Five questions for new China boss Lippi


Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge

50-50 Challenge

Tottenham fail to take chances in draw against Bournemouth

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says Spurs need to capitalise in order to push for this year's Premier League crown.
Tottenham missed an opportunity to go top of the Premier League after they were held by a resilient Bournemouth.
Eddie Howe cannot praise Bournemouth enough for their attacking attitude against Tottenham.
Mauricio Pochettino says in order for Spurs to challenge for the league title, they must start capitalising.

BOURNEMOUTH, England -- Three points on Tottenham's 0-0 draw at Bournemouth as Spurs failed to take their chances in the Premier League.

1. Tottenham miss their chance

If Tottenham have ambitions of finishing the season as the best team in the Premier League, at some point they will need to top the table. Spurs challenged for the title last season but they trailed Leicester City from the opening day, and twice missed opportunities to leapfrog the Foxes, albeit temporarily.

On Thursday, Mauricio...

Roma stadium silence in spotlight as Palermo visit the Stadio Olimpico

Roma's Radja Nainggolan reacts to his team giving up two late goals and conceding a draw to Austria Vienna.
Roma's fans will at least make themselves heard on Sunday.

Roma's bizarre 3-3 draw with Austria Vienna in the Europa League on Thursday night was notable for two things: firstly, the time-honoured Giallorosso collapse when two goals to the good, throwing away a deserved, Francesco Totti-inspired 3-1 lead in two maddening second half minutes; secondly, the pitiful crowd of around 16,500, which apart from the boisterous 2,000 away supporters rattled silently around the Stadio Olimpico like painted fans in a Subbuteo stadium.

The noise and smoke made by the...

China appoint Marcello Lippi: Five question for former Italy boss

Marcello Lippi will be expected to use his wealth of experience to improve China's standing.

Marcello Lippi, who led Italy to glory at the 2006 World Cup, has just taken over as China's national team coach. It is perhaps inevitable that the country that desperately wants to challenge at future World Cups has turned to a man who has already won one.

The former Juventus and Guangzhou Evergrande boss has lifted plenty more silverware besides, but this job could be his most challenging yet. ESPN FC has five questions for the new boss to answer.

1. What about qualification for the 2018 World...

Real Salt Lake seek surprising MLS playoff berth, despite recent dip in form's Jillian Sakovits takes us through the wild western conference scenarios ahead of Decision Day.

By almost any measure, the 2016 MLS season has been a success for Real Salt Lake, a team from which not a lot was expected after it missed the playoffs last year for just the second time since 2007. Then Jeff Cassar's aging squad, one that appeared on the brink of a rebuild, surprised out of the gates by winning four of their first six games. They've comfortably occupied a postseason spot in the standings ever since -- not bad for a team that finished ninth in the Western Conference 12 months...

50-50 Challenge: Chelsea host Man United as Mourinho makes his return

The Exploding Heads preview Jose Mourinho's homecoming, but will he get stung on his return to Stamford Bridge?
The ESPN FC crew have little faith in Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte sending their squads out to attack on Sunday.

As if games between Chelsea and Manchester United are not already big enough, this Sunday's showdown features the return of one Jose Mourinho to the ground at which he was a managerial legend during two spells in charge.

Mark Worrall (Chelsea) and Musa Okwonga (Manchester United) preview the match.

Mark, what sort of reception will Mourinho get from the home fans?

MW: A couple of refrains of "Jose Mourinho, Jose Mourinho" at best which will soon be replaced with jocular jibes of "sit down Mourinho"...

LIVERPOOL, England -- Liverpool Under-23 captain Harry Wilson is facing a crucial campaign in his career. The 19-year-old is most well known for becoming Wales' youngster-ever international at 16 years and 208 days back in 2013. Now he is hoping this can be the season in which he fulfils his promised potential, following a disappointing 2015-16 campaign that was blighted by injury due to a broken toe and featured an unsuccessful loan spell to Crewe Alexandra.

The staff at Liverpool's academy are...
