Benteke and Palace's character

Crystal Palace

Crystal Palace need to strike better balance in attack vs. Leicester

Christian Benteke doesn't quite fit this Palace team yet but Alan Pardew needs to involve him more vs. Leicester.

Crystal Palace have been suffering recently from an inability to start matches in a convincing fashion and whether it's a case of failing to take chances or failing to create them, Alan Pardew's side have laboured through the opening halves of ties. Half-time typically sees a change in style and approach. It doesn't always take a substitution, but there is usually a marked improvement from the players. Against Sunderland and Everton, these changes resulted in Palace fighting their way back to...

Jose Mourinho returns to face Chelsea, Manchester City's Southampton test

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop tries his hand at Premier League predictor, but does he expect a stalemate at the Bridge?

Jose Mourinho returns to former club Chelsea with Manchester United on Sunday having struggled to break down Liverpool in the 0-0 draw at Anfield, but seeing his side score four against Feyenoord.

Arsenal are flying high after their demolition of Ludogorets, which was their seventh win in a row in all competitions, and will hope add to that streak against struggling Middlesbrough, while leaders Manchester City take on Southampton hoping to get back on track after their humbling at Barcelona.


Christian Benteke and Crystal Palace pay the penalty in West Ham loss

Christian Benteke missed a penalty as Crystal Palace slipped to defeat against West Ham.

Another week and another slow start from Crystal Palace, resulting in West Ham taking an insurmountable 1-0 lead on Saturday evening. Palace did have chances to level, but they were either missed or just didn't fall for them. Christian Benteke's penalty miss just before half time didn't help the side either.

Liverpool and Manchester United resume bitter rivalry at Anfield

The ESPN FC crew discuss the decision to award referee Anthony Taylor the match between Liverpool and Manchester United.

Liverpool's long-standing rivalry with Manchester United is renewed on Monday, as Jurgen Klopp's side face Jose Mourinho's men at Anfield.

Elsewhere, Everton travel to Manchester City, looking to pick up where Tottenham left off before the international break. Spurs inflicted Pep Guardiola's first defeat as City boss on Oct. 2, and the Catalan will be looking for a response.

At the other end of the table, it's an early relegation scrap, as the league's two winless sides, Stoke and Sunderland, do...

James McArthur crucial to Crystal Palace hopes against West Ham

James McArthur
James McArthur has impressed for Crystal Palace so far this season.

James McArthur isn't a headline-grabbing midfielder. He doesn't score 30-yard screamers, he doesn't posture as he struts around the turf at Selhurst, nor is he a thunderous midfield destroyer. He does what he does for Palace with a wry smile and a ruthless effectiveness.

McArthur's return to the team last season following a prolonged injury spell gave Palace's listless side a significant lift -- helping to propel the team to safety at a time where fans were losing faith. His injury came shortly...
