Chelsea fought back from a Gary Cahill own goal deficit to earn their spot in their Premier League summit.

Manchester City's season is descending swiftly towards a crossroads.

At the junction can be seen four signs: The first is marked "European success," the second "Domestic success" and the third "Chaotic unfulfillment." The final marker -- with a "road closed" sign in front of it -- reads "Total fulfillment." At this stage of proceedings, it is difficult to say for sure which turn Pep Guardiola's bandwagon will take.

After a thoroughly unsatisfactory return from what had, until the 60th minute, been...

Loris Karius, Claudio Bravo gaffes highlight goalkeeping concern in Prem

The ESPN FC crew discuss a weekend of dodgy goalkeeping in the Premier League.

For many fans, the weekend just gone was a highly entertaining and enjoyable one in the Premier League.

There were 36 goals in nine games; an exhilarating comeback by Bournemouth; a brutally clinical performance by Chelsea; Spurs found something close to their rhythm; Alexis Sanchez scored one of the best hat tricks you'll see; Crystal Palace won their first game in eons and there was a smattering of those "disgraceful incidents" we shouldn't enjoy, but we...

Antonio Conte exposes Pep Guardiola as Chelsea humiliate Manchester City

ESPN FC's Mark Ogden says Chelsea are the team to beat this season.

Antonio Conte secured an eighth straight league win on Saturday at Manchester City, though the Italian needed a slice of luck in a testing first hour. Pep Guardiola initially seemed the victor in the strategic duel, but squandered chances meant his team failed to sink a resilient Chelsea side whose blistering counterattacking delivered a 3-1 triumph.

Bournemouth and Chelsea joy, Liverpool woe lead Heroes & Villains

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

HEROES

Once upon a time, it was Liverpool who had a nice line in dramatic 4-3 victories. And didn't Newcastle United know it. But the boot was on the other foot Sunday, and that other foot was kicking Liverpool repeatedly in the bottom. Quite where Bournemouth pulled this result from is anyone's guess. They looked dead and buried at halftime, but Eddie Howe has inculcated his players with...

MANCHESTER, England -- So it is not just Jose Mourinho who is losing his head in Manchester this season.

Pep Guardiola was supposed to bring a more measured approach to Manchester City -- calmness rather than chaos, focus rather fury -- but as his team left the field at the end of a 3-1 defeat against Chelsea at the Etihad Stadium, they did so with nine men, after the late dismissals of Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho.

Manchester City lost their heads in Saturday's fraught 3-1 defeat to Chelsea, and it's left their title challenge needing some work.

Frustrations boiled over after Eden Hazard's late goal to secure the win, and Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho saw straight red cards -- the striker for a late, two-footed lunge on David Luiz, the midfielder for twice grabbing Cesc Fabregas by the throat in the aftermath.
