Raheem Sterling, Zlatan Ibrahimovic impress in Manchester; Liverpool poor

The FC panels discuss Zlatan Ibrahimovic's impact on Man United thus far, and if he's already meeting expectations or not.

Iain Macintosh casts his eye over the best and worst of the action from the Premier League this weekend.


Behold the 100 percent club. The greatest managers in Europe, perched at the top of the Premier League, bound together by their own perfection. Their names will echo throughout history. Pep Guardiola. Jose Mourinho. Antonio Conte and ... Mike Phelan. The Hull City caretaker manager -- and surely he'll be given the job for real soon -- has won more games in the first seven days of the season...

Hull City defy expectations as Maloney and Hernandez strike at Swansea

Caretaker boss Mike Phelan gave his verdict following Hull City's 2-0 win at Swansea.

Hull City continue to defy expectations after making it six points from six in a hugely encouraging return to the Premier League. Despite again having just 13 senior professionals available, they again found the resolve and defensive strength to grind out a 2-0 victory at Swansea on Saturday.

The hosts saw more of the ball and camped in their visitors' half for long periods but the Tigers always looked a threat on the counter. The late goals from Shaun Maloney and Abel Hernandez were the icing on...

Hull City still in crisis mode despite win over champions Leicester

Mike Phelan praises Hull City for their performance despite their limited first team squad members.

Hull City opened the Premier League season by beating champions Leicester City 2-1 at the KCOM Stadium last weekend but, in truth, the club is in near-suspended animation.

Two of the 13 senior players currently available to caretaker manager Mike Phelan, filling in after manager Steve Bruce resigned on July 22, are goalkeepers. Until current owners the Allam family are able to sell the club, with a Chinese consortium reported to be close to making an offer, then no incoming transfers are expected,...

Hull City remain in a state despite improbable victory over Leicester

Caretaker boss Mike Phelan admits Hull City are not in an ideal position.

Hull City supporters have known some great days in the last decade. Three promotions to the Premier League have brought a handful of seasons in the top flight, not to mention runs to an FA Cup final and into the European football.

Even in this era of unprecedented success, though, there have been few days at the KCOM Stadium to rival the one that began a new season last weekend. A 2-1 victory over Leicester City was as uplifting as it was unexpected. A squad comprising of just 13 senior players...

Champions Leicester face last season's runners-up Arsenal this weekend in a match that could give fans some early clues in the title race. 

Elsewhere, the first Friday night match of the new season sees Jose Mourinho's home debut as Manchester United manager in the Premier League, with Southampton looking to spoil the party with a third win in succession at Old Trafford.

Liverpool and Hull earn contrasting wins; Arsenal and Leicester slump

ESPN FC's Craig Burley breaks down the positives and negatives from both sides in Liverpool and Arsenal's seven-goal thriller.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley breaks down Manchester United's solid EPL season-opening victory, but stresses there is still work to be done.

Iain Macintosh casts his eye over the best and worst of the action from opening weekend in the Premier League.


Even though you'd imagine that at least 10 percent of Liverpool's supporters are still hiding behind the sofa, for this was not a particularly relaxing way to start to the season, what an opening day win it was to triumph 4-3 at Arsenal. There is plenty for Jurgen Klopp to work on, particularly at left-back (see below), but four goals at the Emirates Stadium indicates that, whatever...
