Three Points: Arsenal belie familiar faults to beat West Ham

LONDON -- A trio of observations about Arsenal's 2-1 win at West Ham on Sunday in the Premier League.

1.   Arsenal show some spirit

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is very keen on emphasising his side's "spirit" and affirms that his players' mental toughness is much more apparent than many outside observers might believe.

The evidence has suggested otherwise at times, with the number of Arsenal defeats against the Premier League's big teams -- both in terms of quality of opponent and physical...

West Ham's Champions League ambitions checked by Chelsea

Sam Allardyce watched his West Ham side lose to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea on Boxing Day.

"Champions League? You're having a laugh" was the inevitable taunt from the Chelsea supporters to West Ham after the Blues stretched their unbeaten home run with a 2-0 Boxing Day win.

It may be the season of goodwill, and it may say much about the Hammers' wonderful first half of the season that allows the home supporters to even use the chant -- but it's difficult to argue with that assessment post-match.

Three Points: Chelsea ease to victory vs. West Ham

Diego Costa was on target in a 2-0 win as Premier League leaders Chelsea were too much for the Hammers to handle.

LONDON -- John Terry and Diego Costa scored as Chelsea enjoyed a comfortable win over West Ham. Here's a trio of observations on Chelsea's 2-0 victory in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

1. Chelsea are back in the groove

This Boxing Day game was effectively wrapped up when Diego Costa, seizing onto Eden Hazard's pass after Cheikhou Kouyate had given the ball away, sent three defenders in one direction with a swerve of the hips and flashed an irresistible second goal across Adrian with his left...

West Ham Report Card: A summary of the Hammers' Premier League season

Sam Allardyce is keen that his West Ham United players "enjoy the moment" of flying high in the Premier League after their 2-0 win over Leicester City at Upton Park.

Your Season So Far -- In A Sentence

With their best start to a Premier League season, West Ham have exceeded expectations by a significant margin and surprised everybody in the process with some excellent and entertaining football.

Premier League's Best XI outside the established order

ESPN FC's Best of the Rest.

Some facts get quoted so often they become footballing cliches. Seamus Coleman cost 60,000 pounds. Rickie Lambert used to work in a beetroot factory. And now there is the newest: Wilfried Bony has scored more Premier League goals than anyone else in 2014.

There are circumstances to explain what, at first, seemed a strange statistic. Luis Suarez, Diego Costa and Alexis Sanchez spent only part of the calendar year in England. Daniel Sturridge and Sergio Aguero missed significant parts of it because...
