West Ham's London Stadium issues laid bare after Chelsea trouble

Liam Twomey describes the scenes at London Stadium after violence escalated between West Ham and Chelsea supporters in the EFL Cup.

The London Stadium's first major test collapsed into near-chaos. West Ham's 2-1 win over Chelsea in the EFL Cup on Wednesday night saw Slaven Bilic's team put in their best performance at their new home and yet the club was left defending a night of ugly crowd scenes -- with seven arrests made so far and a Football Association investigation launched.

Without the outbreak of violence that took place in the Sir Trevor Brooking Stand as Chelsea fans made for the exit just before full-time, the evening...

Shoots of recovery at Hull City following midweek EFL Cup success

Harry Maguire and Michael Dawson provided the goals in Hull's win on Tuesday.
Hull City got back to winning ways with victory in the EFL Cup over Bristol City.

Every recovery needs a first step and Hull City will hope theirs was made under the Ashton Gate floodlights on Tuesday night. Fortunes in the EFL Cup are unlikely to define a season but a 2-1 win at Bristol City was not short on significance.

"You can see in the dressing room that a win is a win," said head coach Mike Phelan. "It means a lot for confidence. We've shown we can football matches again."

Repeating the trick at Watford on Saturday will be an altogether stiffer test than squeezing past...

Sunderland fans almost at rock bottom as David Moyes' tenure gets worse

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether time is running out for David Moyes at Sunderland.

Sunderland manager David Moyes is under heavy scrutiny as an atrocious start to the season threatens to become worse with Saturday's visit from Arsenal.

Just nine Premier League games into his Stadium of Light career, the former Everton and Manchester United boss has dismayed many supporters with negative talk and negative tactics.

Who will win?

Message boards and fan sites were already awash with hostile comments about his tenure before the predictable midweek exit from the EFL Cup at Southampton.

It may have...

Spurs have worries up front but Dembele and Eriksen must improve too

The ESPN FC crew discuss Tottenham's clash with Leicester.

Tottenham fans will treat Tuesday's 2-1 EFL Cup defeat to Liverpool as an outlier.

Of the starting XI, only Eric Dier had appeared in the previous weekend's Premier League game, the 0-0 draw at Bournemouth. Those fans who had made the 400 mile round trip to Anfield might not have liked it but Mauricio Pochettino's intentions were clear. If he could have squeezed out a result with a second XI then that's all well and good, but if his team were knocked out then it was no great loss. Spurs have more...

Why the NFL shouldn't be an economic model for the Champions League

The Champions League could never follow an NFL model but some owners would love to see UEFA try.

The Champions League revamp announced this past August, with Europe's four top-ranked leagues guaranteed 16 of the 32 spots, caused many to complain about polarization, greed and the one-percenters sticking it not just to the little guys (that happened a long time ago), but to the game's middle classes as well.

UEFA were caught between a rock (Europe's big clubs wanted even more allowances from wild-card entries to games on weekends) and a hard place (if they didn't get what they wanted, some...

Pep Guardiola, in worst slump of his career, will stick to his plan at Man City

With Manchester City now winless in six matches, Stewart Robson says questions could be asked of Pep Guardiola.

Pep Guardiola was treated like footballing royalty when he arrived in England. Manchester City had got their man and surely success was only a heartbeat away. Here was the coach whose style and sophistication on and off the pitch would make City the envy of their rivals.

In fairness, Pep himself was the first to say it was not going to be that simple while other managers -- notably Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp -- warned him that the Premier League was a more demanding beast than most.

Of course, City...
