Player Ratings: David Silva gets full marks as City beat Baggies

David Silva was on target in a fine individual performance as Manchester City beat West Brom 3-1 at the Hawthorns.

Manchester City eased to a 3-1 win at West Brom on Saturday to make it six goals in two games without a recognised striker on the field. Such a fine haul is largely down to David Silva, who has netted half of them despite lacking confidence in his finishing ability.

The only blemish of the last few weeks for City is the rather haphazard defending that saw Joe Hart's shut-outs end at 530 minutes. Having not conceded since the seventh minute of the win at Sunderland, Hart's missed punch allowed a...

Reflecting on an exciting first half of the German Bundesliga season

The ESPN FC crew discuss Borussia Dortmund's domestic struggles after a 2-1 defeat to Werder Bremen, finishing 2014 joint-bottom with Freiburg in the Bundesliga.

"2014 was a year that made all our wishes come true," said German FA president Wolfgang Niersbach this week. But the World Cup party from Germany's win this summer, couldn't go on forever, of course. Domestically, the 2014-15 Bundesliga campaign brought more trouble than festive cheer for all but a handful of clubs.

These were the main storylines of the typically eventful, unpredictable first half of the season after "that night in Rio."

1. Borussia Dortmund come off the rails

Three Points: Raheem Sterling the hero as Liverpool edge Burnley

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Raheem Sterling (62') Burnley 0-1 Liverpool

BURNLEY, England -- Raheem Sterling's second-half goal was the difference as Liverpool picked up a valuable 1-0 away win at Burnley. Here are three quick points from their Boxing Day clash at Turf Moor:

1. Sharp Sterling helps Liverpool win ugly

Brendan Rodgers is a proponent of the beautiful game, but there can be little doubt that his side won ugly at Turf Moor. Liverpool were nowhere near as fast or as fluent as they had been in possession against Arsenal on Sunday, let alone as potent as...

Player Ratings: Wayne Rooney is in his best form for five years at United

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner and Alexis Nunes break down Manchester United's 3-1 victory over a faltering Newcastle.

Manchester United's attacking riches gleamed under the rain at Old Trafford with a 3-1 victory over an ambitious Newcastle side. Some of the home side's movement in the final third was outstanding, and this win consolidated an ascendant period for Louis van Gaal.

Chelsea and Manchester City will be fully aware of the juggernaut gaining speed just behind them.

1. United roll back the years

Thrilling forward play and deadly counterattacks are what a younger generation of Manchester United fans were brought up on. If this season's Premier League title looks beyond Louis Van Gaal's team, Old Trafford is being presented with a vision of an imminent future in which their team might soon compete with Chelsea and Manchester City.

West Ham's Champions League ambitions checked by Chelsea

Sam Allardyce watched his West Ham side lose to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea on Boxing Day.

"Champions League? You're having a laugh" was the inevitable taunt from the Chelsea supporters to West Ham after the Blues stretched their unbeaten home run with a 2-0 Boxing Day win.

It may be the season of goodwill, and it may say much about the Hammers' wonderful first half of the season that allows the home supporters to even use the chant -- but it's difficult to argue with that assessment post-match.
