MAN UNITEDRomelu Lukaku knows Manchester United fans "meant well with their songs" but hopes everyone can move on from chanting that Kick It Out called "racist."

-The likes of Amazon and Facebook will "absolutely" enter the bidding war when the next round of Premier League television rights come up for tender, according to Manchester United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Premier League Predictions: Man United's Southampton test

The ESPN FC crew predict the weekend's matches in the Premier League.

There's some tricky-looking away fixtures for Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham this weekend.

Spurs travel to West Ham in Saturday's early kickoff while Manchester United face a trip to Southampton, Chelsea take on Stoke at the bet365 Stadium and Liverpool are at Leicester, the scene of their 2-0 Carabao Cup exit in midweek.

Elsewhere, Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace have a daunting trip to Manchester City and Arsenal host West Brom on Monday evening. Who will come out on top in...

No. 10s come in all shapes, sizes and styles in Premier League

ESPN spent a day behind the scenes at Everton to find out why they are the "people's club."

Just in case you'd managed to forget about him, former Tottenham and Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood emerged from the shadows this week to provide his views on youth football in a television debate show. One of his complaints, among many others, was that too many youth footballers in England consider themselves No. 10s.

This was a particularly peculiar complaint considering one of English football's failings over the past few decades is the inability to produce talented, creative, gifted No. 10s...

Which clubs set goal-difference records in Europe's biggest leagues?

After their unbeaten start to the 2017/18 Premier League season, Stewart Robson explains why Manchester United are favourites for the title.
Ale Moreno says Man City's abundance of talent and squad depth is why they're such heavy favourites to win the league.

Manchester United and Manchester City have started the season in blistering goalscoring form. Both have a goal difference of +17, and if they keep up the current pace then they'll finish the season north of +100. That would be a record, so here are the goal difference records for seven of Europe's top leagues:

England, Premier League/First Division: Chelsea, 2009-10, +71

In the 41 years since goal difference was adopted in England over goal average, there have been many great teams, teams...

Chelsea's Alvaro Morata will prove he can be Diego Costa's successor

Extra Time is all about Diego Costa as the guys respond to your tweets about the Spanish striker's return to Atletico Madrid.

In last weekend's goalless draw at Stamford Bridge, something strange happened: Arsenal outmuscled and outhustled Chelsea, winning battles all over the pitch. Had they been able to combine their running with a little more cunning, Arsene Wenger's men would have left the home of their London rivals with their first victory since October 2011.

As Chelsea searched for an explanation, many observers pointed to Diego Costa's absence. The Spain international embodied Chelsea's physical, ruthless and occasionally...

Manchester United's goalscoring subs could prove the difference in title race

Sergio Romero denied Manolo Gabbiadini from the penalty spot as Southampton and Man United drew 0-0 in May.
Steve Nicol finds himself agreeing with Mou's comments that Marouane Fellaini deserves a new United contract this season.

Anthony Martial has scored half as many league goals as fourth-place Newcastle. He has more than Everton, Swansea and, of course, goalless Crystal Palace. He has three which, respectable as it is, would not be remarkable but for one fact: they have all come as a substitute.

The Frenchman is averaging a goal every 21 minutes as a replacement in the top flight this season. It is an unsustainable return, just as it is nigh-on impossible that Manchester United will carry on averaging a goal a game...
