Three Points: Chelsea ease to victory vs. West Ham

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Diego Costa (62') Chelsea 2-0 West Ham

LONDON -- John Terry and Diego Costa scored as Chelsea enjoyed a comfortable win over West Ham. Here's a trio of observations on Chelsea's 2-0 victory in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

1. Chelsea are back in the groove

Boxing Day's game was effectively wrapped up when Diego Costa, seizing onto Eden Hazard's pass after Cheikhou Kouyate had given the ball away, sent three defenders in one direction with a swerve of the hips and flashed an irresistible second goal across Adrian with his left foot....

Player Ratings: Terry impresses as Chelsea cruise past West Ham

John Terry scored the opener as Chelsea eased to a 2-0 win at home to West Ham.

Chelsea brushed aside West Ham United with consummate ease at Stamford Bridge, strolling to a comfortable 2-0 victory and maintaining their position as Premier League title favourites.

The Blues have a 100 percent record at the Bridge in the league this season, and from the first few minutes of this festive London derby it was clear that record was not under any real threat from the Hammers.

Jose Mourinho's men did have to be patient for their first goal. Sam Allardyce's team did not park the bus,...

Top Tenner: Best Boxing Day clashes

The ESPN FC panel debate whether or not Premier League players should have the holidays off like other top leagues around Europe.

Top Tenner picks out a selection of the best Boxing Day fixtures on offer over the years.

10. Liverpool 3-0 Manchester United, 1978

United became the first English side to do the treble of the league title, the FA Cup and the European Cup in 1999, but Liverpool very nearly managed it 22 years earlier. They were denied by United, who beat them in the FA Cup final through a Jimmy Greenhoff goal, so Bob Paisley's side were out for revenge, and got it 19 months later. United were carved apart...

Rewind to Boxing Day 1963: The story of 66 goals in 10 matches

On Boxing Day 1963, in the midst of the "Big Freeze," the English First Division experienced a glut of goals unlike anything before. In total, 66 were scored in the 10 matches in the top flight, while across all four divisions 160 were netted, with seven players bagging hat tricks and four men sent off.

On one of the most incredible days of football, the watching public speculate loudly whether or not the players had enjoyed Christmas Day a little too much and the Daily Mirror's Harry Miller...

Lampard set for Man City stay, Milner on for free Liverpool move?

The ESPN FC crew select their best and worst transfers of 2014, with signs pointing to Liverpool's Mario Balotelli.

If you're not slumbering after a Christmas dinner demolition, then read on to find out all the latest January window gossip with Transfer Talk.

Lampard loan extension edges closer

With all three of his senior strikers -- Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic -- out injured, Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is desperate for goal scorers, though it looks as if one Christmas wish may have been granted, as the Daily Mirror reports Frank Lampard will extend his loan contract.

Lacklustre Leicester need to make home advantage count against Spurs

Nigel Pearson will look to get Leicester City pointed back in the right direction against West Brom.
Nigel Pearson has to stay true to his first XI and get some consistency going.

Leicester desperately need a win against Tottenham on Boxing Day. The Foxes have lost their way at home, and if they don't make the King Power Stadium a fortress, they will stand no chance of avoiding the drop.

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino dubbed Leicester an "unlucky side": He believes the table isn't reflective of how well Nigel Pearson's side have played.

I quite fervently disagree. Leicester are rock bottom for a reason. They haven't been clinical in front of goal. This was apparent even during...
