Leicester keep passing Premier League title race's tests, plus: Barca win ugly

The ESPN FC panel weigh in on the SPI indicating that Leicester City are now Premier League title favourites.

You might recall that Leicester were going to be exposed as frauds with that tough run of games beginning around Thanksgiving. Matches against Everton, Swansea and Liverpool away; Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City at home. They went into that cycle top of the Premier League and after three wins, two draws and one defeat, they emerged at the other side still top albeit jointly with Arsenal, who had a slightly better goal difference.

That's when we should have known that no, they're...

Roma grateful to Wojciech Szczesny after win over Sampdoria

Florenzi Roma celeb 160207
Roma are back in contention for the top three in Serie A following Sunday's win over Sampdoria.

Roma moved within touching distance of the Champions League places when they scraped past Sampdoria 2-1 on Sunday, but coach Luciano Spalletti is struggling to do away with some old flaws that he no doubt remembers from his first spell in the Italian capital.

A neat header from Alessandro Florenzi on the stroke of half-time and a superb Diego Perotti volley four minutes after the break put Roma in a commanding position, but despite dominating and creating enough to look like putting four or five...

Leicester title push continues but Tottenham are equally well-placed

The ESPN FC panel weigh in on the SPI indicating that Leicester City are now Premier League title favourites.
The ESPN FC crew present their Team of the Weekend for the 25th round of matches in the English Premier League.

Let the rest of soccer-loving mankind revel in Leicester City's little-fox-who-could fairytale season. Me, I'm trying to stave off impending doom: for the first time since the Jurassic era, Spurs are looking down on Arsenal in the Premier League table, albeit purely on goal differential. Still, given that it's Spurs, the other North London club that has kept to its place (usually fifth or sixth) over the years, that's sufficient to send any Dennis Bergkamp jersey-wearing Gooner to the nearest pub...

Hiddink's turgid football and Hazard approach frustrates Chelsea fans

Guus Hiddink says Chelsea have drawn too many matches during his spell as interim manager.

While Diego Costa's injury-time goal against Manchester United in Sunday's 1-1 draw preserved Chelsea's unbeaten record under interim manager Guus Hiddink, yet another draw left many supporters feeling frustrated by the Dutchman's overcautious approach.

It's true that the London club's fortunes have turned for the better since the dismissal of Jose Mourinho -- but with Hiddink's strategy seemingly focused on avoiding defeat rather than pursuing victory, particularly in the Premier League, the question...

Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi both fail to score

The ESPN FC crew discuss what's been causing Cristiano Ronaldo to under-perform against the big and small teams.

Each week, ESPN FC projects and reviews the scoring battle between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo in La Liga.

Current goals total in La Liga: Ronaldo 19-12 Messi

It's as you were in Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi's Spanish league scoring battle after both men failed to find the net on Sunday, despite being projected to score.

Ronaldo was off-target with each of the three shots he took in Real Madrid's 2-1 win at Granada.

Meanwhile, Messi had a goal disallowed as Barcelona won 2-0 at Levante...

Liverpool fans reflect on protest at Anfield amid fury over ticket increases

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner discusses the impact of Liverpool fans walking out of Anfield on 77 minutes last Saturday.

Both of ESPN FC's Liverpool bloggers, Dave Usher and Steven Kelly, were at Anfield on Saturday and they took part in the mass walk out after 77 minutes.

Were the Liverpool fans right to walk out?

We asked them what it was all about ...

So, why did you walk out?

Dave Usher: Because Liverpool want to increase gate receipts by £2 million even though Premier League clubs are about to receive a huge windfall from the new TV deal. Ticket prices are already extortionate, and this was an opportunity for the club to reward fan loyalty by lowering...
