Has Arsenal's recent run of form cost them the Premier League title?

After Arsenal's recent results, Tommy Smyth discusses whether or not Arsenal are still title contenders.
The FC crew discuss Arsenal's four-game winless run and debate whether or not they can still win the Premier League title.

This Premier League season has been something of a carnival sideshow. From the miraculous Leicester City to the macabre Chelsea, the table is chock full of oddities. Among the weirdness, though, one comforting storyline remains.

Arsenal, in traditional Arsenal fashion, appear to be Arsenal-ing their way down the table. They're now five points behind Leicester City and three behind their most likely rival, Manchester City. They've dropped behind hated North London rival Tottenham Hotspur on goal...

Leicester intensity overcomes toothless Liverpool as Vardy shines

The ESPN FC panel discuss if Leicester City are actually starting to believe that they could win the EPL title this season.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp discusses their loss to Leicester, stating they could have won had they taken their chances.

The Leicester fairytale continued on Tuesday night as they beat Liverpool 2-0 with a display that featured all the qualities that have propelled them to the league summit. Fuelled with confidence and energy, the Foxes pressed the visitors into errors and scored a sensational opening goal that involved their two star men and a trademark counter-attack.

Manager Claudio Ranieri normally defends deep against big clubs at the King Power stadium, but here Leicester pushed up high to deny Liverpool space...

How will Pep Guardiola assess Manchester City's current squad?

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Steve Nicol discuss who Pep Guardiola should try to bring in to strengthen Manchester City.
The ESPN FC crew discuss Pep Guardiola's move to Manchester City and that City have been pursuing Guardiola for a long time.
The ESPN FC crew answer your tweets on who Guardiola should sign first at City, if Mancini is done at Inter and more.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley says Man City signing Guardiola as manager doesn't mean they'll have success in Champions League.

Predicting Pep Guardiola's assessment of Manchester City's current squad is a trickier task than might be expected. Across his time in charge at Barcelona and Bayern Munich there are common themes and obvious concepts he insists upon -- the simple concept of possession football being the most obvious example -- but his favoured type of player has varied dramatically.

It's worth remembering, for example, that when Guardiola took charge of Bayern three years ago, the consensus was that he'd struggle...

Why don't players from Serie A adapt well to the tricky Premier League?

With the January transfer window inching shut, Shaka Hislop and Alexis Nunes discuss who will be on the move.

Premier League clubs are increasingly using statisticians when researching potential new recruits, but the role of these analysts is often misunderstood. It's not simply about scouting individual players and providing pass completion percentages and assist figures, but also about finding more general trends. For example, one Premier League club's analytics department has been concentrating heavily on deducing how "transferable" statistics are from one league to another; if you get X number of goals...

Barcelona edge feisty Atletico thanks to Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez

Atletico Madrid posed Barcelona problems in their 2-1 defeat at the Camp Nou, despite seeing two players sent off.

Barcelona recorded their six successive win over Atletico Madrid on Saturday, to extend their lead in La Liga to three points with a game in hand.

The Catalans were rarely at their best, however, and having overcome Atletico's early pressure to turn a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead, they failed to add a third despite playing 25 minutes with a two-man advantage.

Atletico may not have emerged with the points, but they left the Camp Nou with credit. Diego Simeone shelved his 4-3-3 formation to go 4-4-2...

Cesc Fabregas shines for Chelsea as Arsenal miss Olivier Giroud

Arsene Wenger believed Diego Costa engineered the red card for Per Mertesacker during Arsenal's defeat to Chelsea.

This may be the most unpredictable season in years, but some things remain the same -- Arsenal still have their Chelsea complex.

Arsene Wenger's team remain without a win against their London rivals in nine league fixtures, and Sunday's 1-0 defeat at the Emirates wouldn't have been made easier by the sight of Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas relishing protagonist roles.

Arsenal's former playmaker looked sharp from the start, and Costa provided the breakthrough by tempting Per Mertesacker to foul him...
