Manchester United roll back the clock with 'Fergie Time' draw vs. Chelsea

Relive Sunday's Premier League action as Everton secured a comfortable 3-1 victory over Burnley, Newcastle shocked Tottenham and Robin van Persie salvaged a point for Manchester United against Chelsea.

Greenwich Mean Time took quite a beating Sunday. First, the clocks were set back by an hour all over England -- everywhere, that is, except at Old Trafford, where the calendar rolled back by, oh, some two and a half years.

The game between Manchester United and Chelsea had all the trappings of Groundhog Day, circa 2012. There were the two managers, one egotistical mentor and one preening disciple, making a big show of their mutual respect and admiration with no less than four bro hugs.

There was...

Arsene Wenger shows his grit vs. Chelsea but the Gunners fail to follow

The ESPN FC crew discuss Arsene Wenger's and Jose Mourinho's heated exchange during their league clash, and who might win in a hypothetical fight.

Jose Mourinho may be the greatest manager since the gods first breathed life into mud, but he is completely wrong about one thing: Arsene Wenger is not a "specialist in failure." Because the Frenchman absolutely succeeded in winning Sunday's hotly contested Sideline Shovefest.

Of course, Wenger did fail at the little things -- from winning the game to even seeing his team score at the Bridge -- but he'll always have that beauty of a shove in his imaginary trophy case.

You'd think that by now,...

'Derby Day Dread' hits Arsenal, Liverpool in disappointing draws

The ESPN FC's crew review the weekend results in the Premier League and lament the lack of drama in the latest edition of the North London derby.

On the face of it, Saturday was set up to be delightful for Liverpool and Arsenal fans. The sun was out, the sky was blue and their teams were about to play a fun game of whack-a-mole with local rivals who pop out of their holes twice a year until their tortured psyches scream, "We're not worthy."

Yet as I dragged my bleary-eyed self to the bar of New York's Football Factory at 7:30 a.m., I was filled with an uneasy feeling that I was pretty sure had nothing to do with the two cheese-slathered...

A big win and their rivals' eye-opening failures gave Arsenal a super weekend

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop and Alejandro Moreno react to Manchester United's 5-3 loss against Leicester City.

As Premier League weekends go, it was one for the ages. I'd like to dip the past 48 hours in Lucite and place them on my mantelpiece next to my daughter's graduation photo and my signed pair of (slightly used) Thierry Henry compression shorts. Simply put, it was more fun than an Arsenal fan is allowed to have.

And I'm not just referring to those 179 seconds of pure Gooner ecstasy that resulted in a 3-0 thrashing of Aston Villa. The Claret and Blue started the day in second place before being struck...

What the first victory of the Louis van Gaal era says about Man United

Despite Manchester United's thrashing of QPR, ESPN FC's Craig Burley tells us why to not get excited about the Red Devils quite yet.

So all it took for Manchester United to get its first real win of the Louis van Gaal era was about a quarter of billion dollars -- not counting whatever insane amount of money they're paying their Dutch master.

That the breakthrough came in their fifth attempt and against a less-than-fierce opponent should not be held against them. As the saying goes, you can only beat what's in front of you, and United had so far failed to get three points off anybody, including some pretty low-rent competition....

Say goodbye to 'boring' Chelsea

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti's weighs in on Chelsea and Everton's free-scoring match, which saw some awful defence from both sides.

I believe it was Benjamin Franklin who coined the maxim "In this world, nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes." Having not lived through the Premier League era, Ben can be forgiven for not knowing life's other constant: "Chelsea matches are always boring."

But after Saturday, I can't even bank on that old chestnut anymore. If English soccer continues to be this wild and unpredictable, who knows? Someday Arsenal might even acquire a reliable striker who isn't a Man United cast-off.
