Bournemouth reach Premier League promised land against all the odds

The ESPN FC crew respond to Bournemouth's historic 3-0 win over Bolton, which now sees Eddie Howe's side set to move onto the Premier League next season for the first time in their 116-year history.

Monday's scenes of enraptured celebration at AFC Bournemouth's bijou Dean Court ground were the lifting of what had become a gripping tension. Eddie Howe, the club's fresh-faced but flinty manager, revealed how he had side-stepped the pressure his team have been under since beginning an early season push for Championship promotion.

"I honestly didn't start thinking it; you don't want to think it is possible," he explained after beating Bolton 3-0 in front of a capacity crowd. "You work every day...

Wenger and Arsenal can learn from Chelsea ahead of next season

The ESPN FC team discuss who, if anyone, can challenge Chelsea for the Premier League title next season. Ian Darke believes Arsenal may be best fit to challenge.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley sounds off on comments that Jose Mourinho's Chelsea play a "boring" style of play, as Burley explains the writing was on the wall when Cesc Fabregas chose Chelsea over Arsenal.

Although Arsenal were spared the ignominy of seeing Chelsea formally clinch the Premier League title at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday, they could have been forgiven for forming an impromptu guard of honour at full-time. The 0-0 result confirmed what everybody already knew: Chelsea will be champions.

Curiously, despite sitting joint-second in the table, Arsenal have never really been in the title race. Theirs has been a season of two halves, the first of which was verging upon shambolic.

Alexandre Lacazette facing tough choice over Lyon future

Lyon head coach admits he's dreaming of the Ligue 1 title after seeing his side go top of the table with just four games remaining.

The world's top forwards exist on two separate planets: One is inhabited by Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo; one contains everybody else, the mortal beings which include the likes of Luis Suarez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gareth Bale, Diego Costa, Carlos Tevez, Sergio Aguero, Neymar, Eden Hazard, Wayne Rooney and Alexandre Lacazette.

I know, it is a bit early to include the Lyon striker amongst this list of top European talent in terms of experience, standing and profile, but take out the two superstars...

Leicester can make Premier League statement with Chelsea to come

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho expressed his belief that Leicester City will remain in the Premier League come the end of the season.
Nigel Pearson's Leicester City are in the unenviable position of sitting bottom at Christmas.
Nigel Pearson has overseen a fine run, but Chelsea will be a different test.

With four wins from four games, Leicester are the form side in the Premier League, but few will expect them to take anything off Chelsea. A shock victory for the Foxes will in all likelihood move them just one win away from safety, but there will also be no shame in defeat to the league leaders and champions-elect.

Chelsea won't be complacent; Jose Mourinho's sides rarely are. After only drawing 0-0 with Arsenal, the visitors can't now secure the title at the King Power Stadium and know more dropped...

Man Utd starting to look beyond David De Gea, as Victor Valdes waits

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says the club have made a huge contract offer to goalkeeper David de Gea, but the final decision is the Spain international's alone.

As Manchester United's season draws to a close, it is increasingly unclear whether David De Gea will remain at the club next season. Despite Louis van Gaal stating that the Spain international goalkeeper has been offered a large new contract, the player himself has remained notably silent on the issue. Certainly, this stance has caused concern among many United supporters, who see Real Madrid looming on the horizon, credit card at the ready.

Many would understand De Gea's desire to return to the...

Stoke keeper Sorensen to mark retirement with epic US cycle ride

Sorensen has only made one appearance for Stoke this season
Thomas Sorensen will exchange his boots for cycling cleats.

Veteran goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen has announced that he's calling it a day at the end of the current season and retiring after 22 long years in the saddle.

Currently entering into the final few months of his ever-dwindling Stoke City contract, the 38-year-old Danish stopper has vowed to mark his retirement by "giving something back" -- duly announcing that he plans to cycle some 4,000 miles across the United States in the summer all in the name of charity.

Indeed, Sorensen tweeted the details of...
