Man City face crucial summer as they plot title revenge on Chelsea

The ESPN FC crew discuss the Premier League team of the year.

There can be absolutely no doubt that Chelsea proved themselves to be the best team in the Premier League for the 2014-15 campaign, though they didn't have the competition they should have.

Before Christmas, both the reigning champions Manchester City and the would-be champions could not be separated. Every little slip-up was a cause for celebration by the other side as it gave the chance for somebody to get their nose in front.

As New Year's Day came along, the teams were dead level at the top...

Frank Lampard says farewell as Manchester City finish in second

MANCHESTER -- Three quick thoughts from Manchester City's 2-0 victory over Southampton at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

City end season on a high

Manchester City tend to finish seasons strongly -- they have ended this one top of the form table with six straight victories. They won their last six games in 2012 and their final five last season. The difference is that those runs brought the title to the Etihad. This secured second place but was in essence an exercise in damage limitation. It seems...

Lampard departs on a high note in Man City finale

ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE: Frank Lampard (31') Manchester City 1-0 Southampton
ENGLISH IPREMIER LEAGUE: Sergio Aguero (88') Manchester City 2-0 Southampton
The ESPN FC panel choose their top picks for next season's Premier League title.

The statistics in the end were significantly prettier than the match. City played out this unsuccessful 2014-15 season with six consecutive wins, sealed a seventh consecutive home win, making it 14 home wins out of 19 in the end. For the third time in four seasons, the Blues are Premier League top scorers, with marksman deluxe Sergio Aguero sealing the Golden Boot.

At the other end, Joe Hart's clean sheet meant that the Golden Glove goes to him for the fourth time in five seasons, while MLS-bound...

Premier League season in a sentence - how did your team do this term?

The ESPN FC crew discuss the Premier League team of the year.

As the dust settles on another Premier League season, it is time to reflect on the campaign and how it went for each club. Was it a success or failure? We asked our Premier League bloggers to assess their season in a sentence.

1. Chelsea

Worthy champions from start to finish -- "boring" is just a jealous state of mind.

2. Manchester City

Taken to the cleaners by Arsenal in the Community Shield, ill-prepared City did not heed that wake up call and suffered for most of the season.

Six defining games in the Premier League as Chelsea claimed title

The ESPN FC panel choose their top picks for next season's Premier League title.

Chelsea walked away with the Premier League title in 2014-15, but what were the most important games in the season? Here are six turning points that decided the order at the top.

Champions lay their marker: Burnley 1-3 Chelsea, Aug. 18

Scott Arfield struck to give Burnley the lead but Jose Mourinho's men came back.

It was tempting to think that the title's destiny had already been decided after the first round of matches. Scott Arfield's opening goal, from long range in the 14th minute, was a rare wobble in Chelsea's procession. But thereafter, signs of the season to come were...

Manuel Pellegrini must experiment with nothing to lose vs. Southampton

The ESPN FC panel respond to the reports suggesting James Milner rejected an offer from Manchester City.

It's very rare these days that Manchester City get a competitive game with absolutely nothing riding on it. In years gone by, the fans would count themselves lucky if safety was secured in April and the campaign was trundling to its conclusion.

If the supporters were very fortunate, then the end-of-season finale wouldn't finish 8-1 to Middlesbrough, as it did in 2008. It still pains me that the best goal in that game just happened to be the single one that Elano scored for Manchester City. You can...
