Bruce looks to Tigers' old guard

Hull City

Alarm bells sounding for Everton


Win over Toon a distant memory


Prospect of heavy defeat staring Burnley in the face

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and Burnley manager Sean Dyche were both pleased in the Reds' 1-0 defeat of Burnley.

Manchester City away is not the kind of fixture Burnley manager Sean Dyche will be expecting his team to get anything from, as a visit to the defending champions is perhaps the season's toughest match.

Burnley go into Sunday's game on a slightly wobbly run of form and have only won once in their last five, despite improved performances. It seems unlikely that they will pull off a shock against a City team that have won nine in a row in all competitions.

Even without an available senior striker,...

Chivas returnee Marco Fabian has his own slick website, over one million followers on Twitter and has opened his own academy for local Guadalajara youngsters.

Chelsea hold no fear for Saints after thrashing of Crystal Palace

Sadio Mane celebrates his goal with Ronald Koeman.

With Jose Mourinho coming to St. Mary's on Sunday, it was important that Southampton got a positive result at Selhurst Park on Boxing Day, and they did just that.

In an all-round pleasing 3-0 display, that has seen the end of Neil Warnock's reign at Crystal Palace, there were a lot of positives to take into the somewhat more daunting challenge of Premier League leaders Chelsea.

In particular the performance of man of the match Sadio Mane was extremely satisfying. Having looked a world-beater in...

Steve Bruce looks to Tigers' old guard to overcome Sunderland

Hull City manager Steve Bruce refused to make excuses for his side's 1-0 loss to Swansea City.

Steve Bruce said recently he would place his life in the hands of the promotion winners still among his Hull City squad: players such as David Meyler and Stephen Quinn, Liam Rosenior and Sone Aluko, the spirited band of brothers that helped the Tigers reach the Premier League 18 months ago.

Bruce trusted those very same veterans with his future on Boxing Day, and how the decision was vindicated. A 3-1 win at Sunderland on Boxing Day not only ended an arduous search for three Premier League points...

Arsenal must rotate their squad as Alexis Sanchez carries the weight

The ESPN FC team preview Week 19 of the Premier League as Arsenal square off with West Ham United, while Chelsea face a tough Southampton test.

The problem with a player that is so good is that you become overly reliant on him. Alexis Sanchez was incredible in Arsenal's 2-1 win against Queens Park Rangers on Boxing Day. He was at the centre of everything: He won a penalty (although missed it), scored, set up another goal, and when Arsenal were trying to run down the clock, he ran himself into the ground closing down the opposition.

No doubt, Sanchez has been magnificent this season. He's scored goals, created goals and won the fans over...

Brendan Rodgers' management of Mario Balotelli has backfired

The ESPN FC crew respond to your questions in regards to which Premier League player needs to improve, and if Craig Burley will steal Christmas.

"There is no question over his talent -- I have played with him and I know how good he is and how good he can be. It is the job of the Liverpool coach to manage him in the right way. He needs to be loved, he needs direction, but most importantly, he needs to know that the coach believes in him."

-- Andrea Pirlo on Mario Balotelli

Mario Balotelli spent Boxing Day afternoon on the bench at Turf Moor, as his Liverpool team huffed, puffed and scuffled their way to a 1-0 win over Burnley. And according...
