Champions League chase a close race, but what's holding back contenders?

The ESPN FC crew discuss the chances Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers gets fired from Liverpool in the near future.

While Manchester United returned to the Champions League places after their 2-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday, manager Louis van Gaal was unwilling to declare it a return to their best.

In fact, he played down the performance of his side, even though it was his first away win in England and it came against a clear rival. There were simply too many flaws.

"The first 25 minutes we gave the ball away so silly," Van Gaal said. "That is not possible for a top team."

United's total points after the victory...

Surprise top of the table clash as City prepare to face bogey-team Saints

ESPN FC's Craig Burley analyses what Sergio Aguero means to Manchester City and Steve Nicol gives his take on the helping hand City had in the Champions League.

As the mass exodus from the Southampton dressing room took place over the summer, there will have been half an eye from Manchester City fans on two things. The first was that some of those departing had been linked with a move to the Blues, but the second was that their side might not struggle on the south coast as they have done recently if the Saints' first team all went marching off.

Somehow, Southampton lost some top class players, a manager and a chairman -- and appear to have come out stronger...

Southampton must show character after poor performance at Villa

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman discussed his side's 1-1 draw with Aston Villa who currently sit in 16th place in the Premier League.

Monday night's game between Aston Villa and Southampton should have been a spectacle fit for the television but, especially for Saints fans, you are unlikely to find a poorer example of Premier League football.

Predictably Paul Lambert set his Villa team up with the intention of not losing rather than trying to win -- an unforgivable action of a manager of a hosting side in my opinion -- and, despite being victims of it twice last season, Saints showed no sign that they had planned for it or learned...

Saints must make the most of Villa clash before crucial stretch

Ronald Koeman's high-flying Southampton next bring their goal-scoring roadshow to Villa Park.
Ronald Koeman's high-flying Southampton next bring their goal-scoring roadshow to Villa Park.

If there is one club who really didn't want an international break at the moment, it is Southampton, and so they will be raring to get back into the swing of the Premier League at Villa Park on Monday night.

Saints are flying, and a visit to Birmingham represents the last 'golden' opportunity for another three points before a tricky run of fixtures. Villa will be no pushovers of course, but with their ever declining form and a nasty growing injury list, Southampton boss Ronald Koeman and his team...

Southampton: Providing a bright future for the England national team

Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw have broken into the England squad and secured big-money moves to Liverpool and Manchester United respectively last summer, having been schooled at Southampton.

What do the Football Association's head of coach and player development, the goalkeeping coach, Fraser Forster, Nathaniel Clyne, Calum Chambers, Luke Shaw, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana, Theo Walcott and Rickie Lambert have in common?

They are all currently involved with the England setup and all have one mutual club who have had an influence on their career: Southampton.

Gone are the days when Saints fans waited for an England squad to be announced, knowing the best on the south coast would...

Reality check: Saints' Champions League bid remains only a dream

The ESPN FC crew discuss whether or not Southampton can continue their great run of form when they play the big boys.

"I have absolutely no sympathy for Southampton. They have a choice as a club. They don't have to sell. They had that choice. Maybe Southampton's objectives have changed. They were on course to be a Champions League club, I believe, but obviously, that has changed," -- Brendan Rodgers, August 2014

Whoops. The Liverpool manager might not be the modern-day Nostradamus, but, in fairness, he wasn't alone in feeling that Southampton had lost their ambition and were on a downward spiral. It is safe to...
