Stuttering Chelsea retained their Premier League lead by virtue of the alphabet heading into the New Year but will need a quick riposte at home to Newcastle United on Saturday to hold Manchester City at bay. Jose Mourinho's side gleaned a mere four points from nine during a frenzy of holiday fixtures and a humbling 5-3 loss at Tottenham Hotspur on January 1 meant champions City restored parity at the top having at one stage trailed by eight points. An easy FA Cup win over second tier Watford offered Chelsea a breather, but they host managerless Newcastle knowing their margin for error between now and May is miniscule.
New Year’s Day couldn’t have been any better for a football fan as all 20 teams from the Barclays Premier League were in action on 1January 2014. Manchester United were up against Stoke City while Liverpool entertained Leicester City. Southampton awaited Arsenal and Manchester City were in action against Sunderland. But the big clash of the day was at White Hart Lane between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea. The day commenced at the Britannia Stadium where the Red Devils and Stoke played out a 1-1 draw. Radamel Falcao netted the equaliser after Ryan Shawcross had put the Potters into the lead within two first-half minutes. Peter Crouch struck the upright and at the end both sides had to settle for a point. Manchester City looked to return to winning ways and they were made to toil hard for the three points at the Etihad Stadium. Following a goalless first-half Yaya Toure and Stevan Jovetic scored to give the defending champions a two-goal advantage. But Sunderland managed to draw level thanks to two form ...
Fabregas chasing records & a first for Manchester United in 85 games.. The Chelsea midfielder has recorded 13 assists after 18 games - the most of any player at the midway point - while Louis Van Gaal named a rare unchanged team against Tottenham Hotspur. THE ARCHITECT In the end, Chelsea saw neither of the Manchester clubs gain on them despite two dropped points at Southampton. The Saints took an early lead and dominated the opening 45 minutes, so much so that Chelsea did not record a single shot until injury time at the end of the first half. Sadly for the home side this opening shot from the league leaders resulted in an equaliser, with Cesc Fabregas once again recording an assist. The former Barcelona man now has 13 assists this season, more than any player has previously managed after 18 Premier League appearances, and as many as anyone recorded in the whole of 2013-14. CITY SLIPPERS The shuffled kick-off times in the Premier League on Sunday meant that by the time Manchester City came in at half-tim ...
Southampton, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, West Ham and Manchester City all drop points.
While Chelsea and Manchester City slug it out at the top of the Premier League, Louis Van Gaal's Old Trafford revolution gathers ever more momentum in the red half of Manchester. The Dutchman endured a tricky start to his reign but seven wins in eight league games have put United hot on the heels of the pacesetters. If the current United side can emulate the teams of Alex Ferguson who were renowned for a strong second half of the season, Van Gaal's men could yet have their say in the destiny of the title. United visit Tottenham Hotspur in a lunchtime kickoff today as the games continue to flow thick and fast over the festive period. 'The signs have been good in recent weeks,' midfielder Michael Carrick told the club website (ManUtd.com). 'We were bitterly disappointed not to win last week (at Aston Villa) but we beat Newcastle and now have two big away games. They will be a good test for us to see where we are at.' After the trip to Spurs, United - seven points behind City and 10 adrift of Chelsea - are a ...
Chelsea and City pass West test as well as Man U and Southamton win . . . . . . . . . . Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United showed their rivals no seasonal cheer on Friday as they consolidated their positions in the Premier League table with one-sided Boxing Day victories. Leaders Chelsea set the tone by overcoming West Ham United 2-0. City followed suit with a 3-1 success at West Bromwich Albion and United kept pace by beating Newcastle United 3-1, with Wayne Rooney scoring twice and making one. Chelsea continue to lead City by three points, with United seven points further back, while West Ham's loss allowed Southampton, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Swansea City and Liverpool to make up ground in the race for the top four. Goals in each half from John Terry and Diego Costa – his 13th of the campaign – earned Jose Mourinho's Chelsea a one-sided home win over West Ham, who slipped to fifth. West Ham were expected to provide a stern test after a run of five games without defeat, but despite . ...
10 questions for the weekend With yet another huge weekend of Premier League football ahead of us, we ponder 10 questions that will be answered by Monday evening ... Can the Saints get back to winning ways at Turf Moor? Southampton were absolutely flying when they travelled to struggling Aston Villa for a Monday Night Football clash last month, only for the south coast club’s form to have dipped alarmingly since then. And while the Saints have had to face the likes of Premier League champions Manchester City, FA Cup winners Arsenal, and high-flying Manchester United in that time, head coach Ronald Koeman will be desperate for his side to get back to winning ways, and quickly, starting with Saturday’s trip to take on relegation-threatened Burnley at Turf Moor. However, the Dutchman will not be fretting just yet given how well Southampton played on Monday evening in their 2-1 home loss to United at St Mary’s. Will Diego Costa end his goalscoring drought against the Tigers? When Diego Costa opened the ...
host Hull, Arsenal face Magpies Jose Mourinho expects Chelsea to make amends for their first defeat of the season when the Premier League leaders host Hull on Saturday. Mourinho's side saw their 23-match unbeaten run in all competitions come to a surprise end with a 2-1 defeat at Newcastle last weekend. The loss allowed second placed Manchester City to close within three points of the Blues. But Chelsea quickly got back to winning ways against Sporting Lisbon in the Champions League in midweek and Mourinho is confident his players will maintain their recovery by seeing off struggling Hull at Stamford Bridge. "The response is to play well and to try to win every game. It's what we are doing since the beginning of the season," Mourinho said. "Results are results, but what can we do more than we are doing? "Playing very, very well. Not one single bad performance, good spirit, good individual performances. "You cannot be better than first in the Premier League, top of the league in the group phase and quarter ...

Clasico boasted Europe's most expensive lineups, study reveals Real Madrid's meeting with Barcelona at the Bernabeu last month saw the most expensive collection of players on the field of any match in Europe this season, according to a CIES Football Observatory study. The clasico in October saw talent worth 690 million euros take to the field, despite the absence of the injured Gareth Bale, who was reported to have cost Madrid 100 million euros when he joined from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013. Additionally, Barcelona did not pay fees for Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets, Pedro or Sergi Roberto, who all featured in their side's 3-1 defeat, while Madrid captain Iker Casillas also emerged through his club's academy. REALMadrid, whose side featured big money signings including Cristiano Ronaldo and James Rodriguez, contributed 424 million euros to the total, with Luis Suarez and Neymar contributing the bulk of Barca's 267 million euros. Manchester City's 1-1 draw at home to Chelsea in September was ...
Premier League FLASHBACK It was back in 1992 when the top division in English football broke away from the rest of the league to form the inaugural FA Carling Premier League.

England Under-21s striker Harry Kane continued his impressive goalscoring form for Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday with a free-kick winner against Aston Villa. The 21-year-old has been amongst the goals for both club and country so far this season and his appearance from the bench in the second half at Villa Park helped Spurs come back from behind to collect all three points, courtesy of Kane's first Premier League strike this campaign. Elsewhere, Three Lions goalkeeper Joe Hart kept a clean sheet for Manchester City as they secured a 1-0 derby win over Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium. Hart kept out, amongst others, the returning Wayne Rooney after the England captain made his return from suspension to the starting line-up for United. Read the full round-up here:

Premier League RESULT: Man City vs Tottenham 4-1 (18/10/2014) Manchester City's dominance over Tottenham Hotspur continued as the visitors, after being reduced to 10 men, succumbed to a 4-1 reverse with all four goals coming from Sergio Aguero.

Sergio Aguero netted four times in a contest which produced four penalties, with Manchester City beating 10-man Tottenham Hotspur 4-1.
Premier League - Four goals from Aguero give Man City easy win over Tottenham Etihad Stadium: Manchester City 4 (Aguero 13, 20 pen, 68 pen, 75) Tottenham Hotspur 1 (Eriksen 15)A quartet of Sergio Aguero goals steered Manchester City to a comfortable win over Tottenham in a crazy and controversial game with four penalties. Aguero opened the scoring in the 13th minute after picking up the ball on the left side of the box, cutting back, and then pausing to evaluate his options. Just when it seemed as though too much time had passed, he let fly with a fantastic shot, powering past the despairing hands of Hugo Lloris. The advantage did not last long. Fernando got caught in possession, allowing Roberto Soldado to set up Christian Eriksen, whose shot bounced off Joe Hart’s legs and into the net. The first of a quartet of penalties in the match arrived four minutes later as Frank Lampard fell forward under a challenge from Erik Lamela. The decision may have been questionable, but the conversion was not as Aguer ...

EPL SPECIAL : WEEK 8 OVERVIEW It's been quite a long time and I felt my own absence from this page. At long last we are here again waiting for what we missed. It's been 2 whole weeks we saw something really intriguing in our beloved leagues across Europe, most especially our darling EPL. I can't go into detail or the various games right now but we have a very mouth watering clash coming up in a few minutes' time as Manchester City takes on Tottenham Hotspur at home. What do we expect? I expect a high scoring game given both sides recent history with Spurs always at the receiving end while playing against an Aguero-ful City. Chelsea will try to avoid a second successive defeat at Selhurst Park as they travel across town to face Crystal Palace. With news about Diego Costa's injury flying around, we wait to see the starting line up otherwise it's time for Loic Remy to prove his worth. Arsenal takes on their last season's FA cup final foes, in what I term " grudge match". Hull City will be looking to avenge t ...
PL pre-match stats: Worst Wenger start We have statistics ahead of every Premier League game this weekend, including details of record good and bad starts for Chelsea and Arsenal. After a two-week break for internationals, the Premier League makes a welcome return this weekend.

Manchester United returned to the Premier League's top four for the first time in more than a year as Radamel Falcao's first United goal proved decisive against Everton. Angel Di Maria's calm finish gave the hosts a lead that survived to half-time as Leighton Baines saw a penalty saved. Baines picked out Steven Naismith to nod in an equaliser and Falcao cleared a Phil Jagielka header off the line. But Falcao stabbed in from Di Maria's shot to grab the winner. Everton, who have won only one of their first seven league games, could easily have taken something from the game but Bryan Oviedo, who scored the winner in the fixture last season, was denied by a tremendous stoppage-time save from David De Gea. - Chelsea stretched their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points on Sunday when they beat London rivals Arsenal 2-0 as surprise package Southampton went down 1-0 at Tottenham Hotspur. Unfancied Southampton's first defeat since the opening day of the season allowed champions Manchester City to s ...
BR has praised the desire and ability of Liverpool's marauding full-backs, Alberto Moreno and Javier Manquillo, insisting the pair are settling seamlessly into life on Merseyside. Kopites have warmed quickly to the Spanish duo, who arrived from La Liga in the summer and have made an immediate mark for the Reds throughout 2014-15 so far. Signed from Sevilla in August, Moreno debuted against Manchester City at the Etihad before racing across the White Hart Lane turf six days later to rifle home a spectacular strike against Tottenham Hotspur. He was then impressive during the 2-1 victory over Ludogorets Razgrad on Tuesday night at Anfield, in a match that was settled by a stoppage-time penalty, converted by Steven Gerrard and earned by the sheer persistence of Manquillo. The 20-year-old, recruited from Atletico Madrid, raced forward as full-time beckoned, deep into the Kop penalty area, where he was fouled by Milan Borjan, the Ludogorets goalkeeper, allowing Gerrard to seal the win from 12 yards. Supporters ...

Adam Lallana included in Liverpool Squad for Sunday Clash. Midfielder Adam Lallana will be included in Liverpool's squad for their game at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. The 26-year-old is yet to make a competitive appearance for the Reds after picking up a knee injury in the first week of the club’s pre-season tour of the United States. But manager Brendan Rodgers will take the £25million England international to White Hart Lane. "Adam will be in the squad, for sure," Rodgers confirmed. "He has looked fantastic in training. "Of course he is well short of match fitness but in training for the last couple of weeks, he has been exceptional." Rodgers will *** the condition of his three defenders that sustained problems during Monday's 3-1 loss at Manchester City, Alberto Moreno (ankle), Martin Skrtel (knock) and Glen Johnson (thigh), with the latter of the trio looking most likely to miss the contest at White Hart Lane. Right-back Jon Flanagan is not yet ready to return as he continues to recover from a ...

Togo striker, Emmanuel Adebayor, has tipped Nigeria, there are four other African countries that will take part at the World Cup from next month. Algeria, Cameroon, Ghana and Ivory Coast are the four other nations. But the Tottenham Hotspur forward has picked the African champions to shine at the World Cup ahead of the other African representatives saying they “have all the ingredients to be good in the World Cup.” He explained that Nigeria’s Super Eagles because of their coach, Stephen Keshi, who managed Togo between 2004 and 2006 and qualified them for the 2006 World Cup. The Former Arsenal and Manchester City man also talked on the influence the trio of John Obi Mikel, Victor Moses and Vincent Enyeama will have in the Nigerian team during the World Cup. “Out of these teams, it [my choice for which of the African teams will go the furthest] would be Nigeria because of their concentration. Because of Stephen Keshi [the coach] – he knows a lot about football and everything. He has been there as ...

All those hating on Arsenal and making jokes about how 9 years is a long time between trophies, remember this: Manchester City went 35 years between winning major trophies, from the 1976 League Cup to the 2011 FA Cup. Liverpool has not won the league since 1990. Newcastle United has not won a major trophy since 1969. Manchester United went 26 years without winning the league from 1967 until they ended their drought by winning the newly formed Premier League in 1993. Tottenham Hotspur has not won the league since 1961. Have a nice day :)

Brendan Rodgers has revealed why his Liverpool players cannot wait to stride onto the Anfield pitch again when they host Barclays Premier League rivals Manchester City this Sunday. At their two most recent home fixtures, the Reds' passionate supporters have raised the decibel levels to generate atmospheres in which the manager's charges have dismantled their opponents. Ahead of the midweek clash with Sunderland last month, fans lined the streets outside the stadium to welcome their heroes, before the Kop roared their team to a handsome victory over Tottenham Hotspur. Having restored their two-point advantage at the summit of the division with a 2-1 triumph at West Ham United at the weekend, Rodgers and his squad are relishing the next obstacle in their path. "It will be great," the boss told Liverpoolfc.com of the top-of-the-table encounter against City. "The supporters will be really looking forward to that one. "My only thought is on the next training session - I need to prepare the team now and we'll h ...
BREAKING NEWS: An investigation by the English Football Association was launched and found that Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Everton and Tottenham Hotspur were involved in wrongdoing and match fixing conspiracies: subsequently these clubs are being relegated to League Two and forced decision as Manchester United being the Premier League leader as from today. SEE MORE:
Former Arsenal and England striker Alan Smith says Liverpool's defence will be as important as the form of Louis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge during the Reds' title run-in. "We do talk so often about this side's attack, about Suarez and Sturridge pulling up trees, about the gifted contributions of Raheem Sterling and Philippe Coutinho, not to mention Steven Gerrard prompting from behind." "Yet a rearguard that has not always looked too secure might prove just as important from here on in, especially when the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City pitch up at Anfield. Clean sheets like the one achieved against Tottenham Hotspur could prove just as crucial as all the fireworks exploding up the other end."
A quick morning update, and i suppose if you are a Liverpool supporters, this morning was a good morning to wake up. The Reds are top of the Barclays Premier League after a 4-0 demolition of Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield. The big win puts them two points clear of Chelsea, though Manchester City are lurking in third with two matches in hand. The win also helped local rivals Everton, who now have a 4 point lead on Spurs in 5th, and with a match in hand, are within striking distance of a Champions League spot. Meanwhile, the less mentioned about Australia's World T20 campaign the better, but they have suffered a humiliating 73-run loss to India overnight to remain winless in the tournament. India set the Australians at target of 160, however fell well short as they were bowled out for 86. There is a slim mathematical chance of semi final qualification with one match remaining against the hosts Bangladesh, but the cause is as good as gone. That's all for now, be back if any major stories break, as well as scor ...
So after todays results I predict the top 7 will finish like this: 1. Manchester City. 2. Liverpool. 3. Chelsea. 4. Arsenal. 5. Everton. 6. Manchester United. 7. Tottenham Hotspur. Do you agree?
Arsenal keep City in check, Chelsea crash Manchester City squandered an opportunity to replace Chelsea at the English Premier League summit after being held to a 1-1 draw by an improved Arsenal side. Chelsea's 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace meant that victory at the Emirates Stadium would have sent City top on goal difference, but they remain third after David Silva's opener was cancelled out by Mathieu Flamini. The day's events mean that only five points now separate leaders Chelsea and fourth-place Arsenal, who produced a much more determined display after last weekend's 6-0 demolition by Jose Mourinho's side. Chelsea's advantage is paper-thin, however, as City, who trail them by two points, have two games in hand, while second-place Liverpool will go top if they win at home to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. After Tomas Rosicky had seen an early penalty appeal turned down for Arsenal, City went ahead in the 18th minute when Silva prodded in after a shot from Edin Dzeko came back off the post. Arsenal centre-b ...
Manchester City will look to compound Arsene Wenger's woes when they visit the Emirates Stadium this weekend, knowing a win would take them closer to the Premier League title and inflict a potentially fatal blow to Arsenal's chances. Wenger's side have capitulated in recent weeks and a win for Manuel Pellegrini's team in London would almost certainly leave the battle for the Premier League crown as a three-way race between City, Liverpool and Chelsea. Arsenal, humiliated 6-0 at leaders Chelsea and held to a 2-2 home draw by Swansea City after conceding a last-minute equaliser on Tuesday, would have hoped for an easier match to revive their ailing title bid. City lie third with 66 points, three behind Chelsea but with two games in hand, and they will look to build on their impressive 3-0 win at bitter local rivals Manchester United on Tuesday. Jose Mourinho's Chelsea travel to struggling Crystal Palace and second-placed Liverpool, only a point off the top on 68 points, host Tottenham Hotspur. It is 10 year ...

Premier League - Paper Round: Real Madrid in for Hart Real Madrid are weighing up a shock move for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart; Arsenal are already planning for the post-Arsene Wenger era; and Tottenham Hotspur have made Romelu Lukaku their top summer target - here are the main stories making headlines in this morning's newspapers.
Premier League leaders Chelsea suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat at Aston Villa as Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City all won to close the gap at the top. City overcame the sending-off of captain Vincent Kompany to win 2-0 at Hull City and Arsenal's Tomas Rosicky struck in the second minute to earn his side a 1-0 victory at local rivals Tottenham Hotspur. Captain Steven Gerrard converted two penalties and Luis Suarez scored a late goal as Liverpool eased to a 3-0 win at champions Manchester United in the north-west derby. Chelsea top the standings with 66 points from 30 games, Liverpool and Arsenal have 62 from 29 and Manchester City are on 60 from 27.

Chelsea pull clear, Man Utd bounce back 08 Mar 2014 22:01:59 Quick-fire goals by Samuel Eto'o and Eden Hazard inspired Chelsea to a 4-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday that sent them seven points clear in the Premier League. Eto'o put Chelsea ahead in the 56th minute and Hazard added a penalty four minutes later after Younes Kaboul had been sent off for a foul on Eto'o. Demba Ba added a late brace. Eto'o's opener was gifted to him by Jan Vertonghen and both of Ba's goals also stemmed from errors, as Spurs' 23-year wait for victory at Stamford Bridge went on. Chelsea now lead Liverpool and Arsenal by seven points, but both teams have a game in hand, while fourth-place Manchester City, who are nine points off the pace, have three fixtures to fulfil. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho continued to play down his side's title chances, saying: "I would prefer to be in Man City's position, because they have three matches in hand. "We don't have control of our destiny. If we win all our matches, then maybe we a ...

We must always remember that one poor season doesn't mean that a manager won't turn it all around . The 1989-1990 season was the season when the Manchester United board held its nerve. Despite wholesale changes in personnel, Alex Ferguson struggled to create a winning team. As supporters called for his dismissal, the board stood by him, his team won the FA Cup and the successful nineties began. Lots of money was made available at the start of the season. Neil Webb, Mike Phelan, Gary Pallister, Paul Ince, Danny Wallace and Les Sealey all moved to Old Trafford. Inevitably the newcomers took time to settle. Despite an opening day 4-1 victory against league champions, Arsenal, the season didn’t begin particularly well. Four games were lost by the end of September, including one against Manchester City that City won 5-1. In October, Tottenham Hotspur knocked Manchester United out of the League Cup with a 3-0 victory at Old Trafford. The club’s league form in mid-winter was desperate. Between the end of Nov ...
Martinez says City's cup triumph doesn't alter Blues' ambitions. Ambitious Roberto Martinez says he won't allow Everton to settle for a sixth-placed finish. Manchester City's Capital One Cup triumph means the team that clinches sixth spot in the Barclays Premier League will earn a place in what was formerly the UEFA Cup as long as Manuel Pellegrini's side finish in the top five. City currently occupy fourth spot and sit four points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur with two games in hand. Everton, meanwhile, complete the top six, five points behind Spurs having played a game less and three points clear of nearest rivals Manchester United. But while holding on to their present position could potentially earn the Toffees a European run out for the first time since 2009/10, Martinez is adamant he wants his side to aim as high up the table as possible. "We've never had it in our aims to finish sixth," the Blues boss told evertontv. "We want to finish as high as we can and that's still the case. "Obvious ...
ABIDAL AND NASRI OUT: Center-back Eric Abidal and midfielder Samir Nasri were missing when France coach Didier Deschamps named a 24-man squad on Thursday for next week's friendly against the Netherlands. Forward Antoine Griezmann was one of two uncapped players, along with left-back Lucas Digne who replaces Manchester City's Gael Clichy, called up for Wednesday's game. The 22-year-old has scored 19 goals in 38 matches in all competitions with Real Sociedad this season. Winger Franck Ribery and centre back Mamadou Sakho, both recovering from injuries, were named in the squad. Manchester City's Nasri was disappointing when France lost their World Cup play-off first leg in Ukraine in November, before they recovered to win the tie without him at Stade de France. Abidal, who is having a hard time at Monaco, suffered the same fate at the end of last year. Asked if Abidal and Nasri had lost their chance of playing in the World Cup in Brazil, Deschamps said: "Interpretations are up to you. Many players are out of ...
Nigeria U-17 star, Musa Yahaya, has finally signed for Tottenham Hotspur, according to reports. The forward has also been immediately loaned out to Spanish side Celta Vigo. Yahaya had been linked with a four-year deal at Spurs for a long time, but he presumably wanted to *** all available options as powerhouses such as Arsenal, FC Barcelona and Manchester City were also interested in the player. Nevertheless, sources close to Yahaya have revealed that the striker is officially a Tottenham player now and that he has also been loaned out to La Liga outfit Celta Vigo. "Musa has signed for Spurs after he passed his medical, but he has been loaned to Celta Vigo", source close to the player told MTN Football. Yahaya was one of Nigeria's biggest stars at the U-17 World Cup last year, as he netted 4 goals in the tournament and was Golden Eaglets' second best scorer.
9JA PLAYERS ABROAD (ENGLAND) Joseph Yobo was at his best as Norwich City handed visiting Tottenham Hotspur a 1-0 defeat at Carrow Road. The Super Eagles skipper combined well with Sebastien Bassong in the Canaries' defence to thwart the attacking forays of Emmanuel Adebayor. Yobo has played three times this season for Norwich since his loan move from Fenerbahce. Osaze Odemwingie featured for 90 minutes as Stoke City lost 1-0 away to Manchester City. The Potters had fancied their chances of running away with a point before Yaya Toure’s goal gave Manuel Pellegrini’s side victory in the tough encounter. Osaze has played four games in the EPL this season with a goal to show for it. Victor Moses was a second half substitute as Liverpool survived Swansea scare in a seven goal thriller at Anfield Road. The Super Eagles star came on for Daniel Sturridge in the 79th minute and his contribution ensured that the Reds grabbed victory at home. The game was his 14th game of the season since he joined from Chelsea. ...
So Liverpool has been incredible compared to recent years but can they achieve a Champions League place? Imo, yes they can and here is why. HOME FORM. Liverpool’s home form has been superb this season losing only one game this year, the reds have won 85% of their home games this season and it could continue. The last league game at home was a shining example of how powerful we have been at home demolishing Arsenal 5-1. Liverpool’s record of 85% wins at home is miles ahead of the away wins percentage of 38%. With all this said we still have many games against top sides in the Premier League at home and with Suarez, Sturridge and Sterling in hot form we can take a lot of points in them games. Liverpool will face Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Chelsea at home, can they win them? , Of course they can. PLAYERS HOME PERFORMANCES. Luis Suarez has contributed so much at Anfield this season scoring 16 goals in 10 appearances at home but also assisting 4 times. Daniel Sturridge has 8 goals in 9 appearan ...
SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI: INTERNATIONAL FOOTBALL: Arsenal missed the change to go top of the Premier League as Liverpool moved to within four points of the summit yesterday ahead of their FA Cup clash with the Gunners. Arsene Wenger's men were held to a goalless draw at home to champions Manchester United while Liverpool had to twice come from behind before Steven Gerrard's stoppage-time penalty sealed a 3-2 win away to bottom-of-the table Fulham. Arsenal were left a point behind leaders Chelsea on a night when title rivals Manchester City saw their match at home to Sunderland postponed because of severe weather battering the north-west of England that also saw Everton's game against Crystal Palace called off. At St James' Park, Tottenham Hotspur, who looked as if they would move to within a point of fourth-placed Liverpool, remained three behind the Merseysiders despite Emmanuel Adebayor scoring twice in a crushing 4-0 win away to Newcastle. Elsewhere, Stoke and Swansea shared the points in a 1-1 d ...
Spurs Hook Eaglets’ Yahaya Another member of the victorious 2013 Golden Eaglets squad to the FIFA U-17 World Cup in United Arab Emirates, Musa Yahaya is on the verge of joining competition most valuable player, Kelechi Iheanacho in the English Premier League, following an agreement his agents have sealed with Tottenham Hotspur. Few months after Iheanacho’s much-celebrated deal with Manchester City, which should see the youngster commence a professional career with the Etihad moneybags once he turns 18, Yahaya has now found a major opening coming his way from The Citizens’ London-based EPL rivals. The report by allnigeriasoccer.com states further that Yahaya, hailed as Nigeria’s Neymar, is inching closer to completing a move to Spurs, as the product of Mutunchi Academy will arrive London this Saturday, February 15 to sign a preliminary contract. Incidentally, Tottenham beat off equally strong interest from two other clubs renowned for youth development feats, fellow-London-based EPL side, Arsenal . ...
Arsenal, Man U in crucial clash LONDON, FEB 10, 2014, REUTERS: AA David Moyes Arsenal and Manchester United will be out to make amends after a weekend of damaging results when they meet at Emirates in the Premier League on Wednesday. Arsenal lost top spot in the league after a 5-1 humiliation by a rampant Liverpool at Anfield, with their previously much-praised defence being torn to shreds as they conceded four goals in the first 20 minutes. Manager Arsene Wenger called the performance "feeble", and will be hopeful the defeat won't signal the end of Arsenal's title hopes as they face a run of matches taking in United, Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton by early March. Defender Per Mertesacker admitted the loss was a major setback, but called on Arsenal to summon the spirit they showed after December's 6-3 loss to Manchester City, when they went on to win six of their next eight matches. "We feel very bad at the moment, disappointed with our performance right from the start," the Germa ...

EPL Football - Liverpool face Arsenal: Swansea meet Cardiff; Tottenham host Everton: Liverpool's clash with Arsenal kicks off a big weekend also featuring a vital Welsh derby and key contests at both ends of the table. Chelsea's victory at the Etihad Stadium on Monday night left the title race tantalisingly poised but it is Arsenal who lead by two points ahead of their trip to Anfield, with Jose Mourinho's men preparing to host Newcastle United and Manchester City travelling to Norwich City.

Friday 07 February 2014 Pellegrini and Johnson secure Barclays monthly awards January gongs go to the Manchester City manager and the Sunderland winger Manuel Pellegrini has claimed successive Barclays monthly awards Adam Johnson has won the Barclays Player of the Month for the first time Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini and Sunderland winger Adam Johnson have been rewarded for impressive performances at the start of the year by winning the Barclays monthly awards for January. Pellegrini has guided his side to four victories out of four Barclays Premier League matches and he becomes the first person to collect back-to-back Barclays Manager of the Month Awards since Chelsea's Carlo Ancelotti in 2011. Three of City's matches in January were away from home, against Swansea City, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur while they beat Cardiff City at home. Man City continued their free-scoring form by netting 14 times in the process. Man City's 12 points enabled them to maintain their title challenge ...
Kenny Dalglish claims Liverpool are 'in a very good position' to achieve their top-four dreams this season. The Reds face Barclays Premier League leaders Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday hoping to close the eight-point gap between the two sides. And, with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur still to visit Merseyside this term, the Kop idol believes there is no reason why Brendan Rodgers' charges can't return to the pinnacle of European competition. Dalglish said: "Liverpool are in fourth spot right now and someone has to come and take it off them because they are not going to give it up. "They are two points better off than the team below them [Everton] and they have a massively better goal difference. "They have all the big teams apart from United to come to Anfield, and as the team immediately below them found out last week they are pretty awesome at Anfield. "You have to play one game at a time but they are in a very good position at a good time." The legendary No.7 points to the ...
Arsène Wenger is adamant that Arsenal can defy both their doubters and the ominous form of Manchester City to win their first Premier League title for a decade. Arsenal’s 2-0 win against Crystal Palace yesterday meant they moved back above City and also cemented a likely top-four finish after Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur all dropped points this weekend. City will return to the top if they beat Chelsea tonight and are clear favourites to win the Premier League following a sequence of 27 goals in eight successive wins. It was put to Wenger last night that no one outside of Arsenal expects them to win the title. “In the last seven years you have engraved that in your brain,” he said. “It’s hard to get out now. We haven’t done it for a while. I must say we face quality competitors. We do not play against average teams. City have scored over 100 goals, so everyone thinks 'can you beat this team?' I say yes. It’s now how we finish the season.”
Spurs and City wait on 'new Neymar': Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City are becoming frustrated in th...
Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero is out for a month with a hamstring injury he sustained in the midweek win at Tottenham Hotspur. Midfielders Samir Nasri and Javi Garcia are also unavailable, with knee and muscle injuries respectively. Chelsea will monitor the fitness of winger Mohamed Salah following his move from Basel. Salah missed Wednesday's derby against West Ham along with Fernando Torres, who is sidelined with a knee injury. It could be explosive. It's bound to be fascinating. Having been frustrated by West Ham's "19th Century football", Jose Mourinho now has to come up with a plan to counter football from another planet. Well, not quite, but football being played by "the best team on the planet", according to Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood. It's a match that pitches the Premier League's most potent attack against its tightest defence, which in itself shows the massive difference a change of coach can have on the ethos of a club. Last season Roberto Mancini's City were the most miserly team arou ...

Stand against modern football. "Let's start with a riddle, The Fiver likes riddles. Who doesn't like riddles? OK, here goes: When is football not football? When it's notfootball. Yesterday, Manchester City annihilated Tottenham Hotspur (again). In so doing, they played with magnificent, uplifting attacking verve and invention, delivering the kind of performance that every supporter is desperate to see from their team. This is football. Yesterday, Manchester City published their latest financial accounts. In so doing, they revealed a loss of £52m. Though The Fiver is not one for mathematics, it is able to deduce that 52,000,000 is a big number, and is smaller than 97,900,000, the amount of English pounds lost by the club last year. And this difference – 45,900,000 – was achieved despite a huge payment made to the sacked former manager Roberto Mancini, and a wage bill rising from £201.7m to £233.1m.

Very good analysis. Read it. "The End of the Andre Villas-Boas Experiment at Tottenham And just like that, Tottenham Hotspur’s Andre Villas-Boas experiment is over. Less than a year and a half after being hired, and only 16 games after being gifted with seven new first-team players to integrate into his squad, Villas-Boas was shown the door by Spurs chairman Daniel Levy (technically, it was a mutual agreement of both parties) after a disastrous 5-0 home defeat to Liverpool. The unsettling thing about the abrupt end to the AVB era at Spurs is that it feels like the reasons for his departure didn’t have all that much to do with the problems facing Tottenham Hotspur this season. It sure seems like the three primary motivators for Villas-Boas’s exit were a 3-0 home loss to West Ham on October 6, a 6-0 road loss to Manchester City on November 24, and Sunday’s evisceration at the hands of Liverpool. Gabriele Marcotti reported that it wasn’t until after a postmatch meeting between Villas-Boas and Spurs ...
Man United reach League Cup semis unitedLONDON: Manchester United beat Stoke City 2-0 to reach the League Cup semi-finals on Wednesday, while the post-Andre Villas-Boas era at Tottenham Hotspur began with defeat by West Ham United. After a first-half hailstorm briefly forced the teams off the pitch at the Britannia Stadium, United prevailed through fine strikes from Ashley Young and Patrice Evra. Their reward was a semi-final tie against Sunderland, 2-1 victors over Chelsea on Tuesday, while West Ham will play Manchester City, with the first legs of both ties due to be played in the week beginning January 6. “The first goal tonight, whoever got it was going to make a big difference,” United manager David Moyes told Sky Sports. “It was a tight game. We had some good play at times. We hadn’t created too many chances, but I didn’t think Stoke City created too many chances either.” On the prospect of facing Sunderland, he added: “It’s a cup game. It shows you how well Sunderland played-they be ...

Five problems facing Spurs By SAPA London – Tottenham Hotspur are looking to appoint a sixth permanent manager since 2004 after sacking Portuguese head coach Andre Villas-Boas on Monday. Spurs have been beaten 5-0 by Liverpool and 6-0 by Manchester City in the last month, leaving them seventh in the Premier League table and compromising hopes of a top-four finish. Here are some of the most pressing issues awaiting attention in the in-tray of Villas-Boas's successor. 1 Sharpen the attack Spurs ceded last season's 26-goal top scorer Gareth Bale to Real Madrid during the close season, but their loss of potency in attack has nonetheless been alarming. Despite lavishing around £70 million on attacking players Roberto Soldado, Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen and Nacer Chadli, Spurs have scored only 15 goals in 16 league games. Soldado, a £26 million acquisition from Valencia, has only scored four times in the league, with Jermain Defoe reduced to a bit-part role despite being the top goal-scorer in the Europ ...
News Update | Spurs sack Villas-Boas ANDRE Villas-Boas was sacked as Tottenham Hotspur manager today after two Premier League thrashings in three weeks exposed the side's frailties despite a transfer outlay of over 100 million pounds during the summer. Spurs were humiliated 5-0 by Liverpool in front of their own fans yesterday, having been thrashed 6-0 by Manchester City last month. The club announced the Portuguese coach's departure "by mutual consent" in a statement on their website (www.tottenhamhotspur.com). The former Porto coach, who took over in July 2012, lasted longer than in his previous job at Chelsea, where he was sacked eight months into his first season. Although they are going strong in the Europa League and Capital One Cup, Spurs are seventh in the league, eight points behind local rivals and leaders Arsenal. Villas-Boas becomes the fifth Premier League manager to lose his job this season after Paolo Di Canio (Sunderland), Ian Holloway (Crystal Palace), Martin Jol (Fulham) and Steve Clarke ...
Show you can fill the void left by Steven Gerrard - that's the message from Brendan Rodgers to his midfield players ahead of Liverpool's hectic Christmas schedule. Rodgers confirmed on Thursday that his captain would face at least four weeks on the sidelines after picking up a hamstring injury against West Ham United last weekend. It means Gerrard will play no part as the Reds travel to Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Manchester City - all in the space of a fortnight. Rodgers insists there is no like-for-like replacement for the man who, at 33 years of age, has played every minute in all but three of his side's games this season. However, he believes the England skipper's absence could hand one of his teammates a golden opportunity to stake a claim for a starting place. "Steven is a unique player and the captain here at the football club," the manager told Liverpoolfc.com. "There's no direct replacement for him. "His stature in the game and his quality in the game is hard to replace. But we've got players ...

The FA Cup third-round draw has handed Arsenal a North London derby with neighbours Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium. Cup holders Wigan Athletic were given a home draw with Milton Keynes Dons while last year's beaten finalists Manchester City will go to Blackburn Rovers. Of the non-league sides, Macclesfield were drawn at home to Sheffield Wednesday, Grimsby will take on Huddersfield Town at Blundell Park and Kidderminster have a home tie against Peterborough. Manchester United face Swansea City at Old Trafford while Chelsea will travel to Derby County. Liverpool will face a home tie against either Mansfield, who they beat in the third round last season, or Oldham Athletic, who knocked them out in the fourth. But the stand out tie is the North London derby and both sides will be hoping to go all the way. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger concedes his side could have been handed an easier first hurdle. "There are not enough tough games, they gave us another one," he quipped when asked about the draw followin ...
Good morning everyone, and we begin the morning with news from the Adelaide Oval that Australia has declared their second innings at 3/132, a lead of 530 runs. While it seems a very odd time, it is weather that is apparently a factor in Michael Clarke's decision to put England into bat first up this morning, with storms scheduled this afternoon. Dave Warner finished 83 not out, while Steve Smith was 25 not out. 10 wickets for Australia to lead the Ashes series 2-0, and red hot favourites to win back the urn for the first time since 2007. Alastair Cook and Michael Carberry are about to face the first ball, with a minimum of 180 overs to survive. In other news from overnight, if you missed the Barclays Premier League last night, it was an exciting night of upsets, goals and great football, with Manchester United and Chelsea in shock upsets, while Manchester City drew with Southampton.

Luis Suarez scored four goals as Liverpool thrashed Norwich City on a night when the top five extended their advantage over much of the chasing pack. • Crystal Palace 1-0 West Ham Premier League leaders Arsenal continued their excellent start to the season by beating Hull City, Chelsea recorded a hard-fought victory at Sunderland and Manchester City brushed aside their poor away record to beat West Bromwich Albion. Fifth-placed Everton, meanwhile, kept pace with their city rivals as Roberto Martinez got the better of David Moyes with a 1-0 win at Manchester United as Newcastle United and Southampton also suffered disappointing losses that allowed Tottenham Hotspur to move up three places to sixth. Suarez was the star of the show as Liverpool bounced back from their defeat at Hull to win 5-1 against Norwich at Anfield. The forward continued his excellent scoring record against the Canaries with a first-half hat trick, netting a sublime opener from range after a quarter of an hour, adding a second from cl ...
Onus on City to chase Arsenal - Mourinho Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho believes the pressure is on Manchester City to lead the way in this season's Premier League title race. Mourinho thinks that there are six contenders to win the championship, but he has warned Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur that they could find themselves cut adrift if they allow the gap to leaders Arsenal to grow. And while the Portuguese insists there are no clear favourites, he feels that the strength of City's squad gives Manuel Pellegrini's side an advantage. "I keep saying the same. I don't think we can speak about favourites but we can say that one team is top of the league and some are a little bit far, but I keep thinking that all six teams are title contenders," he said on Tuesday.
Wayne Rooney salvaged a 2-2 draw for Manchester United at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday but the Premier League champions lost further ground as Chelsea and Manchester City offered further evidence that they will lead the pursuit of Arsenal. Chelsea recovered from going behind after 13 seconds to beat Southampton 3-1 at home with John Terry scoring on his 400th league appearance for the club and free-scoring Man City climbed to third after spanking Swansea City 3-0. City, for whom Samir Nasri netted twice, have now scored 16 goals in their last three home matches. Liverpool began the day in second place but faltered, losing 3-1 at Hull City.
Tottenham Hotspur went into Sunday ahead of Manchester City in the table. They ended it beaten and embarrassed, subjected to a 6-0 thrashing that vaulted Manuel Pellegrini's side above them into fourth place. Every fault in the visitors' play was ruthlessly exploited as City dominated from start to finish, their formerly dominant defence left in tatters by the combination of Jesus Navas and Sergio Aguero. MORE FROM OUR TEAM SITES Manchester CitY City blog Bitter and Blue TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR Spurs blog Cartilage Free Captain City took the lead within seconds of kickoff. Spurs played the ball back to Hugo Lloris, back after the head injury he sustained at Goodison Park, and his upfield kick was directed straight at Aguero. The first shot was stopped, but Jesus Navas seized possession and sent a delightful lob into the top corner from an acute angle. The visitors didn't seem to let their heads drop after their appalling start, and they might have found their way back into the game immediately through Erik Lame ...

Transfer News: Andre Villas-Boas rules out a move for a left-back in January - FJ Tottenham Hotspur coach Andre Villas-Boas has no intention of dipping into the January transfer market for a left-back. Spurs have found themselves short in that area following an injury to Danny Rose. Jan Vertonghen's versatility has allowed him to provide cover of an international class, but he openly admits to feeling far from happy in a full-back berth. That has led some to suggest that Villas-Boas will look to bolster his ranks in the New Year, having been strongly linked with Real Madrid's Fabio Coentrao over the summer. The Portuguese tactician is, however, of the opinion that he has no need to spend on defensive reinforcements. Asked if a left-back is in his thoughts ahead of Sunday's trip to Manchester City, Villas-Boas said: "No, I don't think so. "Danny Rose is still out but making good progress on his injury so we're looking for a two or three-week period now finally for his return." Villas-Boas has also sought t ...

Manchester City & Tottenham are battling for the Signature of young Spanish starlet Sergi Darder - Malaga wonderkid Sergi Darder is reportedly attracting the interest of Premier League duo Manchester City and Tottenham according to . The 19-year-old Spaniard stepped up for Bernd Schuster’s Malaga after the sale of many of the world- class stars this season and has already made ten appearances in the La Liga. His excellent performances with Malaga has caught the attention of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur who are now said to be seriously thinking about weighing up a bid for the the ex-Espanyol trainee. According to Spanish sources, Malaga will not accept offers under the region of £11m for Sergi Darder, an amount that both City and Spurs will gladly play for the wonderkid, who is touted to be the rising star of Spanish football in the years to come alongside the likes of Real Madrid play- maker Isco and Barcelona’s Sergi Roberto.
City players dig deep to push through 31 October London - Manchester City reached the quarter-finals of the League Cup after they finally broke down a resilient Newcastle United to win 2-0 after extra time on Wednesday, while Tottenham Hotspur needed penalties to get past Hull City. City, who made 10 changes from the team that played Chelsea in the league on Sunday, were far from fluent but came through a testing encounter with goals from substitute Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko in the first period of extra time. Tottenham earned a late reprieve when Harry Kane made it 2-2 in extra time and then booked a place in the last eight when Hull's Ahmed Elmohamady missed his penalty to hand Spurs an 8-7 win. It was Tottenham's first penalty shootout victory in eight attempts since they beat Peterborough in the FA Cup in 1994. Gylfi Sigurdsson had put them ahead after 16 minutes with a rocket finish before a Brad Friedel own goal ensured the tie went to extra time. Paul McShane put Hull, who lost 1-0 to Tottenham ...
Spurs survive Hull scare, City advance Tottenham Hotspur edged Hull City 8-7 in a tense penalty shoot-out to reach the English League Cup quarter-finals, while Manchester City overcame Newcastle United after extra time. Hull had lost 1-0 to Spurs in the English Premier League on Sunday and they came within a whisker of exacting swift revenge on their return to White Hart Lane. Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson was one of the players brought into the Spurs team and he made a stunning impact in the 16th minute, flummoxing his marker with a neat drag-back and then arrowing a sumptuous shot home from 25 yards. Second-choice goalkeeper Brad Friedel made a less favourable impression, however, gifting Hull an equaliser in the 53rd minute. Liam Rosenior's low cross from the right was hooked back across goal by the sliding Curtis Davies and Friedel inadvertently fumbled the ball into his own net for an own goal. Spurs saw 20-year-old midfielder Harry Kane rattle the woodwork from 20 yards in stoppage time, but ...

LONDON (AFP) - Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur breezed into the League Cup fourth round on Tuesday, while Sunderland began life without Paolo Di Canio by beating Peterborough United. Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho handed Juan Mata a rare start at third-tier Swindon Town and he created the opening goal in the 29th minute with a shot that was parried by Wes Foderingham for Fernando Torres to tap home. Ramires doubled the visitors' lead six minutes later, poking the ball over the advancing Foderingham from Torres's astute pass to complete the scoring in a 2-0 victory. Ramires had only come on as a substitute for the injured Marco van Ginkel in the 10th minute but he had to cede his place at half-time, with John Terry coming on. "We all know the cups are important and to win away against teams in the lower divisions is difficult," Torres told Sky Sports. "For the players who have not played in the last few matches, it was good to play. Everyone is happy. It is one step forward." Fresh from their 4 ...

The Premier League has made available the 2013 Premier League Free Transfer List, with a number of high profile players not offered new contracts with their clubs. Last season’s runners up Manchester City have released Wayne Bridge, Roque Santa Cruz and Kolo Toure amongst others, with the latter set to join Liverpool next month. Arsenal have let the most players go, with Andrey Arshavin, Denilson and Sebastien Squillaci the biggest names to have left the club. Yossi Benayoun, Florent Malouda and Paolo Ferreira head the list of Chelsea casualties, while goalkeepers Hilario and Ross Turnbull have also been told to find new clubs. Two time Premier League winner William Gallas has been released by Tottenham Hotspur, along with David Bentley, who has fallen way down the pecking order at White Hart Lane in recent seasons. Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, Matthew Upson of Stoke City and Sunderland’s Titus Bramble are some of the other notable names on the list.
rance winger Malouda, 32, was frozen out of the first-team picture after featuring in last season’s Champions League final win over Bayern Munich, electing to bide his time instead of taking a pay cut to move to his homeland or Brazil, where he has roots and had been reportedly interested in playing. The former Lyon man, who sold him to Chelsea for £13 million in 2007, is now expected to return to France, although he is unlikely to command the £80,000 per week he earned at Stamford Bridge. His Chelsea team-mates Yossi Benayoun and Paulo Ferreira were also released, while another ex Chelsea defender William Gallas was not given a contract extension by Tottenham Hotspur. Gallas joined Spurs from North London rivals Arsenal in 2010, and is joined on the free agents list by one-time England winger David Bentley, who struggled to break into the Tottenham team and spent time on loan at FK Rostov in Russia and former club Blackburn Rovers. Roque Santa Cruz was released by Manchester City after loan spells at ...

Wigan relegated after Arsenal loss By Robert Woodward London - Wigan Athletic became the first team to be relegated from England's top flight in the same season as winning the FA Cup after they lost 4-1 at Arsenal, with Lukas Podolski scoring twice, in the Premier League on Tuesday. The victory keeps Arsenal in pole position to claim fourth spot and a place in next year's Champions League.

Fernandez looked all set for a move to the Spanish capital but a deal with Real Madrid fell through and allowed Diego Lopez to sign for the reigning La Liga champions instead.

Monday 14 January 2013 15.46 GMT Premier League split over domestic financial fair play regulations Arsenal, Liverpool, Spurs and Manchester United are calling for robust domestic laws against objections of Chelsea, Manchester City, Fulham, Aston Villa and West Bromwich The leaked letter signed by officials of Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur emanated from the Emirates Stadium. Photograph: Oli Scarff/Getty Images Owen Gibson It was hardly in the spirit of the season. But the fact that a robust pre-Christmas letter to Premier League headquarters arguing that a mooted domestic version of Uefa's Financial Fair Play should be as robust as possible emanated from the Emirates should not come as a surprise. Of all top-flight clubs Arsenal are keenest on ensuring the concept, introduced by Uefa last season and limiting clubs to losses of €45m (£37.5m) over three seasons, sticks. Ivan Gazidis, the chief executive, sees the introduction of some sanity to football's overheated finances ...

SPARE US THE FALSE RAGE! Suárez merely did what he is paid to do: score goals. The howls of outrage are hypocritical. There are very few supporters who are horrified when their team cheat to score or stop a goal. Liverpool fans would have been grinning all the way back to Merseyside last night. Few bleeding hearts there. It’s not just foreigners who do this sort of thing, either. Francis Lee, a man as English as Eccles cakes, deliberately knocked in a cross with a hand in an FA Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur in 1973. He gloated that the goal, the decisive score in a 3-2 win for Manchester City, “came in handy, a handy header”. It’s part of City folklore, a tale told with a smile and no sense of shame. Tottenham fans will never forgive Lee. That’s how it works. Plenty of people will invoke some unrealistic and non-existent Corinthian spirit, but right and wrong tend to be entirely subjective in football. In Cameroon, they remember the World Cup quarter-final of 1990 as “the game when Gary ...
Manchester City lose Yaya Touré early for Africa Cup of Nations • Roberto Mancini frustrated as Ivory Coast demand release • Midfielder, Kolo Touré and Abdul Razak to miss Watford game Roberto Mancini, who is battling to claw back Manchester United's seven-point lead over Manchester City as he tries to retain the title, now has to overcome the loss of Yaya Touré for up to six weeks due to Africa Cup of Nations (CAN) duty. Touré, plus his brother Kolo and Abdul Razak, a squad player, are all now missing from Mancini's plans as they leave for a meeting with the Ivory Coast that was a surprise as the Italian manager thought they would depart after Saturday's FA Cup third-round visit of Watford. Perhaps significantly for the destination of this season's championship, United are one of only five clubs who will have no players absent when the remainder leave for the tournament, an exodus expected to start following the weekend's FA Cup action. If the participation of Tottenham Hotspur's Emmanuel Adebyor ...

31 December 2012 9:23 AM STEPHANE Sessegnon says Sunderland must shrug off the demands of the festive fixture programme to get back among the points in the last of four quick-fire Premier League encounters. Sunderland face their fourth league outing in 12 days when they head to Anfield on Wednesday, where Martin O’Neill’s slender options will be further depleted by the loss of injured centre-back John O’Shea. The Black Cats looked leggy in the second half of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur after producing a Herculean effort on Boxing Day to beat reigning Premier League champions Manchester City. But with Sunderland still able to secure a half-time lead against Spurs and demonstrating the renewed confidence within the camp, Sessegnon insists fatigue should not de-rail the Black Cats’ bid to widen the gap with the drop zone, which was reduced to five over the weekend. Sessegnon told the Echo: “Obviously fatigue plays a part because it was such a big effort against Manchester City. “ ...

Norwich City continued its revival with a 1-0 win over Manchester United while Manchester City trounced Aston Villa and Arsenal overwhelmed Tottenham Hotspur.
Emmanuel Adebayor went from Tottenham Hotspur's hero to zero against former club Arsenal as he scored and was then sent off in a dramatic 5-2 North London derby defeat. The Togolese striker, who angered Arsenal fans when leaving for Manchester City in 2009 before this summer making a permanent transfer to Spurs after an initial loan, set up a typically hectic meeting at Emirates Stadium with the opener. Adebayor's goal added to his lack of popularity among Gunners fans following his controversial celebration three Years Ago for City when scoring in his first reunion with his ex-employers and then his penalty goal in last season's ultimate repeat 5-2 defeat for Spurs. But his emotions got the better of him shortly after the quarter-hour mark on Saturday and his red card for a lunge on Santi Cazorla allowed Arsenal to come back and win through Per Mertesacker, Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, Cazorla and Theo Walcott despite Gareth Bale's consolation. Tottenham started well and, less than a minute after a Wi ...

According to the Daily Mail, Arsene Wenger is considering making a major change from a back four and a 4-3-3 variant formation to a back three. The Daily Mail report says that Wenger wanted to make the change before Arsenal's trip to Schalke following a fairly abject defensive performance against Manchester United, but decided against it based on the lack of time there would be to prepare. Playing a back three would allow Wenger to get all of Laurent Koscielny, Per Mertesacker and Thomas Vermaelen into the side, and would also give license to Bacary Sagna and Kieran Gibbs, as wing backs, to join into the attack with less fear about leaving space behind on the counter attack. And while playing three at the back has gotten a bad rap because of Roberto Mancini's fiddling about with it at Manchester City, a switch to three at the back was crucial to their comeback against Tottenham Hotspur on the weekend; Tottenham couldn't deal with Maicon's overlaps.
