Three Points: Manchester City vs. Burnley

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley discusses Manchester City's inability to close the gap at the top, while Arsenal were able to close in on the top four with a win at West Ham.

MANCHESTER, England -- Three quick thoughts from Manchester City's shock 2-2 draw with Burnley at the Etihad on Sunday.

1. City blow their chance

Just when Manchester City looked likely to go within a point of Chelsea, they turned in 45 minutes of listlessness and inertia to put the whip hand firmly back in Jose Mourinho's possession. Burnley fought back valiantly, and fully deserved a point that was beyond the expectation of all but their ever-positive manager Sean Dyche.

Two goals down, Burnley...

Three Points: Arsenal belie familiar faults to beat West Ham

LONDON -- A trio of observations about Arsenal's 2-1 win at West Ham on Sunday in the Premier League.

1.   Arsenal show some spirit

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is very keen on emphasising his side's "spirit" and affirms that his players' mental toughness is much more apparent than many outside observers might believe.

The evidence has suggested otherwise at times, with the number of Arsenal defeats against the Premier League's big teams -- both in terms of quality of opponent and physical...

Three Points: Southampton vs. Chelsea

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley reiterates that the Premier League is not a one-horse race following Chelsea's 1-1 draw at Southampton.

SOUTHAMPTON, England -- Three quick thoughts from Chelsea's 1-1 draw against top-four contenders Southampton at St. Mary's Stadium on Sunday.

1. One point gained, two points lost

This was a breakthrough result for a hard-working Southampton side as they finally claimed some success against one of the Premier League's big hitters. On the other hand, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho could only conclude this was a missed opportunity for his title chasers to secure a huge victory.

Three Points: Tottenham and Man United cannot break through

ESPN FC's Craig Burley analyses the match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, which ended in a scoreless draw.

LONDON -- A trio of observations on Sunday's 0-0 draw between Tottenham and Manchester United in the Premier League:

1. Unchanged United can't take advantage

Louis van Gaal faced down the Christmas pile-up and fell just short. Injuries have meant Van Gaal has not exactly had a full squad at his disposal over the festive period, but the selection of an unchanged side for this midday kickoff, just 45 hours after Manchester United had kicked off at home to Newcastle, felt like bravery -- bravado, even.


Three Points: Raheem Sterling the hero as Liverpool edge Burnley

Raheem Sterling's second-half strike ensured Liverpool managed their first league victory in four matches despite turning in a poor performance at struggling Burnley.

BURNLEY, England -- Raheem Sterling's second-half goal was the difference as Liverpool picked up a valuable 1-0 away win at Burnley. Here are three quick points from their Boxing Day clash at Turf Moor:

1. Sharp Sterling helps Liverpool win ugly

Brendan Rodgers is a proponent of the beautiful game, but there can be little doubt that his side won ugly at Turf Moor. Liverpool were nowhere near as fast or as fluent as they had been in possession against Arsenal on Sunday, let alone as potent...

1. United roll back the years

Thrilling forward play and deadly counterattacks are what a younger generation of Manchester United fans were brought up on. If this season's Premier League title looks beyond Louis Van Gaal's team, Old Trafford is being presented with a vision of an imminent future in which their team might soon compete with Chelsea and Manchester City.
