Liverpool and Man City renew hostilities

50-50 Challenge

Can, Skrtel, Sakho combo key for Reds

Steven Gerrard still has Liverpool role, but it might not be as a starter

It's down to the wire in the Premier League as Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool vie for a Champions League spot.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Craig Burley discuss Liverpool's 2-0 triumph over Burnley and how Brendan Rodgers' side has turned it around this season.
Jordan Henderson produced another wonder-strike in Liverpool's 2-0 victory over Burnley to earn him player of the week honours.

As Steven Gerrard inches ever closer to full fitness, Brendan Rodgers is about to face arguably the toughest decision of his Anfield tenure to date: what to do with his legendary skipper in the final months of his Liverpool career.

With the team thriving, can Rodgers risk upsetting the apple cart by bringing Gerrard back into the side, or should he restrict him to a bit-part role for the remainder of the campaign?

Things have certainly changed an awful lot in the past 12 months. Last season's tactical...

Manchester United face Liverpool in fascinating fight for top four

It's down to the wire in the Premier League as Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool vie for a Champions League spot.

Manchester United simply do not make sense this season. Every game appears to bring a fresh nadir in the quality of performance; each week a fresh layer of despair is added to how joyless this team seems to have become.

Heads are shaken as another anemic Angel Di Maria performance makes him look a shadow of the player we saw in the early weeks of the season; eyes are rubbed as those present wonder whether this is the same Radamel Falcao who was the deadliest centre-forward in Europe a couple of...

Chelsea closer to Premier League title, but are Everton in a relegation scrap?

Manchester United grab another three points, while Aston Villa break their losing streak with a vital extra-time winner.
A full slate of midweek fixtures saw Tim Sherwood lead Villa to victory, an apologetic Ben Foster and a water bottle showdown between Gus Poyet and Steve Bruce.
The ESPN FC panel discuss why Chelsea have been able to maintain their lead atop the Premier League as they held on for a 1-nil victory over West Ham.

It's time to run the rule over the Heroes and Villains of matchday 28 in the Premier League, as there were plenty of exciting midweek fixtures.


Twice, Jonas Gutierrez has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. Twice, he has beaten it. To fight that battle with courage and dignity, whether that battle is won or lost, is an achievement that outstrips any of the trivialities this column covers from week to week. To fight it twice, to beat it twice and to return to one of the world's most demanding...

Jordan Henderson leads by example as Liverpool coast to victory vs. Burnley

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Craig Burley discuss Liverpool's 2-0 triumph over Burnley and how Brendan Rodgers' side has turned it around this season.

Liverpool cruised to a 2-0 victory over relegation strugglers Burnley at Anfield on Wednesday night. More goals could, and perhaps should, have been scored but the visitors showed little inclination to open up the game even when they were two goals behind, erring on the side of caution for almost the entire evening.

With the Reds in an aggressive mood, that was probably a wise decision. Players like Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho are a joy to watch at the moment, allied to a defensive ring...

Liverpool must be wary of post-City letdown versus Burnley

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner gives his take on Liverpool's best options at right wing-back following the news that Jordon Ibe will be sidelined with a knee ligament injury.

Having defeated second-place Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday, Liverpool now turn their attention to a side at the other end of the table as third-from-bottom Burnley make the short trip to Merseyside. On paper this looks a much easier game for Brendan Rodgers' in-form side, but after their energy-sapping efforts in beating City, the Reds must now guard against complacency.

Burnley cannot be taken lightly as they're a much tougher opponent than their lowly league position suggests, and they've...

Liverpool owe Steven Gerrard but not at the expense of top-four finish

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop gives his opinion on how Brendon Rodgers and Liverpool should treat Steven Gerrard for the rest of his time at Anfield.
ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti does not believe there is any animosity between Steven Gerrard and Mario Balotelli, but believes the 34-year-old is just doing the best he can with his last chance to win something with Liverpool.

Every time Brendan Rodgers is asked a question about Steven Gerrard, he takes a moment to pause. He does so because he knows that, as soon as those two words are mentioned, the game is afoot. The Liverpool manager knows the object of that game. He knows he probably cannot win, not in any meaningful sense, but he can make sure he doesn't lose.

Take this example, from the Northern Irishman's news conference after the FA Cup victory at Crystal Palace a couple of weeks ago. Jordan Henderson, as tends...
