Liverpool overcome Man City, but will true greatness ever return to Anfield?

The ESPN FC crew identify the elements leading to Liverpool's current rise in the Premier League table.

Liverpool's league form has been highly impressive since their embarrassing 3-1 loss to Crystal Palace in November. The stats read like a team chasing the title: played 15, won 10, drawn four, lost one, with the latest victory coming in a superb 2-1 performance against champions Manchester City.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers praises Philippe Coutinho for another game-winning goal against Manchester City.

Liverpool showed remarkable powers of recovery to overcome Manchester City 2-1 at Anfield and edge ever closer to the Champions League places.

Despite City having the benefit of an extra 48 hours of recovery time following their midweek European disappointments, it was Liverpool that looked fresher and seemed to want it more.

Heroes and Villains: John Terry leads Chelsea's charge, Man City fading fast

ESPN FC's Craig Burley recaps Chelsea's dominant performance against Tottenham on their way to claiming the Capital One Cup trophy.

Matchday 27 of the Premier League is in the bag, so it's time to run the rule over the Heroes and Villains of the weekend ...

HEROES

Diego Costa stole the headlines, but it was John Terry who won the man of the match at Wembley. Harry Kane has caused problems for teams all season, including Chelsea. Terry and an improved Gary Cahill kept him quiet. Terry's perfectly timed late sliding tackle on Kane, executed without fear in his own penalty area, typified his performance. Were it not for off-the-field...
