Hull City praying for a miracle

Hull City

Arsenal must end season on a high


For the sake of the supporters, Newcastle must rise up and survive

The ESPN FC panel dicuss the English Premier League relegation battle, where Shaka Hislop believes Newcastle United don't look like beating any team right now.

This is it for Newcastle United. Sunday's game at home to West Ham United is D-Day. Sunderland's hard earned 1-1 draw at Arsenal on Wednesday assured Dick Advocaat's side safety, meaning that the dreaded and incredibly costly drop will happen to either Hull City (1/7 relegation favourites with the bookmakers) or Newcastle (4/1).

For Hull to stand any chance of staying up, they must beat Manchester United -- something they haven't managed since November 1974. Meanwhile, Newcastle's destiny is in...

Jose Mourinho is a serial winner and master of the Premier League

The Blues manager insists he didn't give his players four days off, but catered to the needs of his players recuperation accordingly.
This season Jose Mourinho guided Chelsea to their fourth Premier League title and the 22nd trophy of his career.

LONDON -- Jose Mourinho's eyes got tighter and his mood suddenly more tenacious. It was the manager's usual Friday press conference, this time on the eve of Chelsea's April 0-0 draw with Arsenal, but he was initially doing something many would consider unusual for him.

Sitting behind a desk conspicuously placed so that the attending media must look up to him, Mourinho was trying to be magnanimous about longtime rival Arsene Wenger. Then, the offending question came, and the small room in the club's...

Champions Chelsea out for one last hurrah before summer of changes

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho hopes for Petr Cech to stay and admitted he would retract his comments regarding the refereeing 'campaign' against Chelsea.

The champagne has been on ice at Stamford Bridge since May 3, when Chelsea secured the Premier League title with a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace. Three weeks on, and after the final game of the season against Sunderland on Sunday, John Terry -- Chelsea's captain, leader and legend -- will again get to lift above his head the most challenging trophy to win in world football.

The bubbly will be nicely chilled, and the denizens of the Bridge will be in a celebratory mood. But will those renowned...

Tottenham must find Europa League motivation in finale vs. Everton

England Under-21 manager Gareth Southgate feels Harry Kane will thrive at the European Championships in the Czech Republic.
Hugo Lloris, middle, and Tottenham could secure a trip to the Europa League with a win vs. Everton this weekend.

Not a moment too soon, Tottenham's season of three quarters comes to an end on Sunday. What started in incompetence and later became thrilling is now ending in indifference. From players and fans alike.

When the players took their traditional end of season lap of honour after the last home game against Hull, there were less than 10,000 people left in the stadium. It was almost embarrassing.

The Europa League is now seemingly an inevitability; to avoid qualification there will need to be a rare conjunction...

Tom Heaton's England call-up ends Burnley's season on a high

While Burnley defeated Hull City via a Danny Ings volley, the victory would ultimately not be enough to keep the Clarets in the Premier League.

Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton received his first call-up to the England squad this week, and while it came as a surprise, it is richly deserved.

Heaton has been consistently excellent this season, and his nine clean sheets mark him as one of the top English goalkeepers in the Premier League -- not that there is much competition.

Injuries to Ben Foster and Fraser Forster have opened the door for Heaton, who has kept clean sheets in his past two games, and while relegation from the Premier League...
