Man City and Pellegrini face five key issues to turn ailing season around

The ESPN FC crew discuss the issues Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini faces.

In considering Wednesday's 1-0 Champions League defeat away to Juventus, Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said his team were in " a difficult moment."

City's last three performances have fallen well below the standards that might be expected of English football's best resourced club, after spending £153.5m in the summer to add to already opulent resources. Last Saturday's 4-1 home defeat to Liverpool was described by Pellegrini as "a complete disaster," and the week before he oversaw...

Will Chelsea's mini-revival continue against Spurs?

The ESPN FC panel discuss Diego Costa's poor goal-scoring form this season.

Tottenham and Chelsea head could not have started their 2015-16 Premier League campaigns any differently. ESPN FC takes a look at the five biggest questions ahead of Saturday's crunch match.

1. Will Chelsea's mini-revival continue?

It has been a calamitous season for Chelsea, but the last couple of games have offered a hint of hope. Their performances in the last two games, wins over Norwich and Maccabi Tel Aviv, while still not exactly being entirely convincing, suggest Jose Mourinho might be able...

Pardew palaver in Palace vs. Newcastle but Eagles need home comforts

Crystal Palace boss Alan Pardew faces former club Newcastle United this week.

All eyes will be on Alan Pardew during Saturday's game between Crystal Palace and Newcastle and that's exactly how he likes it. The Eagles boss is absolutely fine at courting attention and after a tumultuous five years at St James' Park, everyone will be keen to see what sort of reaction he gets from the Magpies fans and what he gives back.

But all the Pardew palaver is only going to distract from the real issue for Palace -- they don't score enough goals. Only four teams have let in fewer goals...

Norwich and Alex Neil will respect Arsenal but will test Wenger's men

Norwich battled at Chelsea last time out but Alex Neil's men came away with a 1-0 defeat.

Alex Neil has hailed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as a visionary but the Norwich City boss aims to dent Arsenal's title charge in Sunday's Premier League duel.

The youngest top flight manager, 34, faces the senior statesman at Carrow Road with Neil convinced the Frenchman is still the gold standard for his precarious profession.

Wenger has endured plenty of criticism from sections of Arsenal's support for his failure to land the title in recent years or turn his club into genuine Champions League...

Southampton clash a potential defining moment for Pellegrini

Manchester City face Southampton on Saturday having slipped to third in the Premier League.

All is not well at Manchester City. Injuries have gutted the team of its best and most crucial players and Manuel Pellegrini has made some baffling decisions with regards to tactics and team selection.

The two defeats, to Liverpool and Juventus, in the space of four days means City have fallen off the top of the Premier League as well as their Champions League group.

Pellegrini oversaw the worst home result in more than a decade last Saturday. The 4-1 loss at the hands of Liverpool was an embarrassment...

Arsenal and Everton players key to fantasy success this week

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman looks at upcoming match against Manchester City, saying both sides have problems.
Leicester City manager praises his star striker Jamie Vardy ahead of their top-of-the-table clash with Manchester United.

Many observers will be watching Jamie Vardy (£7.7m) attempt to set a new Premier League record by scoring in his 11th consecutive match this weekend.

History and a Manchester United defence that has kept four clean sheets in the past five gameweeks stand in his way.

As a result, ESPN FC Premier Fantasy managers could be excused for looking elsewhere for better chances of bigger points.

Here's a few places to start your search.
