A little bit of luck would go a long way for Palace

Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock criticised referee Phil Dowd for disallowing James McArthur's goal in Palace's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City.

They say there are two things in life you need to be successful: hard work and a little bit of luck. Palace have the first thing in spades but seem to be seriously lacking in the other one at the moment.

In recent weeks the team has played fairly well but has come away from games with little to show for it. The reason for that has been a combination of some poor finishing, a bit of sloppy defending and just some good old fashioned bad luck. Against Tottenham two weeks ago and in the second half...

Christmas cancelled on Tyneside after Toon's hurtful loss to Sunderland

Adam Johnson struck late on as Sunderland inflicted more derby day misery on Newcastle.

Things can only get better for Newcastle United going into the festive period -- but let's be honest, after another gut-wrenching defeat to Sunderland, it can't get much worse.

The Magpies were supposed to put things right in the Tyne-Wear derby three games ago when they headed to the Stadium of Light in September 2013 after Paolo Di Canio's team had trounced United on home turf.

Well, in a fixture United fans hate losing, we're still waiting for that revenge mission from Alan Pardew. The Newcastle...

Liverpool, Arsenal frailties all too familiar in sloppy draw

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley breaks down all the drama at Anfield, which culminated with Martin Skrtel's stoppage-time equaliser that earned Liverpool a draw against Arsenal.

LIVERPOOL, England -- The significance of the injury time referee Michael Oliver was adding would become apparent later, but as Martin Skrtel had his head bandaged, the travelling Arsenal fans turned their attention to another of the Liverpool defence.

They addressed Kolo Toure, a stalwart of Arsene Wenger's most famous team. "You are Invincible," they chorused. Indeed Toure was, as part of an Arsenal side that completed the 2003-04 season without a league loss.

A decade on, both Toure's current...

Swansea must get Gomis up to speed ahead of Bony's exit in January

Swansea City manager Garry Monk hailed his side's resilience after a 1-0 win against Hull City.

Hull's misery continued Saturday as Swansea chalked up their first-ever win at the KC Stadium. Here are three observations from the game:

All change

It was a surprise to see Swansea coach Garry Monk make seven changes to the team that battled so hard in the 2-1 defeat to Tottenham last week. Apparently three players who started in that match -- Jefferson Montero, Gylfi Sigurdsson and Leon Britton -- all picked up minor knocks and weren't risked against Hull.

Hull had a makeshift team of their own,...

Player Ratings: Strong performers for resolute Liverpool vs. Arsenal

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley breaks down all the drama at Anfield, which culminated with Martin Skrtel's stoppage-time equaliser that earned Liverpool a draw against Arsenal.

Liverpool showed great character to come from behind to earn a 2-2 draw against a disappointing Arsenal side in an incident-packed game at Anfield. The Reds dominated from start to finish and were good value for at least a point.

Not even substitute Fabio Borini's sending off could slow Liverpool down as they piled forward looking for an equaliser, which eventually arrived when Martin Skrtel's towering header seven minutes into stoppage time found the bottom corner in front of a delighted Kop end.
