Ings to Liverpool may make sense

U.S. starlet Christian Pulisic eager to prove himself at Borussia Dortmund

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol discusses the 25 most important players for the United States, which includes a few younger players such as Julian Green.

When it comes to succeeding at an overseas club, the assimilation game that U.S. prospects must play is an enigma, one that might very well have stumped famed cryptologist Alan Turing. Yet for U.S. under-17 international Christian Pulisic, it's a code that he's determined to crack.

It's a challenge that is complex and full of subtlety. There is an entire culture to adapt to, both in terms of playing and everyday life. The game becomes a job, and not just a passion. Individual clubs and coaches...

Draws dominate in African Nations Cup, but chaotic nature shines through

Ivory Coast manager Herve Renard joked about making Algeria cry ahead of their quarter final in the African Cup of Nations.

If you can see past the draws at the African Nations Cup, the group stage showed where the strength of the continent's football lies, where the rumblings of resurgence are coming from and where the stagnation still stews.

The first of those, where the powerful are, is in the north. Although only two countries from the region are competing in this edition of the tournament, both Tunisia and Algeria will feature in the quarterfinals.

The second, where the power could lie, is among two western heavyweights...

The FC TV panel think the title race could be over if Chelsea win. What do you think? Vote now!

The Premier League's top two teams meet at Stamford Bridge on Saturday and we want to know who you think will be celebrating -- the current leaders or the defending champions?

Who will win?

Hosts Chelsea enter the game with a five-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the table and are unbeaten in the last three league games between the two clubs, the most recent of which was a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium in September.

That day, Andre Schurrle put Jose Mourinho's side in front only for Chelsea's...

Danny Ings' rumoured move to Liverpool must not distract Burnley

Danny Ings' contract at Burnley expires in the summer and he has been linked with a switch to Liverpool this month.

Speculation regarding Danny Ings' future has been in the background all season, but widespread reports that Liverpool are preparing a bid for the striker takes it to a new level.

Ings has shown a remarkably mature ability to ignore all the paper talk and keep his focus on the pitch, but with a possible transfer suddenly a top news story it would be easy and understandable for him to be distracted ahead of a huge match at Sunderland on Saturday.

Van Gaal code proving difficult to break for Manchester United players

ESPN FC's Craig Burley thinks this poor display from the Red Devils is a sign that tough times are on the way.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal says questions over his formations are misplaced, and playing 4-4-2 fails to give his team the right balance.
Manchester United striker Robin van Persie says it is vital for the club to win the FA Cup, which represents their best chance of silverware this season.

When Louis van Gaal receives questions from the media, he usually greets them with a pause, perhaps a nod of acknowledgement, and for testing queries a simple "yes," before delivering his answer in a schoolmasterly but occasionally wild-eyed fashion.

Van Gaal, who is deaf in one ear according to his biographer Hugo Borst, has not taken extra English lessons since arriving at Manchester United. His self-assurance is such that he believes he does not need to, yet cracking "the Van Gaal code" is proving...

David Moyes is like Jose Mourinho, says Real Sociedad's Esteban Granero

David Moyes has done well since arriving at Real Sociedad.

Few players in football have worked under as many top managers as Esteban Granero. Still only 27, the former Real Madrid starlet has already taken tactical instructions and listened to motivational speeches from the likes of Michael Laudrup, Manuel Pellegrini, Jose Mourinho, Harry Redknapp and now David Moyes at Real Sociedad.

Granero's winding career path has already taken him through the Bernabeu youth system, a breakout spell at Getafe, three up-and-down seasons in the Madrid first team, a less...
