Premier League summit showdown as Manchester City face leaders Chelsea

Franck Leboeuf says the outcome in Manchester City vs. Chelsea could be a turning point in the title race.

It's a massive match this Saturday as leaders Chelsea host third-placed Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium. 

Antonio Conte's men have enjoyed a strong campaign so far while Pep Guardiola's men are just one point behind following a run of seven wins in a row. Liverpool, who travel to Bournemouth on Sunday, will be paying close attention to events at the Bridge as they could capitalise on any slip ups from either side.

Manchester United travel to Everton in desperate need of a victory having...

Hughes, Stoke still searching for answers at striker

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes says his side 'stood up to the challenge' despite missing some key players against Watford.
Stoke's Charlie Adam conceded after the match that he pushed Watford's Valon Behrami to set up Heurelho Gomes' own goal.
An own goal from Heurelho Gomes was the lone goal in an otherwise anemic offensive display from Watford and Stoke City.

Saturday's visit of Burnley marks the last of a nine-game clutch of favourable fixtures for the Potters ahead of a more challenging schedule in December.

It's a period that with one game to go has taken in matches against West Brom, Sunderland, Hull, Swansea, West Ham, Bournemouth and Watford, and resulted in a healthy average of two points a game with a creditable draw against Manchester United thrown in for good measure.

Results elsewhere at the weekend saw the side just slip out of the...

Imbula, Diouf commanding for Stoke in win at Watford

Stoke's Charlie Adam conceded after the match that he pushed Watford's Valon Behrami to set up Heurelho Gomes' own goal.
An own goal from Heurelho Gomes was the lone goal in an otherwise anemic offensive display from Watford and Stoke City.

Stoke defied the fact they were missing five first team players to get back to winning ways -- and into the top 10 of the league -- in Sunday's 1-0 away win at Watford. Having perhaps been expected to let the hosts play in front of them before hitting them on the break, the opening 45 minutes instead saw the Potters absolutely dominate possession and chances created.   

The goal that decided the contest was entirely deserved but also maybe a tad fortuitous given the foul in the build-up...

Stoke must prove that Bournemouth defeat was a blip amid good run

Stoke City manager Mark Hughes attributes his team's loss to Bournemouth to several simple mistakes within their team.

Having started the season so abysmally, Stoke's recent unbeaten run of six matches looked to have firmly put to bed any fears they will struggle this year. Then came a 1-0 home defeat to Bournemouth -- where the worst of their traits came back to haunt them.

An inability to cope with being pressed, a lack of organisation when trying to do the same to the opposition and terrible defending from set pieces has left fans wondering which side will turn up for the difficult away trip to Watford.

Will...

Tottenham bid to end Chelsea hoodoo, Liverpool host Sunderland

Craig Burley says Mauricio Pochettino needs a result when Spurs visit Chelsea after crashing out of the Champions League.
Craig Burley and Mark Donaldson take their best shot at predicting this weekend's Premier League fixtures.
Get caught up on Saturday's Premier League matches, headlined by a London derby clash between Chelsea and Tottenham.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley dishes out his Top 5 Premier League players thus far in the 2016-17 season.
The Exploding Heads assess the different hate pyramids between Chelsea and Spurs ahead of their vital clash.

Leaders Chelsea host Tottenham on Saturday evening, with Spurs looking to end their long wait for a victory at Stamford Bridge. 

Tottenham have never won at Chelsea in the Premier League, and a 2-2 draw there last season handed the title to Leicester. Mauricio Pochettino's men are the only unbeaten team remaining in the league, but if they do slip up in west London, the chasing pack will be ready to pounce.

Liverpool, knocked off the top spot by the Blues last weekend, have a favourable home...

Allen joins Ronaldo, Messi and Bale as UEFA recognises Stoke man's rise

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop picks his UEFA Team of the Year.

Ask any fan who the best players in the world are and the names of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar Jr. will roll off their tongues with little-to-no effort.

Those players, along with 37 others, complete a 40-man shortlist from UEFA ahead of voting and confirmation of their 2016 Team of the Year in what is an annual celebration of those who have lit up world football. There is one name on there, however, that perhaps stands out more than the rest: Stoke City's Joe Allen.
