Three Points: Man City deservedly knocked out of Capital One Cup

ESPN FC's Craig Burley questions Manchester City's recent form following their latest slip-up in a 2-0 loss to Newcastle United in the Capital One Cup.

MANCHESTER -- Three quick thoughts after Newcastle's first win at the Etihad, a 2-0 Capital One Cup result against holders Manchester City.

1. City deserved to go out

The previous team to retain the League Cup, in its many guises, came from Manchester. Now Manchester City cannot strip Manchester United of that distinction. The holders are out, and deservedly. Newcastle may have lulled everyone into a false sense of security by naming a second-string side, but City were decidedly second-best in...

Balotelli comes to Liverpool's rescue in Capital One Cup comeback

Dejan Lovren's late winner secured a quarterfinal place for Liverpool.

LIVERPOOL, England -- A trio of observations from Liverpool's 2-1 win vs. Swansea in the Capital One Cup fourth round.

1. Balotelli finally delivers

When Mario Balotelli jogged onto the Anfield pitch in the 79th minute, Liverpool were going out of the Capital One Cup and were exiting without a whimper. Indeed, for the second time in three seasons, Brendan Rodgers faced the prospect of elimination by former club Swansea.

Yet one of the benefits of having an unpredictable character is that his impulsive,...

Revival of Man Utd late show on display in last-gasp draw with Chelsea

Robin van Persie's stoppage-time strike saw 10-man Chelsea settle for a 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

MANCHESTER, England -- It was once a Manchester United trademark that might now be returning to commission. Two Dutchman have revived the United late show: Robin van Persie's injury-time strike against Chelsea followed Daley Blind's 87th-minute equaliser at West Bromwich Albion on Monday.

Slowly but surely, Louis van Gaal is changing United for the better. Last season, a sight of meek surrender was all too common. Former manager David Moyes could not inspire rescue situations, let alone win matches...

Three Points: Manchester United vs. Chelsea

Robin van Persie's stoppage-time strike saw 10-man Chelsea settle for a 1-1 draw against Manchester United.

Three quick thoughts from Old Trafford, where Manchester United earned a stoppage-time 1-1 draw against 10-man Chelsea on Sunday.

1. Van Persie pegs back Blues

At the very death, Robin van Persie stopped Chelsea from going six points clear in the Premier League title race -- eight if you're of the opinion that Manchester City is a stronger contender for the title than Southampton -- to leave the rest fighting for minor places. The Blues' advantage is four, which is decent enough, but Jose Mourinho...

Three Points: Tottenham vs. Newcastle

LONDON -- A trio of observations on Newcastle United's 2-1 comeback win vs. Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday in the Premier League.

1. Table tightens up

A huge lift for Newcastle, another crash down to earth for Tottenham, and something of a crunch in the middle of the table.

After this 2-1 win at White Hart Lane, Newcastle are now within a point of Spurs. That is all the starker because of the strikingly different circumstances of these clubs before this match.

Three points: Marco Pappa delivers Supporters' Shield to Seattle Sounders

A late brace from Marco Pappa ensured that Seattle would take home the Supporters' Shield.

SEATTLE - The Seattle Sounders' quest for the treble remains on course.

Seattle earned a 2-0 victory over the L.A. Galaxy, a result that allowed it to win the Supporters' Shield, emblematic of the best regular-season record in MLS, for the first time in its history.

The Sounders and the Galaxy entered the match level on points, and a draw would have still been enough to give Seattle the shield based on the total wins tiebreaker, but two late goals from substitute Marco Pappa allowed the home side...
