Positives to take from expansive Stoke's loss to Southampton

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes reacts to his team's 1-0 loss to red-hot Southampton at St. Mary's Stadium.

Football widows the world over will be familiar with the post-match reaction of their loved ones' following a defeat: the disappointment, anger and inability to enjoy anything for an unspecified period -- usually the remainder of that day, if not beyond.

Sometimes, though, that trend is overcome by a positive reaction -- and that's exactly what should happen following Stoke's 3-2 loss to Southampton on Wednesday. The Saints are without doubt the best side Stoke have seen this term; their movement...

Leighton Baines' astounding offensive exploits have been overlooked

Roberto Martinez hails Everton's patience and composure in their 3-1 defeat of Burnley.

When it comes to streaks in football very few tend to be overlooked nowadays, be it from a team or individual's perspective.

The two that perhaps stand out in the Premier League right now involve goal-scoring exploits. West Ham's Diafra Sakho has scored in each of his six league starts this season while Aston Villa, as a collective, have failed to score in five. Elsewhere in Europe see Cristiano Ronaldo, who now scores in every game that he plays.

It's goal-scoring, or a lack thereof in the case...

Newcastle right not to sack Alan Pardew, says Brendan Rodgers

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew praises his side's second half efforts during their comeback victory at White Hart Lane.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said Newcastle owner Mike Ashley was right not to sack manager Alan Pardew.

Fans had called for the dismissal of the former West Ham boss during a run of 26 league games that included only five victories.

But the Magpies have won their last three games, including away wins at Tottenham in the Premier League and Manchester City in the Capital One Cup, and Rodgers -- a coach at Reading when Pardew was manager there -- believes that shows United were right to persevere.

Arsene Wenger sweating on Kieran Gibbs injury ahead of Burnley clash

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain compared his Arsenal teammate Alexis Sanchez to Luis Suarez during the weekend. So how do their numbers stack up through their first nine career Premier League matches?

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has said the club will find out on Friday whether Kieran Gibbs' hip injury will keep him out of the weekend's home meeting with bottom of the table Burnley.

Gibbs, 25, limped off in the second half of Arsenal's 2-0 win at Sunderland last Saturday, with youngster Hector Bellerin coming on in his place.

Wenger is already with a number of key players, including right-back Mathieu Debuchy and centre-back Laurent Koscielny, through injury.

Speaking ahead of the Burnley game,...

Everton's Roberto Martinez defends referees over Garry Monk criticism

Swansea City manager Garry Monk highlights the questionable refereeing decisions his team has faced in the past week.

Roberto Martinez has defended the Premier League's referees in the wake of a verbal attack by Swansea boss Garry Monk.

The Everton manager described Mike Riley -- head of the Professional Game Match Officials Board, which manages professional referees in England -- as a "real professional."

Monk will meet Riley on Friday -- a day before the Swans visit Goodison Park -- to discuss what he feels are a series of poor decisions against his side.

The Swansea boss escaped an FA charge for describing a...
