Mourinho turns to long-ball tactics for Man United to claim Liverpool draw

The FC panel feel the 1-1 result was fair for Man United and Liverpool, but think Paul Pogba certainly didn't help matters.

Liverpool and Manchester United played out their second draw in the Premier League this season, but this was a contest of far greater intensity, drama and tactical interest than the drab 0-0 at Anfield in October.

Jurgen Klopp switched to a 4-4-2 diamond in which Adam Lallana marked Michael Carrick and Divock Origi challenged Phil Jones, but their best chances came via set-pieces and defensive errors, such as when Paul Pogba's handball allowed James Milner to convert from the spot.

There were fewer...

Pochettino copies Conte, Tottenham thwart Costa to deny Chelsea

The ESPN FC crew look at how Tottenham defeated Chelsea.
The ESPN FC crew look at how Tottenham defeated Chelsea.

Managers often talk about how results hinge on small details, and Antonio Conte might have thought something similar after Chelsea's 13-game Premier League winning streak came to an end with a 2-0 defeat at Tottenham on Wednesday night.

In an intense battle between two dynamic sides, it quickly became apparently why we were watching the two best defences in the division. Spurs had the edge overall, but relied on converting the two big chances they produced, and will have been relieved to see Eden...

Jurgen Klopp outwits Pep Guardiola as Liverpool edge Manchester City

Liverpool prevailed 1-0 in an error-strewn game at Anfield on Saturday that left Manchester City 10 points adrift of Premier League leaders Chelsea. Both teams pressed intensively, forcing errors and disrupting the play of the opponent, and so the few chances of note came via misplaced passes and turnovers rather than any form of coherent attacking.

Ironically, one of the tactical moves that were meant to improve the general precision involved Jurgen Klopp moving Roberto Firmino back into the False...

Direct approach pays off for Everton as Leicester's problems go on

Everton scraped to their first Premier League away win in seven attempts with a 2-0 triumph at Leicester on Boxing Day. The game was not easy on the eye, with both managers adopting direct and low-risk approaches, and it felt suitable that both goals came from long clearances.

Claudio Ranieri stuck to his 4-4-2, but his side were hampered by the absences of three key players, and it did not help that the Italian benched Riyad Mahrez over apparent poor form. With Jamie Vardy one of those absent,...

Pressing is the Premier League's big trend, but it's not without its problems

Shaka Hislop says despite Sadio Mane's comments, it will be hard for Liverpool to replace him while he's at the AFCON.

If Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool win the Premier League title this season, we might look back upon Monday's 1-0 victory over Everton as among their most significant triumphs. It was a classic "the mark of champions" win: an away trip to local rivals, a poor game, a below-par performance and a late winner. Liverpool supporters haven't celebrated so hard for years.

For neutrals who anticipated a good game at Goodison Park, however, Monday was a damp squib. There was intensity and aggression throughout...

Pep Guardiola goes back to basics as Manchester City beat Arsenal

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol discusses Manchester City's 2-1 win over Arsenal.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol discusses Manchester City's 2-1 win over Arsenal.

Manchester City produced a stirring comeback to punish a slack and reactive Arsenal side who have now suffered two crushing away defeats within a week. City dominated possession as always, but the key details behind their 2-1 win on Sunday hinged on factors normally less associated with Pep Guardiola, such as second balls and swift transitions.

Another notable aspect was the simplification of their approach, Guardiola choosing a 4-2-3-1 system and sticking with it. The only anomaly was the use of...
