Explaining Eden Hazard's mediocre Chelsea form to start Prem campaign

ESPN FC's Craig Burley says that Eden Hazard's stellar season last year may have the Chelsea winger feeling a bit complacent.

No team has defended its Premier League title since 2009, when Manchester United followed their 2007-08 domestic triumph with a repeat in 2008-09. Given that trend, it should perhaps come as little surprise that reigning champions Chelsea have struggled to follow last season's success early in the 2015-16 campaign.

That said, the sheer ineptitude of some of Chelsea's play has stunned supporters of the club and neutral observers in equal measure. The reasons for their slump have already been debated...

Anthony Martial's transfer fee proves Man United are gambling on potential

The ESPN FC panel discuss Louis van Gaal and Manchester United's decision to spend big money on an unproven, 19-year old player from Monaco, Anthony Martial.

On his way to Clairefontaine on Monday morning -- an hour's drive south of Paris -- to meet the France squad for the first time in his career, 19-year-old Anthony Martial drove past Les Ulis, the little town where he grew up on the outskirts of the French capital.

From the motorway, he could see the big housing projects that form the town where, as a kid, he used to play football for hours on the concrete with his mates. Patrice Evra and Thierry Henry are also from there. And, surely, on the...

Harry Redknapp avoids gazebo while filming transfer analysis videos

Transfer deadline day just wouldn't be transfer deadline day without Harry Redknapp pitching up and nattering away at great length about just how good the likes of Peter "Crouchy" or Jermain "Defoey" or Niko "Kranjcary" really are.

However, rather than the "Range Rover door" setup he usually favours, the currently jobless 'Arry decided to wander down to an abandoned, boatyard, where he would run the rule over the morning's various comings and goings. And indeed, everything was pottering along nicely...

De Gea, Martial and Man United show the panic deadline day can induce

France coach Didier Deschamps says Manchester United-bound Anthony Martial has great potential.
France coach Didier Deschamps says Manchester United-bound Anthony Martial has great potential.

The transfer window and when it should end is a divisive issue among managers. Some bosses, such as West Brom's Tony Pulis, believe it should shut before the season starts.

Others, as Sam Allardyce commented a few weeks ago, enjoy the chance to assess the players at their disposal in live games for a few weeks before finalising their squad.

One thing's for sure -- deadline day focuses the mind. Like an ill-prepared student whose exam time sneaks up on them or a tax return that has been sitting on...

Germany and Poland bring back World Cup '74 memories and the water battle

Germany and Poland's second-round clash at the World Cup in 1974 was notable for the dreadful pitch conditions.

When Germany play Poland in Frankfurt in European Championship 2016 qualifying on Friday, many memories will come flooding back -- and you'll see in a second why this is a pun.

The two sides have met many times over the years but one match towers above the rest: the World Cup game in Frankfurt on July 3, 1974.

Germans call it "die Wasserschlacht", the water battle, while it's "mecz na wodzie" for the Poles, the water game. It's sometimes referred to as the semifinal, but it was in fact the teams'...

Malaysia change defensive shape to limit damage in World Cup qualifiers

ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and Alistair Edwards preview AFC World Cup qualifying action involving Singapore, Malaysia and Australia.

Malaysia's group in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers contains three strong teams who appeared at the 2015 AFC Asian Cup, two of whom could embarrass them over the next week.

After just a point from their opening two home games, including a 6-0 humbling by Palestine, Harimau Malaya travel to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), before hosting Saudi Arabia.

Here are three thoughts from Kuala Lumpur about the games ahead:

1. Malaysia must tighten up defensively

Six-goal maulings in Oman and against Palestine...
