Former title rivals Spurs, Leicester face off in clash of contrasting centre-backs

ESPN FC's Stewart Robson and Steve Nicol say Spurs are struggling to score without Harry Kane in the lineup.

They meet as opposites and equivalents. When Tottenham host Leicester on Saturday, it is not merely a reunion of the 2015-16 Premier League title rivals. It's a clash of ideas about how to prevent goals from being scored. The match should offer an example of completely contrasting centre-backs, but with the caveat that last season showed that very different methods can both be successful.

Leicester's Wes Morgan and Robert Huth are the throwback duo, all brawn and bulk. Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld...

After back to back defeats, the pressure is starting to mount on Alan Pardew and his new style of play.

Alan Pardew is a manager haunted by his past. Whether it's the long-term difficulty he faced at Newcastle United, or the more recent form at Palace, it creeps up on him whenever there's a sign of something going wrong.

The problem that he faces is multifaceted -- a mixture of mistrust, a lack of accountability and a record for streaks of poor performances. It happened at Newcastle, and it's happening again at Crystal Palace.

Saturday's 2-0 win over Hull City marked the first time in 11 months that Stoke City had managed to secure back to back wins with clean sheets in what has been an otherwise miserable 2016 for manager Mark Hughes and his players.

It's perhaps even more of an achievement that it was accomplished without the considerable talents of Jack Butland and Glen Johnson; two mainstays of the Potters' back five currently out through injury.

With Butland back in training, his prospects for a swift return look...

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic denounces fan trouble during EFL Cup match

The ESPN FC crew question Antonio Conte's squad selection in their 2-1 EFL Cup defeat at rivals West Ham.
Goals from Cheikhou Kouyate and Edimilson Fernandes sent West Ham past Chelsea and into the EFL Cup quarterfinals.
Crowd troubled marred West Ham's EFL Cup match with Chelsea on Wednesday.

West Ham boss Slaven Bilic has condemned the supporters who clashed with visiting Chelsea fans, marring his side's EFL Cup win at London Stadium.

Skirmishes broke out towards the end of the Hammers' impressive 2-1 fourth-round win as police and stewards battled to maintain segregation behind the goal being defended by West Ham.

Bilic, perhaps understandably, wished to focus on the fine performance of his team and was frustrated at facing questions about the "unacceptable'' behaviour of a minority.
