Idrissa Gueye a bright spot in Everton's dismal defeat at Burnley

Burnley's Scott Arfield scored in the 90th minute to earn his side three points against Everton.
Idrissa Gueye was a leader in midfield but it wasn't enough as Everton beat themselves at Burnley on Saturday.

Everton never cease to amaze with their ability to turn a position of control into an agonising setback. This last gasp 2-1 defeat at Burnley was a familiar story draped in a new setting. From the messy opening goal to the belated recovery and unrewarded dominance preceding the inevitable reality check, there was a painful predictability to this late loss. Ronald Koeman's team did not deserve to lose but had only themselves to blame for doing so.

That Burnley match-winner Scott Arfield should...

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.


Everton still searching for attacking support for Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku has held up his end of the bargain with six goals but needs help if Everton is to continue their fast start.

After stifling league leaders and joint top scorers Manchester City -- few teams are likely to leave the Etihad with something to show for their efforts this season -- a trip to goal-shy Burnley on Saturday is the next challenge for Everton.

Ronald Koeman's team should anticipate a win in this fixture if they harbour genuine European hopes. A win at Turf Moor can generate momentum and ensure the City draw does not become meaningless.

Maarten Stekelenburg the Everton hero in draw at Manchester City

ESPN FC's Craig Burley breaks down Manchester City's draw with Everton.

Everton almost recorded the perfect smash-and-grab against league leaders Manchester City on Saturday. In the end, the away side left with a hard-earned point after the first managerial battle between Ronald Koeman and Pep Guardiola ended in an entertaining 1-1 draw.

The visitors withstood tremendous pressure and highlighted the defensive improvements made under Koeman, but this point owed much to Maarten Stekelenburg, with the Everton goalkeeper delivering a masterclass between the posts, saving...

Another goal to add to Tim Cahill's epic highlight reel

Has there ever been a footballer who rises -- often literally -- to the occasion like Tim Cahill? Certainly, there's been no better produced by Australia.

The 36-year-old made his long-awaited A-League debut on Saturday night in Melbourne City's 4-1 thrashing of crosstown rivals Melbourne Victory, and made an instant impact.

Just prior to the half-hour mark, the Socceroos' greatest-ever goalscorer collected a loose ball some 40-metres out from goal and dispatched an unstoppable drive past hapless...

Guardiola vs. Koeman was a great, overdue tactical Premier League battle

Man City boss Pep Guardiola rubbishes the idea that the Premier League is more intense than others in Europe.
Maarten Stekelenburg saved two penalties as his Everton side held Premier League leaders Manchester City to a 1-1 draw.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley says it's quite worrying for Man City, who continue to miss key chances.

MANCHESTER, England -- We were promised absorbing tactical battles in the Premier League this season, with Pep Guardiola and Antonio Conte arriving in England, Jurgen Klopp starting his first full season and Jose Mourinho and Ronald Koeman joining new clubs. England's top flight has suffered from a lack of tactical innovation recently, which partly explains its under-performance in the Champions League. More forward-thinking coaches, and more intelligent tactical battles, should improve the standard...
