.

For the first time this season, Chelsea find themselves experiencing the unfamiliar feeling of pressure.

The eight points that only a few weeks ago separated the Blues from their main rivals for the Premier League title, Manchester City, have now evaporated (though Chelsea have a game in hand). The expected win for the Citizens over Crystal Palace has seen them draw level with Chelsea at the top of the table as they start to look something more like the team crowned champion last May.

Suddenly, errant...

Despite Barnes' superb goal, Burnley get nothing from Tottenham

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Ashley Barnes goal (27') Tottenham 1-1 Burnley

It was a case of "what if?" at White Hart Lane on Saturday as Burnley narrowly lost 2-1. Sean Dyche's team pushed Spurs close but were just unable to force an equaliser with Hugo Lloris in fine form during a second-half barrage of chances.

Danny Ings had three good opportunities to pinch a point for the Clarets, but each time he was denied by the French goalkeeper at his near post when perhaps shooting across goal was a better option for the striker. Lloris was excellent throughout and his saves...

Roberto Martinez deserves criticism for wretched Everton's dire form

Romelu Lukaku put one in his own net in Everton's dire 3-0 defeat at Southampton on Saturday.

Once Southampton extinguished Everton's early promise with the opening goal, there was little hope for the Toffees on their trip to the south coast on Saturday. The home side finished good value for their 3-0 win and Roberto Martinez has plenty of questions to answer as he faces up to the toughest period of his Everton career.

Last season, two own goals on this ground ended the Toffees' Champions League hopes. Another goal by an Everton player had the Saints en route to an easy three points this...

Player Ratings: Lamela and Kane on target as Spurs overcome Burnley

Erik Lamela scored his first league goal for Tottenham as Mauricio Pochettino's men overcame a spirited Burnley 2-1 at White Hart Lane.

Tottenham's 2-1 win over Burnley on Saturday completed a good week following Spurs' advancement to the Capital One Cup semifinals, but manager Mauricio Pochettino should be concerned about his team's inability to completely kill off weaker opposition.

This was a game Spurs should have won at a canter, but by the end, the White Hart Lane crowd was in a familiar nail-biting position. Pochettino will argue his tactics were vindicated by the score line, while others may argue he could have saved himself...

Player Ratings: Radamel Falcao gets his goal but United slip up at Villa

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal believes his side should have taken all three points from their 1-1 draw at Aston Villa.
Radamel Falcao scored his second goal for Manchester United but it wasn't enough to complete a turnaround as 10-man Aston Villa held them to a 1-1 draw.

Manchester United travelled to Aston Villa with the hope of getting their seventh win on the trot amid talk of the title but missed their chance and the 1-1 draw on Saturday was a disappointment.

They will be particularly frustrated they didn't make more of their dominance in the first half. United saw lots of the ball but created next to nothing, and although there was more urgency in the second half, Gabriel Agbonlahor's sending off did the visitors no favours as the hosts became more defensive.
