MANCHESTER, England -- Three thoughts on Manchester United's 2-0 win vs. Sunderland in the Premier League.

1. United labour to another win

It was yet another day when all would seem perfect at Manchester United if you looked just at the result and avoided the actual performance. There remains this deep disconnect between the two, as well as the feeling that it has to snap at some point.

At the same time, it is to their huge credit that they keep persevering, keep going and keep staying in those Champions...

An arguably undeserved but more than welcome lead at Upton Park.

The result leaves Palace on 30 points and only the most pessimistic of supporters would...

Arsene Wenger challenges Arsenal players to defend as well as attack

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is expecting to see a response from his side against Everton on Sunday after their shock UEFA Champions League defeat to Monaco on Wednesday.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger claims his job is under just as much pressure as any other Premier League manager, while warning his players they'll have to show effort on both defense and in the attack if they want to be selected.
