#FCtalkingpoints: Lampard, Rodgers, transfers, Real Madrid, West Ham

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley breaks down all the drama at Anfield, which culminated with Martin Skrtel's stoppage-time equaliser that earned Liverpool a draw against Arsenal.

Football always inspires debate, and this weekend was no exception. Here are five burning questions on the ESPN FC radar following the weekend.

Brendan Rodgers is no stranger to off-the-wall comments, but his latest following Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Arsenal is borderline insane.

"Our performance today was better than when we won here 5-1 last year," said Rodgers.

Transfer season is almost upon us again and there has been no shortage of tasty rumours floating through ESPN FC's Transfer Talk blog of late....

West Ham sitting fourth as run of good form continues versus Leicester City

Andy Carroll opened up the scoring again, as West Ham moved within one point of Manchester United.

West Ham remain fourth in the Premier League after a comfortable 2-0 win over Leicester City. Barring two late chances from substitutes David Nugent and Leonardo Ulloa -- both superbly stopped by Hammers keeper Adrian -- Leicester never really threatened the Hammers at all.

Talk instead was of an Andy Carroll goal lofted over the keeper on a one-on-one, another sweetly-struck shot by Stewart Downing that curled around the keeper from distance and a lovely pass by local boy Paul Konchesky to...

West Ham must be wary of Leicester City banana skin

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce explains that his side picked up a well-deserved point in a 1-1 draw with Sunderland, as the Hammers currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League.

West Ham welcome Leicester City to Upton Park on Saturday looking for a vital win to take into the busy Christmas period.

Hammers fans may have one eye on the rather more tempting fare available with a Boxing Day visit to Chelsea or a match two days later against Arsenal at the Boleyn, but it is vitally important that the team gain maximum points against the Foxes, as any loss of momentum could cost them dearly in the later games.

It's a tradition that when the fixture list is released every...

Big Sam's Hammers leave Stadium of Light with a hard-earned point

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce explains that his side picked up a well-deserved point in a 1-1 draw with Sunderland, as the Hammers currently sit in fourth place in the Premier League.

West Ham gained another valuable and well-earned point in a 1-1 draw at the Stadium of Light against a spirited Sunderland side. Once again the Hammers fell behind -- a disputed penalty that had Sam Allardyce fuming -- before hauling themselves back into contention just seven minutes later with a well-taken Stewart Downing goal.

Current state of West Ham is worth savouring

You'll excuse this blogger if he gets a bit smug this week, but I fought an almost lone battle in support of manager Sam Allardyce last season and followed this up with an impassioned plea not to jettison Andy Carroll too early when he suffered another injury setback this campaign and, happily, I have been proved right on both counts.

It's long been my belief that the short-term attitude to virtually everything in the Premier League is counterproductive and the Year Zero elements of the league...

Carroll on song as West Ham climb to a lofty third in the Premier League

West Ham boss Sam Allardyce reacts to moving up to third in the Premier League table following his side's 3-1 victory over Swansea.

Just before Diafra Sakho scored his 87th minute goal -- West Ham's third -- the Senegal International followed his predatory striker's instinct when one on one with Swansea keeper Gerhard Tremmel, electing to shoot and striking the post when a low cross to Andy Carroll would surely have given the Geordie his hat-trick. Carroll was denied the match-ball that he would have fully deserved but he did still have his own hat-trick of sorts. For this was the third season running where Carroll has utterly...
