Norwich claim a crucial win


Neil not afraid to shuffle


Norwich frustrated at West Ham

 By Paddy Davitt

Norwich and Alex Neil will respect Arsenal but will test Wenger's men

Norwich battled at Chelsea last time out but Alex Neil's men came away with a 1-0 defeat.

Alex Neil has hailed Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as a visionary but the Norwich City boss aims to dent Arsenal's title charge in Sunday's Premier League duel.

The youngest top flight manager, 34, faces the senior statesman at Carrow Road with Neil convinced the Frenchman is still the gold standard for his precarious profession.

Wenger has endured plenty of criticism from sections of Arsenal's support for his failure to land the title in recent years or turn his club into genuine Champions League...

The Premier League relegation battle is intensifying already

Swansea's Garry Monk, left, and Eddie How of Bournemouth, right, are both facing relegation battles.

With 13 matches having been played, over a third of the Premier League season has now gone and, as a hectic December approaches, the relegation battle is taking shape.

Aston Villa's encounter with Watford on Saturday looks like the first of a series of "six-pointers" that also includes Villa's trip to Newcastle on Dec. 19 for a meeting of two traditionally big clubs, who are currently in dire trouble.

If Chelsea, currently 15th, are to be removed from the picture on the grounds of the sheer unlikelihood...

Norwich beaten at Chelsea but Alex Neil's men show fighting spirit

Nathan Redmond threatened for Norwich but Alex Neil's men narrowly lost at Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho labelled Chelsea's Premier League title bid "mission impossible," after beating Norwich City 1-0 on Saturday but for the visitors, surviving this season does not seem so far-fetched despite the defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Diego Costa's 64th minute finish earned Mourinho and his under-performing Blues some respite, yet for all Chelsea's unquestioned dominance at Stamford Bridge it again exposed a damaging lapse in concentration from Norwich.

Alex Neil had unveiled another plan designed...

1. Mourinho fights another day

At the minimum, Mourinho lives to fight another day. For the more optimistic, perhaps this was the any-win-will-do afternoon that releases weeks of pent-up pressure. Chelsea did not have it all their own way against a gutsy Norwich side, but something resembling their old ability to open teams up flickered into evidence often...

Norwich City seeking to prolong Chelsea's agony

Norwich manager Alex Neil doesn't care that Swansea dominated possession, saying the 1-0 scoreline is all that matters.

Norwich City's previous Premier League visit to Chelsea sealed their Premier League for the 2013-14 season. However, now, Saturday's Stamford Bridge return could signal the end for Blues manager Jose Mourinho.

The Canaries' battling 0-0 draw in May 2014 in their final away league game of that season was not enough to repel a late surge from relegation rivals Sunderland that eventually consigned Norwich to the Championship.

This time around the searing focus and the potential fallout is focused...

Anfield atmosphere among worst in Premier League as fans give verdicts

The ESPN FC crew discuss fans leaving early in matches and our match-goers believe the Premier League can improve.

What's it really like to attend a Premier League match? Many watch from afar and don't know, so we polled our ESPN FC match-going bloggers -- the guys in the stands week in, week out -- to find out how they rate the atmosphere and experience.

They didn't hold back. Not surprisingly, our Arsenal blogger considered the Emirates too corporate while our Liverpool blogger didn't hold back when asked about the atmosphere at Anfield.
