Klopp's Tottenham test, Tigers for Mourinho as Wenger battles Hornets

ESPN FC's Ale Moreno and Mark Donaldson predict week 3's Premier League fixtures.

Liverpool's trip to Tottenham is the headline match from the final round of Premier League fixtures before the international break. Jurgen Klopp's men will be looking to bounce back following their shock 2-0 defeat at Burnley last time out.

Elsewhere, Manchester United travel to Hull City, who are surprisingly defending a 100 percent record in the Premier League so far. That's not the case for Leicester, though, with the defending champions hosting Swansea still searching for their first win of...

Liverpool's shaky defending under scrutiny ahead of trip to Tottenham

The boys at How Will They Line Up preview the big, big, big game of the weekend when Liverpool visit White Hart Lane.

W2W4 previews the weekend's Premier League fixtures and highlights five key storylines.

Can Jurgen Klopp tighten up Liverpool's defence?

There was a skewed view of Liverpool heading into their second fixture of the 2016-17 season. Three goals in 14 second-half minutes at Arsenal on the opening weekend had drawn the eye to what they do best: attack with gusto, giving opponents nausea with their movement. But the Reds' worst was also on display in north London. Three goals were conceded, with their...

Crucial fortnight as Chinese football bids for wider respect

Shanghai SIPG striker Hulk
Shanghai SIPG brought in Braziilan striker Hulk for a CSL transfer record fee.

How important is continental performance to a league's standing and reputation? It's a question which has dogged the Premier League's claim to being the "greatest league in the world" over recent seasons, at the same time as English sides' Champions League performances have dropped off.

Whatever the hype and publicity a league may garner, results against sides from other divisions are the only real indication of relative strength. For the Chinese Super League, this means AFC Champions League success...

Jasper Cillessen must regain his World Cup form to have any chance at Barca

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol breaks down all the latest moves and rumours from around the world of football.
Alejandro Moreno and Mark Donaldson discuss who will be Barcelona's No. 1 goalkeeper if Jasper Cillessen moved to the club.

When Jasper Cillessen heard a few weeks ago that FC Barcelona was interested in him, he thought it was a joke. Ajax's goalkeeper has been playing badly lately. He says -- probably rightly -- that even when he is in form, his hero Edwin van der Sar was "many times better than I am". The 27-year-old Dutchman probably isn't a world-class keeper. However, he is a Barca-type keeper: able to fulfill the very unusual demands that Barcelona places on its keeper, or as the Catalan club thinks of the job,...

Can Antonio Conte tame Diego Costa before the striker's luck runs out?

Antonio Conte stresses how important Diego Costa is to Chelsea's success this season.

When you are as street as I am, you tend to stay way ahead of the curve, which is why I was already aware of the new word that the Urban Dictionary recently introduced.

Wenger (noun) -- a person unwilling to spend money.

While "Wenger" has officially moved to cliché status, I remain cutting edge and propose a new evocative football expression for the UD to consider :

Diego (noun) -- a talented tool who you only like when he's on your team. (synonym -- see Bellamy, Craig)

I realize that there...

Five reasons why Leicester is the best city in the UK to watch football

Becky Ives heads up to Leicester to discover why Leicester was voted as the greatest sporting city in the UK.

After exhaustive research by the University of Bath, Leicester has been named as the greatest sporting city in England. This is, to put it mildly, something of a surprise.

We asked our resident Leicester expert Iain Macintosh why the city might have been honoured.


Let's be honest, timing is everything here. If you live in Leicester and support the Foxes, you've just spent a year wrapped up in your own personalised fairytale after the club won the Premier League title.

You've seen your wildest...
