Blunt Sunderland desperately need January transfer activity

Fabian Delph saw red for Aston Villa but a blunt Sunderland side failed to find a way through the 10 men.

If Sunderland manager Gus Poyet needed one last argument to clinch his case for money to be spent on creativity and finishing power, a flat goalless draw against Aston Villa -- Sunderland's sixth of the season -- surely provided it.

The failure to break down Villa, a poor side made poorer with the dismissal of Fabian Delph early in the second half, was little short of lamentable.

Although Jordi Gomez hit a Villa post and a frantic goalmouth scramble almost led to a Sunderland goal, the home side...

Three Points: Manchester City vs. Burnley

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Ashley Barnes (81') Manchester City 2-2 Burnley

MANCHESTER, England -- Three quick thoughts from Manchester City's shock 2-2 draw with Burnley at the Etihad.

1. City blow their chance

Just when Manchester City looked likely to go within a point of Chelsea, they turned in 45 minutes of listlessness and inertia to put the whip hand firmly back in Jose Mourinho's possession. Burnley fought back valiantly, and fully deserved a point that was beyond the expectation of all but their ever-positive manager Sean Dyche.

Two goals down, Burnley were lifted...

Three Points: Arsenal belie familiar faults to beat West Ham

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Danny Welbeck goal (44') West Ham United 0-2 Arsenal

LONDON -- A trio of observations on Arsenal's 2-1 win at West Ham in the Premier League.

1. Arsenal show some spirit

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is very keen on emphasising his side's "spirit" and that his players' mental toughness is much more apparent than many outside observers might believe.

The evidence has suggested otherwise at times, with the number of Arsenal defeats against the Premier League's big teams -- both in terms of quality of opponent and physical size of players -- indicating...

Player Ratings: Cazorla continues his run as Arsenal's danger man

Santi Cazorla won and converted a penalty as Arsenal edged past West Ham 2-1 at Upton Park.

Arsenal held on to pick up an impressive 2-1 win in an enthralling encounter against West Ham at Upton Park. We're in to FA Cup season and this match had all the frenzy and excitement of a classic cup tie.

West Ham had appeared to be in control of the game's early stages, but two Arsenal goals in the last four minutes of the first-half put the Gunners in the driving seat. First, Santi Cazorla won and converted a spot kick, then Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain capped a fine run with a driven cross which...

Player Ratings: Eden Hazard shines again but Chelsea slip at Saints

Cesc Fabregas assisted in a fine performance for Chelsea but the Blues couldn't get past Southampton in their 1-1 draw.

A frustrating afternoon for Chelsea saw two points dropped against Southampton with the match finishing 1-1 at St Mary's.

Chelsea will justifiably point to a dreadful decision from referee Anthony Taylor that saw Cesc Fabregas booked for simulation despite clearly being tripped in the penalty area by Matt Targett. Whether the spot kick would have been converted is another question, though given Eden Hazard's sparkling form, it is fair to suggest that the official's blunder cost Chelsea the victory.

Three Points: Southampton vs. Chelsea

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley reiterates that the Premier League is not a one-horse race following Chelsea's 1-1 draw at Southampton.

SOUTHAMPTON, England -- Three quick thoughts from Chelsea's 1-1 draw against top-four contenders Southampton at St. Mary's Stadium on Sunday.

1. One point gained, two points lost

This was a breakthrough result for a hard-working Southampton side as they finally claimed some success against one of the Premier League's big hitters. On the other hand, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho could only conclude this was a missed opportunity for his title chasers to secure a huge victory.

A flat and somewhat-jaded...
