SAN DIEGO -- The play was vintage Landon Donovan. A right-footed pass took three defenders and the goalkeeper out of the play, allowing a teammate to score at the far post. The crowd roared, his teammates celebrated.

At which point, one could not help but notice the surroundings. The venue was not Dignity Health Sports Park, the renamed home of Donovan's beloved LA Galaxy. Nor was it any of the World Cup venues he has graced over the years. Rather, it was the 62-year-old Pechanga Arena -- formerly...

For Liverpool and Man City, beating the 'low block' could be decisive in tight title race

Despite Manchester City's strong run of form, ESPN FC's Paul Mariner explains why Liverpool remain his favourites to win the Premier League title.

The 2018-19 Premier League season offers the most intriguing title battle in many years, yet unfortunately, we won't witness a genuine title-decider between Liverpool and Manchester City. The two contenders have already played each other twice -- a boring goalless draw at Anfield early in the season, and then a 2-1 City win at the start of January.

The Exploding Heads bring you all the happenings from the Premier League weekend, plus a bonus Valentine's Day message from Cristiano Ronaldo!
Paul Scholes is excited to finally get into football management, though he faces a serious challenge at his local club, Oldham.

OLDHAM, England -- When Manchester United last played a European home game, in November against Young Boys, a horrified Paul Scholes watched from the television studio and, as usual, didn't mince his words.

"It's always 'I,' isn't it?" he said of Jose Mourinho's post match interview after a difficult 1-0 win. "I won the Champions League. I won the Europa League.' Last time I looked football was a team game."

Scholes was critical of both United's football and Mourinho's tactics at the time....

Tuchel's moment of truth: Can PSG beat Manchester United without Neymar, Cavani?

Sometimes Thomas Tuchel concentrates so hard that he can't see a person standing a yard beside him. He must feel like that this week.

On Tuesday, the giant, obsessive manager sends his weakened, Neymar-less Paris Saint-Germain side out against a resurgent Manchester United. If PSG wins, the club remains on track for its last remaining obsession and, frankly, almost the sole point of its existence these days: its first-ever Champions League trophy. (So dominant is Paris at home that nobody is excited...
