Bruce looks to Tigers' old guard

Hull City

Alarm bells sounding for Everton


Win over Toon a distant memory


Steve Bruce looks to Tigers' old guard to overcome Sunderland

Hull City manager Steve Bruce refused to make excuses for his side's 1-0 loss to Swansea City.

Steve Bruce said recently he would place his life in the hands of the promotion winners still amongst his Hull City squad: players such as David Meyler and Stephen Quinn, Liam Rosenior and Sone Aluko, the spirited band of brothers that helped the Tigers reach the Premier League 18 months ago.

Bruce trusted those very same veterans with his future on Boxing Day and how the decision was vindicated. A 3-1 win at Sunderland on Boxing Day not only ended an arduous search for three Premier League points...

Arsenal must rotate their squad as Alexis Sanchez carries the weight

The ESPN FC team preview week 19 of the Premier League as Arsenal square off with West Ham united, while Chelsea face a tough Southampton test.

The problem with a player that is so good is that you become overly reliant on them. Alexis Sanchez was incredible in the 2-1 win against Queens Park Rangers on Boxing Day. He was at the centre of everything: He won a penalty (although missed it), scored, set up another goal and, when Arsenal were trying to run down the clock, he ran himself into the ground closing down the opposition.

No doubt, Sanchez has been magnificent this season. He's scored goals, created goals and won the fans over with...

Brendan Rodgers' management of Mario Balotelli has backfired

The ESPN FC crew respond to your questions in regards to which Premier League player needs to improve, and if Craig Burley will steal Christmas.

"There is no question over his talent -- I have played with him and I know how good he is and how good he can be. It is the job of the Liverpool coach to manage him in the right way. He needs to be loved, he needs direction, but most importantly, he needs to know that the coach believes in him."

-- Andrea Pirlo on Mario Balotelli

Mario Balotelli spent Boxing Day afternoon on the bench at Turf Moor, as his Liverpool team huffed, puffed and scuffled their way to a 1-0 win over Burnley. And according...

Neil Warnock's exit sees Crystal Palace searching for another Tony Pulis

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock was fired up by his team's massive 3-2 victory at Goodison Park.
Neil Warnock won three of his 17 matches in charge of Crystal Palace.

Sometimes Santa Claus does bring you what you want. For a lot of Crystal Palace fans, the only gift worth getting was Neil Warnock losing his job as manager. It might be two days late, but they eventually got their Christmas wish as the Eagles have terminated Warnock's contract, less than 24 hours after the Boxing Day defeat to Southampton.

With a vital trip to QPR on Sunday, Palace supporters woke up to the news on Saturday that the Yorkshireman has lasted just four months in his second stint as...

Tottenham, Man United meet on the cusp of achieving their objectives

The ESPN FC panel preview Week 19's much-anticipated match between Manchester United and Tottenham at White Hart Lane in the Premier League.

Very few associated with Manchester United will recall 2014 as their favourite year. It shall be remembered as the year the club came loose of its bearings, abandoned a devotion to slow-burning stability and broke the bank to try to recover.

Two matches against Tottenham Hotspur will bookend 2014. New Year's Day saw a 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford end a spell of optimism for the troubled, doomed reign of former manager David Moyes. That evening, a befuddled Moyes was forced to admit his team had already...

Alarm bells sound as Stoke loss slides Everton further down the table

Everton crashed to their third home loss of the season against Stoke.

It is the season of goodwill and Everton are revelling in presenting results to the opposition. On this occasion, an increasingly agitated Goodison Park saw Stoke benefit from the home side's generosity and escape with a 1-0 win.

This Boxing Day clash clocked in at 106 minutes and it felt longer still for supporters witnessing a third home defeat of the season, the same amount as the whole of the last campaign.
