Football's finest rivals: Liverpool vs. Everton 1984-89

Every club has a rival, a target for so much of their enmity. Very few, however, are fortunate enough to have an opposing team so good it pushes them higher.

In Formula 1, Niki Lauda eventually came to see it as a blessing to be facing someone like James Hunt: it made him better. It was also a theme Roy Keane picked up in his recent book, as he discussed Manchester United's long rivalry with Arsenal at the turn of the millennium. "They might just have had an edge over us," he wrote, "but it was...

Player of the Season so far: Your club's best performer in the Premier League

The ESPN FC crew respond to your tweets and discuss the candidates for EPL MVP thus far and question whether or not Craig Burley will ever manage.

With the season in full swing, who has shone in the Premier League? We asked our ESPN FC bloggers who has been their club's player of the season so far ...

Arsenal: Alexis Sanchez

In a season when Arsenal have lurched from the less than sublime to the beyond ridiculous, the Chilean stands head and shoulders above anyone else. Desire, work rate, energy, application, a hunger to make an impact on games and the end product to back it up. So far...

Draw with Sunderland leaves Everton facing nervous days over the break

Leighton Baines saved a point for Everton after Sebastian Larsson's free kick put Sunderland ahead.

Match officials appear under increased scrutiny this season. Performances such as the one Lee Mason served up in Everton's 1-1 draw at Sunderland merely justify the level of attention focused on the standard of refereeing in the Premier League.

Despite awarding Everton a penalty, which Leighton Baines duly converted, Mason still managed to infuriate the visitors. Still, before any talk of Mason's torrid afternoon, it is worth noting the continued influence of Baines.

Everton's Samuel Eto'o treads the acting boards

Only a bad bounce of the ball denied Samuel Eto'o a hat trick on Sunday versus Burnley.
Is a movie career in Samuel Eto'o's future?

Whether we're talking current Rangers manager Ally McCoist's star turn opposite Robert Duvall in "A Shot At Glory" or ex-Liverpool striker Stan Collymore's small but intrinsically important cameo in "Basic Instinct 2" (wherein his character is killed off before the opening credits begin), football has a long and storied tradition of bolstering straight-to-DVD movies with a steady supply of left-field acting talent.

With social media being what it is, football clubs are now in the habit of producing...

Gareth Barry back to his best in Everton's win against Lille

Everton took a major step towards the knockout stages of the Europa League after a comfortable 3-0 victory over Lille at Goodison Park.
Gareth Barry has been at the top of this game as Everton inched closer to the Europa League knockout stages.

On the day Roy Hodgson named his latest England squad and bemoaned the lack of English holding midfielders, Gareth Barry gave the latest in a long line of performances to the contrary, proving not all the country's sitting midfield options are unfit for purpose.

After the temporary move to central defence against Swansea on Saturday, this was the midfielder back to his unassuming best. The manner in which Barry dictated the pace of the game in Everton's 3-0 win over Lille underlined the continued...

Injuries on Everton's back line could give an opportunity to Sylvain Distin

Sylvain Distin has struggled to get playing time this season but Antolin Alcaraz's shoulder injury could spark a revival from the 36-year-old defender.

A constant fixture in the Everton defence since his 2009 arrival from Portsmouth, Sylvain Distin has found football hard to come by this season; the veteran defender has fallen from first choice to fourth in a matter of months.

Amid rumours of the player bumping heads with manager Roberto Martinez -- rumours Martinez has been quick to rubbish -- Distin has not featured in the league since the 3-2 home defeat to Crystal Palace in September.

Distin has appeared in just six matches in all competitions,...
