Liverpool and City need top keepers to mount Premier League challenge

The ESPN FC panel answer your tweets on the worst goalkeeping gaffe in the Prem and discuss Liverpool and Man City's needs.

Can a team win the Premier League with a struggling goalkeeper? History suggests not. That does not bode well for Manchester City and Liverpool, counting the cost of weekend catastrophes from Claudio Bravo and Loris Karius, two summer arrivals now pinpointed as weak links.

Having struggled to adjust since arriving from Barcelona this summer, Bravo was lambasted for being too easily beaten by Willian in City's 3-1 loss to Chelsea on Saturday. Karius meanwhile capped an uncertain performance at Bournemouth...

Liverpool's defensive issues could cancel out their sparkling attack

Alison Bender and Stewart Robson discuss the mistakes that have led to criticism of Liverpool's defence in recent weeks.

Jurgen Klopp has a problem. His Liverpool team looked shell-shocked after a 4-3 defeat by Bournemouth at Dean Court. The only one who looked composed was the 49-year-old German.

Ultimately, Klopp was disappointed. Any manager whose side twice held a two-goal lead would have harsh words to administer in the dressing room after defeat.

Bayern Munich's Mats Hummels says he was 'very close' to Man United move

Stewart Robson discusses Jose Mourinho's approach when dealing with Manchester United's squad.

Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels says he was "very close" to a move to Manchester United under Louis van Gaal in 2014.

And the 27-year-old told the Daily Mail that United was only one of many English clubs who were vying for his services.

"Yes, [a deal was close]," Hummels said. "Yes, yes, yes. It was close. Very...
