Swansea should be able to build on last week's 1-0 victory over Hull, a timely but scrappy win which halted a two-game slide. Villa held Manchester United to a 1-1 draw, so the visitors might just have the psychological...

ESPN FC's John Wilkinson and Fay Hokulani break down Malaysia's performance in the AFF Suzuki Cup final where they fell 4-3 on aggregate to Thailand.

Defying the doomsayers and proving the critics wrong, Malaysia came within 10 minutes of winning their second AFF title before conceding two late goals in the second leg of 2014 Suzuki Cup final against Thailand on Dec. 20.

Struggling Everton's turnaround could start against Stoke

Everton manager Roberto Martinez expects a tough Stoke City at Goodison Park as his side tries to recover from their 3-0 defeat to Southampton.

What a difference a year makes. Without dissecting the how and why of it, the raw statistics paint a much-changed picture. This time 12 months ago, Everton had lost just once and sat level on points with Chelsea, just two behind leaders Liverpool. The Toffees possessed a league-high eight clean sheets, conceding just 16 goals in their first 17 matches.

It is 27 goals against this time around -- and the last of three clean sheets arrived against Swansea on Nov. 1-- for a side currently 13 points worse...

Lineker pulls in Pele, Maradona and Mourinho for best man's speech

Being the good sort he is, Gary Lineker went above and beyond the call of duty in his efforts to cobble together a best man's speech ahead of the wedding of one of his good friends, businessman Richard King.

Blowing pretty much every other previous best man's speech out of the water, the former England striker turned Match of the Day host called in a glut of favours from a whole constellation of famous stars (and Piers Morgan) to wish the groom and his lovely wife well on their big day.

Can Chelsea avoid a London derby upset from surprising West Ham?

The Premier League will feature all 20 teams on Boxing Day, highlighted by Chelsea's clash with West Ham at Stamford Bridge, while Manchester United entertain Newcastle at Old Trafford.

Having faced the possibility of sitting down for Christmas dinner after dropping to second place in the Premier League, Chelsea now have the opportunity to turn the tables on Manchester City by moving six points clear at the top with a win over West Ham United.

With the match kicking off at lunchtime and concluding prior to City's meeting with West Bromwich Albion later that afternoon, the Blues have the chance to increase the pressure on their main title rivals. No doubt Citizens' boss Manuel Pellegrini...
