Chelsea warm up for winning bigger prizes with cruise to Capital One Cup

The ESPN FC panel highlight Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho's defensive tactics as being the key elements to his side's victory over Tottenham in the Capital One Cup final.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was delighted to beat Tottenham 2-0 in the League Cup final.

Does it have to be this easy? Did someone not related to the FA disciplinary committee decree that Chelsea's road to English soccer supremacy needed to be one extended two-month lap of honor?

How else to explain why Man City and Tottenham chose the same day to offer Bill Gates-levels of charity toward Chelsea? These were acts of altruism on such a grand scale that you half-expected City and Spurs to offer to pay for Jose Mourinho's cleaning bill after the Delirious One celebrated his team's good...

NYCFC, David Villa move beyond the Lampard mess and finally take the field

Our experts weigh in on the motives behind a potential strike in the MLS.

This is the second in an occasional series by ESPN FC columnist David Hirshey, a lifelong NYC soccer fan who covered the New York Cosmos beat. David will follow the creation and trajectory of the newest Major League Soccer team, New York City FC, offering his fan's perspective on the fledgling club throughout its maiden season in 2015.

Ever since NYCFC unveiled the marquee face of its franchise in July only to find out in December that, oops, the player actually belonged to a different team, the...

Harry Kane, Spurs destroyed Arsenal, but top-four race still as tight as ever

A derby-filled weekend in the Premier League featured Harry Kane's North London takeover, a 'tedious' Merseyside derby and more questions for Louis van Gaal and Manchester United.

As if it wasn't painful enough to lose the North London derby on a late goal, the ultimate humiliation occurred immediately after the final whistle: I was hugged by a Spurs fan. After the initial revulsion had coursed through my body, I realized this was even worse than the normally delirious (some would say drunken) celebrations I've encountered in my local pub over the years. This felt like ... sympathy!

As the game ended, I was slumped mournfully at the bar when I felt an arm around my shoulders....

Jose Mourinho puts safety first, wasting Chelsea's chance vs. Man City

The ESPN FC crew answer your questions in regard to the worst player in Chelsea's clash against Manchester City, AS Roma's chances at winning Serie A and more.
The ESPN FC team discuss their Premier League team of week 23, highlighted by Jonathan Walters' hat-trick performance and Santi Cazorla's midfield performance against Aston Villa.

My heart breaks for poor, beleaguered, league-leading Chelsea. Can't everybody stop picking on the Blues and let them go about their divinely ordained right to win all the trophies?

Given the relentless sniping from opposing fans and managers, not to mention all those mean TV commentators hell-bent on sabotaging the Blues' silverware quest, can you blame Jose Mourinho for being a bit defensive? And by defensive, I don't just mean morphing into The Silent One after the game and refusing to talk...

Santi Cazorla, Francis Coquelin deliver Arsenal's biggest win in years

A big weekend in the Premier League featured Louis van Gaal's younger look-alike, Alan Pardew's continued honeymoon with Crystal Palace and Arsenal's revenge at the Etihad.
The ESPN FC team discuss the Premier League team of week 22, highlighted by a strong Arsenal influence following their 2-0 win over Manchester City.

So this is what it feels like to win a big Premier League away game. The sheer delirium that comes from finally beating one of your perceived peers in their house cannot be underestimated when you've failed the previous 15 times -- a streak of futility that came to an exquisite end after Arsenal punked Manchester City 2-0 on Sunday.

It's a cathartic release, a joyful affirmation, an excuse to sing "with a knick knack paddy whack give a dog a bone, Santi Cazorla poked one home" while dancing...

Will winning stop Jose Mourinho from claiming conspiracies against Chelsea?

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has been charged with misconduct after implying there is a campaign against Chelsea.

These are anxious times for Chelsea fans despite the Blues sitting atop the Premier League table. There they perch only two uncomfortable points above Manchester City or, as we've come to know them in the past week, The Club That Frank Lampard Plays For Until Sheikh Mansour States Otherwise.

But that's the least of their problems. Everywhere Jose Mourinho looks the forces of evil are arrayed against his team. No wonder the Chelsea boss has to sleep with the night light on.

Consider the conspiratorial...
