Carlo or Klopp: Who is right for Reds?

Premier League title chasing teams full of obvious flaws

It was another big, big weekend in the English Premier League, Anthony Richardson recaps the best and worst of it.

If the first eight rounds of the 2014-15 Premier League season have told us anything, it's that nobody's perfect. Each of the clubs whose aspirations lie in lifting trophies and qualifying for the Champions League have obvious failings.

Last season, Chelsea raced into an early lead and stayed out in front, beginning with a flourish and then battening down the hatches as the finish drew in sight. This time, Manchester City looked to repeat that in winning their first five but lost the next two, despite...

Man United's Morgan Schneiderlin should be a key player in starting XI

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says an average Manchester United side just couldn't keep up with a reformed Arsenal squad in this week's Premier League action.

It might be a coincidence that Morgan Schneiderlin didn't feature in either of Manchester United's recent defeats against PSV Eindhoven and Arsenal, or it could prove what his value is to the side.

Either way, it is clear that manager Louis van Gaal didn't believe it was a good idea to start the 25-year-old in the shocking 3-0 rout at the hands of the Gunners last weekend. Instead, he went for Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger, the pair's combined age of 65, to try to press high and interrupt...

Summer acquisitions stand to tip title race in Manchester City's favour

Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has openly discussed a potential move to Major League Soccer after his career with Manchester City.

The purse strings were loosened at Manchester City during the summer with one obviously single-minded goal to the fore: to allow Manuel Pellegrini to improve on what had been deemed City's weak 2014-15 challenge. Enough cash was made available for the Chilean to purchase Fabian Delph, and on a much grander scale, Raheem Sterling and Kevin De Bruyne.

Eight games into the league season and City are top of the table, two points clear of Arsenal and Manchester United in second and third, respectively....

What makes Jurgen Klopp the logical hire for the Liverpool job

The ESPN FC crew talk about managerial troubles in the EPL, starting with Jose Mourinho's downward spiral at Chelsea and making their way to the gaping hole at Anfield where Brendan Rodgers used to be.

Just hours after Brendan Rodgers' sacking was confirmed on Sunday evening, it became clear that there were only two genuine contenders to take the vacant Liverpool post. Football moves quickly these days, and immediate action was required.

When Kenny Dalglish was dismissed three years ago, it was shortly after the Premier League season had finished, and therefore Fenway Sports Group had time to decide upon his successor. Liverpool fans were forced to be patient.

Three years ago, though, there...

Dybala, El Ghazi, Gnoukouri, Minamino, Semedo - Five uncapped stars to watch

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Steve Nicol discuss the recent England call-ups of Danny Ings and Dele Alli. While Nicol understands Ings' inclusion, he cannot quite understand Alli's.

England manager Roy Hodgson caused a bit of stir when he called up 19-year-old Dele Alli to his squad for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania this month. But the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder is not the only promising young player set to get his first taste of senior international action over the next week or so.

Here are five other young and uncapped call-ups to look out for during the international break.

Paulo Dybala | 21 | Forward | Argentina

Dybala refused to follow the lead...

Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp the contenders post Rodgers at Liverpool

ESPN FC's Alexis Nunes and Alejandro Moreno are unsure why Carlo Ancelotti or Jurgen Klopp would move to Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers was sacked as Liverpool manager just hours after a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby last Sunday. He leaves one of the biggest jobs in club football vacant, with big names linked with the post.

Among them are Carlo Ancelotti and Jurgen Klopp, two managerial heavyweights with a glittering CVs and a slew of medals. But who is better suited to Liverpool? Club bloggers Dave Usher and Steven Kelly look at each men's claims to become the new manager ...

Who is the best man for the job?
