Man United need a big game from Alexis Sanchez vs. Man City

The ESPN FC panel question if Jose Mourinho's tactics will result in Alexis Sanchez not fulfilling his potential at Manchester United.
Manchester City can clinch the Premier League title against Man United, but Craig Burley explains why Saturday's Manchester derby has lost some of its shine.
The critics are already out on Man United's latest big money signing Alexis Sanchez, who has struggled as of yet to make a splash at his new club.
Pep Guardiola hints he is ready to rest players against Manchester United, despite the possibility of wrapping up the Premier League title on Saturday.

Alexis Sanchez's January transfer to Manchester United was, on paper, among the most dramatic moves in Premier League history.

There were three major factors to it. The first was the novelty of a genuine, real-life swap deal between Arsenal and United, two of the Premier League's biggest clubs. It was exciting simply because for all the tabloid rumours, such exchange deals barely ever actually come to fruition. But this time everything went through, and two high-profile footballers suddenly...

Might Raheem Sterling be the key to Man City vs. Liverpool?

ESPN's Jonathan Smith and Glenn Price discuss whether the atmosphere at Anfield can be the decisive factor in who reaches the Champions League semi-finals.
The ESPN FC guys look ahead to the Champions League quarterfinal first leg between Liverpool and Manchester City.
As much as Pep Guardiola would like to clinch the Premier League title against Manchester United, his main priority is Man City's UCL quarterfinal clash against Liverpool.

Ordinarily, for a fixture like this week's clash between Manchester City and Liverpool, you want both sides to have full-strength squads, managers able to play their strongest hand and for the game to be influenced by top-class attacking talents.

This time around, however, the absence of Sergio Aguero might prompt a more complex, unpredictable game.

Aguero remains an exceptional striker, boasting a mixture of acceleration and clinical finishing that few others in Europe can match. But he's...

Sanchez, Kane, De Bruyne, Salah: Top players must have the ball to lose it

Craig Burley and Alexis Nunes take a look at the European Golden Shoe race and debate whether Mo Salah will win it over Leo Messi.
The FC panel answer your tweets on why Alexis Sanchez has been so poor for Manchester United, if Jose Mourinho is the second best manager in the Premier League and more.

Football has always been about statistics. The concept of a top scorer, for example, has been established for decades and yet is essentially a statistical irrelevance, given it almost always has no bearing upon the destination of a league title. That example, though, proves the statistics debate is nuanced.

It's not about whether or not you use figures, but about what you record and how you interpret the numbers. Even the now-established idea of the assist was only formally defined in the 1990s...

Mourinho not finished at Man United, but not proven, either

Throughout his first two seasons at Manchester United, Jose Mourinho has regularly faced criticism for being too defensive. Although it's an issue that's dogged him throughout his career, it's arguably only been problematic at two clubs, Real Madrid and Manchester United, whose supporters believe their club boasts a proud tradition of playing attack-minded football.

At Porto, Chelsea and Inter, Mourinho often played defensive football without much dissent from fans largely because he led them...

Man City chase Premier League record while playing beautiful game

Manchester City's Bernardo Silva and Leroy Sane reflect on their comprehensive win over Arsenal as they go 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola still sees room for improvement despite Manchester City's 3-0 victory over Arsenal at the Emirates.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley compares Arsenal's consecutive 3-0 defeats at the hands of Manchester City to a couple of friendly matches.

When looking at the fixture list in August, this weekend's clash between Manchester City and Chelsea -- the title favourites against the title holders -- appeared crucial in determining the destination of the Premier League trophy.

Instead, it's anything but a six-pointer: City are way out in front, while Chelsea are merely chasing Champions League qualification after a wretched couple of months. But also in the sights of Pep Guardiola's side is the Premier League all-time points record, the holders...

Chelsea's struggles at both ends largely due to growing pains of Alvaro Morata, Andreas Christensen

Former Chelsea midfielder Craig Burley assesses whether Antonio Conte will still be at the helm in mid-March by the end of their brutal run of upcoming fixtures.

It's been a peculiar and somewhat unusual week for Chelsea -- two good performances in tricky contests against Barcelona and Manchester United, but little to show for their efforts. Having opened the scoring in both matches, Antonio Conte's men will feel disappointed not to be taking a first-leg lead to the Nou Camp, and underwhelmed at being defeated 2-1 at Old Trafford.

It's rare to be speaking about Chelsea in these terms, because this is a club that has spent much of the last 15 years doing...
